Adam Schiff(less) Pulls Wool Over Bill Maher’s Eyes

How gullible is the lame stream media?  Adam Schiff[less] flat out pulls the wool over Bill Maher’s eyes, and Maher never notices, from Breitbart [1]:

Schiff answered, “Well, it is enormously challenging. And I think of all the difficulties that we face in terms of how we’ve gotten to where we are politically, you have obviously serious issues of campaign finance reform. You’ve got redistricting. But among the most difficult to deal with is the fact that people now simply get their information from different sources. Had Fox News existed and been essentially the state-run TV during the Nixon era, there might not have been an impeachment of Richard Nixon. But there is this whole echo chamber that supports whatever the president says.”

The House has only impeached two Presidents:

The Use of Impeachment

The House has initiated impeachment proceedings more than 60 times but less than a third have led to full impeachments. Just eight—all federal judges—have been convicted and removed from office by the Senate. Outside of the 15 federal judges impeached by the House, two Presidents (Andrew Johnson in 1868 and William Jefferson (Bill) Clinton in 1998), a cabinet secretary (William Belknap in 1876), and a U.S. Senator (William Blount of North Carolina in 1797) have also been impeached.

Neither has named Richard Milhous Nixon, source [2].
