It's "concerning" that House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff will not be testifying in Monday's Judiciary Committee meeting about evidence in the impeachment proceedings against President Donald Trump, as he "prided himself on being a special prosecutor," House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy said Monday. 

"It's interesting to me why he would not testify after we found out he had met with the whistleblower," the California Republican said on Fox News' "Fox and Friends." "What he is doing to try to intimidate people and misusing his power to go after and put people's phone logs out is unbelievable."

However, the House leadership moved the initial impeachment inquiry to Schiff rather than the House Judiciary Committee, as they thought its Chairman Jerrold Nadler was "inept." 

Schiff, meanwhile, dislikes Trump so much that he'd "lie and lie and do anything" to impeach him, said McCarthy. 

Further, he complained that House Speaker Nancy Pelosi "already had a timeline" on impeachment, including knowing the date when she wanted to impeach Trump "right before the end of the year."

"The only thing they didn't have was proof," said McCarthy. 

He also commented that the case is "completely stacked" against Trump. 

"It is the rule of the House, always has been...the minority gets a minority hearing," said McCarthy. "(If) you request it, you get one, but do you know what's interesting? Devin (Nunes) requested this in Intel and they never had it yet. (In) Judiciary they should have it before they move forward with anything else."

However, a special resolution was passed that "gives them all the cards," said Mcarthy. "That controls how they ask the questions."
