House Democrats on the Judiciary Committee rejected the request from Republican members to have Representative Adam Schiff testify, further affirming what everyone else is thinking: this whole thing is a sham.
As Shifty Schiff keeps moving the goalposts from “collusion” to “bribery” to “abuse of power”, most Americans have little to no idea why we are going through this whole ordeal, and wasting taxpayer money along the way.
Here’s what Michael Goodwin over at The New York Post had to say about Schiff’s less than thrilling impeachment report:
Say this for Rep. Adam Schiff: His imagination is vivid and he has a flair for the dramatic. If only he had more respect for facts and a tighter tether to reality. The California attack dog is, in real life, a frustrated writer of rejected screenplays, and he’s produced another dud in the Democrats’ impeachment report. Released Tuesday, it offers nothing new of significance, but that didn’t stop Schiff from hyping the contents as something akin to the second coming of Richard Nixon. While the vast majority of Americans found something else to do than watch the mind-numbing hours of public testimony, Schiff depicts the hearings he orchestrated as pivotal events in modern history. While Trump is in Europe dealing with crucial national security issues and is a growing favorite to win re-election, Schiff insists he’s doing “potentially irrevocable” damage to the system of checks and balances and is a threat to the Constitution.
Look, we all know you didn’t watch the entirety of the hearings, and who could blame you? Most people have better things to do, like work, or watch paint dry. To sum them up, they were boring, and were mere recitations of articles from the New York Times, The Washington Post, and the like. However, if you only watch the evening news, and short clips online, you’d think there was some sort of “gotcha” moment… There wasn’t…
On Wednesday Republican Rep. Doug Collins called for Adam Schiff to testify before the committee, motioning to “require the attendance of chairman Schiff before this committee and translate this letter accordingly.”
Over the weekend, Collins said that Schiff would be his “first and foremost witness,” saying that the Chairman has assumed the role of a special counsel, and should be treated as such.
“He’s compared himself in the past to a special counsel,” Collins said of Schiff on Sunday. “Well, if we go back to Clinton, and even back to Nixon, but in Clinton, Ken Starr was the special counsel. He presented a report that we’re going to get as Judiciary. He came and sat and testified under oath and took questions from all sides including the White House.”
“Adam Schiff has been the author of many things, a lot of them found to be false over the past couple years, but he’s going to be the author of this report.”
