While Adam Schiff is grasping at straws for a way to remove Trump from office, talk radio star Rush Limbaugh broke the news to the Democrats that Donald Trump has already destroyed this impeachment.
Limbaugh pointed to the moment Trump released the phone call transcript as the defining moment, something Democrats never expected to happen.
That “uh-oh” moment
Most Democrats more than likely expected Trump to never reveal the transcript of his controversial phone call. Traditionally, in such situations, a president would invoke executive privilege, but Trump has taken the opposite tack.
In fact, Trump just released another transcript yesterday of the first phone call he had with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky, right before the hearing started.
Dems must have figured that since Trump has been so uncooperative with them thus far, there was simply no way he would put this information out there.
“They rolled the dice that Trump would not reveal the transcript of the phone call in order to protect executive privilege, to continue to wage battle between Congress and the executive branch and the separation of powers,” Limbaugh stated.
“And they really believed that Trump and his advisers would go to the wall not releasing the transcript,” he went on. “When the president released the transcript, it immediately rendered the whistleblower irrelevant.”
Why is this still going on?
“The whistleblower himself only knew secondhand what was said on the phone call … Plan A was the whistleblower, with instant credibility, was to be the Christine Blasey Ford of this story. Except nobody was gonna get access to him. He was never going to testify because his life was threatened, remember?” Limbaugh declared.
“Trump releases the transcript of his ‘perfect’ phone call with the president of Ukraine, and we find out that there’s nothing in it that is impeachable,” Limbaugh added. “There’s nothing in it that is criminal. It’s literally a nothingburger.”
The entire case for Democrats rests on the allegation of Trump requesting quid quo pro (which they are now trying to say is bribery) from Ukraine. The trade was supposedly a White House visit and military aid for an investigation into Joe Biden.
Not only did Ukraine receive both without having to launch an investigation, but Ukraine’s president and a top foreign minister have both gone on record as saying there was never any pressure put on Ukraine by Trump or any member of his administration.
So why has Nancy Pelosi allowed this charade to continue?
