There is talk that soon, Senate Republicans will vote to acquit Trump of the left’s impeachment charges. Democrats, hoping to drag this trial out as long as they can, recently pointed to leaked claims from John Bolton’s unreleased book. They are demanding the man take the stand to testify—against the president. But new videos have surfaced that shatters the left’s (and Bolton’s) scheme. Trump declared it, game over.
House Democrats made a pretty poor case for impeaching Donald Trump before the Senate. After their marathon opening arguments, the word on the street was that even moderate Republicans were ready to acquit. Democrats showed their case was rushed and badly constructed, fueled by partisan rage and wild conspiracy theories, not facts.
Then, as this week’s trial hearings were about to begin, a leaked piece of Bolton’s manuscript was revealed. Bolton claims—without evidence—that Donald Trump discussed with him plans to pressure Ukraine into investigating Joe Biden.
Democrats now want Bolton to testify in the trial to—I suppose—throw the president under the bus.
But a video clip surfaced that revealed Bolton had no problems with Trump’s interactions with Ukraine, just a short time ago.
In the Radio Free Europe/Radio Liberty interview clip, Bolton made no mention of any illicit quid pro quo, and acknowledged, as Republicans have claimed, that combating “corruption” in Ukraine was a “high priority” for the Trump administration…
Bolton also called Trump’s communications with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky “warm and cordial,” without mentioning any misconduct. It seemingly contradicted reported assertions in Bolton’s forthcoming book that Trump explicitly told him he wanted to tie military aid to Ukraine to an investigation into Joe and Hunter Biden.

How interesting. In August of 2019, Bolton said Trump’s interactions with Ukraine were “warm and cordial.” Why would he suddenly change his tune now—unless he’s being less than honest?
Trump tweeted out the clip, declaring the game was over.
But, wait! There’s more. House impeachment manager, Adam Schiff, has been very vocal about dragging Bolton before the Senate. He says Bolton’s testimony would prove all the nasty things the Democrats have been accusing Trump of.
Yet Fox News uncovered video footage that contradicts these claims, made by Schiff himself.
Separately, Fox News has identified clips of Rep. Adam Schiff, D-Calif., now the lead House impeachment manager, in which he says Bolton had a distinct “lack of credibility” and was prone to “conspiracy theories.” This week, Schiff said Bolton needed to testify in the impeachment trial as an important and believable witness.

Wow. In the clip, Adam Schiff says that not only is Bolton a “bad” witness, but he might be the “worst” the Democrats can bring up. He accuses Bolton of exaggerating things the president says and making up conspiracy theories. He said this on March 22, 2018—not that long ago.
But now Schiff demands we hear from Bolton? This is the same guy, Schiff. Why are you suddenly convinced he’ll be a reliable witness for your case? Is it because you’re getting desperate, with no other alternatives for salvaging your losing fight?
Then there’s the clip from 2010, where John Bolton admits he’d be willing to “say something [he] knew was false” to protect American interests. Or perhaps his own interests, like selling his book?
Ouch, Bolton. Ouch, Schiff. These swamp dwellers are trying so hard to stop a man making America great. They seem to be willing to do anything to take down the duly-elected President of the United States.
But they got nothing. No real evidence. No real facts proving Trump committed a crime. They are willing to stir up lies and rumors—even contradicting themselves—just to get their way.
But something tells me the Senate will not put up with their games.
When word of these clips spreads, there will be even less interest in calling up witnesses for the Senate trial. We might be looking at a quick acquittal—and yet another Donald Trump victory.
I guess the Democrats will have to come up with another bogus scheme.
