When Rep. Matt Gaetz (R-FL) and over two dozen other Republicans stormed a closed-door hearing being held by Rep. Adam Schiff (D-CA), Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC) initially called the move “nuts.”
But after getting all the details, Graham has reversed course.
“CORRECTION: I was initially told House GOP took the SCIF by force – basically like a GOP version of Occupy Wall Street. Apparently it was a peaceful protest. Big difference,” Graham tweeted Wednesday, according to Breitbart.
The outrage among Republicans, as Graham would later say, is completely understandable. Schiff and his Democratic comrades are keeping important documents from other House members — namely, Republicans.
But according to House rules, all House members are supposed to have access to these documents — regardless if they are a member of the committee in question or not.
Still, when Rep. Dan Crenshaw (R-TX) tried to view the transcripts from Schiff’s hearings, he was told he did not have permission to do so.
What exactly are Democrats hiding?
Calling out Democrats
The secrecy within the Democratic Party is simply despicable — but thankfully, Republicans on the Hill are fighting back.
To counter the actions of Democrat leadership, both Sens. Graham and Mitch McConnell (R-KY) have decided to put a piece of legislation on the floor to hold Dems accountable for their actions.
According to the Washington Examiner, several sources have stated that the two Republicans are going to introduce a resolution “condemning the House of Representatives’ closed-door, illegitimate impeachment inquiry.”
The reality of the situation is that Dems are not only keeping their fellow representatives out of the loop, but they are trying to pull a curtain over the eyes of every American in this country.
Conservative or liberal, don’t we all have a right to know the evidence — or lack thereof — in an impeachment case against our president?
