As I wrote on Thursday the only measure that moved the impeachment of the president forward was the Deep State’s need to cover up its illicit involvement in Ukraine.
While the public heard that President Trump’s conversation with Ukraine leader Volodymyr Zelensky suggesting he investigate why Vice President Joe Biden’s son Hunter was on the board of an Ukrainian energy company as being at the root of the impeachment hearings, it really had to do with the President mentioning many times that Crowdstrike — with offices in Kiev — had the the Hillary Clinton email servers that put impeachment front and center.
The Democrats know if the Clinton email servers are brought to light there could be a wave of indictments to follow. So this has the Deep State marshalling their troops.
You can see the desperation in how Rep. Adam Schiff and House Speaker Nancy Pelosi perverted the impeachment process with secret hearings with limited participation by Republicans. Schiff even managed witnesses in order not to answer certain questions during the hearings.
As I wrote on Thursday concerning the Schiff’s latest “whistleblower” Lt. Col. Alexander Vindman.
He worked under Fiona Hill on the National Security staff at the White House. Both he and his twin brother Lt. Col. Yevgheny Vindman are reportedly Ukrainian born and raised in Brooklyn, NY.
A third brother Leonid Vindman, who reportedly was fined $1.3 billion along with his employer Unicredit Bank for violating trading sanctions by trafficking nuclear energy materials to Libya and Iran, runs Tungsten Capital an investment firm with ties to former Soviet satellite countries.
The impeachment process will have to play out to see if the Democrats can get enough votes to move the Articles of Impeachment to the Senate for trial.
However, just remember there are federal investigators still looking into the Crowdstrike servers and the connected Blackberry phones.
This could be the hill the Dems choose to die on.
