Ratcliffe: No witness has used the word bribery


IMPEACHABLE OFFENSE OF BRIBERY EVIDENCED IN HIS JULY 25th CALL TRANSCRIPT WITH PRESIDENT ZELENSKY. MULTIPLE DEMOCRATIC MEMBERS OF THIS COMMITTEE GAVE TV AND RADIO INTERVIEWS OVER THE PAST WEEK DISCUSSING HOW THE PRESIDENT’S CONDUCT SUPPORTED HIS IMPEACHMENT FOR COMMITTING BRIBERY. ALL OF WHICH STRUCK ME AS VERY ODD BECAUSE FOR THE LONGEST TIME THIS WAS ALL ABOUT QUID PRO QUO ACCORDING TO THE WHISTLEBLOWER COMPLAINT. BUT AFTER WITNESS AFTER WITNESS BEGAN SAYING THERE WAS NO QUIT PRO KUO OR EVEN THAT QUID PRO QUO WAS NOT EVEN POSSIBLE, WE SAW A SHIFT FROM THE DEMOCRATS. THEY BRIEFLY STARTED TO REFER TO THE PRESIDENT’S CONDUCT ON THE JULY 25th CALL AS EXTORTION. AND NOW IT’S SHIFTED AGAIN LAST WEEK TO BRIBERY. MS. WILLIAMS, YOU USED THE WORD UNUSUAL TO DESCRIBE THE PRESIDENT’S CALL LAST — ON JULY 25th. LIEUTENANT COLONEL VINDMAN, YOU USED THE WORD INAPPROPRIATE AND IMPROPER. I’VE WORD SEARCHED EACH OF YOUR TRANSCRIPTS AND THE WORD BRIBERY OR BRIBE DOESN’T APPEAR ANYWHERE IN THAT. MS. WILLIAMS, YOU HAVE NEVER USED THE WORD BRIBERY OR BRIBE TO EXPLAIN PRESIDENT TRUMP’S CONDUCT, CORRECT?>>NO, SIR.>>COLONEL VINDMAN, YOU HAVEN’T EITHER.>>THAT IS CORRECT.>>THE PROBLEM IS, IN AN IMPEACHMENT INQUIRY THAT THE SPEAKER OF THE HOUSE SAYS IS ALL ABOUT BRIBERY, WHERE BRIBERY IS THE IMPEACHABLE OFFENSE, NO WITNESS HAS USED THE WORD BRIBERY TO DESCRIBE PRESIDENT TRUMP’S CONDUCT. NONE OF THEM. THESE ARE ALL OF THE DEPOSITION TRANSCRIPTS, THESE ARE JUST THE 10 THAT HAVE BEEN RELEASED. SIX WEEKS OF WITNESS INTERVIEWS IN THIS IMPEACHMENT INQUIRY, HUNDREDS OF HOURS OF TESTIMONY, THOUSANDS OF QUESTIONS ASKED, THOUSANDS OF ANSWERS GIVEN, THE NUMBER OF TIMES THAT WITNESSES HAVE BEEN ASKED ANY QUESTION ABOUT WHETHER OR NOT PRESIDENT TRUMP’S CONDUCT CONSTITUTED BRIBERY BEFORE AMBASSADOR YOVANOVITCH WAS ASKED BY MY COLLEAGUE CONGRESSMAN STEWART LAST THURSDAY IS ZERO. THE NUMBER OF TIMES WITNESSES HAVE USED THE WORD BRIBERY OR BRIBE TO DESCRIBE PRESIDENT TRUMP’S CONDUCT IN THE LAST SIX WEEKS OF THIS INQUIRY IS ZERO. IN FACT, IN THESE 3500 PAGES OF SWORN DEPOSITION TESTIMONY IN JUST THESE 10 TRANSCRIPTS RELEASED THUS FAR THE WORD BRIBERY APPEARS IN THESE 3500 PAGES EXACTLY ONE TIME AND IRONICALLY IT APPEARS NOT IN A DESCRIPTION OF PRESIDENT TRUMP’S ALLEGED CONDUCT. IT APPEARS IN THE DESCRIPTION OF VICE PRESIDENT BIDEN’S ALLEGED CONDUCT. MY COLLEAGUES WILL SAY WE NEED TO VOTE ON THE EVIDENCE ON THE IMPEACHMENT OF THE PRESIDENT FOR BRIBERY AND THEY’LL SEND A REPORT TO THE JUDICIARY COMMITTEE. BECAUSE THERE ARE MORE DEMOCRATS THAN REPUBLICANS IT WILL LIKELY PASS. AND WHEN THAT HAPPENS, THE AMERICAN PEOPLE NEED TO BE CLEAR THAT WHEN THE DEMOCRATS, WHAT THEY’RE DESCRIBING AS BRIBERY, NOT A SINGLE WITNESS IS DESCRIBING AS BRIBERY. WE’VE HEARD MANY TIMES IN THE COURSE OF THIS PROCEEDING THAT THE FACTS OF THE PRESIDENT ARE NOT IN DISPUTE BUT THE AMERICAN PEOPLE ARE ASKING IF THE FACTS ARE THE SAME, WHY DO THE CRIMES THAT THE PRESIDENT IS BEING ACCUSED OF KEEP CHANGING? WHY DO WE GO FROM QUID PRO QUO, TO EXTORTION, NOW TO BRIBERY? CHAIRMAN NUNES TOLD YOU THE ANSWER. THE ANSWER IS POLLING. WASHINGTON TIMES ASKED AMERICANS WHAT WOULD BE THE MOST DAMNING ACCUSATION. IT CAME BACK BRIBERY. THIS CASE IS ALL ABOUT BRIBERY. IT’S BAD ENOUGH THAT THE DEMOCRATS TO DEFEND YOURSELF WITHOUT YOUR LAWYERS PRESENT BUT WHAT’S EVEN WORSE IS TRYING TO DEFEND YOURSELF AGAINST AN ACCUSATION THAT KEEPS CHANGING IN THE MIDDLE OF THE PROCEEDING. IF DEMOCRATS ACCUSED THE PRESIDENT OF HIGH CRIME OR IMPEACHABLE OFFENSE HE OUGHT TO KNOW WHICH ONE IT IS. WHEN SPEAKER PELOSI SAYS IT’S ALL ABOUT BRIBERY SHE PROMISED OF EVIDENCE OF BRIBERY THAT WOULD BE COMPELLING AND OVERWHELMING AND INSTEAD IT’S INVISIBLE. I YIELD BACK.>>MR. CHAIRMAN, I’D LIKE TO JOIN EVERYONE IN THINKING BOTH OF OUR WITNESSES FOR YOUR SERVICE. LIEUTENANT COLONEL VINDMAN, AS

