Schiff says Kap wants to play, adds ‘workout intimidation’ to Trump impeachment charges

Sporting an afro in solidarity with snubbed NFL quarterback Colin Kaepernick, Rep. Adam Schiff has added a new “high crime” to the list of impeachable offenses committed by President Donald Trump.

Schiff, who leads the impeachment hearings as chair of the House Intelligence Committee, said “the president intimidated the NFL into offering the league’s best quarterback an illegitimate workout as a publicity stunt.”

The private workout scheduled for Saturday at the Atlanta Falcons state-of-the-art training facility constituted an abuse of power by the NFL, Schiff said.

“Kaepernick’s decision to hold the workout at a local high school perfectly expressed his desire to save our democracy,” Schiff added, calmly plucking an afro pick from his back pocket and adjusting his do for the cameras. “Truth to power.”
