Something To Hide? Adam Schiff ‘Rejects’ GOP Request To Have Hunter Biden Testify
Adam Schiff has been carrying the Trump impeachment torch for a while now. He was one of the Dems that could not accept that the Mueller Report was a dud. Now it looks like he is trying to ensure that Trump is impeached, by preventing Republican requested witnesses, from getting the chance to say their piece. That would be fair and the Dems can’t have that.
According to Washington Examiner, “House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff rejected the GOP’s request that the panel summon Vice President Joe Biden’s son, Hunter Biden, to testify at public impeachment hearings next week.
The California Democrat also signaled he will not agree to some of the other witnesses Republicans requested Saturday, including Alexandra Chalupa, a former Democratic National Committee staffer who Republicans said worked with the Ukrainian Embassy in Washington, D.C., “to try to get political dirt on then-candidate Trump’s campaign.”
Schiff, who will head public impeachment hearings beginning Wednesday, said in a Saturday statement that he will consider a list of witness requests provided by the GOP.
“This inquiry is not, and will not serve, however, as a vehicle to undertake the same sham investigations into the Bidens or 2016 that the President pressed Ukraine to conduct for his personal political benefit, or to facilitate the President’s effort to threaten, intimidate, and retaliate against the whistleblower who courageously raised the initial alarm,” he said.
House Speaker Nancy Pelosi launched an impeachment inquiry into Donald Trump in late September after reports began emerging that a whistleblower filed a formal complaint over concerns that the president had asked Ukrainian leader Volodymyr Zelenskiy to probe his domestic political 2020 rival during a July phone call. A partial transcription of their conversation, released by the White House, confirmed that Trump did ask his foreign counterpart to investigate the Bidens. However, the president has repeatedly denied committing any wrongdoing and said there was no quid pro quo.”
Schiff’s actions are going to make the proceedings even less legitimate. I mean he could at least try and make it look like he is following the evidence, instead of attempting to reinforce his bias. I think we all know that the Dems are ready to impeach the president regardless of any exonerating evidence they may find. But really McConnell has already said this would never pass the Senate, so it’s just a huge waste of time on the House Dem’s part.
