Rep. Matt Gaetz Calls Schiff ‘a Malicious Captain Kangaroo’ of Impeachment ‘Kangaroo Court’

Published

It’s getting ugly on Capitol Hill.

After President Donald Trump branded House impeachment efforts to be a “kangaroo court,” one of his most vocal allies in Congress turned the phrase into a weapon against House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff.

To Republican Rep. Matt Gaetz, Schiff is behaving like “a Malicious Captain Kangaroo.”

Gaetz dropped the insulting-but-apt description during an impromptu news conference, where Republican representatives were taking questions after the State Department refused to allow the U.S. ambassador to the European Union, Gordon Sondland, to testify before the committee.

Gaetz told reporters Schiff’s track record during the Trump administration has not inspired trust.

Check out excerpts from the news conference here. (At a little over two minutes, the whole thing is worth watching as Rep. Jim Jordan of Ohio speaks, but the Gaetz statement starts about the 1:35 mark.)

Gaetz reminded the media:

During the years of investigation by special counsel Robert Mueller into alleged Russian “collusion” with the Trump campaign, Schiff repeatedly said he knew of evidence that never appeared.

When the “whistleblower” arose regarding Trump’s conversation with the president of Ukraine, Schiff was not honest about his committee staff’s contacts with the still-anonymous whistleblower. (He was so dishonest, in fact, that even the Trump-hating Washington Post noticed.)

And in a more recent twist, Schiff and his Democratic colleagues have held off on releasing the full testimony given last week by Kurt Volker, the former U.S. special envoy to Ukraine.

Volker, who testified Thursday behind closed doors, contradicted the Democrats’ impeachment story on several counts, according to The Federalist.

And Gaetz and other House Republicans have had enough.

“We would sure like to see the Volker testimony released before we continue the depositions and transcribed interviews. And what we see in this impeachment is a kangaroo court, and Chairman Schiff is acting like a malicious Captain Kangaroo,” Gaetz said.

“He lied about the Russia investigation, that he had more than circumstantial evidence,” Gaetz said.

“He lied about meeting with the whistleblower, prior to the whistleblower’s ultimate … writing of their complaint.

“We would like to unpack the last set of Schiff lies regarding the Volker testimony before we go to the next set of Schiff lies, on Sondland or any further witnesses,” Gaetz said.

To anyone paying attention, Schiff has established that he has — at best — a casual relationship with telling the truth.

And when Matt Gaetz called him on it Tuesday, it was a beautiful thing to see.

    Good to see that the Republicans are getting behind our president and pushing back on the Democrats. Schiff needs to go, he has broken the house rules many times and gotten away with it, this needs to stop!

      Adam Schifty, Schiftless Schitt, (among many others). not only needs to be impeached for being a criminal co-conspirator in a criminal conspiracy to overthrow the legally elected Government, but he also needs to be sentenced to 59 years of hard labor in a high security federal prison. Adam Schitt is a paid-for tool of George Soros, who PUBLICLY STATED THAT IT WAS HIS INTENTION TO DESTROY THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA. Adam Schitt also needs to be soaked in molasses and rolled on his Southern Californian sandy beach and run up highway 101 until he drops..
      Also ‘Booker Da Hooker, the Racist, College, ADMITTED, Rapist, needs to have his nose smeared in the constitution so perhaps he will learn SOMETHING, he never learned.
      SOMEONE, PLEASE CALL ROTO ROOTER TO CLEAN OUT THE SEWAGE IN THE FBI, CIA, CONGRESS, DEPARTMENT OF STATE, AND THE REST OF THE DEEP POOPOO EMBEDDED IN OUR GOVERNMENT AGENCIES.

    When you see evil you see the first four at the top of the democratic party and the lies start to flow out before people start jumping off yhe band wagon. So we did not see the whistleblower yet so is their really any First they say one and no one believe then they say another one pops up and we still have not seen any. You can put it on paper but seeing and hearing can only mean their is no one and the democrats are trying to pull wool over our eyes. TRUMP 2020

      I watched Glenn Beck’s You tube video and it is well worth watching; he explains everything in great detail giving you the facts that there was indeed DNC collusion before and up to the 2016 election. Not any collusion with President Trump!!! Need to view!!

  • BOB says:

    THE UNITED STATES AND UKRAINE HAVE A TREATY OF “MUTUAL LEGAL ASSISTANCE” SIGNED BY BILL CLINTON IN 1998. OBAMA AND KILLARY SENT BIDEN TO UKRAINE TO USE THAT TO BRIBE POROSHENKO TO MAKE UP TRASH AGAINST TRUMP, AND KEEP BIDEN JR. OUT OF PRISON. JOE BIDEN USED THAT OPPORTUNITY TO EXTORT A $10 MILLION KICKBACK FOR HIMSELF. THIS IS AMERICAN’S MONEY. TRUMP WAS ON LEGAL GROUND TO DISCUSS LEGAL ISSUES WITH YELENSKY.
