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. 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.

  2. "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

  3. 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

  4. From Trump's "transcript": … "I would like you to do us a favor though, …they say Crowdstrike… The other thing, there's a lot of talk about Biden's son, that (Joe) Biden stopped the prosecution and a lot of people want to find out about that so whatever you can do with the Attorney General would be great. Biden went around bragging that he stopped the prosecution so if you can look into it… It sounds horrible to me".
    Trump's own words, from his "official" transcript, condemn him to impeachment.

  5. BRIBERY AND BIDEN!!! WADDA 'BOUT 'OBAMA 'N BRIBERY, EH!!?? 'O YO MAMA 'N BRIBBERY YO?…SORRY, I've lived in CA. an have seen way too many things and have seen way too many crimes against humanity and in their namesake lies their own seeds of destuction.

  6. All of the witnesses to date are upset because the president decided to be a leader and made decisions that he was allowed to make under the constitution. They all thought that as unelected individuals that they knew best what was needed for this country. They work at the behest of the president though. I thought a lot if this was confidential information, but apparently they have a gossip chain unlike any other. This is the dumbest inquisition I have ever listened to. The other impeachment’s in history started with actual crimes that led to impeachment. This is an impeachment in search of a crime. Since 19 minutes after Trump took office the search was on to find a way to impeach Trump. To hell with the 63 million people who elected Trump. The Democrats have attempted to impeach every conservative president since Eisenhower. Our forefathers are turning over in their graves over this. I was not happy when Obama was elected, but like an adult I knew I would be able to vote again for someone else in 4 years. That is the genius of our system. Unfortunately, the left has gone so far left that they would be ecstatic if they had lots more power and could control “we the people” like sheep.

  7. Thank God for YouTube because just like twitter, it's allows you to bypass the fake news media and get the truth and not let them control the narrative….not that I watch them.

  8. All these depositions and drama are nothing but direct Propaganda for unintelligent people to be swayed in 2020 votes to democrats. What a disgrace The country will never be the same

  9. The real criminal in this hearing is Adam Schiff and everyone knows it.  He doesn't care about the people.  He thinks he can become president but in fact he should be in jail.

  10. this is moronic-Ratcliffe is an absolute idiot-Trump asked a foreign government to interfere with a US election-that is an impeachable offense-and all you need to know.

  11. This impeachment nonsense may end up with the Patriots of America to "water the tree of liberty" with the blood of Democrats.

  12. America. America
    What does it take to be a Republican male

    Is being stupid, ignorant.arrogant, lair, spineless, ball less, coward,

    the main requirements to be a republican male. In Washington tramp swamps

  13. As a Canadian who loves watching American politics… Anyone who watches this and is a democrat should be ashamed at themselves. How the the hell can you trust what your leaders/representatives are telling you? Are you that ignorant or just stupid?

  14. Look dose this surprise you these Democratic criminals are fighting to stay out of prison most of the democrats that are on this fake impeachment hearing are criminals and traders that committed crimes under the obama administration thay no every day turmp is in power thay could to prison remember a few weeks barr said the russia collusion hoax was going to be investigated criminaley right democrats attacked with Ukrainian hoax thay are fighting to stay out of prison and this is how democrats think they can do it turmp 2020baby

  15. Unfortunately it appears that the only Americans who want the truth are the conservatives and folks in the middle. Those on the left want the MSM to interpret the hearings for them. And they wonder why Trump is still in office despite all the "damning" evidence from the past 36 months.

  16. Ratcliffe, what a perfect name for you. Where did you get educated? I can’t believe that you truly think you’re as smart as you seem think you are. Must be compensation for low self esteem. You are not fit to be in your position, RESIGN.💩💩💩💩🦂🕷🐀🐍

  19. no need, they all stated Hugo trumps own intentions in the investigations interest, Mr Rat   Cliffe, manble as ratpublicans speak, I surely taught republicans were eloquent smart and quick minded. I come to know their lack of it

  20. It is not the point of the witnesses to make such a determination. This is grandstanding be the Republicans that have nothing with which to defend Trump.

  21. The Republicans were brilliant! So glad they stepped up, showing the public why they must vote Trump/Pence & Republicans across the board in 2020. We must have Republicans in House & Senate + plus governors, mayor's, judges & especially in the White House. God bless Trump, Pence & all of the Republicans.

