You know, JFK would be like an Alt-Right neo-Nazi fascist according to them today. And I think there’s such a great tradition of, you know, some of these people in working class America, “Don, if my grandfather knew I was voting for a Republican he’d be rolling over in his grave.” I go, “How many genders would your grandfather think there are? Talk to me about what he would think about today’s Democrat Party platform,” and that’s sort of when the light goes off. - Donald Trump, Jr., The Rush Limbaugh Program, 11/7/19
Fox News.com reports that
House Democratic Caucus Chairman Rep. Hakeem Jeffries blasted Republicans and labeled them as a “#CoverUpCaucus” after they submitted a list of witnesses they would like to call for public testimony as part of the ongoing impeachment inquiry of President Trump.
Jeffries, D-N.Y., also questioned the validity of the witnesses in a brief but fiery tweet Sunday morning directed at his counterparts across the aisle.
“House Republican #CoverUpCaucus wants sham witnesses to testify,” Jeffries said. “My two cents? GET LOST.”
The GOP list includes Hunter Biden and his former business partner Devon Archer, former Democratic National Committee consultant Alexandra Chalupa, and the anonymous whistleblower whose complaint about Trump’s July 25 phone call with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky led to the impeachment inquiry.
In that call, Trump urged Zelensky to launch an investigation into the Biden family’s dealings in Ukraine — specifically, why former Vice President Joe Biden pressured former Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko to fire a prosecutor who was investigating a Ukrainian energy firm where his son Hunter held a lucrative role on the board.
Democrats have claimed the call was part of an attempted quid pro quo in exchange for withheld U.S. military aid and a White House meeting between Zelensky and Trump. Trump has denied the claim, saying the call was “perfect.”
Republicans have called for the whistleblower to come forward to answer questions about their complaint, which came from second-hand knowledge of the phone call.
House Intelligence Committee Chairman Rep. Adam Schiff, D-Calif., who runs the inquiry, was quick to reject the GOP’s request to have the whistleblower come forward to testify, citing whistleblower protection laws and stating that other witnesses’ testimony has already been more substantive than what was stated in the complaint.
“The committee … will not facilitate efforts by President Trump and his allies in Congress to threaten, intimidate and retaliate against the whistleblower who courageously raised the initial alarm,” Schiff said in a letter to Intelligence Committee Ranking Member Devin Nunes, R-Calif. ” … The whistleblower has a right under laws championed by this committee to remain anonymous and to be protected from harm.”
The impeachment inquiry, moreover, has gathered an ever-growing body of evidence — from witnesses and documents, including the president’s own words in his July 25 call record — that not only confirms, but far exceeds the initial information in the whistleblower’s complaint … ” Schiff concluded his letter.
President Trump suggested Saturday that Republicans call former Vice President Joe Biden, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, and Schiff himself as witnesses.
Let’s stop this Soviet-style sham right now.
As the little old lady said in the commercial a while back,
That’s not how it works! That’s not how any of this works!
According to ConstitutionCenter.org,
The second part of the House impeachment process usually resides with the Judiciary Committee, which can empower subcommittees, hold public hearings, subpoena persons and records, and incur expenses as part of the investigation. At the investigation’s end, the committee would decide if the evidence merits moving forward with the drafting of impeachment articles for the full House to consider.
First, Pelosi called for a Formal Impeachment Inquiry vote after they had already started their Inquisition…err…investigation.
Then, they intentionally circumvented established procedure to hold closed door meetings chaired by Shifty Adam Schiff, Chairman of the House Intelligence Committee, who was also a force behind the failed Special Counsel Investigation.
He and his fellow House Democrats participating in this seditious sideshow also came up with arbitrary “rules designed to keep the Republicans from being able to freely participate in the questioning of the Democrats’ prejudicial witnesses.
Plus, Adam Schiff has denied the Republicans’ witness request list.
With Schiff having already coached CIA official Eric Ciaramella, who is being referred to in the MSM as the “anonymous whistleblower”, even though every one knows that he is a part of the Depp State Coup, Schiff’s credibility is nonexistent, having left Washington a long time ago.
Sen. Lindsey Graham said this weekend on Fox News’ “Sunday Morning Futures” that
“I consider any impeachment in the House that doesn’t allow us to know who the whistleblower is to be invalid because without the whistleblower complaint we wouldn’t be talking about any of this.”
In other words, all the House Dems are doing is attempting to damage President Trump with another lame strategy after their first one, the “Russian Collusion Delusion” failed miserably.
Then, when this is voted down in the Senate, if Pelosi and company ever let their “Impeachment Inquiry” get out of a never-ending Soviet-style Tribunal in the House Intelligence Committee with Commissar Schiff, the Democrats will try something else to sabotage both President Trump and all of us between the coasts who voted him into office.
That is why, when we reelect President Trump in the 2020 Presidential Election, we need to elect a Republican Majority back into the House of Representatives.
That way, Congress can actually do some work on behalf of the American people.
Because right now, the Democrats are just wasting our time…and MONEY.
Until He Comes,
