Rep. Eric Swalwell (D-CA), who sits on the powerful House Intelligence and House Judiciary committees, warned on Thursday that there is “direct evidence” that “very key witnesses” in the impeachment inquiry are “talking to each other.”
Swalwell explained that’s a problem because “we don’t want them to tailor their testimony to each other, we don’t want them to manufacture alibis, so we’re trying to protect the information as much as we can before we bring it forward to the public.”
“We want the unvarnished truth,” he continued. “We don’t want the ‘truth’ that protects you or shields you from culpability, and that’s why we’re doing this in a closed fashion – closed to the public, not to the 120 members of Congress, Republicans and Democrats, who have access to the room.”
JUST NOW: "We have evidence, very recently, that there are witnesses in our case who are talking to each other."
