GOP Rep Shreds Schiff, Says He is the First Person Who Needs to Testify

On Sunday during an interview with Fox News host Chris Wallace, Republican Rep. and House Judiciary Committee member Doug Collins shredded Rep. Adam Schiff, revealing that Republicans plan to call on him to testify under oath.
"First and foremost, the first person that needs to testify is Adam Schiff," Collins started.
Collins then argued that Schiff was the one to "author" the entire impeachment inquiry in the first place.
"Adam Schiff is the author of this, Adam Schiff has been the author of many things, a lot of them found to be false over the last couple years," the Republican representative continued. "But he is the author of this report. He’s compared himself in the past to a special counsel. This is what he said he was doing. Well if we look back to Clinton, with Clinton Ken Starr was the special counsel and he presented a report that we are going to get in the Judiciary. He actually came and testified under oath and took questions. My first and foremost witness is Adam Schiff."
Collins wasn't the only Republican representative to call out Schiff over the weekend. On Saturday, Republican Rep. John Ratcliffe revealed the real reason why House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff is refusing to release a key transcript from Michael Atkinson's testimony.
Ratcliffe explained in a tweet that he believes Atkinson revealed a key connection between the whistleblower and people close to Schiff himself.
“It’s because I asked IG Atkinson about his ‘investigation’ into the contacts between Schiff’s staff and the person who later became the whistleblower. The transcript is classified ‘secret’ so Schiff can prevent you from seeing the answers to my questions,” he said.
Ratcliffe was responding to a tweet from investigative reporter Paul Sperry who tweeted: “Why is Schiff still withholding transcript of ICIG Michael Atkinson’s Oct 4 closed-door testimony which lasted 8+ hours? He’s released 15 witness transcripts but is still hiding Atkinson’s."
Although his impeachment hearings were a total bust, Schiff is going forward with impeaching President Trump anyways.
According to Breitbart, House Intelligence Committee chairman Rep. Adam Schiff is giving members of his committee only 24 hours to sign off on his bogus report where he recommends impeaching President Donald Trump.
The far-left representative announced that he will provide his report on Monday and members of the committee only have till Tuesday to read and sign off on the report.
Evidence is not on the Democrats' side in the ongoing impeachment inquiry but that doesn't seem to be stopping them. Schiff held multiple impeachment hearings in late November and although no impeachable offenses were found, Schiff has made it clear that he will impeach the President anyways.
In a recent letter, House Judiciary Committee chairman Jerry Nadler said that the House Intelligence Committee plans to submit their report, recommending impeachment against the President, stating that there was “a months-long effort in which President Trump again sought foreign interference in our elections for his personal and political benefit at the expense of our national interest”; and that the president conducted “an unprecedented campaign of obstruction in an effort to prevent the Committees from obtaining documentary evidence and testimony.”
