Another day, another cache of developments in the Trump-Ukraine whistleblower scandal.
Congressional Representatives Forcing the True Ukrainian Narrative into the Open
After the mishandled October 3, 2019, testimony of Kurt Volker, the State Department now refuses to allow Ambassador Sondland to testify, which triggered more faux outrage from House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff (D-CA). The video clip below begins with comments from Chairman Schiff, but then congressmen Jim Jordan (R-OH), Mark Meadows (R-NC), Matt Gaetz (R-FL), Lee Zeldin (R-NY), and Scott Perry (R-PA) show their utter disgust for the sham impeachment process and the political agenda of the Democratic leadership, specifically pointing out the deficiencies of Chairman Schiff’s mishandling of witnesses.
President Trump Refuses to Cooperate with “Impeachment Inquiry”
Pat Cipollone, Counsel to the President, sent a letter October 8, 2019, addressed to Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) and committee chairs Adam Schiff (D-CA – Intelligence), Eliot Engel (D-NY – Foreign Affairs), and Elijah Cummings (D-MD – Oversight) laying out the three reasons why President Trump and his administration cannot participate in the “partisan and unconstitutional” impeachment inquiry.
- Your “Inquiry” Is Constitutionally Invalid and Violates Basic Due Process Rights and Separation of Powers
- The Invalid “Impeachment Inquiry” Plainly Seeks To Reverse the Election of 2016 and To Influence the Election of 2020
- There Is No Legitimate Basis for Your “Impeachment Inquiry”; Instead, the Committees’ Actions Raise Serious Questions
Counsel Cipollone didn’t mince words as he used Congressman Al Green’s May 5, 2019, MSNBC interview to reinforce his points.
Put simply, you seek to overturn the results of the 2016 election and deprive the American people of the President they have freely chosen. Many Democrats now apparently view impeachment not only as a means to undo the democratic results of the last election, but as a strategy to influence the next election, which is barely more than a year away. As one member of Congress explained, he is “concerned that if we don’t impeach the President, he will get reelected.” (p. 1)
AG Bill Barr and US Attorney John Durham Expand Their Investigation
According to Fox News:
John Durham, the U.S. attorney reviewing the origins of the 2016 counterintelligence investigation into Russia and the Trump campaign, is probing a wider timeline than previously known, according to multiple senior administration officials.
Fox News previously reported that Durham would be reviewing the days leading up to the 2016 election and through the inauguration.
However, based on what he has been finding, Durham has expanded his investigation adding agents and resources, the senior administration officials said. The timeline has grown from the beginning of the probe through the election and now has included a post-election timeline through the spring of 2017, up to when Robert Mueller was named special counsel.
Then, there’s the video below from Fox News titled “Chaffetz: Durham expanding Russia probe is bad news for Brennan, Clapper.”
Glenn Beck Connects the Russia-Ukraine Dots with Explosive Unearthed Content
The video below is very long, but the content is a must-see for anyone trying to understand how the current Trump-Ukraine fiasco connects to the original Trump-Russia hoax. The two are inseparable. Pay special attention to the revelation presented, beginning at the 1:13:50 mark, of an audio recording portraying (potential) Ukraine-Clinton collusion.

Deep State Actors Beginning to Seek Cover
In a recent CNN appearance with Jim Sciutto, former DNI James Clapper seems to be desperate, stuttering slightly as he claims he was simply following the orders of his Commander in Chief.
Jim Scuitto: Are you concerned that Barr’s or Durham’s investigation will find wrongdoing and seek to punish former intelligence officials?
James Clapper: Well, I don’t (huff) I don’t know. I, I, uh, I don’t, I don’t think there was any wrongdoing. … I know for my part, my main concern was, was the Russians and the threat posed by the Russians, uh, to our, our very political fabric. … It’s kinda disconcerting now to be investigated for having done our duty and done what we were told to do by the President.
Watch the clip again (or here, if the video is removed from YouTube). Without being a body language expert, the visible impact upon James Clapper when Jim Sciutto mentions John Durham’s investigation is obvious. At the 0:30 mark, Mr. Clapper leans back in his chair as if trying to avoid a blow. His speech further indicates he is shaken by the investigation.
When the “Deep State” begins to run for cover, it’s a pretty safe bet that someone is getting ready to stomp the swamp.
