House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy criticized the vote in the House of Representatives on October 31 to formalize the impeachment inquiry against President Donald Trump during Sunday’s edition of “Face the Nation.”
McCarthy singled out House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff, telling CBS’s Margaret Brennan that the rules of the impeachment inquiry made Schiff “judge, jury and prosecutor” of the process.
“They now made the Intel committee the impeachment committee. They now control even further about which Republicans can even ask questions. They made Adam Schiff not only a fact witness, but he’s the judge, the jury and the prosecutor. That is unheard of.” McCarthy said.
