House Judiciary Committee Ranking Member Doug Collins (R-Ga.,) asserted that Democrats “have nothing” to impeach President Trump and people will “see a lot of theatrics from Adam Schiff.”
Collins told Fox News that the Democrats are trying to “hide” that they have no evidence to show President Trump did anything illegal in terms of Ukraine case.
“I think what we’re going to find out is really … they’re hiding the fact that they have nothing on the president,” he said.
“They’re hiding the fact to everybody that … when they’ve done these interviews that it’s shown that there was nothing improper on the call, that in fact President Zelenskiy and President Trump both said there was no pressure [on] both ends of this.”
“That he asked proper questions when we’re called on as a government to make sure that corruption doesn’t exist in a country we give aid to—even if it happens to be a former vice president and his son,” said Collins.
Collins said the discussion to investigate 2020 hopeful Joe Biden and his 49-year-old son Hunter were valid in that regard, and that President Trump was acting responsibly.
He predicted Democrats will attempt to “spin” the situation to help their plan.
“They’re going to put the witnesses together so you really can’t even take your time to delve into each of them individually,” Collins said.
“The drama here is just dripping. It’s crazy … I think you’re going to see a lot of theatrics from Adam Schiff,” Collins continued.
Collins noted Adam Schiff and other Democrats are scared that they will not be able to defeat Trump electorally in 2020 and must therefore find another way to beat him.

Meanwhile, Schiff has braced himself against GOP lawmakers and committed himself to protect the whistleblower and the Biden family from scrutiny at public hearings of Trump impeachment inquiry started on Wednesday, Nov. 13.
“As explained in my November 9, 2019, response to the ranking member, it is important to underscore that the House’s impeachment inquiry, and the committee, will not serve as venues for any member to further the same sham investigations into the Bidens or into debunked conspiracies about the 2016 U.S. election interference that President Trump pressed Ukraine to undertake for his personal political benefit,” Schiff asserted in a memo addressed to the committee as to establish the rules of the Democrat-led hearing.
“Nor will the committee facilitate any efforts” by the president or his allies “to threaten, intimidate, or retaliate, against the whistleblower,” Schiff added.
