Nadler Demands “All Witnesses Must Be Heard, Except Hunter Biden”, Chuck Todd Defends Parnas’ “Evidence”

2161

NBC’s Chuck Todd reconfirmed his role in the ‘resistance’ this weekend as he clashed with Senator David Perdue (R- G.A.) on Sunday over the upcoming impeachment trial and whether Lev Parnas should testify.

Perdue told Todd on NBC’s “Meet the Press” that Parnas, a colleague of President Trump’s attorney, Rudy Giuliani, shouldn’t testify because his testimony would be considered “second-hand information.”

“This is a distraction,” Perdue said.

“This a person that’s been indicted. Right now, he’s out on bail. He’s been meeting with the House Intel Committee. If the House felt like this information was pertinent, I would think they would have included him.”

Todd fired back and said:

“How is it second hand? He was in Ukraine. He was doing the bidding,” adding that Parnas has key “material evidence that might help connect some dots.”

Perdue responded by saying Parnas is trying “to get his sentence reduced.”

Perdue defended Trump’s actions in Ukraine by indicating the administration was concerned about corruption involving an American citizen. He also rejected a suggestion by Todd that Trump was close to Parnas.

Parnas made the rounds on the mainstream media last week, stopping by none other than the Rachel Maddow Show Wednesday night to claim that he was sent to Ukraine at the order of Rudy Guiliani and Trump to uncover dirt on Joe Biden’s son, Hunter Biden.

The schizophrenia is astonishing.

In October of 2019, European businessman, Lev Parnas, who claimed to have “explosive information about corruption involving Hillary Clinton and Joe Biden”, was arrested at Dulles airport on “campaign finance violations.”

And, now, just three months later, Parnas is dropping impeachment bombshells on Trump.

The interview came the same day the impeachment articles were delivered to the Senate.

Separately on Sunday, Nadler spoke with Brennan on CBS’s “Face the Nation” that “in any trial, all relevant witnesses must be heard,” except, Nadler added, for Hunter Biden, who should not be a witness in the impeachment trial because he does not know the allegations against the president.

 

So – to clarify the left’s position on witnesses:

  • Parnas – who is at best a secondary witness and worst desperate for a deal to avoid prison – should be a witness “as he can connect the dots;”
  • but Hunter Biden – who is absolutely at the center of the whole debacle with regard corruption and Trump’s decisions – shouldn’t be a witness because “he has no knowledge of the accusations.”

Once again the Dems ties themselves in circles after Pelosi slow-played the process – despite exclaiming how critical and urgent it was.

Senator Lindsey Graham (R- S.C.) held nothing back in his disgust at the political “malarkey” under way. In an interview with “Fox News Sunday” anchor Chris Wallace, graham blasted that House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D- C.A.) had “orchestrated the trial of holy hell” against the president next week.

Graham said from day one, Pelosi and Democrats waged war against Trump.

“You took 48 days to impeach this president,” he told Wallace.

You did not allow him to call any witnesses. He could not have a lawyer present during the House Intel Committee. This has been a partisan railroad job. And you’re asking for fairness in the Senate? You violated every norm of what we do.”

Graham ended the interview by saying once the impeachment trial is over, the nation can start healing.

This has been a political hit job. This is political revenge. What they’re doing to the presidency is a danger to the institution itself,” he warned.

The impeachment trial starts Tuesday, and this will be one of the most crucial moments of the Trump presidency as the Democrats have gone all-in.

Trump tweeted last week: “I JUST GOT IMPEACHED FOR MAKING A PERFECT PHONE CALL!”

Trump’s legal team said Saturday the impeachment trial is “a dangerous attack on the right of the American people to freely choose their president.”

This is a brazen and unlawful attempt to overturn the results of the 2016 election and interfere with the 2020 election, now just months away,” the legal team stated.

And one can’t help but feel the Trump legal team and Graham are right when the schizophrenic blinkered perspectives of the House managers’ media appearances (and liberal media acquiescence) is considered.

  1. Nadler has no say in what goes on in the Senate. If Nadler wanted witnesses, he should have done so in the House. Instead of falling asleep through testimonies of “experts”, from the Ivy Tower of Indoctrination, maybe allowing the Real witnesses to testify. But no, this was just a set up orchestrated by Schiff and Nadler to impeach someone who they didn’t like. These two inept characters feel their idea of who should be President, OVERRULES the 63 Million Voters who did.

    To me both, along with Pelosi are abusing their powers in the House. Now that this farce is in the Senate, I am hoping that once the inept scam is introduced, there will be a dismissal. Why should the American people have to have their time wasted even more on Nadler’s “If you elect me Judicial Committee chairman, I can get the impeachment done”, inept farce.

    Time to drop this “elite” fantasy of being Kings and Queens, but back to the Basics which is OUR Constitution. This is just a way for the Democrats and their globalists handlers to destroy our Constitution. Destroy the Executive Branch, and the power goes to the Senate/House. And then destroy the House and it’s all be under the Senate. No wonder Chuckie is drooling so much.

