Democrats in a closed-door hearing with Tim Morrison, who resigned his National Security post as a White House adviser on Russia and Europe Wednesday, "look like they're sucking lemons" as his testimony opened Thursday, Rep. Mark Meadows claimed Thursday.
"I can tell you much of the Democrats talking points down there are really ringing hollow today because what we know is that it has not been a fair process,' the North Carolina Republican told Fox News' "America's Newsroom." "It has been a closed-door process. I've been in almost 70 hours of testimony right now and all that is leaked out are the things that are damaging to the president of the United States."
But with Morrison's testimony, "they aren't going to leak it out," said Meadows, without specifying what had been said.
"I think what's happening is we're now at a little over 10 witnesses that we've had come in and all of a sudden what you are starting to see is some contradictions between witnesses," said Meadows. "You are starting to see a different side of the story," he said. "What we are finding and what your viewers need to understand is that each time that the witnesses are asked about holding up aid and was it held up for improper purposes, the answer is no."
Meanwhile, he rejected the idea that Republicans are getting their way with a vote to set rules for opening the impeachment inquiry.
"This is not a fair process," said Meadows. "It allows Adam Schiff to once again control everything that is going on. If we're talking about a fair, open, transparent process, let's make sure that we actually have due process. Let's hear from some of the allegations of the whistleblower."
Many of the whistleblower's allegations have been "directly contradicted by not one, not two, but multiple witnesses behind closed doors," said Meadows. " It is time that we allow the truth to come out. When we do, we'll find that the president of the United States did not -- I would emphasize did not commit any impeachable offense."
