On Episode 117 of War Room: Impeachment Raheem Kassam broke down how the impeachment has been shady from its beginning with the whistleblower to the Democrats’ newest star: Lev Parnas.
“Let’s take a step back from Rachel Maddow and Anderson Cooper,” Kassam said, referencing interviews Parnas gave Wednesday night. “Look at how this process has been run so far.”
He explains: “The impeachment process starts with an anonymous whistleblower who’s not on the call. It goes to a partisan office, it goes to Adam Schiff’s office. It goes to a secret SCIF in the Capitol basement where private depositions are happening. It goes to a public set of hearings that are monumentally unpopular with the American people. Then it goes to a delay. Against all of the claims of urgency that we’ve heard from Nancy Pelosi, and Jerry Nadler, and all the crew, and all the media, and all the blue check marks – ‘it’s urgent, clear and present danger, got to get rid of this President,’ – they delay it.”
“Now we’re hearing from a guy who is out on bail, who runs a company called Fraud Guarantee, Inc., who claims to be an ‘asset,’ and who claims to have brought the Yovanovitch thing to the attention of the President – not the other way around.”
“You have CNN, MSNBC colluding with Pelosi and Parnas to intervene in a Senate trial.” A trial which, Kassam emphasized, is “perhaps one of the most sacred things that Senators can take part in per their Constitutional role, per the founding documents of this country.”
“If this process was run fairly, if this process was run transparently you wouldn’t have had secret depositions. You would be able to freely talk about the whistleblower. You would be able to call him up to the trial. You would be able to have these Parnas documents. These four hundred pages they dropped last night and the fifty-eight pages they dropped the night before, you would have had those for months. Instead it’s Pelosi who’s had those for months. It’s Schiff who’s had them for months.”

“Let’s not forget [House Democrats] were releasing call records,” Kassam continued, “of members of Congress; of reporters; of Rudy Giuliani, the President’s lawyer. This is an incredibly shady thing that we have got going on here. And the Parnas stuff is the icing on the cake. It’s another shot across the bow of the Constitution.”
“It’s another shot by the Democrats and their media collaborators in saying, ‘hey, we can do whatever we’d like. We can run this process however we’d like. And there’s not one damn thing you guys can do about it.’ That is so important for people to understand,” Kassam highlighted.
“There will be people out there that support the impeachment process; that want everything to come to light; that support the idea that an investigation should be had. Fine. That’s your prerogative if you believe that. But you have to believe, in tandem with that, that the process should be fair, should be open, should be transparent.”
“There are plenty of Washington, D.C. reporters that listen to this show – and we thank you for doing so. But any reporters who are listening to this: how can you with clear conscience go up there everyday and claim that this process has been a fair one. How can Anderson Cooper not push back against Lev Parnas when he says, ‘oh, I’m not here to debate.’ This is absurd.”
“This is a dereliction of duty from the media class. This is a dereliction of duty from the Democrats.” Kassam emphasized he believes the impeachment process is “appalling and will go down as one of the worst periods in U.S. history.”
