Democrat ‘Witness,’ Marie Yovanovitch, Contradicted Herself at Faux ‘Impeachment’ Hearing

Former Ambassador Marie Yovanovitch contradicted herself during her Friday testimony at the Democrat fake show impeachment trials.

Former Ambassador Marie Yovanovitch contradicted herself during her Friday testimony at the Democrat fake show impeachment trials and ultimately proved she had nothing pertinent to say about the charges the Democrats are throwing at President Donald Trump.

It looks like Yovanovitch lied when she said that the Obama administration never questioned the Hunter Biden and Ukrainian gas company Burisma situation but then later she said the Obama administration prepped her on that exact same issue.

This deep Democrat operative’s contradictory statements came during questioning by Rep. Elise Stefanik (R-NY):

Stefanik: The first time that you personally became aware of Burisma was actually when you were being prepared by the Obama State Department for your Senate confirmation hearings and this was in the form of practice questions and answers. This was your deposition. And you testified that in this particular practice Q&A with the Obama State Department, it wasn’t just generally about Burisma and corruption, it was specifically about Hunter Biden and Burisma. Is that correct?

Trending: MARK LEVIN: The Next Democrat President Must be Impeached

Yovanovitch::Yes, it is.

Stefanik::And the exact quote from your testimony is, “The way the question was phrased in this model Q&A was, ‘what can you tell us about Hunter Biden being named to the board of Burisma?’” So for the millions of Americans watching, President Obama’s own State Department was so concerned about potential conflicts of interest from Hunter Biden’s role at Burisma that they raised it themselves while prepping this wonderful ambassador nominee before her confirmation and yet our Democratic colleagues and the Chairman of this committee cry foul when we dare ask that same question that the Obama State Department was so concerned about.

That is not what she said earlier…

“And although I have met former Vice President Biden several times over the course of our many years in government service, neither he nor the previous administration ever raised the issue of either Burisma or Hunter Biden with me,” she said.

Later, Rep. John Ratcliffe (R-TX) later raised this question:

Ratcliffe: I’d like to ask you about your earlier testimony about your Senate confirmation and congresswoman Stefanik had asked you how the Obama-Biden State Department had prepared you to answer questions about Burisma and Hunter Biden specifically. You recall that?

Yovanovitch: Yes.

Ratcliffe:And she mentioned that you had been asked or been prepared for a question about Hunter Biden’s role on the board of Burisma but I don’t think that you gave us the answer or answers that the Obama-Biden State Department prepared you to give in response to that question. Do you remember what those answers were?

Yovanovitch:Yeah it was something along the lines of, “I would refer you to the vice president’s office on that.”

Ratcliffe:So did they in the course of that brief you about the amount of money that Hunter Biden was being paid by Burisma?

Yovanovitch: No, this wasn’t part of a briefing. I mean I had sort of big old books with questions that might come up.

Ratcliffe:In preparation for your confirmation and they thought that Hunter Biden’s role at Burisma might be significant enough that it would come up during your confirmation, is that correct?

Yovanovitch: Apparently so, I mean there were hundreds of questions.

Ratcliffe:Well, hundreds of questions, but were there hundreds of companies? how many companies other than Burisma did the Obama-Biden State Department prepare you to give answers for and if so, if there were others. which ones?

Yovanovitch:I just don’t recall.

Ratcliffe:You don’t recall that there were any other companies, is that correct?

Yovanovitch: I’m quite sure there probably were some companies, but I mean, you know, this is a while ago and I don’t recall.

Ratcliffe:But you specifically recall Burisma?

Yovanovitch:Yes.

Ratcliffe:All right, out of thousands of companies in the Ukraine the only one that you recall the Obama-Biden State Department preparing you to answer questions about was the one where the vice president’s son was on the board, is that fair?

Yovanovitch: Yes.

Rep. Stefanik did a great job on Friday:

Rep. Chris Stewart also revealed how meaningless Yavanocitch’s “testimony” was:

The facts show that Yovanovitch had absolutely no testimony that related to President Trump’s Ukraine call and it appears that her initial intention was to cover for the Bidens. Until the Republican Reps uncovered her lies.

MARK LEVIN: The Next Democrat President Must be Impeached

“I am of the opinion that the next Democrat president must be impeached. That’s the only way to stop this,” Mark Levin wrote last week.

