House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff, D-Calif., who is overseeing the ongoing illegitimate impeachment inquiry set in motion by Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., is reportedly telling witnesses testifying not to answer questions asked by Republican lawmakers.
Speaking to reporters on Capitol Hill, House Minority Whip Steve Scalise, R-La., slammed the hidden process claiming Schiff was instructing witnesses testifying behind the closed doors of the SCIF not to answer questions asked by Republican members.
Hes directing witnesses not to answer questions that he doesnt want the witness to answer if theyre asked by Republicans, Scalise charged. Hes not cut off one Democrat. Hes not interrupted one Democrat and told a witness not to answer Democrat members questions but today he started telling witnesses not to answer questions by certain Republicans.
One question that Schiff barred a witness from answering reportedly came from Ohio Republican Congressman Jim Jordan who attempted to asked the initial anonymous whistleblower who they spoke with following the infamous July phone call between Trump and Ukrainian president.
Adam Schiff says, no-no-no were not going to let him answer that question, Jordan said as reported by Fox News.
The latest charges against Schiff come as the ongoing impeachment process has been rot with allegations of bias where Schiff has been conducting a closed-door investigation interviewing witnesses whose testimony has been selectively leaked to the press to frame the president.
The secrecy of the House proceedings followed by an array of leaked testimony to promote a false narrative being peddled by the corporate media prompted about 30 House Republicans led by Rep. Matt Gaetz, D-Fla., to storm the SCIF to demand previously denied records relating to the investigation.
Schiff is blocking GOP lawmakers from asking critical questions in the proceedings two days before Pelosi has set a tentative full-chamber vote to formalize the impeachment inquiry.
The text of the resolution was released Tuesday afternoon and denies Republicans subpoena powers. In both the Nixon and Clinton proceedings, the minority party was given this right.
This would not be happening if Schitt was in prison. You snooze you lose!
Isn’t that illegal?
If they continue to proceed in this manner, and if they attempt to include any of this secret testimony in any official record, then they are over throwers of our lawful government.
Schiff: the witness is pleading the 5th on the grounds that his answer may tend to incriminate me.
You just have to ask the right questions.
Is it true that Adam Schiff enjoys blowing goats?
Nice. I was going to post the phrase but you have the picture!
Shiftty is looking to start something a bit larger than an inquiry.
I wonder if Schiff had to wear those oversize cowboy boots when he visited ‘Uncle Buck’ ?
If true, Schitt should be frog-marched to the gibbet. That pencil-necked reprobate treats the Constitution as toilet paper. All I have to say to him is: Paris, 1793.
We need to drop some citizen arrests on these servants.
....huh? They can't even get that right?????
Calling all Patriots . . .
Let’s have a long look at the Standard Hotel or giggles and jiggles at Ed Buck’s place.
process has been rot with..
Probably, but since nobody does anything about his conduct it doesn't really matter.
The Republicans need to stop playing a rigged game, disrupt the process, make the hearing or deposition impossible to continue. If security is called, have numbers there to really make the police think about the consequences of roughing up Congressmen, etc. Don’t allow the House to operate> If this process continues, we are going to end up with a lot more than just disruption of Schiff’s plots and committee operations.
This is a nice piece but it’s in the Federalist. The Democrat news media is blocking all this information from the public or outright lying about it.
