The circus is in full swing at the impeachment hearings. The Democrats are quickly realizing they have no idea what they are doing and have nothing to make a case against President Trump. The Republicans were able to expose them very easily.
Republican Rep. John Ratcliffe has clearly emerged as one of President Trump’s toughest defenders. He completely caught witnesses off guard by asking them point-blank what crime has the president committed.
Rep. Ratcliffe asked both Ambassador Taylor and George Kent, “So in this impeachment hearing today where we impeach presidents for treason or bribery or other high crimes, where is the impeachable offense in that call? Are either of you here today to assert there was an impeachable offense in that call?”
They were both stunned by the question and were completely silent for several moments. Neither one was able to answer the question.
According to The Texas Tribune,
Republicans in the House Intelligence committee largely stuck to a strategy of attacking the legitimacy of the impeachment hearing process and the credibility of the two witnesses, William B. Taylor, the U.S. ambassador to Ukraine and George Kent, deputy assistant secretary of state for European and Eurasian affairs.
Prior to Wednesday’s public hearing, several transcripts of the closed-door hearings were released by the House Intelligence Committee. In those hearings, Ratcliffe displayed the same forceful criticism of the impeachment investigation that he did in the hearing on Wednesday.
Many of his Republican colleagues on Wednesday, including fellow Texas Congressman Rep. Mike Conaway, R-Midland, yielded their time for questions to Ratcliffe, allowing him to take the lead in attempting to poke holes in the process.
Ambassador Taylor and Goerge Kent both know there is no impeachable offense, that’s why they couldn’t answer the question. Regardless, there will still be a vote on whether or not to proceed with the hearings. The crooked House will pass it to Senate where they’ll expose the Democrats ridiculous plot and put an end to this.
