House Judiciary Chairman and designated impeachment manager Adam Schiff claimed President Donald Trump's alleged misconduct couldn’t be proven at the ballot box, but only through his impeachment.

Schiff made the remarks during his opening statement on Wednesday.

“If not remedied by his conviction in the Senate and removal from office, President Trump’s abuse of his office and obstruction of Congress will permanently alter the balance of power among the branches of government,” the congressman said.

The California Democrat accused Trump of attempting to “use the powers of the presidency to cheat in an election.”

“For precisely this reason, the president’s misconduct cannot be decided at the ballot box, for we cannot be assured that the vote will be fairly won,” he said.

“The president has shown he believes he is above the law and scornful of constraint,” Schiff added.

On Wednesday, Neon Nettle reported Schiff provided false information in Trump's impeachment case after he "mischaracterized" evidence, bombshell new documents reportedly show.

The Democrat appears to have twisted a piece of evidence in a way that makes it more fitting with the Democrats' anti-Trump case for impeaching the president.

The issue stems from a letter that Schiff sent last week to his fellow impeachment "manager" - House Judiciary Chairman Jerry Nadler (D-NY).

The letter summarizes “a trove of evidence from Lev Parnas, an indicted former associate of Trump’s personal attorney Rudy Giuliani," according to Politico.

“In one section of the letter, Schiff claims that Parnas ‘continued to try to arrange a meeting with President Zelensky,’ citing a specific text message exchange where Parnas tells Giuliani: ‘trying to get us Mr Z.’

"The remainder of the exchange — which was attached to Schiff’s letter — was redacted.”

Earlier his week, Schiff stated that removing Trump from office was a matter of urgency because "he is threatening to cheat in the next election."

Schiff added that urgency is the reason why Democrats did not force witnesses to testify during the impeachment inquiry through court orders.

“We subpoenaed many of these witnesses, and because of the president’s obstruction, they ignore those lawful subpoenas,” Schiff told ABC News's “This Week with George Stephanopoulos.”
