Day 7 Of Impeachment Hearings
As usual, we are faced with another day of the impeachment hearings, the evidence is claimed to be shown that shows guilt beyond a shadow of a doubt, but for some odd reason, the only ones that feel this way are the Democrats.
The hearing started off as all the rest did, the minority were cut off, told they could not call witnesses until the vote for articles of impeachment came up, in other words, only after the fact.
What is more surprising is that now Schumer and the Democrats in the Senate are demanding equal access to the hearings, one can only hope that the GOP, which controls the Senate move to give them the same access the Democrats gave to the GOP in the House.
We heard claims of guilt with pressuring the Ukraine president, yet nothing was shown that this was done. Trump did ask them to investigate interference with the 2016 election, never once mentioned the Biden’s by name, but that did not matter because they had their hands in this, it must be a violation of the law, although what law no one can show.
Further, Nadler openly stated in his opening statement why the urgency with this hearing and impeachment to follow. He said they were doing this to ensure the legitimacy of the 2020 election. What most of America got out of that was they were moving to remove POTUS, they knew with him running they would not win the people’s House.
Next, Horowitz is scheduled to testify before the Senate Judiciary Committee Wednesday morning to answer questions about his probe.
The Horowitz findings come amid another, broader inquiry related to the 2016 election: Barr has assigned John Durham, the U.S. attorney for Connecticut, to conduct an inquiry into alleged misconduct and alleged improper government surveillance on the Trump campaign during the 2016 presidential election. That investigation is criminal in nature, and Republicans may look to it to uncover wrongdoing that the inspector general wasn’t examining.
The most unusual thing was during the hearings, the attorney for the Majority then was given the floor and told he could question the counsel for the minority, something that was quickly questioned. Further, the constant badgering bordered on harassment, but Nadler allowed that to go on.
