So to recap: a whistle blower from the CIA who admits he/she did not listen to the Trump-Zelensky call and did not see the transcript, made a slew of
allegations that they "heard" and "learned" from other people that Trump threatened Zelensky, made him promises, threatened to withhold aid, offered a
direct quid pro quo, AND that there was a coverup.
The press freaking explodes-- this is the one! Why, the acting DNI even threatened to resign!
Democrats screech "Impeach! "
So what does the administration do in response to the breathless coverage? Trump denies it. Trump immediately says, go ahead release the
transcript and the complaint. Trump and Levensky hold a joint press conference in which Zelensky shrugs and says, "No, you heard. We had I think good
phone call. It was normal. We spoke about many things. So, I think, and you read it, that nobody pushed. Pushed me."
The acting DNI comes out and says, "uhm, no. At no point have I threatened to resign".
Even reports that the IG found the whistle blower to be a rabid partisan.
And now, after we read the transcript and hear from the principals, it didn't happen. None of the whistle blowers complaint appears to be supported by
evidence. In fact the complaint itself starts as hear-say. Once again, the story rests on innuendo and rumour.
And how do we know that anyone with a brain already knows this story is dead in the water? That it has all been yet another in a string political
hoaxes overhyped by the DNC and a rabid media?
"The consensus in our caucus is that our focus now is on this allegation," Pelosi told reporters earlier in the day, adding: "This is a coverup."
That's right. The fact that this allegation actually has zero supporting evidence is now evidence of ... A coverup. The very fact it appears untrue,
Nancy wants you to believe is really
evidence that it has all been coveredup.
Clever stunt by the partisan whistle blower, though...
Remember what Chuck Schumer (D) publicly warned the President some time back? "If you cross the intelligence agencies, they can screw you six ways to
