I would have thought Schiff for brains would have already scheduled impeachment hearings. He is a POS.

Yeah, this is so obviously fake as to be laughable. Somebody overpaid big time.

Or, is this a dupe to get Maduro looking here so he wont see over there?

Who knows?

Tick tock Maduro. Tick tock Iran. Tick tock China.
