Political pundit Rush Limbaugh weighed in on the House Intelligence Committee, led by Rep. Adam Schiff, saying that the impeachment push is backfiring on Democrats.
Limbaugh introduced what he called “The big news of the day on impeachment,” saying that “the Democrats are saying that their impeachment inquiry is going to take longer than planned.”
“This is not an impeachment that they’re running,” Limbaugh went on. “It is a deception. It’s nothing more than a sham bunch of interviews in a basement, and now Schiff is not even releasing the transcripts to Republicans, not allowing Republicans in. He is simply releasing a series of lies and out-of-context statements attributed to witnesses who, when they come out and see what they supposedly said, are, ‘I didn’t say that.’”
According to Limbaugh, the New York Times published the news that Democrats announced it would be taking longer than they originally anticipated to tender the results of their impeachment inquiry.
“The truth is there’s panic city inside Schiff’s committee room,” Limbaugh said, speculating about the reason for the delay.
“They’re not getting anything. So now they leak to the New York Times, “Oh, my God. We’re getting so much. We may not be able to get this done by Thanksgiving.” Democrats in the media — New York Times, Washington Post — insisting the Democrats want to slow down the impeachment process in order to sharpen their case.
“The fact is that Schiff has moved off of Ukraine. Trump releasing the transcript of that phone call effectively wiped out Schiff’s plan to use that phone call as an impeachable offense. The transcript’s been released. The whistleblowers, whatever they say and regardless how many there are, have been rendered irrelevant.
“Meanwhile, Trump is outperforming them in fundraising, and there’s internal polling on the Republican side suggesting that this impeachment thing is losing ground among Democrats and independents and don’t think that Schiff and his buddies, Pelosi, haven’t seen that data.”
