Rep. Ratcliffe: In 3,500 Pages of Testimony, ‘Bribery’ Appears Only Once – Referring to Biden’s Alleged Conduct

CNS: While Democrats are now accusing President Donald Trump of bribery, the thirty-five hundred pages of sworn deposition testimony released so far reveal only one mention of the word “bribery” – and it’s used to describe the alleged conduct of former Vice President Joe Biden, Rep. John Ratcliffe (R-Texas) said Tuesday.

During Tuesday’s House Intelligence Committee impeachment inquiry, Rep. Ratcliffe noted how Democrats’ charge against Trump has morphed, from “quid pro quo” to “extortion” to, currently, “bribery”:

“For the longest time, this was all about ‘quid pro quo,’ according to the whistleblower complaint. But, after witness after witness began saying that there was no quid pro quo, or even that quid pro quo was not even possible, we saw a shift from the Democrats. They briefly started to refer to the president’s conduct on the July 24th call as extortion. And, now, it’s shifted again last week, to bribery.”

Democrat witnesses Lt. Col. Alexander Vindman and Vice President Mike Pence’s aide, Jennifer Williams, testified to Rep. Ratcliffe that they have never used the term “bribery” or “bribe” in their previous testimony regarding Pres. Trump’s conduct.

Ratcliffe, then, produced the thirty-five hundred printed pages of testimony from the ten transcripts of the closed-door hearings that have been released, noting that they do not contain even a single reference to Pres. Trump committing bribery: MORE

  1. How much more proof do we need to prove this is a sham. Nasty Nancy comes out, utters the word, and the whole shitshow takes a turn.

  2. @ ecp

    How much more?

    We all get it but not the dims. They have to be marinated in the truth before they think about budging out of their conspiratorial mindset. And then only maybe.

    “How much more?

    We all get it but not the dims. They have to be marinated in the truth before they think about budging out of their conspiratorial mindset. And then only maybe.”

    …they are not capable of understanding the truth. They sold their souls long ago, and the Spirit has fled them, without which they cannot even perceive the truth.

    John wrote about them in his time. “Democrat” is just Satan’s CURRENT deceptive label for his diciples, he’s called them other things at other times, but like the poor, they have been with us always…

    “Ye are of your father the devil, and the lusts of your father ye will do. He was a murderer from the beginning, and abode not in the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he speaketh a lie, he speaketh of his own: for he is a liar, and the father of it.:
    John 8:44

    …Paul wrote of them, too, again at the Lord’s behest, see if hr doesn’t seem to be describing the people you see at the Schiffshow…

    “21 Because that, when they knew God, they glorified him not as God, neither were thankful; but became vain in their imaginations, and their foolish heart was darkened.

    22 Professing themselves to be wise, they became fools,

    23 And changed the glory of the uncorruptible God into an image made like to corruptible man, and to birds, and fourfooted beasts, and creeping things.

    24 Wherefore God also gave them up to uncleanness through the lusts of their own hearts, to dishonour their own bodies between themselves:

    25 Who changed the truth of God into a lie, and worshipped and served the creature more than the Creator, who is blessed for ever. Amen.

    26 For this cause God gave them up unto vile affections: for even their women did change the natural use into that which is against nature:

    27 And likewise also the men, leaving the natural use of the woman, burned in their lust one toward another; men with men working that which is unseemly, and receiving in themselves that recompence of their error which was meet.

    28 And even as they did not like to retain God in their knowledge, God gave them over to a reprobate mind, to do those things which are not convenient;

    29 Being filled with all unrighteousness, fornication, wickedness, covetousness, maliciousness; full of envy, murder, debate, deceit, malignity; whisperers,

    30 Backbiters, haters of God, despiteful, proud, boasters, inventors of evil things, disobedient to parents,

    31 Without understanding, covenantbreakers, without natural affection, implacable, unmerciful:

    32 Who knowing the judgment of God, that they which commit such things are worthy of death, not only do the same, but have pleasure in them that do them.”
    Romans 1:21-32

    …this describes, from 2000 years ago, not only who we SEE now, but what they are DOING now. Those that would replace God with Man have ALWAYS been a plauge upon Mankind, and it ALWAYS ends the same way.


    …the Romans utterly destroyed Jerusalem and the Temple not many years after this was written, because the people thought they knew better than God then.

    As Democrats do now.

    God withdrew his protection from them for their arrogance, making their destruction inevitable.

    Only the Western wall of the Temple (now the wailing wall) was left intact to shelter the tenth legion, and three towers the Jews had abandoned as a testament to the strength of the fortress that failed. Everywere else, no stone was left atop another.

    As Jesus said would happen.

    …the innocent, the pilgrims caught up in the violence while visiting for Passover, the ordinary citizen…these suffered FAR more than the evildoers, attacked by both sides if they tried to flee, tortured if they were fat because it was assumed they were hiding food, reduced even to the madness of cooking and eating their own baby in one case, all so their “leaders” could shake their fists in God’s face a bit longer.

    Like now.

    That’s the judgement God meted out to His city, and His people, for their arrogance.

    What do you suppose he’ll allow for US? Look at the slaughter of the innocents WE allow, the perversion, the filth, the State-sponsored mutilation of His handiwork in our very children in the name of the false god of political correctness, and the sacrifices made to appease the strange, fake god of Islam, where even His word is supressed lest it “offend”

    WE have more evil than Sodom EVER did, have even amplified it and enshrined it in our LAWS, forced it upon our communites, teach it as “just a choice” to our children, even as Democrat and Muslim pedophiles eye them greedily as the next logical step in the decent to madness.

    What have WE earned? What punishment is just for what WE, as a NATION, have given license to?

    …I’ll tell you this..

    …it ain’t gonna be pretty…

  4. The democrats are just using the word “bribery” as a dressing for their word salad.

    It’s a form of “this for that,’” of course – but it involves the illegal transaction of an official act in which an actual individual is to be or is the recipient of a bribe for doing something in their official capacity.

    If president Trump had offered the president of Ukraine something, say a million dollars, to him personally in order to do something that would be a bribe.

    ‘This for that” or quid pro quo, is the very definition of trade. Bribery, or personally enriching yourself by selling official acts, is not the definition of trade.

    Bribery has an actual legal definition and it requires an individual actually be a recipient of a bribe.
