You may suspect that we are referring to the Impeachment Inquiry, which may be over or maybe just between rounds; its future is somewhat indefinite. Here’s a brief summation of what has transpired up to this point.
One side, led by Chairman Adam Schiff, has used his opening statement, the carefully drafted statements of his witnesses, the highlights thereof that may be construed as damaging to President Trump skillfully and selectively leaked prior to the event, and the first 45 minutes of so of questioning by the Majority (that is, Schiffian) counsel, to delicately craft what is supposed to be a fatal and unassailable case against the President – you know, when all of the pundits on the mainstream media, etc. thoughtfully stroke their chins and shake their heads and mutter laments of how horrible and unprecedented is the behavior of the President. And then, the other side (led by Ranking Member Devin Nunes) gets its chance to question the Schiffian witnesses, for the Republicans are not allowed to call witnesses of their own; and yet in five-minute bites, with simple, direct questions, they demolish the construction that the Shiffians have spent hours, perhaps years, creating.
Think not? Well, let’s look at some simple, direct answers from the Schiffian witnesses and the point should be apparent.
