House Intelligence Committee Impeachment Hearing – Day Two – 9:00am ET Livestream

Today at 9:00am ET, the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence will hold the second day of open hearings for the impeachment of President Donald Trump. Todays testimony will come from former U.S. Ambassador to Ukraine, Marie Yovanovitch.

Marie Yovanovitch is a woman of dubious character who was removed from the administration prior to the July phone call between U.S. President Trump and Ukraine President Zelenskyy. Ms. Yovanovitch has coordinated both her deposition and public hearing comments with the Democrat staff of the committee.

    Swalwell is an idiot. He just got her to testify that someone from the U.S., like Giulani, should not interfere in any Ukraine investigation. A Republican should now frame a similar question but substitute Biden for Giulani and make her answer.

    But, it won’t happen. Today is apparently softball treatment rather taking this lying beeoch down for all her outrageous conduct. It doesn’t matter whether she has anything germane to say. She is giving tons of potential fodder to the D’s and MSM, while the R’s look weak. It doesn’t matter that she her testimony isn’t relevant to impeachment. The entire process isn’t really relevant, yet it continues.

      Komrad Schiff would not have allowed that question to be asked. This is why people are so upset. If trial ever goes to senate, then President Trump lawyers would not have to play by these rules.

      In essence, it sounds as though the Dems have wasted another day. How many more days of this drek will anyone tune into? How much nothingburger time will the networks give this Schiff-show? One uninteresting witness for the day? Even though the Repubs are being constrained as much as possible by Schiff, they are still able to undercut the testimony of the know-nothing “witnesses” (who, in fact, witnessed nothing).

            Yes, we’ve wrestled with whether to watch.

            On one hand, there’s what you described in your post, plus the idea that we don’t want to help contribute to the viewership.

            On the other hand, we’ve seen how grossly distorted and dishonest is the so-called news coverage of the event, and we know there’s only one way around it, which is to watch for ourselves. So we’ve watched, and been glad of it. We can see for ourselves who’ zoomin’ who in that deadly drama.

            I’ve found it’s helpful to pray before, during and after the broadcasts.

    Just think if we actually had a DOJ/IG/FBI that kept our politicians and state department employees in check to ensure no corruption. Instead we have this fiasco “hearing” happening that tells us everything we already know and the media is telling us it’s not so! And yet they live on to continue their destruction of our constitution and the pillaging of our tax dollars.

      Good point. PDJT should issue an EO that directs AG Barr to develop a law enforcement task force specifically to root out and prosecute US government corruption. Maybe use US Marshalls instead of FBI. Also give the authority to go back in time as long as the statute of limitations apply.

    The Yovanovitch hearing has gone as expected so far.
    1. She offered nothing of substance. Her hurt feelings are irrelevant to A2§2.2 clause two.
    2. Schiff got to demonstrate again how biased and unfair he is. Three ways:
    —allowed leading Dem questions again after shutting Repubs down Wednesday.
    —cut off Stefanik repeatedly.
    —introduced a PDJT live tweet into the hearing as ‘witness intimidation’. Absurd.
    3. Stefanik used her deposition to highlight the Hunter Biden problem that Obama and State knew of and were concerned about. Just what Dems did not need.
    4. Stewart shot down the new focus group tested bribery angle Pelosi floated.

    Wonder how much longer Pelosi will let this schiff show go on?

      Good question on how long Pelosi will allow this. The media is doing their best to tell everyone (including Fox News) that this is devastating for President Trump even though we can see with our own eyes that the dems and their witnesses are getting pummeled and no crime or misdemeanor exists (except on the democrat side).

      I think it will continue because the dem base believes something is happening to remove this President from office.

      Until Trump is removed from office. They’re not playing by the same rules as we are. Legality doesn’t matter. They know they don’t have a case. All that matters is public perception. Senatorial perception. Yes, I’m getting tiresome, but their tactic is classic Goebbels. Repeated make wild accusations until enough people say, hmm, they’re screaming so much that maybe just maybe Orange Man is Bad. And scare enough, or blackmail enough Senators to convict.

      If she actually thinks it still has a chance of removing Trump…then delusion is too kind a description of her.

      But if just wanting to get lots of Trump bashing in to try to influence voters for next Nov….then all of this TV time bashing Trump may be worth it in her eyes.

      I think Pelosi has the votes to get a couple Articles of Impeachment approved in a few weeks….and that’s what she wants for PR purposes in 11 months.

      The question about how much longer Pelosi will let this go on is the big one. Perhaps until it gets to the point that it must be put out of its misery? She must be beside herself as she watches Schiff screw up his big chance…and the Dems’ big chance. Will 14 Dems join the 2 who sided with the Republicans on the vote of whether to begin the “inquiry”? All it takes is 16 Dems voting not to impeach, assuming the Repubs continue to hang solid, to end this entire show. Something like 30+ Dems are from districts Trump won by substantial margins. They must be begging Nancy not to let this go to a vote…or threatening to vote against it if it does. Pelosi is a pretty smart politician, and she has uncharacteristically allowed herself to be boxed in on this issue. She caved and ceded control. Big mistake. Personally, I suspect that this will not make it to the Senate. One way or another, it will fail. I believe the Dems have put themselves into a no-win situation (except with the far, far left bunch). Surely is one of the more interesting dramas we have seen…
