Adam Schiff built momentum behind the impeachment witch hunt through a carefully-crafted process.
Schiff held testimony behind closed doors, spoon-fed friendly fake news reporters, and cherry picked tidbits to make it seem like the case against Donald Trump was overwhelming.
But then he ended up with egg on his face after this leak backfired in one major way.
Schiff’s latest impeachment move involved releasing transcripts of his closed-door depositions.
European Union Ambassador Gordon Sondland caused a stir when he revised his testimony ahead of its public release to include the fact that it was his guess that the Trump administration withheld military aid to Ukraine until that country investigated Joe and Hunter Biden.
The Fake News Media could barely contain their glee.
But Republican Senators waived off Sondland’s testimony as a giant nothing burger.
“Neither the president of Ukraine or the president of the United States says there’s a quid pro quo or that there was pressure applied. Does everybody else’s opinion matter if the supposed victim wasn’t victimized?” Sen. Kevin Cramer (R-N.D.) said. “Zelensky doesn’t feel like he was pressured. I don’t know who the rest of the world is to feel victimized on his behalf.”
Sen. Mike Braun (R-Ind.) sought to cast doubt on practically the entire set of witnesses deposed by House Democrats behind closed doors when compared to the weight of Trump’s call with Zelensky.
“There’s been several folks that have testified that they think that it was not only inappropriate but that there was a quid pro quo,” Braun said. “And I’m going to base it upon, not someone’s opinion, but what I actually see. So far that is the transcript for me
. . .
What difference does it make? This is all out in the public, with the [summary] the president put out two or three months ago. It doesn’t make any difference what anybody else said,” Sen. Chuck Grassley (R-Iowa) said.
The dominant story the Fake News Media is trying to manufacture is that Senate Republicans are turning on Donald Trump.
So-called “journalists” hoped the Sondland testimony would be a tipping point.
But once again they were wrong.
