House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff is hauling witness after witness behind closed doors for his impeachment kangaroo court.
That move just backfired.
And Adam Schiff just got some really bad news about impeachment that he didn’t want to hear.
On Thursday, European Union envoy Gordon Sondland testified behind closed doors for the Democrats.
Democrats promoted Sondland “breaking” with the President by testifying that Rudy Giuliani was acting on Trump’s behalf in the Ukraine investigation.
But the real news was that Sondland’s testimony completely undercut the impeachment narrative by revealing that no one in the White House ever mentioned investigating the Bidens and that there was never any link between military aide to Ukraine and an investigation into the energy company that employed Hunter Biden.
NBC News reports:
Not only will Sondland assert he never heard the Bidens mentioned in any White House discussions, but he’ll also say he doesn’t recall any discussions about withholding military aid in exchange for help with Trump’s re-election. His prepared statement suggests that Taylor’s Sept. 9 text message was the first he learned about that concern.
“Taking the issue seriously, and given the many versions of speculation that had been circulating about the security aid, I called President Trump directly. I asked the president: ‘What do you want from Ukraine?'” Sondland will tell Congress. “The president responded: ‘Nothing. There is no quid pro quo.'”
Sondland goes on to say: “The president repeated: ‘no quid pro quo’ multiple times. This was a very short call. And I recall the president was in a bad mood.”
Thanks to selective leaks and a pro-impeachment media, Schiff got headlines about Sondland “turning” on the President.
But the truth of Sondland’s testimony is that it reinforced Donald Trump’s position.
