Bureaucrats Fail to Respond to Ratcliffe Question ‘Where Is the Impeachable Offense?’

Breitbart:

Neither acting United States Ambassador to Ukraine William Taylor nor Assistant Secretary in the European and Eurasian Bureau George Kent answered Representative John Ratcliffe (R-TX)’s direct question about what was “impeachable” about President Donald Trump’s routine phone call with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky.

“So, in this impeachment hearing today where we impeach presidents for treason or bribery or other high crimes, where is the impeachable offense in that call?” asked Rep. Ratcliffe of Taylor and Kent.

“Are either of you here today to assert there was an impeachable offense in that call?” added Ratcliffe.

The representative spoke to Taylor and Kent during the House Intelligence Committee’s inaugural public hearing of the impeachment inquiry into President Trump on Wednesday.

Both bureaucrats responded by saying nothing, creating a moment of deafening silence in the room. watch

  1. Republicans were (finally) on their A Game.
    Ratcliffe was great, and it was brilliant to move Jordan to this Committee.

    Trump’s next release of the first call will deflate impeachment faster than Hutchinson deflated that Baby Trump Balloon*…if not the call, then the Reports released.

    * I hope Trump “adopts” the balloon and puts a big one on the Ellipse after his re-election. **TRIGGERED!**

  2. Breitbart commenter jordanminn said it best:

    “Caveman Green said they had to impeach…………

    or President Trump would get re-elected…….

    there is your impeachable offense………”

    according to the corrupt Dems.

  3. The impeachable offense is “Trump’s re-election in 2020” and how that must be prevented at all cost.

    This whole scenario proves the bias and utter depravity of the left and the deep state.

    It’s like watching a bad Andy Kaufman skit with Adam Schiff as you guessed it, Andy Kaufman.

  4. But Schiff ain’t no Judge Wapner.. keep expecting Raymond Babbitt to pop-up and talk about K-Mart and white underwear…

    Andy did do a great Elvis and mighty mouse but was a bad wrestler!

  5. Why in the world hasn’t SOMEONE, ANYONE, just jumped to their feet, raise a fist at that bug-eyed little worm and yelled, “STOP IT! JUST STOP!! EVERYONE OUTSIDE YOUR LITTLE CABAL KNOWS THIS IS JUST PLAIN BULLSH*T! HELL, YOU KNOW IT’S BULLSH*T! AND YOU’VE JUST SHOWN ALL OF AMERICA AND THE WORLD THAT YOU AND YOUR RIDICULOUS PARTY ARE WILLING TO SINK THIS COUNTRY AND THIS GOVERNMENT IN ORDER TO REGAIN THE WHITE HOUSE IN 2020!”

  6. The reason the GOP is finally playing their A game is because they know that if the Dems succeed, no Republican President will ever serve a full term again.

    As has been pointed out, Dems have sought impeachment against six of the last seven Republican Presidents.
