The first impeachment hearing opened this morning at 10 AM Eastern.
Acting Ambassador to Ukraine Bill Taylor and Deputy Assistant Secretary of State George Kent were the first two witnesses called in by Adam Schiff.
All of the GOP requested witnesses were turned down.
The President is not allowed to confront his accusers including anti-Trump CIA operative Eric Ciaramella.
Schiff threatened Republicans with ethics charges if they mention the name of the Trump-hating whistleblower Eric Ciaramella.
Blowhard Ambassador Taylor opened the hearing with a real snoozer – a 41 minute rambling opening statement.
During this Schiff trainwreck Democrat Rep. Mike Quigley (D_IL) summed up the Democrat Party’s stance perfectly.
Rep. Quigley told the audience, “Heresay can be much better evidence than DIRECT EVIDENCE.”
That’s not helping representative.
Direct quote from the Dems’ public show hearing: “Hearsay can be much better evidence than direct.”
In what universe is hearsay better than direct evidence??
Nancy Pelosi’s House of Representatives apparently.
This “hearing” is a total sham. pic.twitter.com/mhTKwikNG9
