Mister President! My dear colleagues! As the last speaker in such a debate, please allow me to make a preliminary remark: the level and understanding of the rule of law were in some places here today, sorry, really difficult – very, very difficult. It was an abuse of the plenary – I say that so clearly -;

(Oliver Krischer [BÜNDNIS 90 / DIE GRÜNEN]: That’s exactly the right person!)

We were able to convince ourselves of this at this point.

Ladies and gentlemen of the Greens, the only one who is always there and working on the committee of inquiry was not allowed to speak to you. Those who talked with big mouths who haven’t done a scrap of work yet.

(Applause from the CDU / CSU and the AfD as well as from members of the SPD)

Dear colleague Krischer, it is always the same: you open your mouth here, and when it comes to the files and the details, you will not be seen.

(Contradiction of the delegate Oliver Krischer [ALLIANCE 90 / THE GREENS])

– Yes, that is a certain understanding that is just difficult.

You have used the word “truth” so often. I’ll start with the story now: Of course, the Greens agreed to the toll, and the leftists were also there. I only say: Thuringia. You always don’t want to know any of that, but it’s part of the truth, dear colleagues.

And, dear colleague – I don’t know you yet,

(Merriment – Dr. Christian Jung [FDP]: You have known her since today!)

but that doesn’t matter – I can just explain to you: The colleague Lühmann,

(Dr. Christian Jung [FDP]: You obviously already know them!)

With whom I have worked very well for several years now, my colleague Bartol, with whom I also work very well again and again, helped negotiate this toll. Justice Minister Maas, foreign minister in his own right, has approved the toll. The chairman of the group – I do not know which one it was, we had seen you change over and over again – signed the toll. The party chairman Sigmar Gabriel, whom you no longer want to know, also signed. If you look into your party’s history, you will know that you are part of this infrastructure fee. The SPD should be proud of it and not attack them here today.

(Applause from the CDU / CSU and the AfD)

Ladies and gentlemen, it is obvious that the whole thing here today is a show maneuver: 3,000 files, 1 million sheets, 10200 files from the operators, four pieces of paper public, and the Republic is talking about them; The republic does not talk about the rest, especially not about 10,200 files from the operators, which are not accessible to the public at all. So: Anyone who thinks that they can do politics with a slip or two and be able to find the truth – I say quite frankly again – is abusing this plenary session today.

(Applause from the CDU / CSU)

Ladies and gentlemen, the whole thing has something of prejudice, and prejudice is actually unworthy of parliamentarians. I specifically use the word “unworthy”.

(Applause from members of the CDU / CSU)

When I look into the ranks of the FDP: I once really had respect for this party.

(Shout from the AfD: Oh!)

Maybe I even chose you as a lawyer once because I believed in the rule of law party FDP.

(Oliver Krischer [BÜNDNIS 90 / DIE GRÜNEN]: What? – Shout from Abg. Dr. Christian Jung [FDP])

– I said: maybe. – If I look in the direction of the Greens, then it will not be enough to call it the “rule of law party”.

Dear colleagues of the FDP,

(Michael Theurer [FDP]: What is the truth now? Did you vote for the FDP or not? – Dr. Christian Jung [FDP]: You love the FDP, admit it! You probably even vote secretly!)

Section 33 PUAG states that we have to make a final report. That is exactly what we have to wait for, and you don’t want that. Section 24 PUAG tells you what a comparison is. Do not misuse the word “cross-examination”. The Americans are cross-examined, and unfortunately the Americans are currently living on fake news.

(Applause from the CDU / CSU)

Dear colleague Özdemir, you really have nothing to do with the committee of inquiry, but apparently with the economy. And you think you can then judge who is telling the truth and who is lying? It is remarkable that you are here today, of all people, who want to take sides and defend them who were the subject of a minor request from your party in the Bavarian State Parliament on September 30, 2016 regarding criminal proceedings based on the sale of black market tickets.

(Oliver Krischer [BÜNDNIS 90 / DIE GRÜNEN]: What are you talking about?)

Anyone who talks about honorable merchants must look at the entire history of the individual people, ladies and gentlemen; That is also part of the assessment when you say so confidently: someone is lying and someone is speaking the truth.

(Applause from the CDU / CSU)

Ladies and gentlemen, the testimony of the witness Schulz – dear colleague Krischer, the witness Schulz broke one thing for you: the show – was in line with the rule of law. It is part of the rule of law that those who have attended an appointment may testify as witnesses.

(Oliver Krischer [BÜNDNIS 90 / DIE GRÜNEN]: Why don’t you say that three weeks in advance?)

And if you don’t want a witness, then it shows that that witness may be bringing a testimony that doesn’t suit you.

(Oliver Krischer [BÜNDNIS 90 / DIE GRÜNEN]: He made a great statement!)

But whoever works on the truth must hear everyone. That is our task; we are now going back from the plenary to the committee of inquiry. We are looking for the truth, and we are definitely not going to find it here at this current hour. Unfortunately, it was a classic example of plenary abuse.

Thank you very much.

(Applause from the CDU / CSU and Deputy Dr. Alexander Gauland [AfD])
