Adam Schiff Stops Devin Nunes From Turning Impeachment Hearings Into A Circus

.


House Intelligence Committee Chairman Rep. Adam Schiff (D-CA) sent a letter to ranking member Nunes that stopped any effort to derail the impeachment hearings.

The full text of Schiff’s letter to Nunes as provided to PoliticusUSA:

At approximately 11:20 a.m. today, the Majority provided notice to you and the Members of the Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence (the “Committee”) that the Committee will hold on November 13 at 10:00 a.m. the first in a series of open hearings as part of the House of Representatives’ impeachment inquiry. H. Res. 660 (the “Resolution”) affords the Minority the opportunity to identify and request witnesses to testify during the open hearings. Pursuant to the Resolution, the Minority should submit such a witness request in writing within 72 hours of the provision of such notice, which is Saturday, November 8, at 11:20 a.m.

The Majority does not intend to request public testimony from every witness who previously testified in depositions or interviews as part of the impeachment inquiry. If the Minority wishes for any of those witnesses to testify during the open hearings, please include them in your request for witnesses.

As directed by the Resolution, the Minority’s witness request must be submitted in writing, and must be accompanied by a detailed written justification of the relevance to the inquiry of the testimony of each requested witness. To guide relevance, the report submitted by the Committee on Rules to accompany the Resolution sets forth the inquiry’s parameters:
.
.


Republicans aren’t going to be allowed to hijack the impeachment hearings by inviting witnesses who are going to push absurd or unrelated conspiracy theories. Chairman Schiff and the Democrats have clearly learned their lesson from the Russia investigation hearings, and not giving Republicans any opening to make a mockery out of the impeachment investigation.

When clowns walk in the door ...

Schiff can keep the lid on it as much as he can, but can't keep them from opening their mouths, and that is when the stupid really gets rolling, though cant put it past the morons from all showing up in Maga hats.

27. November 7, 2019 Updated: see below

November 7, 2019

Schiff told Rep. Devin Nunes (R-Calif.), ranking member of the committee, that he has 72 hours to submit witness requests in writing, per the recent impeachment process resolution that House Democrats passed but was opposed by all GOP members and two Democrats.
The letter (pdf) misidentifies the date of Saturday as Nov. 8 when it’s actually Nov. 9.

... in big shoes and a red rubber nose. I think Adam Schiff should add a few more restrictions.

11. Schiff is smart, unflappable and most importantly has the

POWER of TRUTH and FACTS behind his gavel. The Repugs? Spitting, frothing, yelling, stammering and posturing for Faux News soundbites.

Nader would be okay, I prefer Schiff and his committee- thank you Madame Speaker - to lead our troops.

Nunes is nothing but a tool for the midget Mussolini.

16. Republicans will claim that Democrats are not allowing witnesses who can clear Trump.

Just as they lied and claimed they were being left out of the private hearings, they’ll make a fuss that their witnesses are legitimate and need to be heard. I’m sure Laura Ingraham and Rush Limbaugh would make fine witnesses!

42. So many on DU were concerned that Democratic leaders might not be "prepared" for what

the GOP would try to throw at them in hearings. That perhaps they wouldn't even have their questions thoroughly prepared.

I hope that's all been cleared up now.
