President Trump has managed to finesse the Leftists once again, this time by doing something that given his track record, they should have expected. According to Rush Limbaugh, The President faked them out by releasing the transcript of the Ukraine phone call immediately after Speaker Pelosi announced her Impeachment “Inquiry.”

Limbaugh went on to opine that the Democrats thought The President would refuse to release it, that way they could make up whatever story they wanted to regarding its contents, while still excoriating him for withholding evidence. Limbaugh, obviously referring to the fact that the so-called “whistleblower’s” accusations are based on hearsay and press reports, noted that as soon as President Trump declassified the transcript and released it into the public domain, immediately everyone in the United States who read it, “knew more about the phone call, than the “whistleblower.”

Limbaugh made one final point, saying that because we have the transcript and the whistleblower illegal leaker wasn’t present on the call and thus has no first hand knowledge, there’s really no need for him to testify. I’m not sure I agree with that assessment. I think he should be forced to testify—and publicly. Before that, he should be deposed, by a bipartisan committee. This deposition should be placed into the public record.

Further, We need to find out who his co-conspirators are and put them under oath, also publicly. We need to get the counter intelligence unit of the FBI to conduct a criminal investigation of all of them, including if warranted, the Chairman of the House Intelligence Committee.

The Leftists cannot accept the results of an election and worse, knowing they cannot win in 2020 based on the issues, they have continuously conducted lawfare against this duly elected President. We need to bring them to heel…and right now. More than one person in our Intelligence Community has committed more than a few felonies in this case, in order to harm The President.** We need to use the same tools. Investigate Them. Put Them under oath. Make Them spend their personal (likely ill-gotten) wealth to pay attorneys by the hour to respond to lawyers on government salary. No quarter.

**My colleague Streiff, has written an excellent piece that in and of itself, would provide some excellent direction for the FBI to investigate these criminals.
