House Democrats unveil their impeachment resolution.
House Speaker Nancy Pelosi lied to the American people saying the process being voted on today (should be known as the Schiff Empowerment Act) gives Republicans and the White House the equal power as the Democrats and their leader Adam Schiff in this sham impeachment process.
Top House Democrats ceding power to Intelligence Committee in impeachment inquiry express support for a resolution that might as well be known as The Adam Schiff Empowerment Act.
Dem impeachment resolution has long title about inquiring into grounds for impeachment. Shorter, more accurate title would be: The Adam Schiff Empowerment Act. https://t.co/VGiUY0iQQA

The resolution gives Rep. Schiff, chairman of the House Intelligence Committee, far-reaching power over the Trump impeachment. Speaker Nancy Pelosi remains the ultimate authority, of course, but, like a chairman of the board choosing a chief executive officer, she has picked Schiff to run the show. And in the resolution, Democrats will give him near-total control…
…The resolution also gives Schiff total control over whether transcripts of depositions already completed and those yet to be done will be made public. “The chair is authorized to make publicly available in electronic form the transcripts of depositions conducted by the [Intelligence Committee] in furtherance of the investigation,” says the resolution. That means Schiff can release transcripts, but it does not mean he must release transcripts.
“It says they are authorized to disclose depositions,” Meadows noted, “which means they can pick and choose which depositions they will release.” Perhaps Schiff will release them all. But he doesn’t have to.
The resolution would also give Schiff the authority to call and conduct public hearings on impeachment. Schiff will control the witnesses. Although there has been some discussion about whether Republicans will have the right to call witnesses, the resolution only gives the ranking Republican on the Intelligence Community, Rep. Devin Nunes, the right to ask Schiff to call a witness. More
They are going to vote to continue the witch hunt on Halloween. How appropriate.

Nancy Pelosi has gone off the deep end. The resolution is nothing but a piece of garbage giving Adam Schiff and the rest of the Democrats more power than they have currently. They will share information between all their different committees looking for evidence to impeach while trying to exclude the Republicans.

@HouseDemocrats Do you hacks read these things or does Nancy send you instructions every morning? You insult the American people. YOU WORK FOR US NOT FOR ADAM SCHIFF. Why does he control what citizens can hear? Serve the people. pic.twitter.com/m3rZDFMA7d
