Republicans storm closed-door Trump impeachment hearing

The Democrat-led impeachment investigation on President Trump was delayed for around four hours on Wednesday after a group of Republicans stormed the closed-door evidence session with a Defense Department official. More than two dozen Republican lawmakers who were not authorized to attend the hearing surged into the room where Laura Cooper was due to testify behind closed doors.

Schiff doesnt like the idea of information being known to anyone, other than through his constant leaks.

Aren’t our representatives actually representing US? Why can’t we see what is going on in our government?

Why are such hearings being kept in backrooms while the Democrats are calling anyone a Russian bot

The hypocrisy of the right is astounding. They have done things to undermine our Constitution and our country for years. All this is bs posturing to disrupt the inevitable-the impeachment of Trump. #BunchOfCrooks

without having a leg to stand on to even launch a meaningful attack on the substance of the inquiry, in desperation they are trying the angle of attacking the process.

I love how there are so many Democrat sympathisers within the comment section. After years of faking the Russian Collusion, the Dems instead are pushing for anything since at this point their candidates are weak, their policies are weak, the party is in a cold war with itself. Just a disaster.

They are DESPERATE to get their hands on evidence as it appears, so they can shape it accordingly in a more sympathetic manner for Trump, in order to do that they need time, time with the evidence and so they can hand it off to their lawyers so they can work out a counter-narrative more hospitable to the MAGAists. The Dems are shutting them out, and with good reason too. Once bitten, twice shy. The House Repubs etc are floundering cos they just don't know how to ably defend Trump. They can't talk about the facts because everything about those facts are bad news for Trump, the WH doesn't have any kind of counter-Impeachment machinery in place, clearly by order of Trump who at this point trusts absolutely no-one, so they have to react to impulsive Trump wank jerks via tweet or in rambling press briefings/gatherings. And this is no kind of strategy whatsoever seeing as Trump so often steps on his own message/talking point within days leaving Repub lawmakers high & dry time and again. Almost 2 years waiting for the Mueller Report gave the right ample time to poison the waters and direct the messaging when it was eventually released. In this scandal, the Repubs and Trump have always been behind the news, every step of the way, they don't control any part of the narrative whatsoever, and it's tanking the numbers. This is an act of desperation by Repub lawmakers, nothing more, nothing less.

“So what conservative would adopt the tactics of a filthy communist? A conservative who is sick and tired of losing his country to people who have no standards, and realizes that there will be no such thing as righteousness if he does not prevail in the conflict.”

The pressure must be getting to the GOP. That was very childish and unprofessional to bust in like that. You do know that Democrats weren't allowed either.
