A journalist assures that the public hearings against President Donald Trump, for allegedly pressuring his Ukrainian counterpart, will turn into a “group therapy” in which witnesses will tell “how they feel.”
In the Fox News program “The Five,” Greg Gutfeld predicted that the public hearings of the House Intelligence Committee that started Wednesday morning, Nov. 13, will revolve around the emotions of witnesses rather than on proven facts.
“So, the Democrats … are going to do their best to draw out the emotion—by using questions like ‘Did you feel threatened?’ ‘How did it make you feel?'” predicted Gutfeld.
Gutfield said in a humorous tone that the questions to the witnesses will be like those of a psychiatrist in group therapy: “‘How mean was your daddy,’ and Trump being the daddy.”
Gutfeld added that this process will unlikely resemble what happened with the Senate committee that reviewed the nomination of Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh last fall, as radio host Rush Limbaugh has suggested.
“I don’t think this is going to be like Kavanaugh at all,” Gutfeld said. “It’s not going to be that interesting because it’s about a phone call, it’s about a president doing his job, and it’s about opinions about whether it was appropriate or inappropriate. It’s about opinions.”
The public hearings began Wednesday, Nov. 13, with testimony from Deputy Assistant Secretary of State for European and Eurasian Affairs George Kent and acting U.S. Ambassador to Ukraine Bill Taylor.
Later this week, former U.S. ambassador to Ukraine Marie Yovanovitch will appear, who was accused by Ukraine’s Prosecutor General Yuri Lutsenko of giving him a list of individuals, group or organizations he should not investigate as soon as he was appointed prosecutor general in 2016.
Former Prosecutor General Viktor Shokin was fired in March 2016 as a result of pressure from then-Vice President Joe Biden while Shokin was investigating the company where Biden’s son worked.
All this happened in the middle of the 2016 presidential race and the main organization that was “protected” by this list issued by the Obama administration belonged to the NGO conglomerate of speculator George Soros, ACAC (Anti-Corruption Action Center), according to an interview that Lutsenko had with The Hill.
