Tucker Carlson broke some important news on his program tonight.
It pertains to a key player in the Democrats’ impeachment probe, the former Ambassador to Ukraine, Maria Yovanovitch, who was appointed by Barack Obama and recalled by President Donald Trump earlier this year when serious questions were raised about her political bias.
Carlson says they have an email written to Yovanovitch from a Democratic staffer on the House Foreign Affairs Committee sent by private email on August 14 asking to talk with her about “Ukraine related oversight questions we are exploring.” The email said it wanted to “ground-truth” some things with her in regard to “quite delicate/time sensitive” things.
August 14 is two days after the Ukraine whistleblower’s complaint was filed and after the whistleblower had already been in contact with Rep. Adam Schiff (D-CA) and his Congressional aide who told the whistleblower to bring his complaint to the ICIG. August 14 was a month before the complaint became public.
So, as Tucker notes, how long did other Democrats know about this and how long did it play out in secret before we became aware of it?
Carlson’s show asked the House Foreign Affairs Committee who responded, “The Committee wanted to hear from an ambassador whose assignment was cut short under unusual circumstances. This staff outreach was the culmination of a months-long effort that culminated in the September 9 launch of an investigation into these events.”
Oh, really? Months long? Exactly when did this effort to try to target the president start? August is only one month. And once again, we’ve been lied to as likely more people pretended they knew nothing while this was all going on behind the scenes.
Rep. Lee Zeldin (R-NY) asked Yovanovitch during her testimony about the email and she testified under oath that she never responded to the email. But according to Carlson, she did indeed respond, saying “she looked forward to chatting with the staffer.” If true, that makes her testimony before the House committee false.
So exactly how long has this been going on? Who knew about it? And what other Democrats or committee members knew or were involved while not saying anything or pretending they were being denied information publicly? And how many other Democratic “witnesses” may have been prepped ahead of time for this game?
First question from any of the Republicans for any of the “witnesses” should be – what has been your contact with any Democrats or staffers in the House and were you told to say anything or prepped in any way?
