A conservative radio host said that House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff (D-Calif.) has “lost all credibility” as a “fair arbitrator” in the impeachment inquiry process of President Donald Trump.
During a Sunday appearance on MSNBC’s “Meet the Press,” host of “The Hugh Hewitt Show” Hugh Hewitt said that “the most important thing” that has happened in the morning, at that point, was that Schiff went “full ‘Alice in Wonderland’ Queen of Hearts” by giving a “verdict first” and going to “trial later.”
He continued to blast the House Intelligence Chairman as having “destroyed his credibility” during his appearance on the show as “a fair arbiter” during the impeachment inquiry process.
“I believe he destroyed his credibility this morning on this show as a fair arbiter of this process,” said Hewitt.

Hewitt went on to point out that the “middle” of political America is getting “tired” of the investigations into the president and that “the most interesting part” was that — by moving to launch an impeach inquiry into Trump for his July phone call with Ukranian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy — Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) had implicitly conceded that former Special Counsel Robert Mueller‘s report had “no impeachable offense.”
“The key other thing about is there enough time, is there a middle, that middle is tired of investigating President Trump. It has gone on for two years and the most interesting part of the Nancy Pelosi decision to go for a fast impeachment is the implicit but very real concession that the Mueller report had no impeachable offense, no obstruction, no collusion. It’s gone.”
Schiff had claimed in his earlier interview on the program that the “gravamen of the offense” was that Trump was “using the power of his office to coerce a foreign nation into helping his presidential campaign to once again interfere in our election.”
