Here is Rep. Ratcliffe (R-TX) speaking to reporters on Friday.

Rep. Ratcliffe: No where else in the United States of America can you be both the fact witness and the lead prosecutor for an investigation in ANYTHING much less an investigation to remove the president from office. It’s entirely inappropriate and Chairman Schiff should be disqualified from running an investigation where his committee members or staff are fact witnesses about contact with the whistleblower and the whistleblower process.

TWITTER REMOVES VIRAL BIDEN MEME POSTED BY TRUMP

Twitter Removes Viral Biden Meme Posted by Trump

Nickelback-themed video showed Biden & son meeting with Ukraine gas exec.

  – OCTOBER 3, 2019

Twitter removed a viral meme posted by President Trump which highlighted Joe Biden’s duplicity on his son’s business dealings in response to a claim by the copyright owner.

The meme showed Biden denying that he had ever spoken to his son Hunter about the latter’s overseas business dealings.

The clip then cuts to a Nickelback video with the lyrics, “Look at this photograph, every time I do it makes me laugh.”

A photograph of Biden, his son Hunter, and a man identified as a “Ukraine gas exec” on a golf course together appears on screen with hearts drawn around their heads.

The meme was removed by Twitter this morning in response to a request from the copyright owner.

Warner Media Group owns the rights to Nickelback’s music and it is likely they who asked Twitter to take it down.

The copyright claim is completely without merit as the meme is clearly transformative and therefore fair use.

This clearly seems like a political move to prevent more people from seeing the meme and uncovering Biden’s duplicity.

Source: State Department IG Has Been Sitting on ‘Urgent’ Ukraine Matter for 4 Months

WASHINGTON, DC - JULY 07: U.S. State Department Inspector General Steve Linick (L) and I. Charles McCullough III (R), inspector general of the intelligence community, testify during a hearing before House Oversight and Government Reform Committee July 7, 2016 on Capitol Hill in Washington, DC. The committee held a hearing …

By Edwin Mora

The inspector general (IG) at the U.S. Department of State has requested to provide an “urgent” briefing related to Ukraine to congressional staffers on Wednesday afternoon on a matter that he was made aware of four months ago, Breitbart News has learned.

A Trump administration official told Breitbart News that Steve Linick, the IG at the State Department who began his tenure under former President Barack Obama in 2013, “has been sitting on the alleged ‘urgent’ matter for four months.”

Citing anonymous sources, ABC News first reported the upcoming IG briefing to staffers from various committees in the House and Senate, noting that it came at the behest of Linick.

Linick is expected to focus on “documents obtained from the department’s Office of the Legal Adviser related to the State Department and Ukraine,” ABC News reported.

The administration official indicated to Breitbart News that the documents were initially turned over to a non-political lawyer in the civil service, who in turn gave them to Linick four months ago.

Echoing ABC News, the administration official identified the subject of the briefing as Rudy Giuliani, U.S. President Donald Trump’s personal attorney, and Ukraine.

The details behind the “urgent” briefing “remain unknown,” ABC News acknowledged. However, it added:

Linick is expected to meet with congressional staff in a secure location on Capitol Hill.

The unusual nature and timing of the briefing – during a congressional recess – suggests it may be connected to a recent intelligence community whistleblower allegation which describes, in part, the State Department’s role in coordinating interactions between Rudy Giuliani, the president’s personal attorney, and Ukrainian officials.

On Wednesday, hours before the briefing, U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo confirmed that he was on the July 25 call between Trump and his Ukrainian counterpart, Volodymyr Zelensky. The call is at the center of imminent impeachment proceedings that Democrats in the House have vowed to pursue.

Democrats argue that Trump pressured Zelensky to investigate former Vice President Joe Biden and his son Hunter.

Schiff Learned About Deep State CIA Spy’s Accusations Several Days Before ‘Whistleblower’ Filed Complaint

CAP

 

House Intelligence Chairman Adam Schiff (D-CA) learned about the Deep State CIA spy’s accusations against President Trump several days before the officer filed a whistleblower complaint.

It is blatantly obvious that Adam Schiff is one of the main architects of this coup against Trump and worked with the Brennan protege to help him craft the complaint.

