New York Rep. Jerry Nadler has been put on notice that he has to give Republicans the opportunity to conduct their own hearings and it is not optional.
The New York representative has had an itch for President Donald Trump that he has been wanting to scratch since Nov. 8, 2016. The day President Trump shocked the world with his epic victory over favorite Hillary Clinton.
The Democrats have not been able to get over it since then and Rep. Nadler, along with his cohort, California Rep. Adam Schiff, have been at the forefront of that parade.
But now Georgia Rep. Doug Collins has put a monkey wrench in their plans by demanding that Republicans get at minimum one day to question their own witnesses.
The Georgia representative sent the letter to Nadler, who is heading the House Judiciary Committee part of the impeachment inquiry against the president, and told him that compliance was not optional.
“During yesterday’s impeachment hearing, Representative Jim Sensenbrenner (R-Wis.) furnished you with a timely demand for a minority day of hearings, signed by all Republican Members of the Committee,” Rep. Collins said.
“You declined repeated requests by Republican members during the hearing to acknowledge your obligation to schedule such a hearing or to provide any details on your planned schedule for further impeachment proceedings,” he said.
Collins said what every thinking American knows. That the entire impeachment clown show is a “sham” before he invoked a clause that states “Minority Members ‘shall be entitled to … call witnesses selected by the minority to testify with respect to that measure or matter during at least one day of hearing thereon.’”
“The requested minority hearing day must take place before articles of impeachment are considered by the Committee,” Collins said.
Collins was joined by Wisconsin Republican Rep. Jim Sensenbrenner during Nadler’s hearing demanding to know when the chairman would schedule a minority hearing day.
In his typical childlike fashion Nadler ignored the representative’s requests which is par for the course to what Democrats have been doing.
From the day they wrested the House away from Republicans they have been wanting to impeach the president, despite their claim in media interviews that they did not want to do it.
Anyone who has watched what they have said and done since Election Day 2016 is aware of their non stop pursuit of this president and their desire to destroy him.
Days ago when Speaker Nancy Pelosi announced that they would begin writing Articles of Impeachment anyone with the ability to think was not surprised.
But there are rules and laws that have to be abided by. No one man or woman, or even Party, has the ability to create their own laws and not be challenged on them.
This is going to be a major issue for Democrats as Republicans have announced that they want to call Schiff, the anonymous whistleblower, and former Vice President Joe Biden’s son Hunter Biden as witnesses.
Democrats know that calling those witnesses and having them testify under oath is going to have this entire sham collapse in front of their eyes.
The American people will then get to see what real corruption looks like and where it is coming from, and has been coming from for decades.
Trust and believe that Pelosi, Nadler and Schiff will do everything in their power to stop that from happening.
The war is on.
