House Intelligence Committee chairman Rep. Adam Schiff claimed the Republican Party is “just cult of personality around Donald Trump.”

Democrat Schiff said MSNBC’s “Weekends” America only has “one functional party,” referring to his party.

Schiff was reacting to a video of House Minority Whip Steve Scalise (R-LA) being asked if he acknowledged President Joe Biden as the “legitimate president of the United States.”

Schiff said:

“This is the number two Republican in the House, and he has difficulty saying that Joe Biden was elected in a free and fair election because he doesn’t want to antagonize Donald Trump and his base.”

‘They have tied their wagon to this amoral now former president,’ Schiff said

“Notwithstanding the fact that Donald Trump incited a violent attack on our Capitol, these republican leaders are still in his thrall.”

He continued:

“Steve Scalise made the same pilgrimage Kevin McCarthy did to Mar-a-Lago to kiss the ring, to once again pledge fealty to Donald Trump.”

“They have tied their wagon to this amoral now former president.”

“It’s a terrible thing for the Republican Party, but it’s also a tragedy for the country,” Schiff said.

“We need two functional parties.”

“Right now, we only have one functional party and a cult of personality around Donald Trump.”

According to a recent poll, most Republican voters say they want Trump to ‘play a big role’ in the GOP moving forward

Last week, Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC) said GOP “doesn’t Have Snowball’s Chance in Hell of Taking Majority Without Trump.”

“If you don’t get that, you’re just not looking.”

“He was a hell of a president on all of the things that conservatives really believe in.”

According to a recent poll, most Republican voters say they want Trump to “play a big role” in the GOP moving forward.

Three out of four Republicans want to see Trump become a more dominant figure within the party.

The new Quinnipiac University national poll was conducted Thursday through Sunday, during and after Trump’s acquittal in his Senate impeachment trial.

87% of Republicans said that Trump should be allowed to hold elected office again, according to the poll.

That stands in contrast to the 55% of all respondents in the survey who said Trump should be barred from holding elective office in the future.
