It seems that every day, new evidence is brought forward in the push for President Donald Trump’s impeachment inquiry. However, it all seems to point out precisely the opposite of what the Democrats led by House Intelligence Committee Chairman Representative Adam Schiff and House Speaker Nancy Pelosi are claiming.
And their fellow congress members are getting sick of it, saying that it is causing the nation to lose trust in the government and lose faith in our country as a whole. They couldn’t be more correct.
Republican Representative Adam Kinzinger told “America’s Newsroom” on Tuesday that “Everything is a clown show. Everybody in the process is losing credibility, and frankly, the American people have lost and are losing faith in the institutions of government.”
And the Illinois lawmaker continued, saying, “They’re concerned about the treatment of the ambassador, and I have some sympathy for that viewpoint because I think Adam Schiff does a lot of selective leaking.”
This was said in reference to the State Department’s decision to not allow US Ambassador to the European Union Gordon Sondland from appearing before Congress in a closed-door session on Capitol Hill.
Sondland, who had been an ambassador for Ukraine and had been in recent contact with Ukrainian officials related to the July 25 phone call in question, had been asked to testify to before and deposition on Tuesday designed to delve further into the Ukraine controversy. However, the Trump administration blocked Sondland from appearing.
As President Trump tweeted later that day in explanation, “I would love to send Ambassador Sondland, a really good man and great American, to testify, but unfortunately he would be testifying before a totally compromised kangaroo court, where Republican’s rights have been taken away, and true facts are not allowed out for the public to see.”
And we can’t blame the president for his decision. Just last week, the same committee held a similar closed-door deposition in which they questioned former US ambassador to Ukraine Kurt Volker for over nine hours. And just like Sondland’s testimony is proposed to be, Volker’s account of what actually happened, including proof via text messages, didn’t match up with what the Democrats running this sideshow said.
However, rather than releasing the whole text of the day’s inquiry, Schiff and his cohorts only leaked a few of the text messages to the public and out of context at that.
Naturally, they want to take this push for impeachment all the way, and thus are willing to do a bit lying and hiding of the truth to get it there. So that is precisely what they did.
Volker gave up his entire day, devoting it to the committee in an effort to solve this issue and get to the truth. But after it was made clear that the truth wasn’t what the committee was looking for, they had to redact and hide most of the information given, claiming a false and opposite narrative.
Just like Schiff did when the transcript for the call was released.
Instead of reading the transcript verbatim in his opening statements to Congress, he read a “parody” or his own version of it. And he was called out on it. If you look at the actual transcript, which is now public knowledge, you will see that Schiff’s words stand in stark contrast.
The same can be said for the information given by Ambassador Volker. Thus, it only stands to reason that Schiff and his “clown show” would act similarly when presented with Sondland’s testimony.
Republicans are calling for the full release of the Volker’s testimony. They want to see America’s faith in our government restored. And if it comes at the cost of lying Adam Schiff’s career, then so be it. The House Intelligence Committee has said from the get-go that the whole point of this inquiry is to get to the bottom of the Ukraine phone call and find out if the president acted wrongly.
However, they have been met with the same answer several times now and from different people. Evidence has been given and proved correct. And yet, they refuse to believe it. Instead, they have concocted a story to rid America of Trump and are determined to make every account match their narrative, even if they have to make up the material or omit factual evidence in the process.
This isn’t justice; it’s collusion and treason.
