Adam Schiff, the liberal hero of impeachment, is a wholly owned subsidiary of the military-industrial complex and a fervent exponent of permanent war.

..........................

We’d like to be on his side. After all, he’s working hard to take down Donald Trump, one of the worst presidents in American history. But let’s not get carried away in fandom. 

Schiff is a dangerous warmonger, and his efforts to fuel paranoia about Russia only serve to feed that agenda. It would be admirable if Schiff’s impeachment crusade was limited to Trump’s corruption. But something else drives him: he wants a proxy war in Ukraine with Russia, and he has had for some time.

I heard Liza Featherstone interviewed by Mitch Jeserich as part of KPFA/Pacifica's coverage of the impeachment trial. In case you've been wondering why Adam Schiff says "Russia" over and over and over again, this article explains.

I also happen to think the whole Russiagate/Ukrainegate/Impeachment is a misguided, dishonest, and losing adventure for the Democrats, but that's another story: Aaron Mate:Trump Impeachment: A Misguided Move?

Fred, if you don't know what to this , try reading the words of the law experts rather than that rabid blog.

Yes, we get it, "you happen to think..."

The reason Senator Schiff points to Russia, is because Mueller did and because it is the observable reality... except to the those who see only what they. believe to be true.

A public used to endless punditry, drowning in words do not listen to top law experts or historians as they say--one and all-- THIS is an historical moment that will impact the future of the presidency. THIS is about law, not politics. This is about accountability... and a dire warning!

I am exhausted from listening to the endless spin by those 'howling wolves' on the truth of what is unfolding, of what the brilliant Adam Schiff is doing. His Speech Goes Viral, Delighting the Left and Enraging the Right , who are scandalizing and minimizing in endless repetition this important Congressional duty, as if it is some MSM media event.

"Some were moved to tears while others saw a 'wild -eyed nut" but truth will prevail. The future will be the judge! NOT the Jacobin's "howling wolves."

You are so fortunate that a free press is celebrated at OEN, and such howling and such a warped perspective is printed.

You may correct me if I am wrong, but my understanding of the Mueller report is that it concluded there was no credible evidence linking Trump or his campaign to any collusion with Russia. On the other hand, Mueller did suggest that, depending on Justice Dept. rules and precedent, there might be evidence that his committee experienced obstruction. He also indicted 12 Russian intelligence officials, claiming they had "covertly monitored the computers, implanted hundreds of files containing malicious computer code, and stole emails and other documents" from the DNC which showed Clinton and the DNC's attempts to keep Sanders from the nomination. You could call it a "safe" indictment, since there was not chance that a trial would ever take place.

You probably know that those charges are contended by many, since they stemmed from an accusation by Cloudstrike, who was called in by the Democrats to perform the investigation and who has never allowed an independent (much less by the FBI) investigation of the evidence. In fact, Trump's request to Zelinsky in the phone call to investigate Cloudstrike stems from that situation, although the idea that the server evidence might be hidden in Ukraine appears unfounded. Several of the witnesses the Democrats presented at the House Intelligence hearings incidentally mentioned the strong involvement of some Ukrainians in support of the Clinton candidacy, also mentioning that it was not surprising, given the diplomatic cover given to that and anything to do with Biden there, that Trump would show some interest in finding out just what had occurred.

I don't know what your reference to "howling wolves" comes from, particularly in reference to Jacobin Magazine: your link merely points to another of your own comments. Aaron Mate' also writes for The Nation (another "rabid blog"?) and I've heard him interviewed often on Democracy Now and other Left and Liberal media, most recently during KPFA's coverage of the hearings. Matt Taibbi, a well known journalist and contributing editor to Rolling Stone, has similar positions on Russiagate and the Impeachment to Mate''s and what I said. Here are 13 more "howling wolves" on the subject of the email hack from another "rabid blog", Consortium News: Intel Vets Challenge 'Russia Hack' Evidence.

And, yes, isn't it fortunate that OEN allows a certain diversity of views to be published. But it would be strange for it not to allow a discussion of warmongering characters in the pocket of the armaments industry such as the tiresome and so full of himself Adam Schiff.

Thank you Fred. Adam Schiff is indeed a deranged lunatic. His behavior is dangerous and irresponsible. I guess lust for power does that to people. Some people think he's brilliant apparently. Goddess help us.
