After months of being excluded from the closed-door “impeachment inquiry” of the House Intelligence, Oversight and Foreign Affairs committees –- hearing only the selective leaks, lies and talking points orchestrated by Adam Schiff –- Republicans finally grew spines and said “enough is enough!” On Wednesday, they marched through the halls of the Capitol Building and down, down, down the stairs to the secure room –- a SCIF, pronounced “skiff” –- where the secret hearings are being held, and (horrors!) walked right into the room, disrupting the planned testimony of Pentagon official Laura Cooper, the person who oversees matters pertaining to Ukraine and Russia. What fun it would have been to be touring the Capitol that day and see history in the making, as apparently nothing like this has ever happened before.

No, I don’t mean the Republicans growing spines, though that happens all too rarely. I mean the organized disruption of a secret meeting. And they didn’t “storm” the room, as many in the mainstream press have reported. They calmly entered, following the lead of Minority Whip Steve Scalise, and sat quietly. They didn’t do anything to block the testimony; Democrats simply wouldn’t proceed with them there. As for the charge that they brought cell phones and other electronic devices into a “secure” room, it should be noted that this hearing had been specified as non-classified. According to Scalise, Schiff looked around and realized they weren’t leaving, so “he took his witness and ran out of the room.”

The GOP legislators ordered in pizzas --- 17, to be exact --- as Schiff’s hearing was delayed for five hours. There were also two large bags of Chick-Fil-A. So at least for a while, the fetid stink of the swamp in that room was replaced with the smell of delicious pizza and chicken.

How dare the Republicans behave so inappropriately! This just isn’t done. Never mind that Congress trying to impeach a President of the United States in secret REALLY is not done. That’s certainly a first.

Once the drama subsided, Cooper testified for over three hours, and, yes, it was behind closed doors. As reported by FOX News, North Carolina Rep. Mark Meadows said there were conflicts between her testimony and that of William Taylor, the top U.S. diplomat in Ukraine, who appeared (also behind closed doors, of course) on Tuesday.

Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer called what Republicans did a “stunt.” “This stunt from House Republicans is designed to intimidate people from revealing the truth --- hardly the hallmark of a democracy. It’s outrageous --- but not surprising --- behavior.” Hey, if anyone is an expert on hiding the truth and working against democracy, it’s Schumer. And if anything is a stunt, it’s this whole sham “impeachment.”

As POLITICO reported, New Jersey Democrat Rep. Tom Malinowski dismissed the Republicans, saying, “It’s a bunch of Freedom Caucus members having pizza around a conference table pretending to be brave.” In truth, some were Freedom Caucus members, others were not, and the Freedom Caucus deserves high praise for not backing down over these months and recognizing the right of the American people to know what’s being done behind closed doors.

Apparently, the Judiciary Committee –- the one normally at the helm of any legitimate impeachment inquiry –- has been completely shut out, and we still don’t know why Speaker Nancy Pelosi sidelined Jerrold Nadler. (We do know that she must see advantages to having the Intel Committee run things, such as using its ability to hold classified hearings to shroud what they’re doing in secrecy.) Schiff is running this show now and he makes up his own rules as he goes along. There is no way to know if these hearings are being conducted with any fairness or any sense of accountability. But I think we might safely assume the worst.

Recall that yesterday, we looked at how Hillary Clinton wanted to run the Nixon impeachment hearings. Back then, the Judiciary Committee shut her down. She must look at what is happening now and rub her hands together with glee. Former independent prosecutor Ken Starr warned Wednesday in an interview with Shannon Bream that a “constitutional train wreck” is coming, but that it could still be avoided if Congress would follow the proper proceedings, with a real vote on the floor of Congress and hearings conducted in public. “I think this is quite evil and pernicious,” he said, “to have the battling narratives of what happened [behind] closed doors when there’s no classified information.”