  22. And millions of tax payer dollars,it went quick when they had no pay for play,no extortion,no bribery,Schiff and Pelosi need to resign or be removed,pay for play was creepy Joe's baby,in Ukraine

  23. From Trump's "official" transcript of the phone call with President of Ukraine, July 25, 2019: "I would like you to do us a favor though."

    Who is the "us" in his statement? It is us, the American people, you and me. He goes on (from the transcript) to say: "they say Crowdstrike …" What is he saying here? This is a reference to a conspiracy theory that says the Ukraine, not Russia hacked the DNC emails during the 2016 election. And later he says " The other thing… there's a lot of talk about… that (Joe)Biden stopped the
    prosecution… Biden went around bragging that he stopped the prosecution… so if you ·can look into it … " And who is "Biden" he mentions in his "official" transcript? His political opponent, Vice President Joe Biden of course.
    Now, you have the President of the United States asking the Leader of a Foreign nation, as a favor to YOU, as an American citizen, to investigate his political opponent. Forget "bribery", "quid pro quo", the current impeachment process and even Adam Schiff, just for a moment and ask yourself is this NOT Abuse of Power, as defined by Article 2 of the constitution. Forget what Hannity, Carlson, Ingraham, and the other Fox news people say, and answer for yourself: are you ok with President Trump, IN YOUR NAME, using the Presidency for his own political purpose? How you answer that question defines what you are as an individual, whether you are a moral, ethical person or not, AND what sort of American you really are.

  24. The summary of this weeks impeachment hearing is: the Trump Administration, Russian Security spy agencies, the GOP, and this station Fox are co-conspirators to undermine Democratic Institutions in the USA and worldwide. The co-conspirators are liars, cheats, con-men, predators, racists, and evil. I want to thank Dr. Fiona Hill, Ambassador Sondlund, Ambassador Yavanovitch, Lt Col. Alexander Vindman and others for their courage to speak up! Congressman Nunes please remember it's not Mr. Vindman, but Lt. Col Vindman.

  25. Every wittness that testify are liesr who does this fake news is going to get them but in so much trouble cause Democrats need to stop their lies on president trump and be sent to prison.

  26. Democrats should pay back the money they stold from us all they are liers thieves racist so is Omar and the other 3,congresswoman who are illegal fraud Omar divorced her own brother to come to the United States and she's from Somali get them out of our country they hate us and isreal so how do we know it's not one of them who blamed isreals president for fraud when we the people love isreal.we hate Omar and the other 3 Congress woman get them out send them back to their country all they are is trouble and I wouldn't be surprised if they are in on it with impeaching Trump.

  27. 203 demorats put thumbs down. Lmao. Truth will always prevail .The liars shall pay dearly. On this day GOD AND CHRIST SHALL BRING EVIL DOWN ON IT's Knees. Amen

  28. Wow. The Democrats are making so many of these Republicans look like rock stars. They are making it so easy with this bogus impeachment. I thought you needed something real to impeach a president. Should there not be consequences for the people who have created this fiasco

  29. What about Stiff's involvement in Ukraine. And look at this: In April 2014, Devon Archer, a former senior adviser to the John Kerry 2004 presidential campaign, and Hunter Biden, an attorney and the son of then-US vice president Joe Biden, joined the board. Archer left the company in 2018 and Biden left in April 2019, when his term as a director expired. The question still remains as to what qualifications Archer and Biden had to serve on the board?

  30. Perhaps because Trump and his brownshirts have already threatened Yavonovitch, Vindman, Stormi Daniels and their families with bodily harm, they're a little too shy to go that far. I would think extortion and quid pro quo was sufficient to implicate the President's criminal behavior.

  31. Rep. Ratcliffe, will be known as one of the great citizens of this country for his work during these trying times. His service during these times have displayed his greatness, & willingness to uphold the Constitution of this great country!

  32. A man being hauled before a legal panel who has committed no crime…huh….sounds like a Family Court proceeding in almost any jurisdiction and on any given day in a year. 😉 Now some in Congress know how "the other half lives" well at least a little bit. Of course they don't get to see or witness the scene at the end where the dude is handcuffed and hauled off to jail. So your argument AGAINST MGTOW is what? I keep forgetting because YOU keep creating more and more reasons that SUPPORT it. 😉

  33. after this Ukraine impeachment hoax is over, again no one will be punished. . and we're all probably wondering what the Democratic party are going to come up with next?is coming to the point that we the people are going to have to stand up and say look , this is how it's done and this is the way it's going be done. because it seems like nobody is listening to what we're saying. I am fed up with all the drama make-believe fairytale horseshit. the people that are committing the crime are walking free. but yet the American citizens are the ones that pay for it. and why? what did we ever do? I'm done with all the horseshit lies. I'm done for being punished for what they do wrong . it's time that We The People rise, because if we don't… it's not going to change it's only going to get worse.

