Adam Schiff Compares Trump to Hitler and Mussolini

( – On November 13th, Rep. Adam Schiff told MSNBC’s Jen Psaki that our nation’s former Commander-in-Chief is using language similar to that of Benito Mussolini and Adolph Hitler in his efforts to “dehumanize” his opposition. The former Biden administration mouthpiece asked the legislator to comment on what she said was Donald Trump’s recent “authoritarian rhetoric.”

Psaki also accused the Trump camp of doubling down on dictatorial phrases and asked Schiff why he thought Republicans like Ronna McDaniel were choosing to remain silent on the topic. Are their reasons for failing to comment based on fear, or do they actually “agree with him?” she asked.

Schiff opined that fear was involved, but that cowardice was also in play. He accused the “Republicans behind Trump” of knowing exactly who and what he is but said they have chosen not to stand on principles. The exceptions to his assertion were Adam Kinzinger and Liz Cheney, who Schiff said had been removed from Congress for exposing the danger posed by the former President.

According to what Schiff told Psaki, Cheney and Kinzinger were the lone elements in the Republican hierarchy that stood for character and the Constitution. Their personal character, he said, was more important than their desire to continue serving in Congress. Others, Schiff said, placed a higher importance on their reelection than on standing up for what was right.

For those who may have forgotten, Rep. Schiff was censured by his colleagues in June for his role in the Russian collusion narrative against former President Trump that led to the ex-Commander-in-Chief’s impeachment. Fellow members in the House determined that Schiff had knowingly misrepresented a number of facts in the case.

At the time of his reprimand, Schiff told reporters he considered the reprimand to be an honor. After leaving her position as White House press secretary, Psaki landed a primetime gig on what many feel is the most liberal outlet in the nation.
