Brad Johnson on Impeachment fiasco and Ukraine

 

 

 
Brad Johnson there is an awful lot going
00:02
on speaking as somebody who very much
00:04
admires and watches the states I got to
00:07
admit as an awful lot I just don’t get
00:09
so I think we should start with the
00:11
Ukraine and maybe at some point also and
00:15
I guess it’s related could you explain
00:17
what the heck impeachment actually means
00:20
because most people I know think it
00:22
means that you’re being dethroned you’re
00:24
you’re somehow being forcibly removed
00:26
from office and that clearly isn’t what
00:27
it is so you know take it away
00:30
sure let’s in fact start with that kind
00:33
of the definition of trees are why you
00:35
would impeach somebody and how it would
00:38
be done and essentially the president
00:40
United States has to do something
00:42
illegal he has to break the laws and be
00:45
found to be guilty of those things and
00:48
what the process is it starts on the
00:51
house side and a majority has to vote
00:54
for it then I think it’s it’s two-thirds
00:57
in the Senate to confirm and confirm the
01:01
impeachment now going forward there’s
01:05
just so many problems that it’s just
01:08
it’s kind of silly the way we’re ending
01:11
up now it’s definitely going to hurt the
01:15
Democrats in the long run but the the
01:20
Democrats I think the magic number is
01:21
they need to get 281 votes on the house
01:24
side which is Nancy Pelosi in order to
01:27
pass the impeachment and then it gets
01:31
sent over to the Senate now up until now
01:34
Nancy Pelosi has had one hundred and
01:36
fifty or sixty votes Nancy Pelosi
01:38
doesn’t want to do it she’s a seasoned
01:40
political trooper and understands that
01:43
this is not a positive for them but she
01:46
understands also that it’s a requirement
01:48
for the radical base that are the ones
01:50
that vote in the primary and if they
01:52
pissed that base off then they’re gonna
01:54
have trouble in the general election so
01:56
they’ve they’re they’ve gotten
01:58
themselves into a real mess and that’s
02:00
what’s happening on the on the
02:01
Democratic side so she came out this
02:03
morning early yesterday rather and said
02:05
yeah well we’re gonna go forward with a
02:09
I think the work she looked at was said
02:11
was like investigation of impeachment or
02:13
something to that in fact so it’s not
02:16
like a real impeachment but we’re
02:18
looking at an impeachment so she’s
02:20
trying to kind of walk the edge and play
02:22
both sides of the issue without actually
02:25
declaring for impeachment or saying
02:26
we’re not going to do it so she’s trying
02:28
to walk down the middle and you know
02:30
that doesn’t sound like a politician at
02:33
all
02:33
pardon me that doesn’t sound like a
02:36
politician at all no of course not yes
02:39
yes we were always so straightforward
02:41
and honest so yeah actually doing the
02:43
typical politician thing you’re right
02:44
and so that’s that’s basically what the
02:47
impeachment is high crimes and the other
02:51
terms not misdemeanors high crimes and
02:53
something else but basically felonies
02:55
were felonies
02:56
now go ahead felonies yeah absolutely I
03:03
mean it you know I you know if it’s some
03:05
misdemeanor thing it’s probably not
03:06
gonna rise to the level where they’d get
03:08
in that much trouble so you’re you’re
03:10
probably gonna have to be in the felony
03:11
world I mean it’s very theoretical to
03:13
discuss that no I don’t think anyone’s
03:15
ever been we’ve ever had a president in
03:17
peached where they actually kicked out
03:19
of office I mean Nixon resigned didn’t
03:22
Clinton was impeached but it wasn’t
03:24
confirmed by the Senate and back in
03:26
history I believe it was a President
03:27
Johnson way back when was was within a
03:30
vote or two in the Senate of losing but
03:32
he held held the vote so didn’t get
03:35
impeached so there’s been some close
03:37
calls but it’s never been actually
03:39
enacted and the problem with the whole
03:41
thing on the left is you know they say
03:42
impeach impeach impeach this is all this
03:44
and you if he did that that would be
03:46
terrible it would be impeachable but
03:48
well if he did that if he did that well
03:50
true you know if he murdered ten people
03:52
yeah how it would be impeachable but or
03:54
if he did that or you know you can take
03:57
any number of things that would be in be
03:58
chable but the problem is he hasn’t done
04:00
any of those things
04:01
