It's been nothing but turbulence for Adam Schiff for these past months.
CONGRESSMAN ADAM SCHIFF (D-CA): I now recognize myself to give an opening statement in the impeachment inquiry into Donald J. Trump, the 45th President of the United States.
It's of course much more intense now than ever before.
He should resign from office in disgrace, and frankly they should look at him for treason.
Anyone not living under a rock knows that Schiff is one of President Trump's favorite Twitter targets.
I can't even keep up with the President's Twitter attacks on me. My staff has stopped sending them to me, they're too numerous.
You don't follow him on Twitter?
I don't follow him, no. I have more important things to do.
Like make the case against Trump in the Senate trial. But, just months ago, Schiff was in the camp that believed impeachment was not a good idea. So what changed his mind?
What made this a necessity for me and so many of my colleagues is that if the President believes that he can abuse his office, the power of that office, he can fail to defend our national security and there is no accountability, even if the accountability is only in the House, that's too dangerous a prospect to persist.
