Laura Cooper, Pentagon official overseeing Ukraine, testifies in impeachment inquiry after GOP delay
The House Parliamentarian ruled that the GOP members were in violation of House deposition rules, according to an Intelligence Committee official.
By Alex Moe and Rebecca Shabad


"House rules only allow members to participate in depositions if they serve on the committees holding the depositions, which in the case of the impeachment inquiry are the House Intelligence, Foreign Affairs and Oversight committees."
"Taylor told impeachment investigators that President Donald Trump directed officials to tie aid to Ukraine to demands that the country open an investigation into the Biden family and the 2016 election, a potentially serious blow to Trump's repeated denials of a quid pro quo."
"Clearly the White House was devastated by yesterday's testimony, and these witnesses have been willing to defy the administration and follow the law and come testify," Schiff said. "So, the president's allies are trying to stop them through other means but they won’t be successful."

It is a dire shame that Republicans had to be so disruptive to the legal process taking place in the House. But they are running very scared now and are trying anything and everything to stop the impeachment inquiry but in the end it will continue successfully. Democrats will not be intimidated by the childish pranks of those right-wing attention-getters that refuse to follow the rules.
