There’s another dimension to the current Progressive bloody-mindedness, that being the
absolutely shameless lies of the highest Democrat leadership. I’ve previously touched on the lack of any mainstream media (MSM) accountability that has enabled this pathetic situation. However, even though this is the case, human beings with even a shred of morality or decency would hesitate to take full advantage. This is clearly not the case for the two top House of Representative members who are driving the Trump impeachment effort, those being Speaker Nancy Pelosi and Chair Adam Schiff.
Chairman Adam Schiff
Just for starters, this is the man who for over two years appeared on every MSM news show that would have him claiming that there is “ample evidence” that the Trump campaign colluded with Russians.
Schiff said there is evidence — heard by the committee behind closed doors —that he can’t talk about publicly because it remains classified.
And yet, when the Mueller Report cleared the President, his campaign (and any American citizen for that matter) of “collusion” with the Russians Mr. Schiff didn’t admit that he had been lying all along. Rather he simply moved on the the Ukraine “collusion” claim.
However, with the benefit of recent revelations is appears most likely that Mr. Schiff and his staff “colluded” with a partisan Democrat CIA bureaucrat to manufacture a “whistleblower” complaint against the President based entirely on hearsay evidence. They assumed that the President would refuse, due to Executive Privilege, to release the transcript of his call with the new Ukrainian President, thus allowing the “whistleblower’s” unfounded claims to characterize the President’s behavior.
When the President blew this plan out of the water by releasing both the transcript and the “whistleblower” complaint to the public, Chairman Schiff was placed in an impossible position. That is, by release of both documents the public could compare the claims of the complaint against the actual conversation. And thus the entire “whistleblower” complaint was shown to be untrue.
So, what is a partisan Democrat to do? Well, in Adan Schiff’s case lie through his teeth. Chairman Schiff sat down in the House Intelligence Committee’s leadership chair and made up out of thin air a rendition of the President’s conversation. The made up “transcript” quoted by Chairman Schiff “confirmed” all of the “whistleblower’s” claims.
When Mr. Schiff was called on his lies to the public from the Intelligence Committee’s Chairman chair he admitted the lie (there was no other way out) but claimed that his comments had been “parody.” I challenge anyone to view the video and claim that this is so. I also challenge anyone to show another example of the Chairmanship of the House Intelligence Committee being used as a platform to disseminate parody to the American public.
Speaker Nancy Pelosi
Now, you might think that the Speaker of the House, Nancy Pelosi, would be a bit more circumspect than a mere Chairman of the House Intelligence Committee. Boy would you be wrong. In fact, Speaker Pelosi, after Rep. Schiff had admitted his “parody” lie, claimed on national television that it wasn’t a lie at all!
House Speaker Nancy Pelosi falsely claimed in an interview with ABC’s George Stephanopoulos that House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff’s fabrication of the transcript between President Trump and Ukrainian President Zelensky was actually real. …
“I know you support Chairman Schiff, but was it right for him to have that dramatic interpretation of the president’s transcript of the phone call at the hearing last week?” Stephanopoulos asked.
“I want the American people to know what that phone call was about. I want them to hear, it. So yeah it’s fair,” Pelosi said Thursday on “Good Morning America.”
“It’s sad, but it’s using the president’s own words,” she added.
“But those weren’t the president’s words, it was an interpretation of the president’s words. They’re saying he made this up,” he replied.
“He did not make it up,” Pelosi insisted.
Speaker Pelosi has also attempted to wrap her impeachment obsession in the lie that she and her party are “defending the Constitution.”
There is no mistaking that House Speaker Nancy Pelosi is trying to wrap the Democrat-led impeachment inquiry against President Donald Trump in the Constitution, but in reality she is undermining it.
In announcing her decision last week to go forward with the inquiry, she referenced the Constitution multiple times.
During a joint news conference with House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff on Wednesday, Pelosi took it to the next level, saying “Constitution” dozens of times.
One of the more ironic and troubling instances came near the end of the 30-minute session when the speaker said, “We have to be worthy of the Constitution as we go forward. We have to be fair to the president, and that’s why this is an inquiry and not an outright impeachment, and we have to give the president his chance to exonerate himself.”
Did you catch that? “Exonerate himself.”
In other words, in her mind and Schiff’s too, as I will show in a moment, Trump is guilty of an impeachable offense until he proves himself innocent.
It doesn’t take a law degree to know that this statement is unconstitutional.
Not only did Speaker Pelosi directly contradict the constitution in her above statement, but she is leading a party that is on the record (at the Presidential candidate level) of opposing it and demanding it be subverted or destroyed in service of their political goals.
Thus Speaker Nancy Pelosi and Rep. Adam Schiff claim to be “defending” a Constitution that their party is openly seeking to undermine and destroy.
This is another shameless, pathetic and bloody-minded lie by our supposed “betters”.
