I mean if you want a solid example of the Democrat-media complex at work with these Trump-Ukraine impeachment hearings, look no further than the majority counsel for the Democrats on the House Intelligence Committee. Right now, Deputy Assistant Secretary for European and Eurasian Affairs George Kent and U.S. Chargé d'Affaires for Ukraine Bill Taylor are testifying before a kangaroo court that aims to reverse the results of the 2016 election. So, it is well that a former MSNBC contributor, Daniel Goldman, was tapped by Rep. Adam Schiff (D-CA), the chairman of the committee, to be another key person in this absurd effort.

Goldman has peddled Russian collusion tin foil hat nonsense in his previous appearances on the network, so I mean this is a match made I heaven. Now, he’s working with House Democrats in trying to remove Trump

It really is MSDNC. Sean Davis at The Federalist wrote about this in October when the impeachment proceedings were in the bunker in total secrecy This is a partisan witch hunt and it goes without saying, you shouldn’t believe a single word from Schiff’s mouth:

A former MSNBC contributor was tapped by Rep. Adam Schiff, D-Calif., to question Ukraine envoy Kurt Volker during a congressional hearing …officials with direct knowledge of the proceedings told The Federalist. Daniel Goldman, a former legal analyst for MSNBC, posed multiple questions to Volker during Thursday’s closed-door interview…

Payroll records from the U.S. House of Representatives show that Schiff hired Goldman in January of 2019. News reports from last March indicate that Schiff named Goldman as the director of investigations for the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence (HPSCI). Schiff has used his perch as chairman of that committee to investigate and spread debunked conspiracy theories, such as Russian collusion, about President Donald Trump. Former special counsel Robert Mueller confirmed earlier this year that his investigation found zero evidence of treasonous collusion between the Russian government and the Trump campaign to steal the 2016 election from former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton.

“How can the American people trust that this impeachment process is fair if MSNBC and Adam Schiff are running the show behind the scenes?” a congressional official with direct knowledge of Thursday’s hearing told The Federalist. “This partisan mockery cannot be ignored. Schiff should be ashamed.”

[…]

Last December, Goldman endorsed discredited conspiracy theories from Christopher Steele, a former British spy who was funded by the Clinton campaign and the Democratic National Committee to work with foreign governments to spread dirt about Trump in order to influence voters in the 2016 presidential elections. In December, Goldman claimed that a debunked allegation that former Trump attorney Michael Cohen had traveled to Prague in August of 2016 to secretly plot with Kremlin officials had been corroborated. He also claimed, long after the Steele dossier had been debunked, that “nothing had been undermined” in the dossier.

In his 448-page report detailing the findings of his sprawling, multi-year investigation of Russian collusion allegations, Mueller explicitly debunked the notion that Cohen traveled to Prague.

“Cohen had never traveled to Prague,” the report declared.

And the person who started this whole show, the so-called whistleblower, is a reported CIA agent, registered Democrat, had worked with a 2020 Democratic candidate and was a National Security Council staffer in the Obama White House. As the publication added, and it's been noted elsewhere, this person was in contact with Schiff’s staff prior to his complaint being formally filed. There’s nothing suspicious here at all, right?
