House Minority Whip Steve Scalise, Rep. Jim Jordan shredded Adam Schiff over his censorship of their questions to witnesses, the continuation of the Soviet-style scheme he’s been running for weeks and the one-sided leaks by Adam Schiff crafted to attack President Trump. Still no actual due process for the President. Scalise and Jordan

“When we asked [Vindman] who he spoke to after important events in July — Adam Schiff says, ‘no, no, no, we’re not going to let him answer that question,”‘ Jordan said.

Jordan went on to say that Schiff seemed to be breaking his own rules for the hearings, implying the chairman was acting almost like a “lawyer” for Vindman.

“This stinks to high heaven. This shouldn’t be allowed, not in the United States of America.”

“They’re trying to impeach a president behind closed doors without due process.”

(…)”The Democrats run out here and say, ‘ooh, the Republicans are trying to figure out who the whistleblower is,'” Jordan continued. “We’re trying to figure out who our witness list is! The resolution that the Speaker has just filed … she points this out in the resolution that this is going to go to the Judiciary Committee if in fact, they push it there. There will be witnesses called. We would like to figure out who those witnesses should be.”

“This is an impeachment inquiry. And, in fact, Speaker [Nancy] Pelosi’s resolution confirms that it’s an impeachment inquiry, yet every other impeachment inquiry we’ve had have in the history of our country – all three – have allowed both sides to call witnesses,” Scalise told reporters. “Have allowed the White House to participate. That’s not happening right now.

“It’s clear Pelosi needs to declare a mistrial,” Scalise said. “This has been a tainted process from the start. What happened today confirms even worse just how poorly Adam Schiff is handling this process, denying the ability for Republicans to even ask basic questions that are critical to the heart of whether or not a President of the United States is impeached.”
