House Intel Chairman Adam Schiff has been caught pulling a new dirty trick in his impeachment inquiry hoping no one will notice. Not only have people noticed, but they are also making sure all Americans find out before it’s too late. You don’t want to miss this.
Speaker Nancy Pelosi initially was going to carry out President Donald Trump’s impeachment with some semblance of order. Pelosi was never going to hold a vote to start the impeachment hearings, which is needed to do it legally. However, she did begin them in the correct House committee: the Judiciary.
Many may remember when Corey Lewandowski was questioned before Jerry Nadler’s Judiciary Committee on September 17. That was the beginning of this impeachment inquiry. Pelosi tried to start the process in the right committee, but then it went all wrong.
As Rep. Matt Gaetz highlighted yesterday when he was thrown out of Schiff’s impeachment inquiry, this whole process began in his committee.
“In the absence of any rules the House Democrats have adopted, I found it only reasonable to look at prior precedent on impeachment,” Gaetz said, noting that the Judiciary Committee has taken the lead on the country’s most recent impeachment proceedings. “It’s not like I’m on the Agriculture Committee. I’m on a committee that has jurisdiction over impeachment, and I’m not able to participate.”
When Lewandowski crushed Nadler’s initial hearing, Pelosi had to regroup and think of another way to do impeachment. She decided to hell with the rules and handed it over to the master of dirty deeds: Adam Schiff.
Schiff has changed the proceedings from “interviews” to “depositions” to block Republicans from the proceedings.
“HPSCI Chairman Adam Schiff has changed the proceedings from “interviews” to “depositions” in an effort to block Republicans from discussing witness testimony,” Conservative Treehouse reports. “While the minority is blocked from discussing the Democrats are leaking to the New York Times and DC media. This is part of the political strategy to frame the impeachment narrative.”
President Trump also reacted to Schiff’s latest dirty trick. “Democrats are allowing no transparency at the Witch Hunt hearings. If Republicans ever did this they would be excoriated by the Fake News. Let the facts come out from the charade of people, most of whom I do not know, they are interviewing for 9 hours each, not selective leaks,” Trump tweeted.

During an interview on Capitol Hill today, Representatives Mark Meadows, Lee Zeldin, and Jim Jordan outline how the Democrats now want to drop any discussion or use of the whistleblower. Jordan righteously outlines to an antagonistic media how the “whistleblower” has a right to protection, but no right to anonymity.
Meanwhile, we have new information on one of the Democrats star witnesses who testified this week in front of Schiff, former U.S. Ambassador to Ukraine, Marie Yovanovitch.
Yovanovitch, initiated a request for State Dept. officials to conduct surveillance on: Jack Posobiec, Donald Trump Jr., Laura Ingraham, Sean Hannity, Michael McFaul (Obama’s ambassador to Russia), Dan Bongino, Ryan Saavedra, Rudy Giuliani, Sebastian Gorka, John Solomon, Lou Dobbs, Pamella Geller, and Sara Carter.
It reads like a who’s who of big named Trump supporters, right?
Is it any wonder Schiff is holding his secret meetings and calling on witnesses who are all tainted and corrupt? Rep. Doug Collins explained the process and why Speaker Pelosi and Adam Schiff are using these tactics.
Collins explained Schiff is holding hearings behind closed doors so they can selectively leak out information that supports the Democrat narrative of impeachment, while also hiding the evidence that refutes their dirty impeachment process.
“Speaker Pelosi, with forethought and planning by the Lawfare group, is intentionally using non-jurisdictional committees because she is manipulating the process. It’s the same reason why the House Intelligence, House Foreign Affairs and House Oversight committees cannot legally send out ‘Impeachment-based Subpoenas’; they have no impeachment jurisdiction,” CTH adds.
Schiff doesn’t need subpoena power to bring these Trump-haters like Yovanovitch before his fraudulent impeachment inquiry, they do so with pleasure.
“It was separately established by SCOTUS during the Nixon impeachment investigation that *IF* the full House votes to have the Judiciary Committee commence an impeachment investigation, then Judiciary (only) has subpoena power that can overcome executive privilege claims,” CTH concludes.
This is why Speaker Pelosi first attempted to start the process in the correct committee: Judiciary. However, it became extremely evident during the questioning of Lewandowski that no open impeachment proceeding where Americans can watch would ever work.
The main problem is President Trump isn’t guilty of any crime.
So, now we have Shifty Schiff holding secret meetings in the basement of Capitol Hill. He is blocking Republicans from being able to discuss the jaded testimony of their Trump-hating witnesses while Schiff leaks exactly what he wants to the New York Times. Pretty slick, right?
Well, Americans loathe bad guys who conduct dirty deeds in secret, and we also loathe dirty politicians railroading the duly-elected president of the United States in proceedings no one can see. And the so-called charges Schiff comes up with from his dirty secret meetings won’t be worth the paper they are written on. This is still America, not Soviet Russia.
