House Democrats are still determined to impeach President Donald Trump from office over his July 25th phone call with the Ukrainian president.
While House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff is trying to conduct the impeachment inquiry in secret and behind closed doors, several of his witnesses have actually blown major holes in the Democrats case for impeachment.
Schiff’s committee, which Democrats have a majority on because they control the House, voted to release a transcript with key testimony in the impeachment witch-hunt against Trump.
Needless to say, the White House has already responded with fire and fury.
The transcript reveals that Kurt Volker, the former U.S. envoy to Ukraine, testified under oath that there was no quid-pro-quo between Trump and Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky.
When asked whether Trump threatened to cancel a meeting with Zelensky in exchange for an investigation into Ukrainian election meddling in 2016, Volker unequivocally denied this occurred.
“The answer to the question is no, if you want a yes-or-no answer. But the reason the answer is no is we did have difficulty scheduling a meeting, but there was no linkage like that,” said Volker.
Volker also dismissed claims that Trump was after “dirt” on Biden and denied allegations that the president sought to “manufacture” dirt on the former vice president.
“No,” Volker responded when asked about the allegations.
“I’ve seen that phrase thrown around a lot. And I think there’s a difference between the manufacture or dig up dirt versus finding out did anything happen in the 2016 campaign or did anything happen with Burisma. I think – or even if he’s asking them to investigate the Bidens, it is to find out what facts there may be rather than to manufacture something.”
White House press secretary Stephanie Grisham set the record straight with a fiery statement:
Both transcripts released today show there is even less evidence for this illegitimate impeachment sham than previously thought. Ambassador Sondland squarely states that he ‘did not know, and still does not know when, why or by whom the aid was suspended. He also said he ‘presumed’ there was a link to the aid–but cannot identify any solid source for that assumption.
Two top officials with firsthand knowledge of Trump’s July 25 Ukraine phone call also testified and absolutely destroyed the Democrats sham impeachment.
Former NSC Senior Director for European Affairs Tim Morrison, who listened to Trump’s call with Zelensky, testified that the president did not discuss anything illegal during the conversation.
Morrison testified that Ukrainian officials didn’t know certain U.S. military funding had been delayed by the Trump administration until late August 2019, which was more than a month after the Trump-Zelensky call.
This destroys the Democrats argument that Trump told Zelensky on the July 25 that he had to reopen the investigation into the Biden’s shady family business deals in order to receive the military funding.
Philip Reeker, one of the top U.S. diplomats to Europe, also testified this week that he had no knowledge at all that U.S. security aid was withheld to pressure Ukraine’s president to investigate Biden.
As more information is released, things keep getting worse for lying Schiff and Democrats.
