Game Over Parts 4&5: President Trump Wanted NO Quid Pro Quo
Courtesy of Def-Con News 11/24/19
The Democrats’ sham impeachment inquiry continued Wednesday with yet another witness testifying that President Trump did not tie military aid to Ukraine in exchange for investigations into the rotten Bidens and the worse Democrats. This came after testimony in which witnesses said President Trump had committed no crimes and last week’s testimony saying the same thing. The public hearings have now provided at least 5 “game over” moments and yet Adam Schiff and the Democrats continue to push this sorry coup attempt.
The Democrats have alleged that Trump has committed an impeachable offense, but they can’t quite settle on what that is. At various times they have accused him of quid pro quo, extortion and bribery. The witnesses they have rolled out to prove this, however, have denied the President did any of this, making the public hearings the worst movie franchise in history.
Game Over Part 1: Ukraine In The Membrane – Last Wednesday, diplomats George Kent and Bill Taylor testified about their feelings but when asked if President Trump had committed an impeachable offense, neither man could say he had. Game over!
Game Over Part 2: Pathetic Boogaloo – Also last Wednesday former U.S. Ambassador to Ukraine Marie Yovanovitch testified that Trump made her sad, but had no knowledge of any wrongdoing on the President’s part.
“Do you have any information regarding the President of the United States accepting any bribes?” Republican Rep. Chris Stewart asked.
“No,” replied Yovanovitch.
“Do you have any information regarding any criminal activity that the President of the United States has been involved with at all?” Stewart asked.
“No,” replied Yovanovitch.
Game over, man. Again.
Game Over Part 3: National Lampoon’s European Vindication – On Tuesday, Lt. Col. Alexander Vindman and VP Mike Pence aide Jennifer Williams testified that there was no bribery.
“Ms. Williams, you’ve never used the word ‘bribery’ or ‘bribe’ to explain President Trump’s conduct, correct?” Republican Rep. John Ratcliffe asked.
“No, sir,” replied Williams.
‘Col. Vindman, you haven’t either,” asked Ratcliffe.
“That is correct,” affirmed Vindman.
This game is still over!
Game Over Part 4: Revenge of the Stiffs – Also on Tuesday, former envoy to Ukraine Kurt Volker and National Security Council aide Tim Morrison testified that there was no quid pro quo/bribery and that aid to the Ukraine was not tied to any investigations.
The game is way over!
Game Over Part 5: The Nutty Confessor – On Wednesday, European Union ambassador Gordon Sondland testified that he personally felt aid to Ukraine was tied to the investigations, though he wasn’t clear why he thought that. He certainly wasn’t told by the President because this was the important part of his testimony:
“I never heard from President Trump that aid was conditioned on an announcement [of investigations],” said Sondland.
Sondland testified that he asked President Trump directly, “what do you want” from Ukraine?
“It was a very short, abrupt conversation. He was not in a good mood and he just said, ‘I want nothing. I want nothing. I want no quid pro quo,’” said Sondland.
Game over, finished, kaput, finite!
In sports, they have a “mercy rule” where they call the game when one side is winning by too much. Trump and the Republicans have all the points with the Democrats remaining scoreless.
To avoid further embarrassment Adam Schiff should end this exercise and go back to the drawing board to cook up some other scheme to overthrow the duly-elected President of the United States.
