Adam Schiff, who resembles that creepy neighbor who has long, awkward stares when he comes to talk to you, got his way on impeachment.
Drunk on his dubious power and inflated by fawning media breathlessly reporting any narrative that fits their hatred of Trump, Schiff moved forward on impeachment for a yet-to-be-identified crime. Dems are unable to separate facts from hate; they proceed with impeachment at their own peril.
The optics are bad at Nadler's Judiciary Committee hearings, about as bad as holding Jeffrey Epstein's birthday party at Chuck E. Cheese.
With the Obama-era Deep State attempts to dislodge a duly elected president, the "Russia Hoax," impeachment, the orchestrated hit-job on Justice Brett Kavanaugh, and the contempt of the political class for a sitting president doing the will of the people, Trump will be the only incumbent who can run as an "outsider" in 2020.
You do not have to like Trump to recognize that what he is doing to upend the bureaucratic bullying of a government that has grown too big, intrusive, petty and expensive for most Americans is good.
Yet sneaky little Adam Schiff got his way. He said he had indisputable evidence that Trump was a Russian spy and that he has turned the corner on "quid-pro-quo" charges — but then a focus group told him to call it "bribery." Then he "turned the corner" on that. Now, absent any "bribe," he says he has turned the corner on their new phrase, "abuse of power." When you turn corners four times, you are back where you started; you cannot beat Trump at the polls, so you must use the overreaching power of an obtuse government apparatus that you control to get rid of him.
Using opinion and policy differences masquerading as facts, the Dems show us with this political farce why they should not be in charge of the entire government. Democrat Counsel Daniel Goldman, who testified when the weasel Rep. Schiff would not, refused to say who ordered AT&T to release phone records of one of the best (and almost only) investigative journalists, John Solomon, plus the president's personal attorney and Rep. Devin Nunes. Subpoenaing NSA-type phone records for a political smear campaign should scare both Democrats and the media.
Heck, a 12-minute call on ATT in and of itself is remarkable because it did not get dropped — a record for ATT.
Commentary presented as news reporting by the mainstream media cherry picks the sound bites in this Kabuki Theater to fit their agenda. These "resistance dissidents" on the left merge their news into commentary, forming what can only be called "dysentery."
This whole impeachment charade is being rushed by Democrats to hurt Trump before the 2020 election. Jeffrey Epstein spent more time searching for the right sheet to use than Dems in Nadler's Judiciary Committee have given this.
The president of Ukraine, Volodymyr Zelenskyy, the man supposedly being "bribed," said repeatedly he felt absolutely no pressure from Trump. He got missiles Obama wouldn't give him and did nothing for Trump. That is really all you need to know.
The whole exercise underscores why Trump was elected. Folks are tired of all these layers of unaccountable bureaucrats, committees, sub-committees, lawyers, ambiguous laws layered upon laws and knuckleheads wasting our money on their self-important nothingness. We know that if this can happen to Trump, it can happen to us.
After Schiff's bull-Schiff added to the FBI falsifying records to get FISA warrants on the Trump campaign and New York's government falsifying Epstein's jail records, there should be no trust in government officials. They are so good at falsifying records, I bet all their kids got into USC.
