WATCH: Schiff⁩ suggests “50,000 Americans” are dead because Trump wasn’t impeached

Appearing on MSNBC, Rep. Adam Schiff (D-CA) suggested 50k Americans are dead in “significant part” because Trump wasn’t impeached.

Adam Schiff:

There is one thing that, really, I have to say haunts me from the trial and it was before that snippet you showed where we knew we had to answer the question to the senators, okay, essentially, house managers, you’ve proved him guilty [sic] , does he really need to be removed after all?  We have an election in nine months. how much damage could he really do? and we posed that question to the Senate and we answered it by saying that he could do an awful lot of damage but frankly, Chris, I don’t think we had any idea how much damage he would go on to do in the months ahead. There are 50,000 Americans now who are dead, in significant part because of his incompetence, because of his inability to think beyond himself and put the country first. I don’t think we would have ever anticipated that his brand of narcissism and his brand of incompetence would be so fatal to the American people.
