(Gateway Pundit) – The House Intelligence Committee led by shifty Rep. Adam Schiff and ranking member Rep. Devin Nunes is holding a committee hearing on the anti-Trump whistleblower report with DNI Director Maguire.
As Devin Nunes said in his opening statment: This operation began with media reports—from the prime instigators of the Russian collusion hoax—that a whistleblower is claiming President Trump made a nefarious “promise” to a foreign leader. The released transcript of the call has already debunked that central assertion, but that didn’t matter. The Democrats simply moved the goalposts and began claiming that there doesn’t need to be a quid pro quo for this conversation to serve as the basis for impeaching the president.
Rep. John Ratcliffe destroyed all hopes for impeachment during his questioning of DNI Maguire.

Ratcliffe, who was asked by President Trump to take over the Director of National Intelligence but withdrew his name, tore into the liberal media lies and omissions.
Rep. Ratcliffe pointed out numerous errors, conjecture and lies in the whistleblower report on President Trump’s July conversation with President Zelensky from Ukraine.
Rep. Ratcliffe: Chairman Schiff wrote a letter on September 13th accusing you of being part of an “unlawful coverup” and then the Speaker of the House took it one step further. She went on national TV and said not once but twice that you broke the law… You were publicly accused of committing a crime and you were also falsely accused of committing a crime. You were required as you noted to follow the opinion of the Justice Department, 11 page report, on whether or not you were required to report the whistleblower complaint. Correct?… So you were publicly accused and you were wrongly accused and yet here today I have not heard an apology. Welcome to the House of Representatives with Democrats in charge… The whistleblower is in fact wrong in numerous respect… The Democrats are intent on impeaching President Trump for lawful conduct… The whistleblower then goes on to say, ‘I was not a direct witness to the events described’ … In other words, all of this is secondhand information. None of it is firsthand information. The sources the whistleblower bases his complaints on include the Washington Post, The New York Times, Politico, The Hill, Bloomberg, ABC News and others. In other words, much like the Steel Dossier the allegations in whistleblower’s complaints are based on third-hand mainstream media sources, rather than first hand information
Rep. Ratcliffe DESTROYED the liberal hack and whistleblower.
It was an incredible drubbing of this latest Democrat clown show.
