Lead House Manager Rep. Adam Schiff (D-CA) angered Republican senators at the Trump impeachment trial Friday night by citing a CBS News report claiming an anonymous Trump “confidant” had said any GOP senators who voted against Trump would have their heads on pikes. There were audible grumblings and cries of “not true” heard by reporters in the gallery. Schiff managed to alienate Sen. Lisa Murkowski (R-AK), one of the few Republicans whom Democrats and the media believe are persuadable on impeachment.
“Murkowski is PISSED “He was going fine with moral courage until he got to head on a pike. That’s where he lost me”
