Chairman Nadler has no choice but to postpone Mondays hearing in the wake of a last-minute document transmission that shows just how far Democrats have gone to pervert basic fairness. . . . Democrats waited until after Speaker Pelosi announced that articles of impeachment were imminent and chose the eve of the Judiciary Committees impeachment hearing to share loads of documents that Chairman Schiff has had since this investigation began.
WASHINGTON Rep. Doug Collins (R-Ga.), Ranking Member of the House Judiciary Committee, has demanded Rep. Jerry Nadler (D-N.Y.), Chairman of the House Judiciary Committee, delay Mondays hearing after Democrats on the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence, Foreign Affairs Committee and Budget Committee transmitted thousands of pages of documents to House Judiciary Republicans less than 48 hours before Judiciarys hearing scheduled to examine impeachment presentations from Intelligence and Judiciary Committees.
The document release comes 25 days after Republican members of the House Judiciary Committee wrote to Chairman Nadler requesting all documents related to the impeachment investigation according to House Rule XI, 2(e)2(a). Republicans received no response from the chairman.
Chairman Nadler has no choice but to postpone Mondays hearing in the wake of a last-minute document transmission that shows just how far Democrats have gone to pervert basic fairness. Nearly a month after every Republican on our committee asserted our clear right to see all underlying documents held by the committees involved in the impeachment investigation, we have received no response from the chairman. Instead, Democrats waited until after Speaker Pelosi announced that articles of impeachment were imminent and chose the eve of the Judiciary Committees impeachment hearing to share loads of documents that Chairman Schiff has had since this investigation began. It is impossible for Judiciary members to sift through thousands and thousands of pages in any meaningful way in a matter of hours, said Collins.
Moreover, Democrats still refuse to release all documentation in their possession, though Republicans have demanded this according to rules of the House which Democrats themselves adopted in January. The information Democrats released today is partial, biased and curated to support accusations that have, to date, been thinner than cotton candy.
Americans still dont have access to any information that Adam Schiff hasnt chosen to weave into his trail of lies. On behalf of millions of American voters who deserve the truth, Chairman Nadler must postpone this hearing while the Judiciary Committee examines these documents. At the same time, Chairman Schiff must release to House members the complete body of underlying evidence that he has concealed.
The unfairness and dishonesty of this impeachment sham continue to be unprecedented. In violating the rules that this House adopted democratically, Democrats have violated their oaths of office. Under Speaker Pelosis leadership, House Democrats have eroded the integrity of our chamber and sacrificed the confidence of Americans who trust Congress to balance power, not abuse it.
If they don't expose the ComDem Coup Plotters now, the price is far too high.
Some GOP will be hurt in the process if total exposure comes. Daylight disinfectant is the first step to a cure for the current ComDem Insanity!.
Old court room trick dump a pile of docs to create an illusion of credibility.
They could be a pile of grocery lists, it doesn’t matter it’s for effect.
Sorry, ‘DEMAND’ should have been in all caps since that carries more weight.
From my observations: The impeachment evidence (so far) consists only of various speculations as to the motivations of Trumps phone call the evidence possibilities only limited by the imaginations of the witnesses. What actually transpired in the call has long been discarded as not useful to the prosecution... errr... persecution.
After Impeachment: The next question: are there enough GOP senators on Jeffery Epstein’s client list to convict?
This is a good sign.
The Dems are doing a document dump to distract the media from the IG report that’s coming out this afternoon. Which means the report may be strong milquetoast instead of weak milquetoast.
The impeachment was always about the IG report and the Durham investigation. This just makes it obvious.
If the Rs had any backbone they would walk out or just no-show. Let the Dems fake a quorum as well as everything else.
You are playing in a basketball game.
Your team is ahead by 30 points.
The coach for the opposing team grabs the ball and walks to the middle of the court where he says that hes stopping the game until he can find out why his team is losing so bad, but he thinks it must be because your team is cheating.
Besides, hes been stealing from the popcorn stand and the ticket booth and by golly, he just might be in trouble if anyone takes a hard look at him.
Thats the Democrats.
Just walk out of them en masse.
The GOP members should be objecting to each piece of “evidence”. Force them to read it and force them to defend it’s inclusion.
I wish some female Republican on the committee would just walk up to Nonads with a whipped cream pie and smash him in the face with it.
Yeah, I wish that!
Or simply the listeners don’t agree with what was said because, well because it just didn’t sound appropriate. Or something.
Nope , have to get it done now so they can go hide
Not like it matters. IG report won't amount to a hill of beans.
“Yeah, I wish that!”
Maybe if the Repubs bring out a few buckets of KFC that I’ll help. Don’t know if the Rat chicken man is there from a previous hearing.
That’s what I thought. But the timing of this particular desperation move makes me think it will amount to at least a medium sized hill of beans.
Anyway we will know shortly.
Where will they hide?
My desire is a bit more practical, but best not reveal it.
I ask you and anyone else where are prominent Republicans over this...
George W Bush
Older retired mouthpieces
Quiet as EFF
kinda shows you how we were duped back then doesnt it?
Yes. They must be exposed.
