Is America waiting for the political drama that is playing out at the House to “spin itself out” of existence, as BRIGHT editor Inez F. Stepman puts it?
Fewer viewers tuned in to the hearings than did for Comey’s testimony during the Mueller report days (doesn’t it feel like a lifetime ago?), and the President is back up to his normal mid-40s in approval numbers.
As for Lt. Colonel Vindman
The latest testimony in the country’s ongoing soap opera was provided by Lt. Colonel Alexander Vindman and Special Envoy Kurt Volker. According to Democrats, the testimony confirmed the president’s corrupt purposes with regard to Ukraine and his political opponents.
But according to Republicans, the hearing wasn’t so one-sided. Vindman admitted to leaking the contents of the president’s July 25th phone call to two individuals, one of whom he named and the other whom he was prevented from naming by Chairman Adam Schiff. Schiff scolded Vindman for potentially naming the whistleblower, which is odd because Vindman had previously testified that he did not know the whistleblower’s identity.
As Conrad Black urges in American Greatness, Americans need to end this impeachment absurdity.
The most inveterate liar in the history of American politics, Representative Adam Schiff (D-Calif.), who makes Joseph R. McCarthy seem like a soothsayer, continues as chairman of the House Intelligence Committee to deny Republicans the right to cross-examine or call their witnesses. Meanwhile, the media just romp along like a pantomime horse nodding at this relentless avalanche of imbecilities and outrages.
There was never a legal basis to it (impeachment hearings) and there is no longer even an entertainment justification for it. It merely makes the United States appear absurd, to itself and to the world.
