Shifty Adam Schiff has been trying to keep a tight leash on the whistleblower’s identity as well as the rest of what’s been going on with the impeachment proceedings. He has interfered with peoples’ testimonies when they start to answer too many questions. Republicans have been raising their eyebrows for a while, wondering what Schiff has been doing behind the scenes.
Enough is enough. Now, Republicans don’t want to hear Schiff interfere any longer. They’re taking it one step further, demanding that he testify in front of the House Judiciary Committee for all that he’s been doing and involved in.
Doug Collins (R-GA) wants to know what the Democrats are hiding from the Republicans – and more importantly, what is Schiff telling everyone to hide? Collins has said that the parameters of the impeachment investigation have been skewed against Trump from the very beginning.
Collins has made it clear that it would be a good idea to let Adam Schiff testify in front of the House Judiciary Committee. If he has been telling the truth and conducting a legitimate investigation, he should have nothing to fear. However, if he chooses not to testify, Collins says that it’s important to question “his veracity” in what’s being put into the report.
The report should be released from the Intelligence Committee on Monday regarding the impeachment investigation. If the committee votes to approve the findings, the committee will, then, begin hearings on Wednesday to draft the articles of impeachment. With Collins being the ranking Republican on the Judiciary panel, he has the ability to call for Schiff to testify before drafting the articles.
Collins spoke with “Fox News Sunday” host Chris Wallace on Sunday. During this time, he complained that Jerry Nadler (D-NY), the Judiciary Chairman, gave Republicans who were on the committee unrealistic deadlines to digest what was found in the report from the Intelligence Committee. Nadler is giving everyone until Frida to present a list of witnesses who will testify, which Collins says is too soon based on the expected release of Schiff’s findings report. This is when Collins asked, “Why are they hiding the stuff?” Collins says that if they have the case that they think that they do, share the materials. Instead, Nadler is making demands to have information on the 6th when the information hasn’t even been given over from the Intelligence Committee yet.
The Democratic Caucus Chairman, Hakeem Jeffries, who is also a member of the Judiciary Committee, has said that a timeline hasn’t been set as of yet. However, he did cite that Nancy Pelosi has said that there’s a need to “act expeditiously.” It seems a bit odd that Jeffries doesn’t remember a deadline being set when Collins is claiming to have a “crazy letter” in his hands with a specific date. This helps to support Collins more than anything that the Democrats are looking to hide details, and Jeffries is just one of the many people who are involved in the cover-up.
If Collins can get Adam Schiff in front of the committee to testify, this could be the break that the impeachment case has needed. Republicans and the rest of the country have been wondering exactly what the Democrats think they have in order to bring President Trump up on charges. They have a phone call that they claim featured quid pro quo. However, the whole country has heard the transcript of that call by now and it didn’t include it. Even the Ukrainian president said that he didn’t feel as though there was quid pro quo.
The only thing Schiff really has in order to bring down the president is the whistleblower, someone who has secondhand knowledge of the call. Who is the whistleblower? We’re not allowed to know. And every time we get close to finding out who overheard the call and who they may have talked to, Schiff is standing in the way of them answering the questions. Schiff knows a lot more than he’s leading on, and most of it has likely been fabricated – just as the Russian hoax was fabricated over a year ago.
The Democrats are still upset that Hillary Clinton didn’t win. Rather than focusing on legislation that the country desperately needs in place, they’re willing to lie and cheat to work on an impeachment proceeding.
Collins will need to push, and push quickly, to get Schiff under oath. Although he could lie his way through that, it could be enough to get perjury charges, too. This way, the Republicans can have the last laugh and prove once and for all how shady the Democrats have been acting.