Published

on

“I am of the opinion that the next Democrat president must be impeached. That’s the only way to stop this,” constitutional expert and talk show host Mark Levin wrote last week.

Levin goes on to lay out his excellent reasoning for impeaching a president who isn’t even known yet…

If the Republicans control the House, they must impeach the next Democrat President to ensure this sort of thing is never repeated.

The next Democrat President must be impeached? What are grounds? It doesn’t matter.

With Trump, they were talking impeachment when he was a candidate. They were talking impeachment the day he got elected. I told you, this is all sham. It’s a scam. It’s a ruse.

The only way to stop them is to turn the political and impeachment guns on them.

The next Democrat president must be impeached.

The Republican Congress can take a page from Nadler, from Waters, from Engel, from Schiff and all the rest.

They should issue scores and scores of subpoenas. Scores of subpoenas, for financial information, for bank records, for tax information; all kinds of communications with, around and about the president; issue subpoenas for the president’s White House Counsel, Chief of Staff, National Security Adviser, and other people who are closest to the president so he ceases to function.

You want to burden this Democrat president as much as possible. You want to undermine him as much as possible.

And you can wave around the Pelosi doctrine, the Schiff doctrine, the Nadler doctrine, and all the rest of them. Use their rules and take him down.

Do the Republicans have the guts to do so? I doubt it, but they must.

It is the only way to fix the Constitutional order when it comes to impeachment, because the Democrats are creating this precedent.

Now let them eat it.

Joe Biden would be the perfect Democrat president to be impeached.

Start subpoenaing all of his records; all of his phone calls with Ukraine, all of his phone calls with Red China.

You bring Hunter Biden in for 30 hours of secret testimony, like they brought Don Jr. in.

You create a special counsel, the way they created a special counsel against President Trump.

You demand Joe Biden testify in person and, when he refuses, you claim he has something to hide.

Imagine using their tools and their rhetoric against their guy. Or gal, it could be Elizabeth Warren, another liar. She’s another one with interesting finances. Well, we want to get to the bottom of it.

The next Democrat president must be impeached.

And Nancy Pelosi and Adam Schiff and Nadler and the others; CNN, the Washington Post, the New York Times, ABC and the others; they have all laid the foundation.

And the only way to stop this is to destroy their foundation with their guy or their lady.

He is right, as always.

Levin is host of a highly popular radio talk show as well as Internet entrepreneur and Fox News host. He can be found at marklevinshow.com.

Rep Al Green: Impeachment Must Address The Original Sin Of Slavery

You just can’t make this stuff up.

Al Green: Impeachment Must Address The Original Sin Of Slavery

On MSNBC’s “Weekends,” Rep. Al Green (D-TX) said the issues of slavery and racism needed to be addressed in the impeachment of President Donald Trump.

When asked about impeachment articles, Rep. Al Green said: “I believe that the American people understand that this is something that we must do at this point. I don’t speak for all of the American people. About a majority seem to think so. And I think that we’re moving forward in a very cautious and prudent way, which is what is expected. But I also think that if we don’t include some of the things that are important to people of color, then I think that our business won’t be finished. I do believe, ma’am, that we have to deal with the original sin. We have to deal with slavery. Slavery was the thing that put all of what President Trump has done lately into motion.”

Rep. Al Green continued: “The president has played on racism, and he’s used that as a weapon to galvanize a base of support, to mobilize people. We cannot overlook what happened when he came down the escalator and just demeaned people of color — when he talked about the s-hole countries. He has found a way to use ugly words to his benefit and to the detriment of the people who are the object of his words.”

Rep. Al Green added: “So I appreciate whatever we will do, but until we deal with the issue of invidious discrimination as it relates to LGBTQ community, the antisemitism, the racism, the Islamophobia, the transphobia, and also the misogyny that he has exemplified, I don’t think our work is done.”

Slavery has existed worldwide for millennia. It has been abolished from America for over 150 years. No one in America has lived under ‘slavery.’ President Donald Trump had nothing to do with it.

Democrats Say They’ll Impeach Trump All Over Again Even if He’s Re-Elected

Democrats are now saying that even if they impeach President Trump and the Senate does not remove him from office, they will impeach Trump all over again.

Published

Leading Democrats are now saying that even if they impeach President Donald Trump and the Senate does not remove him from office, they will impeach Trump all over again, even if he is re-elected.

