After the 2018 mid-terms, and in preparation for the “impeachment” strategy, House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff and House Judiciary Committee Chairman Jerry Nadler hired Lawfare group members to become House committee staff.
In 2018 Chairman Adam Schiff hired former SDNY U.S. Attorney Daniel Goldman (link). You probably saw Goldman doing the questioning for Schiff during the first public impeachment hearing (above). Meanwhile Judiciary Chairman Jerry Nadler hired Obama Administration lawyer Norm Eisen and criminal defense attorney Barry Berke (link).
However, with a horrible start to the impeachment construct; an outcome of day-one hearings where State Department officials George Kent and Bill Taylor provided no baseline for the impeachment narrative to build upon; Pelosi and Schiff are going outside for more legal assistance. Per Chad Pergram:
After Goldman, Eisen and Berke were brought on board Speaker Nancy Pelosi then hired Douglas Letter as House General Counsel – all are within the Lawfare network.
This move to allow House Counsel to bring on additional legal assistance for the impeachment effort means Doug Letter will be able to hire more lawyers.
Many people surmised that Pelosi and Schiff moved to utilize the Ukraine/NSC impeachment angle *after* the Mueller angle for impeachment ran into trouble. However, CTH research doesn’t reflect the Whistle-blower impeachment plan as an ‘add-on’.
Instead, what we see is the use of the HPSCI; and the use of embeds within National Security Council staff; by design. The Schiff events of today were always part of a prior planned design.
This is going to totaly backfire on those Dirty Rotten Democrats its going to cost them everything
Hire more lawyers congress is full of them but hey if it is actually pro bono put them all in a leaky boat see if 1 of them understand the term hearsay.
Rep. Schiff has been embarrassed greatly, not only because his hearings in public were a disaster, but he’d been partnering up with a Los Angeles news celebrity who just got busted last night for trying to solicit a 9-year old (only 9 years old!!!) for dirty photos!
Back when Schiff was trying to help ObamaCare he held a “Townhall” and partnered with Dr. Hensel who took all the questions from the public and translated them for Schiff and himself to answer.
Dr. Hensel also went to Schiff’s 50th birthday party in Hawaii.
@Nan G: He also has an Ed Buck problem. There seems to be a pattern. It would be poetic justice if this Stalinist creep’s personal life is delved into just like he does to others. Maybe Soros is holding something over his head to get him to carry on like he is. Schitt’s sister is married to one of his sons or at least was.
@kitt: Democrats are trying replace their total lack of evidence with additional devious minds. Desperation.
“Unconfirmed”? Well, I can confirm it. I read where @another vet: wrote that they WERE good buddies. Now you can state you heard it from both of us, fully corroborating the story. AAAAAAnd, we’re DONE! Evidence, the kind that is even better than documented evidence.
