Posted on 11/19/2019 10:33:21 PM PST by TigersEye
Republican Texas Rep. John Ratcliffe said during Tuesdays impeachment hearing that the use of the accusation of bribery has only recently been leveled against President Donald Trump.
Ratcliffe said it was House Speaker Nancy Pelosi who started to refer to the presidents alleged bribery because it was more comprehensible to Americans than quid pro quo.
Ratcliffe noted that the word bribery does appear once in the testimony but not in relation to Trump. In fact, in these 3,500 pages of sworn testimony in just these ten transcripts released thus far, the word bribery appears in these 3,500 pages exactly one time. Ironically is it appears in a description of not President Trumps alleged conduct, it appears in a description of [former] Vice President Bidens alleged conduct
I am not aware of anything that hasn’t backfired.
Maybe they will bring out the Golden Witness with the Hammer of Thor evidence tomorrow!? :)
This horse went lame when DJT released the first transcript and has been spiraling down ever since. The old Adam and Nasty show has caught a STD. Theyll be on penicillin for a while. If stupidity was an art form, these two Picassos would be painting something some where. Instead of hanging around creating this crap fest.
They had better get over it fast because they need to nail DJT’s hide to the wall before the IG report comes out.
Should be a piece of cake for them. lol
So boring, no one is even watching this idiotic Schiff show...
Their out on this whole Schiff show will be “the witness does not wish to present himself (for any number of obvious resons) and the midway carni act will be over...
“Reasons” ...stupid smawt phone...
They’re in a dilemma. Once the show stops, Ciaramella &Co. are fair game.
What’s the next charge going to be.
Okay, witness number 8! Witness number 8? Witness number 8!
Okay lets move on, witness number 9! Witness number 9? Witness number 9!
Okay, witness number 10! Witness number 10? Witness number 10!
Well, that's it for today...
After yesterday, with all the talk that not a single witless has yet uttered the word bribery to describe Trumps actions, how long will it take for Schiffy to trot out one who uses it 12 times in a sentence or two, as every principal part of speech?
Itll be both laughable and maddening, because the media indignation will be deafening, despite the transparency of this attempt to mis-characterize.
There is no STEP FIVE.
Schiff wants to attend the next Whistle Blowers Anonymous meeting but they won’t tell him where it is held.
Every dollar given to foreign governments can be considered a bribe because we can withhold the money if they don’t comply with our needs or wishes. It’s done all the time!
Every donation to a politician’s election fund is a bribe.
No one gives them money without an expectation of them.
Especially true of lobbyists.
Maybe that’s why they’re back to “quid pro quo” today.
