The hell, Schiffless?

Schiff: Trump Will Sell Alaska To Russia If We Don’t Impeach Him

(H/T: Instapundit.)

“Trump could offer Alaska to the Russians in exchange for support in the next election, or decide to move to Mar-A-Lago permanently and leave Jared Kushner to run the country, delegating to him the decision whether they go to war.”

Under what possible legal theory would any of that pass muster in the Senate? Remember the Senate? If this is even possible, they’d have to approve it.  Supreme Court would probably get involved, too, and I’m pretty sure they’d be a big fat no on this one.  Constitution is pretty clear on the fact that the Senate, not the President, declares war (although there’s that pesky War Powers Resolution that lets him punch troops for 60 days and ask forgiveness later, of course).  Plus, we fought a big war back between 1861-1865 — maybe you’ve heard of it — that pretty much put paid to the idea that we’d let states get away from the Union.  The latter, of course, may no longer be taught in California schools, so you may have an excuse, there.

Even so, Schiffy, you’ve been lying, er, making stuff up all along, of course, but my goodness, this right here takes the proverbial cake. Keep troweling on the pancake, buddy, you’ll make senior clown yet.

The bottom line is you’re a fucking moron. You should be ejected from the House so hard, the splashdown would be in the Chesapeake.

And your little dog Nadler, too.
