Rep. Adam Schiff (D-CA) is completely shellshocked. President Trump just destroyed the powerful committee chairman — he never saw this coming.
According to a major report, at least four Trump Administration officials will not show up for testimony as part of the Democrats’ impeachment witch-hunt — despite being subpoenaed to appear before lawmakers.
The Washington Times noted that the individuals are: “National Security Council Lawyers John Eisenberg and Michael Ellis, acting Chief of Staff Mick Mulvaney’s aide Robert Blair and Office of Management and Budget official Brian McCormack.”
Democrats will argue that witnesses refusing to participate will only help to bring a stronger case against Trump, however, the opposite is likely true. As Trump said, “There is no reason to call witnesses to analyze my words and meaning.”
Ultimately, this impeachment push is a clear farce. First, Democrats held over a month of secret, closed-door meetings — Republicans could not bring forth witnesses and, in some cases, were even barred from the room.
Schiff also refused to release transcripts of these meetings until just recently, which gave him too much time to potentially doctor them up. Now we’re supposed to take this seriously because they finally had one vote? Absurd.
