House Republican Conference chair Rep. Liz Cheney, R-Wyo., is calling on House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., to release the transcripts of closed-door impeachment inquiry depositions.
In a letter Friday, the No. 3 House Republican argued the vote on a resolution laying out the procedures for impeachment doesn’t bring transparency to the process.
“Despite the vote in the House on October 31, House Democrats continue to conduct the partisan effort to impeach the President in secret,” Cheney wrote.
“Your duty to the Constitution and the American people, as well as fundamental fairness, requires that you immediately release the full transcripts of all depositions taken since you pronounced the beginning of an impeachment inquiry on September 24, 2019,” she added.
Cheney also railed at “the selective leaking in which the House Intelligence Committee has been engaged,” writing it “must end immediately and the full and complete record must be provided for the American people to see.”
"In addition, to the extent that you make any redactions in any of the transcripts, all Members of the House must be supplied copies of the full and unredacted transcripts," she wrote.
According to The Hill, one unnamed senior GOP House source said “you can expect a bunch of our members to be sending similar letters in the coming days.”
House Intelligence Committee Adam Schiff, D-Calif., told CNN he expects to begin releasing transcripts “as early as next week.”
