The Democratic Party’s use of the Republican-abused tools of closed-door hearings has driven the Grand Old Party mad. On Wednesday, a few dozen ornery old white guys in boring suits threatened our national security and put on a political stunt to hold up the impeachment inquiry proceedings. The brouhaha ended up being reported across all media platforms and, for the most part, conservatives involved were justifiably chastised. On Thursday, Fox & Friends had on Fox News legal analyst Andrew Napolitano to give some … legal analysis, I guess? Unfortunately, while Fox News’ pundits have brains made out of the asphyxiated dreams of greedy newscasters, some facts are hard to get around.

ANDREW NAPOLITANO: I’ll tell you what I did for you, [Fox & Friends host Brian] Kilmeade, I read the House rules. And as frustrating as it might be to have these hearings going on behind closed doors, the hearings over which Congressman Schiff is presiding, they are consistent with the rules.

Now, Brian Kilmeade is a man who does not like hearing that his feelings do not match up with logic, and he responded, “They can make up any rules they want.” Which…isn’t exactly what’s happening now, Brian.

NAPOLITANO: Well, they can’t change the rules, they follow the rules. And when were the rules written last? In January of 2015. And who signed them? John Boehner. And who enacted them? A Republican majority.

Napolitano goes on to explain that, while we all want to see these things, this “level of examination” is allowed to be carried out behind closed doors.

Kilmeade got very quiet after that.

Judge Napalatano is like an adult teaching kids about the Constitution on Fox. No matter how much he points out legitimacy by congress the children kick and scream and say no and go back to their lame conspiracies about deep state theories.

It never ceases to amaze me the ultimate stupidity of republicans. Here the morons changed the rules so they could cheat democrats and are amazed when democrats turn the tables and use their own rules against them. You just can’t fix stupid.

When were they enacted ?
..All by Republicans. Now they want to crybaby
about what they did .
..But actually it’s camouflage , because they know Trump is guilty of not only illegally trying to force a foreign government , to help dirty up a political opponent, but sending illegal ( Rude Rudy ) his lying attorney to try (to create) this information.
…Trump and his cohorts are in trouble, and they know it , and so does the Republican party
that’s become (lier’s by proxy )!

The judge has been fantastically wrong on just about every one of his predictions for the last 3 years. He’s a laughingstock. He’ll be wrong about this also.
