Nunes Demands Schiff Testify After Lying; Also Wants Whistleblower And Hunter Biden To Appear

Rep. Devin Nunes (R-CA) made a formal request that House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff (D-CA) testify in a closed-door session as part of the impeachment inquiry against President Trump.

“Prior to the start of your public show trial next week, at least one additional closed-door deposition must take place,” reads a Friday letter from Nunes to Schiff.

“As the American public is now aware, in August 2019 you and/or your staff met with or talked to the whistleblower who raised an issue with President Trump’s phone call with Ukrainian President Zelensky. Although you publicly claim nothing inappropriate was discussed, the three committees deserve to hear directly from you the substance and circumstances surrounding any discussions conducted with the whistleblower, and any instructions you issued regarding those discussions.

Given that you have reneged on your public commitment to let the committees interview the whistleblower directly, you are the only individual who can provide clarity as to these conversations,” the letter reads.

Schiff lied about his office’s contacts with the whistleblower – initially claiming “We have not spoken directly with the whistleblower,” when in fact the whistleblower, now known as CIA officer Eric Ciaramella, reached out to a committee aide who directed him to Democratic attorney Mark Zaid (who proudly obtained government security clearances for pedophiles and enjoys walking around children’s theme parks alone).

That said, Schiff maintains he hasn’t personally spoken with Ciaramella, and that his committee was only given vague information as to the nature of the complaint.

Republicans, meanwhile, are gearing up for the public hearings by assembling a list of proposed witnesses – although Democrats have the final say over who can appear.

Nunes’ and Republicans’ effort to devise a strategy going forward comes after the House approved rules for the impeachment inquiry process last week. While Republicans opposed the resolution and complained the rules were unfair, Democrats still gave GOP lawmakers the ability to subpoena witnesses with the concurrence of Democratic committee chairs. If the chair does not consent, the minority can appeal to the full committee.

This process still gives Democrats final say over witnesses. A GOP source told Fox News this week that it’s unlikely Democrats would go along with the efforts to call Schiff — who is essentially leading the impeachment probe. –Fox News

On Saturday, Nunes wrote another letter to Schiff with a list of witnesses the GOP would like to call, including Joe Biden’s son Hunter and Ciaramella.

“Americans see through this sham impeachment process, despite the Democrats’ efforts to retroactively legitimize it last week,” wrote Nunes. “To provide transparency to your otherwise opaque and unfair process, and after consultation with [House Oversight Committee] Ranking Member Jim Jordan and [House Foreign Affairs Committee] Ranking Member Michael McCaul, the American people deserve to hear from the following witnesses in an open setting.”

While requesting testimony from the whistleblower, Nunes wrote that “Trump should be afforded an opportunity to confront his accusers,” particularly over what he claims are “discrepancies” between the whistleblower’s complaint and witnesses’ closed-door testimony.

It is imperative that the American people hear definitively how the whistleblower developed his or her information, and who else the whistleblower may have fed the information he or she gathered and how that treatment of classified information may have led to the false narrative being perpetrated by the Democrats during this process,” Nunes wrote.

In addition to the anonymous whistleblower, whose complaint about Trump’s July 25 call with Ukraine is at the center of the impeachment inquiry, Republicans also plan to call Hunter Biden’s former business partner, Devon Archer.

Hunter Biden worked on the board of a natural gas company owned by a Ukrainian oligarch while his father served as vice president. Joe Biden pushed in 2016 for the dismissal of a Ukrainian prosecutor who had been accused of overlooking corruption in his own office, threatening to withhold money if the prosecutor was not fired. –The Hill

Last Sunday on CBS‘ “Face the Nation,” House GOP leader Kevin McCarthy (R-CA) said that Schiff is the “fist person” who should be brought in, along with his staff.

“Come to the Judiciary Committee” said Collins, following the passage of Democrats’ impeachment guidelines. “Be the first witness and take every question asked of you. Starting with your own involvement [with] the whistleblower.”

  1. No es posible que en Estados Unidos de América estos abusadores se salgan con la suya. Es tiempo de sobra de que todos estén presos, como lo esta Manafort.

