This week marks phase two of the House Democrats’ crusade to reverse the 2016 election by impeaching President Trump with Adam Schiff ready to deliver his report to the Judiciary Committee.

But shifty Schiff still has a lot of explaining to do over his secretive Soviet-style proceedings to oust the leader of the free world about the bogus claims of quid pro quo and bribery with the newly elected president of Ukraine.

If Rep. Doug Collins gets his way, the California Democrat will have to answer some serious questions under oath before rabid and bloodthirsty Democrats get their lynching all wrapped up just in time for Christmas.

As the ranking member for the House Judiciary Committee, the Georgia Republican is demanding that Schiff put up or shut up and on Sunday morning, he went on Fox News to call for the bug-eyed Bolshevik to be at the top of the witness list when the minority party gets to mount a defense of the POTUS.

Rep. Doug Collins (R-Ga.) said Republicans on the House Judiciary Committee would have House Intelligence Chairman Adam Schiff testify in their impeachment hearing and claimed the parameters of the impeachment investigation were skewed against the president.

“If he chooses not to” testify, Collins said Sunday of Schiff (D-Calif.), “then I really question his veracity in what he’s putting in his report.”

The Intelligence Committee is expected to release its report on its impeachment investigation Monday. If the committee votes Tuesday to approve the findings, the Judiciary Committee will begin hearings Wednesday to draft articles of impeachment. Collins is the ranking Republican on the Judiciary panel.

Speaking with host Chris Wallace on “Fox News Sunday,“ Collins complained that Judiciary Chairman Jerry Nadler (D-N.Y.) gave Republicans on his committee an unrealistic timeline to digest the findings of the Intelligence Committee’s report. Collins said Nadler gave them until Friday to present a list of witnesses to testify, which he said was too soon after the expected release of Schiff’s findings.

“Why are they hiding the stuff from us?” Collins said. “If they think they have such a case, give us all the materials and don’t let Jerry Nadler write a crazy letter that says on the 6th, let us know who your witnesses are. We don’t even have the information from the Intel Committee yet. This is why this is a problematic exercise and simply a made-for-TV event coming on Wednesday.”

Which FREE Trump gift would you like us to send you?

Collins and his fellow Republicans can submit their witness lists but it’s almost a certainty that Dem Judiciary Committee impeachment overlord Jerrold “Fat Jerry” Nadler will refuse to accommodate their requests.

By allowing Schiff or any of the other key witnesses like Hunter Biden, Eric Ciaramella, Alexandra Chalupa and even former Vice President Joe Biden to take the oath and risk blowing their scam to smithereens.

However, once this despicable sham makes its way to the Senate it may be an entirely different story and Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Lindsey Graham has already made it clear that Rep. compelling Schiff’s testimony would be of the utmost of importance and last week tweeted:

With the Democrat Grinches hellbent on rushing matters in order to placate their perpetually angry base to deliver this garbage just in time to wreck Christmas, it is likely going to be a different story when Republicans are able to run an honest game when this crazy train reaches the Senate.

Enough of this farce!
