Morning Greatness: Derp State Staffer to Testify Today That ORANGE MAN BAD

Good Tuesday morning.

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

  • The president has lunch with the Secretary of State
  • President Trump greets the 2019 recipients of the Presidential Award for Extraordinary Efforts to Combat Trafficking
  • The president receives his intelligence briefing
  • President Trump participates in a roundtable with supporters at Trump International
  • The president delivers remarks at a joint fundraising committee reception

The House Democrats are going to vote on something or other this week

The plan was always to avoid putting vulnerable House members on the impeachment record until Pelosi and her flying monkeys could leak and spin damaging “testimony” conveyed by the resistance media to shape public opinion. Mission accomplished, I guess, so let’s get it on!

“We are taking this step to eliminate any doubt as to whether the Trump administration may withhold documents, prevent witness testimony, disregard duly authorized subpoenas, or continue obstructing the House of Representatives,” Pelosi said.

“We won’t be able to comment fully until we see the actual text, but Speaker Pelosi is finally admitting what the rest of America already knew – that Democrats were conducting an unauthorized impeachment proceeding, refusing to give the President due process, and their secret, shady, closed-door depositions are completely and irreversibly illegitimate,” White House press secretary Stephanie Grisham said in a statement.

Derp stater to testify today that ORANGE MAN BAD

It’s so crazy how all of this damaging information keeps leaking! Another random derp stater will appear before the star chamber to talk about how concerned he was that President Trump wanted the Ukraine to clean up its corrupt act before getting some taxpayer cash money. The Washington Post wants you to know:

Lt. Col. Alexander S. Vindman, a top Ukraine expert on the National Security Council, was part of a small group of White House officials assigned to listen in on Trump’s July 25 call with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky. His testimony returns repeatedly to his fears that Trump’s manipulation of Ukraine policy to discredit his political rival, former vice president Joe Biden, is unethical and damaging to U.S. national security.

Get a load of this clown. We have the transcript and Trump did not manipulate “Ukraine policy to discredit his political rival, former vice president Joe Biden, is unethical and damaging to U.S. national security.” He asked the Ukrainians to investigate the prior government’s meddling in the 2016 election. Remember that? Literally the most important thing ever for more than two years was the investigation into 2016 election interference.  And unlike the RUSSIA hoax, the Ukraine’s meddling was explicit and on full display back in 2017.

Ukrainian government officials tried to help Hillary Clinton and undermine Trump by publicly questioning his fitness for office. They also disseminated documents implicating a top Trump aide in corruption and suggested they were investigating the matter, only to back away after the election. And they helped Clinton’s allies research damaging information on Trump and his advisers, a Politico investigation found.

The longer this operation against Trump continues, the more obvious the coup becomes.

“I did not think it was proper to demand that a foreign government investigate a U.S. citizen, and I was worried about the implications for the U.S. government’s support of Ukraine,” Vindman intends to tell lawmakers, according to a draft of his opening statement. OH, OH. OH. Have I got a story for you, Mr. Derp Stater.

Barr responds to Democrat smears

Attorney General William Barr has been smeared all over the place as part of the Democrats strategy to de-legitimize any findings coming out of the DoJ investigations into their naughty behavior. The Democrat-media entity claim he is acting like President Trump’s personal attorney because the agency is investigating what the Obama DoJ executed to undermine and then sabotage Trump’s presidency.

“That’s completely wrong and there is no basis for it, and I act on behalf of the United States,” Barr told Fox News.

“I do want to say that one of the reasons Mr. Durham is able to make the kind of progress he’s making is because Director [Christopher] Wray and his team at the FBI have just been outstanding in support and responsiveness given to Mr. Durham,” Barr said on Monday. “As you know, I’ve said previously that I felt there was a failure of leadership at the bureau in 2016 and part of 2017, but since Director Wray and his team have taken over there’s been a world of change.”

What’s the big deal with an AG protecting the president? What’s the big deal using the government intelligence apparatus to damage your political enemies? We all need to play according to the same rules and as they used to say in those anti-drug PSAs during the 80s: “I learned it by watching you!”
