House Democrats are digging a hole so deep for themselves that they may well be unable to claw their way out, said Rep. Devin Nunes (R-Calif.).

Speaking with Martha McCallum on “The Story” on Monday, Oct. 21, Nunes explained why the Democrats would try to avoid a public impeachment trial.

“There is a lot of things that happened last week, but the thing that is most important that people are not paying attention to, the whistleblower is now gone, right? Nobody wants to hear from the whistleblower. The Democrats don’t want to hear from the whistleblower,” said Nunes. “Well, wait a second, I thought the whistleblower was the person who had the evidence?” said Nunes.

“The facts are not adding up for the Democrats. Right now, they can be on an impeachment high that I like to call it with all of the mainstream media throwing gasoline on the fire, but eventually, the truth comes out,” Nunes continued. “And right now, there is a lot of hearsay. There is no transcript. There is an unprecedented secrecy.”

McCallum pressed Nunes, “So will this sort of get rammed through without anybody ever seeing the transcripts that you are talking about or even see the evidence or will we get to a moment where there is a vote in the House, and you see some of these people testify in an open way so that the American people can watch this process for themselves and make up their minds?”

McCallum replied, “I don’t think they can. There’s not enough time for the Democrats to do that. The Democrats don’t want to do that. Remember what I said, they’ve got themselves between a rock and a hard place. They poisoned the American people on Russia. Then they said Mueller was going to really deliver the goods; he didn’t. Then they said they would continue the Russian investigation. That didn’t work out.”

With the Ukrainian hoax, they were unable to produce any witnesses to bear out the facts presented by the whistleblower, who “now we can’t interview,” said Nunes.

Americans want to see the evidence; they want it to be all laid out, to decide for themselves. Where is the transparency?

Nunes added, “ At the end of the day if there is impeachment, this goes to the Senate. There is going to be a public trial. So they are playing with fire here.”
