First Public Impeachment Hearing Backfires on Rep Schiff

Will this presidential election be the most important in American history?

The House Intelligence Committee kicked off its first public impeachment inquiry hearing yesterday and it backfired on the Democrats.

Now it’s understandable why Intelligence Committee Chairman Representative Adam Schiff (D-CA) held prior hearings in secret.

Democrats want to use the testimony to build their impeachment case against President Trump in an attempt to prove the president abused his power by withholding military aid in exchange for Ukraine to investigate former Vice President Joe Biden and his son Hunter.

The top U.S. diplomat in Ukraine Bill Taylor and high-level State Department official George Kent testified at the hearing.

Representative Jim Jordan (R-OH) exposed the weak nature of Taylor’s testimony regarding a quid pro quo over aid to Ukraine.

Kent acknowledged the Ukrainian natural gas company Burisma Holdings has corruption issues and should be investigated.

Before the hearing, Schiff put Republicans on notice the hearing will be solely focused on President Trump and Ukraine and not on former Vice President Joe Biden and his son Hunter or on Ukraine’s possible role in interfering in the 2016 election.

A CNN legal analyst also noted the Democrats ‘witnesses’ didn’t have direct contact with President Trump.

In his closing statement, Schiff repeated his claim that he does not know who the whistleblower is.

Just like the Mueller testimony, the first public impeachment inquiry hearing backfired on the Democrats.