    GOD BLESS PRESIDENT TRUMP! GOD HELP THE USA!

      “Our democracy is under attack. It is under ongoing attack. We have a president that is cooperating or leveraging, working with foreign powers to try to undermine the fairness of an election. We need to act.”

      lol, yes YOUR type of democracy is under attack. It is NO way CLOSE to the Constitution.

      Booker, get T-Bone to help you read the President’s transcript. It seems you are having a “comprehension” issue. But hey, the Democrat/Socialist party loves stupid. lol.

      “History has its eyes on us. How are we going to operate? We cannot cave to partisanship and tribalism that’s destroying our nation. In this moment, we’ve got to let our highest selves come through and sit in those seats and uphold the oath we all just swore last week and do right by our nation to ensure that this democracy endures.”

      Oh yea Booker, you will be one of the “clowns” in the TRUE history. What do you think the House did? It was all partisanship and tribalism for this fake “Impeachment”.

      Regarding your highest selves ever, you better start swimming upward from your Swamp because all of you swamp creatures are a far cry from doing right for OUR Nation and Constitution.

      When history is written, I can humbly say YES the USA has endured and was saved from bat-crazy people like Booker.

      GOD BLESS PRESIDENT TRUMP! GOD HELP THE USA!

      “The articles of impeachment are constitutionally invalid on their face. They fail to allege any crime or violation of law whatsoever let alone ‘high crimes and misdemeanors’ as required by the Constitution,” explained Cipollone and Sekulow. “The articles of impeachment now before the Senate are an affront to the Constitution of the United States, our democrat institutions, and the American people.”

      I know you and Schiff heard this from Rep. John Ratcliffe, Rep. Devin Nunes, Rep. Doug Collins, Rep. Jim Johnson, Rep. Mike Turner, and on and on. But now you hear it from President Trump’s lawyers that your impeachment scam is just a “house of cards” because all you worried about was the “clock and calendar”.

      Senate needs to dismiss this completely.

      GOD BLESS PRESIDENT TRUMP! GOD HELP THE USA!

  2. No, no, no, Mr Nadler. You don’t get to control the house and the senate. You did your one sided trial where the republicans couldn’t call witnesses, you made it that they didn’t have to answer questions that the republicans ask ect. And so on.
    So if you want a fair trial then if witnesses will be called then all that had anything to do with this needs put under oath. That includes YOU, Schiff, Pelosi, Hunter, Joe, Storzk, Page all. Your not turning this into a Schitt show. You will all be held under penalty of perjury and treason. The democrats are the evil in the United States.

  3. So nadler wants all the witnesses to be heard except the criminal the Democrats made up. First off, nadler has no right to say anything. Second, nadler must carry his balls around in a wheelbarrow! Piece of shit asshole!!!!!

  4. I am disgusted with this site, I write a true comment about the corruption, lies from the Democrats, they delete or come up with some other excuse. This is unfair, I have a right to my opinion, not theirs. The Dems have had control, now is Republican time. If the Democrats and witnesses swear to tell the truth and lie, they will be arrested, If they lie, they will be arrested. So, let the games begin and end. If this message is deleted, I am reporting to several people.

  5. How do you have a trial where the accusations are:, “that you have to prove your innocence”? Do they expect you to deliver the “name of a crime to defend”, so they can then stick it on you. NO DEMOCRAT BASTARDS, YOU SHOW PROOF & EVIDENCE OF A CRIME, and then the President would have to prove his innocence. Allegations, Hearsay, Profiling a crime thread out of nowhere, is NOT PROOF OR EVIDENCE……………YOU DON’T HAVE TO BE A LAWYER TO KNOW THERE IS NO FOUNDATION IN THIS IMPEACHMENT PROCESS…………….I DON’T KNOW WHY THIS TRIAL IS TAKING PLACE FOR A “NON-CRIME” ACCUSATION BY A$$HOLES.
    ………………….MOVE TO DISMISS, FOR LACK OF PROOF & EVIDENCE!……………..
    The biggest threat to America is the foreign power called the “Democrat Party”……….It should be abolished and replaced by a new American Party………Democrat Party SOLD OUT TO MANY FOREIGN COUNTRIES & ENEMIES.
    Biden, Alleged Whistleblower, Clintons, Shitff, Pelosi MUST ALL BE CALLED AS WITNESSES! and they don’t get to add more allegations other than the 2 that were “rushed”.

  6. Fuck this c—-k su—-jer Nader and the rest of his bottom dwelling buddies on the left. They should all be tried for treason and shot at dawn. Better yet, just flush them down the bowl so they can be with the rest of the turds in their party

    • Fuck Nadler Trump already gave him a beatdown in New York over some zoning issues years ago. That’s why he`s pissed cause he can`t win!! Trump 2020 wins again!!!
