Rosie O’Donnell was celebrating yesterday. The leftwing activist was so excited as Nancy Pelosi called for an impeachment inquiry, she ended up talking to her own TV and posting a video on social media. Well, poor Rosie got a rude awakening this morning as her celebration was cut short. You’ll love this.
The political Left in Hollywood exploded with joy on Tuesday after Speaker Nancy Pelosi announced the launch of a formal impeachment inquiry against President Donald Trump.
Rosie O’Donnell was overcome with excitement. She started talking to her TV as Nancy Pelosi made the announcement:

Rob Reiner was also celebrating Speaker Pelosi’s announcement. He posted on Twitter: “Here we go!”
Here we go!

As seasoned politicos pointed out yesterday, Nancy Pelosi pulled a head fake with this announcement. She duped those like Rosie O’Donnell and Rob Reiner into thinking this was the real deal: official impeachment proceedings.
The truth is Pelosi wasn’t doing anything that Chairman Jerry Nadler wasn’t already doing. Nadler had announced an impeachment inquiry a few weeks ago.
To officially start impeachment proceedings, the Democrats have to hold a vote. The fact is the Democrats don’t have enough votes. Congress is reluctant to pull the plug knowing it would damage re-election chances.
Making matters worse for the Trump-hater O’Donnell, this morning the president released the transcript from the Ukrainian phone call that the Democrats have pinned all their hopes on. The Democrats alleged yesterday Trump was threatening to withhold aid and was acting like a “mafia boss” if the Ukrainian President didn’t get dirt on Joe Biden.
Here’s the part in the transcript where Trump talks about Joe Biden:
Trump: … I just want to let you know that’s the other thing, There’s a lot of talk about Biden’s son, that Biden stopped the prosecution and a lot of people want to find out about that so whatever you can do with the Attorney General would be great. Biden went around bragging that he stopped the prosecution so if you can look into it … It sounds horrible to me.
President Zelenskyy: I wanted to tell you about the prosecutor. First of all, I understand and I’m knowledgeable about the situation. Since we have won the absolute majority in our Parliament; the next prosecutor general will be 100% my person, my candidate, who will be approved, by the parliament and will start as a new prosecutor in September. He or she will look into the situation, specifically to the company that you mentioned in this issue. The issue of the investigation of the case is actually the issue of making sure to restore the honesty so we will take care of that and will wortk on the investigation of the case.
First of all, you can read there is no “quid pro quo” that the Democrats promised. Trump did not mention any aid. Trump was not using threatening words. Trump has a right to ask about potential crimes committed by Joe Biden and his son. Trump isn’t asking for “dirt” or untruths.
Rosie hasn’t said a word since the transcript came out. Neither has Rob Reiner. It looks like their celebration is over.
The Democrats also look like utter fools. In fact, it’s another part of the conversation that is causing an awful lot of indigestion within Democratic circles today. Trump talks about Crowdstrike, who the Democrats hired to examine their servers after they claimed they (DNC) got hacked in July 2016.
“I would like you to do us a favor though because our country has been through a lot and Ukraine knows a lot about it. I would like you to find out what happened with this whole situation with Ukraine, they say Crowdstrike…The server, they say Ukraine has it,” Trump said.
Remember, Hillary Clinton and the DNC refused to have any law enforcement agency examine their servers. Many sources close to the DNC claimed the servers were never really hacked. It was a ruse in part to jump-start the entire bogus Trump-Russia investigation. The president is trying to find out about the 2016 election meddling-scheme. It has nothing to do with this upcoming election.
“Will the Democrats apologize after seeing what was said on the call with the Ukrainian President? They should, a perfect call – got them by surprise!” tweeted President Trump today.

“The transcript debunked everything Democrats claimed Trump did. Democrats claimed Trump: Withheld funds, Demanded an investigation, Mentioned 8 times the Biden family, Offered a quid pro quo. None of those things are in the transcript. Schiff is either lying or is delusional,” tweeted Daily Wire reporter Ryan Saavedra.

“Hysterical watching all the sky-is-falling lunatics in the media, along with their liberal allies, start to move all the goal posts now that the nothing-burger of a transcript was released. SUCKERS!” tweeted Dan Bongino, the Fox News contributor.

“And let’s be clear: The ‘favor’ [Trump] is asking is that Ukraine look backward, at 2016 election meddling. Which isn’t inappropriate, given we just spent two years doing the same. Only later, after Zelensky brings up Giuliani and ‘that investigation,’ does Trump mention Biden,” tweeted Kimberly Strassel, the Wall Street Journal reporter.

Those who were overjoyed with Nancy Pelosi’s impeachment announcement yesterday are now suddenly silent.
Those poor Trump-haters got a double whammy. They come to find out Speaker Pelosi pulled a fast one on them, as she failed to launch official impeachment proceedings, and then this morning they learn the Ukrainian transcript is a big nothing-burger.
Sure, the Democrats are all posturing as if they found the Holy Grail with the transcript, but what else can they do? They went all-in on the transcript promising the smoking gun against Trump. Not only was there no smoking gun but the phone call points to the deep state rats and their dirty deeds and former Vice-President Joe Biden’s past corruption. President Trump is looking for the truth, and we have no doubt it will set the American people free.
