During Thursday's House Judiciary Committee hearing, Republican ranking member Doug Collins stormed out of the meeting and returned fifteen minutes later to shred House Democrats.
At 4:41pm eastern time, Collings threw down his notes and walked out of the hearing.
“Y’all have anymore you want to put in[to the record], keep going,” Collins said as he walked out. “It is not going to get you anywhere.”
Far-left Chairman Jerry Nadler couldn't believe what he had seen.
At 4:46pm, he came back just to shred the Democrats for their bogus inquiry.
“What you just said is completely true that this will never end,” Collins said while responding to Republican Rep. Kelly Armstrong. “Do you know why we know that? Adam Schiff’s own words and Al Green’s own words. Adam Schiff even the other day, giving one of his press conferences, which he loves dearly. He loves to testify in front of cameras, just not in front of members where he has to actually answer questions. And he said we’re going to keep at it, no matter what happens, we’re going to keep investigating, investigating, investigating, investigating.”
On Friday morning, the House Judiciary Committee voted in favor of moving forward with the two articles of impeachment against President Trump. The vote was 23-17 in favor of impeachment.
Just last Tuesday, House Democrats led by Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi announced that they were filing articles of impeachment against President Donald Trump, accusing him of "obstructing Congress" and "abuse of power."
Check out what the Daily Caller reported:
Despite Pelosi’s early reluctance to push for impeachment, there are currently 228 Democrats who have voiced support for impeachment or an impeachment inquiry. Pelosi has said she believes Trump is “goading” Democrats to impeach him because he thinks it will help him fire up his base.
Democrats have continued to send congressional subpoenas to those close to Trump for documents related to the ongoing scandal regarding the president’s phone call with the president of Ukraine — specifically whether Trump asked him to investigate former Vice President Joe Biden in exchange for U.S. military aid. The House Intelligence, Foreign Affairs, and Oversight committees are all investigating Trump, his cabinet members and closest allies.
As the impeachment agenda from the left continues, it is becoming increasingly clear that the entire impeachment process is just a way for Democrats to get "back" at President Trump.
During a summit in Washington D.C. on Tuesday, Pelosi accidentally undermined her own impeachment agenda against President Donald Trump when she said that the impeachment process against him has actually been going on for "two and a half" years.
The Speaker was asked about the speed of the impeachment process. She responded, “Speed? It’s been going on 22 months—two and a half years, actually.”
Pelosi continued, “I think we are not moving with speed. Was it two a half years ago they initiated the Mueller investigation? It’s not about speed. It’s about urgency. One of the charges against the president of the United States—saying he was violating the oath of office by asking for government to interfere in our election undermining the integrity of our elections.”
She added, “If we did not hold him accountable, he would continue to undermine our elections. Nothing less is at stake than the central point of our democracy, of a free and fair election not to be disrupted by foreign powers.”
