Hot Take: GOP Negotiating Witnesses Is Now “Part Of The Cover Up”

The GOP Senate may be pulling that kill switch sooner than later

Oh, Jerry, Jerry, Jerry

House Judiciary Committee Chairman Jerrold Nadler (D-N.Y.), one of the House impeachment managers in President Trump’s Senate trial, said Sunday that Republicans looking to block or negotiate on witnesses are “part of the cover-up.”

Nadler’s comments came in response to a question on whether Democrats would consider calling former Vice President Joe Biden’s son Hunter Biden to testify in exchange for calling witnesses put forward by Democrats.

Nadler dismissed the idea of negotiating on witnesses as part of the trial.

“In any trial, all relevant witnesses must be heard,” Nadler said on CBS’s “Face the Nation.”

We actually don’t need Hunter: we need Joe, who should explain why he demanded a Ukranian prosecutor investigating the company his son was on the board of be fired or a billion in aid would be denied.

“Any Republican senator who says there should be no witnesses or even that witnesses should be negotiated is part of the cover-up,” Nadler said.

    Teach typed: we need Joe, who should explain why he demanded a Ukranian (sic) prosecutor investigating the company his son was on the board of be fired or a billion in aid would be denied.

    That is the right-wing meme, but turns out it’s just not true.

    Teach didn’t seem to investigate the story at all. But now that he knows better he’ll likely stop lying about Biden and tRump.

    Ukraine ousted Prosecutor General Victor Shokin, who was believed to be corrupt by the US, the EU, the IMF, the EBRD and anti-corruption forces within Ukraine. Shokin’s deputy resigned over Shokin’s corruption.

    In fact, pressure was on Shokin for NOT vigorously investigating Burisma, the owner Zlochevsky, as well as other connected oligarchs. Vitaly Kasko, who had been Shokin’s deputy overseeing international cooperation before resigning in February 2016 citing corruption in the office, provided documents to Bloomberg News indicating that under Shokin, the investigation into Burisma had been dormant.

    tRump’s entire story that he was only interested in corruption in Ukraine and Biden just happened to get caught up in it, is a sham. tRump engineered a scheme attempting to force Ukraine to disparage tRump’s most likely 2020 opponent. It’s clear what tRump did, the only question is whether this kind of traitorous behavior is impeachable. If it isn’t, what is?

    Biden testifying would be part of the GOPher side show, but Biden would like be happy to do it, if just to further embarrass tRump.

    Clearly, Jeffery is getting as scared as the rest of the Demos of Gropin’ Jjoe being called as a witless. Having him backed into a corner would be a disaster for the Demos and they’ve waited to long to come up with a rebuttal to the CFR vid.

    Obviously, the story is getting some traction and Gropin’ Joe on the stand, under oath, his teeth falling out, mumbling and stuttering, talking about how Franklin Roosevelt led the Rough Riders up Bunker Hill at Antietam, forced to tell the truth would throw the election to the Rs.

    And I love Jeffery’s little tough-guy admonition, Make certain you understand that sentence before moving on.

    Got it? OK.

    Actually, it’s more of a plea. A last ditch hope the Lefties can snow somebody.

    See where the rally in Richmond went off without a hitch? See where a delegation of VA sheriffs showed up pledging they wouldn’t violate the 2nd Amendment?

    Jeffery is sure riding a cold streak.

    Jeffery’s just doin’ what he’s paid to do and it looks like Gropin’ Joe is getting scared.

    Gropin’ Joe issued a memo to media outlets on Monday warning them against spreading “false accusations”. He ordered Fake News they must state clearly and unambiguously that they have been discredited and debunked by authoritative sources .

    Wow, ordering Fake News. Usually they know what to suppress.

    And who are these authoritative sources?

    Jeffery L Keene?

    • It hardly matters which democrat wins the nomination. They all have the same platform and Trump is going to win in any case.

      Since it looks like the Democratic party is ready to throw Biden under the bus, I’m just wondering why the national media is still so incurious about his decades of corruption and making everyone in his family millionaires. Ukraine is just the most recent.

    It’s much worse (or better, depending on your stance) than “GOP Negotiating Witnesses Is Now “Part Of The Cover Up””.

    If the Republicans in the Senate don’t vote to convict TMT (The Mighty Trumpster), THAT will be “Part Of The Cover Up.”

      I like the part in one of the speeches by some black Congress creep that all of the government is in on helping Trump and keeping everything secreat. Funny they were not interested in the big O spying and Hillary selling nuclear material to the enemy or selling influence.

      • Kye says:

        Or giving weapons to Mexican drug terrorists or sending palates of cash to terrorist enablers.

      • Elwood P. Dowd says:

        The Big O was one of the greatest basketball players of all time, and has not been accused of spying. Until now.

        HRC did not sell nuclear material to Trump’s benefactor.

        Most of what TrumpubliCons believe to be true is false.

  6. Elwood P. Dowd says:

    The Trumpublicans recognize that they are circling the drain – it’s why you’re in full blown panic.

    Trump will lose bigly (if he even runs).

    Dems will gain House seats.

    The GOP will lose the Senate. Good bye Cory Gardner, Martha McSally, Moscow Mitch, Susan Collins, Thom Tillis…
