Rep. Doug Collins shredded Democrats who “leapt to conclusions” before getting all the facts about President Trump’s call with the Ukrainian president.

The Georgia Republican leveled a scathing rebuke of his Democratic colleagues in a statement Wednesday, following the release of the transcript of a phone call between Trump and Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky that took place in July.

“The transcript between President Trump and Ukrainian President Zelensky reveals that Democrats have again leapt to conclusions before looking at the facts,” the Ranking Member of the House Judiciary Committee said in a statement.

“There was no quid pro quo and nothing to justify the clamor House Democrats caused yesterday. The real danger here is that Democrats keep using baseless accusations in hopes of crippling a successful presidency,” he added.

Following House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s announcement Tuesday of an impeachment inquiry, Collins tweeted that her “decree changes absolutely nothing.”

Collins slammed the “partisan” impeachment in a full statement on Tuesday.

“No matter how many Democrats subscribe to the fantasy that the House began an impeachment inquiry—whether in March, July, August or September—neither Chairman Nadler nor Speaker Pelosi have unilateral authority to launch one,” he said.

“This is the first partisan ‘impeachment’ in the history of the republic, and the real victims are the American people. They elected Donald Trump to be our president and their representatives to solve the border crisis and support a growing economy,” he added.

“Instead of accepting those facts, Democrats are sowing chaos, not producing legislative solutions. The chaos began in the Judiciary Committee, and now it’s seeping into the rest of the House,” Collins said.

Speaking with “Fox & Friends” on Wednesday,” Collins called out what he described as a “perpetration of a fiction upon the voters in America.”

“What they want them to believe is that they’re up here doing something that they’re not simply because they hate this president,” he said of Democrats, adding that he wants to “scream” at reports that the House has begun an impeachment inquiry.

“We’ve not started anything,” he said, noting that Pelosi reportedly told her caucus Tuesday that “really nothing’s changed but we’re just going to keep pushing the narrative.”
