Mark Levin joined Fox News’ Sean Hannity on Thursday night. “The Great One,” as Hannity calls him, delivered a powerful message to House Intelligence Committee chair Adam Schiff.
No conservative commentator can cut to the heart of the matter quite like Levin can. He’s able to look at two weeks of mind-numbing witness testimony, extract the facts and explain it all in six minutes. I’ve transcribed the majority of his remarks below. But, if you have a few minutes, I highly recommend watching the clip. Because it is through Levin’s frequently changing tones of voice that a listener hears his message best. Particularly amusing is when his normally booming voice becomes quiet, suddenly soft, and he asks, “Adam, did you write this?”
After we were attacked at Pearl Harbor, Admiral Yamamoto of Japan said, ‘I fear all we have done is to awaken a sleeping giant and fill him with a terrible resolve.’ You know, Adam Schiff, you are, in some ways, Admiral Yamamoto. You just awakened a sleeping giant. You threw everything you had at the president, at the Republicans, at 63 million voters who voted for this president and this is the best you have? This is the best you had? You have nothing! And you controlled everything. You control the witnesses, you control the information, you interrupted the Republicans. You had control over the hearing room, control over the rules and the timing at the press events. And you’ll have control over the charging documents. You are the Democrat party’s Yamamoto. And even now with all the control you have had, all the positive press, and all the clownish legal analysts and the rest, and the propaganda that they are pushing, and they are celebrating, the polls for Donald Trump are going up.
Once the Senate has control over this, there’s no more Adam Schiff control. There’s no more Nancy Pelosi control…
And the American people. They revere their constitution…They demand fairness from their representatives.
And let me tell you something Democrats. You screwed up big time. This was the weakest conga line of handpicked witnesses I’ve ever seen in any hearing at any time. There’s no smoking gun. Overwhelmingly hearsay. What did we have here? A small cabal of State Department and NSC bureaucrats who didn’t like Trump for his policies. Yet, every single one of them when pressed by the Republicans had to admit that there was no b bribery, no extortion, no quid pro quo and no impeachable offense…
Not a single witness could or would accuse the President of criminality. Only a single witness had directly spoken with or met with the President about any of these issues. And he said, “The President didn’t do anything.”
We’re getting these lectures from the witnesses and the Democrats, ‘Ukraine needed the aid. We need it for geopolitical reasons.’ Their witness today, Fiona Hill, ‘I can’t believe the President did this. He’s empowering the Russians. And she wrote a few years earlier a long op-ed saying don’t give the Ukrainians the military aid they’re asking for.’…
It was Trump who got the Ukrainians the weapons that they needed.
It was Trump who stopped the Russians.
It was Trump who put the most severe sanctions in history on the Russians.
It was Obama who appeased the Russians.
It was Obama under whose presidency the Russians invaded Ukraine and annexed Crimea.
If you want to impeach, then we have to retroactively impeach Obama.
Now, this will move to the Senate. Let’s hope for once the Republicans grow a spine. I want to remind the Republicans including the half dozen who said, ‘We cannot reveal the whistleblower.’
Read your damn law. You wrote it. The so-called whistleblower is not a whistleblower under your law. The so-called whistleblower’s complaint is not covered by the statute that you wrote.
The phone call between President Trump and President Zelensky is not covered by the statute you wrote.
President Trump is not covered by the statute you wrote. The so-called whistleblower is not anonymous under the statute, is he?
So the President’s lawyers will finally get a shot at the whistleblower. Who never wrote this complaint. And they will get to ask him – I know all about him, but I’m not allowed to say – but it’s time that sham comes to an end.
A President gets to confront the person who is challenging him. Here’s some of the questions for Mr. Whistleblower.
Who was involved in writing the complaint?
Who advised him to use the whistleblower statute to create this false protection?
Did he speak to Adam Schiff or Nancy Pelosi or any Democrat members of Congress directly or through surrogates?
What did he discuss with Schiff’s staffers who were formerly at the NSC?
Did he speak to Lt. Col. Vindman or not?
We want to know all about this whistleblower because the whistleblower wants to bring down the President of the United States. Moreover, we want Hunter Biden. Not because of anything in our imagination or right wing conspiracy theories. Because you folks at the New York Times and Politico and other places, you’ve told us about the Bidens…
This is the whistleblower’s complaint. This has been Adam Schiff’s playbook from day one.
Adam, did you write this?
Adam, were you involved in writing this because Adam needs to be a witness too. We want to know all about Adam. We know he’s a liar. But we need to put him under oath under penalty of perjury.
When you go through this complaint, you see this was Adam Schiff’s playbook from day one…
This was a shadowy exercise by Schiff, his staff, the whistleblower and the Democrats to bring down the President.
