    Former House Speaker Newt Gingrich advised President Trump on Wednesday to “cut off” ties with the House Intelligence Committee since the chairman, Rep. Adam Schiff, is a “proven liar” about Russian collusion. “We now have documented evidence that, for three years, this guy deliberately and maliciously lied. Why would you cooperate with an Intelligence Committee chairman who is a clear proven liar?” Gingrich told “America’s Newsroom.” “I think the president should just cut him off and say, ‘If you want to give me an Intelligence Committee that I can trust, I’ll work with them, but, this guy is impossible.” He...

    The top Democrat on the House Judiciary Committee demanded answers from Attorney General William Barr over the Justice Department’s decision to drop criminal charges against President Trump's former national security adviser Michael Flynn. Rep. Jerry Nadler (D-N.Y.) said the “outrageous” move called for an “immediate explanation.” He added the House Judiciary Committee, which he chairs, would summon Barr to the Capitol as soon as possible, after a March hearing with the attorney general was postponed due to the pandemic. “Rest assured, we are going to reschedule that hearing, ASAP, and demand answers!” Nadler said on Twitter. The Department of Justice...
  • Dems Who Impeached Trump as Coronavirus Spread Now Want to Investigate His Coronavirus Response

    Rep. Adam Schiff (D-Calif.), perhaps the central figure in Democrats' impeachment of President Donald Trump, began circulating draft legislation to investigate Trump's response to the coronavirus. In his press release on Friday, Schiff claimed the investigation is "not an exercise in casting blame or scoring political points," but Republicans are naturally skeptical. On Thursday, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) announced a new coronavirus oversight committee, headed by House Majority Whip Jim Clyburn (D-S.C.), who last month said the pandemic gives Democrats "a tremendous opportunity to restructure things to fit our vision." After all, Democrats stalled the $2 trillion stimulus bill...

    The top election security official for the intelligence community, Shelby Pierson, reportedly misled members of the House Intelligence Committee during a briefing on Russia's efforts to interfere in the 2020 election, with the goal of helping President Donald Trump, according to three national security officials familiar with the matter as well as National Security Adviser Robert O'Brien. Pierson reportedly told lawmakers that Russia was interfering in the 2020 election with the aim of helping President Trump win re-election, despite no evidence suggesting that was Russia's intention. Concerns over the lack of evidence backing Pierson's claim were raised in response to...

    House Intelligence Committee Republicans are investigating the intelligence community inspector general for his handling of the Ukraine whistleblower complaint, including potential inconsistencies in his testimony before the panel as part of the Trump impeachment inquiry, Fox News has learned. Committee Ranking Member Devin Nunes, R-Calif., first told investigative reporter Sara Carter earlier this week that the panel has an “active investigation” into Intelligence Community Inspector General Michael Atkinson. A source familiar with the committee’s investigation on Tuesday went into further detail, telling Fox News that Republicans are looking at the ICIG’s handling of the whistleblower complaint that sparked the impeachment...
  • Newt Gingrich: Trump impeachment vote – America, it's the anti-Trump universe vs. the pro-Trump universe

    Watching recent developments in the House Democratic Party, it is clear that the effort to impeach President Trump has nothing to do with facts or a normal process of investigation and evidence-based prosecution. We are living through a process defined by a pro-Trump universe and an anti-Trump universe. The great economy, record-low unemployment, the conservative judges, the achievements in renewing the Space program, and a host of other positive things are occurring in the pro-Trump universe. However, the willful avoidance of facts and evidence by left-wing media and left-wing Democrats is a sign that there is an alternative anti-Trump universe....

    House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff (D-CA) appeared on CBS' "Face the Nation" on Sunday to discuss impeachment. Throughout the course of the interview, Schiff argued that the House's articles of impeachment should reflect the most serious crimes. "We have weighed in, all the chairs, Chairman Nadler and his staff, into what we would think would be appropriate in these articles. I can't go into those particular discussions but I can tell you, as a former prosecutor, it's always been my strategy in a charging decision – and an impeachment in the House is essentially a charging decision – to...

    “This guy is sick,” he said on Tuesday. “If he didn’t do that in the halls of Congress, he’d be thrown in jail.” The remarks come a day before the first formal impeachment hearing in the House Judiciary Committee and as House Intelligence Committee Democrats are poised to vote on and release an impeachment report to send to the Judiciary panel. Democrats have alleged that the phone call between Trump and Zelensky was part of Trump’s effort to get a political investigation into former Vice President Joe Biden in exchange for military aid. Trump has denied that claim. Earlier Tuesday,...

    House Republicans delivered a point-by-point rebuttal Monday to Democrats’ impeachment efforts, claiming in their own report that the evidence collected in the inquiry to date does not support the accusations leveled against President Trump -- or rise to the level of removal from office. “The evidence presented does not prove any of these Democrat allegations, and none of the Democrats’ witnesses testified to having evidence of bribery, extortion, or any high crime or misdemeanor,” Republicans said in a 123-page report, timed to be made public ahead of the majority Democrats’ impeachment report. The dueling narratives are emerging following two weeks...

