Today’s Campaign Update, Part II
(Because The Campaign Never Ends)
Here is a Republican House member who is unafraid to speak the truth. – Texas Congressman Michael McCaul, who has represented Texas’s 10th congressional district since 2005, appeared this morning on Fox News for an interview with Bill Hemmer. This interview is well worth the watch just because of who McCaul happens to be.
As you watch the clip below, and/or read the transcript that follows, keep in mind that Rep. McCaul is a man who is currently the ranking GOP member on the House Homeland Security Committee. From 2012 through 2018, McCaul served as the Chairman of that committee. This is a man who knows where all the bodies are buried, and who has no naivete about what Adam Schiff and San Fran Nan are really up to with their fake impeachment scam. First, here’s the clip:
We found someone that actually has a set. @RepMcCaul calls out Shiff for exactly what is going on. Shiff & Co. have concocted this whole flim-flam-sham to force impeachment. These are serious charges. @BillHemmer made sure what he heard, he heard right. Pretty bold statements. pic.twitter.com/i0tMKNuUWJ

For those of you who, like me, still like to read stuff, here is a transcript of this clip:
Hemmer: You were in that deposition yesterday. I know you’re not gonna say a lot – did Adam Schiff shut down your Republican colleagues in their questioning of the witness or not?
McCaul: Yeah, we haven’t objected to any of their questioning. On the other hand, Adam Schiff continues to shut down Republicans’ lines of questioning. On important issues, in terms of who was privy to the phone call, who was with the whistleblower – anything close to the whistleblower gets shut down.
I think the whistleblower is probably the most important witness, because it’s one person in Washington who launched this entire impeachment inquiry, and yet we have no access to him, we can’t talk to him, we don’t know who he is, and he won’t testify.
Hemmer: So, what’s the strategy behind Adam Schiff trying to keep you from answering those questions you just laid out?
McCaul: I have my own thoughts about that. [crosstalk] I personally think that what’s come out in the press, that there were conversations between Adam Schiff and his staff and the whistleblower, and that this complaint was all a contrived, you know, concocted event that took place to move forward with impeachment proceedings.
Hemmer: You say ‘contrived’ and ‘concocted’? What was contrived and concocted?
McCaul: Complicit. In other words…
Hemmer: In what way? Just be specific. This is, this is of the highest import here. He was complicit in what, sir?
McCaul: I think they were complicit in working with the whistleblower to come forward with his complaint and start this entire impeachment inquiry. I think that’s why Adam Schiff is so protective of the whistleblower, because he is concerned about the truth that will come out if we get access to him.
Hemmer: Uh, the suggestion there is that the whistleblower ultimately, or even the witnesses along the line may not be that credible in the end. [Noooooo…you think?] Is that the suggestion you’re offering now?
McCaul: The best evidence is the phone call itself, which I don’t think is worthy of an impeachment proceeding. But I, my theory is that Adam Schiff and his staff had access to the whistleblower, and were complicit with this complaint being filed, which started this entire charade, this entire impeachment inquiry.
Folks, Michael McCaul is not a guy who just spouts off random accusations and theories. Nor is he one of the GOP’s rabble rousers in the house. McCaul is a guy who is always very careful and measured in this public statements.
When he publicly says that it is “my theory” that Schiff and his staff basically put the whistleblower up to it in order to create fake grounds for this impeachment scam, it’s because he basically knows this to be the case.
This little 2:18 interview is a signal that even the most careful and self-restrained members of the GOP house caucus have grown weary of Shiff’s and Pelosi’s scam and have not been moved in any way by their parade of fake whistleblowers and partisan hack witnesses.
A very good sign. Maybe even a key inflection point.
That is all.
