House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy stopped-by ‘Hannity’ Wednesday night to weigh-in on the Democrats’ latest impeachment push; saying Adam Schiff cannot be a prosecutor because he’s a “fact witness.”
“Now, they won’t bring the whistleblower forward… What is Adam Schiff trying to hide? Once again, he’s taking America through a nightmare because of his lies,” said McCarthy.
“We know there was contact with Schiff’s office, that would mean he’s compromised. How could anybody allow this man to run any investigation? He’s a fact witness,” added Hannity.
“He’s a fact witness. In our judicial system a fact witness cannot be a prosecutor,” said McCarthy.

BACKLASH: McCarthy, Meadows RIP Pelosi’s ‘Sham’ Impeachment Inquiry Vote
Representatives Kevin McCarthy and Mark Meadows slammed Nancy Pelosi’s impending impeachment inquiry vote this week; calling the entire process a “sham.”
“It’s been 34 days since Nancy Pelosi unilaterally declared her impeachment inquiry. Today’s backtracking is an admission that this process has been botched from the start. We will not legitimize the Schiff/Pelosi sham impeachment,” posted McCarthy on social media.

“House Democrats now suddenly saying they’ll vote on an impeachment resolution to ‘ensure transparency’ is rich—considering they’ve spent weeks conducting interviews in secret, leaking their own talking points while locking down any and all information that benefits the President,” added Meadows.

Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi confirmed Monday that she will call a vote to “formalize” impeachment proceedings against President Trump on Thursday.
“The resolution — which ‘establishes the procedure for hearings,’ according to a statement by Speaker Nancy Pelosi — will mark the first floor vote on impeachment since Democrats formally launched their inquiry a month ago,” reports Politico.

“We are taking this step to eliminate any doubt as to whether the Trump Administration may withhold documents, prevent witness testimony, disregard duly authorized subpoenas, or continue obstructing the House of Representatives,” Pelosi said in a letter.
BACKLASH BUILDS: More Lawmakers Call for Schiff to RESIGN from House Intel Committee
A growing number of Republican lawmakers and national figures called for Rep. Adam Schiff to resign from the House Intelligence Committee Tuesday; citing years of non-stop and baseless allegations regarding President Trump “colluding” with foreign nationals.
“He’s been on every TV show 50 times a day for practically the last two years, promising Americans that this president would either be impeached or indicted,” said senior presidential advisor Kellyanne Conway Monday. “He has no right, as somebody who has been peddling a lie, day after day after day, unchallenged.”
“He owes an apology to the American public,” added House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy. “There is no place in Adam Schiff’s world or in Congress that he should be chair of the intel committee.”
“There is no way he could lead the intel committee and he should step back,” McCarthy added.
“They should be removed from their chairmanships,” said RNC Chairwoman Ronna McDaniel. “They owe the American people an apology. They owe this president an apology, and they have work to do to heal this democracy because this is our country we are talking about.”
