Donald J. Trump is president of the United States of America. That’s it; the whole storyline behind arguably the most contentious circus surrounding a presidential election that most of us can remember. Before this president was elected, the opposition was in high gear to ruin him. Their travails of unsavory deeds meant to result in ruination of one man, irrespective of the opposition’s crowing that Hillary Clinton had the election in the bag.
Trump prevailing was a monumental smack-down to their sleaziness of hiring and funding a former British spy to work with Russians to manufacture a fake dossier. It was used to lie to a (secret) FISA court to garner authority to spy on their opposition’s campaign, irrespective of the spy telling them the “information” was unverified. Ignoring all of the fabrications, the “investigation” was focused on Trump! Disregarding the obvious, a team of pro-Hillary, anti-Trump lawyers, headed by one of the same (Robert Mueller), spent $42 million of taxpayers’ money to torridly dig, only to culminate with “no collusion” and no proof of obstruction.
The conclusions did not embarrass or impede the fretful probers.
Years of unlimited, laborious and expensive efforts by enemies, not including the undisclosed money spent to hire the characters to construct the dossier, resulting in bareness, should be the end. Wrong. President Trump and anyone associated with him, especially his family, must be eradicated.
The execrators moved from Ruin to Russia to Racism to Recession and now it’s Resign/Impeachment. Townhall reported on Oct. 2 that the impeachment process “has been in the works since 2016.”
Now there is a “whistleblower” complaint against Trump based on hearsay.
The allegation claims that during Trump’s phone call with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky, Trump wanted the Ukraine to investigate the Bidens and their business connections with Burisma Holdings, Ukraine’s largest private natural gas producer.
Aside from Zelensky affirming he did not feel pressured to act nor was there any quid pro quo, the allegation may collapse soon.
The National Anti-Corruption Bureau of Ukraine (NABU) began investigating Burisma owner’s (Mykola Zlochevsky) “activity” from 2010 to 2012. There are strong “hints” that Hunter Biden was hired for the Joe Biden connection and the hope of stopping the prosecutor. Hunter and his firm reaped millions of dollars for zero experience in the field. Joe denied knowing anything about the dealings, until a photograph divulged a golfing outing with the Bidens and a Burisma executive.
Investigative journalist John Solomon just released information from a found document revealing the U.S. government knew of NABU’s investigation in February 2019, long before Trump’s phone call.
Former Vice President Joe Biden bragged, on video-audio tape in January 2018, nearly two years ago, at a Conference on Foreign Relations, telling Ukraine’s then-President Petro Poroshenko he’d withhold a billion dollars from them if they did not fire a prosecutor investigating the (specious) business dealings of his son Hunter.
“I said, ‘I’m telling you, you’re not getting the billion dollars.’ I said, ‘You’re not getting the billion. I’m going to be leaving here in,’ I think it was about six hours. I looked at them and said: ‘I’m leaving in six hours. If the prosecutor is not fired, you’re not getting the money.’ Well, son of a bitch. (Laughter.) He got fired. And they put in place someone who was solid at the time.”
Repeat performance: the anti-Trumpers are not investigating the Bidens; they are investigating Trump over total hearsay allegations of John Doe whistleblower.
On Sept. 17, Adam Schiff, House Intelligence Committee chair, denied contact with the whistleblower. “We have not spoken directly with the whistleblower. We would like to. But, I’m sure the whistleblower has concerns that he has not been advised by as the law requires by the inspector general or the director of national intelligence (DNI) just as to how he is to communicate with Congress.”
“We” did meet with the non-whistleblower and “we” directed his subsequent actions. The professionally worded complaint indicates it’s attorney-authored; perhaps by Schiff himself. Schiff has known about this guy since August.
It’s Christine Blasey Ford and Dianne Feinstein all over again.
This is his third known bold-faced lie.
One was his repeated declarations he had proof of Trump’s collusion with Russia. Second was soberly reciting a manufactured, false statement of Trump’s words with Zelensky. When exposed, he called it “parody.”
Because this hearsay charade was falling apart, another whistleblower suddenly came forth, claiming to have firsthand knowledge. Schiff’s committee questioned the two complainants behind closed doors. No. 2 imparted nothing new. What exists must be quite tepid; otherwise Schiff would be in front of the cameras spilling all of the damning accusations.
Whistleblower No. 2 has a close professional relationship with one of the Democrat presidential candidates. Both John Does are represented by the same attorney, Mark Zaid, who has hinted at a third whistleblower.
These scenarios echo the shamed Michael Avenatti, the once-adored lawyer with a growing list of anti-Trump clients and who Democrats cannot get far enough from now.
They’ll just keep on coming until Adam Schiff and Nancy Pelosi think they have some glue. Stay tuned.