Democrats say the Republicans were just taking (literal) marching orders from President Trump, but they say they did it because they are fed up. Some of them accused Republicans of doing this because they were scared after Bill Taylor’s Tuesday testimony and needed some distraction from that. But if you can get past the highly misleading MSM headlines, you’ll see that his testimony offered no evidence of the alleged quid pro quo (military aid in exchange for investigating the Bidens).  Obviously, they'd subpoenaed Taylor, the top U.S. diplomat in Ukraine, to testify because of texts he'd exchanged with two State Department officials, Kurt Volker and Gordon Sondland, in which he wrote, “As I said on the phone, I think it’s crazy to withhold security assistance for help with a political campaign.” Wow, the Democrats must have thought they’d hit the jackpot with that.

But they apparently hit a dry hole again (details below). It’s too bad we don’t have all the testimony, especially on video, because it would be fun to watch Adam Schiff trying with all his might to lead witnesses to say Trump tied military aid to targeting the Bidens. This would be entertaining stuff, the kind that goes down well with some delicious pizza.

    Many, many, years ago in a high school sociology class as an experience we formed a circle of about 6 or 7 students. The teacher then told a short story to the first student but did so without the others able to hear the story. Each student was to do the same to the next and so on. When it reached the last student they openly told the story they heard and then the teacher told us what he actually said to the first student. Guess what the last student's story was no where near the actual story. Welcome to the democratic impeachment process. Everything the President says seems to have a different meaning for the MSM vs. what he actually meant or said.

    I was proud of the Republicans standing up and speaking the truth of what was going on behind closed doors. There needs to be more of it. The only ones who are hiding anything or the Democrats and I think it’s going to come back and haunt them in 2020. I for one am fed up with all the shenanigans and the schoolyard antics. It’s embarrassing and I think we look like immature children to the rest of the world. The Democrats don’t have a viable candidate for president and their only hope is that they can impeach Trump and use that against him in the upcoming election because they’ve gotten nothing else.

    I tossed and turned last night over all this nonsense. Literally. The fact that ANY party would hide in secrecy from their constituents is appalling. IF the president did something wrong, show us. IF he did not, have the guts to admit it. WE THE PEOPLE deserve honesty and transparency by the persons we trusted to represent us. The past 2 years have been a waste of money and time. Nothing is getting done for the people and money is being spent on this waste that could have benefited the poor of our country. If I was ever to meet the president and our 1st lady, (or any other member of the Trump family) I would feel compelled to appologise to them for the unwarranted treatment they have received. I would Thank them, for having the fortitude to put up with the bias and hatred they certainly do not deserve.
    I would suggest our presidents staff look back to the highly biased treatment the NYT and others gave to Henry Ford as evidence they hate and spew hate and have done so for far too many years unchecked. I am sad for our country. We deserve far better than what the democrats and the media are serving.

    It's difficult when these tyrants control most of our country's communications; i.e. entertainment, schools, and propaganda "news". They are tightening the noose on the neck of freedom. The representatives are our voice and they need to have a spine for the fight ahead!

    It is about time and way over due that the Republicans, twenty of them, went into the behind closed doors to hear for themselves this coup and lies of Adam Schiff and others. The Republicans should have done this on day one. It should not have taken President Trump asking for Republicans to start standing up and supporting him. It has been two and half years of the President mainly being out front and on his own. My opinion is that at least the 63+ million voters who voted for the President have waited much too long for the Republicans to represent us and stand up to the Democrats and their evil agenda, whether its impeachment, socialism, lies and corruption, it all needs to be stood against and be outspoken about. I hope that yesterday won't be the one or few times that Republicans stand up against Schiff and his cronies and any other Democrats pushing this impeachment agenda and all the other agendas. The 2020 election is so vitally important and this is no time for the Republicans to let down their guard or taking a strong stand against the Democrats.

