    Schiff is toast. Good.

    BREAKING: In a secret interview, Democrat Rep. Adam Schiff pressured former U.S. special representative to Ukraine Kurt Volker to testify that Ukrainian officials felt pressured by Trump to investigate former Vice President Joe Biden and his son, Hunter .

    This relates to Kurt Volker’s testimony, which turned out to be a major dud for Schiff and his gang. While Volker, being a former John McCain staffer, was expected to come in and fillet Trump.

    It was reported that Schiff got so frustrated with how things were going that he sidelined his MSNBC lawyer to question Volker himself. Now, we know why he did that and we’ve got the transcript to illustrate what happened.


    Here’s the rest of the exchange in question, where you can see Schiff continuing to press him to say something he clearly doesn’t think is actually true.

    [Schiff] asked Volker whether he would agree that “no President of the United States should ever ask a foreign leader to help intervene in a U.S. election.”

    “I agree with that,” said Volker.

    “And that would be particularly egregious if it was done in the context of withholding foreign assistance?” Schiff continued.

    Volker balked. “We’re getting now into, you know, a conflation of these things that I didn’t think was actually there.”

    Schiff wanted Volker to agree that “if it’s inappropriate for a president to seek foreign help in a U.S. election, it would be doubly so if a president was doing that at a time when the United States was withholding military support from the country.”

    Again, Volker did not agree. “I can’t really speak to that,” he said. “My understanding of the security assistance issue is — ”

    Schiff interrupted. “Why can’t you speak to that, ambassador? You’re a career diplomat. You can understand the enormous leverage that a president would have while withholding military support from an ally at war with Russia. You can understand just how significant that would be, correct?”

    Volker tried to go along without actually agreeing. “I can understand that that would be significant,” he said.

    Schiff persisted. “And when that suspension of aid became known to that country, to Ukraine, it would be all the more weighty to consider what the president had asked of them, wouldn’t it?”

    “So again, congressman, I don’t believe — ” Volker began.

    “It’s a pretty straightforward question,” Schiff said.

    “But I don’t believe the Ukrainians were aware that the assistance was being held up — ”

    “They became aware of it,” Schiff said.

    “They became aware later, but I don’t believe they were aware at the time, so there was no leverage implied,” Volker said.

    Schiff is a blithering idiot.

    I love how the Democrats have made him their point man on this impeachment charade.

    Translation: The witness was dodging the question and dissembling, so Schiff tried to get him to honestly address the question.

    You’re being thoroughly ridiculous. Attempting to keep a witness from dodging the question is the polar opposite of making things up.

    He never has, never will. It is amazing to me that the owner lets this cretin continue to crap on every thread.

    I know he lives off of clicks, but have some standards.

    Your trolling was exposed.........again.

    Easy to do since that is all you do.

    I have no idea why the people running this board allow you to crap on every thread you enter. Clicks can't be that important to them.

    Shameless.

    You’re not only reduced to whining, you’re reduced to repetitive whining.

    You actually think you said something...What does any of your crap have to do with Schiff trying to get Volk to say what Schiff wanted.
