John Ratcliffe: Adam Schiff’s “Media Leaks to Frame Impeachment Narrative Are False”….

Representative John Ratcliffe appears with Martha MacCallum to discuss the ongoing closed-door testimony from officials upset about President Trump’s unorthodox approach to foreign policy.

Mr. Ratcliffe notes the purposeful leaks from Chairman Adam Schiff and his Lawfare staff to their aligned media scribes are intentionally false by design.

      This man knows how to communicate clearly.

      Helpful explaination of what is going on, all the jargon about quid pro quo obscures the point.

      If I am tracking accurately, the Democrats want to legitimise this pattern of financial & political predation that privledged elites in our government have gotten away with because the DoJ never prosecuted them. Hence, a Beltway culture has evolved that normalises conduct that compromises our foreign policy, and destroys our reputation in international relations. It also degrades the institutions & corrodes the integrity within our body politic.

      In Ukraine, that includes intruding into domestic affairs, esp muscling in to co opt control of developing markets & profitable industries,

      Also, Biden is recorded chortling about insisting the prosecution of his son be dropped before releasing funds,
      which I do not know why the hell we’d be handing out to Ukraine anyways!

      Why involve ourselves in Ukraine, which already has enough problems with corruption ? Then the beltway stampedes over to pile on? .

      We had a generation of politicians whose deficiency in statesmanship has created messes far beyond our own borders. .

      So the impeachers claim , in vernacular, is that swamp drainage is grounds for political impeachment of POTUS?
      What the HELL do they think we voted him in for? President Trump is doing his job. There is something about the bogus crap re DNC hacks, more of their damn unsecured servers , and other murky doings . Why are we bogged down with Democrats trail of shady deals with underworld characters and Blumenthal types?

      their drsmatic concoctions are an energy sink.

      Anyway, this guy described a specific interaction, explained the technique the interrogators use to distort facts by leading the witness” . And he isn’t chicken to cite names either.

      Liberate Our country, sir. Or we will have to.

Why not ask these Dems to produce these findings instead of just saying they have proof! Shiff said he had evidence about Russia but never produced it yet no one has queried him about it! Always asking the Republicans to defend against the Dems. Ask the Dems to put up or shut up! The pressure is ALWAYS on the GOP side!

      When you talk about this (if you have the courage, and I spectrum this to all readers) it’s incredibly important to point out something which should be painfully obvious — they aren’t following the law or the process. They don’t expect to win. They [both sides] are making a lot of noise in prefer to appeal to your confirmation bias. This is more about campaigning and complaining than any genuine process.

      Everyone needs to try to see beyond the noise to look at what they are trying to accomplish.

      Democrats can’t run on prosperity. They can’t run on any sort of popular policy. They can’t even run on the race card because in case you haven’t noticed, race relations are actually better under Trump than under Obama. This is all they’ve got and they are playing the heck out off it… Talk about beating a dead donkey…

At each redistricting, they kept changing the lines incrementally, until they had enough communities “over the hill” that are more urban to dilute our votes. The 15th district was originally located in the San Jose area, some 40 miles from here. We have been so gerrymandered over the past 20 years that our representative often changes from election to election, two years ago (and I still can’t explain it), Swalwell wasn’t on my ballot, my representative was Ro Khanna, then in 2018 Swalwell was back as the choice. In my part of the district, we all voted for Rudy Peters, a navy veteran, but couldn’t overcome the votes from Hayward, Union City, and Castro Valley.

    Give me a break. This is how Republicans fight – with toothless resolutions, Guarantee the only reason Graham is even going this far is because he’s getting calls to his office over his recent non-committal comments about impeachment.

    I’ve had my suspicions about the integrity of William Taylor. The text message seemed a little too perfect in explicitly suggesting a “quid pro quo”. It seems about as genuine as the setting up of Papadopoulos. I would wager anything that he was working with Schiff and Co. to craft that text as just another breadcrumb to be “discovered” later as corroboration. The hope was probably to get an ambiguous response which could have been spun as further corroboration. Luckily it appears to have been just as explicitly shot down by Sondheim at the time. It would be nice if while he was being “deposed” under penalty of perjury he was asked about any contact with Schiff et al.

    oy…im a fan of ratcliffe of course but i think he is making a mistake here
    similar to how we let the narrative get away from us in the russia hoax– then the only actual crime that could have been problematic was if the trump campaign conspired aided abetted etc to actually hack into the dem computer (or possibly even phish podeta)…everything else was not a crime

    here too the only possible high crime or misdemeanor is if trump asked for investigation of biden for the purpose of 2020 elections in exchange for money…thats it…everything else is kosher…a quid pro quo is kosher if its for purposes of investigating 2016 elections, rooting out corruption, looking into biden family for any other purpose beside specifically hampering his 2020 chances—and unless there is a recording of trump stating that, the black hats have nothing

    … Replaced by Justice Thomas to preside over the Senate Sham Trial.

    … compromising them and every other Senate Co-Conspirator
    … requiring them to be “RECUSED” from the SENATE JURY.
    =====
    AS PREDICTED above:

    Majority Leader Mitch McConnell told reporters he has no control over how long the Senate would take to conclude a trial if the House votes to impeach President Trump.

    “I have no idea how long this will go on,” said the Kentucky Republican…

    If the House passes articles of impeachment, the Senate would have to follow existing rules for conducting the trial unless 100 senators agreed to change the rules.

    The trial would take place every afternoon except Sunday, and Chief Justice John Roberts would preside.

    McConnell said the rules give him very little latitude about how the trial is conducted. Motions would come from Roberts, not lawmakers, unless all senators agreed…

    McConnell said “there are all kinds of potentials,” depending on what articles the House sends to the Senate.

      It is not a house “law” but the Constitution – members of Congress may NOT be prosecuted for anything said on the floor. Outside, in public, is another matter, but while on the floor they could reveal classified information in public on the floor, speak the most vile calumnies, lie, etc. and there can be no prosecution. A motion of censure, or expulsion from Congress, OTOH, are entirely possible.

    The very word “secrecy” is repugnant in a free and open society; and we are as a people inherently and historically opposed to secret societies, to secret oaths and to secret proceedings.

    Pro wrestling and Congress are pretty much the same thing, with the exception that more gets accomplished in pro wrestling.

    A lot of sound and fury – but once the microphones and cameras get turned off they’re all playing for the same team.

    Evil Adam Schiff is a pathological LIAR and a very crooked and corrupt Democrat. I hope God will punish him and all the evil Democrats for hurting President Trump and his supporters constantly.

      The dems need to force Schiff to answer what he’s hiding. Republicans need to force the issue.
