Rep. Devin Nunes slammed House Intelligence CMTE chairman Adam Schiff and the Democrats for giving themselves extra time to question witnesses during today’s hearing.
After a 15 minute questioning by Adam Schiff and Democratic counsel Daniel Goldman, Devin Nunes inquired whether committee Republicans should “expect anymore of these magical 15 minute motions.”
Schiff pointed to House Resolution 660 to justify the longer time spent questioning the witnesses, a rule that according to him allows for “successive rounds of up to 45 minutes, so this is part of the prescribed procedure under the House resolution.”
Rep. Devin Nunes argued that by using this rule, the Democrats illustrated “how out of control this process has become.”
Nunes didn’t stop there and added that the Democrats should have had “the decency to tell us that you are going to have 15 minutes more.”
Then he turned his attention towards House Intelligence CMTE chairman Addam Schiff.
“You can go four hours, we can go five hours, we’ll give you all you want, you can keep digging if you want, the deeper the hole you dig, I think the more viewers will turn off, because people just aren’t buying the drug deal that you guys are trying to sell,” Nunes told Schiff.
It’s interestingly to say that, Adam Schiff and Davin Nunes didn’t look at each other during this back-and-forth.
Near the end, the Dems faked an outrage because Trump used his own channel to communicate with Ukraine. Maybe they should be reminded that our first president, George Washington, directed his own diplomatic channels to secure a treaty with Great Britain.
If the Democrats were around in 1794, they would want to impeach him too.
