Chairman Nadler has no choice but to postpone Monday’s hearing in the wake of a last-minute document transmission that shows just how far Democrats have gone to pervert basic fairness. https://republicans-judiciary.house.gov/press-release/collins-demands-democrats-postpone-hearing-aft...

What do Chairman Nadler and House Democrats have in common with NBA officials? They only follow the rules when it is convenient for them. #MinorityHearingDay

The average American outside of D.C. understands due process.
 
They understand fairness.
 
They do not understand how Democrats are moving to impeach @realDonaldTrump over something Democrats infer he did.

Speaker Pelosi: "An impeachment is not a pleasant experience. It can be divisive. We don't take any glee in this at all."

Also Pelosi—hours later: "It's pretty exciting to have the role, to be here at this time."

The American people deserve to hear from witnesses who can provide context and transparency about the underlying facts in this “impeachment inquiry.” → https://republicans-judiciary.house.gov/press-release/collins-to-nadler-the-american-people-must-hea...

The minority hearing day must take place before the #JudiciaryCommittee considers articles of impeachment.

The demand has been made, and the rules are clear.

Today, the House is voting on a purely political bill that would prevent states and localities from running their own elections. #HR4 is a partisan power grab for the federal government.

This week, Chairman Nadler told me to provide him with my witness list. But Pelosi’s press conference seemed to indicate we’re moving straight to articles of impeachment. Judiciary has jurisdiction over articles of impeachment, but does the chairman even know what’s going on?

A minor child deserves privacy and should be kept out of politics. Pamela Karlan, you should be ashamed of your very angry and obviously biased public pandering, and using a child to do it.

Prof Turley: “It’s not enough to say, ‘I infer this was the purpose,’ ‘I infer that this is what was intended,’ when you’re not actually subpoenaing people with direct knowledge. 

“And, instead, you’re saying we must vote in this rocket-docket of an impeachment.”

The Democrats’ witnesses define impeachable conduct so broadly that Prof. Turley told @RepKenBuck, referring to a long list of past presidents’ actions, “I don’t see any exclusions under their definition.”

The framers created a standard that would not be endlessly fluid and flexible. That standard has kept us from impeachments despite periods in which we have really despised each other . . .  The most distressing thing for most of us today is there is so much more rage than reason.

Evidence too thin. Speed too fast. The People’s House should not abuse its power to overturn the votes of 63 million Americans.
