It’s the reason Schiff was so very careful to exclude certain witnesses, even refusing to release transcripts from those whose testimony the Republicans wanted to cite.
It’s also the reason that Schiff and Nadler both scheduled the morning recess when they did: AFTER the Democrats asked questions of the witnesses and BEFORE that witness had been cross-examined.
They needed to rush their spin out to the media before the cross-examination could refute it. It also means that the conversation between the pundits would include the Democrat questions, but NOT the cross-examination.
It let Democrats push out their propagandistic spin. They HAD to. Here’s why:
Proverbs 18:17 “The one who states his case first seems right, until the other comes and examines him.”
The first one to plead his cause seems right, Until his neighbor comes and examines him.
You may think you have won your case in court, until your opponent speaks.
And isn’t that EXACTLY what happened?
They sent out their spin, but then the Republicans came along and asked the devastating questions. The ones where the witnesses against him admit they have no first-hand information. or that they are NOT claiming to have evidence of the President doing anything specifically nefarious.
Matt Gaetz summed the whole issue up very well in his conclusion here:
"If wiretapping a political opponent is an impeachable offense, I look forward to reading that inspector general's report, because maybe it's a different president we should be impeaching."@RepMattGaetz goes off on today's impeachment hearing. pic.twitter.com/bKKLYCniOS

The wheels are falling off of the impeachment bus… but they’re mashing the pedal to the floor in hopes they can still get it to limp over the finish line.
But then what? Then they’ll be in an environment where they won’t be in control, and all the showboating and lies will grind to a halt.
Leaving their ridiculous lies exposed for exactly what they are.
Pelosi can wrap it up in ‘love’ and ‘patriotism’ all she wants. We all know the truth.
They want their power back and Trump is standing in their way.
Get Doug Giles’ new book:
Rules For Radical Christians is not a survival devotional designed to help the young Christian adult limp through life. Rather, it is a road-tested, dominion blueprint that will equip the young adult with leadership skills and sufficient motivation to rise to a place of influence in an overtly non-Christian culture. Rules For Radical Christians gives the reader the keys to become strategically equipped to move into an anti-theistic environment and effectively influence it for the glory of God.
