Republicans blasted Rep. Adam Schiff Friday after he mentioned a CBS News report that claimed an unnamed “confidante” of President Trump had warned senators that a vote in favor of impeachment would mean “your head will be on a pike.”
Schiff made the comment in his closing remarks in Trump’s impeachment trial on the Senate floor Friday.
“CBS News reported last night that a Trump confidant said that GOP senators were warned, vote against the president and your head will be on a pike,” Schiff said.
Notable among them were swing-vote Republicans Susan Collins of Maine — who was overheard in the chamber responding, “That’s not true!” — and Lisa Murkowski of Alaska, who later told reporters, “That’s where [Schiff] lost me.”
“That is completely totally false, and all of us were shaking our heads, like where did that story come from, and Adam Schiff just kept saying it,” GOP Sen. James Lankford said after the testimony.
