After Fiona Hill’s testimony wrapped up two weeks of hearings, Devin Nunes, the top Republican on the House Intelligence Committee, expressed his hope that “today’s hearing marks the merciful end of this spectacle in the impeachment committee.”
Well, that will be more possible, as rumor has it that Nunes is off to a ritzy California treatment center for “Delusional Disorder.” Nunes will be treated with Risperdal, an anti-psychotic, for his persistent beliefs in unreality, particularly his belief that the Ukrainians were responsible for influencing the 2016 election.
Jim Jordan, another stand- up guy, and an accomplice in this madness, has been dogged by allegations that while he was the assistant coach of the men’s wrestling team at the University of Michigan, he was aware of sexually inappropriate behavior of the medical doctor and said nothing. No wonder The Republicans and The Don want him as one of their top dogs. Rumor has it that Jordan is already spending hours reviewing the Kavanaugh hearings with an acting coach- so he is ready.
But what a week it was.
Gordon, I paid for my ambassadorship” Sondland, left no doubt that The Don engaged in a quid pro quo with Ukrainian president Zelensky. He stated that his actions were dictated by The Don and that the two Mikes, Pence and Pompeo were in on it. If we bring in Mick Mulvaney (whose middle name is Michael) in to the mix, we have another threesome to match the original “Three Amigos.” We can call them: “Don’t be like Mikes.”
Sondland also verified the phone call from a Kyiv restaurant in which the president asked about the investigation in to the Bidens. The Don was so loud that practically everyone in the restaurant heard him.
Just imagine the scene.
An ambassador of the U.S. calling the president of the U.S. on his cell phone in the middle of a restaurant in Kyiv. Don’t you think you might do that kind of thing in private on a secured phone? Wouldn’t you think Russia has infiltrated your phone and hears everything? And in this case, Russia wouldn’t even need to be tracking your phone because the guy at the next table is a Russian operative. He would be texting:
“Sondland is a clown. He’s talking to Trump. Tell Putin that I can hear everything Trump is saying-he is such a loud boar-LOL. Can you believe how stupid these people are? How did America ever become so powerful? Tell Putin Trump is keeping up the pressure to get Zelensky to do the investigation about Ukraine’s interference in the election.”
Absurdity 2. The waiter serving Sondland’s group heard The Don as well. He tells the other waiters, who tell the cooks, who tell their families and friends and before you know it the majority of the Ukrainian people know about the shakedown and the denial of military aid.
Absurdity 3. Everything The Don said to Sondland during the infamous phone call was dictated by Putin through the microscopic earpiece implanted in the Don’s ear while they were meeting alone in Helsinki. It is rumored that Putin tried to get The Don to stop screaming in to the phone and said: “Donald, please use your inside voice.”
The Don responded to the nonsense of the loudness of the phone call by tweeting this:
“I have been watching people making phone calls my entire life. My hearing is, and has been, great. Never have I been watching a person making a call, which was not on speakerphone, and been able to hear or understand a conversation. I’ve even tried, but to no avail. Try it live!” (And anyway it was impossible, Putin told me to use my inside voice. Oops, I mean Pence or Pompeo. Really, they told me to use it, for real.)
Fiona Hill’s testimony in the Impeachment hearings put the icing on the cake. She referred to Rudy G’s shadow foreign policy in Ukraine as a “political domestic errand.” Translated: While real diplomats were involved in national security issues and foreign policy, The Don and his minion were like contestants in the “Great Bake Off,” whipping up their own unsavory recipes.
Then Hill went for the jugular;
“Based on questions and statements I have heard, some of you on the committee appear to believe that Russia and its security services did not conduct a campaign against our country — and that perhaps, somehow, for some reason, Ukraine did. This is a fictional narrative that has been perpetrated and propagated by the Russian security services themselves.”
Hill went on to plead with Republicans not to promulgate the false narrative of Ukrainian interference in the 2016 election.
“Our nation is being torn apart. Truth is questioned. Our highly professional and expert career foreign service is being undermined. Russia aims at nothing less than destroying Americans’ faith in their democracy.”
After Hill’s impassioned words, Nunes, who has now been accused of meeting with Ukrainian officials (he denies this), looked Hill right in the eye and spoke of Ukrainian interference.
Too bad Hill didn’t go one step further and challenge Nunes:
So Mr. Nunes, given your response to what I’ve said, that pushing the theory that Ukraine tampered with the U.S. election, is supporting a Russian disinformation campaign to exonerate Russia from what 19 U.S, intelligence Agencies and a bi-partisan Senate committee determined with 100 percent certainty, the only conclusion I can come to, is that you and your Republican colleagues (Yes, that means you Lindsey Graham) are colluding with Russia against the best interests of the United States and should be investigated for treason!
Putin who was watching the hearings at an economic forum in Moscow gloated and had this to say: “Thank God nobody is accusing us anymore of interfering in the U.S. elections,” “Now they’re accusing Ukraine.”
When all is said and done and all the facts revealed, The Don will be exposed as a Russian asset.
