Democrats are hell bent on using their own version of a call President Donald Trump made to Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky in July to press ahead with impeachment. He was requesting a probe of his political rival Joe Biden and his son Hunter who were entangled in questionable dealings with the government.
They also have their own version of events surrounding the call, concocted in the ‘whistleblower’s so-called complaint. It reads just like the Russian dossier former special counsel Robert Mueller used to investigate the president in 2017, a little bit of truth sprinkled on top of a heap of lies.
Like the dossier, the fabrications were woven in such a way that it will take too much mental effort for many voters to unravel, especially when large sectors of the media will be assisting Democrats with pushing its propaganda.
The country is sadly being dragged through another hoax, akin to the hell unleashed during Mueller’s investigation. Trump was not indicted and forced out of office during that process, so they are bent on using the power an impeachment inquiry will bring to finally topple him.
Several bedwetting Republicans, instead of standing with the president in his legitimate use of his powers under Article II, are pushing the Democratic talking point that his request for Zelensky to probe Biden was inappropriate.
Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff turned a Thursday hearing with acting Director of National Intelligence Joseph Maguire about the whistleblower’s complaint into a fiasco. He dramatically read a fake version of Trump speaking with Zelensky.
“And what is the President’s response — well it reads like a classic organized crime shake down, he began as Republicans protested vociferously.” In essence, what the President Trump communicates is this: We’ve been very good to your country. Very good. No other country has done as much as we have. But you know what, I don’t see much reciprocity here. You know what I mean? I hear what you want. I have a favor I want from you though. And I’m going to say this only seven times, so you better listen good,” read Schiff from his make-believe script.
“I want you to make up dirt on my political opponent, understand? Lots of dirt, on this and on that. I’m going to put you in touch with people, and not just any people. I’m going to put you in touch with the Attorney General of the United States — my Attorney General, Bill Barr — he’s got the whole weight of American law enforcement behind him. And I’m going to put you in touch with Rudy, you’re going to love him. Trust me. You know what I’m asking, so I’m only going to say this a few more times, in a few more ways. And don’t call me again. I’ll call you when you’ve done what I asked,” read the shifty chairman.
Was his fraudulent script what he would have said if he were president? He has been running the committee like a Mafioso. It absolutely destroyed any chance Democrats had of being taken seriously about their accusations that Trump was engaged in any impeachable acts during his phone call.
The hearing was convened to address serious accusations, and the acting director of national intelligence expected to be cross examined in accordance with procedures, but the chairman turned out to be a corrupt buffoon.
Schiff came under fire from White House officials and the media for his juvenile stunt. He claimed it was part parody, but on Friday the president called for him to resign.
“Rep. Adam Schiff fraudulently read to Congress, with millions of people watching, a version of my conversation with the President of Ukraine that doesn’t exist. He was supposedly reading the exact transcribed version of the call, but he completely changed the words to make it sound horrible, and me sound guilty,” he tweeted.
New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo (D) attended a bipartisan event with former New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie on Thursday. He lamented that the impeachment probe would create total gridlock in Washington. The nation was headed “down a very long and unproductive road, said Cuomo.” He predicted that the president would not be removed from office.
Former Ohio Governor John Kasich (R) also sounded the alarm on CNN’s New Day with anchor Alisyn Camerota. Impeaching Trump for “one phone call” seemed foolhardy, he said. “This is not a light matter. If all of a sudden everybody can be impeached, then it has no power, said Kasich.
