GOP Senator Hawley Drafts Motions to Subpoena Adam Schiff, the Whistleblower and the Bidens to Testify

GatewayPundit - 12 hours 19 sec ago


Senator Josh Hawley

Senator Josh Hawley (R-MO) drafted motions to subpoena impeachment manager Rep. Adam Schiff, ICIG Michael Atkinson, Eric Ciaramella, Hunter Biden and Joe Biden to testify.

“If the Senate calls witnesses, I will ask for votes on all these next week,” Hawley said.

I have drafted motions to subpoena Adam Schiff, the “whistleblower,” Hunter Biden, and Joe Biden to testify. If the Senate calls witnesses, I will ask for votes on all these next week https://t.co/NW1fuyYVF4

— Josh Hawley (@HawleyMO) January 25, 2020

Politico reported that Hawley will also seek communications between the whistleblower (Eric Ciaramella) and Schiff’s staffers as well as ICIG Michael Atkinson’s testimony which is still under seal.

The Missouri Republican is preparing to file subpoena requests for witnesses and documents that Democrats and Republicans alike won’t want to vote on. Hawley’s strategy harmonizes with plans from GOP Sens. Ted Cruz of Texas and Rand Paul of Kentucky to force votes to hear from Hunter Biden, the former vice president’s son who was on the board of Ukrainian energy company Burisma.

Hawley would also seek communications among the whistleblower, Schiff and his staff, transcripts of Atkinson’s congressional testimony, communications between the House impeachment managers and Democratic presidential candidates as well as documents related to Biden’s drive to oust former Ukrainian prosecutor Viktor Shokin. Shokin was deeply unpopular with Western officials, who viewed him as corrupt.

President Trump’s lead impeachment lawyer Pat Cipollone on Saturday hinted that Schiff may be subpoenaed because he never appeared before the House Judiciary Committee’s impeachment hearing.

Lead investigator Adam Schiff still has not testified or answered any questions.

In contrast, Ken Starr was cross-examined by the Clinton White House during Slick Willie’s impeachment in 1998.

Schiff is still keeping Michael Atkinson’s testimony under seal because it will reveal Schiff’s staffers colluded with the whistleblower Eric Ciaramella before he filled out a whistleblower form.

Atkinson’s testimony will also reveal that Eric Ciaramella lied about his contact with Schiff’s office.

Former NatSec CoS and CIA analyst Fred Fleitz said the whistleblower did not fill out the form on his own, rather it looks like Schiff’s staffers and lawyers helped draft the complaint.

“From my experience, such an extremely polished whistleblowing complaint is unheard of,” Fleitz said. “He appears to have collaborated in drafting his complaint with partisan House Intelligence Committee members and staff.”

George Will: "Prophylactic Impeachment" To Prevent Continuing Predictable Behavior From Miscreant Trump

RealClear - 12 hours 54 min ago
Syndicated columnist George Will argues an occasional impeachment encourages presidents to understand there are consequences. "One of the reasons for an impeachment is not just to punish for deeds already done as with Nixon's criminality or the lying under oath of Bill Clinton. There is such a thing as a prophylactic impeachment, and Congressman Schiff laid this out. That is to prevent continuing behavior of a sort that is predictable from a miscreant president," Will argued Saturday on MSNBC. "There is a deterrent effect of simply having been put through this," Will told MSNBC host Lawrence O'Donnell. "Presidents tend to have an inflated sense of their prerogatives for lots of reasons, and both parties are complicit in creating the imperial presidency. But, therefore, an occasional impeachment does concentrate their minds on the fact that there can be consequences, that an abuse of power can be conjured up, can be asserted. And so a nervous president is probably a good thing to puncture the presidential swagger that we've been living with under both parties."
