Adam Schiff thought the impeachment hoax was behind him.
But Schiff thought wrong.
And now Adam Schiff got some bad news about one arrest that he did not want to hear.
United States Attorney John Durham announced the arrest of a Connecticut man for threatening the life of Adam Schiff.
The New York Times reported “the man, Robert M. Phelps, 62, of Torrington, Conn., used a meeting request form on Mr. Schiff’s congressional website to send the expletive-laden threats, which were made on Nov. 12, the eve of the first public impeachment hearing, according to a criminal complaint.”
Phelps allegedly made his threats against Schiff by using a contact form on the California Congressman’s official website.
“Prosecutors said that Mr. Phelps wrote, ‘I want to come and see you so I can spit in your face and I want to kill you with my bare hands and smash your sick little round fat lying face in. In the space where people can list their time preferences for a meeting,’ Mr. Phelps wrote, ‘Measure your coffin day,’ according to the criminal complaint,” The Times reported.
No elected official – or any American for that matter – should face threats of physical violence for their participation in the political process.
President Trump and his supporters routinely live under the reality that Democrats feel emboldened to issue whatever threats or even engage in acts of violence because of their hatred for the President.
That does not excuse the threats made against Schiff.
They were illegal and the accused is facing accountability.
President Trump and his supporters just wish Democrats who engaged in lawless threats of violence against conservatives faced the same consequences.
