    • Broken out separately, here are the Republican members of Adam Schiff's committee:

      • And here is Judge Andrew Napolitano's response to complaints about the secrecy of the hearings:

        After Republican members of the House literally stormed the gates of the impeachment hearings on Wednesday, Judge Andrew Napolitano stopped by Fox & Friends Thursday morning to deliver a harsh wake-up call: Democrats are just “following the rules”—rules written by Republicans.
        “I read the House rules,” Napolitano said. “And as frustrating as it may be to have these hearings going on behind closed doors—the hearings over which Congressman Schiff is presiding—they are consistent with the rules.”
        Speaking more slowly, Napolitano told him, “Well, they can’t change the rules, they follow the rules.” He went to explain that those rules were last written in January 2015 when Republicans held the majority and the Speaker of the House was John Boehner.
        “The rules say that this level of inquiry, this initial level of inquiry, can be done in secret,” Napolitano said, effectively dismantling the primary talking point of both Fox News and the Trump White House. “Secret evidence doesn’t work in this world, so eventually there will be a public presentation of this,” he added, “at which lawyers for the president can cross-examine these people and challenge them.”
        “So I get it, the Republicans are frustrated, they wanted to make a point and they made their point, but this is just not the most effective way to show respect for what your colleagues are doing,” Napolitano said.
        As the Fox & Friends hosts continued to protest, he added, “I know this is going to sound weird, these are not the impeachment hearings. The impeachment hearings have to be held in public by the House Judiciary Committee. This is the initial interview of witnesses to see what they have to say, to determine whether or not they are even worthy of presenting evidence of impeachment.”

          Wonderful! Is it not?

            • And these two can go through life complaining (dare I say whining?) that there are no Republicans permitted within the closed doors.
              That's what happens when you limit the source of your information to friendly sites.
              Trump just canceled his subscriptions to a couple of unfriendly newspapers so he would read only good news.

              • Here is a summary of the proceedings thus far.
                It looks like Trump is getting hammered on all fronts, and he's saying, "I am the team."

                • With regard to the killing of the ISIS leader, the Democrats are complaining that they were not informed in advance of the raid.
                  Ir is possible that Trump did not know in advance either, because the Pentagon feared that he would be tweeting about it too soon.
                  He was playing golf at the time, and returned to pose for the picture in the situation room pretending to be watching the raid in progress, like Obama watching the raid that killed Bin Laden.

                  • He did not tell them because Washington leaks like a sieve. Soldiers lives were at stake.

                    • Trump is the biggest leak in Washington.
                      The Pentgagon was dismayed by how much information he released about the raid, making future raids more difficult and more dangerous.

                      The Israelis did a great job of hampering the Iranian nuclear program several years ago, simply by killing their nuclear scientists in Iran, one by one, quickly and quietly, until the Iranians caught on.

                      • The President needs to have the okay from Congress to declare war, he does not need to have the House to have any knowledge of a terrorist raid. Tell the damn POS in the House to fornicate themselves, especially pelosi !!!

                        • Well, the Trumpsters will be getting their wish.
                          They have been whining that the process was unfair without a formal vote on an impeachment inquiry by the House.
                          That vote will come sometime this week.
                          They will now have to find another excuse to obstruct the inquiry.
                          I have a feeling we will soon be hearing the word, "kangaroo" again.

                          • Moving right along, Trump is beginning to grasp the seriousness of his situation.

                            • After weeks of listening to the White House whining about the secrecy of the impeachment hearings, we learn today that the Republican members of Adam Schiff's committee have been seeking to learn the identity of the whistle-blower by asking Col. Vinland under cross-examination whom he spoke with after listening in on the infamous July 25th phone call.
                              That would include the whistle blower, and serve to intimidate future whistle blowers.