none of them it’s all made up it’s all
04:04
invented you’re they’re still talking
04:05
impeachment but they you notice nobody
04:08
ever asks the question okay you want to
04:10
impeach the president watch he guilty oh
04:12
what’s the crime well if he had done
04:14
this at me okay well if he did it yeah
04:16
but what did he do
04:18
I mean we need to have a concrete crime
04:20
to impeach him for and they don’t cry
04:23
she has to keep tripping them up by
04:25
actually releasing the data that they’re
04:30
destroyed once again and it shows that
04:32
the Democrats for the joke they are the
04:34
joke they’ve become and I went through
04:36
this this morning it was released at
04:38
10:00 a.m. this morning Eastern Time
04:40
here in the Washington area and
04:42
basically he just he said the essence of
04:45
it was look if there’s something illegal
04:48
go take a look at it you know finish the
04:51
investigation it looks like this was
04:53
blocked back in you know Joe Biden’s
04:56
days when he was vice president did you
04:58
see his what he said and his interviews
05:00
about the whole thing and if there’s
05:02
anything they are gonna follow through
05:04
on it and coordinating back with I
05:06
talked to Rudy Giuliani and make sure
05:08
you’re on track and then make sure you
05:10
follow up with us Attorney General Barr
05:12
so what he’s saying is you know we have
05:14
there’s anything illegal there follow up
05:16
on it and work it back through the legal
05:17
system here he’s asking both legal
05:19
systems work like they’re supposed to
05:21
well that’s also his job and when
05:23
there’s things that are of now that
05:25
takes place all up and down levels of
05:27
the government myself as a former chief
05:29
of station if there’s something like
05:31
that that’s a problem that was in my
05:32
level I mean those sorts of
05:33
conversations take place every day
05:35
ambassadors have those conversations
05:37
Chiefs of station at those types of
05:39
conversations and certainly other
05:41
federal agencies that serve in embassies
05:43
overseas have those conversations this
05:45
was some stuff that if if Joe Biden
05:48
blackmailed and was you know interfering
05:53
in the judicial system of Ukraine and
05:56
you know blackmailed them using us a to
05:59
get this guy fired that was a prosecutor
06:02
that was investigating his son’s company
06:04
and his son if that’s what he meaning
06:07
that is what he did he’s admitted to it
06:09
if his motive was to save his truck son
06:12
from getting in legal trouble
06:13
well that’s illegal that’s a big deal
06:16
and so the president’s saying look this
06:18
is potentially a very big deal you know
06:20
we never did find out the answer what is
06:22
the answer go go you know see if you can
06:24
dig it out and then just coordinated
06:25
back through the legal system if it’s
06:27
nothing it’s nothing if it’s something
06:28
in something the other thing he asked
06:30
about was the there apparently is a
06:31
clone
06:33
that was in Ukraine of Hillary Clinton’s
06:36
the illegal server with all those
06:37
classified documents on and emails and
06:39
so on which there’s your tens of
06:41
thousands of classified documents on
06:43
those things if they have one
06:45
so you said if you’ve got it you know we
06:46
want to know which I can a massive
06:48
illegal leak we don’t even know we
06:50
haven’t seen all of the documents Aris
06:52
and we don’t know where people killed as
06:54
a result of these classified documents
06:56
that were that were out there who all
06:58
has seen them you know we don’t know and
06:59
all that stuff so nobody’s ever been
07:02
able to do a damage assessment so all
07:04
that those are those are the two things
07:05
basically asked about other than that it
07:07
was you know there was no quid pro quo
07:09
at all you know he didn’t say you go do
07:11
that for me and and then I’ll do this
07:13
for you or if you don’t do that for me I
07:15
won’t do this for you I mean there was
07:17
none of any of that the only person
07:19
who’s actually 100% we know for a fact
07:21
that asked for a quid pro quo was bite
07:25
and he is admitted to it in multiple I
07:28
want you to see you I watched a video on
07:30
that today yeah let me ask you a
07:32
question where I’ve watched a video of
07:33
him saying that today it seems to me
07:37
that since President Trump was elected
07:39
there’s only two really consistent
07:41
things and one is that the anti-state
07:44
the sort of state within a state has
