I don’t know if we’ve reached Peak Stupid yet, but we can certainly see it from here.

Dismissed former Ambassador to Ukraine Marie Yovanovitch is currently giving her testimony before Adam Schiff’s kangaroo court. President Trump, being, well President Trump, took to Twitter to let everyone know what he thought of the situation.

Then we had this:

This is just profoundly stupid. Yovanovitch has already given a deposition. Her oral testimony is just a recitation of it. There is no hint that she was so shaken by Trump’s accurate recitation of the string of disasters she’s left behind her to change her testimony into something else. Beyond that, if anyone is guilty of anything here it is Schiff because Yovanovitch was not on Twitter when Trump sent the knicker-wadding tweet. She only learned about it from Schiff.

We see this over and over in this bullsh** proceeding. First we’re told that because it is a political undertaking and not a legal one, that Congress can question witnesses in secret, not Mirandize witnesses, compel the President’s lawyers to break attorney-client privilege, and just about anything else because #OrangeManBad. Then, whenever the White House goes on the offensive, we’re bombarded with utter horsesh** about “witness tampering” or “obstruction” or some other nebulous crap. Prime example:

I really hope that Schiff does try to make this into “witness tampering” or “intimidation” or whatever nonsense he wants to call it. Because all this will do is make it that much easier for flaky, on-the-fence Senators to quickly dismiss this travesty and it allows the American public to see exactly what is going on in the House.
