Representative Adam Schiff (D-CA) said Wednesday on MSNBC’s “Deadline” that history would rebuke former President Donald Trump and “everyone who stood with him.”
Schiff said, “I do think, though, as time goes by and it will become increasingly more clear as we gain perspective on the last four years Americans will realize what a disastrous presidency Donald Trump’s was.How many people needlessly lost their lives during the pandemic because of his narcism and incompetence. Also, how his daily dose of bile and poison in the American body politic turned American against American, and they will not want to go back to that. I think it is going to become increasingly clear over time. But we cannot use that as reason to become complacent or take anything for granted. We are not through this yet. I think what we do now will determine how quickly we can get through it.”
He continued, “I think it is only a matter of time before the fact that the emperor has no clothes is exposed and Trump and Trumpism comes crashing in on itself. These kind of fanatical movements like Donald Trump’s always ends up cratering in on themselves.”
Schiff added, “Time is not going to be kind to Donald Trump. It’s not going to be kind to any of the enablers and sycophants in the Congress who upheld him during this period. One of the things that I really can’t understand about my colleague is how do they believe they are going to explain this to their children and grandchildren one day when they are asked, what did you do when that awful man was running the country? Please tell me you did something to stand up to him. Tell me you didn’t go along with him. I don’t know how they are going to answer. But I have the same faith that I heard Mitt Romney express when he gave his verdict in that trial and said that he was a deeply religious man and he had children and grandchildren to answer to. I feel that keenly, I am very confident history will rebuke Donald Trump and everyone who stood with him. But we are not there yet. We are not there yet. We are going to have to work to make sure that we are moving the country forward, and we never go back to that kind of a presidency.”

The top 75 — plus 1 — players in NBA history are revealed
The league needed 76 instead.
The top 75 players in NBA history — and one more because of a tie in the voting — have been revealed, a group that has combined to win 158 NBA championships, earn 730 NBA All-Star selections and score more than 1.5 million points.
The players were not ranked in order, and were announced over a three-day span randomly. And the league didn’t say which players wound up in that tie to determine the final spot.
All 50 of the Top 50 players — chosen 25 years ago, during the NBA’s 50th anniversary celebration — made the Top 75 list as well, a clear indicator that the voters for this team respected the intentions of the selectors a quarter-century ago.
Of the new names on the list, nine were announced during the first two rounds of unveilings Tuesday and Wednesday: Giannis Antetokounmpo, Tim Duncan, Kevin Durant, Kevin Garnett, James Harden, Allen Iverson, Steve Nash, Dirk Nowitzki and Chris Paul.
The other newcomers were all announced Thursday, with a few obvious picks coming along with a few surprises. Dominique Wilkins was a notable omission from the 50th anniversary team but made the 75th anniversary team.
“It took me a while to get over it,” Wilkins said of the snub a quarter-century ago.
He doesn’t have to worry about it anymore.
Nor does Bob McAdoo, another player who didn’t make the Top 50 list 25 years ago but got enough votes to make the Top 75.
“A legend on and off the court,” read a statement from the Miami Heat, commemorating McAdoo’s selection.
The other newcomers to the list, all announced Thursday: Dennis Rodman, Ray Allen, Dwyane Wade, Jason Kidd, Kobe Bryant, Gary Payton, Paul Pierce, Stephen Curry, Reggie Miller, Kawhi Leonard, Damian Lillard, LeBron James, Carmelo Anthony, Anthony Davis and Russell Westbrook.
“I just got chills. I don’t want to be cool and act like this doesn’t mean anything. … It’s surreal,” Wade said on the Turner Sports telecast of Thursday’s announcement. “It doesn’t even feel real to look at yourself and say ‘I’m one of the best 75 players ever to play this game.’”
Kidd had a similar reaction, after being told in a pregame interview before the team he now coaches — the Dallas Mavericks — opened their season against the Atlanta Hawks.
“One, I’m surprised,” Kidd said. “Two, it’s a surreal moment, right? Seventy-five years, to be mentioned with that list, there’s a lot of great names. I’m just happy they found a way to put my name on that list.”
