As we told you earlier, House Intelligence Committee chair Adam Schiff took a short break from the impeachment hearing to read something Trump had just tweeted about the witness, former Ukraine Ambassador Marie Yovanovitch:
Schiff asks Yovanovitch to respond to Trump's tweet, posted during her hearing, claiming that everywhere she worked "turned bad"

And with that, Schiff and the Democrats are now trying to make a case for witness intimidation.
Tammy Bruce has seen more than enough:
The president tweeting his opinion about someone & defending himself isn’t ‘witness intimidation.’ This entire proceeding is a farce & to assign any seriousness to it is absurd. All participating should be ashamed of themselves. This will not serve Democrats well in 2020. https://t.co/dFaqLN2FrS

Former George W. Bush press secretary Ari Fleischer Ari Fleischer agrees.
Schiff is guilty of witness tampering, Yovonavitch had no idea of Trumps tweet!

Schiff is the one tampering.
