Question for Knapper

In 2017 Devin Nunes wrote a memo saying the FISA court and the FBI acted illegally when granting warrants to spy on the Trump campaign and transition team. That memo has now been proven true. Why should any of us believe anything Adam Schiff now says when he looked at the very same documents Nunes looked at and claimed up and down that the Nunes memo was a fake conspiracy theory?

Re: Question for Knapper

Knapper why do the dems call for more witnesses when Schiff won't even allow them to hear from the ones they already have.

 

Democrats clamoring for more witnesses at President Trump’s impeachment trial are concealing one of those questioned in the House investigation, President Trump’s defense team says.

Rep. Adam B. Schiff, California Democrat, and other impeachment managers repeatedly talk about the 17 witnesses interviewed during the House’s secretive depositions. But they do not mention an 18th witness, Michael Atkinson, the intelligence community’s inspector general who has firsthand knowledge of the origins of the whistleblower complaint that led to the impeachment.

Members of the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence who conducted the interview are barred from disclosing details. But Republicans on the committee said the testimony should be heard at the president’s impeachment trial in the Senate.

The potentially exculpatory evidence for Mr. Trump has remained classified and is not part of the record for the impeachment trial.

Because it remains classified, only members of the intelligence committee have seen it and Mr. Trump’s legal team is denied a copy.

Re: Question for Knapper

I would suggest that if this worried the Republicans and Trump, they should bring forth
documents and witnesses to expose the truth.

Re: Question for Knapper

The Senate voted not to allow any witnesses for one. The other is what these witnesses have already said has been broadcast over and over. The senate can allow any witness they want and the Republicans can, and should question them. There are not enough votes to allow witnesses new or old and the Republicans do not want any.

The senate voted to table the question of more witnesses until after the house and Trump defense team present their cases and the question period that comes after. Then they can re-visit the question of more witnesses. After the senate hears all of the evidence presented and the defense's rebuttal they made decide there is no need of further witnesses.

Re: Question for Knapper

There were 18 witnesses who testified in the house impeachment hearings. The witnesses first testified in a secure room in the house basement before testifying in public and the transcripts could only be released if the house leaders agree to release them. At least one has still not been released. His testimony is still secret. The whistle blower did not testify but we know Schiff's staff had contact with him/her before blowing the whistle even though he denied that contact. That would be witness tampering. He promised we would hear from that whistle blower but has yet to produce him to testify.

Re: Question for Knapper

But no witnesses in the trial in the Senate.

Why do they not call that one witness that is secrete and find out what that witness said?

Or some of the others that have refused to obey the subpoenas and all the documents that your dear leader is now bragging about keeping them from the investigation
