Rep. Adam Schiff threatened GOP lawmakers with “ethics” punishments after they stormed the impeachment hearings this morning in the star chamber.
Rep. John Ratcliffe told Fox News yesterday that not a single Democrat Trump-hating witness has provided testimony that the Ukrainians were aware that military aide was being withheld from them by President Trump. As Ratcliffe said, “You can’t have a quid pro quo with no quo!”
Following a press conference today GOP House members attempted to enter the star chamber impeachment proceedings. Democrats had them removed.
Rep. Mark Warner tweeted that Adam Schiff was so “peeved” that he is threatening “ethics” punishment against the Republican lawmakers who stormed the SCIF room.
UPDATE: We are in the SCIF and every GOP Member is quietly listening.
His fake intimidation can’t hide his lies–Open the process!

GOP KS Rep Marshall on Schiff when GOPers tried to enter closed door interview. Marshall says Schiff “just got up and left. He doesn’t have the guts to tell us why we can’t come in the room. Why he doesn’t want this to be transparent. It’s the biggest facade. The biggest farce”

Adam Schiff wants to impose ethics punishment when he’s the one holding secret meetings! What the Democrats are doing is leaking cherry-picked pieces of witness testimony. However, they don’t want Republicans or the People to know the whole story.
🚨 BREAKING → My colleagues & I went to confront Schiff face-to-face in his locked room in the Capitol basement to see what he’s been hiding.
When we got there he immediately shut down the hearing & fled with the witness.
Republicans won’t back down! We demand transparency! pic.twitter.com/4Hp1j4KNUk

Adam Schiff just SHUT DOWN his secret underground impeachment hearing after I led a group of Republicans into the room. Now he’s threatening me with an Ethics complaint! I’m on the Armed Services Cmte but being blocked from the Dept. Asst. SecDef’s testimony. This is a SHAM! pic.twitter.com/6qUMerxENC

2 possible GOP responses to Resistance’s latest effort to undo 2016. 1) Allow Dems to do secret hearings, leak out snippets, let them set narrative, impotently respond. 2) Go on offense and call out absurdity of it all, after Russia, EC, 25thA, Cohen, SDNY, Smoky Daniels, etc.
