The Democratic-led effort, which many have called a coup to remove the president from office, continues to unravel as Obama-appointed Ukraine ambassador has allegedly lied under oath, a congressman suggests.
Ukrainian ambassador may have lied under oath
U.S. Ambassador to Ukraine Marie Yovanovitch, who was appointed by former President Barack Obama, allegedly made false statements under oath during her October 11 closed-door testimony in the impeachment inquiry being conducted by House Democrats, according to the latest report.
Tucker Carlson of Fox revealed the information he uncovered on his show. “This show has obtained exclusively an email for that Democratic staffer for the House Foreign Affairs Committee sent by private email to the former American ambassador Marie Yovanovitch,” Carlson said.
“Yovanovitch, you know, is a key player in the Democrats’ impeachment probe and was recalled from her post in Ukraine by President Trump in May 2019 following allegations of serious partisanship and political bias.”
“That email was sent on August 14, that was two days after the whistleblower complaint was filed and a month before that complaint became public,” Carlson added. “The whistleblower, however, went to Adam Schiff’s team before filing the complaint.”
The email in question, which was obtained by Carlson, read:
“I’m writing to see if you would have time to meet up for a chat — in particular, I’m hoping to discuss some Ukraine-related oversight questions we are exploring. I’d appreciate the change to ground-truth a few pieces of information with you, some of which are quite delicate/time-sensitive and, thus, we want to make sure we get them right.”
Carlson said that Rep. Lee Zeldin (R-NY) had asked Marie Yovanovitch about the email during her testimony. Allegedly, Yovanovitch stated that she never responded to the email.
“In fact, it turns out that she did respond,” Carlson pointed out. “She said she ‘looked forward to chatting with [the Democratic staffer].” He continued, “As Congressmen Zeldin pointed out, the ambassador’s original answer, which was dishonest, was given under oath,” Carlson added.
On Twitter, Rep. Zeldin confirmed what Carlson said in his segment. “It appears Ambassador Yovanovitch did not accurately answer this question I asked her during her ‘impeachment inquiry’ deposition under oath,” Zeldin tweeted.
Jeff Sessions announces run for Senate, goes Pro-Trump in new ad
Former US Attorney General Jeff Sessions announced that he will make a run for his old Senate seat in Alabama. Despite resigning from the Justice Department amid public attacks from Trump and a falling out, Sessions, in his first campaign ad, said the president “has my strong support.”
“When I left President Trump’s Cabinet, did I write a tell-all book?” Sessions asked in the ad. “No. Did I go on CNN and attack the president? Nope. Have I said a cross word about our president? Not one time.”
Sessions continued: “I’ll tell you why: First, that would be dishonorable. I was there to serve his agenda, not mine. Second, the president is doing a great job for America and Alabama, and he has my strong support.”
Former NY Mayor Bloomberg Prepares Presidential Bid
Former three-term New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg is preparing for a run at the presidency in 2020, according to numerous sources, and is expected to file paperwork designating himself as a candidate next week. He has been collecting signatures in Alabama in preparation to designate himself as a candidate in Alabama’s Democratic presidential primary.
Even though Bloomberg announced earlier this year he would not seek the party’s nomination, he now allegedly believes the Democrats have not fielded a candidate that is strong enough to defeat President Donald Trump in 2020.
One thing is certain, however – the massive wealth possessed by Bloomberg means he would not have to be concerned about fundraising challenges. In fact, in 2018, Bloomberg spent over $100 million to help ensure Democrats would take the House. The Democratic victory that put them in control of both houses of the Virginia legislature was Bloomberg-backed.
Reportedly, should Bloomberg enter the race, his main targets will be progressive and Democratic-socialist front-runners senators Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) and Bernie Sanders (I-VT).
The wealthy are in the crosshairs of both senators who have already announced they will target the wealthy as underwriters for bankrolling many of their socialist-leaning programs such as healthcare, education and climate change.
