Acting Director of National Intelligence Joseph Maguire testified before the House Intelligence Committee today, as Democrats attempted to paint the picture that President Donald Trump committed an impeachable offense for a conversation he had with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky in July.
A rough transcript of the conversation was released publicly yesterday, and a complaint filed by a CIA whistle-blower regarding Trump’s alleged inappropriate behavior was released to the public today. Democrats attempted to capitalize on this news during the hearing but failed abysmally, as there was nothing that could be considered improper in any of the disclosed documents.
Rep. Adam Schiff (D-CA), who serves as Chairman of the Intelligence Committee, simply replaced the real transcripts with ones made up by himself in his opening statements. He was called out by Rep. Mike Turner (R-OH) for his stunning dishonesty shortly afterward.

Schiff failed once more after he attempted to grill Maguire and put words into his mouth regarding how the whistle-blower’s complaint was disclosed to the committee.
Rep. Schiff: "So, you exercised your discretion to withhold the complaint from the committee?

Maguire confirmed that the President did not attempt to find out the identity of the whistle-blower when questioned by Rep. Jackie Speier (D-CA).
.@RepSpeier: "Did the president of the United States ask you to find out the identity of the whistleblower?"
Acting DNI Maguire: "Although I would not normally discuss my conversations with the president, I can tell you, emphatically, no."

Maguire confirmed that the President’s commitment to transparency is “unprecedented” regarding his communications with Ukraine while being questioned by Rep. Devin Nunes (R-CA).

At a certain point, Maguire referred to Rep. Eric Swalwell (D-CA) as “Congresswoman,” perhaps in Freudian slip toward the incessantly hostile enemy of President Trump.

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA), who called an impeachment inquiry of Trump over the whistle-blower complaint before actually reading it, appears to be making a case against Trump on alleged obstruction of documents that show he committed no wrongdoing.
Aaaaaaaand…we’re back to “obstruction.” At least we got to skip the whole Special Counsel circus this time and go straight to “the Dems don’t have anything.” pic.twitter.com/FHDJS0OovI

Members of the House Freedom Caucus – President Trump’s most reliable allies in Congress – are already gloating regarding the overreach by Democrats, who are grasping at straws while ginning up more publicly for their front-running presidential candidate Joe Biden’s scandals.
"Whistleblower"? To something they haven’t witnessed first-hand?
More like a rogue, self-appointed private eye scooping up second-hand gossip and reading public news articles.

The Inspector General for the Intelligence Community found that the so-called “whistleblower” had “some indicia of an arguable political bias… in favor of a rival political candidate.”
That’s Washington speak for “they were out to get the President.”

This continued suggestion from Washington Democrats that the WH is "covering up" the Ukraine issue (when the WH published the documents) is about as serious as the time they also tried to claim a cover-up after the WH released the full Mueller report
As in—it is not serious

Nancy Pelosi has caved to the most radical elements of her party.

President Trump is rubbing it in as well, knowing that he has his political opposition right where he wants them.
“It’s a disgrace to our country. It's another witch hunt.”

President Trump made the facts clear.
President Zelensky made the facts clear.
The transcript made the facts clear.

President Trump: "Adam Schiff doesn't talk about Joe Biden and his son walking away with millions of dollars from Ukraine and then millions of dollars from China. Walking away in a quick meeting with millions of dollars. He doesn't talk about Joe Biden firing a prosecutor." pic.twitter.com/SyxyQ98KQp

This may be the most humiliating political miscalculation by the Democrats to date, as their chances to win the presidency back in 2020 have never looked worse.
Defense Secretary Confirms White House Will Let Cities Burn and Let Mobs Loot Without Military Intervention
The White House seems content to let America burn on their watch.
Defense Secretary Mark Esper has made it clear that the Trump administration will not be intervening with federal forces to put down mobs in cities that have been on fire for days amidst leftist riots and strife.
Esper started his press conference by bemoaning the “horrible crime” committed by police officer Derek Chauvin against serial felon George Floyd in the Minneapolis streets and said all the cops involved should “be held accountable for his murder.”
“With great sympathy, I want to extend the deepest of condolences to the family and friends of George Floyd, for me and the department,” Esper said during a briefing at the Pentagon.
“Racism is real in America, and we must all do our very best to recognize it, to confront it, and to eradicate it,” he added, echoing Black Lives Matter talking points.
Esper made it clear that there are no plans to unleash military on the streets to restore order. He claimed that the emergency going on right now did not indicate the need for this kind of response. Esper is apparently content to let the streets burn, property be destroyed, and law enforcement to be run down in the streets like dogs without intervening.
“The option to use active-duty forces in a law enforcement role should only be used as a matter of last resort and only in the most urgent and dire of situations. We are not in one of those situations now,” Esper said.
Esper should tell that to retired St. Louis police captain David Dorn, the 77-year-old man who was gunned down in the streets by rioting savages on Tuesday morning.
Big League Politics reported:
Dorn, who retired from the St. Louis Police Department in 2007, was found dead around 2:30AM on Tuesday morning. Surveillance camera footage revealed that he had been shot and killed by a looter as he was defending Lee’s Pawn and Jewelry.
His wife, Ann Marie Dorn, who still works for the police department, stated that David was a friend of the pawn shop’s owner and would secure the premises when the burglar’s alarm went off at the property. Dorn was 77 years old.
President Donald Trump mourned for Dorn in a Tuesday Facebook post, pointing to the senior citizen as a tragic casualty of the nationwide race riots that have resulted in widespread death and destruction following the death of George Floyd.
Esper should also tell that this situation is not “urgent and dire” to the family of the U.S. Marshal that was shot in the head by a thug and later pronounced deceased during Las Vegas riots on Monday.
Big League Politics reported:
8 News Now Metro of Las Vegas is reporting that a U.S. Marshal has been killed after being shot in the head during Monday’s race riots.
Reports emerged late on Monday that a U.S. Marshal had been killed during a shootout with an armed rioter near the city’s federal courthouse.
8 News Now originally reported that the marshal had been shot in the head. The shooting death appeared to take place after the evening’s protest and riot activities had been contained by law enforcement, perhaps suggesting that an armed rioter intentionally targeted law enforcement in the shooting.
Because of deep state bureaucrats like Esper, President Trump is watching his country descend into chaos and anarchy while doing little other than offering bluster as his nation burns.
