Congressman Adam Schiff continued to promote his bizarre conspiracy theories surrounding President Trump and the leaker of Ukraine this week; saying Trump urged Zelensky to help in the 2020 election “the day after Mueller testified.”
“The day after Bob Mueller testified… Donald Trump is back on the phone asking yet another foreign leader, Zelensky, for yet more foreign help in another election,” Schiff said on ‘State of the Union.’

Schiff ratcheted-up his war-of-words with the White House during the same interview; saying supporters of President Trump will ultimately have to defend their actions to their “future children and grandchildren.”
“Republican members in the future to their children and their grandchildren will have to explain why they did nothing in the face of this deeply unethical man who did such damage to the country,” Schiff told CNN’s Jake Tapper.

President Trump continued to blast the Democrats’ latest Ukraine-Impeachment fantasy from the White House Wednesday; saying the entire spectacle is a “Kangaroo Court headed by Little Shifty Schiff.”
“Right now, you have a kangaroo court headed by Little Shifty Schiff. We don’t have lawyers, we don’t have witnesses, we don’t have anything,” said the President. “It’s a scam, it’s a big scam.”
Early Warning: Schiff Tells Republicans to Stay Away from Biden, Whistleblower on Eve of Hearings
House Intel Chair Adam Schiff issued a dire warning Tuesday to Republican lawmakers on the eve of public hearings from his impeachment inquiry; telling legislators to stay away from Hunter Biden and the Ukraine whistleblower.
“House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff set the stage for the first public hearings as part of the impeachment inquiry by vowing to keep questions at Wednesday’s lead-off session focused on the Ukraine controversy — in an implicit shot at Republican members who have signaled an interest in turning the tables on Democrats as they defend President Trump,” reports Fox News.
“It is important to underscore that the House’s impeachment inquiry, and the Committee, will not serve as venues for any Member to further the same sham investigations into the Bidens or into debunked conspiracies about 2016 U.S. election interference that President Trump pressed Ukraine to undertake for his personal political benefit,” Schiff, D-Calif., wrote as part of a memo.
“The House’s inquiry into whether grounds exist for President Trump’s impeachment has been, and will continue to be, a sober and rigorous undertaking,” Schiff wrote to both Democrat and Republican members of the committee,

Denied Entry: Rep. Matt Gaetz ‘Kicked Out’ of Democrats’ Impeachment Hearing
GOP Rep. Matt Gaetz was abruptly removed from the Democrats’ ongoing impeachment hearing Monday after the Republican attempted to take-part in the House Intelligence Committee’s latest effort to remove President Trump from office.
“Gaetz, who sits on the House Judiciary Committee, attempted to attend the testimony of Fiona Hill, a former deputy assistant to the president, but was told that because he was not a member of the House Intelligence Committee that he had to leave. The House Intelligence, Oversight and Foreign Affairs committees are conducting the impeachment inquiry into Trump,” reports Fox News.
“It’s not like I’m on agriculture,” Gaetz said. “What are the Democrats so afraid of?”
“Judiciary Chairman [Jerry Nadler] claimed to have begun the impeachment inquiry weeks ago,” Gaetz tweeted. “Now, his own Judiciary members aren’t even allowed to participate in it. And yes – my constituents want me actively involved in stopping the #KangarooCourtCoup run by Shifty Schiff.”