You read that right. Democrats say they will impeach Trump all over again even if he wins re-election.

These same ignoramuses are crowing this week that there is legally no limit to the number of times the House of Representatives can impeach the same president (if the Senate does not vote to convict and remove him), so they are vowing to keep impeaching Trump until his second term is up, or until the U.S. Senate finally votes to remove him from office.

(As a reminder, the way impeachment works is that the House of Representatives votes to impeach, but the trial then moves to the U.S. Senate to convict and remove him. In both past impeachments — Andrew Johnson in 1868 and Bill Clinton in 1998 — the U.S. Senate failed to convict and remove.)

This really is obscene, but Democrats intend to spend the next five years impeaching Trump. Over. And. Over. Again.

Per the Daily Wire:

Rep. Al Green (D-TX), who has long pushed for impeaching the president, told C-SPAN that there was “no limit” to the number of times that Democrats could impeach the president.

“A president can be impeached more than once,” Green advised. “So, we can do this, we can move forward with what we have on the table currently, we can take this before the Senate and we can still investigate other issues and when the president has committed additional offenses, and my suspicion is that he will, we can take those before the Senate.”

“There is no limit on the number of times the Senate can vote to convict or not a president, no limit to the number of times the House can vote to impeach or not a president,” Green continued. “So, my belief is that the speaker will probably say we’re going to move forward with what we have now, but we’re not going to end investigations and that there may be possible opportunities to do other things at a later time.”

Green’s proclamation was echoed by Neal Katyal, an acting solicitor general under former Democrat President Barack Obama.

Katyal tweeted: “[Important] note on future: If the Senate doesn’t vote to convict Trump, or tries to monkey w his trial, he could of course be retried in the new Senate should he win re-election. Double jeopardy protections do not apply. And Senators voting on impeachment in the next months know this.”

What we have here is proof positive that radical, anti-American, leftist, Democrats are admitting that the will of the people and elections mean nothing to them.

What a surprise.

Poll: Half of Sanders and Warren Supporters Reject Free Speech

In a shocking new poll, half of supporters of Senators Warren and Sanders oppose the American right of free speech.

Published

In a shocking new poll, half of supporters of Senators Warren and Sanders oppose the American right of free speech.

One-quarter of upcoming voters say “offensive” speech should be banned in US, 24% said “not sure”

A new poll by The Heartland Institute and Rasmussen Reports finds voters are split on the issue of fundamental free speech.

When asked, “Should federal or state governments ban speech by individuals that a majority of Americans believes to be offensive, including speech considered to be racist or sexist,” 50% of voters said “no,” 27% said “yes,” and 24% were “not sure.”

It gets worse…

Further, 51% of those who say they have a “very favorable” view of Bernie Sanders said federal or state governments should “ban speech by individuals that a majority of Americans believes to be offensive, including speech considered to be racist or sexist.”

Even more disturbing, many of those who said certain kinds of “offensive” speech should be banned also said offenders should face harsh punishments. When asked if offenders should face jail time, 48% answered “yes,” 35% said “no,” and 17% answered “not sure.”

When asked if those who say offensive things should be barred from public office, 38% said “yes,” 44% said “no,” and 18% said “not sure.”

The poll has a margin of error of +/- 3 percentage points with a 95% level of confidence. See the full results of the poll below, including some of the key data from the crosstabs, which you can review in more detail at Rasmussen Reports.

Trump’s Approval Rating Soars to 52% Despite Democrat’s Hate-Filled Impeachment Drama

Despite the Democrat Party and the media’s avalanche of daily hate, President Donald Trump’s approval rating has jumped to 52 percent.

Published

on

The Democrat Party has been doing its level best to nullify the 2016 election, but it continues to look like their hate is bouncing right off Teflon Donald Trump. And now, his approval rating has jumped to 52 percent.

The media has been nearly 100 percent negative against President Donald Trump since before his inauguration, and the left’s impeachment drumbeat has been resounding since the first few minutes he took office (literally).

With all the hate heaped upon this president for every minute of his first term, one would think that everyone in the nation would hate the man.

Yet, Donald Trump’s approval rating has either held steady, or has gone up. And this week he has hit 52 percent.

Trump’s staying power is remarkable considering the deep state forces aligned against him.

