Schiff Mocked After Suggesting Ukraine Aid Necessary So We Don’t Have to “Fight Russia Here” in the U.S.

House Intel Chair and lead impeachment manager Adam Schiff was mocked for suggesting Ukraine aid was essential so “that they can fight Russia over there, and we don’t have to fight Russia here,” suggesting a scenario that some interpret as Russia literally invading the United States.

Saagar Enjeti of “The Hill” tweeted:

We’re just going to let this unhinged statement pass?

Do people realize the policy this locks Dems into from here forward..

“The United States aids Ukraine and her people so that they can fight Russia over there, and we don’t have to fight Russia here.”

Fox News reports Schiff, chairman of the House Intelligence Committee, suggested at one point that military aid to Ukraine was essential so the U.S. would not have to fight Russians at home, as soldiers did in the videogame “Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2.”

“The United States aids Ukraine and her people so that they can fight Russia over there, and we don’t have to fight Russia here,” Schiff said, drawing rebukes from commentators.
