Earlier today thirty Republican House members, led by Rep. Matt Gaetz (R-FL), stormed into the Sensitive Compartmented Information Facility (SCIF) where Adam Schiff (D-CA) has been conducting Democrats’ secret impeachment inquiry.
1) A group of House Republicans are now staging what amounts to a “sit-in” in the secure, House Intelligence Committee rooms.

Republicans have grown disgusted by the appalling one-sided reporting coming from the mainstream that repeat liar and leaker Schiff’s account of proceedings as though they’re the gospel.
So they stole a page from the playbook of the righteous left and decided that a little civil disobedience might draw attention to the sham political coup dressed up as an impeachment in search of a crime.
(Fox News) Republicans said they took the dramatic step to storm the deposition because Democrats’ impeachment inquiry hasn’t been transparent.
Scared Schiff-less, the committee chairman was reported to have immediately fled the scene.
House Republican Whip Steve Scalise, R-La., claimed that House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff then “fled with the testifying witness” when roughly 50 Republicans went “face-to-face and demand access to ongoing impeachment proceedings.”
-No Agency or WH counsel
-Most Members of Congress not permitted
-Scheduling simultaneous interviews
-Minority and WH denied due process
And now Republican committee members can’t read transcripts without Dem staff present.

• Why don't we know who the whistleblower is?
• Why is this so-called #impeachment "inquiry" being ran secretly in the basement of the U.S. Capitol?
• Why are the American people being left in the dark?@RepAdamSchiff owes us all answers. pic.twitter.com/1NZUqq9Fwz

435 Members of the House.
Only one knows who the “whistleblower” is and who their sources are: @RepAdamSchiff.

WATCH: @RepMattGaetz shows House Democrats are "intent to overturn the results of an American election," saying the impeachment probe has "been marked by secret interview, selective leaks… and lies." pic.twitter.com/NDtrrGwn0H
