In the midst of Donald Trump Jr. outing the original whistleblower who testified before the impeachment inquiry, the Democrats remained on target. House Intelligence Chair Adam Schiff (D-CA) has been the lead for Donald Trump’s impeachment inquiry, which generates thousands of pages of testimony. Wednesday morning the Democrat made a surprising announcement.
All the president’s men blew past their subpoenas and requests and did not even bother to show. Even so, Schiff ignored the clown circus and tweeted the schedule for next week. He explained that this coming Wednesday, November 13, 2019 the impeachment inquiry would hold it’s first open hearings.
Acting Ambassador to Ukraine William Taylor and Deputy Assistant Secretary of State George Kent will testify on Wednesday November 13, 2019. Then, on Friday November 15, 2019 former Ukrainian career ambassador Marie (Masha) Yovanovitch will also testify before the House Intelligence Committee:
‘Next week, the House Intelligence Committee will hold its first open hearings as part of the impeachment inquiry. On Wednesday, November 13, 2019, we will hear from William Taylor and George Kent. On Friday, November 15, 2019, we will hear from Marie Yovanovitch. More to come.’
According to NPR, Schiff said these upcoming hearings:
‘[W]ill be an opportunity for the American people to evaluate the witnesses for themselves to learn firsthand about the facts of the president’s misconduct.’
Former vice president and current 2020 presidential candidate Joe Biden said closed-door testimony has shown thus far:
‘[T]he degree to which the President enlisted whole departments of government in the illicit aim of trying to get Ukraine to dig up dirt on a political opponent.’
Twitter world caught fire. These responses are very interesting.
