The globos are baring their teeth. They are trying to intimidate President Trump with a series of very public threats concerning future indictment and prosecution, but in doing so, they are also making it very clear to him that if he is ever going to Drain the Swamp, he had damn well better unleash The Storm while he still can.
Rep. Adam Schiff (D-Calif.) on Sunday said that President Trump might “face the real prospect of jail time” after prosecutors indicated last week that he directed illegal payments during his 2016 presidential campaign.
“There’s a very real prospect that on the day Donald Trump leaves office, the Justice Department may indict him. That he may be the first president in quite some time to face the real prospect of jail time,” he said on CBS’s “Face the Nation.”

Schiff’s comments come after federal prosecutors said in a legal filing Friday that referred to Trump as Individual-1 that Trump coordinated with and directed his former personal attorney, Michael Cohen, during the 2016 campaign to make illegal payments to two women claiming they had affairs with Trump. It was the first time prosecutors made those accusations against Trump.
This is not just some petty Congressman shooting off his mouth. This is a major Deep Swamp creature who is expected to become the next chairman of the House Intelligence Committee
