Fitton: Trump shouldn't be on trial, Adam Schiff should

Description:

Judicial Watch president Tom Fitton discusses the FISA Court's decision to select Obama's Department of Justice lawyer to oversee the FBI's abuse reforms and says the impeachment trial against President Trump is corrupt.


Congressman Doug Collins sounds off on Rep. Adam Schiff and the intelligence community in reaction to ‘selective' classified information leaks, plus he opens up about his current working relationship with President Donald Trump after the impeachment hearings and Senate trial, his own run for a Senate seat, and beyond on Newsmax TV's "The Chris Salcedo Show."

Michael Bloomberg receives preferential treatment by the DNC.

FOX News operates the FOX News Channel (FNC),
Rep. Adam Schiff, D-Calif., claimed that President Trump "betrayed his oath to protect and defend the Constitution" during his closing arguments for the Senate impeachment trial.
Rep. Adam Schiff tells Lawrence O'Donnell that the White House's handling of coronavirus has been "unfortunately plagued with incompetence" in terms of testing and knowing who is infected after an aide to Senator Maria Cantwell tested positive for the virus. "We're now in the position of trying to make up for lost time that we will never get back," he said. Aired on 3/11/2020.

JOINING US TONIGHT IS TOM FIT
ON,

--TOM FITTON.
I KNOW YOU ARE WORK HARD ON THIS
ISSUE.
HOW DOES JUDGE ROBERTS PERMIT
THIS TO HAPPEN?
>> THAT'S A GOOD QUESTION.
THE FISA COURTS WERE OBVIOUSLY
LIED TO.
ONE OF THE PROBLEMS WE UNCOVERED
IS THEY KNEW ABOUT THIS
CORRUPTION BUT DID NOTHING ABOUT
IT.
WE ASKED FOR TRAN SCRIPTS OF THE
HEARINGS OF THE FISA COURTS
ABOUT THESE WARRANTS THAT WERE
AT ISSUE.
THEY WERE TARGETED CANDIDATE
TRUMP, THEN THE PRESIDENT OF THE
UNITED STATES.
THE JUSTICE DEPARTMENT ASK'S
ADMISSION THAT THE FISA COURTS
HELD NO HEARINGS ON THIS.
WE HAVE AN OBAMA APPOINTEE
RUNNING A FISA COURT.
EDITION NAITS AS A SPECIAL
FRIEND OF THE COURT TO RESPOND
TO THE ASK INFORMATION PUT
FORWARD BY WRAY.
THIS ANTI-TRUMP ACTIVIST.
HE'S OUT THERE BLOGGING,
ATTACKING THE PRESIDENT OF THE
UNITED STATES.
LOU: HOW IN THE WORLD CAN THIS
HAPPEN?
HOW CAN JOHN ROBERTS LET THIS
HAPPEN?
THERE IS NOTHING INDEPENDENT
ABOUT HIM.
THERE IS NOTHING THAT IS
BALANCED ABOUT HIM.
KRIS IS THE GENERAL COUNSEL FOR
TIME-WARNER THAT IS THE PARENT
COMPANY AND THE SUBSIDIARY LINE
OF CNN.
THIS IS CRAZY STUFF.
AND IT'S IN YOUR FACE CRAZY.
>> THE KOARTS -- ONE OF THE BIG
LIES IS THE INDEPENDENCE OF THE
COURTS IN PRACTICE.
THE COURTS AND THE FBI AND THE
DOJ WORK HAND IN GLOVE IN AREAS
LIKE THIS.
IF YOU LEAVE IT TO THE COURT, IF
YOU LEAVE IT TO THE FBI AND DOJ,
THEY ARE GOING TO WORK TOGETHER.
LOU: WHAT DO YOU HAVE TO DO?
IMPEACH CHIEF JUSTICE OF THE
SUPREME COURT TO SAY THIS HAS
GOT TO STOP?
THIS IS POLITICAL CORRUPTION.
>> THE PRESIDENT IN MY VIEW
NEEDS TO HIGHER A SPECIAL
COUNSEL TO INVESTIGATE THE
SPYGATE CRIMES AND THE CRIMES
BEFORE THE COURTS.
RELYING ON THE AGENCIES TO DO
THE WORK BASED ON PAST
EXPERIENCE, THAT IS NOT GOING TO
HAPPEN.
HOPING THERE WILL BE JUSTICE.
AS TO INDIVIDUAL ATTENTION FROM
THE PRESIDENT, THAT'S NOT THE
WAY THE SYSTEM WORKS IN THIS
CORRUPT D.C.
THE PRESIDENT SHOULD TAKE DIRECT
ACTION AND APPOINT A SPECIAL
COUNSEL PERSONALLY AND DIRECTLY.
LOU: THE PRESIDENT SAYS AS HAVE
MANY OF HIS SUPPORTERS, THAT
MITCH MCCONNELL, THE SENATE
MAJORITY LEADER, SHOULD DISMISS
UPON RECEIPT THESE FARCICAL
ARTICLES OF IMPEACHMENT.
WHY GO THROUGH THE PRETENSE OF
THIS SOLEMN FORMAL APPROACH THAT
IS DESIGNED CLEARLY TO GIVE THIS
DISASTROUS PROCESS PELOSI PUT
TOGETHER SOME SORT OF
CREDIBILITY?
IT'S A WASTE OF EVERYONE'S TIME,
TAXPAYER MONEY.
AND IT'S A FURTHER OFFENSE
AGAINST THE PRESIDENT AND THE
NATION.
>> I HAVE LONG BEEN OF THE VIEW
THERE SHOULD BE NO SENATE TRIAL
ARISING THE COUP ATTEMPT BY
PELOSI AND SCHIFF.
NO DUE PROCESS FOR THE
PRESIDENT.
THE IDEA THEY WOULD BE REWARDED
WITH A FURTHER ABUSIVE TRIAL?
AND IT WILL BE ABUSIVE EVEN
UNDER THE RULES McCONNELL IS
TRYING TO PUT OUT THERE.
THERE IS NO MAJORITY TO BRING IN
WITNESSES PRESIDENT TRUMP WOULD
BRING IN.
BUT THERE IS A MAJORITY TO BRING
IN WITNESSES TO SMEAR PRESIDENT
TRUMP.
EITHER WAY, WITNESSES OR NO
WITNESSES.
IT WILL BE TWO WEEKS OF SMEARING
PRESIDENT TRUMP.
HE WILL WIN IN THE END, BUT BE
ABUSED BY THE PROCESS IN THE
MEANTIME.
THERE SHOULD BE A PRELIMINARY
HEARING BY THE SENATE INTO
PROSECUTORIAL MISCONDUCT BY
SCHIFF.
THAT'S THE ONLY PROCESS THAT
SHOULD BE PUT IN PLACE.
PRESIDENT TRUMP SHOULDN'T BE ON
TRIAL, SCHIFF SHOULD BE.
LOU: MITCH MCCONNELL IS ON THE
PHONE FOR YOU, TOM FITTON.
