The Democratic party hosting the impeachment hearings for Donald Trump holds no such evidence that they claim to be in possession of. Schiff employs misdirection and confusion while he attempts to convince the American people that opinions are evidence, while the facts are not. Meanwhile, through this process, perceptions have been distorted through clever manipulation by the Democratic party.
Schiff has become the master manipulator he is not allowing full access to the whole picture for us (the American people) to see for ourselves the witnesses the Democrats have called in Trump’s impeachment investigation. We have no allowance to view transcripts of depositions or review testimonies that imply the incrimination of the president. That, of course, would ruin all the nonsense he’s created.
Republicans have spent weeks struggling to uncover the hidden plays that have taken place. They have now partially succeeded by pressuring Nancy Pelosi into a resolution for a full House vote on the since partisan and unjust proceedings that are deprived of due process. This new procedure will put in place some fundamental rules of fairness and transparency that have been requested by Republicans and the American people.
Take, for example, William Taylor’s testimony. He is the acting ambassador to Ukraine. Schiff and his snakes leaked to the media outlets that Taylor swore that Trump wanted to deny U.S. military aid to Ukraine unless Zelensky vowed to investigate all possible corrupt acts Joe Biden and his son.
However, It appears that Taylor’s testimony was not from any personal knowledge. It appears to have been his interpretation obtained from communications by others who had not had their own knowledge of the phone call. In other words, it was a theory built on speculation.
There is no mention of a “quid pro quo” for U.S. military aid in trade for an investigation on the Bidens or anyone else for that matter. There has been no demand, no condition, and no obligation.
Zelensky, under oath, declared there was no blackmail committed while on the call, and no pressure applied to him whatsoever. “Nobody pushed me,” Zelensky answered. “We had a great phone call,” he continued. “It was normal.”
During a conference on Tuesday, House Republican leaders announced House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff, stopped a witness amid an impeachment hearing from answering particular questions from the Republican party.
Both Steve Scalise and Jim Jordan informed reporters that Schiff declined the Republican party their right to cross-examine Alexander Vindman while he was giving his statement.”When we asked [Vindman] who he spoke to after important events in July. Adam Schiff abruptly interrupted, “no, no, no, we’re not going to let him answer that question.” Jordan said.
Jordan went on saying that Schiff appeared to be going against his own rules for the hearings, suggesting the chairman was acting almost like a “lawyer” for Vindman instead.
“It’s clear Pelosi needs to declare a mistrial,” House Minority Whip Scalise stated. “This has been a tainted process from the start. What happened today confirms even worse just how poorly Adam Schiff is handling this process, denying the ability for Republicans even to ask basic questions that are critical to the heart of whether or not a President of the United States is impeached.”
All in all, there are 435 members of Congress inside the impeachment inquiry, and only one of them holds the answer to who the whistleblower is. This impeachment inquiry is the only one “in the history of our country” that has taken place behind closed doors and under such severe rules.
While the Do nothing Dems think every question, the Republicans have for the witnesses is to figure out who the whistleblower is not the case. “We’re trying to figure out who the witness is.” Stated Jordan.
Schiff disputed any questions from Republican GOP lawmakers Tuesday. While Democrats were arguing that it was an effort by conservatives to expose who the whistleblower is. Republican’s response was they were trying to get information on who Vindman spoke with that lead to such thoughts.
The change led Pelosi and fellow Democrats to announce Tuesday that they would move with a floor vote on Thursday. The House will vote on rules and guidelines with the impeachment of Trump. Pelosi wants Americans to see every part of the trial for President Donald Trump. The hearings are expected to give more regard to what lawmakers have been overhearing in private regarding Trump’s use of his power.
“They want transparency like a hole in the head, for crying out loud.” Stated Dem. Bill Pascrell, of N.J. “Transparency is not going to help them.”
That’s precisely what Trump is asking of his fellow Republicans. Until this week, when the unified GOP message revolved around criticizing Democrats for conducting closed-door hearings when typically that protocol is used for conversations involving classified matters.
President Trump’s had some success in persuading Republicans to dismiss their argument that the hearings should be held out into the open. Rather than justify his actions, Republicans are now fighting, as House Minority Leader McCarthy has, that any further findings are “fruit from the poisonous tree.” The fact that Republicans believe that the early process was unethical to Trump. Most will also continue to make McCarthy’s argument that the president did not engage in a “quid pro quo” with Ukraine. The fact is there was not an exchange of one advantage for another and were no impeachable crimes committed.
On Tuesday, New Jersey Rep. Jeff Van Drew announced he would probably vote against the resolution.
Meanwhile, Max Rose, D., who is a big supporter of the impeachment inquiry, explained the process argument, conducted by McCarthy and Scalise, “wasn’t working out because it was a weak one.”
Before the Ukraine story developed in early September, Pelosi was holding off her liberal flank’s, along with her requests to move quickly on the impeachment. It would likely have needed significant support to approve a resolution like the one. Now Thursday, Pascrell said Pelosi and the rest of the Democratic party are in a much different situation than they were in just a few months ago.
