House Minority Leader Rep. Kevin McCarthy, R-Calif., on Sunday said the the chamber’s impeachment inquiry vote was “not due process.”
In an interview on CBS News’ “Face The Nation,” McCarthy blasted the process, and Intelligence Committee head Rep. Adam Schiff, D-Calif.
“The people deserve to know the facts, the truth and the accountability,” he said, adding: “What we voted on Thursday is not due process. There’s no transparency. … four days later the dems are right back at it… more depositions that people can’t see… they made Adam Schiff the judge, the jury and the prosecutor.”
McCarthy also blasted the whistleblower whose concerns about the July 25 phone call between President Donald Trump and the Ukraine president kicked off the impeachment inquiry.
“I think that democracy is too precious to think that somebody who’s not on a phone call, that cannot stand before the American public and answer the question, that somehow we would change the course of that,” McCarthy said.
“I think that the whistleblower should come forward in an open hearing … he can come down to the basement, but he needs to answer the questions," he added.
Asked by Brennan which witnesses Republicans would like to call, he replied: “I would bring in Adam Schiff and his staff.”
“The removal of the president of the United States, this should not be taken lightly. We deserve to know all the facts… we need accountability,” he said.
