With the impeachment hearings over the past two weeks, it’s become clear that the Democrats don’t have a leg to stand on and the Republicans exposing their plot very easily.
One of those Republicans is Rep. John Ratcliffe. He definitely has shown himself to be one of President Trump’s fiercest allies.
According to The Texas Tribune,
Republicans in the House Intelligence committee largely stuck to a strategy of attacking the legitimacy of the impeachment hearing process and the credibility of the two witnesses, William B. Taylor, the U.S. ambassador to Ukraine and George Kent, deputy assistant secretary of state for European and Eurasian affairs.
Prior to Wednesday’s public hearing, several transcripts of the closed-door hearings were released by the House Intelligence Committee. In those hearings, Ratcliffe displayed the same forceful criticism of the impeachment investigation that he did in the hearing on Wednesday.
Many of his Republican colleagues on Wednesday, including fellow Texas Congressman Rep. Mike Conaway, R-Midland, yielded their time for questions to Ratcliffe, allowing him to take the lead in attempting to poke holes in the process.
Rep. Ratcliffe asked both Ambassador Taylor and George Kent, “So in this impeachment hearing today where we impeach presidents for treason or bribery or other high crimes, where is the impeachable offense in that call? Are either of you here today to assert there was an impeachable offense in that call?”
Neither Kent or Taylor had anything to say at all, nothing. There was complete silence. Obviously, they know there is no impeachable offense which is why they had nothing to say in response to the questions.
We still know what the end result is going to be in this garbage of a game. The House is going to vote and pass the motion to impeach President Trump after these hearings. Then when the actual trial takes place, there will be no real hard evidence whatsoever and the Senate will not convict President Trump.
