Adam Schiff thought he was on a roll.
The Fake News Media reported that Schiff racked up a string of victories in the impeachment witch hunt that made it more likely Donald Trump would be removed from office.
But Adam Schiff never imagined one impeachment attack on Trump would backfire in a major way.
Adam Schiff called Pentagon official Laura Cooper to testify behind his closed-door kangaroo court.
Cooper serves as the Deputy Assistant Secretary of Defense for Ukraine, Russia, and Eurasia and played a role in advocating for the 400 million dollars in military aid to Ukraine.
Democrats expected her to deliver more “devastating” testimony as to why the money was withheld.
But Cooper’s appearance blew up in their faces.
North Carolina Republican Mark Meadows emerged after her testimony and crowed that it contradicted Ukraine Ambassador Bill Taylor’s testimony that there was a quid pro quo for the military aid in exchange for Ukraine investigating the Bidens.
Democrats were largely tight-lipped emerging from Cooper’s deposition. However, Rep. Mark Meadows (R-N.C.), a conservative ally of the president, said elements of her testimony conflicted with that of William Taylor, the top U.S. diplomat in Ukraine who testified a day earlier. His testimony provided the first direct link between Trump and an effort to tie the military aid to politically motivated investigations. Meadows declined to detail the purported discrepancies.
Cooper’s testimony comes despite the Pentagon blowing off a deadline last week to comply with a subpoena for documents related to the episode.
Cooper was also the first Defense Department witness to defy a directive not to testify, a sign that Trump’s blockade of Democrats’ impeachment inquiry has continued to erode. Several senior State Department officials and a former National Security Council official have already taken the same route.
On Wednesday, three Defense officials indicated they were collecting and reviewing documents in response to the House subpoena but were sending them to the White House, rather than Congress, to screen for potential privileged materials.
One thing Americans should remember is that the supposedly “damning” revelations are not from witness testimony.
The Democrats are leaking unchallenged opening statements from witnesses that fall apart under direct cross examination.
But because Adam Schiff won’t release the transcripts of witness testimony, the fake and corrupt news media can use the cherry-picked leaks from Schiff to paint a false picture of Trump’s guilt in this phony scandal.
