House Impeachment Public Hearings – Day One – William B. Taylor and George Kent – 10:00am Livestream…

The House Intelligence Committee will begin holding public hearings to impeach President Donald Trump today at 10:00am EDT.  The hearings are carefully scripted, organized and planned. Day One begins with Ambassador William Taylor and Deputy Assistant Secretary George Kent.  To support the Democrat impeachment effort all major media networks are carrying the event live, and promoting their anticipation of drama.

Impeachment Chairman Adam Schiff has threatened severe punishment if any member of congress speaks publicly about the CIA helping to organize the ‘whistleblower‘ effort.

Mr. Taylor currently serves as the Chargé D’affaires for the U.S. State Department in Ukraine. Mr. Kent serves as Deputy Assistant Secretary in the European and Eurasian Bureau at the U.S. Department of State.  Both State Dept. officials disagree with President Trump’s foreign policy which they hope will lead to his removal from office.

    ‘The Real Ukraine Controversy’: John Solomon Exposes How Rogue US Embassy Conducted Foreign Policy

    “It is neither a conspiracy theory nor a debunked or retracted story. U.S. embassy officials DID apply pressure to try to stop Ukrainian prosecutors from pursuing certain cases.”

    See 1.30 on this videoclip where Republican Chris Stewart gets Kent and Ambassador Taylor to agree that noone is above the law, even if they are running to be President. They should face justice like everyone else.

    I love how these two toadstools, especially Taylor, sit there and try and pretend they don’t have an agenda. Of course they do, and they make it so obvious. If you don’t have an agenda then why does your testimony lean towards everything that cannot be proven in a court of law. I didn’t see the whole hearing, not even half, but I wish to God someone would have asked those two dimbulbs this, “Gentlemen, why exactly do you suppose that you are hear today? What do you think or believe is going to be accomplished since you have no first hand knowledge about anything?” Crickets, crickets. I’m so embarrassed to be and American today. These sick, twisted, tickets in our Congress, wasting time, money and goodwill to put forth this pathetic, childish nonsense. A third grader could tell you there is no there there. Disgusting.

        Someone on the Five is sympathizing that they have to hire their own lawyers in order to give their important “non-partisan” testimony.

        Oh boo hoo.

        A) Could they not have availed themselves of similar protection as others who decided not to testify?

        B) Does anyone believe that they are actually paying for their own lawyers?

        C) Who exactly ARE their lawyers? Not from Lawfare, surely?

    So let me get this straight , the whistleblower gets wind of a possible interview that is to be on “ cnn” and that Zelensky will announce investigations into the Bidens so he runs to congress in August to let them know the “ rumors “ Zelensky comes to town during the UN and congress thinks this is when he will interview with “ cnn” so congress aka NaN announces an impeachment inquiry without even seeing the phone call yet , so they jump the gun and it didn’t even happen 😂😂😂 damn fools and looks like somebody fed them a story 😂😂

      its the FISA RERUN all over – LEAK TO THE NEWS – Fake news – and the ARTICLE incites some activist fool to do something. I am giving them the benefit of the doubt that they werent in on it and WERE TRICKED (TAYLOR looks DUPED but definitely PRO-Europe and Anti-Trump)..

      and without them seeing the transcript they couldnt clarify the SPY’D Converstion (Baited lie whispered out to see who is spying and trace them later by what they say; HENCE THE IMPORTANCE OF dates of awareness).

      pg 50 vidnman transcript – CAUGHT – vindman says – As opposed to going into the standard communications system, it went into a different type, a different, more secure system… while i did have an account, it was not functioning properly, so i had to go analog and take a look at – get a hard copy of it – make some — annotate some changes to it, ….

    I’ve followed Sundance for at least three years and never commented but had to pitch in now Schiff said: “Impeachment Chairman Adam Schiff has threatened severe punishment if any member of congress speaks publicly about the CIA helping to organize the ‘whistleblower‘ effort.“

    1. What the h*** authority does he have to make such a threat!?

    2. Even if Horowitz or Dunham indicts what is the probability of getting a jury to convict in DC?

      What is the possibility that if there are indictments that any trial takes place before the 2020 election? And if Trump loses, the new Dem AG drops all the charges? I believe AG Barr is intentionally stalling to realize that scenario.

        Hi ezgoer-and I agree that Barr is stalling. NO ONE IS GOING TO JAIL. Do away with the hope that the “Spygate” perpetrators are going to jail, because they are not going to jail. And as we await ANOTHER supposedly “devastating” IG report… it will just be another nothing burger.