    1. YOU ARE ABSOLUTLY RIGHT ABOUT SHIFFY SHIFF AND NAZI PELOSI.NANCY PELOSI AND MAXINE WATERS BOTH GO HOME AND CLEAN UP YOUR STATE. THEY BOTH ARE TWO FACE LIARS. THERE A DISGRACE TO OUR COUNTRY. ANYBODY VOTES FOR DEMORATS ARE INSANE. OUR PRESIDENT HASNT DONE ONE WRONG THING BUT TO KEE P AMERICA GREAT.

YOU AND YOUR PARTY ARE NOT ABOVE THE LAW.SO GET OVER THAT HILLERY LOST AND PRESIDENT TRUMP WON.

      1. You are so right , what makes anyone think Schiff will tell the truth even if he is under oath. He does not know how to tell the truth and he does not get out in jail for lying. HE IS NOT ABOVE THE LAW – HE NEEDS PUNISHED.

  2. HEY CONGRESSMAN NUNES, time to go after SCH – – T NOW WITH THE LOGAN ACT FOR TREASON. ALSO ADD PELOSI FOR THE BOTH OF THEM GOING TO JORDAN TO ENCOURAGE THE KING OF JORDAN TO DISAVOW TRUMP ON HIS FOREIGN POLICY’S IN THE MIDDLE EAST! ONLY THE EXECETIVE DAPT HAS CONTROL OF FOREIGN AFFAIRS!

  3. It should be obvious to anyone by now, that the dems are willing to lie and fabricate anything to attack the legally elected President. They were convinced that only Hitlerey could win, and even on election night as it was starting to become clear Trump would win, they started their attempts to impeach.
    Each of them should have investigators go through everything in their lives the way they have done to Trump and his family. I am sure those investigations would reveal a great deal of wrong doing, but that is quite possibly also why they are after Trump so strongly, his vow to clean out the swamp, and they are a big part if the filth thar floats on top

    1. The investigations should start with Swamp Queen Pelosi, liar Adam Schiff, Chuck “The Schmuck” Schumer, Mad Max Waters and a few more Dems. The career politicians that the Dems have in Congress are the most corrupt.

      1. Time to haul their assessment to court and jail them try them and dispose of the the same way.trators should be dealt with, with a firing squad.

  4. I’ll repeatedly say it sternly

    1. Don’t forget your law breaking, treasonous action, liers that your supporting that are still collecting Government pay checks. You think your “boys” can look at themselves in a mirror and truthfully say that they honestly earned their pay for the month? They “key” word there was honestly. Your “boys” don’t really have a good track record of being honest about anything, like, “I and my office never talked to the whistler before the complaint was formal”. How about, “I never did a quid par Quo to get that prosecutor to back off the company my son worked for or to have him fired.” Yep, just doing their jobs. My job used to be to kill, mutilate and destroy, should I go back to doing a job I was good at so you can say I was just doing my job? You Liberals really make me laugh, PLEASE start your own Sunday paper comic section so we can all see the real name of the idiot writers to give full credit to.

  5. The American people want all the lying Democrat’s to get up on the stand under oath. Not they will tell the truth, but it will be on record all their lies. It’s not Trump that should be impeached, it’s all of the House. They have wasted millions of dollars that belong to taxpayers while we have America Vets and citizens lacking food, Medication and proper housing to protect them from the winter weather. Their crime’s of allowing our boarders to be flooded while we can’t even take care of our own citizens, our roads, bridges, waterways and proper maintenance in our forest to help with fires. The Democrat’s have been working for years to keep American citizens in proverty, trying to eliminate middle class and the 1% who could provide jobs for us all. Just like the Nazi take over in Germany. Don’t let them fool you. Once you allow the socialist Democrats to have a complete takeover your life is going to change dramatically for the worst. do your research in these socialist countries, the people are not doing that great, the people are starving. Why do you think they want to come here? America has the highest legal immigration rate on this planet.

  6. Dr. Embry. thank you for your very clear statement about “shit for brains schiff, and the evil bitch n. pelosi.
    Couldn’t have said it better myself!!!

  7. Dr. Embry, thank you for your very clear and truthful statements about “shit for brains lying schiff, and the evil, lying bitch, n. pelosi.
    Couldn’t have said it better myself!

  8. This entire issue is proof that we AMERICAN CITIZENS need to push all senators and representatives to end lucrative political careers. End all government paid golden parachute retirements. Impose strict term limits on all elected and appointed politicians and executives. Only then will be be able to take back our country and our government. All politicians who oppose this ideal prove that they are no longer serving the people, but rather serving themselves and their special interest groups.
