Schiff Goes Into Overdrive=> Introduces Bill to Make it Difficult For Trump to Grant Pardons in Russia Witch Hunt
Leaker and liar Adam Schiff (D-CA) went into overdrive Wednesday and introduced a bill that would make it difficult for President Trump to pardon anyone caught up in Mueller’s witch hunt.
Ranking member of the House Intel Committee and shill for Putin, Adam Schiff introduced legislation Wednesday aiming to make it more difficult for President Trump to pardon anyone caught up in Mueller’s witch hunt.
The bill, called the Abuse of Pardon Prevention Act was drawn up in response to Trump’s pardon of Scooter Libby.
Scooter Libby was former Vice President Dick Cheney’s Chief of Staff who was convicted for lying to the FBI and obstruction of justice.
Many took Trump’s pardon of Scooter Libby as a message to Mueller.
Adam Schiff said in a statement as reported by the Washington Examiner:
“President Trump already has signaled that he is willing to use his constitutional powers in order to protect those who remain loyal to him, even if they are convicted of obstruction or perjury. By pardoning Scooter Libby last week, Trump has sent a clear and unmistakable message to potential witnesses against him or members of his family that: ‘if you have my back, I’ll have yours.’”
“At a time of constitutional peril, it is incumbent on the Congress to stand up for the rule of law by creating a strong disincentive to the president issuing pardons to protect himself and obstruct ongoing investigations.”
By pardoning Scooter Libby, President Trump signaled he could use the pardon to shield himself and those who remain loyal to him.

President Trump has left the idea of pardoning General Flynn on the table.
General Flynn should be pardoned and reimbursed for his legal fees; he was ambushed and caught off guard by Strzok and McCabe.
Paul Manafort was indicted by a federal grand jury on many charges that have nothing to do with the 2016 presidential election as Mueller roves outside of his mandate without any oversight.
Manafort has pleaded not guilty to the charges and continues to fight Mueller and Rosenstein in court.
The Republicans have the majority in the House so it is highly unlikely Schiff’s legislation will make any headway.
