Today is a busy day. We had the FISA report from the Department of Justice Inspector General Michael Horowitz drop. We have yet another impeachment hearing before the House Judiciary Committee, where the lawyers for the Democrats and Republicans offer their summaries of this long, sad saga on the Hill. It's still going on as we speak.
We’re neck-deep in this craziness because a reported CIA agent, who is also a Democrat and had worked with a 2020 candidate, filed a whistleblower report over a July phone call President Trump had with the Ukrainians. Trump supposedly shook down the Ukrainians, threatening to withhold aid unless they open a corruption investigation into Hunter Biden. The 2020 election was not mentioned. Aid was not withheld. There is no quid pro quo, but here we are; Democrats trying to impeach the president over an allegation that’s even more shoddy and weak than the Russian collusion myth. And this same whistleblower contacted Rep. Adam Schiff’s (D-CA) staff prior to filing the complaint; Schiff knew the contents beforehand. Schiff is the starting QB for this impeachment effort and you can bet he didn’t let this opportunity to weaponize this report to get the ball rolling on the Democrats’ impeachment fetish. Oh, and let’s not forget that this whole thing started in the secretive basement of House Democrats.
It’s a clown show, and Rep. Matt Gaetz (R-FL) has had enough. At the start of this hearing, Gaetz ripped into Rep. Jerry Nadler (D-NY), chair of the committee, and his Democratic colleagues, noting that this whole day is predicated on biased anti-Trump lawyers who will give summaries of this investigation, but we all know what they will conclude.
“You're going to try to overturn the results of an election with unelected people giving testimony,” he barked.

Later, when there was a vote for a recess, Gaetz knew what was up.
“This is so they can have a press conference before Mr. Castor gets the chance to offer a rebuttal,” he said. Stephen Castor is the GOP counsel.
It’s about time someone turned into a junkyard dog over this quasi-coup attempt by House Democrats.
