On Wednesday, the House’s impeachment show trial featured State Department career diplomats, Ambassador to Ukraine William Taylor Jr. and George Kent, ostensibly presenting “damning evidence” that President Trump held back important military aid to the Ukraine in a quid pro quo to pressure the Ukrainian president to investigate Joe and Hunter Biden.
“Yesterday was a total dud,” Eric Trump of Victory Trump said Thursday. “Their witnesses were horrible.”
California Globe watched the hearing. Ambassador Taylor and Kent had no first hand evidence against the President and admitted this. What they did have was the lyrics to REO Speedwagon’s song “Take it on the Run” from 1980:
Heard it from a friend who
Heard it from a friend who
Heard it from another you been messin’ around
Trump Victory hosted a press call Thursday morning on Democrats’ “Impeachment Witch Hunt” with Eric Trump and Rick Gorka. Eric Trump called Wednesday’s sham hearing yet another “Hail Mary” by the Democrats. The first Hail Mary was the Russia hoax, then the Kavanaugh hearings, and now Ukraine, said Trump.
“Their Party stands for very little,” he added.
Instead of doing the people’s business, the House has named 30 Post Offices while running these hoaxes, Trump said. Meanwhile, under President Trump, “the stock market is up – the Dow is up another 100 points today,” Trump said. “Unemployment is at its lowest in history – African American unemployment, Hispanic and women unemployment is lowest in history. Six million are off food stamps, and six million more are employed than during Obama’s administration.”
He added, “3.4 percent unemployment is incredible! Our economy is firing on all cylinders.”
Yet House Intelligence chairman Rep. Adam Schiff (D-CA) continues to claim that President Donald Trump committed “bribery.”
They ask, “How can we continue to attack Trump everyday?” Eric Trump said. “The Dems never want to play the long game. Yesterday was a total dud.”
Lacking any mention at Wednesday’s hearing was former Vice President Joe Biden’s son, Hunter Biden, who was paid $50,000 a month by a Ukrainian oil company while his father represented the Obama Administration to Ukraine, now under investigation for corruption. “He [Hunter Biden] flew on Air Force 2 to China, and took $5 billion back to the U.S.,” Eric Trump said.
House Speaker Nancy Pelosi Living in Alternate Universe
House Speaker Nancy Pelosi still claims President Trump is guilty of trying to bribe Ukrainian officials into investigating Joe Biden and his son. “The bribe is to grant or withhold military assistance in return for a public statement of a fake investigation into the election,” Pelosi said after Wednesday’s hearing. “That’s bribery.”
Was Nancy watching the same hearing Wednesday that most of America watched? Or was her answer wishful thinking?
In a press conference following the hearing, Pelosi said Democrats haven’t decided whether to impeach President Trump, but she said the hearing Wednesday showed “a narrative about the president threatening to grant or withhold military assistance to Ukraine, which is in our national interest to do so because they were fighting Russians.”
“People are sick of these games,” Eric Trump said. “They want jobs, and a secure border, and more wage growth – wages have been exploding – and strong manufacturing. 401k’s are up 40 percent, and small business taxes are down 20 percent.”
Witch Hunt Good for Trump Fundraising Despite Media Reports
Eric Trump said the impeachment witch hunt is good for Trump Victory fundraising. They raised $15 million in 24 hours. “Biden raised $15 million in all of one quarter,” Trump said. “The money is coming in from people who have never donated before. People in the country are really pissed off with what is going on.”
Eric Trump said every time Democrats pull one of these stunts, just as with yesterday, it backfires, and the Trump team raises record amounts of money.
He noted that Elizabeth Warren is “incredibly radical,” Bernie is “looking crazy,” Bloomberg “has flipped so many times” no one knows where he stands,” and the “Bad Mayor has real problems in his city.”
“They just don’t have the person – no star power.”
You Can’t Make This Stuff Up – or You Can, if You are The Media
Mediate reported: “In riveting testimony, top U.S. diplomat to Ukraine William Taylor laid out stunning and devastating details of President Donald Trump’s attempts to coerce Ukraine into investigating Joe Biden and his son Hunter Biden, as well as a conspiracy theory about Ukrainian interference in the 2016 election.”
CBS reported: “Career diplomat William Taylor, the top U.S. diplomat in Ukraine, testified on Wednesday alongside George Kent, the deputy assistant secretary of state for European and Eurasian affairs. The historic hearing was carried live across the major broadcast and cable news networks and gave the American public its first look at impeachment proceedings that have taken place behind closed doors for close to two months.”
The Associated Press claimed “New evidence emerges at Impeachment hearing.”
Reuters reported: “The top U.S. diplomat in Ukraine, testifying in the first televised hearing of the impeachment inquiry against President Donald Trump, linked the president on Wednesday more directly to a pressure campaign on Ukraine for investigations of Democratic presidential contender Joe Biden and his son that would benefit him politically.”
The only people taking it on the run appear to be the Democrats’ claiming that their third-and fourth-hand witness covered are protected under Whistleblower protections.
Well I know that neighbourhood
The talk is cheap but when the story is good
And the tales grow taller on down the line
