We wanted to be sure you saw Lee Zeldin on ABC’s This Week this morning. Democrats continue their efforts to impeach President Trump in secret. Congressman Zeldin put it this way:
Adam Schiff wants to get the United States of America drunk on his favorite cocktail. There are three ingredients: One is cherry picking leaks, the second is withholding facts, and three is just outright lying.
Watch the clip here and read the transcript below:
JONATHAN KARL: You’re okay with all the transcripts coming out. You want to see Fiona Hill’s who is testifying next week. You want to see all the people that the administration does not want to testify. You want those transcripts?
REP. LEE ZELDIN: The President wants there to be a process. The President is saying there should be a vote for an impeachment inquiry. As you just pointed out with Congressman Himes, there should be a process. The minority party should have subpoena power. The President should have counsel present. He should be able to cross examine witnesses, he should be able to present evidence. There should be a process but instead what Adam Schiff wants it to get the United States of America drunk on his favorite cocktail. There’s three ingredients: One is cherry picking leaks, the second is withholding facts, and three is just outright lying.
I mean he lied about his whistleblower contact, he lied when he gave his opening statement from the Acting Director of National Intelligence, he lied when he said that President Trump request President Zelensky to “manufacture dirt.” Now if we all had Ambassador Volker’s testimony we would know that that’s not true. We would also know that it obliterated the quid pro quo charge, that fairytale that President Trump supposedly demanded that there would be an investigation opened against the Bidens in order to get aid from the United States to Ukraine.
