Schiff Mocked Online After Claiming “We Take No Joy” in Moving to Impeach Trump

Surrounded by fellow Democrats, House Intel Chair and Trump nemesis Adam Schiff claimed “We take no joy in having to move down this road and proceed with the impeachment inquiry, but neither do we shrink from it”.

Schiff also tweeted

“The Framers understood a president might sacrifice our national security, fail to defend the Constitution, and place his personal interests above all else. And they prescribed a remedy: impeachment.

We take no joy in this inquiry, but nor do we shrink from our responsibility.”

Some Trump supporters did not buy the claim and sounded off online.

Kelly Wolf called it “Another big ol fat SCHIFF lie.”

“We take no joy”. Oh, Schifty @RepAdamSchiff that’s likely to be your biggest lie yet. I imagine you doing cartwheels down the corridors of the secreted basement inquiry rooms.

We take no joy in these impeachment hearings;
A lie so huge it’s hilarious

Hahahaha it’s his sole joy in life!! This is the best Christmas present ever for Shifty! He’s wanted this since 2016, don’t be blind people!
