(TNS) Presidential counselor Kellyanne Conway laid down a gauntlet of sorts on Monday in response to House Judiciary Committee Chairman Jerrold Nadler’s invitation to the White House to show up Wednesday while he continues the Garbage Party’s impeachment charade.

And like the trouper she is, Conway said she’d be happy to show up on behalf of President Donald Trump, who will be in London for a NATO conference.
But only on one condition: House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff (D-Calif.) show up as well so he can be deposed.
“I’ll tell you what, if Adam Schiff testifies, I’ll show up on behalf of the White House,” Conway told reporters at the White House.
At WH, @KellyannePolls says House Judiciary needs to be more definitive about its hearing witnesses, but if @RepAdamSchiff testifies about the impeachment inquiry, she says she'll show up on behalf of the White House. pic.twitter.com/NqIOYVrAlT

Several Republicans have said they want to call Schiff as a fact witness in any impeachment proceeding, either in the House or, perhaps, the Senate if impeachment makes it that far, because he’s been a player in this charade since the get-go.
On Sunday, the Judiciary Committee’s top Republican, Rep. Doug Collins of Georgia, became the latest member of the GOP to say that Schiff ought to testify.
“The first and foremost person who needs to testify is Adam Schiff,” Collins told Fox News’ Chris Wallace, adding that Schiff had “compared himself to a special counsel.”
“[Schiff] has put himself into that position … If he chooses not to [testify], I really question his veracity and what he’s putting in his report,” Collins added in an interview with “Fox News Sunday.”
“It’s easy to hide behind a report… but it’s going to be another thing to actually get up and have to answer questions about what his staff knew how he knew, what he knew about the whistleblower report,” Collins said.
We won’t hold our breath, but it’s good to see Republicans on offense over this nonsense for a change.
