Ms. Chairman, I think it’s obvious, you know, to all of the American public that this is a railroad job. Things have been going quickly, but I think the real key is, is that all of the denials of minority requests both here and in the intelligence committee, the republicans and the President have not been able to put on live witnesses to be able to basically put together a defense. And if you’re going to have a trial, it has to have both a prosecution and a defense.
Here, we don’t have a defense because of the rulings that have been made one of which was just made a few minutes ago by the Chairman of this committee.
Now, let me say, you know, first of all, the hearings that were in the basement of the Capitol were secret hearings, they were classified hearings. None of the members who were in that hearing room could ethically go out and tell the public and the news media exactly what was said there and they probably could have been held before the ethics committee or worse if they attempted to do that. There were leaks that came out of there, I grant you that, but none of the members could.
The other point is that the vast majority of members of the judiciary committee, which has ultimate jurisdiction over all proposed impeachments were not members of the three other committees, and were not allowed to go into the basement of the Capitol hearing room to listen to what was going on. And to see those live witnesses, there are a number of my colleagues on this side of the aisle, including Ms. Lesko and Mr. Gaetz that attempted to do that. And Chairman Schiff kicked them out or wouldn’t allow them to go in there.
Now, when you have a trial, you really cannot make a determination on exactly whether the witnesses are telling the truth or exaggerating or mixing it up or spinning it some way or the other without looking at them in person. We don’t have that opportunity. There were a few select witnesses that were in the public hearings over in the intelligence committee couple of weeks ago, but the intelligence committee does not have the jurisdiction on whether to recommend the impeachment of anybody, let alone the President of the United States.
Now, we know, we heard complaints about the fact that in the Clinton impeachment there were no fact witnesses. Mr. Shabat and I were there, as well as Ms. Lofgren, Ms. Jackson Lee and Chairman. And what happened there is that both sides were allowed to present whatever witnesses they wanted to. Kenneth Starr did all of the ground work in putting together the facts. He sent over 36 boxes of evidences which were put over into the Ford Building. That’s not happened here. The independent counsel that was appointed to look into what President Trump has done, Mr. Mueller came and testified and that ended up being a big fizzle, you know – for what the Democrats wanted to do. So, much of the Mueller stuff after his testimony and the cross-examination by members on both sides of the aisle ended up disappearing into outer space.
So, they have to find something else.

Now let me say that everybody on both ends of the telephone call between President Trump and President Zelensky has said very clearly there was no quid pro quo offered.
There was no pressure that was put on the Ukrainians.
I don’t know how many times President Zelensky has had to say that, apparently it’s not enough because minds on the other side of the aisle are closed, but that’s what the facts are. And the facts, you know, again speak for themselves. There was no impeachable offense here. And that’s why Article One of the impeachment ended up falling flat on its face and that it should be stricken and I support the amendment to strike it from the gentleman of Ohio and I yield back.
