Adam Schiff's Grand Jury

Every rule that the American people associate with a fair legal process is being violated.

The fake impeachment process continues. There were depositions taken Monday and more scheduled this week. But because these proceedings are being managed like a grand jury and in secret, nothing is being released to the public. Yet, somehow The New York Times is still running stories with all kinds of details from the proceedings that are damaging to the president.

Every rule that the American people associate with a fair legal process is being violated.

  • The president has not been allowed to confront his accusers.

  • His words have been deliberately distorted by sitting members of Congress.

  • People who could never serve on a jury because of their bias against the defendant are the ones conducting this proceeding.

  • And it’s being conducted by the wrong committee — Adam Schiff’s Intelligence Committee is taking the lead rather than Jerry Nadler’s Judiciary Committee.

Monday, Rep. Matt Gaetz, a Republican member of the Judiciary Committee, showed up for the deposition of Fiona Hill, a former member of the National Security Council. He was kicked out of the room and not permitted to participate or even observe Hill’s questioning.

Here’s my recommendation: The next time Schiff’s Star Chamber meets, all 17 Republicans on the House Judiciary Committee should show up and dare the Democrat staff to block them all.

By the way, Rep. Rashida Tlaib says that House Democrats are now debating about how they can arrest Trump cabinet members. “So they’re trying to figure out, no joke, is it the DC police that goes and gets them? We don’t know. Where do we hold them?” Tlaib said at a recent town-hall meeting.

Not surprisingly, left-wing law professors are encouraging Democrats to follow through on their threats to arrest the president’s defenders.
