Adam Schiff Slams McCarthy For Defending "Equal Justice" in Trump Case

Representative Adam Schiff sounded off against Speaker Kevin McCarthy and his remarks about defending “equal justice” in the wake of romors of the indictment of former President Donald Trump, which is meant to happen today.

During an appearance on Thursday’s edition of MSNBC’s “The Last Word,” Schiff said he could not stomach McCarthy discussing “equal justice.”

McCarthy told reporters, “We’re not coming here to defend President Trump. We’re coming to defend equal justice.”

Schiff said:

“There was Kevin McCarthy saying I’m not defending him, but let me defend him. More than just him defending him on that stage, he has directed the chair of the Judiciary Committee Jim Jordan to essentially, investigate the Manhattan district attorney.”

“Jordan, and other Republican chairs have written to the DA demanding documents, demanding testimony,” Schiff said.

“They are acting like Donald Trump’s criminal defense lawyers except they also have the subpoena power which makes them dangerous,” he added.

“To hear Kevin McCarthy, also I have to say it was more than I could stomach, talk about equal justice,” he continued.

“As you pointed out what he is interested in is the most unequal justice in which the Republican Party leader Donald Trump gets a pass for any criminal activity. As you mentioned, if the indictment charging Michael Cohen identified individual one or otherwise known as Donald Trump as directing the campaign fraud scheme involving that hush money to porn star then what is the argument that the guy who was directed has to go to jail but the person who did the directing gets a pass?” schiff asked.

“That is not equal justice. But apparently McCarthy must think that, well everybody should be able to pay off porn stars and hide it when they run for office or some such nonsense,” he said.

“But this is Kevin McCarthy, once again throwing all in with Donald Trump defending him with the indefensible.”

Earlier this week, McCarthy warned the people looking to indict Trump he will not tolerate “politically motivated prosecutions.”

“Here we go again — an outrageous abuse of power by a radical DA who lets violent criminals walk as he pursues political vengeance against President Trump,” Mccarthy said.

“I’m directing relevant committees to immediately investigate if federal funds are being used to subvert our democracy by interfering in elections with politically motivated prosecutions,” he said.

Lat week, Trump called for his base to act following the news of his impending arrest.

“NOW ILLEGAL LEAKS FROM A CORRUPT & HIGHLY POLITICAL MANHATTAN DISTRICT ATTORNEYS OFFICE, WHICH HAS ALLOWED NEW RECORDS TO BE SET IN VIOLENT CRIME & WHOSE LEADER IS FUNDED BY GEORGE SOROS, INDICATE THAT, WITH NO CRIME BEING ABLE TO BE PROVEN, & BASED ON AN OLD & FULLY DEBUNKED (BY NUMEROUS OTHER PROSECUTORS!) FAIRYTALE, THE FAR & AWAY LEADING REPUBLICAN CANDIDATE & FORMER PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA, WILL BE ARRESTED ON TUESDAY OF NEXT WEEK. PROTEST, TAKE OUR NATION BACK!” Trump wrote.
