Republicans Storm Secure Room, Demand Greater Access To Proceedings On Impeachment Inquiry

Published

Republican members of the House of Representatives stormed the secure room where Democrat lawmakers have been questioning witnesses for the impeachment inquiry launched by Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi, demanding they be given more access to the proceedings.

More than a dozen GOP lawmakers met outside the meeting room, though they were immediately kicked out.

Here’s more from The Washington Examiner:

“This is an outrage,” Rep. Debbie Lesko, Arizona Republican, said.

The impeachment inquiry is centered on allegations that President Trump attempted to pressure Ukrainian President Zelensky to open investigations for his own personal gain, lead by the House Intelligence, Foreign Affairs, and Oversight committees.

Only members on those three committees — Republicans and Democrats — have been allowed in the room to ask questions, a fact Democrats have been highlighting as they push back on GOP criticism.

Over the past two weeks, several Republicans not on those committees have tried to get access to the secret depositions and transcripts of those meetings, but this is the largest group to attempt it.

Around 20 Republican lawmakers refused to leave the room during a securing hearing where Defense Department official Laura Cooper was set to testify.

Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz claimed that the sit-in put on by members of the House GOP derailed Cooper’s testimony, saying it was not clear when it would begin again.

Democratic lawmakers present in the room said that those who participated in the storming of the room brought in cell phones, which violates the rules of the secured room.

“They had no regard for the witness or making sure we can continue to hold the president accountable and ensure we can get to the bottom of this,” Wasserman Schultz said. “If they don’t have a leg to stand on when it comes to the substance of evidence, they have to argue process.”

Ms. Lesko spoke to the Washington Times, saying “It’s really unfortunate that they [Democrats] have the votes and apparently they are not following any procedures, any precedents, any rules.”

“I’ll tell you what, if we are in the majority, I would not allow this kind of unfair process to go on,” she went on.

Speaking the truth these days means you’re liable to get suspended, fired, “cancelled,” and/or seriously physically injured – depending on the liberal that you have offended. This is what happens when the criminally insane are allowed to run the asylum. From The Daily Wire: A New York university has suspended an education student from mandatory teaching programs for posting Instagram videos expressing conservative ideology. State University of New York (SUNY) Geneseo sent an email to education student Owen Stevens placing him on suspension from his field teaching programs after his peers uncovered videos of him preaching conservative dogma. The school claims that Stevens’ videos “call into question” his ability to “maintain a classroom environment protecting the mental and emotional well-being of all of [his] students.” According to a copy of Steven’s suspension obtained by The Daily Wire, the education student will remain suspended from participating in in-school field experiences and courses that have field experiences until he completes a “remediation plan.” The remediation plan includes taking down his Instagram videos, toning down his social media presence, and attending school-sanctioned training. Stevens said he would not take part in “remediation.” Good. He shouldn’t. How is it acceptable for a person to be punished for talking facts? How are people that flipping offended, nowadays!?

House Passes Equality Act, Which Will Hurt ‘Religious Freedom, Women’s Sports’ & More

Party of ‘science’…

How can Democrats claim to “follow the science” when they believe there are more than two genders? Shouldn’t all their opinions be disregarded automatically based on that alone? These people are out of control. What’s worse is that they believe they are doing the right thing. From Washington Times: House Democrats on Thursday passed the Equality Act, taking their cues from President Biden as he pushes transgender rights to the forefront over warnings of dire repercussions for religious freedom, women’s sports and female privacy. The bill, which would add sex, gender identity and sexual orientation to the 1964 Civil Rights Act, was approved 224-206, with three Republicans voting in favor of the measure, a drop from the eight who supported the measure in 2019. The previous legislation had little chance with Republicans in charge of the Senate and President Trump in the White House, but Mr. Biden has made transgender rights a priority, starting with a landmark Day One executive order to combat discrimination based on gender identity and sexual orientation.
