Let’s face it, there was never much substance to the Democrats’ big impeachment push in the first place. This was a partisan piece of warfare that had its roots in the Mueller Report – a document that did everything but exonerate President Trump for every bit of wrongdoing the left has accused him of for two years. The Ukraine call changed nothing, other than it gave Nancy Pelosi just the fig leaf she needed to pretend that something extraordinary had shifted and NOW, well, now impeachment is the only choice we have. Uh-huh. Sell it somewhere else.
But even if you happen to be one of those dolts who thinks Pelosi and the Democrats might have something on Trump, a bombshell that came out Tuesday has blown a hole in the U.S.S. Impeachment. It’s sinking fast and headed for the bottom of the ocean. Any Democrats who hope to have a political career after this might want to grab a life vest before it’s too late.
From Fox News:
A newly unearthed document shows that Ukrainian officials had opened a new probe into the firm linked to Hunter Biden months before President Trump’s phone call with that country’s leader, Fox News contributor John Solomon reported late Tuesday.
Solomon said Tuesday on “Hannity” that the U.S. government knew Ukraine was planning to look again into activities at Burisma Holdings, an energy company that employed then-Vice President Joe Biden’s son as a member of its board of directors, early this year. The report is noteworthy because President Trump has been accused by Democrats of threatening in July to withhold foreign aid to Ukraine unless its new president pursued an investigation into the company and the younger Biden’s role there.
“The U.S. government had open-source intelligence and was aware as early as February of 2019 that the Ukrainian government was planning to reopen the Burisma investigation,” he claimed. “This is long before the president ever imagined having a call with President Zelensky,” he added, noting Petro Poroshenko was still Ukraine’s president at that time.
This is an absolutely brutal revelation. The entire impeachment inquiry hinges on Trump abusing his presidency to “pressure” Ukrainian leaders to investigate his political opponent. Not only is any evidence of that absent from the call transcript, it turns out that absolutely no pressure was necessary. The Ukrainians were ALREADY engaged in this investigation. This would be like Boris Johnson “pressuring” Attorney General William Barr into investigating the origins of the 2016 Trump/Russia hoax. It’s already in progress, dude.
Enjoy the ocean floor, Democrats. It’s still a shallower home than you deserve.