        I’ve posted here several times, after 30 plus years as a Fed employee, I know for certain that anyone who’s anyone in the Swamp has one or more “get out of jail free” cards Now there were people fired, but they just went to work at a cushy, high salary job in the private sector. And there are people who we know were involved that are still at their job. Bruce Ohr comes to mind. And Peter Strzok, who was fired, was reported by the GW Pundit to have a visitors pass issued by Wray and Peter was participating in meetings at the FBI

        Everyone who could be indicted has let Barr know about their “get out of jail free: card(s) and will play them if they are indicted. Or their are friends of the conspirators that will use their card if need be.

        Nope-if you want justice you’ll have to mete it out yourself

    President Trump sets foreign policy, not unelected ambassadors. Taylor has an obligation to follow US foreign policy or resign.

    Taylor said it was clear Trump made aid conditional on investigations. That makes it US foreign policy. But Taylor had 3 meetings with the Ukraine President about the aid and didn’t follow what was clear policy(according to him). Nor did he follow US policy in his many meetings with Ukraine officials by linking aid to investigations.

    Again, he had a duty to follow The President’s policy or resign.

    He is either a) unethical or b) lying. Pick one.

    • The only thing that should be abundantly clear – to Congressmen and Senators of both T-shirt colors, is this: “there is no high crime here.” Zero, zilch, nada.

      The only reason why Democratic Representatives would vote for anything is … because they are obedient lemmings, “loyal even unto death” to their Party Bosses and indifferent to their constituents, and to the Constitution … voting because “we were ordered to do so, and We Must Obey.”

      The comments about “international corruption in almost every country, including the United States,” do(!) resonate with American voters, who fully understood (as the Ukranian people also do …) that “Drain The Swamp™” actually means: “Take a Bite Out Of International High Crime!”

      The only people who would want these proceedings are … those who are “international criminals themselves.” And, gosh, where have I heard these names before?

    Who on God’s green earth wears a bow tie to an impeachment hearing. As a witness. Who wakes up in the morning to face the American people, to face the world, to testify about unseating the elected leader of the free world — and thinks to himself, shall I wear the green bow tie? And then decides that he will.

    What goes through a man’s head to DECIDE to present himself for the history books — for the gravest of testimony before God and his fellow humans dressed as a ten-year-old or a CLOWN?

      Hi Newhere…you ask “What goes through a man’s head to DECIDE to present himself for the history books — for the gravest of testimony before God and his fellow humans dressed as a ten-year-old or a CLOWN?”

      Someone who sees themselves as the smartest person in the room, no matter the room or the subject. Someone that has been thoroughly indoctrinated by our college professor Marxists. These people really do believe they are right…that America is an evil empire that must give up it’s sovereignty and join the rest of the world in a New World order socialist utopia. Our universities,from top to bottom are Marxist, American hating, tax payer funded re-education camps.

      Parents and students pay big money and/or go into debt for the privilege of having Marxist/ Communist, ideas pounded into their head on a daily basis. I have read many cases where college professors have mini-busts of Marx or Lenin on their desk.

      Then there is the social side, where they are told that men can have periods and tampon machines are installed in the Men’s room, Think about what I just typed. Tampon dispensers are installed in Men’s bathrooms at many colleges.

    My takeaways after 5.5 hours: There is no hard evidence of malfeasance or crime. It may be the President working through his personal attorney mucked up State Department bureaucrat efforts in pursuit of their USA policy objectives, but . . .

    (1) This is presidential prerogative,
    (2) Official State channels were (allegedly) blocking Zelensky from passing helpful information about 2016 election which he wanted to share with USA, and
    (3) Democrats do not care about damage being done or worse damage potential if their impeachment would succeed. They hate our country, its history and traditions, and most of all our elected President.

    Nothing worthy of impeachment was presented, just the usual phony outrage. The President may have been out of concert with bureaucrats, but not surprising after 2.5 years of subversive Resistance.

    This coup needs to die right now and never make it to the Senate. If it gets to the Senate, it must be thrown out immediately.

    Filling federal judicial seats is one of the main goals of the Trump agenda. Trying an impeached president would stop cold the work of the Judiciary Committee. It would squander the opportunity to get judicial nominees through committee while Klobuchar, Booker, and Kamala Harris are busy campaigning.

    A trial would tie up the chief justice of SCOTUS. Ruth Bader Ginsburg called in sick to work today. A trial in the Senate would cause the Supreme Court to limp along.

    Don’t play stupid games.
