Morning Greatness: House GOPers Cross Schiff’s Star Chamber Borders

Good Thursday morning.

Here is what’s on the president’s agenda today:

  • The president receives his intelligence briefing
  • President Trump participates in the Diwali Ceremonial Lighting of the Diya
  • The president presents the Presidential Medal of Freedom to Roger Penske

It turns out this Ukraine-phone call “whistleblower” might be even more biased than initially thought

Hot off the presses.

The whistleblower at the center of Democrats’ impeachment inquiry acknowledged to the Intelligence Community Inspector General (ICIG) that bias against President Trump might be alleged against him or her for a third, previously unreported reason, sources familiar with the ICIG investigation tell Fox News.

Oh dear. The whistleblower promised his gossip-laden complaint was not politically motivated but it sure looks suspicious. We already know this “hero” is a registered Democrat who had contact with a presidential candidate that most probably was former VP Joe Biden.

We do not yet know what this third instance of bias is so stay tuned.

Republicans storm Schiff’s secret tribunal

Dozens of angry Republicans breached the border of House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff’s (D-Calif.) secret tribunal on Wednesday. Schiff who is taking pretend security steps to conceal his pretend impeachment inquiry from public scrutiny has prohibited Republicans from attending his publicity stunt hearing.

Led by House Judiciary Committee member Rep. Matt Gaetz (R-FL), the Republican lawmakers attempted to enter the room where Schiff has been bringing in current and former State Department officials to testify on whether President Trump withheld military aid from Ukraine in exchange for alleged help with the 2020 election.

The witness, senior Pentagon official working on Ukraine Laura Cooper, was the Schiff’s blue plate special but the Pelosi junta blocked members of the committee of jurisdiction, the House Armed Service Committee, from attending.

Democrats assault Mark Zuckerberg because he won’t police political ads

Facebook honcho Mark Zuckerberg appeared before the House Financial Services Committee, chaired by that carnival barker Maxine Waters (D-Calif.). You might remember her back when she was exhorting the mindless, rage-filled lefty grassroots to assault harass Trump affiliates in their every day life. The Democrats were absolutely bonkers yesterday that Zuckerberg does not and will not police the content of Facebook’s political ads, telling the control freak congressmen “people can see for themselves what politicians are saying.”

“Why should the very politicians who lead our country be held to a lower standard for truthfulness and decency than the average American?” asked Rep. Rashida Tlaib (D-Mich.).

Well dummy, they aren’t. You think Facebook (or Instagram, owned by Facebook) is taking down all of the photoshopped, face-tuned selfies littering the Facebook feed? Those are lies too, Rashida.  How about the ads for “that one thing” that causes cellulite to melt away? Nope, we don’t need corporations or congress policing people’s speech. Full stop. Game over.
