If your not FOR TREASON you’re AGAINST TRUMP.

It is a little bit more logical than most of their arguments.

Amazing how quickly Sen. Johnson put this together in response to the request from Nunes and Jordan.

Yep.

It’s amazing that Johnson might be tempted to do anything quickly, guy can’t even tie his own shoelaces. Might fall down …go boom!

This exchange could have taken place in a phone call so it’s interesting the degree of formality these three stooges are trying to evoke.

Johnson wrote that he was “surprised” during the meeting when Vindman said that the NSC’s position was that America’s relationship with Ukraine ought to be kept separate from the U.S.’ geopolitical competition with Russia.

In the letter, Johnson cast doubt over whether Vindman’s assertion was in line with Trump’s stance on U.S.-Ukraine relations.

Well Senator what is the Republican’s stance on bribery?

Can anyone imagine what a man of Vindman’s reputation and character, after decades of service to country, must think when he reads things like this?

Johnson has sold his soul to Trump. What a fool? He doesn’t understand that sooner or later Trump underbusses everyone he encounters.

We all knew as soon as the letter went out that this was a setup to get specious “evidence” from Johnson that Nunes and Jordan could use in the impeachment hearings. The only question was who they were going to smear.

Really, guys, try to be a little less obvious.

Vindman will testify publicly on Tuesday.

Even if he was “biased” against Donald Trump, so what? Please point me to any inaccuracies or inconsistencies in Vindman’s testimony.

Of course, what Vindman was biased against was corruption. Johnson forgets to point out Vindman was serving the best interests of America over the corrupt personal interests of Trump. And he was exactly right to do so.

The President has broad authority in conducting foreign policy, but it must be in the best interests of the country, and not his own interests. Trump has repeatedly failed this test.

Okay. I get it. People pay attention to the word vomit that pours forth from this goober’s gob because he’s a United States senator. But –my dog– it is always worthy to report?

So Johnson has no first hand information about Vindman, just second hand speculation. Got it. Sounds solid.

Up next, an influential senator who says views of witnesses who say Trump did bad things may be biased by the perception that Trump did bad things.
