Democrats to Begin Televised Impeachment Hearings Next Week
In their zeal to impeach President Trump for alleged crimes in his dealings with the Ukraine, Democrats have announced they are set to call their first witnesses in the televised impeachment hearings next week. In a statement, Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi said, “Today, Chairman Adam Schiff announced that on Wednesday, November 13, 2019, and Friday, November 15, 2019 the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence will hold its first open hearings as part of the impeachment inquiry into President Donald J. Trump.”

House ringleader Adam “Shifty” Schiff said that first up will be U.S. diplomat Bill Taylor who will testify that he believes President Trump held up aid to the Ukraine until the Biden’s shady dealings in the country were investigated. Following Taylor next week will be Deputy Assistant Secretary for European and Eurasian Affairs, George Kent, and Marie Yavanovich, the former U.S. ambassador to Ukraine.
For his part, President Trump does not seem all that worried about the continuation of the impeachment “witch hunt”. After the announcement Wednesday, the President tweeted out a quote from prosecutor Robert Wray who said that the Democrat’s case is “a weak case, at best”. He also thanked U.S. envoy to Ukraine, Kurt Volker who testified that there was no quid pro quo.
“Based on the things I’ve seen, the Democrats have no case, or a weak case, at best. I don’t think there are, or will be, well founded articles of Impeachment here.” Robert Wray, respected former prosecutor. It is a phony scam by the Do Nothing Dems! @foxandfriends— Donald J.

Thank you to Kurt Volker, U.S. Envoy to Ukraine, who said in his Congressional Testimony, just released, “You asked what conversations did I have about that quid pro quo, et cetra. NONE, because I didn’t know there was a quid pro quo.” Witch Hunt!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) November 6, 2019
