Rep. Adam Schiff is calling for an independent commission to investigate the federal government’s reaction and response to the coronavirus emergency, but he won’t like what it would turn up about himself and his own focus on impeaching President Donald Trump rather than responding to the emerging crisis, Rep. Doug Collins said Thursday.

“I think there’s going to actually be a look back here that I’m not sure Adam Schiff wants to talk about,” the Georgia Republican said on Fox News’ “Fox and Friends.” “That is China’s role in this and the fact that, as Intelligence Committee chairman, he was so wrapped up in impeachment during when all this hit that I’m not sure there was a slow response on both sides because no one was looking at this.

“I’m not sure he would like the outcome of this report any more than he did any of the other reports that he had this past year,” Collins added.

Wednesday, Schiff tweeted he is working on a bill calling for a nonpartisan commission so the nation can “better prepare for the next pandemic.”

Collins said Schiff is calling for a commission because he is obsessed with bringing down Trump.

“Even in isolation, it sounds like all he wants to do is focus on the president,” Collins said. “The president has done a good job as he is focused on this. We have all learned from this crisis as it goes on, and the president has been listening to the advisors and moving forward.”

However, he said, “there can be no mistake that in the [months] of January and December when Adam Schiff was leading this country down a sham impeachment that there was [a] distraction on Capitol Hill…for him to come back at this point and try to, you know, regain the spotlight from his failed attempts at impeachment, it’s just — it’s sad for the American people.”

  1. Well, there are laws on the books for interfering with the duties of the Commander in Chief. Some on the verge of treason with equal penalties.
    Schiffty’s a liar (lawyer), he should know what he’s doing; although his track record isn’t very good. You know there had to be a reason he went into politics instead of his own firm.

    He’s already being investigated, facing possible charges; what’s one more work order for the FBI going to hurt? Just like any other common criminal who’s already going to jail. There’s a mindset of ‘going all in’.

    Maybe all this martial law quarantine is making his head spin. He misses the media attention.
    He’s made such a fool of himself already. He couldn’t do any worse, right?

    Personally, I would rather he now go to prison. He should be let go, just like all the other criminals in Californica, and let him take his chances with the public . . . We used to tar-and-feather turncoats; and hang them.
