On Monday, Florida Republican Rep. Matt Gaetz was told to leave a congressional hearing by far-left California Democratic Rep. Adam Schiff.
Gaetz who is a member of the House Judiciary Committee attempted to listen to the testimony from former National Security expert, Fiona Hill, however Schiff blocked him from entering.
According to Gaetz, he was told to leave because he wasn’t a member of the House Intelligence Committee.
The Florida representative slammed Schiff for not allowing him to enter, saying that the move indicates that House Democrats don’t feel ” good about the facts in their case” in regards to the impeachment inquiry.
“If Adam Schiff and House Democrats felt good about the facts in their case, they would want everyone to see them. But because this is a Kangaroo Court impeachment, there is no method of concealment or misrepresentation they will not deploy – from lying about contact with the Whistleblower, to reading a fake transcript, to refusing to release transcripts, to even barring members of Congress from official proceedings. Sad!” Gaetz said.
The congressional hearing was with Fiona Hill who advised President Donald Trump on matters relating to Russia. The hearing on Monday was put on by Democrats who asked her about her knowledge relating to President Trump’s phone call with the Ukrainian president.
Schiff doesn’t seem to be too confident about the facts in his case considering he is now backtracking, saying that the politically bias CIA whistleblower who started the entire impeachment inquiry does NOT need to testify even though Schiff has supported a testimony from the whistleblower in the past.
During an interview on Sunday, Schiff retreated when he suggested that the House Intelligence Committee may not need to interview the anti-Trump, bias CIA whistleblower who claimed President Trump had an inappropriate phone call with the Ukrainian President.
Schiff has lied about his past contact with the whistleblower and recent revelations show that Schiff had been in contact with the whistleblower long before the complaint was even made. Since the complaint was made public, Schiff frequently voiced support for a public testimony from the whistleblower however his stance on the matter has clearly changed.
“Given that we already have the call record, we don’t need the whistleblower who wasn’t on the call to tell us what took place during the call, we have the best evidence of that,” Schiff said on “Face the Nation.” “It may not be necessary to take steps that might reveal the whistleblower’s identity to do that, and we’re going to make sure we protect that whistleblower.”
On Monday, President Trump hammered Schiff, demanding that the whistleblower must testify: “Adam Schiff now doesn’t seem to want the Whistleblower to testify. NO! Must testify to explain why he got my Ukraine conversation sooo wrong, not even close. Did Schiff tell him to do that? We must determine the Whistleblower’s identity to determine WHY this was done to the USA,” the President tweeted.
He continued: “Democrat’s game was foiled when we caught Schiff fraudulently making up my Ukraine conversation, when I released the exact conversation Transcript, and when Ukrainian President and the Foreign Minister said there was NO PRESSURE, very normal talk! A total Impeachment Scam!”
