Pathetic, Vile Adam Schiff: “Your Head Will Be On A Pike”

As the closing arguments for Democrat House impeachment managers mercifully came to a close, Lead Manager Adam Schiff, invoked a report from CBS News that a Trump confidant had warned, “Vote against the President and your head will be on a pike.”

After that remark, the generally respectful mood in the Senate immediately changed. Republicans across their side of the chamber groaned, gasped and said, “That's not true.” One key moderate Republican, Sen. Susan Collins of Maine, looked directly at Schiff, shook her head and said, “Not true."
“Not only have I never heard the ‘head on the pike’ line," Collins said in a statement, "but also I know of no Republican senator who has been threatened in any way by anyone in the administration.”

She had been listening intently to Schiff's presentation and writing down some of his points. When he made the “pike” comment, she looked directly at Schiff and slowly and repeatedly shook her head back and forth. When he finished his speech and the trial adjourned, Sens. John Cornyn (R-TX) and John Barrasso (R-WY) made a beeline for her seat. Collins again shook her head and said, “No.”

Sen. James Lankford (R-OK), told reporters the CBS report is "completely, totally false."

“None of us have been told that,” he added. "That's insulting and demeaning to everyone to say that we somehow live in fear and that the President has threatened all of us.''

Sen. Mike Braun (R-IN), asked about the remark, added, "I could hear the gasps." 

Some Democrats also distanced themselves from the House Intelligence Committee chairman. Sen. Joe Manchin (D-WV), who has not said if he will vote to acquit or convict the President, added that he also believed Schiff crossed the line. 

"I don't know why people do that," Manchin added. "That could have been left out that's for sure."
