Andrew Napolitano reminds Fox and Friends that all the rules Adam Schiff is following were written by Republicans during the Clinton years. Womp, womp.
October 17, 2019

Andrew Napolitano reminded Fox and Friends viewers (those who don't change the channel when he appears because they don't watch TV that doesn't comport with the brainwashing they get the rest of the show) that Republicans wrote the rules on impeachment proceedings during the Bill Clinton years. Uh oh.

ANDREW NAPOLITANO: ...the White House lawyers, "You can't issue a subpoena until there's a vote." Well, the Republicans changed the rules when John Boehner was Speaker of the House, allowing each individual committee to issue subpoenas, without a House-wide vote. So those subpoenas are valid, and people who resist them, ignore them, put them in a drawer, do so at their peril. If you get a subpoena that asks for something that you don't think you should have to produce, you have to challenge the subpoena, you can't ignore it.

It's so much worse than that.

Republicans are living in a big world of KARMA these days. They greased the skids when they were in power, and now whine about "the process" when their GUILTY president self-impeaches on the White House driveway.
