After the Trump Administration called off the closed door testimony of the U.S. ambassador to the European Union Gordon Sondland Tuesday, Democrats including House Intelligence Chairman Adam Schiff accused President Trump of obstructing justice. Rep. Jim Jordan told reporters Tuesday that Schiff’s attempts to impeach the President ‘unfair and partisan.’
Hasn’t Adam Schiff been fully discredited by now? Do we have to continue listening to his lies?

“You think about what the Democrats are trying to do, impeach the President of the United States thirteen months prior to an election based on an anonymous whistleblower with no firsthand knowledge who has a bias against the President, and the guy running the process Chairman Schiff didn’t event tell us that he had met with the whistleblower prior to the whistleblower filing the complaint,” said Jordan.
Further, Jordan agreed with the Trump Administration’s decision based on Schiff’s withholding of Former U.S. special representative for Ukraine negotiations Kurt Volker’s testimony from public release last week.
“Frankly, this is a pattern with Mr. Schiff. He did the same thing if you remember the first big hearing the Democrats did this congress Michael Cohen. He didn’t tell us that his staff had met with Mr. Cohen four hours prior to Mr. Cohen testifying. He didn’t tell us that last summer he had met with Mr. Simpson out in Colorado around with the guy from Fusion GPS, so this is a pattern,” Jordan explained.
