Appearing on MSNBC, Rep. Adam Schiff tied coronavirus casualties to the “malfeasance” of Trump and the failure to convict and remove him from office during the impeachment trial.
Well, we certainly told the senators that he was not going to change, and there was no way to constrain him. That he is who he is, and he would continue to operate the way he had, and indeed, that’s exactly what we’ve seen since.
The one thing we dramatically understated is when we asked the question, ‘If you found him guilty, do you really need to remove him given there is another election only nine months away, how much damage could he really do?’
We said a lot, but little did we know just how great the casualties would be. Some days we lose the equivalent of the number of people we lost on 9/11.
You know, I think that there is no way we could have foreseen just how tragic his malfeasance would be in his remaining months in the administration.
