Rep. Adam Schiff, D-Calif., just banned a key Republican lawmaker from the deposition of a former anti-Trump national security official believed to be at the center of ongoing Ukraine proceedings, sources tell The Federalist. Schiff tossed Rep. Matt Gaetz, R-Fla., out of the deposition.
Adam Schiff, Nancy Pelosi and the rest of the House are ‘beyond positive’ that President Trump had committed crimes ‘worthy of impeachment‘, and confidentially saying that he will ‘absolutely be impeached’. Yet, the have begun banning Republicans from attending the depositions, are holding testimony meetings in secret, and refuse to put impeachment of the president to a vote. What do all those things add up to? A monkey trial in a banana republic, that’s what, and these sham proceedings are a national disgrace.
America stands on a very dangerous precipice, and is nigh close to going over the edge. Democrats are not only keeping these meetings from public scrutiny, but they are racing full-speed to an impeachment that has not even been officially authorized by Congress. That is anarchy, that is the type of thing you see in third world countries, and that is the type of thing that could just well topple the entire system. It is obvious to anyone watching that the Democrats are just making it up as they go, hurling accusations without proof, and then pronouncing guilt as if a trial had been already concluded. When a country loses the perception of justice, it cracks the very foundation it is resting on. This monkey trial by the Democrats, regardless of outcome, has already made America the loser.
Schiff Says Secret Testimony Aimed at Keeping Trump in the Dark
FROM THE FEDERALIST: Although the U.S. House of Representatives has not approved a resolution authorizing a formal impeachment investigation, House Democrats have nonetheless insisted that they have full authority to subpoena all documents and testimony they desire, even if specific committees lack the jurisdiction to demand particular information. Schiff, whom Pelosi tapped to lead her party’s anti-Trump impeachment efforts, chairs the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence (HPSCI), which only has jurisdiction over the federal government’s intelligence agencies and related components.

Withhold key facts.

According to the Congressional Research Service, formal impeachment proceedings are typically referred to the House Judiciary Committee. Gaetz sits on that committee; Schiff does not. The House has yet to approve a resolution granting broad impeachment investigative authority to any of its committees.
House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff defended holding testimony behind closed doors in the impeachment inquiry he’s heading up against President Donald Trump, likening this phase of the investigation to a “grand jury.” source
Several officials told The Federalist that they believe Fiona Hill, who was subpoenaed last week to share her knowledge of allegations of wrongdoing against Trump regarding a phone conversation he had with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky on July 25, is one of the unnamed sources for the anti-Trump whistleblower whose August 12 complaint fanned congressional impeachment fires. Hill was reportedly planning to testify about her knowledge of the ouster of Marie Yovanovitch, a controversial figure who was removed from her post as U.S. ambassador to Ukraine in May.
Schiff has come under fire for blatantly lying about his staff’s interactions with the anti-Trump complainant. Although he falsely denied that neither he nor his staff had any interactions with the complainant, his team had actually coordinated with the complainant before the complaint against Trump was even filed.
Schiff has also raised the ire of transparency and open government advocates by selectively leaking incomplete and out-of-context information against Trump while stubbornly refusing to release full transcripts of his depositions of federal officials subpoenaed by his committee. READ MORE
