I firmly believe this impeachment hearing will not change the mind of anti-Trumpers nor will it change the minds of Trump’s base.
The people that will be reached in these hearings are those that are sitting on the line, waiting to see which whey they will go.
It is those individuals Rep. Devin Nunes (R-CA) was appealing to in his opening statement today.
Schiff has completely shifted the narrative of this impeachment to make Trump out to be some type of monster.
It now appears that Schiff is trying to say that Trump withheld the aid from Ukraine for political benefit while at the same time putting Ukraine’s citizens and soldiers lives at risk.
The first part we already knew about, but the second part, well that is a completely new move by Schiff.
During his opening statement, House Intelligence Chairman Adam Schiff (D-CA) said the president’s acts exploited Ukraine’s “vulnerability” all for political gain.
He further stated, “The matter is as simple and as terrible as that.
“Our answer to these questions will affect not only the future of this presidency but the future of the presidency itself, and what kind of conduct or misconduct the American people may come to expect from their commander in chief.”
He finally asked, “If this is not impeachable conduct, what is?”
Nunes Blasts Proceedings
After Schiff painted a picture of a monster in the White House, Rep. Nunes was finally able to respond.
He stated, “And yet now we’re supposed to take these people at face value when they trot out a new batch of allegations.
“Anyone familiar with the Democrats’ scorched earth war against President Trump will not be surprised to see all the signs that this is a carefully orchestrated media smear campaign.”
I would encourage every American to watch and pay attention to every word that is said during these hearings.
Democrats are going to work their questions in a very specific way to paint perception and conjecture as fact.
We are going to see conversations between individuals that happened discussing these events, but there is no real proof of any wrongdoing, only what they thought someone meant.
There is no sugarcoating the fact the next few days are going to be very, very bad for Trump.
The media will latch onto everything these people “think” and blast it out as a headline of fact.
DO NOT RELY on the media for this information but rather watch these hearings and make our own judgment.
