Between Democratic politicians, liberal commentators, Never Trumpers and their media allies, you’d have thought House Intel Chair Adam Schiff (D-CA) was the greatest lawyer/congressman/orator America has ever known after he did his part in presenting the House’s impeachment case against President Trump.
But one Democratic candidate for president accidentally slipped up this week and admitted an inconvenient truth about Schiff’s case: that the evidence just isn’t there.
Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA), who is struggling in some early primary/caucus state polling and who is still smarting after her confrontation with Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) last month over her “sexism” claims regarding that now-infamous December 2018 non-aggression pact meeting, took to the Twitter machine on Monday to make more declarations about what she will do “on day one” as president.
Inadvertently, Warren said the quiet part about Schiff and Co.’s presentation out loud:
Try as they might, the White House should know that the evidence against Donald Trump will not be hidden forever. On day one as president, I will order the release of every document related to this impeachment inquiry. The American people deserve to know the truth.

But wait a minute. I thought the House’s case against Trump was supposed to be rock solid?!
A whole lotta folks were on a similar wavelength:
Well, well, well! No evidence now, buuuuuut… Democrats are evil.

You collect evidence BEFORE impeachment, not after. Next.

Plus whatever else is hidden on secret server?
