Much comment on this article. Legal analogies--grand jury, cross examination--are useless. House can do what it wants. Point is, Volker testimony seems to show Dems dead set on proving a story and resistant to evidence that doesn't support the story. http://ow.ly/tw2850wNxlO
Today’s witness interview failed to advance the Democrats’ impeachment effort—the witness had no relevant info and didn’t even work on Ukraine related issues.
The aimless charade and collassal waste of time continues.
Meanwhile, issues people care about are being ignored.
Remember how Washington Democrats constantly weaponized secrecy with the Mueller/collusion fiasco? No one was allowed to question anything, because “we don’t know what Mueller has”
Same thing on this Ukraine ordeal
This is being kept secret to protect a narrative from scrutiny
It continues to be ridiculous that the House is attempting an impeachment investigation of @realDonaldTrump in the basement of the Capitol, hidden from the public.
If you’re going to run a political hit job, at least do it in the open. Let Americans see it all. Let them decide.
Chairman Schiff decries possible “witness coordination”—even as barely 2 weeks ago, he was caught misleading the public about his office’s back-channel communications with the “whistleblower.”
This secret, unauthorized impeachment process is a sham. https://twitter.com/mkraju/status/1183433989434073094 …
With respect to my colleague, “prove your innocence” is not justice in America.
And yet—this is exactly how Washington Democrats constantly approach this President and impeachment: guilty until proven innocent.
They may accept that standard. But the American people will not. https://twitter.com/markbednar/status/1182706084986920969 …
The Democrats may think they had a good day because they leaked selective text messages, but "behind those closed doors, there was a very different story. And if that comes out, I will use it in defense of the president [@realDonaldTrump ]." -@RepMarkMeadows
Instead of releasing the Volker transcript, House Dems are leaking cherry picked info & keeping the public in the dark on the rest. Why hasn't @RepAdamSchiff released the full transcript & why aren't so many in the media demanding it? Because it's FULL of inconvenient facts!
"This is not a fair process."
@RepMarkMeadows says he has spent more time with Ambassador Volker than @AdamSchiff has
"When you have a press release cherry picking text messages ... I'm all for having this ambassador in, but let's only do so once we have a fair process."
Inbox: @RepMarkMeadows says he wants to hear from Amb Sondland, but "under a fair process." Goes onto say that Schiff and Dems "have no such process in mind" and accuses them of "an abuse of investigative authority."
