    What do you think our resident liberals would be saying if it was the Democrats demanding open hearings, and the Republicans insisted on keeping them secret?

The "open" hearings scheduled for next week really aren't open in the sense that Schiff is retaining complete control of the process as the one who has final say in what witnesses are called and what they're allowed to say on the stand. If the Democrats weren't afraid of the truth then they would have allowed these hearings to be fair and open from the start.
    Yes, I live in the real world, MM. You live in the world you're told to live in.

    Trump, congressional republicans, rogue and yourself are going to get what you've been asking for, even though they've now changed their minds and no longer want open hearings. Hope you'll be watching!

    As long as Schiff maintains complete control of the hearings, including having final say on which witnesses can be called, and what questions they'll be allowed to answer, then they can't be called truly open.

    Sure they can, they will be truly open hearings for the public to judge for themselves, which, after all your ranting and raving, you are now running from.

    Not at all. I'm glad the public will get to see what a sham it all is.

    I note, however, that POTUS -- who has never been accused of excessive consistence in messaging -- recently opined that the hearings should not be public.

    They would be walking lock step in with the Democrats narrative and saying the Republicans have something to hide.

    Don't forget who it was that set the House rules in the first place. That's right, it was the republicans in 2015. And in their "proven to be a sham" Benghazi hearings the most of the testimony was in private sessions.

    Today democrat Representative Eric Swalwell appears on Face The Nation to discuss his ongoing efforts as part of the impeachment agenda. Within the interview Swalwell has a little Freudian slip highlighting how the House is manufacturing witness testimony:

    [@01:17] REP. SWALWELL: "These witnesses have been fairly consistent. And for the most part, they’ve not been coordinating or talking to each other."

    Whoops: “for the most part“? Thereby Mr. Swalwell admits the witnesses are coordinating some testimony.
