SNAKES: Liberal Media Reporter Caught Taking Pictures Of GOP Impeachment Notes

During a recess at a House Judiciary Committee hearing last week, two left-wing photographers were caught on camera sneaking photos of a Republican representative's notes.
Republican Rep. Devin Nunes reacted on Twitter by posting the video with the caption: "Media spy games!"
The reporter was soon identified as Reuters photographer Josh Roberts. Rep Matt Gaetz made sure to call him out once the session resumed.
“Before I make my point, during the break, a Reuters photographer, Josh Roberts, approached the dais and took pictures of the notes [on] the desks of several of my Democratic colleagues," Gaetz said. "We noticed that, announced it to staff. That photographer has been removed. I would just say, no member, Republican or Democrat, should be subject to that.”
The moment came around the same time that the House Judiciary Committee voted to move forward with impeaching President Trump.
On Friday morning, the House Judiciary Committee voted 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.”
Although impeachment will most likely go through the House, removing President Trump from office is extremely unlikely.
According to a CNN report, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell plans to acquit President Donald Trump if impeachment were to make its way to the Senate. This move would be huge considering McConnell would be going much farther than simply dismissing the impeachment charges against the President.
