Rep. Devin Nunes (R-CA) said in his opening statement at the House Intelligence Committee impeachment hearing on Thursday that it is not President Donald Trump who got “caught” taking part in nefarious behavior and listed the seven times this was the case.
“The Democrats have tried to solve this dilemma with a simple slogan: ‘He got caught!’” Nunes said. “President Trump, we are to believe, was just about to do something wrong, and getting caught was the only reason he backed down from whatever nefarious thought-crime the Democrats are accusing him of almost committing.”
“I once again urge Americans to consider the credibility of the Democrats on this committee who are now hurling these charges,” Nunes said. “For the last three years, it’s not President Trump who got caught, it’s the Democrats who got caught.”
- They got caught falsely claiming they had more than circumstantial evidence that Trump colluded with the Russians to hack the 2016 elections.
- They got caught orchestrating this entire farce with the Whistleblower and lying about their secret meetings with him.
- They got caught defending the false allegations of the Steele dossier, which was paid for by the Democrats.
- They got caught breaking their promise that impeachment would only go forward with bipartisan support because of how damaging it is to the American people.
- They got caught running a sham impeachment process featuring secret depositions, hidden transcripts, and an unending flood of Democrat leaks.
- They got caught trying to obtain nude photos of President Trump from Russian pranksters pretending to be Ukrainians.
- And they got caught covering up for Alexandra Chalupa—a Democratic National Committee operative who colluded with Ukrainian officials to smear the Trump campaign—by improperly redacting her name from deposition transcripts and refusing to let Americans hear her testimony as a witness in these proceedings.
Nunes noted that this is the last schedule hearing of the “Impeachment Committee” and called for a change in priorities in Congress.
“I sincerely hope the Democrats end this affair as quickly as possible so our nation can begin to heal the many wounds it has inflicted on us,” Nunes said. “The people’s faith in government, and their belief that their vote counts for something, has been shaken.”
There are quite a few Democrats who should resign and leave the Country for getting exposed as the leaders of a Coup against Trump by the Dirty Democrat Party
That’s all you got?? Dude, Trump tried to hold aid to Ukraine in exchange for info on Biden to benefit his own campaign!!
Nixon and Clinton ruined their own careers for less!
Rep. Devin Nunes is a pathetically transparent Trump tool. Dr. Fiona Hill is the adult in the room, laying out the clearly articulated, non-political truth.
Yeah, Comrade Greggie; that’s why Fiona Hill hung around with Christopher Steele.
@Ujjvala Rahn: Dude, Biden extorted Ukraine to kill an investigation that would involve his son. Dude, under Trump, Ukraine got more and better aid than they ever did under Obama. Dude, the Democrats have been lying every along every step of this phony circus.
It simply says so much about Democrats that they are more than willing to bury Biden’s extortion and the DNC working with Russians and Ukrainians to gather foreign support for Hillary on the hope of grasping more power.
Dr. Hill testified that she had interacted with Christopher Steele on numerous occasions while he was still a member of British intelligence service. Steele retired from MI6 in 2009. She stated she had encountered him once in 2016.
You twist every fact to suit Trump’s needs. You’re nowhere near as good at it as Nunes, who isn’t having much success with it himself today. His efforts to spin Hill’s words aren’t working, because she not only has a high level of professional integrity, but is far smarter than he is. You can see the frustration on his face.
This is probably why Rep. Jim Jordan sounded like an angry chicken when his turn came. Basically, he’s a wrestling coach up against a vastly superior intellect, attempting to make her look like she’s the one who doesn’t know what she’s talking about. She knows far more about the situation than he does.
November 21, 2019 – Lev Parnas Helped Rep. Devin Nunes’ Investigations; The indicted Giuliani associate helped arrange meetings and calls in Europe for the Republican congressman in 2018.
This is almost as interesting as the revelation that federal prosecutors are going to interview Andrew Favorov, an executive at a Ukrainian state-owned energy company, concerning the possibility that Rudy Giuliani has a personal financial interest in damaging Burisma.
As interesting as this?
Burisma transfers millions of dollars to Hunter Biden, Devon Archer and the Kerry Family and then the investigation stops
Probably not to those like you; this is the kind of stuff you wish to ignore. However, to those interested in facts and truth, it is quite significant.
@Deplorable Me, #8:
I find the statement made by Andrew Favorov’s attorney regarding his client’s upcoming interview with U.S. federal investigators more interesting because it’s far more likely to be true.
@Greg: No doubt an interview will happen. Discovering your imaginary corruption, however… not likely. Meanwhile, REAL corruption is already revealed among your beloved Democrats and that they try desperately to cover their own corruption with false accusations of corruption of others.
No, your own party’s corruption is of no interest to you. Thinking about is is too painful and confusing.
Impeachment is failing and backfiring. Great plan.
@Deplorable Me: I hate for him to get his hopes so high only to be dashed again.
We know why they indicted the guys helping Rudy and Nunes with investigations.
The EU agreement forced the increase of NG to closer to EU prices, Barisima was raking it in, and seems spreading it around.
Mainly because you also believe the Earth is flat, also.
Meanwhile, in reality…
The Swamp fighting back against being drained…and still getting drained. Guess Soros will have to wait for another lifetime.
