The Democrats just keep getting themselves in deeper and deeper. One of their star witnesses, Alexander Vindham, testified this week before the Democratic Inquisition, and he was questioned by Representative John Ratcliffe, who more or less tore him to pieces. After getting Vindham to admit that nothing Trump did was illegal, he also got him to walk back the word “demand” in Trump’s conversation with Ukrainian President Zelensky.
He also pointed out that Vindham did not believe Trump’s policies were right and basically told the Ukrainians to ignore him. Vindham tried to rephrase it so that he advised the Ukrainians to stay out of politics simply because the target of the probe was Joe Biden and his son.
Ratcliffe asked Vindham if there were any words in his previous testimony he would like to change. When Vindham said no, Ratcliffe went to work on him. Under Barack Obama, the United States signed an agreement with Ukraine that each would aid the other in criminal investigations. So, asking for help from them was well within the law.
Ratcliff challenges Vindham to find in the President’s transcript of the call where the President ‘demanded’ anything from the Ukrainian President –
Vindham could not name anywhere in the transcript where the President demanded anything and that it was all what Vindham perceived and not based on the law or others’ interpretations of the meeting. Vindham had concerns about the President’s policy (who is he?) –
Congressman Ratcliff next destroyed the witness Vindham pointing out how Vindham told Ukrainian officials (not detailed in the discussion) to ignore President Trump – a blatant crime committed by the underling –
