Rep. Rogers’ report from Washington: What is happening behind the closed doors?

WASHINGTON, D.C. — The big story in Washington right now is happening behind closed doors.

House Democrats continue to conduct this sham of an impeachment in a manner that is not open to the public or the media. The only news every-day Americans are allowed to have is cherry-picked by the radical Democrats and then filtered through the prism of the left-leaning media.

Congressman Adam Schiff, chairman of the House Intelligence Committee, is leading the bogus witch hunt by holding secret partisan meetings and leaking it to fake news outlets. This is after he blatantly lied to Congress and the American people by reading a made-up transcript of the phone call between President Trump and Ukraine President Zelensky. This is on top of covering up contact with the so-called whistleblower.

I joined over 125 of my Republican colleagues on Rep. Andy Biggs’ resolution to censure Chairman Schiff’s dishonesty.

As this one-sided, rigged sham of an inquiry continues, Speaker Pelosi announced she will not follow House precedent by holding an inquiry vote on the House Floor.

All of these dishonest actions clearly demonstrate that the Democrat majority will lie and break the rules to try and impeach our president.

When the Democrats took majority of the House of Representatives this Congress, they promised to do the people’s work, but all they do is waste their time on a sham witch hunt.

It all boils down to this: President Trump was fairly elected by the American people and the Democrats just cannot accept it. They will stop at nothing to try to undo the 2016 election and it is a shame.

I will continue to stand strongly with President Trump and fight House Democrats every step of the way.

U.S. Rep. Mike Rogers is a Republican from Saks.
