Republicans have requested a list of witnesses for the impeachment hearings (alphabetical order):
-The “Whistleblower” & their sources
Will @RepAdamSchiff permit them to testify?
Republicans only have til Saturday to request witnesses for ALL open hearings.
-@RepAdamSchiff decides WHICH witnesses testify, if any
-Schiff decides WHEN witnesses testify, if at all
-President’s counsel still excluded
Does this sound like due process?
The “Whistleblower’s” lawyer called for a “coup” almost as soon as President Trump took office.
All the more reason why we need to hear from the individual who started this whole impeachment sham.
The “Whistleblower” should testify under oath and in person.
.@HouseDemocrats expect you to believe that Amb. Taylor knew of a quid pro quo.
Here are the facts:
• He never spoke to President Trump about military aid
• Was not part of the July 25 call between Presidents
• No first-hand knowledge
Ambassador Volker was our first witness, the Special Envoy to Ukraine.
He gave the definitive account on the Trump Administration’s diplomacy with Ukraine. And he was very clear: “no linkage.”
Interesting how that’s the one transcript the media doesn’t want to talk about.
Last week, @HouseDemocrats passed a purely partisan resolution "promising" a transparent #impeachment process.
Well, we're back again today in @RepAdamSchiff's bunker, conducting closed-door depositions, in secret.
Sounds like the Democrats didn't keep their promise.
We asked Amb. Volker, Special Envoy to Ukraine, “Did @POTUS ever withhold a meeting with President Zelensky... until the Ukrainians committed to investigate the allegations... concerning the 2016 election?”
Volker: “The answer to the question is no... there was no linkage.”
Before sending that text, Ambassador Sondland had a phone call with the President.
Sondland asked President Trump “what do you want from Ukraine?”
The President said, “I want nothing. I want no quid pro quo. I want Zelensky to do the right thing... to do what he ran on.”
President Zelensky was elected because he promised to clean up corruption in Ukraine.
In fact, President Zelensky told President Trump on the July 25th call that “we wanted to drain the swamp here in our country... You are a great teacher for us and in that.”
Ambassador Yovanovitch testified that President Trump had a “deep rooted skepticism” about corruption in Ukraine. And she shared that concern.
President Trump wanted to make sure that American taxpayer dollars weren’t being wasted on a corrupt nation. (p. 142-143)
