Wednesday marked the first day of Democrats’ impeachment hearings against President Donald Trump. The hearings are centered around Trump’s July 25 phone call with Ukraine President Volodymyr Zelensky regarding an alleged quid pro quo.

Trump is accused of withholding military aid from Ukraine in order to force the nation to investigate former Vice President Joe Biden’s son, Hunter. The elder Biden is the current Democratic frontrunner in the 2020 primary.

Neither of the first two witnesses called were on the July 25 phone call. Ambassador William Taylor has not even spoken to Trump, and admitted in previous closed-door testimony that his only knowledge of the situation comes from New York Times reporting.

Rep. Devin Nunes (R-CA) used his opening statement as the ranking member of the House Intelligence Committee to point out the Democrats — specifically, Chairman Adam Schiff’s — past attacks on Trump that turned out to be overblown.

“In a July open hearing of this committee following publication of the Mueller report, the Democrats engaged in a last-ditch effort to convince the American people that President Trump is a Russian agent. That hearing was the pitiful finale of a three-year-long operation by the Democrats, the corrupt media, and partisan bureaucrats to overturn the results of the 2016 presidential election,” Nunes said.

“After the spectacular implosion of their Russia hoax on July 24, in which they spent years denouncing any Republican who ever shook hands with a Russian, on July 25 they turned on a dime and now claim the real malfeasance is Republicans’ dealings with Ukraine.”

Nunes then reminded viewers that Schiff (who he does not specifically name) previously claimed he had “more than circumstantial evidence” of Trump colluding with Russia during the 2016 election and had tried to obtain nude photos of Trump from two radio pranksters.

Nunes then said Democrats on the Intelligence Committee now expect people to take their new claims on Ukraine misconduct “at face value.”

“But anyone familiar with the Democrats’ scorched-earth war against President Trump would not be surprised to see all the typical signs that this is just a carefully orchestrated media smear campaign,” Nunes said.

Among the examples Nunes cites are that “The witnesses deemed suitable for television by the Democrats were put through a closed-door audition process in a cult-like atmosphere in the basement of the Capitol, where the Democrats conducted secret depositions, released a flood of misleading and one-sided leaks, and later selectively released transcripts in a highly staged manner.”

“At a prior hearing, Democrats on this committee read out a purely fictitious rendition of the President’s phone call with President Zelensky,” Nunes said in another example. “They clearly found the real conversation to be insufficient for their impeachment narrative, so they just made up a new one.”

Nunes also recalled Schiff’s office having prior communications with the whistleblower. Schiff now claims he does not know the identity of the whistleblower while simultaneously saying that if Republicans reveal his identity during the hearings they will face an ethics complaint.

    Excellent speech. He nailed Schiff sitting right next to him. Loved that. This lynching will fail just as the Russian Delusion and the Kavanaugh lynching did. Then what are the Dems gonna do? The whole country is sick and tired of them doing nothing but salivating over their next Trump smear campaign. What a total waste of taxpayer money they all are! With every one, they are putting another nail in their party’s coffin. I hope the Dem party dies forever. And this being said from a former die-hard Democrat.

      I wish Nunes had named Schiff though as that would have stretched his pencil neck even farther. Talk about a pound of butter on a hot plate. Also after Schiff’s disgusting “so called parody” why was he not walked out the door for lying in a very serious meeting? Schiff should be kicked off that committee and all other committees. He is pure evil. He wouldn’t last five minutes in the corporate world. Nothing he says will ever have any value from hereon out.

      Nunes would do anything for Trump. Nunes lies, and cheats for Trump. Nunes would have the whistleblower killed for Trump. Nunes bends over for Trump. Nunes is a worthless, pathetic sycophant, not a man.

    It is past time to stop giving any kind of credence to the POS schiff-sh** or this 3-ring circus they are trying to call an impeachment inquiry. It is time to shut these whiny crying childish acting sh**birds down completely. For over 3 f****** years they have wasted millions on top of millions of taxpayer dollars for their phony bullsh** and unless this is a total conspiracy by ALL of our congress — it is time to put a stop to their little game. Lindsay Graham is right — by attending or watching this bullsh** hoax is giving legitimacy to it which no one should be doing. Time to take the bull by the horns and castrate the demoSCUM dirtbags.

  • The Democrats are doing nothing less than trying to destroy our democracy. It is not the people’s choice that matters. I have witnessed something like this in business. A person was promoted much to the dismay of others. One person said I’ll fix this and set up a plan. She went HR with a story of harassment. She advised others what to say when the investigation began. The new manager was placed on probation while this scam was being run.
    Fortunately, honest people stood up and stated the truth. The manager was saved and the accusers were fired. If only we could fire these lying individuals at the end of these charades. If only those with integrity would stand up and be truthful.

      We are a Republic, not a Democracy. If we were a Democracy, the majority would rule, and the US doesn’t work like that. I totally agree with the rest of what you said.

  • Michael Groves says:

    One thing you must understand in The United States of Communist America. Democrats are above the law. Look at how they are running th e impeachment. They set the rules, and when they don’t like the out come. They change them again. That easy. It doesn’t matter how much the cowardly, gutless Republicans object. The Democrats are in control.
