If you’ve been following The Conservative Treehouse during this three-year-long effort to take out President Trump, you are well familiar with Elise Stefanik (R-NY). She’s the young Representative on the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence who backed James Comey into a corner during his March 2017 testimony.
Thanks to Stefanik, we learned that Comey deliberately bypassed standard operating procedure and kept Congress in the dark on the so-called “investigation” of Donald Trump.
Elise Stefanik has an uncanny ability to strip away the BS and get to the nub of the matter.
Which may explain why during the non-witness testimony of disgruntled former Ambassador Marie Yovanovitch, Adam Schiff continually shut Stefanik down.
Not that it did any good.
When Elise Stefanik finally had some time to ask questions, she once again stripped away the BS and exposed the non-witness as a liar.
In her opening statement, Yovanovitch made this claim:
”I have never met Hunter Biden, nor have I had any direct or indirect conversations with him. And although I have met former Vice President Biden several times over the course of our many years in government, neither he nor the previous Administration ever raised the issue of either Burisma or Hunter Biden with me.”
Then when Stefanik finally had a chance to question the disgruntled former ambassador, she got Yovanovitch to admit the opposite.
I especially liked the way Stefanik indulged in the same flattery and praise the Democrats used when fawning all over this disgruntled former ambassador. My guess is, given the lofty sense of self-importance Yovanovitch displayed throughout the hearing, this flattery completely disarmed her for what was coming next.
Without even realizing it, Stefanik got Yovanovitch to acknowledge that her opening statement was a lie.
The “previous Administration” absolutely “raised the issue” of Burisma and Hunter Biden with her.
Ironic, isn’t it? Elise Stefanik got Yovanovitch to contradict her own sworn testimony on the very same day Roger Stone was found guilty of lying to Congress.
Stefanik also hammered Adam Schiff as if she was the one wielding the gavel. And it was absolutely Schadenfreuderrific.
I know you are rightly not bothering to watch this but you should definitely listen @EliseStefanik when Schifff finally allowed her to speak. Listen and learn what a sham this is.

Schiff’s arrogance and obsessive need for media fawning are his weakness – mostly because he is incredibly reckless and irresponsible with what he says when the cameras are rolling. Elise Stefanik using that very weakness and jamming Schiff’s own words down his throat was masterful.
Just look at his face. Deep in that lizard brain of his, Adam is already trying to figure out how to spin this during his next appearance on CNN and MSNBC.
It’s a wonder his eyes weren’t bugging out of his head.
Naturally the media is already working to destroy Elise Stefanik. And that pretty much tells me all I need to know.
In fact, the very same media outlets that couldn’t get enough of Elizabeth Warren being “silenced” by Mitch McConnell are cheering over Schiff repeatedly shutting down Stefanik’s attempts to question the non-witness. Because, of course they are.
But as they always say, “If you’re getting flak, you know you’re over the target.”
Elise Stefanik is tearing the impeachment narrative to shreds. That’s bad for Adam Schiff. But it is doubly bad for the corporate news media that is fully invested in taking out Donald Trump by banging the impeachment drums.
That’s why, despite Republicans like Stefanik exposing the sheer stupidity of having a disgruntled former ambassador who witnessed absolutely nothing being cast in the role of “star witness,” the media is acting as if Yovanovitch’s testimony was a game-changer.
And while the media blusters and cheers pretending that “this time we got him!” most people outside of the media bubble who aren’t dyed-in-the-wool ResistanceLOL know this sham impeachment isn’t going well for Adam Schiff and the Democrats.
Trump’s approval numbers continue to climb; and his campaign continues to haul in contributions from small-money donors.
Meanwhile, every day Republicans are given an opportunity to tell a national audience about the actual corruption vis-à-vis Ukraine: Joe Robinette Biden – something Julie Kelly pointed out in her column yesterday: Impeachment Inquiry is bad for Biden.
Every witness thus far has acknowledged the concerns the Obama State Department had over Hunter Biden’s dealings with Burisma. And who was one of the Republicans getting that information from the witnesses?
As Sean Davis of the Federalist said yesterday on Twitter, Stefanik is “a one-woman impeachment wrecking crew.”
Is it any wonder Adam Schiff and his media handmaids want to shut her up?
