Rep. Chris Stewart appeared on Sunday’s broadcast of ABC’s “This Week,” where he pushed back on the idea that evidence against President Donald Trump in the House Dems impeachment inquiry is “mounting.”
In contrast, Stewart believes House Dems are in “trouble” and evidence against President Trump is “crumbling.”
Stewart said, “I don’t think the evidence is building at all–and I’m being sincere on this–I think the evidence is crumbling.”
He added, “I think the Democrats know they’re in trouble, that’s why they keep moving the goalposts. We went from some supposed quid pro quo and as you said tying the investigations to withholding military aid, but we know that didn’t happen. Now Mrs. Pelosi said we’re going to impeach and remove the president for bribery.”
Here is the clip that Stewart alludes to in which he questions former U.S. ambassador to Ukraine Marie Yovanovitch about whether she had direct evidence of any potentially impeachable offense.
As Stewart noted at the end of the video, support for impeachment would be less by the end of the hearings than it was before they began. It looks like that might end up being true.
What are your thoughts on this? Do you agree with Rep. Chris Stewart?
