The Democrats’ impeachment witch hunt is crashing up against the rocks.
Bad news continues to pour in for the Democrats.
And now Nancy Pelosi instantly regretted saying this one word about impeachment.
Democrats are struggling to make any of their impeachment allegations stick with the public.
Nancy Pelosi is now accusing Donald Trump of engaging in “bribery” over military aid to Ukraine because that is what polled the strongest.
But Texas Republican Congressman John Ratcliffe pointed out that in over 3,500 pages of deposition transcripts, the word bribery only appeared one time – and that was with regards to then Vice President Joe Biden strong arming the former Ukrainian President to fire a prosecutor that had been investigating his son’s company or else risk losing one billion dollars in aid.
“The problem is in an impeachment inquiry that the speaker of the House says it is all about bribery, where bribery is the impeachable offense,” Ratcliffe said. “No witness has used the word bribery to describe President Trump’s conduct. None of them.”
“The number of times any witness has been asked whether President Trump’s conduct constituted bribery before ambassador [Marie] Yovanovitch was asked by my colleague, Congressman Stewart, last Thursday, is zero.”
“The number of times witnesses have used the word bribery or bribe to describe President Trump’s conduct in the last six weeks of this inquiry is zero,” Ratcliffe said. “In fact, in these 3,500 pages exactly one time.”
“Ironically is it appears in a description of not President Trump’s conduct,” Ratcliffe said. “It appears in a description of Vice President Biden’s conduct.”
The bribery charge is another dud for the Democrats.
Republicans asked every single witness the Democrats called if they could provide any evidence the President engaged in bribery.
And every single witness said they could not.
This disaster is why polls show the American people turning against impeachment.
