Democrats walked in to the first day of their impeachment witch hunt thinking they had the goods on Donald Trump.
Adam Schiff and his allies in the Fake News Media bellowed about a supposed bombshell in the testimony that convicted Donald Trump.
But in the end, this smoking gun on impeachment completely blew up in Nancy Pelosi’s face.
Fake news reporters and Democrats seized on testimony from Ukraine Ambassador Bill Taylor that one of his aides overheard a July 26 phone call between European Union Ambassador Gordon Sondland and President Trump where Trump supposedly asked Sondland specifically about the investigations into the Bidens.
Democrats and the Fake News claimed this explicitly tied Donald Trump to requesting the supposedly “politically motivated” investigations.
Business Insider reports:
Taylor said that a member of his staff saw Sondland call Trump at a restaurant the day after Trump’s phone call with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky. After the call, Sondland told Taylor’s staffer that Trump was focused on Ukraine investigating former Vice President Joe Biden and his son Hunter, Taylor said.
“The member of my staff could hear President Trump on the phone asking Ambassador Sondland about the investigations,” Taylor said on Wednesday. “Ambassador Sondland told President Trump the Ukrainians were ready to move forward.”
Taylor said that following the call, his staffer asked Sondland what Trump “thought about Ukraine.”
Taylor said Sondland “responded that President Trump cares more about the investigations of Biden, which Giuliani was pressing for.”
This bombshell was in reality a dud.
Americans saw the transcript of the July 25 phone call between Trump and Ukrainian President Zelensky.
That transcript already showed President Trump asking Zelesnky about an investigation into Burisma – a corrupt energy company paying Hunter Biden $50,000 per month.
The fake news tried this trick repeatedly during the Russian collusion hoax.
CNN and other fake news outlets constantly latched on to insignificant details and hyped them as “major developments” that caused the “walls to close in” on Donald Trump.
Within 24 hours the stories collapsed as they were exposed as either fake news hoaxes or overhyped exaggerations devoid of any context.
Taylor’s supposed “bombshell” about the July 26 call between Trump and Sondland is another nothing-burger the Fake News is trying to warp into a major scandal.
