Adam Shiff, Chairman of the Intelligence Committee, was called on by Republicans to resign since he supported the Mueller investigation into the possibility that Trump had colluded with Russia during his campaign and has tried to obstruct justice. Shiff had a very eloquent response.
What about the First Amendment?
Do you believe in the First Amendment of the Constitution? Freedom of Speech? Apparently our President does not. Now that he thinks he has been exonerated from the charges of collusion and obstruction of justice, he is screaming at the top of his lungs that his detractors be burned at the stake for daring to question his behavior or criticize him. In the U.S., we have this little thing called the Constitution. The First Amendment of the Constitution guarantees we as citizens the protection of Freedom of Speech. No, it is not treasonous to criticize and question the President, unlike what Donald Trump would like for us to believe. He can’t send death squads after all the Democrats. Well, I guess he could but then we’d have to suspend the Constitution and call ourselves Venezuela.
