Posted on 10/13/2019 1:03:25 PM PDT by yesthatjallen
Rep. Lee Zeldin (R-N.Y.) slammed Rep. Adam Schiff (D-Calif.) for his handling of the impeachment inquiry, saying the process is filled with "cherry-picked leaks, withholding of key facts and ... lying."
Zeldin told John Castimatidis on his Sunday radio show that the impeachment process "kind of a flying by the seat of your pants type process" for Schiff, who is leading the impeachment process.
"Something that I find outrageous is the cherry-picked leaks, the withholding of key facts and the lying about other claims that's misleading the American public," Zeldin said.
Zeldin said he has sat in on a total of almost 20 hours of testimony between former special envoy Kurt Volker's and former U.S. ambassador to Ukraine Marie Yovanovich's testimonies as a member of the House Foreign Affairs Oversight Investigations Subcommittee. Four more testimonies are scheduled for the upcoming week.

The truth will catch up. The dems can only manage this for a moment.
Adam Schiff says he wants the inquiry done behind closed doors, and by depositions, as this will “preserve” the sanctity of the testimony. After all, if this was done out in the open, each of the witnesses called could then co-ordinate and “adjust” their statements to present an apparently seamless indictment.
Does anybody think this is not already being done behind closed doors? Adam Schiff himself has been leading the witnesses, coaching them and preparing their “complaints” before they are even brought to his committee.
This would not be allowed in a county courtroom. And if this is “just politics” and no longer a judicial proceeding, then call it what it is, get it ALL out there in the open.
The easiest way to get secret proceedings out into the open, and deal with the selective leaking he describes, is to start leaking information about those proceedings that is 100% bullsh!t.
It is reported that Ambassador So-And-So testified that Barack Obama time the Ukrainian government that hed authorize $2 billion in U.S. aid ... but only after they bought 2 million copies of his book and agreed to pay for all the landscaping costs at his new home on Marthas Vineyard.
If the Democrats want to turn the whole process into a farce, then help them make it a bigger one.
The Dems are trying to operate a Stalinist Star Chamber with secret tribunals. This is the hallmark of totalitarians.
Yep, not until after 2020!! The filthy lying POS RATS can get away with this homogeneous explosive hoax because the mediaVOMITS along with FAUX NEWS care nothing about the truth only hating the president!! Faux news will never ever again be seen by conservatives as a fair and balanced news outlet with paul Ryan on staff!! #boycottFAUX news!!
My prediction is that any future president with opposing party in house will be impeached, just for general purposes.
Democrats have nothing for an impeachment. That is why all they are doing is talking about impeachment. In the end, there will be no impeachment because they cannot get to a vote.
We need a Republican on the Intelligence committee to step forward as a whistle blower. And he would have first-hand knowledge.
Lying? It’s only sarcasm...without the humor.
You’d best call Rep. Zeldin’s office with your brainwave. And do it right away.
Well, the dems filthy dirty tricks haven’t taken Trump out yet, so maybe a couple more will do it.
