GOP member of the House Judiciary Committee Ron Cline used a "Star Wars" analogy to explain why the impeachment inquiry hearings beginning Monday against President Trump will fail, in an interview Monday morning with Fox News anchor Sandra Smith asked.
Smith asked Cline about "the big difference in the look and feel of the hearing happening on Wednesday, compared to the 31 hours we saw before the Intel Committee. [Judiciary] Chairman Jerry Nadler has a very different style of Adam Schiff, chairman of the Intel committee. What do you expect from him and how he will lead this hearing on Wednesday?"
REP. RON CLINE: With the Mueller report, look at it this way: We had "Star Wars." The Empire got destroyed just like the Mueller report got destroyed.
The sequel is here. It’s "The Empire Strikes Back," or as we like to say, "The Intelligence Committee strikes back, Adam Schiff strikes back." But we all know how the story ends.
The rebels win. Ultimately the president will be exonerated and we don’t anticipate any reason to go forward with these hearings.
