    Adam Schiff’s ‘Grand Jury’

    Adam Schiff’s ‘Grand Jury’



    Adam Schiff’s ‘Grand Jury’ - WSJ
    Oct. 13, 2019 5:50 pm ET
    Mrs. Pelosi took the impeachment reins away from Judiciary Chairman Jerrold Nadler and handed them to Mr. Schiff, who has been running secret hearings as Chairman of the Intelligence Committee. Witnesses testify behind closed doors, and Democrats selectively leak the testimony or evidence to the pro-impeachment press in ways that are often distorted or incomplete. Republicans then offer a competing narrative, and the public is left to wonder what’s true. All of this is supposedly in service to the serious purpose of removing a President elected by 63 million Americans.
    Mr. Schiff was challenged on his secrecy on Sunday by Margaret Brennan of CBS’s “Face the Nation,” and the Democrat’s response was extraordinary. “There’s a reason why investigations and grand jury proceedings for example, and I think this is analogous to a grand jury proceeding, are done out of the public view initially,” Mr. Schiff said. “Now we may very well call some of the same witnesses or all the same witnesses in public hearings as well. But we want to make sure that we meet the needs of the investigation and not give the President or his legal minions the opportunity to tailor their testimony and in some cases fabricate testimony to suit their interests.” A grand jury? As Mr. Schiff knows, a grand jury is a criminal proceeding. Impeachment is a political process in which the House defines the meaning of “high crimes and misdemeanors.” Mr. Schiff wants it both ways: Run his secret hearings like a criminal grand jury, but then impeach Mr. Trump of political offenses even if the President committed no crime. And he wants to keep it all secret so Mr. Trump and his “legal minions”—i.e., his lawyers and the House minority—don’t have access to the evidence he will use against the President.

    Comment:
    Adam Schiff is running a secret "Star Chamber Court" with himself as judge and jury. Maybe some Good Ole Boys will have a little proceeding of their own with Schiff for Brains.
    So much for the rights of the accused according to the Progressive Marxist Socialist/DSA Democrat Commies guess. The leftist/fascist tribunals are a real thing. I thought the defense was allowed to see the prosecution's case developing - exactly so they could prepare a defense and not walk into an ambush of accusations.
    Speaking of accusations. If anyone knows about fabricating testimony out of whole cloth it would be the PMS/DSA Commie Leftists. Remember the Kavanaugh fiasco? The Russian collusion investigation? Leftists cannot be trusted, period.
    “and not give the President or his legal minions the opportunity to tailor their testimony and in some cases fabricate testimony to suit their interests.”
    In other words: IT'S A FISHING EXPEDITION. They (PMS/DSA Dems) want to be able to harass everyone in DC that they think might have some juicy information, and they want to do it behind closed doors so that any beneficial, corroborating, or exculpatory information does not see the light of day.

    Impeachment is the new regime change. The FBI and CIA are not only involved they've been leading the movement (CNN contributors ffs). Who's going to call them out for it the media? Lol!

    Why do these strange and foreign looking symbols appear in the thread title?

    That's an odd thing for a lifelong Marxist like you to complain about.
    Well, he see this one particularly hot chick and not does she bag he slackjawed, but he lets a "Whoa" slip out

    It's been an issue of late. There's a couple of threads on it in the feedback and tech issue sub forums.
