From the very moment that Donald Trump was elected President of these United States, the race has been on to remove him from office.
The Democrats, shocked and appalled that Hillary Clinton wasn’t a shoe-in for the Oval Office, took their incensed irritation to the streets, to the Capitol, and even to the White House itself, with a number of schemes and scams being hatched for the purpose of ousting our Commander in Chief.
The latest of these cockamamy collusions comes to us from Kiev, Ukraine, and hinges on the idea that President Trump was extorting that nation for political dirt on a potential rival.
The story isn’t holding up so well during pubic hearings, however.
From the view of the White House and some top Republicans, U.S. Rep. Chris Stewart’s questioning of former U.S. Ambassador to Ukraine Marie Yovanovitch on Friday was the point where House Democrats’ impeachment argument showed the party had “no case” against President Trump.
During Friday’s public hearings, Yovanovitch told Stewart, a Utah Republican on the House Intelligence Committee, that she could supply the panel with no information regarding criminal activity or bribes that President Trump may have been involved with.
Stewart: “I would now feel compelled to ask you, Madam Ambassador, as you sit here before us, very simply and directly, do you have any information regarding the president of the United States accepting any bribes?”
Stewart: “Do you have any information regarding any criminal activity that the president of the United States has been involved with at all?”
Even the White House heralded the inquisition.
In 30 seconds, @RepChrisStewart got the answers that House Democrats have spent 7 hours trying to avoid.
7 hours that Congress could’ve spent working for you—on drug price legislation, USMCA, immigration reform, or infrastructure—instead of for their own political careers. https://t.co/dRhvjp7NWq pic.twitter.com/PkuyG8m4H0

The impeachment farce will continue, though, thanks in no small part to the “resistance” support that the Democrats have cultivated both within the voting public and within the mainstream media.
