The Democrats’ kangaroo court has one major problem that could bring them all crashing down.
There is one vital piece of information that they are scrambling to uncover.
Adam Schiff blew his top when a key witness let the cat out of the bag.
The Democrats have to prove beyond a reasonable doubt that Trump committed a high crime.
While a high crime isn’t specific, impeachment is not supposed to apply to everything. If Trump jaywalked on the street, yes that might be illegal, but still Trump shouldn’t be impeached for it.
But Adam Schiff is so filled with hatred that he might try to impeach Trump for jaywalking if he caught Trump crossing the road at the wrong time.
Democrats have to prove that Trump engaged in a quid pro quo with the Ukrainian President just for his own personal political advantage.
As the details of the matter have come forward, it seems like Trump was far more concerned with Ukrainian meddling in the 2016 election than he was in investigating Joe Biden. In fact it was the Ukrainian President who brought up Burisma in the phone call, not Trump.
And it is perfectly legitimate to hold up aid to countries when they meddle in American elections.
The Democrats were hoping to win big with Ambassador Sondland when Sondland changed his story to say that he felt like there had been a quid pro quo.
But when Sondland related the actual facts of the matter, a different story appeared.
So far from urging a quid pro quo, Trump stated clearly that he wanted no quid pro quo.
According to the Washington Examiner:
U.S. Ambassador to the European Union Gordon Sondland told the House Intelligence Committee on Wednesday that President Donald Trump told him that he wanted “nothing” from Ukraine and explicitly stated that Trump wanted “no quid pro quo.”
“I finally called the president, I believe it was on the 9th of September, I can’t find the records and [the State Department] won’t provide them to me, but I believe I just asked him an open-ended question, Mr. Chairman,” Sondland told House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff.
Sondland told Schiff that he asked Trump: “What do you want from Ukraine? I keep hearing all these different ideas and theories and this and that. What do you want?”
“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. Tell Zelensky to do the right thing,’ something to that effect,” Sondland continued. “So I typed out a text to ambassador Taylor and my reason for telling him this was not to defend what the president was saying, not to opine on whether the president was being truthful or untruthful, but simply to relay I’ve gone as far as I can go. This is the final word that I heard from the president the United States.”
Sondland undermined the whole Democratic case because unless they can prove that Trump stopped Ukrainian aid because he wanted them to dig up dirt on Joe Biden, then they have no case and they are wasting everyone’s time.
And Sondland, just like all the other witnesses that the Democrats have brought forward, only has opinions that Trump did something wrong.
And presidents shouldn’t be impeached because of opinions. There need to be facts.
And the fact of the matter is that Trump said that he didn’t want a quid pro quo.
Do you think that the facts Sondland presented have cleared Trump once and for all?
