Democrats have changed the theme of their impeachment from “quid pro quo” to “bribery,” but there is a major problem.
In a shock to Nancy Pelosi, Adam Schiff, and the entire House Democrat impeachment plot, Ukraine’s foreign minister just admitted that U.S. aid was never connected to the Biden investigation. Ukraine Foreign Minister Vadym Prystaiko stated, “Ambassador Sondland did not tell us, and certainly did not tell me, about a connection between the assistance and the investigations.”
“You should ask him…I have never seen a direct relationship between investigations and security assistance,” Prystaiko said.
The truth finally comes out
The foreign minister acknowledged that investigations were mentioned, as we all know. However, he also stated that those conversations were more or less done in passing between Trump and Zelensky.
They were not “official” conversations, and there was never any pressure put on Zelensky or anyone in the Ukraine government by anyone in the Trump administration to push those investigations forward.
It all begs the question of whether a newly-elected president who ran on a campaign of anti-corruption would be willing to begin his administration by engaging in an act of corruption with Trump.
Would he be willing to put everything he has worked for at risk simply to appease Trump? Zelensky has a solid reputation so far, so it is hard to imagine him jeopardizing everything so recklessly.
The Democrat narrative
Of course, Democrats want Americans to believe something completely different.
Right now, there are two telephone transcripts, a statement from President Zelensky, and a statement from a high-ranking official in the Ukrainian government all saying that the things Democrats allege never in fact happened.
Under normal circumstances, this would have been sufficient evidence to put accusations to rest and conclude any pending investigation.
Instead, Pelosi and the Democrats are moving forward using hearsay and fabricating evidence when witnesses do not tell the story they want to hear.
This is all an effort to reverse the results of the 2016 election, and if it has the ancillary effect of protecting Joe Biden, all the better in the eyes of the left.
