Congressional Malpractice By Pelosi’s Ring Leader

As the sun set over Washington the impeachment trial mind-numbingly droned on.  Just before the 8 o’clock hour Politico published a report revealing the ringleader of the sham impeachment of President Trump “mischaracterized” evidence House Democrats used in their investigation.

The report states Schiffless sent a letter to Waddles Nadler last week summarizing “a trove of evidence from Lev Parnas.”  In one section of the letter, Schiffless claimed Parnas “continued to try to arrange a meeting with President Zelensky” citing a specific text message exchange where Parnas told Giuliani “trying to get us mr Z.”  The rest of the exchange attached to Schiffless’ letter was redacted.

An unredacted version that fell into Politico’s hands shows the interview was with the founder of Burisma, Mykola Zlochevsky, and not Ukrainian President Zelensky.

Democrat officials did not dispute the suggestion Schiffless’ claim was patently false.

A senior GOP aide said, “The most charitable view of the situation is that [Schiff’s] staff committed the equivalent of Congressional malpractice by not looking more than an inch deep to determine the facts before foisting this erroneous information on his colleagues and the American public.”

“But given the selective redactions and contextual clues, it seems as though Chairman Schiff sought to portray an innocuous meeting with Ukrainian oligarch Mykola Zlochevsky as an insidious one with the President of Ukraine simply because both of their surnames start with the letter Z.”

One of my heroes from the House Intelligence Committee impeachment proceedings back in November of 2019, Rep. Elise Stefanik (R-NY), responded to the breaking news in the following tweet:

“Schiff’s sham impeachment is littered with mischaracterizations, falsehoods, & political desperation. The more Schiff speaks to the American people, the more the support for impeachment is obliterated in the court of public opinion.”
This concludes our broadcast day.  Schmuck Schumer has introduced a total of seven amendments in eleven hours so far.  Each amendment calling for subpoenaing witnesses and documents has been shot down tabled by a vote of 53-47.
