Fake Impeachment Catch-Up Thread

Schiff has made up New Rules -- unilaterally -- that the only Republicans permitted to ask questions are Devin Nunes and a staffer who I think is named Castor. A source says Castor is a good lawyer, but people are telling me he's coming off as a real blank on TV.

And Schiff made up a rule saying that he would be one of the only twp people to question "Masha" Yavonovich, the former Obama-holdover ambassador to Ukraine fired by Trump.

Of course Trump is permitted to fire her; but the media and Democrats have decided -- as they last decided during the Bush presidency, when they declared it was an abuse of office for Bush to fire all of Clinton's US Attorneys -- that Republicans must always retain the political appointees that a Democrat president has hired.

When Nunes moved to yield his time to Ellie Stafanovic, Adam Schiff and his Ten Inch Neck started banging the gavel to shut her up.

Nunes questions why Yavonovich is even a witness -- she has absolutely no knowledge of these Impeachable Phone Calls we keep hearing about.

The only reason she was called by Democrats is so that she can Appeal to Women with her Sad Stories about how Sad she was when Trump fired her.

The appeal to women with your sad stories strategies did work -- one woman almost moved to tears by Yavonovich's sad story of being fired as political appointees routinely are was .... the supposedly "Fair and Balanced" FoxNews' liberal Chris Wallace.

Who was very, very "moved" by her Sad Stories of Woe.

Mark Meadows says to Chris Wallace, basically: Wipe your tears away, Susan, and try to butch up a bit.

Later, Trump tweeted out the reason why he had fired Yavonovich.

Adam Schiff claimed that this was "witness intimidation." Somehow.

Schiff read this tweet out to Yavonovich and asked her how it made her feel.

She said it made her feel sad.

And as we all know, making people feel sad is Witness Intimidation.

The media -- get this -- swiftly agreed that Trump tweeting out that Yavonovich was a bad ambassador was witness intimidation and should lead to a fresh impeachment charge.

And when I say "the media," I include.. Chris Wallace and Bret Baier. Who are pretty much just MSNBC-on-Fox now.

Mollie took the opportunity to disagree with the guy whose show she keeps afloat by blessing it with higher ratings:

Sean Davis notes that earlier, it was impeachable because Trump had fired Yavonovich without noting the cause for termination -- which, by the way, he's allowed to do; political appointees serve at the pleasure of the president -- and now they're claiming it's impeachable to explain the cause.

Bret Baier and Chris Wallace and most of the other Fox All-Stars are now, yet again, in agreement with Hillary Clinton:

Hillary Clinton does not believe in witness intimidation. She believes in witness elimination. Because Epstein did not kill himself.

Also, Nunes' opening statement is good, if you want to watch that:
