President Trump said Republican congressional leaders to get tougher and fight. He made the statement Monday at a cabinet hearing. Up to this point, he seemed to be in the minority in the fight against impeachment with Democrats. Finally, it seems his words were heard and Republicans are listening.
On Wednesday, House Republicans stormed into the closed door hearing. Rep. Matt Gaetz led the charge of House Republicans into the close door session demanding to be included. Rep. Adam Schiff did not say anything and simply left the room. Other Democrats spoke out against the actions of their Republican counterparts.
Even with the backlash, Republicans stood firm in their protest of the hearing. While Republicans have made statements about the inquiry, this marks the first time that they actually took a more aggressive stance against the actions. President Trump put out a tweet of the event that they held apparently happy with the support.
Democrats are trying to deny Republican Members of Congress access to Schiff's secret impeachment proceedings. What are they hiding??

Questions still remain surrounding the whistleblower and the lack of knowledge surrounding the complaint. After information presented involving Rep. Adam Schiff and his involvement, Democrats seem to have went into hiding over the impeachment craze. The promised vote has yet to happen and there seems to be no plan in place.
Republicans will capitalize on this and it comes at the right time. Recent polling data shows that the American public is not in support of impeachment of President Trump. Democrats have lost 10 points among their base in support of impeachment. The American people understand this is a political show and Democrats have no plan.
Making this stand immediately led to the left wing media to start crying about how Republicans threatened national security and were nut jobs. The childish left wants you to believe this is an issue about impeachment. Articles of Impeachment must pass through the House Judiciary Committee, not the House Intelligence Committee. Democrats have repeatedly claimed that the impeachment inquiry was started in the Judiciary committee, so they are in violation of the routine process by moving this to the intelligence committee, no matter what AOC or anyone else says.
Important to remember that GOP&Dem members have been part of impeachment depositions this whole time.
All you need is to sit on the relevant committees.

Whether or not you agree with President Trump, you must agree that the proper rules/challenge of impeachment be followed. If they want to impeach Trump, so be it. It should be done the right way. In the end, the American public is tired of your games and is ready for you to actually do your jobs.
