With impeachment just about finished, fizzled into ash just as the Democrats were warned that it would be, the most desperate of arguments will soon be upon us.
The left will flail and wail, conjuring every sort of misnomer that their conscience will allow them to utter. We’ll hear about every one of President Trump’s misdeeds and alleged improprieties. By the time it’s all said and done, we’ll be trying to remind ourselves of the name of Stormy Daniels’ lawyer in case it comes up at our weekly trivia spot.
And while I’m just speculating that Stormy will make an appearance in the Senate record, there is no doubt that Russia and Vladimir Putin will feature prominently in the Democrats’ closing arguments. After all, they’ve already somehow tied the military aid that the US gives to Ukraine as somehow benefitting the Russians…who are at war with Ukraine where this military aid is headed.
Today, House Intel Committee Chairman Adam Schiff went there, because, of course. But what he said in this most recent rant went far beyond anything we’ve heard before from him.

“Trump could offer Alaska to the Russians in exchange for support in the next election,” he said. “Or decide to move to Mar-a-Lago personally and let Jared Kushner run the country, delegating to him the decision whether to go to war.”
Schiff said Senate Republicans would create a “runaway presidency” if they failed to remove him from office.
“We have known since the day we brought these charges that the bar to conviction requiring a full two-thirds of the Senate may be prohibitively high,” he said. “And yet, the alternative is a runaway presidency and a nation whose elections are open to the highest bidder.”
If you think this sounds absurd, you are absolutely correct.
Not only is President Trump not going to cede anything strategic to Vladimir Putin’s Russia, he is certainly not going to hand off a state that’s voted reliably red since 1964.