    House Intelligence, Oversight and Foreign Affairs Committees released White House Office of Management and Budget (OMB) official Mark Sandy's deposition transcript on Tuesday. The transcripts reveal aid to Ukraine was put on hold because President Donald Trump was concerned about other countries' failure to provide aid. Q: Okay. When did you go on leave? A: I was out of the office starting on Monday, July 8th. Q: So you did not hear anything about Ukraine security assistance possibly being on hold at any time during the month of June or during that first week of JuIy? A: No. Q: Did...

    Despite claiming to have an "ironclad" case for impeachment against President Trump, House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff, D-Calif., refused to say if the commander in chief will be impeached, when asked point-blank during a Sunday television interview. "This president has now twice sought foreign interference in our election... when [Trump] invited the Russians to hack Hillary’s emails and later that day they attempted to do exactly that. There is a sense of urgency when you have a president who's threatening the integrity of our elections," he said on CNN's "State of the Union" "We need to act now if...

    House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff's rhetoric during the Trump impeachment inquiry has been "disgusting" and unworthy of congressional leadership, Rep. Lee Zeldin, R-N.Y., told "America's Newsroom" Monday. Zeldin was commenting on a speech Schiff, D-Calif., in which he threatened to send the president "back to the golden throne he came from." Zeldin also mocked Schiff's leadership skills and said his comments are hurting the country.

    The public on Tuesday will get its first look at Army Lt. Col. Alexander Vindman in action. And if he follows his closed-door testimony, he will knock his commander in chief while retelling his version of potentially damning conversations with a Trump ambassador. “I’m the director for Ukraine,” Col. Vindman told the joint House impeachment panel on Oct. 29. “I’m responsible for Ukraine. I’m the most knowledgeable. I’m the authority for Ukraine for the National Security Council and the White House.” “I’m certainly not the president of the United States,” he said at another point, when asked by a Republican...

    President Trump praised Rep. Elise Stefanik, R-N.Y., for her performance Friday at an impeachment hearing, where she asked effective questions of former Ukraine Ambassador Marie Yovanovitch and battled with House Intelligence Committee Chairman Rep. Adam Schiff, D-Calif. Stefanik took some public swipes at Schiff mocking him at Friday's impeachment hearing by reading old tweets from when the House Intelligence Committee chairman vowed to have the Ukraine whistleblower testify before his panel. The two also clashed over House procedures. “A new Republican Star is born. Great going @EliseStefanik!” Trump tweeted, retweeting a video clip of the 35-year-old congresswoman questioning Yovanovitch. [POTUS...

    After the Democrats' bogus impeachment hearing with Ambassador Bill Taylor on Wednesday, former United States Solicitor General Ken Starr told Fox News' Bret Bair that "no crime was proven today." “The members were very strong. I think the members overall acquitted themselves extremely well on both sides of the aisle. The quality of the questioning was extremely high for the most part," he said. "One key thing, the Republicans not only are rock solid, so that means if this trend continues, there is no hope for impeachment, for the conviction of the House — I mean, in the Senate." But...

Schiff is also going out of his way to protect the Biden's from scrutiny.

Here's who Democrats have to thankThe clown show known as an "impeachment inquiry" is getting more comical and hapless by the day. Consider the latest remark from the circus master himself, California Rep. Adam Schiff, (think Bozo, not Pennywise). The Democratic chairman of the House Intelligence Committee says he doesn’t want Republicans turning the impeachment proceedings into a “sham.” The hilarious irony is lost on no one. Schiff has already managed to accomplish it all on his own. At first, Schiff wanted the faux “whistleblower” who triggered...

    Rep. Adam Schiff (D-Calif.), the chairman of the House Intelligence Committee, said Republicans must justify the relevance of witnesses they want to call in public hearings as part of the impeachment inquiry into President Trump. Schiff in a letter to Rep. Devin Nunes (R-Calif.), the ranking member of the panel, late Wednesday outlined questions that will be used to weigh whether a witness's testimony would be germane. Among the questions are whether President Trump requested “that a foreign leader and government initiate investigations to benefit the President’s personal political interests” and if he sought to use his office “to apply...

    The Justice Department opened a new front in the legal battle between congressional impeachment investigators and the White House on Tuesday by announcing that Congress must allow government attorneys to accompany executive branch witnesses who testify about President Donald Trump's relations with Ukraine. In a newly-released memo, the Justice Department’s Office of Legal Counsel said “the assistance of agency counsel” is needed because testimony has the potential to disclose information “protected by executive privilege.” The House Intelligence Committee, which has taken the lead on the impeachment inquiry, has heard from a number of witnesses whose personal lawyers have been allowed...
