Schiff Accuses Trump of Trying to 'Overturn' the 'Legitimate Results'
House Intelligence Committee chairman says race was fair
House Intelligence Committee Chairman Rep. Adam Schiff (D-CA) has accused President Donald Trump of attempting “to overturn the results," in a bid to hold onto power.
During an interview on CNN’s “Situation Room,” Schiff said Trump was trying to “to overturn the results of a perfectly fair and well-executed election.”
Host Wolf Blitzer said:
“The president claims he won the election and tweeting all about that and congratulated Republicans in one Michigan county for initially refuse to go certify the election, but a couple of hours today they did, in fact, certify."
"He is pursuing a very flimsy argument in various courts, and most of them already have been rejected."
"This may be simply a bumbling attempt. Is the sitting president of the United States trying to overturn the legitimate results of this election?”
“I think without question, that is exactly what he is trying to do."
"He is failing, but, nonetheless, it’s staggering that a sitting president of the United States would try to overturn the results of a perfectly fair and well-executed election, remarkably well-executed election during a pandemic," Schiff added.
"It’s just extraordinary," Schiff stated.
"It’s so damaging. He is going to fail.
"In the process, he is dragging down out Democracy."
"He is causing millions of Americans to distrust our own election system," he added.
"He is making, frankly, the United States into a mockery on the world stage," Schiff said.
'We used to be the champions of democracy around the world before this administration."
"What are they to think now when we have a president of the United States who says America is not capable of holding a fair election?"
"It is so damaging. Yet it’s not at all surprising for this president.”
Schiff's comments come after Neon Nettle reported that Dominion's top engineer allegedly assured Antifa activists that he had "made f**king sure" that President Trump wouldn't win the presidential race.
Trump’s re-election campaign has filed a flurry of lawsuits contesting the vote count in battleground states.
