As the impeachment inquiry takes a sudden turn away from proving President Trump committed a crime, and towards Joe Biden, his son, and various Democrats, the Republicans are becoming frustrated, as the Democrats on the Democrat-led impeachment inquiry are cutting out and limiting the Republican House members access to the witnesses, as well as, their ability to ask questions!
Fox News reported…
House Republicans are demanding an “equal playing field” in the Democrat-led impeachment probe against President Trump after Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff said ahead of Thursday’s scheduled testimony from former U.S. envoy for Ukraine Kurt Volker that GOP members of the Foreign Affairs Committee will not be permitted to ask questions or have equal representation during the session.
Volker is scheduled to be the first key witness to testify as part of a probe into an anonymous whistleblower’s complaint about a July 25 phone call in which Trump asked Ukrainian president Volodymyr Zelensky to investigate Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden’s family’s dealings in the country. The interview will be behind closed doors.
Top Republicans on the House Foreign Affairs Committee announced outrage, that they were being wrongfully cut out of the process by Rep. Adam Schiff (D-CA), even as Schiff has now become compromised, showing that he has had his hands on the whistleblower complaint, days before the so-called ‘whistleblower’ even turned in the complaint to the CIA!
The House Foreign Affairs GOP expressed outrage, as Rep. Michael McCaul (R-TX) tweeted out…
“I was alarmed to learn – less than 24 hours before the first interview is scheduled to start – that it will be led by the Intelligence Committee and that questioning will be done solely by their staff. We were told that only a single Republican professional staffer from the Foreign Affairs Committee will be allowed to attend while the majority will have two. These constraints on committee and Republican participation are unacceptable and at odds with House Rules and general fairness. We demand equal representation and participation in this inquiry, there is too much at stake for America and Congress.”
Already, Republicans have been furious over the unConstitutional methods that Democrats have implemented the impeachment inquiry! They stated in a letter that…
“there is not a “House of Representatives’ impeachment inquiry. Intelligence Chairman Adam Schiff lacks the jurisdiction to investigate the Department of State’s conduct of United States foreign policy toward Ukraine. That prerogative belongs to our Members. Official impeachment inquiries are initiated by the adoption of a House resolution empowering or creating a committee or task force to undertake such activities. In both the Nixon and Clinton cases, the Judiciary Committee debated and reported a resolution authorizing the Judiciary Committee to investigate whether there were sufficient grounds to impeach the President, which was then debated and voted on by the full House of Representatives. There have been no such debates or votes in this Congress.”
Sadly, this is the first time that Congressional Democrats have become so irrational, that they bypass Constitutional powers that are granted to Congress, as they try to usurp the President’s power, throw him out of office, and seize power through an unconstitutional coup!
Now, as the President and his Administration employ the powers granted to them under the Constitution of the United States, to root out corruption and election interference, and expose the truth to the American people, the Democrats and their Media allies are terrified and trying to rapidly remove him from their path towards stealing power from the people, and implementing a global Marxist government! After all, they don’t want him to be successful in draining the swamp, as that will cost many of them their cushy, seats in Congress or elsewhere that are making them rich, as well as, force them to become the one thing they despise, JUST SIMPLY AN AVERAGE AMERICAN CITIZEN, or as they put it…JUST A DEPLORABLE!
