Rep. Devin Nunes (R-CA) issued a letter to House Intelligence Committee chairman Adam Schiff (D-CA) on Thursday demanding that the minority party be allowed to call witnesses to testify during the impeachment proceedings.
Nunes cited House Rule XI, Clause 1(a)(1)(A) and House Rule XI, Clause 2(j)(1) in order to make the case that it is germane for Republicans to bring forth witnesses for questioning at an upcoming hearing.
“As the Committee continues to conduct the Democrats’ partisan and one-sided “impeachment inquiry,” there are still important perspectives and serious issues that you have prevented the Committee from examining,” Nunes explained in the letter.
“We will inform you of the witnesses we intend to call once you have provided a hearing date and time to which we agree. Your failure to schedule this hearing shall constitute evidence of your denial of fundamental fairness and due process,” he added.
One possible witness could be CIA officer Eric Ciaramella, the man widely believed to be the whistleblower who initiated the newest phase of the impeachment witch hunt with his complaint against President Trump. Ciaramella is a long-time deep state operative who has been noted for his extreme partisanship with extensive ties to powerful Democrats.
The entirety of the letter, which was also signed by Republican Reps. Michael Conaway (TX), Michael Turner (OH), Will Hurd (TX), Brad Wenstrup (OH), Elise Stefanik (NY), Chris Stewart (UT), and John Ratcliffe (TX), can be viewed in its entirety here:

This news further dooms the impeachment inquiry, which has not exactly captivated the public. The backlash from the ongoing witch hunt hearings have caused President Trump to receive a substantial bump in the polls.
A new poll shows that Trump’s approval ratings are spiking as support for impeachment drops:
A new poll shows support for the impeachment of President Trump has declined since public hearings have started.
The Emerson poll released Thursday found support for impeachment has dropped from 48% to 43% since October, while opposition to impeachment has risen from 44% to 45%.
Independents are key in the shift, with 49% opposing impeachment and only 34% supporting impeachment. In October, 48% of independents supported impeachment and 39% opposed.
The poll also showed Trump’s approval rating rising to a net positive. Forty-eight percent approved of the president while 47% disapproved. His approval rating was only 43% a month ago.
A Morning Consult- Politico poll this week also showed independents are beginning to oppose impeachment as the second week of public hearings wraps up. The poll found a 10% drop in support from independents since the beginning of public hearings.
President Trump gloated during an appearance “Fox & Friends” on Friday morning that the FISA report on the Russian collusion investigation is dropping soon, which he claims will be “historic.”
“So, you have a FISA report coming out, which the word is, it’s historic. That’s what the word is That’s what I hear,” Trump said.
“Now, what you’re going to see, I predict, will be perhaps the biggest scandal in the history of our country,” he continued.
“And, if it’s historic, you’re going to see something. And then, perhaps even more importantly, you have [John Durham’s report] coming out shortly thereafter — the U.S. attorney — and he’s already announced it’s criminal,” he added. “I’ll tell you what, you have a lot of very bad people.”
The schemes of these “very bad people” in the Democratic Party have failed miserably, and President Trump and his GOP seemingly have them exactly where they want them right now.
Deranged Democrat Demands Prosecution of 40,000 Trump Supporters Who Were OUTSIDE Capitol
Guilt by association.
Texas Democrat Sheila Jackson Lee implied that every protestor who was outside of the Capitol on January 6th should face criminal prosecution in a Tuesday tweet threat, utilizing a “guilt-by-association” theory more commonly associated with the criminal justice system of third world countries.
Jackson Lee falsely claimed that the 40,000 protestors who arrived in the area of the Capitol in January all intended to overturn the election by killing the Speaker of the House, Mike Pence, and Members of Congress. In reality, there’s little to no reason that anyone outside of small handful of easily manipulated cosplayers intended to become seriously violent.
2/4 alleged that 40,000 protesters were in DC with the mindset to overturn a legitimate election and to kill the Speaker, the Vice President, and Members of Congress, in that instance, only 300 persons have now been arrested and are being prosecuted. What kind of justice is that?

Only a small minority of the protestors present at the January 6th protest engaged in any criminal trespassing and violent conduct. Peaceful protestors present at the event in fact urged those breaking boundaries to stop, likening them to Antifa criminals. Hundreds of individuals present at the event are being prosecuted- in some cases, on dubious grounds. Jackson Lee’s proposal would criminalize peaceful protest in a direct fashion.
Jackson Lee compared the peaceful protestors to Portland’s enduring anarchist criminal movement, ignoring that the January 6th event hasn’t repeated on a nightly basis in a fashion analogous to the anarcho-tyrannical city. While street criminals have been arrested at the Portland protests, Multnomah County’s left-wing prosecutor, Mike Schmidt, has consistently dropped criminal charges against nearly every arrestee involved in left-wing street violence.
1/4 Testimony today on the Hill evidences that in the Portland protests, a thousand people were arrested. People protesting against the violence that was evidenced in the George Floyd murder. People wanting good things to happen. In Washington DC on January 6th, where it is

Lee also likened left-wing rioters in Portland to “good people wanting good things to happen,” excusing systemic violence because she supports the aims of those who commit it.
Under the fist of anarcho-tyranny, there is no such thing as a neutral standard of “law.” There’s domination- impunity for those who obey those who wield the levers of political power, and severity against those who dare to challenge it though peaceful protest.
