Rep. Doug Collins Friday blasted House Judiciary Committee Chairman Jerrold Nadler for delaying the vote on two articles of impeachment until Friday, accusing him and other Democrats of wanting to play the vote until a time when more viewers would be watching.
"I think it's called Democrats and television cameras is what happened last night," the Georgia Republican and ranking committee member told Fox News' "Fox and Friends." "They got tired. They said Chairman Nadler made a calculation to get it to another morning and drag this out a little bit further because they have nothing on this president."
Thursday night, just before midnight and after a marathon 14-hour session, the committee's vote on articles of impeachment was postponed. The committee is to reconvene at 10 a.m. Friday, and approval of the charges of abuse of office and obstruction of Congress is still expected.
Collins was furious Thursday night about the delay, shouting that "this is the kangaroo court that we’re talking about, adding that he had not been consulted on the decision to delay the vote. “They do not care about rules, they have one thing, their hatred of Donald Trump. ”
Friday morning Collins told Fox News that "we proved all day yesterday that the facts are just wrong."
"They are on the wrong side of history," he added. "Last night, to be, I guess, cute by half they said we will put this off to go prayerfully (and) consider what we're going to do at 10 a.m. They have not prayerfully considered anything for three years. They wanted to consider something this happened."
