After watching five days of these impeachment inquiries I think we can all understand why Adam Schiff was holding meetings in the basement.
These public hearings feel more an HR meeting with disgruntled employees complaining about their boss and their hurt feelings than anything else.
Will Hurd, an anti-Trump Republican said today that he sees no evidence of bribery or corruption,
If you can’t convince him, you’re not going to get 20 GOP Senators to vote in favor of impeachment.
Who agrees that it’s time to end this shame!?

Thus far none of Schiff’s witnesses have firsthand knowledge of anything.
All they’re doing is giving their opinions and presumptions. There’s no evidence, just a bunch of “thoughts and ideas.” And I’m sorry, but that’s not ground for impeachment.
David Holmes was one of the most absurd Deep Staters of the day. Holmes is the big “closing witness” for Dems and he claims he overheard a phone call between Ambassador Sondland and President Trump in a restaurant.
That’s right, he claims he heard Trump speaking through the cell phone (not on speaker) while Sondland was on the call. Stupidest thing ever.
Watch Rep. Ratcliffe absolutely destroy this guy:
? David Holmes is so crystal clear with his recollection about the call that he has to look down at the transcript of his deposition to remember what he said.

One person who has battled these idiotic over-emotional Dems every day now is Ohio Congressman Jim Jordan. He has found this entire sham to be a total joke and a waste of time and he took to Twitter to share his reaction to David Holmes’s opening statement.
Jordan said: “A 40 minute opening statement from a guy who overheard a phone call that was ‘a couple minutes.’ THIS is the Democrats’ last ditch effort? Talk about desperate,”
A 40 minute opening statement from a guy who overheard a phone call that was “a couple minutes.”
THIS is the Democrats’ last ditch effort? Talk about desperate.

At Wednesday’s hearing, Devin Nunes called out the effort led by Adam Schiff for exactly what it is — fantasy.
“I now yield to Mr. Schiff for ‘Storytime Hour,’” Nunes said when yielding over his time.
Jordan’s tweet, though, perfectly calls out the Democrats for what they are through this whole process — desperate. They are grasping at straws to make something, anything, stick, but their house of cards is falling.
State Department staffer David Holmes testified that he was “deeply disappointed” by President Donald Trump’s phone call with the Ukraine president.
“Upon reading the transcript, I was deeply disappointed to see that the president raised none of what I understood to be our interagency agreed-upon foreign policy priorities in Ukraine and instead raised the Biden/Burisma investigation,” he said.
His testimony was again just more whining about Trump’s approach to foreign policy. There has still been nothing substantial presented at these hearings.
Jordan and Holmes clashed during Wednesday’s hearing. Jordan took issue with the fact that Holmes described the Trump/Ukraine phone call as a “touchstone moment” in his life because he believed he witnessed something illegal, but he hasn’t done anything significant about it until now.
Jordan brought up the fact that Ambassador William Taylor outlined numerous conversations with individuals about concerns over the call, but not one of those conversations was with Holmes. Holmes argued it was obvious everyone knew a quid pro quo was happening. After Schiff tried cutting Jordan off several times as Jordan pushed back against Holmes presenting his opinion, rather than fact, the congressman described the non-answer as “filibuster.”
Holmes put on no appearance of non-bias during his testimony. He even openly rolled his eyes and laughed at Jordan. [Bizpacrevew]
Jordan spoke at the end of the hearings and gave another spot-on summation.
Watch the video:
Democrats never got over the fact that this new guy who has never been in this town, never been in politics, came in and is shaking this place up… They’ve never accepted the will of 63 million Americans.”
