Democratic Congressman Adam Schiff characterized President Trump as a “seriously flawed human being” on CNN’s “State of the Union With Jake Tapper” Sunday.


Schiff said, “Well, look, I don’t think anyone is particularly surprised by what has been revealed in the Wolff book in terms of the questions that people working closest with the president have about his capacity to do the job. I don’t think there’s anyone in Congress frankly of either party who does not concur at least privately with those observations and concerns. Certainly few are willing to express them publicly in Congress, and I think that’s to the detriment of our institution.”

“The big question for us, though, is, you know, plainly we have a seriously flawed human being in the Oval Office. Will those flaws be allowed to permeate the whole of government? And I see honestly, Jake, some very disturbing signs that they are.” (RELATED: Rep. Schiff Spent 21 Hours On TV Since January)

He continued, “And, Among the most serious from my point of view are these reports that the Justice Department at the president’s urging is now investigating Hillary Clinton again. That would be a violation of all the protections we put in place post-Watergate, and no one should imagine that if that’s the case that the president won’t similarly badger the Justice Department to investigate anyone who runs against him in 2020.” (RELATED: Trey Gowdy Blasts Adam Schiff Over Statements About Trump-Russia Probe [VIDEO])
