Drumpf says Dems should NOT have public hearings.

No, there is not a typo in my header. After weeks of complaints that hearings were not public and the Dems were hiding the truth, now that we are heading into the public hearings phase of this process, drumpf is attacking us for holding public hearings.

Trump: Democrats shouldn’t hold public impeachment hearings
From CNN's Kevin Liptak
President Trump said Democrats shouldn’t hold public hearings in the impeachment inquiry.

Speaking to reporters at the White House before a trip to Atlanta, Trump said the public hearings were a continuation of a “hoax."

"They shouldn't be having public hearings. This is a hoax. This is just like the Russian witch hunt," Trump said.
Some background: Democrats announced the first public hearings in the impeachment inquiry will begin next week. Top US diplomat in the Ukraine Bill Taylor, State Department official George Kent and former US ambassador to Ukraine Marie Yovanovitch are scheduled to testify.

The public hearings will be conducted just by the House Intelligence Committee. Under rules passed by the House last week, both Democrats and Republicans will have 45-minute blocks to question witnesses in which staff attorneys can participate.

Remember: Trump and the Republican party have criticized the impeachment inquiry, which began with closed-door depositions limited to the House committees directly involved in the investigation, for a lack of transparency. The House voted last week to formalize the impeachment inquiry, a resolution that included protocols for the public hearings.

We'll be watching. You probably won't be watching. You should. It's the beginning of the end for you.

3. First the cockroach hides in the corner and complains that there's no daylight

But once that light shines on the cockroach, he knows he's about to be discovered and squashed under a steel toe boot.
