Impeachment manager dismisses concerns Schiff alienated key Republican votes: ‘This isn’t about any one person’

Rep. Jason Crow (D-Colo.), one of the House’s impeachment managers, said Sunday he was not concerned by comments from Republican senators that comments by fellow managers Adam Schiff (D-Calif.) and Jerry Nadler (D-N.Y.) had offended them.

Asked by CBS’ Margaret Brennan whether he believed Democrats had “overplayed their hand,” Crow responded “no, I don’t.”

Every person sitting in that chamber has taken an oath to be an impartial juror. We’ve all taken oaths to put the constitution, put the country ahead of our own interests and well being.”

Sen. Susan Collins (R-Maine), considered a key vote on calling witnesses, said she “took… as very offensive” when Nadler said any GOP senator voting against calling witnesses was “part of the cover-up.”

“As one who is listening attentively and working hard to get to a fair process, I was offended,” she said last week.

Both Collins and Sen. Lisa Murkowski (R-Alaska), another key vote on the issue important to Democrats, also audibly objected to Schiff claiming a Trump associate had told Republican senators their heads would be “on a pike” if they went against Trump during the trial.