  34. The vote in 2020 will be 85 million + votes for PRESIDENT TRUMP .THE HOUSE AND THE SENATE WILL BE REPUBLICAN. The CARUPTION in the DEMOCRATIC PARTY must be DESTROYED.. No SOCIALIST IN this REPUBLIC .

  35. How stupid do they think Americans are? We see through the bs..you promised resistance and you’ve delivered…you politicians have been abusing your position as CIVIL SERVANTS for way too long, it’s time to pay the piper

  36. every video w this guy STAR WITNESS HOLMES has the comment section TURNED OFF! These demons are SO WEAK. Hilarious and obvious Holmes is a SAME SEXER!……..THEY FEAR TRUMP AND THE SUPREME COURT. HAHA!

  37. Vindman is a stupid and useless officer. He even did not know his own roles. That's why he changed his writen testimony on his job description. He is an idiot, bulahit and a rubish officer.

  38. Trump going to be the champion after this match with the Demorats….hope these slime balls toss and turn all night knowing TRUMP is going to be President of the United States of America in 2020

  39. America is watching our Democraps waste Millions of Dollars, Solve ZERO pressing issues or even have a discussion about them because they are PISSED that the American VOTER elected this President. WEEEEEEEE SSEEEEEEEEEE YOOUUUUUUUU and we ALSO Vote. Gain the house for 2 years and Wrecked the Country since. We SEEEEEE You. And we will Vote you out soon.

  40. Democrats Should be Ashamed of themselfs Along with Obama, Bloomberg Adam Schiff George Soro who Runs the Shows with his Puppets Antifa ..Nancy Hillary Schumer Mueller and Nadler Are all SICKOs ..Look at Omar She is Against our America Her and her Sisters Squad Women ..Tlabid AOC Harris And Harris Nephew they were all involved in Obama Dividing ..That's Why Somllett Did it that Was Obama doing ..Obama started Riots like That for.8 Years along with His Cronies look at Mikee Radical Racist ..Seems like Hollywood Cronies of Obama Mikee Like too Stir Trouble I'm America ..Now that Obama with Chicago Cronie And New York Good Friend of Clinton's Hillary George Soro Son Alex Soro ..They were Saying Alex Soro is going too Run For Senator.Under a Different .Name ..Gee I wonder Why ,,..Seems too me that's What Omar AOC Tlabid Harris And Beto All try Changing there Names before they get into House of Democrats ..Look it up…Watch America If you Think Biden is Creepy Look Up Bloomberg ..He's Worse ..There all SICKOs ..Democrats Talk like a Duck Quake like and Lie like Duck…There all have Same old Lines for Years these..Democrats Need out too Pasture ..30 Years Time …Up ..

  41. Wish someone would start a civil war to purge these evil democRATS from OUR AMerica. They are pure evil and couthless scum, nothing more

  42. Just curious, can a citizen of U.S. file lawsuit against the a democratic congressman who mislead the public and had planned this by using mainstream media to promote false statements about president Trump?
    Can a citizen file charges against the democrats who started a public speech to coach their followers to afflict damages on property and injuries to Trump followers?
    Can the people of America file lawsuit against the democrats who intentionally used the mainstream media to promote hate against Trump supporters including our president of the United States?
    Can a citizen file charges against a Senator of the democrat party out side of Washington DC court where they are protected from their bs?.

  43. Nail in the coffin with this nonsense. And to think that during this time they could have worked on the things they were voted in for… ahem… Healthcare; Not one hour towards this. Dems are a joke.

  44. I wish the camera was facing shifty Adam, when Ratcliffe placed all those documents on the table. Shifty's bludging eyes must have popped out their socket. While his brain fizzled "OH no the gig is up" Handcuffs PLEASE!

  45. bribery of Trump? that's almost as funny as when schiff says that biden is trump's most feared political opponent.