    I am at a loss to understand why our Republicans feel so weak when confronted by one of the Liberal, Crooked, Democrats of the house. It is time that we do a little house cleaning alright, not only should we rid ourselves of the vermin that call themselves The Democratic Majority, we should also rid ourselves of the spineless, lily livered cowards that are the Republican Minority, and start with a new crew. If our Republicans can't even stand up to the bad guys in the house, what will the be able to accomplish when it comes to standing up for us when it comes to fighting for important bills, or agendas? We have seen similar weakness during Obama reign of terror, when he just would get his pen and declare Executive privilege, and Not one Republican would take a stand either in the House or Congress and Point to Our Constitution to void his Pen!!! It is time that the Republicans stop relying on having a Majority for "STRENGTH" and start relying on being on the side of "RIGHT", don't wait to be invited in, just invite yourselves, and when you do, before they are able to scurry away like the rats they are, be prepared with all the ammunition you need, show them the House Rules and Regulations, regarding Impeachment proceedings, and point to where they must be out in the open, not behind closed doors. They are in the wrong, stop trying to tell them that, behind closed doors, call them out, in the "PUBLIC"
    Just because Nancy wants to do something and it is not legal, doesn't make it right, call her out!! and do it LOUDLY, and OFTEN!! Do it EVERYDAY, ALL DAY!! Don't let the crooks get by with this. If they do, it is on the House Republicans, just as much as the Liberal Democratic/Sociacialist!!

After months of being excluded from the closed-door “impeachment inquiry” of the House Intelligence, Oversight and Foreign Affairs committees –- hearing only the selective leaks, lies and talking points orchestrated by Adam Schiff –- Republicans finally grew spines and said “enough is enough!” On Wednesday, they marched through the halls of the Capitol Building and down, down, down the stairs to the secure room –- a SCIF, pronounced “skiff” –- where the secret hearings are being held, and (horrors!) walked right into the room, disrupting the planned testimony of Pentagon official Laura Cooper, the person who oversees matters pertaining to Ukraine and Russia. What fun it would have been to be touring the Capitol that day and see history in the making, as apparently nothing like this has ever happened before.

According to Scalise, Schiff looked around and realized they weren’t leaving, so “he took his witness and ran out of the room.”

The GOP legislators ordered in pizzas --- 17, to be exact --- as Schiff’s hearing was delayed for five hours. There were also two large bags of Chick-Fil-A. So at least for a while, the fetid stink of the swamp in that room was replaced with the smell of delicious pizza and chicken.

Yet another example of how they think they are above the law and we the people need to be put in our place , and be beholden to them scumbags! Screw them. May god save our republic.

    It's really entertaining to see how the Democrats put on a really good show with a really poor excuse. Chicken and pizza sounds really good to be entertained with such funny nonsense! God bless the Republicans food and a good show "life is great!"

    Why isn’t Schiff arrested for what he’s doing?

    Why didn’t the Republicans follow him to the room where he went with the witness!

    How can we stop this BS. There has to be another way other than Nov 8 2020.

    I am at a loss to understand why our Republicans feel so weak when confronted by one of the Liberal, Crooked, Democrats of the house. It is time that we do a little house cleaning alright, not only should we rid ourselves of the vermin that call themselves The Democratic Majority, we should also rid ourselves of the spineless, lily livered cowards that are the Republican Minority, and start with a new crew. If our Republicans can't even stand up to the bad guys in the house, what will the be able to accomplish when it comes to standing up for us when it comes to fighting for important bills, or agendas? We have seen similar weakness during Obama reign of terror, when he just would get his pen and declare Executive privilege, and Not one Republican would take a stand either in the House or Congress and Point to Our Constitution to void his Pen!!! It is time that the Republicans stop relying on having a Majority for "STRENGTH" and start relying on being on the side of "RIGHT", don't wait to be invited in, just invite yourselves, and when you do, before they are able to scurry away like the rats they are, be prepared with all the ammunition you need, show them the House Rules and Regulations, regarding Impeachment proceedings, and point to where they must be out in the open, not behind closed doors. They are in the wrong, stop trying to tell them that, behind closed doors, call them out, in the "PUBLIC"
    Just because Nancy wants to do something and it is not legal, doesn't make it right, call her out!! and do it LOUDLY, and OFTEN!! Do it EVERYDAY, ALL DAY!! Don't let the crooks get by with this. If they do, it is on the House Republicans, just as much as the Liberal Democratic/Sociacialist!!

    Trump is the real whistleblower and the communist Enemedia and Democrats don’t care bit because it exposes the truth about their corruption and projection on others!
