House Judiciary Committee ranking member Rep. Doug Collins, R-Ga., will very soon have to submit a list of witnesses the Republicans want to call to committee chairman Jerry Nadler. Schiff is currently submitting the heavily edited account of what happened in the hearings in the House Intel Committee. Nonetheless, Rep Collins says that his number one pick for the key witness is Adam Schiff himself. If you think Nadler will okay that, you are delusional. He wants to keep as far away from Democratic misconduct as he can be.
Other witnesses that Collins might want to call are Joe Biden, Hunter Biden, Alexandra Chalupa Intel IG Michael Atkinson and former Ukrainian prosecutor Viktor Shokin. None of whom Nadler will approve. The Democrats aren’t even pretending to be running a legitimate investigation. Nadler will however call a dozen witnesses that heard something at the water cooler or have developed opinions regardless of the fact that have zero proof such as Gordon Sondland.
Besides intentionally lying about what is in the transcript of the call between Trump and his Ukrainian counterpart, Schiff also made contact with the illicit whistleblower before they contacted the Intel IG as required by law. His answers would be interesting to say the least.
“My first and foremost witness is Adam Schiff,” Collins told “Fox News Sunday.” He claimed that if Schiff does not make himself available for questioning, it will reflect poorly on his credibility and the work he has done so far.
“If he chooses not to, then I really question his veracity and what he’s putting in his report. I question the motive of why he’s doing it,” Collins said. Collins specifically said he wants Schiff to discuss what he and his staff knew about the whistleblower’s complaint, and Schiff’s own interactions with Ukraine.
He also claimed that Schiff has withheld documents relevant to the inquiry.
“If they think they have such a case, give us all the materials,” he said.
