Schiff Caught in Criminal Lies

Nov. 20, 2019 (EIRNS)—Among several devastating exposures of lies and overt criminal acts against the state revealed over the past days, the questioning of the U.S. Ambassador to the European Union Gordon Sondland today by Rep. Mike Turner (R-OH) turned the tables on the despicable Adam Schiff’s actual intent, and actual criminal acts, in running this coup attempt under the guise of an impeachment inquiry.

According to Representative Turner, House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff (D-CA) told the press during a break that Sondland had dropped the bombshell, that indeed there was a quid pro quo, and that Trump was now sure to be impeached. Turner said this was already in the headlines on CNN.

Turner then cornered Sondland into admitting, clearly, that he had believed there was a quid pro quo for Trump to hold a meeting in the White House only if President Volodymyr Zelensky agreed to investigate Burisma and the Ukrainian intervention in the 2016 election (which, of course, is not even improper, let alone a bribe), but that Sondland had only “presumed” that it was also a quid pro quo that there would be no military aid unless Zelensky took those steps. Earlier, under questioning from Rep. Jim Jordan (R-OH), Sondland acknowledged that when he asked President Trump directly, “What do you want from Ukraine?” the President answered: “I Want Nothing. I want no quid pro quo. I want Zelensky to do the right thing. I want him to do what he ran on” (i.e., fighting corruption—Jordan could have, but did not, added that Zelensky campaigned for ending the war by meeting with Putin).

Turner then provided Sondland with a civics lesson—that “hearsay evidence,” which was almost entirely what has been heard in these hearings, would not be allowed in a real court of law, or in a Senate trial of an impeached president. But “presumption,” i.e., a fact made up out of thin air, was simply a lie—and yet, Turner said, that is what Schiffis out there telling the press is a slam dunk for impeachment.

The facts of the sham are coming out. Now we must get the underlying story out as well—these Democrats colluded with the Obama intelligence team and British intelligence to impose a Nazi regime on Ukraine with the intention of starting a war with Russia, which they are now frantically trying to cover up.
