UNITED STATES—Congress heard testimony on day two of the impeachment hearings against President Donald Trump on Monday, December 9. Reporter and radio show host Owen Shoryer was arrested and removed for interrupting the proceedings. Shroyer hosts “The War Room.”
“Jerry Nadler and the Democrats are committing treason, and you can kick me out, but he’s the one committing crimes. You are Jerry Nadler. We’re not going to sit here and watch you run an impeachment scam and remove our vote,” said Shroyer.
Chairman of the House Intelligent Committee, Adam Schiff was not present for Monday’s proceedings. In opening remarks, Rep Jerry Nadler said:
“No matter his party or his politics, if the President places his own interest above those of his country, he betrays his oath of office.” Nadler said multiple times during the hearings: “President Trump put himself before country.”
Rep. Louie Gohmert and Rep. Andy Biggs interjected for a point of inquiry. Gohmert stated, “It’s a point of Inquiry” to which Nadler responded, “He will not shout out in the middle of testimony.
Rep. Collins replied: “You need to call balls and strikes right away. You do not interrupt either one of them, Mr. Chairman. You’re the commissioner for the witness.”
Rep. Matt Gaetz spoke about Congress having a 9 percent approval rating, stating this impeachment hearing is, “Bringing out the worst of us.”
He asked Daniel Goldman who has given thousands of dollars to the Democratic party if he thought if he gave hundreds of thousands of dollars like lawyer Barry Berke did if he would be able to ask and answer his own questions. Gaetz later argued that Goldman was a partisan witness at a bi-partisan impeachment. He cited the November jobs report where 266,000 more jobs were added.
Collins asked Goldman:
“You’re a great attorney, but where is Adam Schiff?”
Congress presented two articles of impeachment against President Donald Trump on Tuesday, December 10. The articles include obstruction of justice and congressional interference. A potential vote on the articles of impeachment has not yet been announced by the House of Representatives.
