BREAKING – GOP Witness Stephen Castor Clears Trump Of All Charges,

Just now, GOP lawyer Stephen Castor just blew a mile-wide hole in Nadler’s impeachment argument and Jerry will not be able to recover.

Stephen Castor details the case against Trump and picks it apart piece by piece in a devastating statement he made today during Nadler’s second impeachment hearing.

Castor said:

THE CHIEF ALLEGATION THAT THE IMPEACHMENT INQUIRY HAS BEEN TRYING TO ASSESS OVER THE LAST 66 DAYS IS THIS — WHETHER PRESIDENT TRUMP ABUSED THE POWER OF HIS OFFICE THROUGH QUID PRO QUO, EXTORTION OR WHATEVER, BY WITHHOLDING A MEETING OR SECURITY ASSISTANCE AS A WAY OF PRESSURING UKRAINIAN PRESIDENT ZELENSKY TO INVESTIGATE THE PRESIDENT’S POLITICAL RIVAL, FORMER VP BIDEN, FOR THE PRESIDENT’S POLITICAL BENEFIT IN THE UPCOMING ELECTION.

ALSO THE SECONDARY ALLEGATION THAT HAS BEEN LEVIED IS WHETHER PRESIDENT TRUMP OBSTRUCTED CONGRESS DURING THE INQUIRY. THE EVIDENCE OBTAINED DURING THE INQUIRY DOES NOT SUPPORT EITHER OF THOSE ALLEGATIONS. THE REPUBLICAN REPORT OF EVIDENCE LAYS OUT THE REPORT IN MORE DETAILS BUT I WILL SUMMARIZE.

NOW I WILL BEGIN WITH THE SUBSTANTIVE ALLEGATION ABOUT AN ABUSE OF POWER. THE INQUIRY HAS RETURNED NO DIRECT EVIDENCE THAT PRESIDENT TRUMP WITHHELD A MEETING OR SECURITY ASSISTANCE IN ORDER TO PRESSURE PRESIDENT ZELENSKY TO INVESTIGATE FORMER VP BIDEN.

HOWEVER WITNESSES WHO TESTIFIED IN THE INQUIRY HAVE DENIED HAVING AWARENESS OF CRIMINAL ACTIVITY OR EVEN AN IMPEACHABLE OFFENSE.

ALSO ON THE KEY QUESTION OF THE PRESIDENT’S STATE OF MIND, THERE IS NO CLEAR EVIDENCE THAT THE PRESIDENT TRUMP ACTED WITH MALICIOUS INTENT.

NOW OVERALL, AT BEST, THE IMPEACHMENT INQUIRY RECORD IS RIDDLED WITH HEARSAY, PRESUMPTIONS AND SPECULATION.

THERE ARE CONFLICTING AND AMBIGUOUS FACTS THROUGHOUT THE RECORD, FACTS THAT COULD BE INTERPRETED IN DIFFERENT WAYS.

TO PARAPHRASE PROFESSOR TURLEY FROM LAST WEEK, THE IMPEACHMENT INQUIRY IS HEAVY ON PRESUMPTION, LIGHT ON TRUTH.

THAT’S NOT ME SAYING THAT. THAT’S PROFESSOR TURLEY. LET ME START WITH THE BEST DIRECT EVIDENCE OF ANY POTENTIAL QUID PRO QUO OR IMPEACHABLE SCHEME.

THIS IS PRESIDENT TRUMP’S PHONE CALL WITH ZELENSKY FOR WHICH THE NATIONAL SECURITY COUNCIL AND THE WHITE HOUSE SITUATION ROOM STAFF PREPARED A CALL SUMMARY.

NOW ACCORDING TO TESTIMONY FROM TIM MORRISON AT THE NSC, THE SUMMARY WAS ACCURATE AND COMPLETE.

NSC STAFF MEMBER LIEUTENANT COLONEL VINDMAN TESTIFIED THAT ANY OMISSIONS IN THE SUMMARY WERE NOT SIGNIFICANT AND THAT EDITING WAS NOT DONE MALICIOUSLY. PRESIDENT TRUMP HAS DECLASSIFIED AND RELEASED THE SUMMARY SO THE AMERICAN PEOPLE CAN READ IT AND ASSESS IT FOR THEMSELVES.

I’LL MAKE A FEW POINTS THAT SEEM TO HAVE GONE UNDERNOTICED.

THE CALL SUMMARY REFLECTS ABSOLUTELY NO PRESSURE OR CONDITIONALITY. PRESIDENT ZELENSKY VOCALIZED NO CONCERNS WITH THE SUBJECT MATTERS DISCUSSED.

AND THERE IS NO INDICATION OF BRIBERY, EXTORTION OR OTHER ILLEGAL CONDUCT ON THE CALL. THE CALL SUMMARY SHOWS PRESIDENT TRUMP AND PRESIDENT ZELENSKY ENGAGED IN PLEASANTRIES AND CORDIALITIES.

FURTHERMORE THE CALL SUMMARY REVEALS LAUGHTER. SIMPLY PUT, THE CALL IS NOT THE SINISTER MOB SHAKEDOWN SOME DEMOCRATS HAVE DESCRIBED.

PRESIDENT TRUMP RAISED HIS CONCERNS ABOUT EUROPEAN ALLIES PAYING THEIR FAIR SHARE IN SECURITY ASSISTANCE TO UKRAINE, A CONCERN THAT PRESIDENT TRUMP WOULD CONTINUE TO RAISE BOTH PUBLICLY AND PRIVATELY.

THERE IS NO DISCUSSION ON THE CALL, I REPEAT, NO DISCUSSION ON THE CALL ABOUT THE UPCOMING 2020 ELECTION OR SECURITY ASSISTANCE TO UKRAINE. BEYOND THE CALL SUMMARY, THE NEXT BEST PIECE OF EVIDENCE ARE THE STATEMENTS FROM THE TWO PARTICIPANTS ON THE CALL. PRESIDENT ZELENSKY HAS SAID HE FELT NO PRESSURE ON THE CALL.

FINALLY ON SEPTEMBER 25th AT THE UNITED NATIONS HE SAID, WE HAD A GOOD CALL. IT WAS NORMAL. NOBODY PUSHED AM HE. ON OCTOBER 6th, PRESIDENTZELENSKY SAID, I WAS NEVER PRESSURED AND THERE WERE NO CONDITIONS BEING IMPOSED.

FOUR DAYS LATER ON OCTOBER 10th, PRESIDENT ZELENSKY SAID AGAIN, THERE WAS NOTHING WRONG WITH THE CALL. NO BLACKMAIL. THIS IS NOT CORRUPTION.

IT WAS JUST A CALL AND JUST RECENTLY IN “TIME” MAGAZINE PRESIDENT ZELENSKY SAID, I NEVER TALKED TO THE PRESIDENT FROM A POSITION OF A QUID PRO QUO.

BECAUSE PRESIDENT ZELENSKY WOULD BE THE TARGET OF ANY ALLEGED QUID PRO QUO SCHEME, HIS STATEMENTS DENYING ANY PRESSURE CARRIES SIGNIFICANT WEIGHT.
