A new report states that Congressman Adam Schiff attempted to strong-arm former United States special representative to Ukraine, Kurt Volker, to testify that President Trump withheld military funding to force the Ukrainian government to open an investigation into Hunter Biden. According to the Washington Examiner, Volker denied these accusations in a secret interview on October 3. This led Congressman Schiff to tell Mr. Volker, “Ambassador, you’re making this much more complicated than it has to be.”


If President Trump had used this same language in the call with the Ukrainian President, the media and Democrats would be citing it as evidence of a quid pro quo. Also, if President Trump told Mr. Volker “you’re making this much more complicated than it has to be,” trying to persuade Mr. Volker to agree with President Trump’s account of the Ukrainian, it would be reported and seen by Democrats as obstruction.

Mr. Volker’s testimony and account of the Ukrainian call ripped apart the Democrats’ and Congressman Schiff’s entire impeachment narrative. Schiff repeatedly tried to have Mr. Volker say that military-aide was being held to get political dirt on a possible political opponent of President Trump.

“‘[The Ukrainians] didn’t want to be drawn into investigating a Democratic candidate for president, which would mean only peril for Ukraine, is that fair to say?’ Schiff asked Volker.

‘That may be true,’ Volker said. ‘That may be true. They didn’t express that to me, and, of course, I didn’t know that was the context at the time.’ (Volker has said he did not know that Trump had mentioned the Biden’s on the July 25 call with Zelensky until the rough transcript of the call was released on Sept. 25.)

‘Part of the other context is vital military support is being withheld from the Ukraine during this period, right?’ Schiff asked.

‘That was not part of the context at the time,’ Volker said. ‘At least to my knowledge, they [Ukrainian leaders] were not aware of that.’

Schiff began to push the quid pro quo allegation. He asked Volker whether he would agree that ‘no president of the United States should ever ask a foreign leader to help intervene in a U.S. election.’

‘I agree with that,’ said Volker.

‘And that would be particularly egregious if it was done in the context of withholding foreign assistance?’ Schiff continued.

Volker balked. ‘We’re getting now into, you know, a conflation of these things that I didn’t think was actually there.’” – The Washington Examiner

What Congressman Schiff does not want to admit is the thing that is “making this much more complicated than it has to be” are the facts of the case. Congressman Schiff obviously believes his “parody” account of President Trump’s call actually occurred. He truly believes that President Trump acts and talks like a mob boss. The real irony of this is that if someone were to write a “parody” script of Congressman Schiff’s interactions with Mr. Volker, as well as his conversations with the whistleblowers that he lied about, that parody script would make Congressman Schiff the mob boss, not President Trump.

  • TheRowan says:

    The only quid pro quo was VP Biden’s threat to withhold the 1billion dollar aid to the Ukrainians if they didn’t fire the prosecutor looking into Burisma. Point of fact, President Obama knew of and gave the okay for Hunter Biden position on Burisma.There are plenty of airings of Joe Biden crowing about his strong arm, quid pro quo tactics. The Ukraine opened an investigation in 2018 themselves, into Burisma and the 2016 election interference which had some beginning in that country. We have legal agreements with different countries, which was enacted under President Clinton, to work with them on these types of criminal investigations. The aid Adam Schiff is talking about was stalled in the Congress at the time of the July call, neither the President nor Zelinski knew this. Congress finally agreed on, authorized the funds, and they were sent to the Ukraine in September 2018….Adam Schiff is a reprehensible liar who has been touting and spewing lie after lie for three+ years . It’s time for Congressional ramifications to his abuse of his office.
