George Papadopoulos, former campaign advisor to President Donald Trump, who was a key figure in the investigation into the president’s false collusion with Russia, spoke out against the witnesses who came to the Capitol for the impeachment trial of the so-called Ukraine Case.
For Papadopoulos in the first session of the public hearing, what happened was an assault on the Constitution in which two “unelected bureaucrats with an axe to grind” were pitted against President Trump, according to Fox News’s “Fox and Friends.”
Witnesses on this occasion included William Taylor, acting U.S. ambassador to Ukraine, and George Kent, deputy assistant secretary for European and Eurasian Affairs.
Witnesses also acknowledged that they did not listen to the president’s July 25 phone call, for which he is being charged, and that they can only speak of secondhand, thirdhand, or fourthhand testimony.
Papadopoulos went on to say that for him the whole setup is nothing but a great distraction, and that the focus of attention should be on Inspector General Michael Horowitz’s and U.S. Attorney General John Durham’s reports for the Connecticut District, which should be turned over to U.S. Attorney General William Barr, on corruption at the highest levels of the FBI and the Department of Justice.
It seems to have information that involves even more on former Democrat Vice President Joe Biden, among others, as can be seen from one of his tweets.
“The Democrats have opened Pandora’s box. Once the sham is over, we will have a clear understanding of the nature of Biden’s abuse of power in Ukraine, which echoed Nixon’s use of the instruments of federal government to discredit his enemies, not the other way around!” Papadopoulos wrote.
In his book “Deep State Target,” Papadopoulos describes the U.S. intelligence services and their allies as those who set out to destroy Donald Trump’s presidency before it began.
The Ukraine Case is a controversial disqualification process for U.S. President Donald Trump, saying he would not have called on the Ukrainian president to ask him for an alleged “favor” to investigate former Vice President Joe Biden, who is his political rival in the 2020 elections.
Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskiy, however, has said he felt no pressure during the call, according to Fox News.
The White House has emphatically denied the accusations made against the president and, in fact, has published transcripts of the talks between President Donald Trump and Zelensky.
The conversation shows that Trump did not pressure or offer any kind of economic retribution to Ukraine to investigate the son of Joe Biden, who was involved in a mega-case of corruption of the main gas company of the European country.
