Adam Schiff

Breitbart: On Wednesday’s broadcast of CNN’s “Situation Room,” incoming House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff (D-CA) called for the Justice Department’s Office of Legal Counsel (OLC) to reevaluate its opinion that a sitting president can’t be indicted “under circumstances in which the failure to do so may mean that person escapes justice.”

Schiff said, “I think the Justice Department needs to reexamine that OLC opinion…that you cannot indict a sitting president under circumstances in which the failure to do so may mean that person escapes justice. Because if it were the case that it was now or never, that if you wait until after the president leaves office, they can no longer be brought to justice, that ought to create, certainly an exception to that OLC rule, if not mean revisiting and revising the rule altogether.”

He added, “I don’t think that the Justice Department ought to take the position — and it’s certainly not one that would be required in any way by the Constitution — that a president, merely by being in office, can be above the law, can escape the enforcement of the law, by essentially waiting out the law, by waiting out the statute of limitations. So, there ought to be a mechanism to make sure that that is not the case, whether that means revisiting the OLC opinion that — and allowing the indictment of a sitting president and staying the prosecution, or allowing both the indictment and prosecution.”

5 Comments on SCHIFF: DOJ NEEDS TO REEVALUATE WHETHER A SITTING PRESIDENT CAN BE INDICTED

  1. I hope Mr Schiff remembers how many people voted for President Trump. I think it would make his life a living hell if he ever was able to do what is on his agenda. I would be really really scared.

  2. Adam “Schiffless” is a pathetic human being whoso sole purpose in life seems to be professing his hatred for President Trump and the conservative policies he promotes to protect Americans from an onslaught…an invasion of foreign nationals hell bent on entering this country illegally…”by whatever means necessary.”

    The Dems have nothing but loud mouths and a sycophantic, hate-Trump media. A sitting president cannot be indicted, and can’t be impeached for anything that occurred before he assumed the office. Schiff, Pelosi, Schumer, Waters, Durbin, Booker, Warren, Kamala Harris, Jeh Johnson and the cabal of leftover snollygosters at the FBI, the DOJ and State who have absolutely conspired to bring down this president deserve to be indicted, tried, convicted and relieved of all official duties. Their behavior has been despicable!!!

  3. if anyone NEEDS INDICTED AND ARRESTED, IT’S THIS FAGGOT TRAITOR.
    WHO UIS ALSO A PEDOPHILE.

  4. Schitt comes from CA which is totally screwed up so what can you expect from this Communist, Socialist, Globalist, DemocRAT Soros sponsored Jackass?? He’s totally FUBAR!!!

  5. This guy is a dumb as a brick. But then most of his base are as well, so he can posit anything he wants without accountability. I’m no legal mind but all I have heard from those who are, say that the Constitution is clear that a sitting President can’t be indicted.
