There are a number of things to think about here, not least of which is if anything Schiff is saying is even illegal. Obviously, there has been much debate over the legality of elections in the United States. After all, 2 current members of the January 6th committee have challenged the certification of the 2004 and 2016 elections, respectively. There was talk about producing an “alternate” slate of electors who would not cast their ballots for Biden, despite the outcomes in their states.
Ironically, in 2016, Democrats originated the notion that a state’s electors might vote their “conscience” rather than accept the outcome of an election, claiming that Trump could be prevented from winning the presidency. Now, those who didn’t mind entertaining the idea four years ago want to pretend it’s some big conspiracy for Trump allies to talk about it now.
The point is that, even if Schiff were telling the truth and Trump had been a participant in the discussions, it wouldn’t amount to much. Nothing of what was mentioned was ever carried out. In the days following the election, numerous wild ideas were batted around. Trump’s lawyers challenged their legality and it didn’t happen. So, other than Democrats continuing to push a political narrative—which doesn’t add up to the criminal story they claim they have proof for—what exactly are we talking about?
Finally, the notion that the January 6th Commission has concrete evidence against Trump proving he was involved in an illegal conspiracy and yet it hasn’t leaked is so improbable as to be essentially impossible. Every oddity that implies anything about implicating former President Trump has found its way into the news. But just now, the committee goes completely silent? Joe Biden might say something along these lines: Come on, man.
