In yet another case of Democrat collusion with supposedly neutral witnesses, former U.S. Ambassador to Ukraine Marie Yovanovitch sought guidance from a Dem House staffer before giving her testimony — and that was only two days after the CIA informer made his complaint, according to an exclusive scoop by Fox News.
“They’re trying to weaken me,” said President Donald Trump on Friday morning to reporters ahead of a trip to Atlanta, Georgia. “But it’s actually making me stronger.”
Yovanovitch denied under oath that such a thing ever happened.
But someone leaked the real story about her.
“Emails appear to contradict Yovanovitch’s deposition on Capitol Hill last month, in which she told U.S. Rep. Lee Zeldin (R-N.Y.) about an email she received on August 14 from … staffer Laura Carey — but indicated under oath that she never responded to it,” as Fox News reported.

In other key news, the reaction from GOP leaders to the announcement by former Attorney General Jeff Sessions that he is now running to retake his old Senate seat representing Alabama has not been kind.
It is feared he could drag the president into the Republican primary — or set the stage for a resurgence of a Roy Moore nomination.
The far-Right Moore lost a safe seat in late 2017 to a relatively conservative Democrat candidate — who is now Sen. Doug Jones (D-Ala.).
Also, the Democrat-fueled fast track to the impeachment of President Trump could see a full House vote coming up before the Christmas holiday.
That would put D.C. in a hyper-partisan mood during the season — and make “Christmas Impeachment” a new term to describe the nation’s current political climate.

Democrats are looking to fast track impeachment in order for the House of Representatives to impeach him before Christmas. They are apparently skipping lengthy court battles with those who are defying subpoenas.

OK, now let’s delve a bit further into all of these stories.
1.) On the heels of the revelation that the CIA “whistleblower” himself had communicated and coordinated with the office of Rep. Adam Schiff (D-Calif.), the news about former diplomat Marie Yovanovitch working hand in glove with the Democrats undercuts the credibility of the entire Ukrainian quid pro quo argument — and exposes it for merely another Dem PR operation.
Democrats on Capitol Hill are playing a loose game, hoping that their behind-the-scenes coordination of the supposedly impartial impeachment inquiry will be overlooked by voters.
And it may be excused by Dem loyalists.
But swing voters in battleground states may not be too pleased at being manipulated by sanctimonious witnesses using Democrat talking points.
2.) And even though Jeff Sessions’ team produced this video making the case that his candidacy for the Senate is no snub to the Trump bandwagon, GOP leaders like Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) called Sessions’ run for the upper chamber “problematic.”
The president’s son Donald Trump, Jr. said last month, “First and foremost we need someone who can win the election next November,” an apparent reference to the possibility that Sessions could make an otherwise easy GOP pickup in doubt by complicating the run against incumbent Dem Sen. Doug Jones.
3.) The Dems may be planning to put impeachment coal in the president’s Christmas stocking — but the eventual numbers do not hold up to ruin President Trump’s holiday.
After the full House vote in the Dem-led chamber, the measure will move to the Senate — where even the most optimistic Democrat analysis has that party losing the vote to remove the president from office — by about 56-44 against removal.
After putting the country through this drama solely for a foregone conclusion, and in a presidential election year no less, swing voters may not be so enamored of the Dems once the entire process is over and they have failed in their oft-stated goal to end the Trump presidency.
Not only that, but the Trump base will be fighting mad — and will show it in the polls.
