Adam Schiff Worried Trump Will Throw Him Prison: ‘We’re Taking This Seriously’

Adam Schiff and members of the January 6 House committee are reportedly taking former president Donald Trump’s threats to throw them in prison seriously.

As Trump is poised to win the Republican presidential nomination, some lawmakers are becoming more agitated about the prospect of Trump taking back the White House.

Last month, Trump called for the J6 committee members to be jailed. In August, he also said he would “have no choice” but to lock up deep-state stooges who had lied to the American people.

“If he intends to eliminate our constitutional system and start arresting his political enemies, I guess I would be on that list,” said Rep. Zoe Lofgren (D-San Jose).

“One thing I did learn on the committee is to pay attention and listen to what Trump says, because he means it.”

Lofgren admitted she doesn’t have a plan in place to counter Trump’s retribution.

However, Rep. Adam B. Schiff said he is now having “real-time conversations” with his staff to make sure he stays safe if Trump follows through on his threats.

“We’re taking this seriously, because we have to,” Schiff said.

“We’ve seen this movie before … and how perilous it is to ignore what someone is saying when they say they want to be a dictator.”

“I’m fearful that the Supreme Court is deliberately slow-walking this,” Schiff said in an interview.

“The claim is borderline frivolous … they’re drawing it out just enough to make it almost infeasible to try [the cases] before the election,” Schiff said.

“It’s still possible to get it done,” he added.

“And I think voters deserve to have that information. “

“This was the first time in which the Congress was so far out ahead of the department, and given how slowly we move here there was no reason for that to happen,” Schiff said.

Former Rep. Liz Cheney (R-Wyo.) called Trump’s legal moves “a delaying tactic.”

“It cannot be the case that a president of the United States can attempt to overturn an election and seize power and that our justice system is incapable of holding a trial, of holding him to account, before the next election,” she told a crowd at Iowa’s Drake University last week.

In March, House Oversight Committee chairman Rep. Barry Loudermilk (R-GA) said the January 6 Committee members may be referred to the DOJ for criminal prosecution after reports they hid and destroyed crucial evidence.

As we highlighted earlier, Former Rep. Liz Cheney and the January 6 Committee member hid evidence that exonerated former President Donald Trump after he called for 10,000 National Guard troops to be deployed at the U.S. Capitol Building.

The January 6 committee members were warned to reserve all of the evidence by then-incoming Speaker of the House Rep. Kevin McCarthy (R-CA).

Loudermilk told Just the News that prosecution may be on the cards.

The House Republican leading the current review of security and intelligence failures during the 2021 Capitol riot put former lawmakers and staff on the now-defunct Democrat-run January 6 committee on notice Wednesday that he may make referrals for criminal obstruction or House ethics violations.

Rep. Barry Loudermilk, R-Ga, the chairman of the House Administration Oversight Subcommittee, told Just the News he is frustrated that videotapes of interviews, transcripts, and other evidence that Congress gathered under the prior January 6 inquiry run by Democrats were deleted, destroyed, moved to other federal agencies or locked behind passwords that have not been recovered, and he believes some form of accountability is warranted.
