FoxNews.com reports that
Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Lindsey Graham, R-S.C., vowed to expose the anonymous whistleblowers against President Trump if Democrats move forward with impeachment; at the same time, he warned against Trump having China pursue an investigation of Joe Biden.
A second unidentified whistleblower was confirmed Sunday morning, reportedly with firsthand information to support some of the allegations another whistleblower made in a complaint filed in August regarding a July 25 phone call between Trump and Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky. Graham said that if Democrats follow through on their desire to impeach Trump, he will make sure that the whistleblowers will have to come forward and testify.
“Here’s what’s going to happen: if the whistleblowers’ allegations are turned into an impeachment article it’s imperative that the whistleblower be interviewed in public, under oath, and cross-examined,” Graham told Fox News’ “Sunday Morning Futures,” promising that “if that doesn’t happen in the House, I’ll make sure it happens in the Senate.”
Graham pointed to the need for Trump to be able to confront his accusers, saying, “There can be no valid impeachment process unless the president can confront the witnesses against him.”
The complaint accused Trump of using military aid as leverage to pressure Ukraine into investigating Hunter Biden’s business dealings with Ukrainian energy company Burisma Holdings, and former Vice President Joe Biden’s efforts to have Ukraine fire the prosecutor who was investigating the firm.
“I think it’s ridiculous to say the president did something wrong based on the phone call,” Graham said, adding that Trump did not suggest any quid pro quo tying the military aid to the Biden investigation, which was being spearheaded by Trump’s personal attorney Rudy Giuliani.
Giuliani, meanwhile, has been vocal about alleged wrongdoing on the part of the Bidens in both Ukraine and China. The former New York City mayor claims that Hunter Biden received money from both Ukraine and China as part of a “pay for play” scheme to curry favor with the then-vice president. Trump has suggested that China should investigate Biden for the alleged corruption. Graham, however, advised against such a thing.
“I think that’s a bad idea,” Graham told host Maria Bartiromo. “I don’t trust anything coming out of China against Biden, Trump, me or you.”
That does not mean he thinks the Bidens should get a pass.
“Somebody needs to look at the Bidens, whether or not they violated the law,” he said. “They sure as hell looked at the Trumps. Somebody needs to look at the Bidens.”
Preach, Lindsey, preach.
Senator Graham just nailed the reason why the Speaker of the House, Nancy Pelosi has not called for a formal Impeachment Inquiry or for a vote to begin the Impeachment Process.
In either case, it would formalize proceedings, allowing the republicans to ask questions of the Democrats’ witnesses and to call their own.
And, if both these “whistleblowers” are nothing but disgruntled CIA Agents, i.e., Deep State Operatives loyal to John Brennan and the previous Administration, that would be revealed on the floor of the House for the entire world to see.
By the way, does this sudden discovery of “multiple anonymous witnesses” give you a feeling of deja vu, boys and girls?
It’s the same sort of strategy which the Democrats used to attack Judge Kavanaugh with in order to try to keep him from becoming a Supreme Court Associate Justice.
Just as the Dems were saying that Americans MUST believe Blasey Ford and the anonymous “corroborating witnesses” who were attempting to pile on Judge Kavanaugh because “they were so BRAVE” to come forth, so are they vouching for the veracity of these anonymous whistleblowers who, as this “strategy” plays out again, will turn out to not know a cotton-pickin’ thing.
The Democrats seem to only know one strategy, which is to take out anyone who dares to foil their plans to turn America into a Third World Socialist “Paradise”, through the use of lies, falsehoods, and intimidation.
Then they have the nerve to act incredulous when their target fights back, as President Trump is doing.
I say, more power to him.
The economy is growing. Americans are working. Minority Unemployment is experiencing record lows.
America is back, Baby!!!
And, the Democrats can’t stand it.
That is why they are trying to remove him from office.
He, like the Americans who were represented by a sea of red on the 2016 Electoral Map, believes in the America of our Fathers.
The Democrats do not.
They wish to install a system of government which will control each and every one of us, all the days of our lives.
The Impeachment of President Trump is meant to be an object lesson to all of us average Americans between the coasts, whom the Democrats identify as “Deplorables”.
Just as they underestimated average Americans in 2016, so are they underestimating us now.
Like the Whigs, the Democrats are sentencing themselves to become just another footnote in history.
Until He Comes,
