As expected, on Day Two of Schiff’s show trial impeachment inquiry proceedings there was high drama once again on Capitol Hill as former U.S. Ambassador to Ukraine Marie Yovanovitch appeared before the House Intelligence Committee to provide her witness testimony.
After President Trump took to the Twitter machine as she testified to express his opinion on Yovanovitch, the mainstream media, Democrats, and Never Trumpers alike all screamed in horror that Trump was guilty of “witness intimidation.”
This in spite of the fact that the former ambassador would have had no way of knowing about Trump’s tweet had Schiff not taken it upon himself to READ IT to her as she testified. It was a classic move by the circus ringmaster, done for maximum effect in front of the cameras, knowing what the reactions of The Usual Suspects would be.
My Red State colleague Streiff has already written a good explainer as to why Trump’s comments were not even close to “witness intimidation”, but such rational arguments were not on the mind of failed 2016 Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton, who jumped on the “it was witness intimidation” bandwagon herself in a tweet posted earlier today:
Witness intimidation is a crime, no matter who does it. Full stop.

Considering all the Jeffrey Epstein memes that have been floating around for months after his mysterious death back in August – memes which insinuate that the Clintons might have had something to do with his alleged “suicide”, it was probably not a good idea for Clinton to weigh in on this specific matter.
Twitter users let her know it:
So is witness elimination.

I think Juanita Broaddrick, Paula Jones and Kathleen Willey know full well what real intimidation is.

Tell us more about your witness intimidation during your so-named "bimbo eruption" scandals??/

You threatened and intimidated the women who accused your husband. You. And you’re also the one who later, hoping everyone had forgotten all the crap you did to those women, said all women who say they’ve been assaulted should be believed. Yeah. You! You did that.

Hillary probably should have sat this one out.
Update: Juanita Broaddrick weighed in as well:
I say FULL STOP TO YOU, you political tyrant has been.
