Impeachment Hearings: Schiff Launches Diatribe as Nunes Calls Process a ‘Sham’

All eyes — or many eyes — are on Capitol Hill today as the top lawmakers make their opening statements

Public hearings began in the House of Representatives on Wednesday morning, headed up by Rep. Adam Schiff (D-Calif.), the chairman.

The Dems had their props ready in the background as the hearings began.

The press, of course, was everywhere — and many members of the media had that lean and hungry look as the proceedings began.

Schiff, in his opening remarks, used Democrat talking points to allege the president asked for a quid pro quo in the Ukraine.

His timeline tried to change Democrat propaganda into fact.

He also covered for the Bidens with a forward defense of the Biden work with Burisma.

It’s interesting how the Dems, after decades of cozying up to communist Russia, are now anti-Russian.

Schiff is making up his own timeline — and using Dem allegations as fact.

GOP ranking member Devin Nunes (R-Calif.) (shown above) countered by calling the inquiry “a low-rent Ukrainian sequel” to the Russian hoax.

Nunes blasted the Democrats’ partisan witch hunt as “doing great damage to our country.”

He detailed how the entire process has been a one-sided “sham,” allowing the Dems to use the system to engage in an unethical probe into non-existent crimes.
