Impeachment Scam
Rep. Devin Nunes claims that House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff was coaching Lieutenant Colonel Alexander Vindman, the director of European affairs at the National Security Council (NSC), as he told House committees that he "did not think it was proper" for President Trump to ask Ukrainian President Volodomyr Zelensky to investigate former VP Joe Biden during a July 25 phone call.

"I have never in my life seen anything like what happened today, during the testimony of Lt. Col. Alexander Vindman," Nunes told Fox News' "Hannity."
"It was unprecedented," Nunes continued. "I mean, they’ve been bad at most of these depositions, but to interrupt us continually to coach the witness, to decide… what we’re going to be able to ask the witness."

"And, to see someone coach a witness, this isn’t the first time that Schiff — Schiff is very good at coaching witnesses."

"When we asked [Vindman] who he spoke to after important events in July — Adam Schiff says, ‘no, no, no, we’re not going to let him answer that question," said Rep.

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) on Wednesday slammed an impeachment resolution brought by House Democrats the day before - using a floor speech to go after House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff.

McConnell said that the resolution would deprive President Trump of the "most basic rights of due process."
"It falls way short, way short...Instead of setting a high bar House Democrats seem determined to set a new low," he said, before accusing Pelosi of endorsing a "bizarre" process which makes Schiff "a defacto special prosecutor."

The resolution, set for a Thursday vote, gives Schiff's committee more power than it has ever had in the past - as prior impeachments have been conducted through the House Judiciary Committee. The new resolution engages the House's Intelligence, Foreign Affairs, Oversight and Ways and Means Committees to independently conduct their own impeachment inquiries in a full court press.
The resolution also allows Republicans to subpoena witnesses and documents subject to Democrats' approval. It will also allow Schiff to control the release of transcripts, including ones that have been edited.
McConnell on Wednesday said that the resolution denies Trump "basic due process rights," such as having his attorney participate in closed-door depositions.