07:48
been doing everything it can to destroy
07:51
his presidency and the second thing is
07:54
that it appears that every time
07:58
president from about to release
08:02
information or to begin an investigation
08:04
on some of the staggering and
08:07
unprecedented level crimes that it
08:09
appears the Democrat Party or members of
08:10
the Democrat Party have committed over
08:13
the last maybe ten years that they are
08:17
then just doing these Hail Marys and
08:19
just randomly you know using President
08:24
Trump of anything they can think of like
08:25
throwing spaghetti against the wall to
08:27
see if it sticks
08:28
yes there’s no question that that’s
08:30
what’s going on and I’ve mentioned it a
08:32
number of times before but everybody in
08:34
Washington knows what’s coming and
08:37
McCabe is already in the process of
08:40
being indicted for perjury it looks like
08:42
it hasn’t come out so I mean we have to
08:44
wait for confirmation but that’s that’s
08:46
what it looks like he lied under oath
08:48
three or four times maybe five
08:50
it appears and so it’s probably going to
08:53
be indicted
08:53
probably for perjury so we’ll see that
08:56
has to play out over the next week or
08:57
two or something but beyond that the
09:00
FISA requests that was originally done
09:02
and don’t forget I mean some of the
09:04
signers on that were former FBI director
09:06
James Comey former Deputy Director of
09:08
the FBI Andrew McCabe which who’s
09:10
already going to be indicted now for the
09:12
perjury stuff probably and then also you
09:15
have that former attorney general and
09:17
former Deputy Attorney General or both
09:20
both were excuse me both were former
09:21
Deputy Attorney General and US Attorney
09:23
General and that was rod Rosen Steve you
09:25
know Sally Yates I mean let’s let’s not
09:28
forget those are just a few if there
09:29
were other people who also signed those
09:31
things those were that’s the initial
09:33
FISA requests and then the three
09:35
extensions all of those throughout the
09:38
very beginning all of them knew
09:40
perfectly well that all of the
09:41
information was based on the steel
09:43
dossier and that steel dick dossier was
09:45
pure BS they all are documented to have
09:48
known it was BS but used it to request
09:51
the warrant of this FISA judge so that
09:54
that opens that’s fraud or perjury or
09:58
both in going forward making because
10:01
they had to assure that Judge they had
10:03
to testify to the what’s being in tained
10:05
in there to be based on intelligence and
10:07
to be true and correct both of all of
10:10
that was which is false there was no
10:11
intelligence in that the steel dossier
10:14
was a political document bought and paid
10:16
for by a political campaign
10:17
it was opposition research that is not
10:20
intelligence and then also they were
10:22
they were saying it’s true and they knew
10:24
it wasn’t so there that’s why it’s fraud
10:26
perjury probably both something along
10:29
those lines all that remains to be seen
10:30
that will come out eventually everybody
10:32
knows that’s coming everybody there’s no
10:35
you know mistaken confusion anything so
10:39
they’re trying to pre position
10:40
themselves to blame Trump for anything
10:41
and everything as you say throw us we
10:43
get at the wall throw mud at the wall
10:45
throw whatever they can throw to try and
10:47
make it stick now on this a couple of
10:49
very important details about what this
10:51
current thing is in Ukraine first of all
10:53
that guy that everybody is calling a
10:56
whistleblower that is factually
10:58
incorrect that person was never a
11:01
whistleblower that is wrong a
11:04
whistleblower
11:05
under the definition and this is how the
11:06
intelligence community works which is
11:08
everyone knows that’s my background out
11:10
of former CIA retired out of the CAA a
11:13
and the intelligence community so a
11:16
whistleblower is somebody who works
11:18
within the IC within the intelligence
11:20
community who sees something being done
11:22
wrong within the intelligence community
11:25
and he reports that to the authorities
11:27
because they’re doing something illegal
11:29
or wrong and more or whatever that then
11:32
has protection under the law that
11:34
whistleblower of that the way those laws
11:36
are written is is precisely that it
11:39
doesn’t say that you’re a whistleblower
11:41
if you report on the Supreme Court it
11:43
doesn’t say you’re a whistleblower if
11:45
