Rep. Louie Gohmert, R-Texas, refused to ask witnesses questions during his time at the Judiciary Committee testimony. Instead, he criticized Goldman and how the impeachment inquiry has been handled. Gohmert even says, "We already got the forms. All we have to do is eliminate Donald Trump’s name ...

And regarding treason, the constitution itself says you got ta, have two witnesses and that's that's not hearsay witnesses. None of this stuff that wouldn't be admissible in any decent court. No, that's too direct evidence, witnesses that can come in and positively identify themselves, not something they overheard or some, but actually be witnesses to treason. And yet this group comes in here they ...
toss treason out in a report like it's no big deal. We can bring in a bunch of hearsay witnesses and then we'll have the lawyers testify and then throw a president out of office. This is so absurd. It'S so absurd! Now we have witness come in and we're told he's going to be awitness. That'S why he doesn't have to follow under the rules of decorum, and then i've never seen this. He gets to come up and grill his opposing adversary. Witness i feel like to be fair if we were gon na make this thing fair, mr. kaster would be able to come up and grill mr. burke, but this isn't about being fair, it's not about due process.

This is about a kangaroo system and let me tell you those that think you've done something special here. You have set the bar, so low, i'm afraid it's irreparable. I mean just think. We'Ve had people already mentioned. You know the next president, joe biden, we're told you know gee, he maybe the next president. Well, we've already got the forms. All we have to do is eliminate donald trump's name and put joe biden's name in there because he's on video he and his son. He basically has admitted to the crime, that's being hoisted on the president improperly, so i'm scared for my country, because i've never seen anything like this. This is this is supposed to be the congress. I came up here from a court where we had order and we had rules and i've seen nothing of the kind in here today and outrageous that we're trying to remove a president with a kangaroo court like this out your back chair. But if i could justclarify treason is not in our report, i just want the gentleman the gentleman yield it back yeah and it is mentioned in the report. We got.
