Rep. Doug Collins (R-Ga.), the ranking member of the Judiciary Committee and an outspoken critic against the sham investigation ran by Rep. Adam Schiff, sent a letter to the Chairman of Judiciary Committee Jerrold Nadler (D-N.Y.) demanding that he expand the panel beyond the four constitutional law scholars from whom the committee plans to hear from, come December 4th.
The letter state the following:
On Wednesday, December 4, 2019, the House Judiciary Committee (the “Committee”) is scheduled to hear testimony on the constitutional grounds for presidential impeachment from four scholars. To ensure fairness and restore integrity to the ongoing impeachment process, I request an expanded panel and a balanced composition of academic witnesses to opine on the subject matter at issue during the hearing.
Historically, the Committee has called upon a robust slate of academics — representing a spectrum of scholastic and political viewpoints — to expound upon the somber subject of removing a duly-elected president. For example, during the impeachment inquiry of President William J. Clinton, the Committee assembled two panels of ten and nine academics, respectively, to help the Committee grapple with impeachment.
On December 4, the Committee will hear from only four academic witnesses during its consideration of the question of impeachment. This is less than a quarter of those called to testify during the Clinton impeachment. In light of this, I request that you expand the number of witnesses called upon to testify on December 4 to give the American people a wider array of perspectives regarding impeachment. I further request that you equally allocate those witnesses to the majority and minority’s choosing. Read more…
Posting this letter on twitter, Rep. Doug Collins said; “The least Chairman Nadler can do to show an ounce of fairness to the American people—and indicate that Judiciary proceedings will be more than raw political theater—is allow an equal distribution of witnesses for Wednesday’s impeachment hearing.”
WATCH DOUG COLLINS WEIGH IN ON DEM’S HAVING NOTHING TO IMPEACH ON
Chairman Nadler’s hearing next week shows Democrats would rather replay a baseless June hearing than hear from fact witnesses Republicans have requested.
