Cipollone falsely claims Republicans were barred from impeachment depositions

Source: Axios

White House counsel and lead Trump lawyer Pat Cipollone falsely claimed during the Senate trial Tuesday that Republicans were barred from attending the House impeachment inquiry's closed-door hearings.

"Not even Mr. Schiff's Republican colleagues were allowed into the SCIF," Cipollone claimed.

Head impeachment manager Rep. Adam Schiff (D-N.Y.) responded that he would not suggest that Cipollone would "deliberately make a false statement, but that "he's mistaken" and that Republicans were given equal time to question witnesses during the closed-door depositions.

Republicans who are members of the three committees conducting the impeachment inquiry the House Intelligence, Foreign Affairs and Oversight committees were invited to and did attend impeachment hearings, which took in place in a Sensitive Compartmented Information Facility (SCIF).

1. Schiff called him out on that and the other lies

he told, but politely gave Cipollone the benefit of the doubt.

10. He was being too polite. It was a craven lie, rendering Cip absolutely bereft of credibility.

It was not a "mistake." It was deliberate. It was premeditated.

2. Time to file ethics complaint against Cipollone? After all isn't deliberately lying in court

frowned on by most state bar associations?

4. They've got nothing but talking points.

And old, stale ones at that.

If this were a Democratic Senate, even by 1 Senator, Trump would be toast.

7. In case people are puzzled by this..........

Cipollone knows his lying - they all do. Just like when Trump says the wall has been built - or is being built. They will do this in the senate, they will do it in congress, they will do it standing in Arlington cemetery or at the statue of Lincoln.

Trump will do it at Davos, it doesn't matter that sane people know that these things aren't true, it doesn't matter that responsible media will fact check. All that matters is that they have video of them saying it - and Fox News and other media will show it.

People laughed at Chemical Ali in Iraq, but that is exactly what the Republicans party have become. Bare face liars who don't care, they are just using Washington as a backdrop to tell lies, to people who are happy to receive them. They inhabit a separate universe.

Today's GOPee is bad faith wrapped in the flag.

And what flag exactly, doesn't even seem to matter anymore.

13. Hilarious photo! His malevolence is fighting for control of his "face."

He looks close to barking, snarling and biting.

14. I always get a kick out of his name too, which as you know means 'big onion'

Must be because his lies make you laugh so hard you'll cry.

He really came across as a pedantic teenager, I think.
