Impeachment goes public this week, with a number of highly-anticipated hearings set to take place in the coming days.
This will be first chance for many Americans to see exactly what it is that the liberal left has been cooking up for their “formal inquiry” into impeaching President Trump, and to decide whether or not House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff’s bark is worse than his bite.
Schiff, for his part, is hoping to pigeonhole the inquiry, sticking to only the Democratically-approved talking points, and warning that the Republicans must do the same.
House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff set the stage for the first public hearings as part of the impeachment inquiry by vowing to keep questions at Wednesday’s lead-off session focused on the Ukraine controversy — in an implicit shot at Republican members who have signaled an interest in turning the tables on Democrats as they defend President Trump.
“It is important to underscore that the House’s impeachment inquiry, and the Committee, will not serve as venues for any Member to further the same sham investigations into the Bidens or into debunked conspiracies about 2016 U.S. election interference that President Trump pressed Ukraine to undertake for his personal political benefit,” Schiff, D-Calif., wrote as part of a memo and letter to colleagues on procedures for the open hearings.
Of course, the American people deserve better, and Republican leaders have been openly critical of Schiff’s attempts to silence discussions regarding the possibly Biden-backed Ukrainian corruption that tipped off this entire narrative.
