    Schiff's stunningly hypocritical response to Nunes is below:

    Dear Ranking Member Nunes:

    The Committee is in receipt of your letter, dated today, proposing witnesses for the impeachment inquiry's open hearings. The Committee is carefully evaluating the witness list you provided, along with the written justifications you included.

    Consistent with H. Res. 660 and as noted in my November 6, 2019 letter, the Committee will give due consideration to witnesses within the scope of the impeachment inquiry.

    In doing so, the Committee is mindful that this inquiry is a solemn undertaking, enshrined by the Founders in the Constitution, to determine whether the President of the United States warrants impeachment by the House of Representatives.

    As we move to open hearings, it is important to underscore that the impeachment inquiry, and the Committee, will not serve as vehicles for any Member to carry out the same sham investigations into the Bidens or debunked conspiracies about 2016 U.S. election interference that President Trump pressed Ukraine to conduct for his personal political benefit.

    The Committee also will not facilitate efforts by President Trump and his allies in Congress to threaten, intimidate, and retaliate against the whistleblower who courageously raised the initial alarm. It remains the duty of the Intelligence Committee to protect whistleblowers, and until recently, this was a bipartisan priority. The whistleblower has a right under laws championed by this Committee to remain anonymous and to be protected from harm.

    The impeachment inquiry, moreover, has gathered an ever-growing body of evidence - from witnesses and documents, including the President's own words in his July 25 call record - that not only confirms, but far exceeds, the initial information in the whistleblower's complaint.

    The whistleblower's testimony is therefore redundant and unnecessary.

    In light of the President's threats, the individual's appearance before us would only place their personal safety at grave risk.

    As a reminder, Schiff initially said the whistleblower would testify to Congress but backed away after the contact between the person and his team was revealed.

    Deep State sickos turning all of their wrongs in Ukraine around and lying with their agenda on public record....not to mention totally flipflopping on their own actions towards previous whistleblowers who outed them.... We, the people, are boss and something should be done...seriously about their criminality....there is no doubt that this is all serious mortal sin and is criminal. The most serious punishments ever should be put on this Democrat House and all of the Intelligence agencies and donors helping them. This is total dishonesty to the people and on record.

    This idiot Schiff calls the Biden investigation a sham even though Quid Pro Joe told us about the quid pro quo while bragging on video tape. Schiff is the only one running sham investigations. I wish he would get hit by a train since he is flipping our republic on it's head with his horseshit. It would be best for the country if he was "Seth Riched".

    No A9 I think the Senate should take it up. That way Trump can have legal representation that will be able to cross examine as well as call on witnesses to appear.
