ADAM SCHIFF CLAIMS ‘CONSEQUENCES ARE GONNA BE GRAVE’ IF REPUBLICANS WIN THE MIDTERM ELECTIONS

Democratic Rep. Adam Schiff on MSNBC Tuesday night claimed “the consequences are gonna be grave” if the Republicans win the midterms, and added he thinks President Trump’s “hyping of the caravan … had devastating consequences this week.”

In an interview with Chris Hayes on “All In,” Schiff was asked, “I wonder if you think that the president’s attacks on the office of special counsel Mueller specifically encourage private citizens to sort of take matters into their own hands in ways that we have seen obviously last week with one of the president’s most ardent supporters and the pipe bombs?”

Schiff said, “You know then I think Republicans conclude that Donald Trump has been vindicated. Whatever weak murmurings of conscious we’ve seen about from the Republicans of the president’s conduct we can expect to completely vanish. And if we think this president is out of control now, we can only imagine what he’ll be if he feels he’s somehow been vindicated by voters. It’s one of the many reasons why this is the most important midterm that any of us will participate in, because the consequences are gonna be grave. We’ll either have a check on this president in the form of at least one house or maybe both in the hands of the party not in power in the white house, or we will have a Donald Trump with pretty much unbridled authority.” – READ MORE
