The WH is not defying Schiff's subpoenas

He's not issuing subpoenas. MSNBC all afternoon, unprecedented, etc, etc. Violation of the law.

Complete BS, the executive branch never cooperates when the legislative branch investigates, that's why they have the power to subpoena. Use it and go to court or stop the farce.

1. Let me be clear. Absolute bullshit.

A subpoena is a legal document subject to appeal to a designated court. What Schiff is doing is sending strongly worded letters (memos) demanding compliance. I'd love to see him go to court with that.

2. The LAST thing Schiff wants is a real legal process where Rs have the ability to particpate

and cross-examine witnesses. The media is pumping out their usual lies.

6. Exactly. But it won't work for him in the long run.

The vast majority of the public is way too smart to buy into it.

7. I think actually getting Trump impeached is secondary for Schiff

Like John McCain, his first priority is being a press whore. (Not saying McCain lied as much but he certainly was a press whore.)

And Schiff can get away with telling all of the lies he wants because he won his seat with about 80% of the vote last time.

3. Schitt has no authority to issue anything......he's engaged in an illegitimate activity.

Pelosi is trying to impeach The President of the United States out of her little , dinky committees who hold secret hearings.

What the F is this ?.....USSR 2.0 ?

4. It is dem desperation in the extreme.

Probably some Rs wrapped up in the corruption as well.

5. I don't think they have any intention of holding an impeachment vote.

They know they will fail in the Senate.

I think they intend to continue with their little secret inquisition, sending out "subpoenas" (really stern, threatening letters), refusing to allow Republicans to question "witnesses". or invite witnesses of their own, meanwhile, "leaking" selected rumors, accusations and innuendo to their fellow democrats in the MSM, in the hope of planting the "Trump is a lawless criminal, committing treason" thought in "independents" subconscious minds running up to the election.

I'm not sure they can get away with this charade for a year, but we'll see.

8. More or less agree with you

I think their primary objective is to get Trump as much bad press as possible in an attempt to kill his approval and keep him from winning a second term.

Of course that's also what they tried running up to the 2016 GE and it didn't work so we'll see how things pan out next year.
