Report: Republicans on Intelligence Committee
Can Review Transcripts — with a Democrat
Staffer Watching

Original Article

Posted By: ladydawgfan, 10/25/2019 11:14:27 PM

Republicans on the House Intelligence Committee will only be able to read transcripts of depositions in the “impeachment inquiry” with a Democrat staffer watching them. In addition, there will only be one copy of each transcript available. No further printed or electronic versions will be provided. Those are the rules under which Rep. Adam Schiff (D-CA), the committee chair, is proceeding, according to Kimberly Strassel of the Wall Street Journal, who interviewed committee member Rep. Elaine Stefanik (R-NY): Rep. Elise Stefanik was informed this week by Republican House Intelligence Committee staffers of a new diktat from Chairman Adam Schiff. It made the New York Republican’s jaw drop.

That picture of Schiff-for-brains makes him look like the Grinch, except that it's his BRAIN that's two sizes too small!!

47 Republicans in the House on the committees leading the investigation have access to the closed-door depositions, so it’s not exactly “secret”

Those 47 or whatever number Republicans may have access but what difference does it make if they can't publicly talk about it under Shifty's edict and punishment. The whole point is that it should be PUBLIC, not SECRET. We already know how the Politburo works. For once we'd like to see how House of Reps works when Piglousi follows normal and routine House rules.

What would happen if, say, a big burly GOP member (ie, Jim Jordan) just took the transcript and walked out of the room with it? Would the Democrat staffer/flunky physically restrain a member of Congress? And live?

What's most remarkable is that these Democrats actually seem to think they can hide and coverup their crimes and treasons.

I actually think this is worde than the current situation. They are treating HOuse members as if they were children. THe Rebublicans should go in there, take ictures and tell the staffer to go pound sand. These representatives, whether we like them or not, represent us. And we ned representation in this process, not tyrannical treatment by Democrats.

Democrats can only get away with this because Republicans allow it. I'm all for them storming the meetings, but Republicans need to go Donald Trump on them.

President Donald Trump’s campaign team, along with conservatives across social media, trolled twice-failed presidential candidate Hillary Clinton on her 72nd birthday, reminding her of the 2016 tweet which featured a photo of Clinton as a little girl accompanied by the caption, “Happy Birthday to this future president.” Clinton, who is rumored to be mulling a 2020 bid, celebrated her 72nd birthday on Saturday, October 26. Many on social media offered their warm regards, albeit with a dose of mockery, reminding Clinton of the birthday message she tweeted to herself ahead of the 2016 election. “Happy birthday to this future president,” the 2016 tweet read: [tweet]

Some people put on their best black garments for the funeral of someone considered, by his friends at least, to be an honored dignitary. Hillary Clinton's a little different. She put on her best black accent -- and uses it to spew bile. Here's the weird specter from yesterday's funeral of the late Rep. Elijah Cummings: [video] The failed presidential candidate dropped the hard-edged corporate accent and got the cadence going with this one. "He weathered storms and earthquakes, but never lost his faith. Like that Old Testament prophet, he stood against the corrupt leadership of King Ahab and Queen Jezebel."

Freshman Democratic Rep. Katie Hill, who sits on a House committee trying to impeach President Trump, and has been called House Speaker Nancy Pelosi's "new favorite," has been in office less than a year and already we know too much about her. It's not merely the naked pictures, actually, though yes, one wonders why someone like her would stand there buck naked and maybe ask for someone to take a snap to share that precious memory. It's that she's an exploiter. And with an emerging pattern of that coming into play, nobody in the all-Democrat feminist industrial complex is saying a thing.

Something called the "K–12 Math Ethnic Studies Framework," created by a Seattle Public Schools "Ethnic Studies Advisory Committee," is intended to instruct students that math is intimately connected to racial oppression. Students will be taught "how technology and/or science have been and continues [sic] to be used to oppress and marginalize people and communities of color." The framework, the final draft of which is scheduled to be completed by September 2020, will also attempt to "explain how math dictates economic oppression." That's correct: math.

