During the fourth public impeachment inquiry hearing Wednesday morning on Capitol Hill, House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff issued another impeachment threat against President Trump and Secretary of State Mike Pompeo.
"We can see why Secretary Pompeo and President Trump have made such a concerted and across the board effort to obstruct this investigation and this impeachment inquiry and I will just say this, they do so at their own peril. I remind the President that Article III of the impeachment articles drafted against President Nixon was his refusal to obey the subpoenas of Congress," Schiff said.
"The statement from Schiff came after Ambassador Sondland accused the State Department of withholding documents requested by his attorneys.
During a break in Wednesday's testimony, Schiff ran to the cameras to reiterate President Trump committed bribery and is obstructing Congress. It's clear he will be filing official articles of impeachment once the "inquiry" is done.

“The veneer has been torn away.”
He says now he sees why Pompeo and Trump are blocking docs from Congress.
