House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff is running point on the Democrat Impeachment Coup.
Schiff may have just scored his biggest win yet.
That’s because Adam Schiff just released the one smoking gun that could end Trump’s Presidency.
Adam Schiff released text messages between former special envoy to Ukraine Kurt Volker and U.S. ambassador to the European Union Gordon D. Sondland where they discussed drafting a statement for the Ukrainian President to issue about investigating corruption that would have won the Ukrainian President a much sought-after White House visit.
The statement would have referenced the 2016 election as well as Burisma — the Ukrainian energy company that paid Hunter Biden $50,000 per month in what looks like a clear example of influence peddling.
The New York Times reports:
“We intend to initiate and complete a transparent and unbiased investigation of all available facts and episodes, including those involving Burisma and the 2016 U.S. elections, which in turn will prevent the recurrence of this problem in the future,” Mr. Volker said in what appears to be the language he was proposing.
Mr. Sondland quickly replied, “Perfect,” adding that they should send it along to an adviser to the Ukrainian president.
Four days later, Mr. Sondland texted Mr. Volker, asking if they still wanted the Ukrainian president “to give us an unequivocal draft” specifically citing the two issues that Mr. Trump has been focused on: Burisma, the Ukrainian energy company that had put Mr. Biden’s younger son, Hunter Biden, on its board, and Mr. Trump’s belief that Ukraine had interfered in the 2016 American elections to benefit Hillary Clinton.
Mr. Volker replied: “That’s the clear message so far. . .”
But there is one problem with Schiff’s theory that these text messages represent a smoking gun.
The statement was never issued.
The administration never ended up demanding an investigation into Burisma for a White House visit.
