Here We Go: Public Impeachment Inquiry Hearings to Kick Off This Week

The first public hearings of the Democrats' "impeachment inquiry" are scheduled for this week and will start in front of the House Intelligence Committee Wednesday morning


Two weeks ago Democrats laid out the rules, which put Chairman Adam Schiff in charge of calling hearings, determining who testifies, how long question and answer sessions will be, whether attorneys can be present, etc. 

Over the weekend Republican lawmakers on the Committee officially submitted their witness requests, which includes the Ukraine call "whistleblower" and Hunter Biden. Schiff has rejected both. Other witness requests under consideration are Fusion GPS' Nellie Ohr, David Jale, and Burimsa board member Devon Archer. 

"As we move to open hearings, it is important to underscore that the impeachment inquiry, and the Committee, will not serve as vehicles for any Member to carry out the same sham investigations into the Bidens or debunked conspiracies about 2016 U.S. election interence that President Trump pressed Ukraine to conduct for his personal political benefit," a letter from Schiff to Ranking Intelligence Committee Member Devin Nunes states. "The Committee also will not facilitate efforts by President Trump and his allies in Congress to threaten, intimidate, and retaliate against the whistleblower who courageously raised the initial alarm."


Republicans have officially requested Schiff testify in a closed door hearing as part of the inquiry. There are serious questions about his relationship with the "whistleblower" and why Schiff hid the official whistleblower complaint from fellow Committee members for nearly a month. 

As a reminder, Schiff has a long history of leaking out-of-context and selective information from closed hearings. He's also infamous for making false statements on national television. A reminder:


It's the Schiff show and we'll be covering it all.

Meanwhile, President Trump continues to call Schiff's fishing expedition a "sham."
