Democrats could not contain their glee.
Leftists celebrated that Joe Biden’s plan to deputize the justice system to serve as part of his re-election campaign paid off.
But Adam Schiff said five words about Donald Trump that Democrats will live to regret.
ABC News reported that former Trump chief of staff Mark Meadows accepted an immunity deal from Joe Biden prosecutor Jack Smith and testified against Trump in the witch hunt over him contesting the results of the 2020 election.
Adam Schiff gloated over this news during an interview with MSNBC’s Joy Reid.
“I think it is very big news. In a way, it’s not surprising. People never expected Mark Meadows to be a Steve Bannon, you know, gleefully riding into jail on behalf of Donald Trump. That is not Mark Meadows. He never signed up to go to jail. He was carrying out Donald Trump’s dirty work every day, but self-preservation has kicked in. And it appears he is cooperating. The challenge with him is he’s written a book which was touting all the Trump lies. He’s told a lot of the Trump lies himself, so he is not a perfect witness by any means,” Schiff began.
Schiff tied this news to the plea deals Fulton County District Attorney Fani Willis struck with Trump lawyers Sidney Powell, Ken Chesebro, and Jenna Ellis.
“But this is an important development. You add to it these other lawyers surrounding Trump, Sidney Powell, Jenna Ellis, Chesebro, and others, and the walls start closing in on Donald Trump,” Schiff added.
“I think both Donald Trump needs to be worried about them providing the state’s evidence, but also Rudy Giuliani needs to be concerned. These were a couple of his right-hand people. You know, it’s all cumulative,” Schiff concluded.
Schiff’s use of the phrase “the walls start closing in” triggered bad memories for Democrats about how during the Russian-collusion hoax the media claimed every new development in this case was the “beginning of the end” for Trump.
And there is good reason to believe that this story is another example of Democrats jumping the gun.