  1. When there is NO contact then how is bribery?
    When there is NO whistleblower then how is bribery?

    👟👢 Adam Schiff
    👟👢Nancy Pelosi
    Pete asked if GOD Y'SHUA can strike me then let HIM strike. And I AM GOD and I do whatever you ask in MY NAME. I AM never reject your plea.
    Stricken on forehead💥

    Then Pete after stricken by GOD, said to himself "it's better to get stricken by Police and went to police for beating and got a very good lockup treatment". This treatment now continues till 2028year-end and full recycling, countless turn's.

  2. 95% of this crime spree in Ukraine is because the place is a George Soros / Fabian play ground. He uses his money to creat phony None Profit NGO Aggravators, they take money we send to help the country to advance NWO, and not Ukraine! They use kickbacks to pay off politicians in Washington to play stupid, turn heads as Soros donates heavy to DNC, Hydra, and Fabian Democratic party. Look at how rich Clinton's got, 45 million in one check, and now Obama, Biden, any one willing to be a traitor gets rich!

  3. No witness used the word bribery, extortion, or any other legal term because it isn't /wasn't their determination to make. They are witnesses, not investigators, not lawyers, not jurists, and not judges. If you see a dead person in a body of water, that is exactly what you witnessed, not a drowning, not a suicide, not a homicide; that is for someone else to determined. The same goes for any other crime, you may think/or believe what you saw/heard might be wrong, or that something bad happened, but it isn't up to you to decide the legal term. Even witnessing one man shoot another, or a person shoot a cop; it isn't your job to cry homicide, it may have been self-defence, or something else entirely. So when you write or give your statement, all you can say is exactly what you saw or heard, unless you were directly involved in the act yourself, then you may know the what, why, when, where, and how.

    So instead of deciding what happened before everything & everyone is heard, that includes (Trump, Giuliani, Barr, Pompeo, etc.) you do not know what the conclusion will be.

  4. If someone needs to use props to make a point, then you know he has a weak case. Note that none of President Trump's conducts is defended.

