As Twitchy reported Monday night, Rep. Lee Zeldin tweeted that the “shiny object” of a quid pro quo between President Trump and Ukraine had fallen apart, leaving the Democrats to come up with a new word for the day: extortion.

Hand in hand with extortion was the word “bribery,” which also must have been in the memo because Democratic senators kept using the word in interviews all day. Now, in an interview with NPR, Rep. Adam Schiff has changed tack and is now talking about bribery, not quid pro quo.

Nice glamour shot by NPR there.

It really is. But we’re not allowed to talk about that and there’s no way Schiff is going to honor the Republicans’ request to have Hunter Biden testify.
