2020 Dems use new ‘scandal’ to gin up impeachment; Kamala appeals directly to whistleblower

Several Democrat presidential candidates have begun calling for President Donald Trump’s impeachment over a set of still-unsubstantiated, media-crafted allegations.

Leading the pack is Sen. Elizabeth Warren, who’s gradually been closing in on lead candidate former Vice President Joe Biden but has thus far been unable to knock him out of the top spot.

In a Twitter rant posted Friday evening, she maintained that Congress should have already begun impeachment hearings after the release of former special counsel Robert Mueller’s nothing-burger report last spring.

Citing the latest set of dubious allegations against the president, she then accused Trump of thinking “he’s above the law” and demanded that Congress begin impeachment hearings, asap.

Look:

The current set of unconfirmed allegations against the president are based on remarks made to The Washington Post, The New York Times, and The Wall Street Journal by anonymous officials who claim — but appear unable to prove — that, according to some mysterious whistleblower, the president had made a “troubling” remark to an unidentified some foreign leader.

That leader has since been identified as Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky.

“President Trump in a July phone call repeatedly pressured the president of Ukraine to investigate Joe Biden’s son …  urging Volodymyr Zelensky about eight times to work with Rudy Giuliani on a probe that could hamper Mr. Trump’s potential 2020 opponent,” the Journal reported Friday.

These allegations were again based on the words of anonymous sources.

What’s known for certain is that a so-called “whistleblower” within the Trump administration did file some sort of complaint. However, it hasn’t been proven that the complaint involved Trump. Nor has it been demonstrated that the complaint is even remotely legitimate.

Proof of the latter fact was provided by none other than CNN.

“The whistleblower didn’t have direct knowledge of the communications, an official briefed on the matter told CNN,” the far-left outlet grudgingly admitted Friday.

“Instead, the whistleblower’s concerns came in part from learning information that was not obtained during the course of their work, and those details have played a role in the administration’s determination that the complaint didn’t fit the reporting requirements under the intelligence whistleblower law, the official said.”

This stunning admission fits with other reports that have emerged.

“The complaint forwarded to the ICIG does not meet the definition of ‘urgent concern,” Office of the Director of National Intelligence counsel Jason Klitenic reportedly tried to explain to House Intelligence Committee chair Adam Schiff earlier this week.

“This complaint … concerned conduct by someone outside the Intelligence Community and did not relate to any ‘intelligence activity’ under the DNI’s supervision … the law did not require that the DNI forward the complaint to the Intelligence Committees.”

Yet despite a wide array of evidence countering the narrative that’s been propagated by the Post, the Times and the Journal, Warren is by no means the only candidate now pushing for impeachment.

Case in point:

Meanwhile, candidate Sen. Kamala Harris has pleaded with the whistleblower to publicly out himself or herself.

“I absolutely urge this whistleblower to go directly to Congress, whether in closed session or open … you have an obligation to let the American people know when any member of our government is collaborating with a foreign government to undermine our democracy,” she said in a statement to NBC on Friday.

“This is so much bigger than any individual. The United States Congress has a duty, a statutory duty, to engage in oversight when there has been abuse. So this is about, again, Congress’s ability to do its job.”

She added that the whistleblower “may feel a sense of concern that they’re going to be attacked by this president, but the American people will stand with you.”

Listen:

Conservative radio show host Rush Limbaugh has warned that, much like all the hollering over the Mueller investigation, this current round of hoopla and outrage over yet another set of still-unsubstantiated, media-crafted allegations is going to blow up in the Democrats’ face.

“This is gonna blow up in their faces again. These people are too stupid to realize how they’ve already bombed out,” he bluntly predicted Thursday.
