Quid Pro Quo, Impeachment, And The Deep State
Quid Pro Quo, Impeachment, And The Deep State
The Deep State and media believe that Trump’s call with Ukraine was the very definition of quid pro quo, thus impeachment is necessary. Did Tim Morrison confirm that yesterday during his testimony? According to the media, that is exactly what happened.
The media ran a narrative, Morrison definitively confirms quid pro quo!! WOOOOOOO!!
“White House Aide Confirms He Saw Signs of a Quid Pro Quo on Ukraine”
“Tim Morrison just confirmed the quid pro quo. That’s the big story here.”
“If Republicans think Tim Morrison’s testimony is good news for Trump, they’re grasping at straws”
Reading each of those articles, several things jump out at me.
One: Morrison, in his opening statement, disputes that Trump actually asked Zelensky to pursue the Burisma investigation. He states that the Sondland proposal was such that it would be sufficient if the inspector general would consider reopening that investigation.
Two: he points out that Sondland got other details wrong of Morrison’s account, including when and where Morrison met the Ukrainian National Security Advisor.
Three: he points out that there was discussion of a type of quid pro quo, yet that discussion (NOT A CALL) happened in SEPTEMBER. The call between Trump and Zelensky, transcribed here, does not discuss quid pro quo. Furthermore, that call took place when? JULY.
What the lovely media wants us to forget is that Morrison threw a spike in the call narrative.
““I want to be clear, I was not concerned that anything illegal was discussed,” former NSC Senior Director for European Affairs Tim Morrison testified today, according to a record of his remarks obtained by The Federalist.
Morrison testified that Ukrainian officials were not even aware that certain military funding had been delayed by the Trump administration until late August 2019, more than a month after the Trump-Zelensky call, casting doubt on allegations that Trump somehow conveyed an illegal quid pro quo demand during the July 25 call.
“I have no reason to believe the Ukrainians had any knowledge of the [military funding] review until August 28, 2019,” Morrison said. That is the same day that Rep. Adam Schiff, D-Calif., the chief anti-Trump inquisitor in the U.S. House of Representatives, disclosed on Twitter that funding had been held up. Politico also published a story that day, sourced to anonymous leaks, that military funding had been temporarily held up.”
Wait just a darned minute. Morrison testified, under oath, that he wasn’t concerned about the call? That nothing he heard sent alarm bells ringing? But quid pro quo! It was there…SOMEWHERE!!
Morrison lays out 3 concerns why he feared the leak of the phone readout: 1) How it would be received in “Washington's polarized environment” 2) How it would affect the U.S. relationship w/ Ukraine re. Congress and 3) how perceptions of it would affect relationship

Paging Adam Schiff. Why did you sit on the whistleblower complaint for over a month? As we are now finding out, the whistleblower is likely a highly partisan Democrat operative named Eric Ciaramella who worked for Biden from 2015-2016 when Biden was Obama’s Ukraine envoy and Hunter got his cushy gig with Burisma. It’s also clear that Ciaramella completely opposed Trump’s policies and is said to have been dropped from the White House for going outside the chain of command. Did he leave government service after that? NOPE. He went back to the CIA. The CIA connection is John Brennan.

As we’ve noted recently, the Deep State has gone all in to get Trump. Andrew McCabe for one, DNC Chair Tom Perez for another, don’t get me started on James Comey and all his shenanigans, and the media would love nothing more than to see Trump defeated by any means necessary.
As Toni explained here, the impeachment proceedings are moving forward. Said impeachment proceedings are so lopsided that, unless things change, Republicans will ONLY be allowed to bring witnesses or present evidence if Adam Schiff permits them to do so.
But that’s ok! Even though Tim Morrison didn’t really SAY there was quid pro quo, the fact that he is proud of his work with the Administration means his loyalty to Trump is proof that quid pro quo happened!
The Deep State and media are so invested in their hatred of all things Trump that they will grasp at any straw they can find, no matter how flimsy it is.
This impeachment process is a sham wrapped up in a farce brought to us by the Deep State, Congress, and the media. Our country is in the very best of hands.
