If you read our posts regularly, you know that I believe what Democrats are trying to hang Trump out over is something I believe happens in Washington all the time.
When politicians speak with other politicians, they are always trading information and “favors.”
The conversation that President Trump had with Ukraine’s president has probably taken place dozens of times during every administration.
What Trump did, asking for a follow up on possible corruption, is not a scandal, period.
However, going by the standard set by Democrats, asking for help from foreign agents is an impeachable offense in any way, shape, or form.
Whether those “agents” are legitimate or not is irrelevant, something you need to keep in mind as you continue reading on.
The Comedian Sting
Russia has its own version of Howard Stern in the form of Vladimir Kuznetsov and Alexei Stolyarov.
The two Russian comedians decided to prank Rep. Adam Schiff (D-CA) with some dirt on Trump.
When Schiff was called, he was told he was talking to Andriy Parubiy, who is the former Speaker of the Ukraine Parliament.
When the comedians, posing as Parubiy, told Schiff they had damaging information, including recordings of Trump in compromising situations, Schiff stated, “So, you have recordings of both [Russian journalist Ksenia] Sobchak and [Russian model and singer Olga] Buzova where they’re discussing the compromising material on Mr. Trump?”
When that was confirmed by the prankster, Schiff responded, “Well obviously we would welcome a chance to get copies of those recordings.”

With Schiff shredding Trump in the media over the whistleblower complaint, Rep. Matt Gaetz (R-FLA) decided to call Schiff out on his hypocrisy…

When Schiff was asked about the embarrassing call, his spokesperson stated, “Before agreeing to take the call, and immediately following it, the committee informed appropriate law enforcement and security personnel of the conversation, and of our belief that it was probably bogus.”
Or course, we have no way of knowing if that is true or not. I do, however, find it hard to believe a member of Congress would spend 10 minutes on a call that he believed to be a prank.
It would appear, on the surface at least, that Schiff got caught with his hands in the cookie jar and is now trying to save face.