Then just days after the whistleblower filed a claim of wrongdoing by President Trump, an aide to Schiff flew to Ukraine.

The trip by a staffer on the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence, on which Schiff serves as chairman, was “sponsored and organized by the Atlantic Council think tank,” Breitbart reported. “The council is funded by and routinely works in partnership with Burisma, the natural gas company at the center of allegations regarding Joe Biden and his son, Hunter Biden.”

So Schiff knew about the accusations well before the CIA spy filed a whistleblower complaint and planned accordingly.

Schiff colluded with the Deep State CIA spy. This is a conspiracy against President Trump.

The New York Times reported:

The Democratic head of the House Intelligence Committee, Representative Adam B. Schiff of California, learned about the outlines of a C.I.A. officer’s concerns that President Trump had abused his power days before the officer filed a whistle-blower complaint, according to a spokesman and current and former American officials.

Before going to Congress, the C.I.A. officer had a colleague convey his accusations to the agency’s top lawyer. Concerned about how that avenue for airing his allegations was unfolding, the officer then approached a House Intelligence Committee aide, alerting him to the accusation against Mr. Trump. In both cases, the original accusation was vague.

The House staff member, following the committee’s procedures, suggested the officer find a lawyer to advise him and file a whistle-blower complaint. The aide shared some of what the officer conveyed to Mr. Schiff. The aide did not share the whistle-blower’s identity with Mr. Schiff, an official said.

“Like other whistle-blowers have done before and since under Republican and Democratic-controlled committees, the whistle-blower contacted the committee for guidance on how to report possible wrongdoing within the jurisdiction of the intelligence community,” said Patrick Boland, a spox for Schiff.

The CIA spy filed a whistleblower complaint in order to remain anonymous under the Whistleblower Protection Act.

The Deep State spook filed a complaint on August 12 based on second-hand knowledge and hearsay of Trump’s July 25 phone call to Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky, yet the Democrats are using this hit to push to impeach President Trump.

The ‘whistleblower’ alleged that Trump used quid pro quo to pressure Zelensky to investigate the Biden crime family — the Trump-Zelensky transcript was released and showed evidence to the contrary.

The whistleblower’s complaint was not written by a CIA officer, said former CIA analyst Fred Fleitz — the whistleblower had help and it looks life Schiff may be one of the people who helped him write the complaint.

Schiff not only helped this CIA spy from the beginning, he libeled President Trump and read a completely fabricated transcript of Trump’s call to Zelensky during a congressional hearing.

President Trump called for Adam Schiff to resign from Congress for the “crime of fraudulently fabricating a statement of the President of the United States and reading it to Congress.”

President Trump said Adam Schiff should be charged and arrested for treason.

House Democrats Call in Fired US Ambassador to Testify – Corrupt Official Refused Visas to Ukrainians Who Had Dirt on Obama to Give to Trump

By Jim Hoft

House Democrats this week called in fired US Ambassador Marie Yovanovich to testify in their sham impeachment proceedings.

Ambassador Yovanovich is a noted Trump-hater who blocked Ukrainian officials from traveling to the United States to hand over evidence of Obama misconduct during the 2016 election to President Trump.

Yovanovich was US ambassador to Ukraine during the 2016 election when the Ukrainian government was colluding with the DNC and Hillary Campaign to undermine the US presidential election.

Ukrainian Prosecutor General Yuriy Lutsenkoko told journalists in March that Yovanovitch gave him a do not prosecute list during their first meeting.

The president ordered her removal from her post in Ukraine.
She was openly anti-Trump.

This video from The Ingraham Angle is from March.

U.S. Ambassador to Ukraine Marie Yovanovich was appointed by Obama as ambassador to Ukraine in 2016.

She was US ambassador to Ukraine during the 2016 election when the Ukrainian government was colluding with the DNC and Hillary Campaign to undermine the US presidential election.

Starting in 2018 Yovanovich denied Ukrainian officials visas to enter the United States to hand over evidence of Obama administration misconduct to Trump administration officials.

US Ambassador Yovanovich, an Obama appointee, was removed from her post in Ukraine early in May 2019.

Pat Buchanan: “This What The Deep State Does To Outsiders”

CAP

By Tyler Durden

Authored by Patrick Buchanan via Buchanan.org,

“This is a very sad time for our country. There is no joy in this,” said Nancy Pelosi Saturday.

