If you’ve watched any coverage of the impeachment proceedings this week, you know that Adam Schiff has talked endlessly, making the same lame case Democrats made in the House.
He really let the mask slip on Wednesday, however.
He basically admitted that this is all about the 2020 election, and even cast doubt on the legitimacy of the outcome.
The Federalist reports:
Adam Schiff Is Already Claiming The Illegitimacy Of A Trump Reelection
During his monotonous two-hour rehashing of the case against the president, Democratic House Manager Adam Schiff argued that if president Trump is allowed to run for president this year, “we cannot be assured that the vote will be fairly won.”
That’s right, nine months out from election day Schiff and the Democrats are laying the groundwork to call a Trump second term illegitimate, just as have they done for the entirety of the first term.
Remember the good old days, back in 2016 when there was no chance Hillary Clinton could lose and the only question was whether angry Trump voters, or even Trump himself would accept the outcome of the free and fair election? Boy did that narrative bust.
Instead, the exact opposite happened. Trump won and it is the Democrats who now express grave concerns about the sanctity of our election results.
Watch the video:

Democrats seem to have forgotten what Hillary Clinton said about this sort of thing back in 2016.
Donald Trump refused to say that he’d respect the results of this election.
That’s a direct threat to our democracy.

Schiff gave the game away.
This is all about politics and the 2020 election.