you pour it on Congress it doesn’t say
11:46
you’re a whistleblower if you’re poured
11:48
on the president none of those things
11:49
you are only a whistleblower if you were
11:52
a IC person reporting on the IC that did
11:55
not happen
11:56
and so from the very beginning from them
11:59
first day this came out it was
12:01
illegitimate that person does not have
12:04
those protections under the law as a
12:06
whistleblower that person that then you
12:09
know and also it’s all false reporting
12:11
the person didn’t even have first-hand
12:13
access it was secondary access he heard
12:15
about what was said and then went and
12:17
reported this to the IG the IG is guy
12:21
named Michael had consent now here’s my
12:23
question Michael Atkinson then took that
12:25
did what normally he would be supposed
12:27
to do report it up to his boss which is
12:30
just mcguire was acting DNI director of
12:33
National Intelligence
12:33
this is his boss and the real question
12:37
is why did Act Kinnison take that and
12:39
say oh this is a valid complaint it
12:41
looks very reasonable and pass it on up
12:43
and then suddenly it ends up in the
12:44
hands of Congress it ends up in the
12:46
hands of the Washington Post and it’s
12:48
two paths that was all week so I would
12:51
look closely at Adkinson and personally
12:53
I would put him into the category
12:54
without really having looked at him
12:56
closely but I would put him into the
12:58
category of this this resistance
13:02
movement the anti-trump internal move
13:04
his background I was all Attorney
13:06
General stuff so he was working out of
13:08
those same offices with those same
13:10
people that were the guys that signed
13:12
this Phi sub a request so he’s out of
13:14
that same batch of people so I would say
13:18
this was all 100% politically motivated
13:21
the individual who’s the supposed
13:23
whistleblower is somebody who’s already
13:25
left the government so is somebody up
13:27
there probably an NSC heard about all
13:30
this stuff was looking for a chance to
13:32
try and screw over Trump made this
13:33
report Atkinson backed him up on it for
13:36
the same political motives so I think
13:38
this is a political hatchet job there’s
13:40
very little way that this can be
13:43
anything else now what’s being looked at
13:45
right now is you know or what yeah what
13:48
what’s being looked at is what
13:50
protection does that whistleblower have
13:52
if any if he can’t really be a
13:53
whistleblower
13:54
so does that guy’s identity come out do
13:56
we see you it was do we see that he’s a
13:58
political apparatchik if that does come
14:01
out I’m telling you right now that’s
14:03
what that guy is this is this is a
14:04
political hatchet job that guy had a
14:06
political motive for doing all of this
14:08
and Trump you know chunk didn’t do
14:11
anything there’s no illegal activity
14:13
thing that took place in the middle of
14:16
all of that so Trump is free and clearer
14:19
and they’re gonna try to spin this into
14:21
this or that or the other dope you know
14:23
it’s a typical con job they’re gonna say
14:25
see proof impeach but we need to impeach
14:27
okay what was the proof well you know he
14:30
asked for this and that and tit for tat
14:31
and quid pro quo and blah blah blah
14:33
where was it you know tell me you know
14:36
let’s see the phrase that was in that
14:38
conversation that you’re claiming is
14:39
illegal where is it and they they’re
14:42
never gonna say because there isn’t
14:43
anything like that this is all
14:45
politically motivated it’s all for
14:48
multiple reasons multiple layers to this
14:50
but it’s first of all to appeal to that
14:52
radical left-wing base that still cannot
14:55
adjust to the fact that Trump kicked
14:58
their rear ends in an election and has
15:00
just outdone them at every turn they
15:03
just can’t handle that and so you’ve got
15:05
this radical base that is the center
15:08
power of the Democratic Party nowadays
15:11
they have to have that boat and a lot of
15:13
these congressmen are worried about
15:15
being primary and kicked out and so
15:17
they’re they have to appeal to this base
15:19
that is just a plain fact of what’s
15:22
going on the other half of it is is they
15:24
see coming down the pike like I said all
15:26
of the problems out of this vice
15:27
investigation when all that hits they
15:30
have their only defense is to say well
15:32
you know you guys are guilty of this too
15:34
you president Trump has done X X X X X
15:36
