(TNS) Since they control the House, Democrats were able to conduct impeachment inquiries into President Donald Trump in any way they wanted, fair or unfair, right, wrong, or indifferent.
But now House Intelligence Committee chair Adam Schiff (D-Calif.), whose hearings were held largely in secret so he could [allegedly] selectively leak information to waiting members of the Garbage Party media, seems concerned that once the impeachment process moves to the GOP-controlled Senate for a trial, Republicans will get to make the rules.

And the process will be much more fair, clearing the president in record time while exposing Democrats for the political hacks they are.
“I think there are any number of witnesses that should be called in the Senate trial, and many witnesses the American people would like to hear from that the administration has refused to make available,” Schiff complained to ABC’s “This Week” host George Stephanopoulos.
Rep. Jerrold Nadler, chairman of the House Judiciary Committee, which held hearings last week, also spoke to Stephanopolous and made similar complaints.
Mind you, House Republicans also had a long list of witnesses they attempted to call but were not permitted to do so. They were barely able to question Democrat witnesses.
“And perhaps of equal and if not greater importance are the thousands and thousands of documents that the administration refuses to turn over,” Schiff continued. “I would hope that every senator of both parties would like to see the documentary evidence.”
The Trump White House turned over reams of documents and made staffers available for hours and hours of testimony to Robert Mueller’s merry band of Democrat-donating prosecutors, and it got the president nowhere.
So this time around, Trump is declaring executive privilege in most instances, which, of course, was just fine and dandy when Barack Obama was claiming it in the “Fast and Furious” congressional probe (which a federal judge eventually overturned).

If anything, Schiff and Nadler ought to be happy Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) isn’t planning on holding the impeachment trial in a secret room in the basement of the Capitol Building.
That wouldn’t be right.
