Representative Adam Schiff has taken control of the impeachment inquiry into President Trump.

Schiff has made it his goal to investigate Trump and he has been caught in many lies on his journey to get Trump.

On Thursday, Schiff received another setback in his impeachment crusade.

According to The Daily Wire:

House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff (D-CA) reportedly suffered a “disappointing” “setback” on Thursday in his efforts leading the Democrats’ push to impeach President Donald Trump.

“Former U.S. Envoy to Ukraine Kurt Volker on Thursday spent hours testifying with congressional investigators who are seeking to discover if he played any role in Trump’s efforts to obtain from Ukrainian officials information on the son of 2020 presidential hopeful Joseph R. Biden Jr.,” Roll Call reported. “About two-and-a-half hours into Volker’s deposition, Jim Jordan, an Ohio Republican and founding member of the House Freedom Caucus, emerged and told reporters that Schiff wanted to limit certain members from questioning Volker and that the California Democrat had barred State Department lawyers from participating in the closed briefing.”

Fox News reporter Brooke Singman tweeted: “NEW: per a source with knowledge of ongoing #Volker interview: ‘The information provided by Amb. Volker so far does nothing to advance @RepAdamSchiff theory of the case. Volker’s testimony seems to be a disappointing event –and likely a setback–for the #impeachment effort.'”

Fox News reporter Chad Pergram tweeted: “Schiff when he emerges from Volker interivew: I won’t have any comments about the interview so it’s concluded.”

  The Democrats have given their confidence to Adam Schiff to lead the impeachment effort despite his questionable past which includes many lies.

It will be interesting to see how this gamble works for them.
