Schiff: Amash Isn’t Enough Bipartisan Support For Trump Impeachment

Rep. Adam Schiff (D-CA) on Sunday morning said that Rep. Justin Amash’s (R-MI) slam against President Donald Trump’s “impeachable conduct” isn’t enough to count as bipartisan support for impeachment proceedings.

“Face the Nation” host Margaret Brennan asked Schiff if Amash’s comment fulfilled House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s (D-CA) standard for impeachment requiring support on both sides of the aisle.

“I think that what the Speaker has referred to, and I have as well, is can an impeachment be even potentially successful in the Senate?” Schiff responded. “We see no signs of that yet.”

However, he praised Amash for speaking up at all, saying that the GOP lawmaker “showed more courage that any other Republican in the House or Senate.”
