Everyone with a brain and the ability to think for themselves knows that impeachment is about having a temper tantrum over the 2016 presidential election, and now the Ukrainian foreign minister has proved it.
Vadym Prystaiko the foreign minister of the small nation that used to be a part of The Soviet Union, confirmed on Thursday that aid for his nation was never tied to investigating former Vice President Joe Biden and his son Hunter Biden.
He said that United States Ambassador to the European Community Gordon Sondland never linked military aid to his nation to any type of investigation.
“Ambassador Sondland did not tell us, and certainly did not tell me, about a connection between the assistance and the investigations,” he said, Reuters reported. “You should ask him.”
Prystaiko’s comments came a day after William Taylor, the acting ambassador to Ukraine, testified in the first televised hearing of the impeachment inquiry.
In a disclosure that drew the most attention, Taylor pointed to Trump’s keen interest in getting the eastern European ally to investigate Biden and reiterated his understanding that $391 million in U.S. security aid was withheld from Kiev unless it cooperated.
“I have never seen a direct relationship between investigations and security assistance,” Prystaiko said. “Yes, the investigations were mentioned, you know, in the conversation of the presidents. But there was no clear connection between these events.”
But the facts do not really matter to House Speaker and California Rep. Nancy Pelosi nor her henchman, California Rep. Adam Schiff.
The facts never mattered because they have wanted to impeach President Donald Trump from the day he won the 2016 presidential election.
This entire impeachment façade is predicated on jealousy and a temper tantrum called, The Resistance, that has lasted for two years.
President Donald Trump addressed the phony impeachment on Twitter on Monday.
“Our Crazy, Do Nothing (where’s USMCA, infrastructure, lower drug pricing & much more?) Speaker of the House, Nervous Nancy Pelosi, who is petrified by her Radical Left knowing she will soon be gone (they & Fake News Media are her BOSS), suggested on Sunday’s DEFACE THE NATION….,” he said.
“….that I testify about the phony Impeachment Witch Hunt. She also said I could do it in writing. Even though I did nothing wrong, and don’t like giving credibility to this No Due Process Hoax, I like the idea & will, in order to get Congress focused again, strongly consider it!” he said in a tweet.
The president was responding to a challenge from Pelosi to testify in his own impeachment.
“The president could come right before the committee and talk, speak all the truth that he wants if he wants. He has every opportunity to present his case,” she said last week.
She said that Congress members who are weighing impeachment would “look forward” to any information provided by President Trump “that is exculpatory, that means ex, taking away, culpable, blame.”
The translation on that is that president trump is being held to the standard of being guilty until proven innocent.
New York Sen. Charles Schumer also made the same suggestion, likely because they want to hit the president with gotcha questions that could catch him in a perjury trap.
“If Donald Trump doesn’t agree with what he’s hearing, doesn’t like what he’s hearing, he shouldn’t tweet,” he said. “He should come to the committee and testify under oath. And he should allow all those around him to come to the committee and testify under oath.”
It is likely that the president’s attorneys, including former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani, would advise him of the Democrat scheme.
Nice try Nancy.
