Dem Star Impeachment Witness Vindman
Confirms Trump Did Nothing Wrong

Original Article

Posted By: earlybird, 10/30/2019 9:20:58 PM

The only news that matters coming out of Alexander Vindman’s Tuesday impeachment testimony is that he once again proved President Trump has done absolutely nothing impeachable, or even close to it. Vindman, who is obviously all wound up to overturn the 2016 election and have Trump removed from office, could only testify that the transcript of Trump’s now-famous July 25 phone call with Ukraine President Volodymyr Zelensky was missing a couple of details. Boy, that sounds ominous! Did Trump conceal the true nature of his phone call??? Did Zelensky also aid in the cover-up by repeatedly claiming he never felt pressured by Trump???? Bombshell time, amirite? Except, no.

Vindman disagreed with what the President of the United States’s policies were. No laws broken. Nothing impeachable. Just a difference of opinion by a minor player who wanted to be so much more… The first time I’ve ever seen someone look ridiculous in a U. S. military uniform. Rather Peter Sellers-ish, though Peter would have looked more authentic. Vindman just came off as a tinpot dictator from a small Middle European country...

If LTC Vindman still has access to and is working in the White House something is very wrong!

As a retired military I'd say LTC Vindman's chance for COL Vindman is slim and none. You play politics expect to pay the price if you pick the wrong party.

From the Article, the last sentence states the obvious, "Which means this impeachment is a total scam." We the people pretty much came to this conclusion long ago. We further concluded that the dims, the deep state, and the msm are a total evil corrupt fraud.

Oh, did they leave out an acknowledgement that someone coughed? Did someone use a period instead of a semi-colon? The scariest thing to come out of this article is that the mighty warrior has a twin brother. OMG, NO!!

I'm disgusted by this whole scenario and outraged at my fellow so-called American "friends" who are Democrats. Are you happy now? Almost 3 years to the day that Trump killed off your Great White Hope like the last episode from Game of Thrones and you're still whimpering over it and licking your wounds. Stop it! And grow up. This isn't funny or even mildly amusing anymore. Your megalomania over destroying Trump far exceeds the worst thoughts and actions against The One from any far right hate group. This isn't birther nonsense or "he's-a-Muslim" crapola. This impeachment attempt will hurt everyone's 401k and the overall economy and the standing of the USA in the world view. The Democrats are now true traitors to the Constitution and the American way of accepting defeat good-naturedly.

Have noted on Drudge (which I seldom click on anymore) and other sites the new meme is Republican Senators etc. who have doubts about Trump, e.g. Tim Scott of S. C. and others)...this seems to be the new drumbeat. What is noticeably absent in all of this is that, first of all, we know only what Schiff decides to leak to the Press, and now even decides to take up let alone let the questionee answer. Second, the question of a President's lawful prerogatives is never gone into, what is legitimate for a President and what is not. IF the funds were held up with the Ukrainian's knowledge, is that still legitimate? IF??????? WE have no way of knowing, This all looks like a Starr Chamber or Russian Court hearing and yet the Dems have sent out their less sleazy (Jim Himes, Ct. for example) to posit how fair the proceedings are, and how they follow precedent. Read Kimberley Strassel's book, "Resistence" and it makes clear how generally uninformed and lazy, plus DEMOCRATIC, 95% of the Press Corp is and how we get very little of the actual story on anything, no questions asked in response to the story line. That is, in a very major way, what is going on here, and while Brian Kilmeade on Fox questioned Himes this a.m. I will bet he did a Susan Rice on all the Nets etc. and his word was taken as truth.

Who does the hiring in the White House? Seems to me this guy would stick out like a sore thumb. He just looks a little odd. Do they do performance reviews? If so, I would imagine talking to this guy would be very enlightening. He doesn’t come off as some who would be quiet about what he thinks. Sanctimonious blowhards never are. I am just so disappointed with what goes on in this White House. For three years we know that the President is under attack by anyone who can get close to him. Why would you not want to protect him from this sort of thing? Why give any democrat access to the White House. It makes no sense to me especially not in this atmosphere.

This is why the dems are trying to do things in secret. When things are really exposed, you find the dems have ... absolutely nothing. The things their "witlesses" are saying are petty and stupid. Nothing the dems have is going to build a "legal" case for impeachment. In the end, unfortunately, they can vote for impeachment anyway. They are trying to build a PR case for impeachment, something the media is only too happy to help with. Yet, they are still coming off as incompetent. Again. I suspect that each time the dems make a run at Trump and fall on their faces in defeat, Trump gains a few election poll percents as voters get fed up with the stupid games. We will see.

When does the Democrat Party reimburse we the people for tying the hands of the President while he is negotiating with China on a deal that could make or break our economy? Oh, and for holding up the Canadian part of the USMCA by colluding with the PM of Canada to thwart it? Given the absurd nature of the (latest) charges against the President, it is difficult to avoid the conclusion that the Democrats are deeply afraid of what is coming out about Obama's attempted 2016 coup, and have also concluded they have no chance of achieving an honest electoral victory in 2020. For once, I agree with them.

The Los Angeles County coroner's office confirmed Bean's Friday night death, saying it was being investigated as a “traffic-related” fatality.

The U.S. Treasury Department has started turning over confidential banking records related to Hunter Biden in response to requests from Senate investigative committees. Senate Finance Committee Chairman Chuck Grassley and Senate Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs Committee Chairman Ron Johnson asked the treasury in November for "suspicious activity reports," banking alerts involving money laundering or fraud, related to Biden and his associates. A spokeswoman for Sen. Ron Wyden, the ranking Democrat on the Senate Finance Committee, told Yahoo News that the department has already started turning over records. The Wyden spokeswoman criticized the Treasury Department for "rapidly complying" with the requests, calling the Republican-led Senate investigation of Biden a "sideshow.”

This isn’t the first time he’s behaved like a bitter sanctimonious weasel when it comes to Donald Trump.
