In a series of tweets on Tuesday night, Rep. Mark Meadows, R-N.C., picked apart several sections of the impeachment investigation report released by House Intelligence Committee Chair Adam Schiff earlier that day.

In a statement accompanying the release of the 300-page document, Adam Schiff, along with Oversight Committee Chairwoman Carolyn Maloney, D-N.Y., and Foreign Affairs Committee Chairman Elliot Engel, D-N.Y., said that the “evidence is clear” that the president “used the power of his office to pressure Ukraine into announcing investigations” that were “designed to benefit his 2020 presidential reelection campaign,” that he “conditioned official acts on the public announcement of these investigations,” and that he “engaged in categorical and unprecedented obstruction in order to cover-up his misconduct.”

Shortly after the House Intelligence Committee voted to approve the report and send it to the House Judiciary Committee in a party-line vote, Meadows, the former House Freedom Caucus chairman, countered several of the report’s assertions with public evidence turned up in the process of the House’s impeachment probe.

Meadows’ lengthy Twitter thread begins with a critique of the timeline of the report’s release before delving into the various points made in the document, which he called “300 pages of nonsense, with far too many problems to address individually.”

“Democrats can write what they want, but they can’t provide any serious evidence supporting this latest conspiracy theory. And they know it,” Meadows wrote in conclusion. “This Democrat impeachment effort is (and will continue to be) baseless and nakedly partisan. Americans will see through it.”
