Today’s paragraphs come to us from Fox News legal analyst/commentator and best-selling author Gregg Jarrett. They concern adam schiff’s grotesque record of dishonesty throughout the impeachment farce:
The clown show known as an “impeachment inquiry” is getting more comical and hapless by the day.
At first, Schiff wanted the faux “whistleblower” who triggered the impeachment farce to testify. Then, suddenly, he didn’t. What changed? In the interim, evidence emerged that Schiff and/or his staff colluded with the “whistleblower” before the complaint was ever filed and then lied about it, earning Schiff “Four Pinocchios” from The Washington Post.
The chairman now wants to conceal his own role in engineering the pretext for impeachment and his subsequent deceit. This is why he has insisted that the “whistleblower” remain anonymous, despite no such right, guarantee, privilege, or entitlement written in the law, as I explained in an earlier column. Even though the undercover informant (reportedly working for the CIA) does not qualify for whistleblower status under the law as determined by the Department of Justice, any effort by Republicans to call him as a witness will be blocked by Schiff.
But Schiff’s machinations are more malevolent than masking the key witness. Those he will call to testify are already on record dishing up prodigious plates of multiple hearsay and rank speculation. It is obvious from the released transcripts of the heretofore “super top-secret” inquisition that none of them have any firsthand knowledge of a “quid pro quo” allegedly demanded by President Trump.
How absurd has this become? How weak is this impeachment coup-attempt?
Let’s just say that when the chair of the House Judiciary Committee (Jerrold Nadler) – the committee that is supposed to be conducting this inquiry – is so repulsive that you need to move it elsewhere…
…and the committee you move it to – the one you are establishing as your preferred venue – is chaired by adam schiff, an obnoxious congenital liar of the first order…
…this has all the earmarks of a PR disaster in the making.
My guess is that, even a great many of the usually Democrat-complicit mainstream media will not be able to run cover for this farce (though the 100%-compromised MSNBC and CNN will try their best).
In the classic film, All About Eve, Bette Davis famously said “Fasten your seatbelts, it’s going to be a bumpy night”.
Well, between the lack of any actual evidence that an impeachable crime has been committed, and the fact that the so-called “witnesses” are going to be out there in public being forced by Republicans (schiff can’t prevent this) to admit they have no first-hand knowledge that President Trump did a thing he is accused of, I suggest that Democrats heed that warning. It’s going to be a bumpy inquiry.
I award Gregg Jarrett Paragraphs Of The Day honors for giving us a heads-up on just how farcical this is going to be. (And, yes, I could have given Michael Goodwin and Victor Davis Hanson Paragraphs Of The Day honors as well).
