    President Donald Trump did not exert pressure or offer any repayment when he asked Ukrainian leader Volodymyr Zelensky to probe the dealings of former vice president Joe Biden and his son, Hunter Biden, according to a transcript (pdf) of a call between the two leaders released by the White House on Sept. 25. During the call, Zelensky was the first to bring up Rudy Giuliani, the Trump attorney who had looked into the Ukrainian business dealings of Hunter Biden. In response, Trump noted that Giuliani is a “respected man” and told Zelensky that he would like to have Giuliani call...

    In the last few days, media talking heads have been saying the word "CrowdStrike" a lot, defining it as a wild conspiracy theory originating in Moscow. They were joined by Chris Wallace at Fox News, who informed us that president Trump and his ill-informed fans believe in a crazy idea that the DNC wasn't hacked by the Russians but by some Ukrainian group named CrowdStrike that stole the DNC server and brought it to Ukraine , and that it was Ukraine that meddled in our 2016 election and not Russia. A crazy idea indeed. Except that neither Trump nor his...
  • Alexander Vindman condemned himself in his impeachment testimony

    The commander in chief ought to fire Lt. Col. Alexander Vindman, who serves on the National Security Council, for rank insubordination. That is the key take­away from Tuesday’s hearings in the Democratic impeachment push. Vindman, unlike other Democratic “star witnesses,” was at least on the July 25 phone call between President Trump and his Ukrainian counterpart, Volodymyr Zelensky, that set off the inquiry. But Vindman was unreliable and had questionable judgment, according to his own outgoing superior, Tim Morrison, the National Security Council’s senior director for European affairs.
  • Vindman Broke Chain of Command to Get Word Out of Trump-Zelensky Call

    Western Journal ^ | 11/19/19 | Randy DeSoto
    Army Lt. Col. Alexander Vindman testified on Tuesday that he bypassed his chain of command and went directly to the National Security Council’s legal counsel to raise his concerns about President Donald Trump’s July phone call with Ukrainian president Volodymyr Zelensky. The implication appears to be that Vindman had an agenda, which was only strengthened by his claim in his opening statement that Trump demanded Zelensky open an investigation into former Vice President Joe Biden and his son Hunter Biden, though according to the White House’s partial transcript, the commander in chief did no such thing. Republican Rep. Brad Wenstrup...

    Lt. Col. Alexander Vindman admitted he made up elements of President Donald Trump’s call with Ukranian President Volodymyr Zelensky in an official summary. Prior to the call, Vindman included a discussion about corruption in the talking points provided to the president but Trump did not use them in the call. The summary Vindman wrote after the call read: President Trump underscored the unwavering support of the United States for Ukraine’s sovereignty and territorial integrity – within its internationally recognized borders – and expressed his commitment to work together with President-elect Zelenskyy and the Ukrainian people to implement reforms that strengthen...

    White House releases transcript of Trump’s first call with Ukraine’s Volodymyr Zelensk The White House on Friday released the transcript of President Trump’s first call with Ukrainian leader Volodymyr Zelensky – in which he congratulated him “on a fantastic election.” The president had promised several times to release the transcript of the April 12 call, which he described as more important that the one about two weeks later in which Trump asked Zelensky to investigate former Vice President Joe Biden and his son Hunter. That call prompted a whistleblower complaint that led Democrats to launch an impeachment inquiry. The probe...

    (CNN)To President Donald Trump, the whole flap with Ukraine is over a "perfect" phone call. "It's based on a single phone call of congratulations to the President of Ukraine, which they fraudulently mischaracterized to sound absolutely horrible," Trump said a few weeks ago of his July 25 call with the Ukrainian President cited by a whistleblower complaint. But a review of more than 2,600 pages of transcripts released this week from eight witnesses who have testified in the House impeachment inquiry over the past six weeks shows how controversy over Trump's Ukraine policy had been brewing inside the US government...
  • Schiff Made To Watch Total Disaster As His Key Witnesses Fall Apart On Stand

    Inside Adam Schiff’s star chamber located on Capitol Hill where he has been conducting the bogus impeachment inquiry, things turned into a total disaster for the House Intel Chairman. According to new reports, Schiff was utterly humiliated when he was made to watch as his two key witnesses totally fall apart while on the stand. You don’t want to miss what the mainstream media is refusing to report. Reports from insiders who are privy to Schiff’s impeachment hearings are telling quite a different tale than the cherry-picked mainstream news reports. In fact, it’s turned into a total disaster for the...

