     Many, if not all, are tired of Schiff's lies and deception.  Lead House impeachment manager Rep. Adam Schiff said he doesn't think he made an unforced error during his closing arguments when he referred to an anonymous threat that the White House reportedly made to Senate Republicans to put their "head on a pike" if they voted against Trump in the impeachment trial. Senate Republicans have vehemently denied the White House ever made such a threat.

     Asked by a reporter if he botched or mishandled his closing argument by bringing up the threat, Schiff responded, "No, I don't think so." "Look, there are going to be efforts to distract from the facts. There are going to be attacks on the managers," Schiff said during a press conference Saturday afternoon after the Senate adjourned for the weekend. "If the worst they could point to is that I referred to a published report by CBS, that's pretty thin gruel."

     GOP senators are vehemently disputing Schiff's remarks Schiff referenced the report during his closing arguments on Friday. "CBS News reported last night that a Trump confidant said that key senators were warned, 'Vote against the president and your head will be on a pike,'" Schiff said. "Now, I don't know if that's true." He equated his "head on a pike' comment to how kings treated those considered traitors to their country.

     The Trump legal team made the Dems case look like the lies they are - easy to see and understand.
