Americans Know The Difference Between Schiff And Shinola

It was widely reported during the confirmation hearings for Justice Brett Kavanaugh that women across the country tuned into the televised proceedings to hear the star witness crucify an innocent man.  Christine Blasey Ford’s voice was shaky throughout, and at one point, she could be seen crying.

That was the point; to elicit sympathy for a woman who clearly lied.  She was unable to specify where the alleged “attack” occurred or who else may have witnessed it.  Not one person ever came forward to verify her claims.

Ford’s attorney, Debra Katz, while speaking at a Feminist Legal Theory Conference at the University of Baltimore said Ford made the decision to make her decades-old accusations about Kavanaugh because, “Elections have consequences, but he will always have an asterisk next to his name.  When he takes a scalpel to Roe v. Wade, we will know who he is.  That is part of what motivated Christine.”

As Democrats frantically work to politically damage President Trump, fast forward to today when the sham impeachment hearings resume with the testimony of Marie “Masha” Yovanovitch.

NBC’s Chelsea Stahl reports Yovanovitch is going to “tug at America’s heartstrings.”  The anti-Trump apparatchik was removed from her post in Ukraine around May of this year.  She reportedly “choked up” during her closed-door deposition last month as she described her firing.

In the transcript of President Trump’s July 25 phone call, Ukraine President Vlodymyr Zelensky said, “It was great that you were the first one who told me that she was a bad ambassador because I agree with you 100%. Her attitude towards me was far from the best as she admired the previous president and she was on his side. She would not accept me as a new president well enough.”

Yovanovitch testified she was unaware Zelensky, who was elected to root out corruption, did not like her.

Also in her deposition, Yovanovitch acknowledged “there may be some truth to [former prosecutor Yiriy] Lutsenko’s claim she gave him a ‘do not prosecute’ list.”

Asked if she ever urged Lutsenko “not to prosecute” individuals or entities, she responded, “Conversations about, ‘You need to be sure that, you know, there is a real case that is not politically motivated, that this isn’t just harassment and pressure — so those conversations, you know, certainty took place.”

Lutsenko has drawn scrutiny in recent days because he was Ukraine's prosecutor general – broadly equivalent to the Attorney General in the United States – when an investigation was halted into Burisma.  At the time, then-Vice President Joe Biden's son Hunter sat on the board of the company. 

She said that names were “probably” used, including the Anti-Corruption Bureau of Ukraine (NABU) Director Artem Sytnyk who, according to the Hill attempted to influence the 2016 vote in favor of Hillary Clinton.

Yovanovitch has already lied under oath.  Democrats are aware she did.  Republicans will make certain to remind the public of this.

Bear this in mind as the dog and pony show drags on, House Democrats know the Senate will not vote to remove President Trump from office if they vote on Articles of Impeachment, but left-leaning Politico is already pushing a scheme to turn the impeachment vote in the Senate into a secret ballot if just three Republican senators vote to remove him.

If you decide to visit the link at Politico, be certain to read the update at the end of the article.  Apparently, the author considered the unconstitutionality of her remedy and included a disclaimer stating “it is clear the Senate has the power to make its own rules over the trial proceedings.  Those rules have historically required a simple majority of support.”
