By Townhall. During the first public impeachment inquiry hearing on Capitol Hill Wednesday morning, House Intelligence Committee Ranking Member Devin Nunes did not hold anything back and slammed Democrats for damaging the country. He also went after the media and again called on Hunter Biden to testify about allegations of corruption in Ukraine.
“In a July open hearing of this committing following the publication of the Mueller report, the Democrats engaged in a last-ditch effort to convince the American people President Trump is a Russia agent. That hearing was the pitiful finally of a three-year-long effort by the Democrats, the corrupt media, and partisan bureaucrats to overturn the results of the 2016 election. After the spectacular implosion of their Russia hoax on July 24…on July 25th, they turned on a dime and now claim the real malfeasance is the Republicans dealings with Ukraine,” Nunes said.

It Looks Like the Star Witnesses in Trump-Ukraine Impeachment Effort Just Torched the Democrats’ Narrative
By Townhall. Rep. Adam Schiff (D-CA) is the starting quarterback for the Democrats’ impeachment effort. The Left has taken the Trump-Ukraine story hook, line, and sinker. It’s even shoddier than the Russian collusion myth. A whistleblower alleged that Trump had shaken down the Ukrainian political leadership to investigate Hunter Biden’s board position on a Ukrainian energy company or risk having military aid withheld. The so-called whistleblower did not listen in on the call, it’s all based on secondhand information, and Ukraine did get the aid. This wasn’t even brought up during the call per the transcript released by the Trump White House. Also, during testimony today in front of the House Intelligence Committee from State Department officials Bill Taylor and George Kent, there really wasn’t any quid pro quo.
Truly remarkable. Rep. Mike Turner, a moderate and defense/foreign policy guru, is telling both witnesses that their testimony is hearsay and wouldn't be allowed in a court of law.
Guys, Rs are NOT going to vote for impeachment…

This is so key:
The entire premise of this impeachment sham is that President Trump was "twisting the arm" of President Zelensky (over aid they didn't know was held up)
Taylor held THREE meetings with Zelensky, NOT ONCE were Biden or Burisma brought uppic.twitter.com/EZ8KQ8HKoL

.@Jim_Jordan: You didn’t listen in on President Trump & Zelensky’s call?
Taylor: I did not.
Jordan: You’ve never talked with Chief of Staff Mulvaney?
Taylor: I never did.
Jordan: You’ve never met the President?
Taylor: That’s correct.
Jordan: And you’re their star witness. pic.twitter.com/ebZ6jsEjeB

Both of the Democrats’ star witnesses in the #ImpeachmentHearings just confirmed that they were not on the call…

To summarize what's happened:
Bill Taylor, the Democrats star witness, has basically admitted today that he got virtually all of his hearsay info from Gordon Sondland
We have Sondland, in writing, admitting he really didn't know what happened with Ukrainian aid
This is a farce

🚨HOLY, WOW 🚨
Rep. Adam Schiff is blocking/interrupting GOP questions while telling witnesses how to answer.
GOP asks about Ukraine trying to help Hillary win election.
Schiff jumps in and tells witnesses they don't have to answer GOP questions.
This is a third-world coup! pic.twitter.com/Hklsrph2Cw
