Impeachment Circus Quieted as Bolton Deputy Skips Hearing

The Democrats’ impeachment “inquiry” has been decried as “illegitimate” by a great many onlookers…including White House staffers.

The Democrats were explicitly warned that this would be the result of their secretive dealings.

Without a vote to authorize their “formal impeachment inquiry”, the White House would not be cooperating with lawmakers’ requests.  After all, those very lawmakers couldn’t be bothered to go on the record with their beliefs…at least not until Thursday, when the House will finally take a tally.

Until that time, however, the Democrats knew what to expect.

“I think what this is reflective of is this idea that when you continue to have these ongoing secretive closed-door hearings and you’re not even bringing in the most central figure to this, the person who made the allegations, the whistleblower, maybe it’s viewed as illegitimate,” Biggs said.

Charles Kupperman, a deputy to Bolton, is looking to the courts to resolve a new standoff in the impeachment inquiry, as Democrats threaten him with contempt for defying a subpoena at the direction of the White House.

The secrecy with which the Democrats have proceeded in this inquiry last week spurred a stunning protest by Republican lawmakers who stormed a sensitive hearing in a secure location deep in the bowels of Capitol Hill.
