This weekend, Fox News obtained a letter sent by House Intelligence Committee Ranking Member Devin Nunes (R-CA) to his colleague, Committee Chairman Adam Schiff (D-CA). In the letter, Nunes rips Schiff for an “alarming” breach of the rules process and accuses him of sending the final Intel Committee impeachment report to the House Judiciary Committee without allowing him to consult on the findings.
“I write in objection to your December 6, 2019 transfer of additional records and other materials relating to the Democrats’ partisan impeachment inquiry to the House Committee on the Judiciary,” Nunes wrote. “As the Ranking Member of the House Intelligence Committee, I received no consultation prior to the transfer of materials, in violation of H. Res. 660. Accordingly, I expect that you immediately provide me a full accounting of documents that were provided to the Committee on the Judiciary.”
Nunes continued: “Your consistent and blatant disregard for the rules is alarming. I can see no reason for you to continue to ignore these rules, which the Democratic majority put in place, other than to meet a bogus deadline of impeaching the President by Christmas.
“I urge you to put an immediate end to your vendetta against the President, stop your constant rule breaking, and begin treating this Committee and its oversight responsibilities with the seriousness they deserve,” Nunes concluded.
Boy, if Adam Schiff were capable of feeling shame, he would have to hide his face for a week after that dressing-down. Unfortunately, as we know, he is a partisan hack who doesn’t care one whit for the “rules,” be they the ones that govern impeachment or the ones that pertain to the House Intelligence Committee. Nunes said it himself: This is all about pursuing a vendetta against Trump and proving to the libs back in California that he’s an essential warrior for The Resistance.
Oh, and we’re sure there will be a book deal in it for him as well.
That so many Democrat voters are willing to support this sham is a dismaying sign on multiple fronts. For one thing, it shows you how much sway the mainstream media still has over a certain percentage of the public, despite being exposed time and again for their abject bias. It also shows you how eager the left is to ignore the truth if it means getting what they want: Trump out of the White House.
We remain confident that Democrats will get their comeuppance on Election Day, 2020, but that doesn’t change the fact that they’re going to do a whole lot of damage to the country in the meantime. And unfortunately, the main perpetrators – the Schiffs, the Pelosis, and the Nadlers – are politically bulletproof as far as their reelections are concerned. They may lose the majority, but they won’t lose their seats. Too bad, because America deserves (much) better.
