House Republicans have been trying to throw sand in the gears of the impeachment inquiry from the start. Nadler, along with Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff before him, has largely succeeded in keeping things on track. But the frequency and fervor with which the GOP lawmakers objected today seemed to trip Nadler up a bit, and they focused relentlessly on the Democrats unusual if not unprecedented structure for the hearing.
Republicans had hoped that Schiff would testify about his committees report, which would give them an opportunity to question the chairman on whether he ever met the anonymous whistle-blower whose August complaint to Congress set off the investigation. (Schiff has denied any such meeting.) There is precedent for both congressional staff and elected members testifying before congressional committees, but Democrats decided to shield Schiff by inviting only committee staff members to appear. Republicans responded by displaying a poster with Schiffs image on a milk carton.
Berke opened with a flourish, presenting the case for impeachment without notes or a prepared text, as if he were delivering a closing statement before a courtroom in a jury. But after giving his testimony from the witness stand, he returned to the committee dais to ask questions of Goldman and himself.
Republicans were astounded.
He can either ask or answer. He cant do both, protested Representative Doug Collins of Georgia, the committees top Republican.
Its just wrong! bellowed Representative Louie Gohmert of Texas.

The DOJ should be going after the perps, their employees, who lied to a court.
If nothing comes of any of this, there is no rule of law and the Constitution really is an illusion.
I’m amazed that there are so many dysfunctional hysterical democrats....none of them stand a chance against TRUMP.