  5. there are lot of moment like this, anyone with healthy mentally mind set without serious bias attitude would already able to realize which is good side and which is bad.
    the sick and unhealthy mind, they would find ways to twisted and turn to convince themselves what they want to believe. thats why they will point there and use bit of here and there to reject Rep John all in 100% BOOM!
    plenty of example here… easy to pick out which has the dems mentally ill virus.
    ***this 'impeachment' hearing/inquiring is set for those dems mentally ill. every mentally stable and healthy people would get all the details straight from the main fact/evident/truth.. the exact conversation transcript. available for all. after reading who have the same OPINION with dems star witnesses, congrat, u can try to apply be their next star witness. or maybe watch all president Trump interviews, any negative opinions after watching, congrat.. go look for dems to be their witness.. thats all it takes to impeach a President. mean it will take nothing at all to have u lock up or add to Hillary's to do list.

  6. My aunt bribed my drug addict cousin. She told him he could stay at her house as long as he was clean and sober and did some basic chores while he got his act together. Trump told the Ukrainians, we will continue to give you aid, but you have to commit to addressing your corruption problems. There is no reason to give aid to a country that will allow oligarchs like the owner of Burisma to embezzle foreign aid money. Trump ran on not wasting US aid money on chump nations. New Ukraine President Zelensky ran on ending the worst corruption in Europe and possibly the world. Trump also demanded that Europe give more aid to their European ally, Ukraine.

  7. A person commits the crime of bribery by giving or offering a public official or public employee something of value in return for some official action (or in exchange for the public official not doing something he or she is legally obligated to do), benefitting the defendant.
    So yes Trump committed bribery.

  8. The dems continue to make a mockery of this country……blatently lie everytime they open thier mouths…..but nothing happens. Im done with republicans too….spineless and currupt….all of them. This country has become a joke.

  9. The witnesses are mostly career officials who seem to think they own policy. Anyone who breaks their paradigm cannot be tolerated ,, we are seeing the deep state at work,, this is a process owners complaint session. A joke,, and they should join the clockwise sucking motion generated by depressing The handle attached to a ceramic object.

  10. ALL MY DEMOCRAT NEIGHBORS HAVE TOLD ME THEY'RE CHANGING THEIR PARTY TO REPUBLICAN AND THE REASON IS BECAUSE THE DEMOCRAT PARTY IS SHAMING THEM WITH THEIR IDIOCY MY CLOSEST NEXT DOOR NEIGHBOR TOLD ME THAT HE HAS BEEN A DEMOCRAT ALL HIS LIFE AND THE PARTY HAS TURNED THEIR BACK ON THEIR OWN BASE THAT THEY'RE NO LONGER RECOGNIZED AS AN AMERICAN SUPPORTING ORGANIZATION THEY HAVE BECOME SOCIALIST…!!!

  11. Oh they got them…. I mean biden lol… Funny oboma taps phones than when biden son is embezzled millions and ots a crime to investigate? We give tjat country millions and billions and FLINT HAS LEAD WATER MY HAIR AND TEETH FALLING OUT. It makes me sick to see a american steal money.

  12. This is embarrassing. This is a slap in the face to every single tax payer. Wasted money and time. Democrats are unAmerican.

  13. Radcliffe: No witness has used the word supercalifragilisticexpialidocious. Trump is therefore innocent of all these made up truths.

  14. Nancy Pelosi is unfit to be Speaker of the House she needs to be removed the chaotic conversations that she has and most of them make no sense she's unfit she is mentally unfit mentally unstable to be the Speaker of the House as an American I approve to remove an impeached Nancy Pelosi as of yesterday

  15. All the dems who pushed for this should have to resign and foot the bill for this waste of time and money. Those tax payer dollars could of been used to, idk, repave my street that has had a foot deep pothole in the middle of it for months….

  16. Kudos to Rep. John Ratcliffe for destroying Nancy Pelosi's and Adam Schiff's justification for impeaching Pres. Trump. Great work, Congressman Ratcliffe. 👍💪😎

  17. Dems have done nothing for America but harass Trump, Trump has shown himself to be a tough leader and I will be voting for him in 2020.

  18. We have the transcript. So do we need to hear these peoples "opinion" if the law was broken? We have the transcript. . . Also, those that did not hear the call are not witnesses, they are rumor mongers and gossiping at best

  19. "I followed the directions of the President," said Sondland. Later, he added: "Everyone was in the loop. It was no secret. Everyone was informed via email on July 19, days before the Presidential call. As I communicated to the team, I told President Zelensky in advance that assurances to 'run a fully transparent investigation' and 'turn over every stone' were necessary in his call with President Trump."

  20. The President Donald Trump is “Guilty, guilty as Sin!”
    If there is Really a God(American Evangelical Actions, is full Proof that there is None/God), Donald Trump would be forever Rotissering in Hell.

  21. Are you ratings still low C.B.S???you whines about honest reporting..but you hardly do that..but very bias!!that is not what you supposed reporters took an oath huh??🤮💩🐍🙊

  22. Again trying to put the spin on things! Biden, Biden, this has nothing to do with him. Our country is being stained! Wake-up.

