Quotes from the news wire:
In his opening remarks, the Democrat chair of the Rules Committee said that Republicans last week voted to overturn the results of an election. Guess who the first objector was on Jan. 6, 2017? first objector, the Democrat chair of the Rules Committee. And guess what state he objected to? Alabama, the very first state called.
Theyre not imaginary, theyre real ... to have the chair of the Judiciary Committee, on the House floor, say ... these words ...imaginary things like Antifa. They are far from imaginary. And there are people in every major city in this country whoknow that and yet the chair of the Judiciary Committee just made that statement. That is scary.
The idea that I wouldn't stand up for these athletes is ridiculous, i feel sorry for these guys, the fact that they aren't telling the truth.

Now, there is one witness that Chairman Schiff won't bring in front of us. Chairman Schiff won't bring in front of the American people. And Chairman Schiff's the guy who started Chairman Schiff all. The whistleblower, only Chairman Schiff knows who Chairman Schiff is. We don't. We will never get the chance -- we will never get the chance to see Chairman Schiff raise his right hand, swear to tell the truth and nothing but the truth -- we'll never get that chance. More importantly, the American people will never get that chance.
Written answers will not provide a sufficient opportunity to probe all the relevant facts and cross examine The Whistleblower. You don't get to ignite an impeachment effort and never account for your actions and role in orchestrating it, we have serious questions about this individual's political bias and partisan motivations and it seems Mark Zaid and Adam Schiff are attempting to hide these facts from public scrutiny. Last week's testimony raised even more concerns about the anonymous whistleblower and our need to hear from Mark Zaid and Adam Schiff, in person.
The closed-door depositions, Ill still be able to be a part of, but then when they go to the open hearings, its just the Intelligence Committee. Adam Schiff gets 45 minutes under the resolution that passed on Thursday to ask questions. The rest, the members get five minutes. Adam Schiff gets to call the witnesses Adam Schiff wants. But Republicans have to first submit a list to Adam Schiff to get his approval for any witnesses we or the White House might want. So you can try to put a ribbon on a sham process, but that doesnt make it any less of a sham. It doesnt make it any less unfair in any less partisan. In a contentiousHouse Rules Committee meetingthat lasted into the night last week, Democrats systematically rejected GOP attempts to alter theground rules that lawmakers will use as they consider impeachment.

The vice president's son gets paid $ 50,000 a month and gets hired by a company in an industry Jim Jordan has no experience in and oh that's fine ? try taking that message to the American people... When they see the vice president's son getting paid $ 50,000 a month in a field, in an industry he has no experience in... And then when the company that's paying that money is under investigation, guess what ? Daddy comes running to the rescue. The vice president of the United States comes running in and says,' Fire that prospector.'.
Two things Jake Tapper look at to determine the credibility of a so-called whistleblower when they're coming forward, first, did they have firsthand knowledge ? And second, what is their motivation ? Was there some kind of bias ? This individual has problems on both of those counts. He had no firsthand knowledge, he heard something from someone who may have heard something from someone.

What I'm concerned about is Republicans are not doing what we told the American people we would do. We won elections in 2010, 2014 and 2016 on repealing Obamacare, this bill doesn't get all the way there, but it's a good step, and I think the best step, the best we can get out of the House right now.
Justin Amash is Justin Amash and one of the most principled members of Congress, and, frankly, if Justin Amash is primaried, I'm going to do everything I can to help him.Richard Painter, a White House ethics lawyer under former President George W.

This bill that the House leadership has brought forward is not that, it says we're going to repeal Obamacare, but we're going to keep Medicaid expansion and we're going to extend it. It says we're going to repeal Obamacare, but we're going to keep some of the tax increases. That's not what we told the voters we were going to do. Let's repeal it, let's repeal it all.
Forty-seven Democrats said they were for it, the chairman of the Homeland Security Committee says ISIS is exploiting it, and we're not going to put it on the omnibus, but we may put in a special provision to help campaign finance for the political parties? do you think the American people are going to like that? Of course it has to go on the bill.
