On National Pearl Harbor Remembrance Day, we solemnly reflect on the tragic events of December 7, 1941, and honor those who perished while defending our Nation. http://45.wh.gov/6S2oWm
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 @Donald J. Trump over something Democrats infer he did.
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.
. @Congressman Greg Steube: "On the very first day of my swearing in, a Democrat in my class called for the impeachment of the president on Day 1 using much more colorful language than I would ever use."
. @Congressman Kelly Armstrong: “In order for this whole thing to stick, we have to believe that President Zelensky is a pathological liar.”
. @Rep. Guy Reschenthaler: “I think we can all agree it is appropriate for the president, as a steward of taxpayer dollars, to ensure our money isn’t wasted.”
. @Congressman Ben Cline: "We haven’t seen the evidence from the Intelligence Committee yet. “We’ve asked for it. “We haven’t received it. “We haven’t heard from any fact witnesses yet before we get to hear from these constitutional scholars."
. @Congresswoman Debbie Lesko: “You and House Democrat leadership are tearing apart the country. "You said the evidence needs to be clear. It is not. "You said offenses need to be grave. They are not.“
. @Tom McClintock: “This impeachment inquiry has been predicated on some rather disturbing legal doctrines. . . . Speaker Pelosi and others have said that the president’s responsibility is to present evidence to prove his innocence.”
. @Rep Andy Biggs: “You’re not fact witnesses. You’re supposed to be talking about what the law is, but you came in with a preconceived notion and bias.”
. @Rep. Martha Roby: “We have been given no indication that this committee will conduct substantive hearings with fact witnesses. . . I can say that the process in which we are participating is insufficient, unprecedented, & grossly inadequate.”
“We need some factual witnesses. We do not need to receive a report that we don't have a chance to read before this hearing. We need a chance to bring in actual fact witnesses.” #ImpeachmentHearing
. @Rep. Mike Johnson: “The greatest danger of this fraudulent impeachment production is not what happens this afternoon or by Christmas or in the election next fall. The greatest danger is what this will do, in the days ahead, to our 243-year experiment in self-governance.”
The Democrats’ witnesses define impeachable conduct so broadly that Prof. Turley told @Congressman Ken Buck, referring to a long list of past presidents’ actions, “I don’t see any exclusions under their definition.”
. @John Ratcliffe: “If I were to summarize your testimony: No bribery, no extortion, no obstruction of justice, no abuse of power, is that fair?” Prof. Turley: “Not on this record.”
. @Rep. Jim Jordan: “Four key facts will not change, have not changed, will never change. We have the transcript. There was no quid pro quo in the transcript.”
. @Rep. Steve Chabot: “It would seem—since Schiff, for example, misled the American people on multiple occasions—common sense and basic fairness would call for Chairman Schiff to be questioned on those things, but we can’t.”
“It is an awesome and very grave responsibility. And it is not one which should be done lightly. It is not one which should be done quickly. It is not one without examining all of the evidence.” @Sensenbrenner Press would know . . .
