Basically they want secret meetings so they can leak false narratives and deny Republicans the right to question the witnesses. Its worse than a Kangaroo Court.


"...Pelosi’s Democrats are rushing to a final impeachment vote before Thanksgiving. They’re deposing witnesses behind closed doors and denying Republicans fair time to ask questions and the right to call their own witnesses — and won’t even release full interview transcripts.

Instead, they’re leaking negative info and withholding favorable facts — feeding fanatically anti-Trump media to repeat slanted interpretations as fact.

This is no constitutional effort to get at the full facts: It’s a rush to sell the public on a narrative of presidential wrongdoing.

The White House is entirely right to call out Pelosi’s game. And her only proper response is to treat her drive to impeach Trump the same way her Republican predecessors did their drive to impeach Clinton."

With all the attacks on Barr, Democrats are, by their standards, committing obstruction of justice.

Remember when it didn't matter one iota how we found out about the crooked stuff on the DNC server, just that we did find it out?

Ah, those were the good 'ole days!

When everything bommerrangs on you that's pretty much all one has to fall back on. Well, that and the race card.

And as usual, his whatabouts have nothing to do with the topic at hand.
Democrats could have a vote on impeachment proceedings. They know they would either lose the vote or it would cost them the House. Plus actual impeachment proceedings would make them look like hypocritical idiots. So they want leaks to favored news organizations so they can control the narrative.

Openness terrifies the Dems. Its why they have tried to shut out Fox News. Its why they are trying to turn Google, Twitter and YouTube into DNC affiliates.

The law protects them from retaliation, i.e. if they were fired or demoted they could sue etc. I see nothing in there that says they can make an allegation and never have to testify in open court. Or to remain anonymous in all court proceedings.

There's one huge difference. The DNC did crooked things and it is not clear that DJT did anything wrong. No quid pro quo, Ukraine's prez said no pressure. DJT asking another country to look into possible criminal activity is not in and of itself wrong.

Except that there's irrefutable proof that there was no illegality, waste, or corruption. So the only whistle they blew was a dog whistle to the stupid. And you heard it.

If impeachment proceeds there would be a trial in the Senate. You're right it is not in "court" but it is still a trial. If this person is completely anonymous with hearsay, then they are a worthless witness. I see nothing in the law that will prevent him/her from having to testify before the Senate if subpoenaed.

Dude, his account is credible and has been to shown to mirror the released transcript extensively. And you can call it a trial all you want, but that's not what it is currently. Different standards apply to sitting presidents for a number of reasons.

Of course it isn’t. It is just the attempt to remove a sitting president on the hearsay testimony of an anonymous person who has a political bias. Never mind their hearsay testimony does not match the reality of the event in question.
Just how stupid does this sound when you step back and take a look at the facts.....