The number comes from Rasmussen’s daily tracking poll reported on Thursday.

“The Rasmussen Reports daily Presidential Tracking Poll for Thursday shows that 52% of Likely U.S. Voters approve of President Trump’s job performance. Forty-seven percent (47%) disapprove,” the pollster reported on December 5.

Rasmussen adds, “The latest figures include 38% who Strongly Approve of the job Trump is doing and 40% who Strongly Disapprove.”

Amazingly, that puts Trump six points higher than Barack Obama at the same point in their presidencies.

On December 6, 2009, Barack Obama had only earned 46 percent approval.

Also, remember that the media was 100 percent positive in its “reporting” on Obama and almost never published a bad story about him.

The numbers are amazing.

Democrat Speaker Nancy Pelosi Asks for Articles of Impeachment

On Thursday morning, House Speaker Democrat Nancy Pelosi said the House Judiciary Committee will draft articles of impeachment against President Donald Trump.

Published

on

On Thursday morning, House Speaker Democrat Nancy Pelosi said the House Judiciary Committee will begin drafting articles of impeachment against President Donald Trump.

“The president’s actions have seriously violated the constitution,” Pelosi said on Capitol Hill. “Our Democracy is at stake. The president leaves us no choice but to act.”

White House Press Secretary Stephanie Grisham slammed the Democrats for the move saying they should be “ashamed” of themselves.

Grisham added, “Trump has done nothing but lead our country – resulting in a booming economy, more jobs & a stronger military, to name just a few of his major accomplishments.”

Pelosi claimed Trump’s July 25 telephone call with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky was an abuse of power that violated America’s national security.

“If we allow a president to be above the law, we do so surely at the peril of our republic. In America, no one is above the law,” Pelosi said.

“Today, I am asking our chairman to proceed with articles of impeachment,” she said referring to House Judiciary Committee Chairman Rep. Jerry Nadler (D-NY).

President Trump slammed House Democrats and their impeachment probe, urging them to vote quickly to remove him in order for the Senate to begin a “fair trial.”

“The Do Nothing Democrats had a historically bad day yesterday in the House. They have no Impeachment case and are demeaning our Country,” he tweeted. “But nothing matters to them, they have gone crazy. Therefore I say, if you are going to impeach me, do it now, fast, so we can have a fair trial in the Senate, and so that our Country can get back to business. We will have Schiff, the Bidens, Pelosi and many more testify, and will reveal, for the first time, how corrupt our system really is.”

Report: Dem. Impeachment Czar Schiff Gave Whistleblower’s Pal a High-Paying Job

With more Democrat corruption, Democrat impeachment czar Adam Schiff mysteriously gave a high-paying job to the whistleblower’s best buddy.

Published

on

More Democrat corruption has emerged with a report revealing that Democrat impeachment czar Adam Schiff mysteriously gave a high-paying job to the whistleblower’s best buddy.

Seriously, can these people be any more corrupt?

The Washington Examiner’s Kerry Picket found the amazing facts in a piece she published this week.

According to Pickett, Schiff hired whistleblower Eric Ciaramella’s close friend, NSC aide Sean Misko, only one day after the president’s Ukraine phone call that Democrats have illegitimately claimed was somehow a criminal act perpetrated by President Trump.

House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff hired a former National Security Council aide who worked with alleged Ukraine whistleblower Eric Ciaramella at the NSC during the Obama and Trump administrations the day after the phone call between President Trump and Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky.

It was previously reported by the Washington Examiner that public records indicated Sean Misko, 37, started work on Schiff’s committee in August as a professional staff member. A specific start date was not available until this week, when the latest congressional quarterly disbursements were released.

The new records show that Misko’s official hire date was July 26

Ciaramella is himself a crooked deep state operative working for Obama’s corrupt CIA who is part of the cabal looking to destroy a duly elected president.

Think about this: The so-called whistleblower’s close buddy was miraculously hired by Schiff just as Schiff was gearing up for his fake, secret impeachment tribunals, all based on the false information supplied by the whistleblower.

If this doesn’t stink to high heaven, what does?

But, it seems the whole crooked scheme is in jeopardy. The Democrats have insisted for months that they would vote to impeach the president by December. Now it looks like that hope is already waning.

Just how much failure will the Democrat’s voters accept?
