We have selected some House Republicans' tweets to respond to lead Democrat impeachment manager Rep. Adam Schiff’s presentation today.
Rep. Lee Zeldin framed Schiff’s testimony:
Adam Schiff is trying to write the world’s greatest parody connecting dots not actually connected relying on really bad presumptions, lies and hearsay. He’s putting America to sleep with his uninspiring fairy tale on the floor of the US Senate pic.twitter.com/Qj0Ga2HIsP— Lee Zeldin (@RepLeeZeldin) January 23, 2020
Rep. Zeldin gave the following example of Schiff’s misdirection or worse.
Morrison told Taylor that Sondland told Morrison that Sondland overheard that Zelensky told Pence...This impeachment argument is a house of cards.— Lee Zeldin (@RepLeeZeldin) January 23, 2020
By the way, strong odds Schiff conveniently forgets to mention Yermak’s public account of that day contradicting Sondland.
Rep. Elise Stefanik pointed out the irony of the impeachment over Ukraine in that United States under President Trump did more for Ukraine than previous Presidents.
FACT:— Elise Stefanik (@EliseStefanik) January 22, 2020
✔️Defensive lethal aid for Ukraine was provided under the Trump Admin & NOT the Obama Admin
Yet Democrats were silent when Obama failed to provide defensive lethal aid.
It was Republicans who advocated for defensive lethal aid.
& it was the Trump Admin who delivered.
As Rep. Jim Jordan explained, instead of rushing through the House, Democrats could have waited and asked the courts to compel witnesses.
House Dems couldn’t be bothered to wait for the Courts to decide on witnesses. They said impeachment was urgent!— Rep. Jim Jordan (@Jim_Jordan) January 22, 2020
Now in the Senate, they’re admitting how weak their case is by demanding more witnesses.
In conclusion, Rep. Jordan noted:
Schiff:— Rep. Jim Jordan (@Jim_Jordan) January 22, 2020
-"More than circumstantial evidence" of collusion
-Nunes memo was false
-FISA process was fine
-The "Whistleblower" would testify
-"We haven't spoken... with the 'Whistleblower'"
-Parodied @POTUS' call
-"Mr. Z" referred to Zelensky
But today we're supposed to trust him? pic.twitter.com/NELzVp2usX
