Nunes demands Schiff testify behind closed doors in Trump impeachment inquiry

Source: The Hill

BY TAL AXELROD - 11/08/19 11:05 PM EST

Rep. Devin Nunes (R-Calif.), the top Republican on the House Intelligence Committee, has formally requested that Rep. Adam Schiff (D-Calif.), the chair of the panel, privately testify as part of the House’s impeachment investigation into President Trump.

In a letter to Schiff, which was obtained and released by Fox News, Nunes wrote that the Intelligence Committee should not be conducting the “show trial" impeachment inquiry.

"On November 6th, you announced the beginning of public hearings associated with the Democratic Party's partisan impeachment inquiry into President Donald J. Trump," Nunes wrote Friday.

"Based on the precedent and lack of jurisdiction, the House Intelligence Committee should not take the lead in conducting such hearings; however, by now the American people know your desire to see the duly-elected president removed from office outweighs your sense of responsibility to running a functioning intelligence oversight committee.

1. Everything Nunez touches leaks.

Hmmm . . . “The letter to Schiff was obtained and released by Fox News.”

23. I'm trying to get the spelling of his name right. Is it Nunez.. I always thought it was Numnuts. Ok!

Let the circus begin. So the regugs have a dog and pony show lined up.

That should be non-informative. However, it will be funny to watch the three chimps hear no evil, and see no evil, trying to keep speak no evil from speaking one word of truth. Oh well, that's is definitely not going to happen. Truth is not a desired trait.

The predominant genetic makeup of today's repugs is not express in eye color or hair color but the degree of delusional lying they are prone to.

Nunes cows. Poor things have to tolerate this fool? Sending the letter to Faux was so much easier than Nunes sneaking over to the WH in the dead of night the way he did last time he reported to Don the Con. Now we will have Gym Jordan doing something stupid, to outwit Nunes. The gop is very entertaining, if not too smart.

is a virtual cornucopia of the dumbfuckery that's become the standard of the new GOP. After his Congressional career is over it's said he's been offered such auspicious positions in the private sector, such as 'Speed-Bump' or 'Book End' in the GOP Hall-of-Fame.

18. Devin has it all figured out.

Get testimony behind closed doors, then he will hightail it to the WH in the dead of night, to report to the Orange Mistake. All credit will go to Devin, maybe tRump will pat him on the head? Got to hand it to the gop. They choose "leaders" who are as ignorant as themselves. No truly intelligent candidates are allowed in that circle of idiots.

be gross, and watching them one more second even grosser.

My revulsion is so high I have to mute/ff through most of them. Used to be I wanted to know what the other side was saying (back before this extreme crazy) but have lost the stomach for it.

That said, Schiff would indeed be masterful and they pathetic.

they know they have fox and RW media to help them out.



........Republicans have seized on the fact that Schiff was aware there was a whistleblower, with whom his staff interacted. However, Schiff has said he did not know anything of the person’s complaint prior to its filing.

"Although you publicly claim nothing inappropriate was discussed, the three committees deserve to hear directly from you the substance and circumstances surrounding any discussions conducted with the whistleblower, and any instructions you issued regarding those discussions," Nunes wrote. "Given that you have reneged on your public commitment to let the committees interview the whistleblower directly, you are the only individual who can provide clarity as to these conversations."

The letter indicates that Republicans intend to continue focusing on the investigations process as a means of defending Trump even as multiple witnesses expressed misgivings about Trump’s interactions with Zelensky.
