A skittish Daniel Goldman – the Democrats’ lead counsel on impeachment – cowered when confronted by Rep. Doug Collins (R-GA) over the Democrats’ release of the phone logs of President Trump, his lawyer Rudy Giuliani, reporter John Solomon and his sources, and Minority Committee leader Rep. Devin Nunes (R-CA).
The release of phone logs has angered civil liberties campaigners and journalists alike, as a potential abuse of government power of subpoena in a partisan impeachment inquiry.
“Who ordered the match game?” Rep Collins asks, to which Goldman (eventually) replies: “I’m not going to get into the deliberations of our investigation with you… I am going to go on record and tell you I am not going to reveal how we conducted this investigation”.
“We’re done,” Collins retorts.
Who ordered subpoenaed phone numbers be connected to members of Congress and journalists? Adam Schiff or Daniel Goldman?
Who ordered those names be released to the public? Schiff failed to show. Goldman refused to answer. pic.twitter.com/SZ0O82FQjW
