Democrats Drop Snippets of Text Messages From Volker’s Testimony They Claim Are a Bombshell

Posted at 9:30 am on October 4, 2019 by Bonchie

This broke late last night. It was so late that getting any real information or reaction to go on was nearly impossible, as most people were a sleep. It seems the story is still in the same place this morning.

What this centers on is Kurt Volker’s testimony, which I shared initial reactions to yesterday. The demeanor after the testimony and Adam Schiff’s behavior during it left the impression that he was scrambling. Apparently he was, as he and the other Democrat chairs decided to cherry pick some text messages to release last night in order to try to regain the upper hand.

Let’s take a look at them and talk about what they may or may not mean.

    JUST OUT: TRUMP's @WhiteHouse signaled that ZELENSKY's Oval Office visit was linked to his ability to convince Trump that Ukraine would investigate the claims that Ukrainians meddled in 2016 to boost @HillaryClinton, according to this text from KURT VOLKER to a top Zelensky aide.

    THE TERMS OF THE DEAL, as understood by both sides:

    ZELENSKY would publicly commit to investigating a BIDEN-linked company & claims about Ukrainian meddling to help @HillaryClinton in 2016.

    — & in exchange —

    TRUMP would give ZELENSKY the @WhiteHouse visit he coveted.

There’s a ton of editorializing going on here by Vogel, who is supposed to be a reporter. What deal is he talking about? There’s no actual deal spelled out here in this purposely curated text exchange (it was obviously longer than two messages). Pay attention to the dates because they are important. This one happened on August 10th, before Ukraine even knew about aid being held up, i.e. that’s not a factor here. The goal posts have now moved to Ukraine getting a White House visit, which seems like quit the walk down by Democrats. But there’s actually no direct mention of reciprocity at all here.

A White House visit by a foreign leader is a quid pro quo? Good grief.

It is if the President is renting out the Lincoln Bedroom like a five-star Hotel, like Bubba Clinton did.

The White House was the 1st Air BnB
Any political party that can't cough up anything better than a treacherous brain-damaged old vulture like Joe Biden deserves to die a slow death.
