House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff has been leading the Democrats impeachment inquiry into President Donald Trump, and it has completely imploded in recent weeks.
Every time the lying little Schiff releases new information to the public about the impeachment witch hunt, it further proves they have no case at all.
And after he held the first public impeachment hearings this week — the rumors about Schiff have been proven to be true.
During their public hearing on Wednesday, Democrats began with their star witness — former U.S. Ambassador to Ukraine William Taylor — but Schiff didn’t want him to say too much.
Schiff absolutely stunned Republicans and many Americans when he interrupted Republican attorney Steve Castor’s questioning of Taylor and changed the rules midway through so that Taylor didn’t have to answer questions from Republicans.
That is the very definition of a rigged process and how Democrats are leading a partisan, unfair witch hunt into the president.
Schiff’s sickening conduct came as Castor asked Taylor if he could understand why Trump might be concerned about the possibility that Ukraine had sought to keep him from being elected in 2016.
“I’ll allow the question, but—” Schiff said, interrupting Castor while he was asking his question.
Intelligence Committee Ranking Member Devin Nunes fired back with some harsh words.
“Are you seriously interrupting our time here?” Nunes demanded.
Schiff responded that he would “allow the question” and “won’t dock this from the time.”
“I just want to be clear, ambassador, if you’re able to verify the things that counsel has asked you in the prerequisite of the question, that’s fine,” Schiff said. “Otherwise, in questions from the majority or the minority that may assume facts not in evidence before you, you should be cautioned about that.”
Texas GOP Rep. John Ratcliff wasn’t impressed with this turn of events.
“Chairman, I sat here through the first 45 minutes and literally had an objection to almost the foundation of every question that Mr. Goldman asked regarding facts not in evidence, leading, but House Resolution 660 does not say that we are under the Federal Rules of Evidence,” Ratcliff said. “If it is your position that I should be asserting objections to questions that violate the Federal Rules of Evidence, let me know now, because this hearing is [going to] change significantly.”
Rather than address the issue, Schiff simply replied that he would allow the question, and ignored a demand from Nunes to clarify whether the Federal Rules of Evidence were to be considered in effect.
After Schiff basically told him he didn’t have to answer questions from Republicans, Taylor refused to answer a direct questions about whether Trump had a right to be concerned about Ukrainian involvement in U.S. elections.
Schiff’s conduct earned him sharp rebuke from North Carolina GOP Rep. Mark Meadows:
John Ratcliffe making a great point: Adam Schiff just apparently changed the rules mid-hearing.
Virtually every question Democrats asked was leading, hearsay, or some other federal evidence rules violation. Now Schiff seems to be saying he can enforce those rules.

There’s proof that Schiff is rigging the hearings and trying to conduct them in a way that is only negative to Trump.
This is just the latest string of horrific news for Schiff.
Late last week, Schiff got busted spreading a verifiable lie about one of his impeachment witnesses.
Tim Morrison, the departing Senior Director of European and Russian Affairs under Trump, testified that he listened to Trump’s July 25 phone call with Ukrainian President Volodymr Zelensky.
Morrison said the president did not discuss anything illegal during the conversation.
Schiff, who released a transcript of Morrison’s testimony this week, cherry-picked what Morrison had said and claimed he confirmed that Trump threatened to withhold Ukraine’s aid unless they investigated Biden.
Schiff also came under fire after he released the transcript of the committee’s interview with Taylor — but he forgot to redact the name of the man many believe to be the whistleblower.
Schiff is so incompetent that he released a transcript with the name of the alleged whistleblower.
Democrats impeachment plan has backfired in spectacular fashion, and now we know the “whistleblower” is nothing more than a partisan hack trying to take down the president.
