Much has been said about the possibility of getting Bolton to testify. I look at it this way. If he testifies and says nothing bad about the president, it would add to the embarrassment of the dummycrats. If he does say something bad about the president, it is still highly unlikely that he’ll be removed from office. Worst case, he was doing something presidents do and should do. He is the chief law enforcement officer of the nation. After all, didn’t Obama have Trump investigated? Didn’t Clinton use her position to smear candidate Trump? Didn’t the FBI director clear her of all wrong.
Moreover, and most important, didn’t Biden admit guilt before the whole world on a video? Did he not have the prosecutor of Ukraine fired in six hours? Does such a thing deserve no investigation?
Bottom line, whether Bolton testifies or not, there will likely be little or no difference. I once read some very wise words that I believe apply. If it doesn’t matter, then it doesn’t matter.
As a side note, if they go into calling witnesses, there are two things that will be true.
- nothing will be passed by the Senate until the trial is over, possibly Till may or June. (I doubt it will go longer. After all, 1/3 of of the senators do face reelection.)
- those senators are going to get awfully tired of just sitting there twiddling there thumbs (or whatever they use to fight off the boredom) while they listen to the dummycrats spin their lies.
Schiff said he does not know who the whistle-blower is. Considering that he has told no less than at least three whoppers, why should we believe it. Even if he doesn’t know, someone on his staff knows. As far as I am concerned, it is the same thing.
As a storyteller, I tell stories all the time. The difference is that I admit it. To some degree, I even advertise it. If you read any of my books you will will realize it, especially those in the Ring or Floater series. Schiff enjoys telling lies as much as me. The difference is that he expects us to believe him.
Fat chance of that.
Considering all of the number of dummycrats in The House, you would think they could find one honest one to lead the impeachment investigation. Well, then again, maybe that is expecting too much. It does seem that knowing how to lie is a requirement for them.
At least, they should find someone with a a little intelligence. I mean, Schiff really made an idiot out of himself when he tried to lie about what President Trump said in the phone call. I would say he just outright lied, but that is not true. It wasn’t even a successful lie. It was proven to be a lie almost before he finished it.
It just goes to show. You cannot trust the dummycrats to do anything. They aren’t even good at being dishonest.
By the way, this another proof positive that can’t count on someone with a college degree to be smart or honest. It is also proof positive that you can’t believe anything a dummycrat says.
Short of murder or assault, one of the worst things one man can do to another is to put words in his mouth. In a way, it is worse than physical assault. While a man may recover from wounds, he might not ever recover from an assault on his reputation.
When Adam Schiff made up the words to the phone conversation, he was not just lying. He was putting words in the mouth of President Trump. At this point, if I were President Trump, I would not give the man the time of day until he issued a written apology, maybe not then. I would want to make sure he meant it.
In the meantime, the man does not deserve to hold any kind of hearings. How can anyone trust anything the man, or his cohorts say or write.
Moreover, the foreign service is put totally in the hands of the president. The framers of The Constitution wisely decided that such things should not be done by “committee.” Committee are too slow and indecisive. Moreover, keeping a secret is much more difficult when hundred or so know it. I don’t know how many are on the Intelligence Committee, but there are at least three or four aides for each representative. We are likely talking about more than a hundred people.
Therefore, any requirement by the congress to turn over any foreign correspondence is not only a bad idea; it is not constitutional. Moreover, any spying by the CIA on the president is illegal. Therefore, the only one doing anything illegal here is the so-called whistle-blower.
Finally, if the president cannot have a private conversation with other heads-of-state, he has been horribly hampered. It is like a boxer who has but one arm. Henceforth, those who talk to our president, even after President Trump leaves office, will have suspicions that the whole world might very well hear what was said. Most assuredly, it will change what is said.
