Adam Schiff says he wants to abolish the Electoral College with 'discrete amendments' to the Constitution

Anti-Trump Democrat Rep. Adam Schuff (D-CA) has called for the Electoral College to be abolished during a new interview.

On Friday night, Schiff, head of the House Intelligence Committee, told HBO host Bill Maher that the U.S. Constitution "needs fundamental change."

The conversation saw both agreeing the Electoral College should be eliminated from the American election system.

Schiff said that he supports a rewrite of the U.S. Constitution and amendments that would abolish the Electoral College.

He warned, however, that President Donald Trump and the Republicans would likely hijack the process.

The Democratic congressman said he would prefer to use "discrete amendments" to the Constitution.

Schiff said he would use constitutional rewrites to quietly overturn controversial Supreme Court rulings.

Maher claimed that any changes to the Founding Fathers' framework are difficult because many Americans believe the constitution was "literally delivered by Jesus."

After the late-night host told Schiff that many Americans believe that the Constitution was written by Jesus Christ, prompting laughter from the audience, Maher suggested that the Constitution needs “fundamental change.”

“Where are you on that issue?” Maher asked Schiff.

Schiff agreed and said that he would not look to the Constitution if he were drafting a new one.

He cited several "mistakes" that, he claims, the Founding Fathers made in the original document.

Both Schiff and Maher said they would be in favor of getting rid of the Electoral College system.

Today, such a move would require two-thirds of the House, two-thirds of the Senate, and three-fourths of all states to agree upon.

Schiff added that he would not trust Republicans currently in power to draft a new Constitution because Sen. Mike Lee and Sen. Mitch McConnell are "jokers."
