With all this impeachment stuff flying around these days I have tried to help my readers understand what is being said by the Congress and the witnesses.
I have posted the transcripts of the witnesses to the Intel Committee….. https://lobotero.com/2019/11/08/go-to-the-transcripts-4/
I try to be fair to the Repubs…..as much as I may not feel like it….it is important that we hear their side.
Now I would like to offer the so-called “Minority Report” (not to be confused with the Phillip K. Dick story) issued by the Repubs on that committee…..
A Republican report designed to counter Democrats’ impeachment case will argue that President Trump’s hesitation to meet with Ukraine’s president and provide military aid to the country was “entirely prudent.” The report, obtained by the AP, disputes that Trump was laying out a “quid pro quo” with Ukraine when he asked the country’s president to investigate Democrats. It says Trump holds a “deepseated, genuine, and reasonable skepticism” of Ukraine due to its history of corruption. The Republicans argue that Democrats are trying to impeach Trump because of his “outside the beltway” approach to diplomacy. The GOP report, which is 123 pages per CNN, is expected to be released Tuesday, the same day Democrats on the House intelligence committee will release their own report.
The House impeachment report will be unveiled Monday behind closed doors for key lawmakers as Democrats push ahead with the inquiry despite the White House’s declaration it will not participate in the first Judiciary Committee hearing. The Democratic majority on the House Intelligence Committee says the report, compiled after weeks of testimony, will speak for itself in laying out what Chairman Adam Schiff called the evidence of “wrongdoing and misconduct” by the president over his actions toward Ukraine. It was being made available for committee members to review ahead of a vote Tuesday to send it to the Judiciary Committee for Wednesday’s landmark hearing.
Below is the 123 page report issued by the GOP in advance to the start of the Judiciary Committee proceedings….
I will post on the report when it is released by the Dems on the Intel Committee as soon as it is released…..
