House Minority Whip Steve Scalise, Rep. Jim Jordan shredded Adam Schiff over alleged obstruction of witnesses.
The Democrats’ impeachment resolution continues their Soviet-style scheme they’ve been running for weeks and authorizes the production of a one-sided “report” authored by Adam Schiff to attack President Trump. Still no actual due process for the President.
“This stinks to high heaven. This shouldn’t be allowed, not in the United States of America.”
“They’re trying to impeach a president behind closed doors without due process.”
Republican congressmen ripped into House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff Tuesday following a White House national security officer’s testimony regarding the impeachment inquiry into President Donald Trump.
House Minority Whip Steve Scalise told reporters Tuesday that the impeachment inquiry is a “one-sided, Soviet-style process.” The Louisiana Republican, joined by Ohio Rep. Jim Jordan, added that this was the only impeachment inquiry “in the history of our country” that was taking place behind closed doors and under such strict rules.
The two lawmakers attacked Schiff after Lt. Col. Alexander Vindman’s testimony Tuesday, where he was expected to talk about how he objected to and reported concerns about Trump’s phone call with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky. They accused Democrats of blocking witnesses from answering questions.
“This is an impeachment inquiry. And, in fact, Speaker [Nancy] Pelosi’s resolution confirms that it’s an impeachment inquiry, yet every other impeachment inquiry we’ve had have in the history of our country – all three – have allowed both sides to call witnesses,” Scalise told reporters. “Have allowed the White House to participate. That’s not happening right now.” More
Keep the pressure on Steve Scalise and Jim Jordan because this is so unconstitutional. They’re trying to keep this a big secret until they can drop it all at once. That way the Republicans will have to scramble to piece together what they’ve presented, by then the damage is already done whether or not it’s fact. Very calculating!
