(Tea Party PAC) – House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam “Shifty” Schiff, is not playing any more games when it comes to the coup he and other House Democrats — like Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi — have cooked up to undermine the voices of the American people and boot President Trump out of office.
In fact, Schiff is eager to get this show on the road, to see Trump handed a pink slip and his own party given what he thinks will be a free pass to take over the White House next year. So eager, in fact, he’s told Democrats they have 24 hours to sign the impeachment report.
Here’s more from Breitbart:
House Intelligence Committee chairman Rep. Adam Schiff (D-CA) is giving members of his committee just 24 hours to read and sign off on his report recommending articles of impeachment against President Donald Trump.
As Breitbart News reported Friday, House Judiciary Committee chairman Rep. Jerry Nadler has previewed the report, and suggested it will include claims of “collusion” with Russia — as well as Ukraine, Russia’s enemy.
And as reported Saturday, Schiff will provide the full report to committee members on Monday, who must sign off on Tuesday in time for the first hearing in Nadler’s committee on Wednesday, which will discuss the supposed constitutional and legal basis for impeachment.
It is a foregone conclusion that Democrats will sign off on Schiff’s report. Evidence does not seem to be the top priority for Democrats: a majority favored an impeachment inquiry by August 1, eleven days before the so-called “whistleblower” sent a letter to Schiff complaining about Trump’s phone call with Ukrainian president Volodymyr Zelensky.
However, as the Washington Examiner‘s Byron York has noted, Democrats are in such a rush that they are leaving potential facts out of their examination. For example, they could wage a court battle to force former National Security Adviser John Bolton to testify.
Bolton reportedly disapproved of the role played by U.S. Ambassador to the E.U. Gordon Sondland and Trump attorney Rudy Giuliani in relations with Ukraine. He could be a key witness. However, Democrats did not want to wait to hear what he had to say.
As York noted recently in a column titled “Why the rush toward impeachment?”, Democrats “are racing to get the job done by Christmas. They’re not even trying to hear from some key witnesses, like former national security adviser John Bolton, because they don’t want to take the time to go to court over it.”
York notes that Democrats are fearful of letting impeachment drag into the 2020 presidential primary, when it will pull several U.S. Senators off the campaign trail. And they are also worried about the fact that public support for impeachment is stagnant at best, and slipping at worst, after lackluster public hearings last month.
But the rush has been a feature from the very beginning. On the day that House Speaker Nancy Pelosi announced an impeachment inquiry, the president had already announced that he had declassified the transcript (or “readout”) of the phone call with Zelensky, and that it would be published the next day.
Pelosi did not want to wait for the evidence: her decision was driven by political factors.
Likewise, the Intelligence Committee has rushed its proceedings before all of the evidence was available to most members of Congress, or the public. It often published lengthy transcripts of closed-door depositions on the eve of public hearings, and only released the most exculpatory transcript after public hearings were over.
Nadler has given Trump until Friday to respond to a request to participate, either directly or through his counsel, in the Judiciary Committee’s impeachment proceedings.
This isn’t just an assault on President Trump. It’s not just an assault on the office of president. It’s a brutal attack on the Constitution and the power possessed by American citizens who have the God-given right to have a voice in who governs them. The left wants to destroy everything that makes our nation unique among others on the planet. It’s despicable.
We are a nation that is run by the people. Those who are against the founding principles those brave men and women bled and died for over the years are traitors of the worst kind. Traitors ungrateful for the wonderful life and opportunities they’ve been handed, squandering the wonderful resources they’ve been passed down.
Let’s hope Schiff and others fail to impeach the president and that the whole endeavor backfires in a big way.
