Boom! Rep. Liz Cheney hit the nail on the head and in a video confronted House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and House intelligence Chairman Adam Schiff.
Cheney has not been shy in her criticism of the Democrat’s corrupt impeachment inquiry. Cheney first blasted Pelosi over comments Pelosi made during a 60 Minutes when she said she knew what was in the transcript before it was okayed for release by the White House.
Cheney said, “Speaker Pelosi said on 60 Minutes last night she knew the details of the classified Ukraine call before White House released transcript. This is starting to seem like a political set up. So, Madame Speaker, “what did you know and when did you know it?”

As the Democrats in Congress continue to push impeachment, Republicans in the House are getting louder and louder challenging the Democrats. Cheney said:
“I think one of the really important things to recognize about the impeachment effort is the extent to which the materials are being kept in secret not just from the public, but kept in secret from other members.
So, we have had members go down and attempt to read the transcripts, for example Kurt Volker’s testimony and they were denied access.
The Constitution of the United States does not say that the power of impeachment resides with Speaker Pelosi, doesn’t say it resides with the Speaker of the House, doesn’t say that it resides with the Chairman of the Intel Committee. It says it resides with the House of Representatives.
And it is really a shameful miscarriage of their responsibilities and their duties for them to be conducting this exercise in which they will not even share information with members of Congress beyond the select few who they have identified.”

Thank you, Rep. Cheney and you are correct it is up to the whole House, not just the Democrats to do their dirty work behind closed doors out of public view.