  23. [Feb 11 2019]
    "Step Four: Open 'new' Fake & False investigations as CHAIRMAN of the House Intel Comm to retain disinformation campaign designed to keep liberal/D Americans onboard to regain POWER & PREVENT prosecution – Executive Time!" – Q
    19 Nov 2019 There is no STEP FIVE. END Q

  24. Democrats know that if Trump is ever allowed to do his job, their crimes will be exposed and they'll all end up in jail, so they'll say and do anything, no matter how ridiculous it is to smear our President.

  25. In the Cowboy Movies there was a term used for an unfair trial, someone help me recall, was it "bushwhack or Lynchmob" please help educate me, there is something evil going on here, straight from the pit of HELL !

  26. Classic. Bringing in the visuals…A foot high of documents and the only one mention of bri ber y…is only mentioned in relation to Biden! Classic. Don't use emojis…They are shutting down accounts that do. Poor little pets can't take the heat. Awwwwhhh…

  27. I'd like to see how many of these Jackasses would be left if they had to pay back the American taxpayers from their own pockets and salaries for the waste if time and money we all are suffering from
    . A law requiring valid truthful accusations to carry on with an inquiry for impeachment must be passed to eliminate such a disgraceful attempt to ever occur again . And we the American people should demand that it be brought forth once Justice is served.

  28. Why isn't the President using the military to get a dual process in the impeachment hearings. I am sure no Americans in their sense will object it

  29. I'm not the sharpest tool in the shed but I'm smart enough to see that I'm a lot more intelligent than the a pack of wolves and their supporers who are displaying how ignorant and unintelligent they really are. Love not hate is the mark of a real citizen unfortunately the left can't see that. They would rather be miserable than happily enjoy life in the Greatest country in the world. How much more pleasant would this country be if everyone just believed in that truth?

  30. Let's start. I like the word, it fits better than qui pro quo and Trump and corruption have run synonymous 50 years before he ever became president

  31. Just because Joe Biden didn't think he was being bribed, certainly both Ukraine and China thought they were bribing Biden … Likewise, Hillary may not have thought all of her play-to-play income as bribery. But certainly that is what the people bribing her thought

  32. There is a big difference between asking to dig up dirt on your political opponent and investigating US citizen, who bragged on camera about leveraging tax payers money for personal gain. I think it is pretty obvious that the latter applies to Biden.

  33. This up and coming crop of Republican leaders – John Ratcliffe, Jim Jordan, Matt Gaetz, Elise Stefanik etc. are really impressive. Unlike feckless RINO LOSERS like Romney, they're bright and intelligent and not afraid to stand up to these Lunatics. We need dozens more like them to primary out never Trumpers. With Trump's re-election & both Houses of Congress under GOP control, filled with more leaders like these, just think of what we can get done.

  34. The Dems want to convict him for breathing. They could actually prove that because he is guilty of that. And being the best president we’ve ever had. Thank you President Trump

  35. This only proofs that the Reps have No (only weak) arguments to defend Individual-1.
    Hearing Ratcliffe argument means… from now on when you go to the police station to file a complaint/crime you have to use the Exact Crime Definition Word or the crime never happend!
    BTW Bribery = "quid pro quo" (And yes, that phrase does occur in multiple transcripts.)

  36. It will be obstruction next. Even though the Democrats have been obstructing the rights of the accused of DUE PROCESS FROM THE VERY BEGINNING!!

  37. Is fox still pretending the president of the US isn't a criminal? Lol. It must be manic in the back where everyone knows it, some just pretend they don't.

  38. I do wonder how anyone can defend this? He bribed for his own personal gain. It's not difficult peeps, keep up. Of course if you are criminally minded side with the Mafia. Sure, do that. One day you will stand before God. Good luck.

  39. Democrats running this sh!tshow must be a bunch of morons. You would figure they would at least pay off a few people to create evidence by lying. You dont come to a gun fight without ammo.

  40. It doesn't matter one bit what the House does. The Senate will crush their impeachment lunacy and President Trump will gain another 10 points in the polls.

  41. "Uh , uh , he colluded with Russia!"
    "No , Hillary did,"
    Well , he was corrupt in the Ukraine!, "
    " No , Joe Biden did, "
    "Then bribery!"
    "We got nothing , Nancy"
    "Quick , pull a rabbit out of our hat , we MUST impeach! "

    Democrats – egg on face since Jimmy Carter.. m

  42. all this is a big set up from the Democrats and the Liberals throw them all out of the country one way ticket hate to see him go by
