Today we are making history as we watch the first widely-televised public impeachment inquiry hearing into Donald Trump’s actions. Unfortunately, some of the president’s top Congressional soldiers decided to make a spectacle of this solemn day. They decided to perform for an audience of one: POTUS.
Congressional reporter for POLITICAL Kyle Cheney sat inside of the hearing room. He captured the graphics the Republicans left strewn about the room attacking both the heroic first whistelblower and House Intelligence chair and impeachment hearing point man Representative Adam Schiff (D-CA):
‘The Republican graphics show how they’re going to defend Trump’
The whistleblower remained secret as was consistent with precedent. The attacks against these two individuals, was right out of the U.S. president’s playbook.
Republicans in the hearing displayed propaganda posters that only intended to impugn the integrity of Schiff and the anonymous whistleblower whose complaint kicked off the impeachment hearings. One read:
’93 days since Adam Schiff learned the identity of the whistleblower.’
A second poster quoted the whistleblower’s attorney. He said in 2017 a “coup” had begun by government attorneys resisting what he considered:
‘[U]nlawful orders against the president.’
A third poster quoted Representative Al Green (D-TX):
‘[He was] concerned that if we don’t impeach this president, he will get reelected.’
The problem was that none of these quotes related to the charges against Donald Trump and the people who were extorting the new Ukrainian president Volodymyr Zelensky for POTUS own political wishes.
Twitter world went wild over this destructive behavior by some Republicans. Take a look at some of these favorites comments below:
