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.
Dems have a new word of the day: “extortion”. The shiny object of “quid pro quo” totally fell apart on them. Same problem though w/their new shiny object: Ukraine didn’t know there was a hold on aid until just before it was lifted. They didn’t have to do anything to get it lifted

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.
Rep. Adam Schiff, chairman of the House Intelligence Committee, tells NPR that he sees several potential impeachable offenses committed by President Trump — including bribery. https://t.co/V2Fjol3mfp pic.twitter.com/dCzvwqb58i

He also said he had the goods on collusion with Russia….he can EAD!

Remember the one where he had “Proof of Russian Collusion “ and the media outlets believed him. That’s my favorite @RepAdamSchiff

What about his top secret Russian collusion evidence he's been talking about for 3 years

"@RepAdamSchiff tells NPR that he sees several potential impeachable offenses committed by President Trump — including bribery" …. I'd bet $100 that the actual charges in any "Impeachment Indictment" the House votes on does NOT include bribery … @SpeakerPelosi @lawcrimenews

You sure he doesn’t mean Biden? The video is pretty convincing.

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.
NPR has become a branch of the DNC and Democrat Overlord Party.
Sad, NPR used to be a reliable news source before it became fake news.
