The Democrat rammed a resolution to continue an impeachment inquiry against President Trump providing all sorts of power to Rep. Adam Schiff. Even two Democrats and all Republicans could not support such a patrician and unprecedented sham. Schiff has all sorts of power to be the prosecutor, judge, jury, and executioner in this case throwing out the same due process that would and should be applied to average Americans in Schiff’s quest to have Trump impeached to tarnish him in his goal to prevent Trump from being reelected.
Not only is Schiff provided the power to oversee this kangaroo court, he is actually a material witness after it was revealed he and his staff coordinated and collaborated with the so-called “whistleblower.” The whistleblower gave hearsay information to Schiff’s staff and was assisted by Schiff’s staff to get an attorney, who would work with Schiff as the bases to seek an impeachment inquiry, had called for “resistance” and “impeachment” in 2017.
The whistleblower lied about meeting with Schiff and Schiff lied about him and his staff having contact with the whistleblower. The information provided by the whistleblower was revealed to be false as Trump released the transcript of his call with Ukraine President Volodymyr Zelensky, who verified he was under no pressure from Trump and was the one who originally admitted corruption from the previous administration with connection to former Vice-president Joe Biden’s request to fire prosecutor, Viktor Shokin, who was looking into criminal activity of Burisma, the gas company that Biden’s son, Hunter, was on. Biden threatened to withhold $1 billion in government aid if the prosecutor was not fired and then later bragged about it.
Schiff will not reveal the whistleblower. However, Real Clear Investigation identified him as Eric Ciaramella, an analyst with the CIA and a registered Democrat, who previously worked with Trump critic, John Brennan, with Biden. After being accused of working against Trump and leaking negative reports, Ciaramella left the Trump White House in 2017 according to the National Security Council. Ciaramella also worked with Democratic National Committee (DNC) operative, Alexandra Chalupa, who was working with the former corrupt Ukraine government against Trump to get Hillary elected.
Then it was discovered Ciaramella worked closely on the Trump-Russian collusion hoax, which was produced by Fusion GPS and financed by Hillary Clinton’s campaign and the DNC. Ciaramella is connected on emails with key individuals who pushed the hoax. Ciaramella was also part of the email chain celebrating the eventual signing of the $1 billion U.S. loan guarantee to Ukraine after the prosecutor was fired.
Ciaramella is partisan and had a mission to collaborate a false story with Schiff to produce an impeachment inquiry. He has no credibility and even his hearsay and fabricated story has been proven false and treasonous with intent to falsely accuse Trump. Did Ciaramella blow the whistle on Biden for the exact same thing for far worse than what he is accusing Trump of doing?
Schiff will not allow Republicans to cross examine Ciaramella or to have Trump’s attorneys present. Schiff has prevented Republicans from subpoenas or testimony on behalf of the president. Instead, Schiff has held secret hearings and closed-door interviews. Schiff has provided an inaccurate description of the transcript. He then takes testimony and only leaks minimal parts of the testimony to the media that benefits his case, providing no transparency.
Imagine the common person being accused of a crime, not being able to confront his accuser. All the while, the accuser is working with the prosecutor, who is a material witness in a coordinated conspiracy to conjure a crime based on false information from hearsay. We know hearsay is inadmissible in court. Yet, the prosecutor has also made himself the judge and attorney for the hearsay witness to prevent the hearsay witness from answering any questions from the defense. Imagine being set up with a crime which the prosecutor then reads your statement out of context and ignores your witnesses (Zelensky) who states, “There was no pressure.” Imagine all of the investigating being done in secret with you having no rights to have your attorney present, no subpoena power, and no testimony on your behalf. Imagine a prosecutor with the power to also be the judge to determine your guilt using a false witness and his own personal bias therefore finding you guilty of a crime because he doesn’t like you and has a desire to destroy you personally. Would this be a fair trial? Would this be allowed against any common person in America? We certainly hope not.
There should be an impeachment alright; but not against President Trump. It should be against Schiff and the Deep State that have coordinated an effort to conspire against our president. They have such a desire to charge President Trump with impeachment; they are willing to be dishonest, disingenuous, and deceitful in every possible way by giving unprecedented power to Schiff to flaunt the law making the Democrats full of Schiff.