“We must be somber. We must be prayerful. … I’m heartbroken about it.”

Thus did the speaker profess her anguish — just four days after announcing that her Democratic House would conduct an impeachment inquiry of President Donald Trump.

But is this how it really went down? Is this how Pelosi came to authorize an impeachment inquiry before she read the transcript of the conversation between Trump and Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky?

Another explanation, based on the actual events, suggests itself.

By late September, Pelosi was under constant fire from the House “resistance” that wanted Trump impeached and whose numbers were slowly growing. What was the speaker to do?

The judiciary committee is the body historically authorized by a vote of the full House to conduct impeachment inquiries. But to Pelosi this was looking like a loser, a dead end, a formula for failure followed by a backlash against House Democrats and her own removal as speaker in January 2021, if not before.

How so? Her judiciary committee chairman, Jerrold Nadler, in his investigation of Trump, had presided over a debacle of a hearing where Trump ally Corey Lewandowski mocked the members. House Budget Committee Chair John Yarmuth called the hearing a “fiasco.”

Thus, when news broke of a July 25 conversation between Trump and the president of Ukraine, during which Trump allegedly urged Zelensky “eight times” to investigate Joe Biden and son Hunter Biden’s connections to corrupt oligarchs, Pelosi seized upon it to solve all her problems.

To satisfy the red-hots in her Democratic caucus, she announced an impeachment inquiry on her own. To spare her moderates the pain of having to vote for or against an inquiry, she skipped the floor vote.

To ensure the investigation was done swiftly, she took the franchise from Nadler and his judiciary committee and handed it to Adam Schiff and the intelligence committee. Now she is urging a narrowing of the articles of impeachment to just one — Trump’s request of Ukraine’s president to look into the Bidens.

Pelosi’s hope: Have one House vote on a single article of impeachment by year end; then send it on to the Senate for trial and be done with it.

This is Nancy Pelosi’s fast track to impeachment of Trump and ruination of his presidency. But, to be sure, she is “heartbroken” about all this.

For three years, the media-deep state axis has sought to overturn the election of 2016 and bring down Trump, starting with Russia-gate. Now it appears to have tailored and weaponized the impeachment process.

That is what this is all about. It always is. Then-editor Ben Bradlee of The Washington Post, when it looked like the Iran-Contra matter might break Ronald Reagan’s presidency, after his 49-state landslide, chortled, “We haven’t had this much fun since Watergate.

This is what the deep state does to outsiders Middle America sends to Washington to challenge or dispossess it.

How should the Republican Party and Trump’s base respond?

Recognize reality. Whether or not Trump was ill-advised to suggest to the president of Ukraine that passing on the fruits of the investigation of Joe and Hunter Bidenthe end game is bringing down Trump, democracy’s equivalent of regicide.

While the “whistleblower,” whose memo is the basis of these impeachment hearings, is well on his way to Beltway beatification, no campaign to depose the president can be allowed to cloak itself in anonymity indefinitely, for one man’s whistleblower is another man’s seditionist.

Whom did the whistleblower collaborate with to produce his memo? What is his background? What are his biases? The people have a right to know. And democracy dies in darkness, does it not?

Not until 30 years after Watergate did we learn the “whistleblower” known as “Deep Throat” was a corrupt FBI veteran agent who leaked grand jury secrets to The Washington Post to discredit acting Director Pat Gray and thereby become FBI director himself.

His identity was sheltered for three decades. For whose benefit?

Republicans should not allow Democrats to fast-track this process but should give their troops time to recognize the stakes involved, organize a defense and repel this latest establishment attempt to overthrow a president elected to come to the capital to corral that establishment.

Force all the Democratic candidates for president to take a stand on removing Trump for high crimes — over a nebulous phone call to Kiev.

And the U.S. Senate should refuse to take up and should return to the House any bill of impeachment done in a short-circuited and savagely partisan manner, as this one is being done. There should be no rush to judgment.

If the election of 2020 is going to be about President Trump, tell the nation that the people will decide his political fate in November 2020, and that of Joe Biden if Democrats believe he is as pure as the driven snow and choose to nominate him.
