Facts from Ukraine testify against Pelosi-Schiff witch hunt

Nov. 20, 2019, Fairfax, Va.—Americans for Limited Government President Rick Manning today issued the following statement in response to reports that Ukraine has expanded the criminal investigation of Burisma and that the investigation has been underway for almost two years:

“Ukraine’s confirmation that the Burisma investigation has been expanded has made three things abundantly clear. First, President Zelensky and others have unequivocally said they felt no pressure by the U.S. to investigate the corrupt natural gas firm Burisma or anyone associated with that firm. Second, Ukraine officials have made it clear they had no knowledge military assistance to Ukraine was under scrutiny until an Aug. 29 Politico report broke the news. Third, today’s report that Ukraine prosecutors are expanding their  investigation into Burisma, and that the investigation has been ongoing for almost two years, alleging millions of Ukrainian funds had been stolen by the company is proof that unless President Trump has a time machine, he did not initiate the probe.

“The Pelosi-Schiff impeachment sham rests on a charge of coercion or bribery for something we now know was already taking place, and which those who were purportedly coerced felt no pressure because they were aware that the Burisma investigation had been underway for more than a year. Pelosi and Schiff may go down in history as Congress’ equivalent of Abbott and Costello, with the exception that their confusion and misunderstanding doesn’t lead to hilarity, but rather calamity.”