and y ou Cavanaugh’s bad all this has
15:39
been at you you guys are guilty of all
15:40
the same stuff that’s their only defense
15:43
what else can they do
15:45
so that’s their only option and they’re
15:47
trying to build every case they can to
15:49
try and point to all of these things but
15:51
the problem is Trump’s better at all
15:54
this and they are Trump’s ahead of him
15:56
on every every step of the way and he’s
15:59
not guilty of any of this stuff so it’s
16:01
it’s backfiring to them because anyone
16:04
who’s not that radical which is a fairly
16:06
small percentage of the voters but
16:08
they’re the ones who vote in the
16:09
primaries all of the rest of those
16:12
people that are required to vote
16:13
Democrat and the main elections are
16:16
being turned off by this but the
16:18
Democrats are trapped they have no other
16:19
option because they have to win first in
16:22
the primaries in order to go to general
16:24
election and the only way to win in the
16:26
primaries is to appeal to this radical
16:28
bloc once the election comes I think
16:30
they’re gonna have a very very difficult
16:32
time I would say we’re looking at a
16:34
major catastrophe in the 2020 elections
16:37
coming up an easy win where you know but
16:40
a lot of things can happen between now
16:43
and and and November 2020 for the
16:47
elections but you know I right now this
16:50
could be a 40 state sweep for president
16:53
Trump under the what the circumstances
16:55
that we see developing and especially
16:56
when this legal stuff hits the you know
16:59
people are tired of being lied to we see
17:01
now the mainstream media we see doubt
17:03
Democratic politicians and we see it out
17:04
as some of the I what I call the Rhinos
17:07
the Republican in name only guys the
17:08
liberal Republicans are just as guilty
17:11
of a lot of this stuff they’re not
17:12
standing up for the president like they
17:14
need to be and it’s kind of a shame
17:16
because the president’s doing all the
17:18
stuff they’ve said they want to do all
17:19
along all the conservative things
17:21
you’re protecting in US interest
17:23
bringing jobs back bringing
17:24
manufacturing back you’ll low
17:26
unemployment all the things and being
17:28
very inclusive the lowest unemployment
17:30
rates for most of the minorities that
17:31
we’ve ever had and the poverty rates at
17:34
the lowest they’ve ever been for Latino
17:36
and black population the United States
17:38
and the lowest rates I’ve ever been so
17:40
it’s just it’s it’s it’s just craziness
17:43
if the Republicans aren’t backing him
17:44
but again he’s not their boy they don’t
17:46
like him so they would rather you know
17:49
lose than have president Trump succeed
17:51
it’s just it’s madness it’s yeah I see a
17:54
great deal of that I see a lot of people
17:56
I’ve even seen some fairly prominent
17:59
American public figures CNN figures and
18:02
so on publicly stated that they would
18:05
like to see the economy fail just so
18:07
people don’t vote for President Trump
18:09
and I’m thinking how much suffering of
18:12
regular folks would you like to see in
18:15
order to meet your abstract political
18:17
goals that’s really frightening well
18:19
that’s the problem with the left in
18:21
general is they just don’t view things
18:22
the way that any normal person would and
18:25
that’s that abstract thing where human
18:26
suffering doesn’t matter as long as
18:29
their political point is made and that’s
18:31
the socialist communist liberal leftist
18:35
philosophy is all the same worldwide and
18:37
that’s why you see these massive events
18:39
where you know in the last hundred years
18:42
you know including the two world wars
18:44
and stuff you’d see you know 100 million
18:47
people in the world have been
18:48
slaughtered and it’s always by the left
18:49
you’ll Nazis National Socialist German
18:53
Workers Party the Soviet Union Popo
18:56
Chairman Mao you know all these guys
18:58
they they’ll slaughter people by the
19:00
millions and they don’t care because it
19:03
makes their political point to have
19:05
these things go forward so they don’t
19:07
care and that’s precisely at the left
19:08
here is exactly the same they don’t care
19:10
about the misery the poverty or any of
19:12
that stuff as long as somehow their
19:14
political point is made and power
19:16
remains in their hands that’s that’s
19:18
that is what that is leftist
19:20
philosophies always ends up back it like
19:23
power and their hands and no one else’s
19:26
