The House Judiciary Committee will hold its first public impeachment hearings on December 4th; setting the stage for another week of fiery testimony from former and current Trump administration officials.

“The House Judiciary Committee will hold its first hearing next week on the impeachment of President Donald Trump, the next phase in the process that could result in the third-ever presidential impeachment before the end of the year,” reports Politico.

“The hearing, scheduled for next Wednesday, will focus on the definition of an impeachable offense and the formal application of the impeachment process. The panel will invite White House lawyers to attend and participate,” adds the website.

Original Story: November 26, 2019

As Congressman Adam Schiff plans to wind-down his Intelligence Committee’s public impeachment hearings within the coming days, the Democrats’ latest effort to remove President Trump will soon shift to Rep. Jerrold Nadler’s Judiciary panel.

“Nadler, a scrappy Democratic veteran of New York’s and Washington’s political wars, will be back in the spin cycle and up to his elbows in hot water. He will find himself tested—not only by comparisons with Schiff, whose performance Democrats have praised, but also by his own committee, which is far more fractious and unruly than the California Democrat’s,” reports the Atlantic.

“Nadler assumed chairmanship of the committee when Democrats took control of the House in January, and despite his long alliance with Speaker Nancy Pelosi, their relations have sometimes seemed strained in the months since,” adds the website.

“Chairman Nadler and the Members and staff of the Judiciary Committee will proceed in the next phase of the impeachment inquiry. I urge all members to find guidance from our oath of office to protect and defend the Constitution,” said Schiff.

COWARDLY CLARIFICATION: Adam Schiff Says the ‘Essence’ of Mueller’s Testimony is that Trump is ‘Unpatriotic’

posted by Hannity Staff - 7.25.19

Rep. Adam Schiff weighed-in on Robert Mueller’s disastrous testimony Thursday afternoon; saying the “essence” of the former special counsel’s testimony is that “the President is unpatriotic.”

“He was a reluctant witness… Even though [Robert Mueller] was reluctant, as you can imagine, to provide the soundbite ‘the President is immoral, the President is unpatriotic,’ that is the essence of what he had to say,” clarified Rep. Schiff.

Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi doubled-down on her Obstruction of Justice accusations against President Trump Wednesday evening; saying the American public “must understand what President Trump is trying to cover up.”

“As we legislate for the good of the American people, we are also investigating to make sure that Americans have the truth and understand the gravity of the threat to our democracy. They must understand what @realDonaldTrump is trying to cover up,” posted Pelosi on social media.

“The American people now realize more fully the crimes that were committed against our Constitution,” she told reporters following Mueller’s disastrous appearance before Congress.

President Trump weighed-in Wednesday on Robert Mueller’s disastrous Congressional testimony; thanking the Democratic Party “for holding this morning’s hearings” and calling Rep. Adam Schiff an “embarrassment to our country.”

“I would like to thank the Democrats for holding this morning’s hearing. Now, after 3 hours, Robert Mueller has to subject himself to #ShiftySchiff – an Embarrassment to our Country!” tweeted Trump.

The New York Post Editorial Board blasted Rep. Jerrold Nadler’s Mueller hearing Wednesday; calling the entire spectacle a “waste of everyone’s time.”

“By all accounts, House Judiciary Committee Chairman Jerry Nadler hoped that dragging in former special counsel Bob Mueller for a hearing would jump-start his drive to get going on impeachment. Oops: It was a total waste of time,” writes the Editorial Board. “Mueller made it clear long in advance that he didn’t want to testify, and wouldn’t talk about anything except what was in his report. He even got the Justice Department to issue a guidance instructing him to keep to his preferred limits.”

“What did we learn? Nothing. What’s the impact? Nothing. If Nadler was hoping to get Democrats and their voters energized about impeachment, he’ll surely be disappointed. And we’re no closer to knowing how much this long investigation relied on opposition research by Hillary Clinton and dirty tricks by intelligence operatives appalled by Donald Trump,” adds the Post.

‘IT’S UN-AMERICAN’: Rep. Doug Collins RIPS Democrats’ Latest Impeachment Push

Rep. Doug Collins unloaded on House Democrats’ latest impeachment push Thursday; saying their “behind-closed-door” efforts to remove President Trump from office is “unprecedented and un-American.”

“Conducting an impeachment investigation behind closed doors isn’t just unprecedented—it’s un-American. It doesn’t afford due process, and it’s not what we’re about,” Collins told Fox & Friends.

Collins joins his Republican colleagues in their fierce criticism of the Democrats’ impeachment effort.

Representatives Jim Jordan and Matt Gaetz ripped Adam Schiff’s latest move to impeach President Trump from the Capitol Tuesday; calling his committee a “Kangaroo Court” and labeling the Intel Chair as “Captain Kangaroo.”

“What we see in this impeachment is a kangaroo court, and Chairman Schiff is acting like a malicious Captain Kangaroo,” said Gaetz.

President Trump made similar comments Tuesday morning regarding the Democrats’ obsession with his 33-minute phone call with the leader of Ukraine.

“I would love to send Ambassador Sondland, a really good man and great American, to testify, but unfortunately he would be testifying before a totally compromised kangaroo court, where Republican’s rights have been taken away, and true facts are not allowed out for the public to see. Importantly, Ambassador Sondland’s tweet, which few report, stated, ‘I believe you are incorrect about President Trump’s intentions. The President has been crystal clear: no quid pro quo’s of any kind.’ That says it ALL!” posted the President on social media.