    Rep. Mark Meadows (R-NC) tweeted on Tuesday that despite what many media headlines are reporting with regards to Ambassador Gordon Sondland's testimony, he did not confirm there was a case of quid pro quo between President Trump and Ukraine. "Seeing many overblown (and outright false) reports about Ambassador Sondland's testimony. Here's what he actually said. 1. I did not (and still don't) know why aid was held up 2. I 'PRESUMED' it was because of corruption 3. I told Yermak my assumption," said Meadows, who sits on the House Oversight and Reform Committee. Seeing many overblown (and outright false) reports...

    House Republicans plan to call Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff as one of their first witnesses in the impeachment inquiry against President Trump following the adoption of formal rules for the investigation, claiming he is a “fact witness” due to his office's early involvement with the whistleblower whose complaint sparked the proceedings. A source familiar with Republicans’ strategy moving forward in the impeachment inquiry confirmed to Fox News on Monday that GOP members plan to call Schiff, D-Calif., for questioning -- even if they are unlikely to succeed. The source told Fox News that Republicans want answers to questions like:...

    On Thursday Tim Morrison, the National Security Council’s Senior Director for European Affairs appeared on Capitol Hill Thursday to testify before Adam Schiff’s sham secret chamber impeachment During the hearing Morrison told the committee he was not concerned about anything illegal that was discussed during the Trump-Zelensky phone call. But that he did have concerns about his subordinate LTC Alex Vindman who he had issues with in the past. Jim Morrison is not the only one who had issues with Adam Schiff’s controversial start witness in the impeachment scam. Retired Lieutenant Colonel (LTTC) Jim Hickman worked with then Major Vindman...

    The media wall of conspiratorial silence has been breached. – The identity of the fake “whistleblower” who conspired with Adam Schiff and his staff to serve as the kicking-off point for the Democrat/media-driven impeachment scam has been widely known for weeks now. It has been so widely known, in fact, that Paul Sperry, in his revelatory report on RealClearInvestigations, said this: “… a handful of former colleagues have compiled a roughly 40-page research dossier on him. A classified version of the document is circulating on Capitol Hill, and briefings have been conducted based on it. One briefed Republican has been...

    Here are some things to understand about Alexander Vindman, the mid-level NSC flunky who the Democrats and their media toadies are trying to portray as the second coming of Audie Murphy in the wake of yesterday’s testimony before Adam Schiff’s Soviet-style inquisition: – Mr. Vindman served his country admirably, rising to the rank of Lt. Colonel and earning a Purple Heart while serving in the Iraq War. – He was born in Ukraine and speaks the language fluently. He and his twin brother emigrated to the United States in 1979, when they were 3 years old. – He is most...

    House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff, D-Calif., who is overseeing the ongoing illegitimate impeachment inquiry set in motion by Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., is reportedly telling witnesses testifying not to answer questions asked by Republican lawmakers. Speaking to reporters on Capitol Hill, House Minority Whip Steve Scalise, R-La., slammed the hidden process claiming Schiff was instructing witnesses testifying behind the closed doors of the SCIF not to answer questions asked by Republican members. “He’s directing witnesses not to answer questions that he doesn’t want the witness to answer if they’re asked by Republicans,” Scalise charged. “He’s not cut off one...

    Is that really all there is? – Some low-level flunky in the U.S. diplomatic corps claims to have been “concerned” about the July 25 call between U.S. President Donald Trump and Ukraine President Volodymyr Zelensky, and therefore we are supposed to support the Democrats’ ongoing impeachment circus? Yeaaaahhhhhh….no. Not buying any of it. Sorry. God bless Mr. Vindman for his military service, but can we please get him out of our diplomatic service? Because, obviously his feelings are far too fragile to be a part of that difficult line of work. Literally, the only thing Vindman said in his opening...

    A high-ranking Army officer and top White House Ukraine expert is expected to tell House investigators Tuesday that he twice raised objections to his superiors about how President Trump and his administration were interacting with Ukraine out of a “sense of duty." A draft of Lt. Col. Alexander Vindman's opening statement says he became worried when “outside influencers” were spreading a “false narrative” about Ukraine. Vindman will testify behind closed doors Tuesday to the House Intelligence, Foreign Affairs, and Oversight and Reform committees. He will be the first official to testify who directly witnessed the July 25 phone call between...

    Trump said "this crooked" Schiff "fraudulently mischaracterized" his July 25 Ukraine phone call to congratulate the new president "to make it sound absolutely horrible." "I'm going to go after him," Trump said. "They say, 'sir, he has immunity, because he said it in Congress he has immunity.' I don't care about immunity. He can't have immunity. He made up a phone call." Trump added his "totally congenial" phone call was twisted by a "totally terrible fraudulent thing" as Schiff was "talking to the American public, lying and cheating" and now "he has to pay a big price." Trump: Even if...