Another shoe dropped this week and it ain’t looking good for the Mueller legacy. General Michael Flynn’s lawyer, the Honey Badger Sidney Powell, filed on Wednesday (23 October) a formal request that Judge Sullivan order the publication of Flynn’s Reply to the Government’s Opposition to the Motion to Compel. To briefly recap–Sidney Powell filed a motion (see my piece about Michael Flynn’s motion to compel production of Brady material).

About two dozen frustrated House Republicans on Wednesday stormed the secret room where House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff (D-CA) has been running the closed-door impeachment inquiry. Led by House Judiciary Committee member Rep. Matt Gaetz (R-FL), the Republican lawmakers attempted to enter the room where Schiff has been bringing in current and former State Department officials to testify on whether President Trump withheld military aid from Ukraine in exchange for alleged help with the 2020 election. A senior Pentagon official working on Ukraine, Laura Cooper, was scheduled to testify, but due restrictions set by House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) and Schiff, members of the Armed Services Committee

The Big Fake News today is that Ukraine’s top diplomat, William Taylor, delivered a smoking gun to Rep. Adam Schiff’s (D-CA) secret impeachment hearings. That is not hyperbole, those are the headlines — “smoking gun.” So here we are again with Russian Collusion 2 in full swing, with the WALLS CLOSING IN ON TRUMP, and all of it backed by a coordinated news cycle about how President Trump is toast, done, over and out, corrupt and kaput fer realzies this time. Except… Once again, it’s all fake news (but you knew that). Even though Schiff’s secret impeachment inquiry is supposed to be secret,

Joe Biden has come under fire his double standard after he lambasted Donald Trump as 'despicable' for comparing the impeachment inquiry to 'a lynching', when he made the same comparison himself in a resurfaced 1998 interview in defense of Bill Clinton. On Tuesday Trump took to Twitter to call slam the inquiry into his presidency as 'a lynching'. 'So some day, if a Democrat becomes President and the Republicans win the House, even by a tiny margin, they can impeach the President, without due process or fairness or any legal rights. All Republicans must remember what they are witnessing here - a lynching. But we will WIN!' he tweeted.

Rock legend Bruce Springsteen took aim at President Trump in a new interview Friday, saying the president doesn't "grasp" the meaning of being an American. In an interview on "CBS This Morning," host Gayle King asked Springsteen about a recent Trump rally in which the president bragged that his election victory in 2016 was accomplished without the support of celebrities like Springsteen, Beyoncé and Jay-Z. "You surprised that he's trash-talking you after all this time?" King asked. "Not really. Anything's possible," the New Jersey musician responded. King noted that "a lot of people are very concerned about the direction of the country," with Springsteen agreeing that it's a "very frightening time" in America.

On Friday during Rep.

Clinton was comparing Cummings to his namesake, the Biblical prophet Elijah, who stood up against wicked King Ahab and Queen Jezebel. Clinton said, “Like the prophet, our Elijah could call down fire from heaven — but he also prayed and worked for healing.” She added, “Like that Old Testament prophet, he stood against corrupt leadership of King Ahab and Queen Jezebel.” The crowd roared in acknowledgment.

But I’m serious.” Maher then agreed with Representative Justin Amash’s (I-MI) assessment that Hillary is a “Trump asset” and added, “Bill is damaged goods. I just think they’ve got to go away.”

No, not “buy the book,” which I’ve been trying to get people to do since Ball of Collusion was published a few weeks back. I’m talking about by the book. That was the memorable phrase Obama national-security adviser Susan Rice emphasized in her notorious CYA memo. Remember? The memo took the form of an email. She wrote it while clearing out of her White House office while Donald Trump was being inaugurated. It purported to summarize a meeting more than two weeks earlier, when President Obama held an Oval Office pow-wow on Ukraine
