This summer, impeachment Democrats tried stirring up passion for impeachment by having Robert Mueller testify. That was a historic failure, with Mueller essentially admitting that he didn’t write the report with his name on it. The Democrats’ next failure was with the Lewandowski hearing. At that hearing, Lewandowski toyed with Chairman Nadler to such an extent that it cost Nadler his opportunity to shine as chairman of the impeachment hearings.

This NY Post editorial proves that practice doesn’t always make perfect:

Democrats must have learned from the disastrous public hearings they’ve held in their attempt to impeach President Trump: Now, apparently, their witnesses must audition first behind closed doors before they go live before the TV cameras.

That was the case with the Dems’ “star” witnesses, US Chargé d’affaires for Ukraine Bill Taylor and Deputy Assistant Secretary of State George Kent, who testified behind closed doors before appearing for Wednesday’s televised impeachment show. And for former US Ambassador to Ukraine Marie Yovanovitch, who debuts on the small screen Friday.

Kent, Taylor and Yovanovitch are leading off the Democrats’ case for impeachment. The thing that they’ve got in common is that none of them have firsthand knowledge of what happened. They can offer opinions on what US foreign policy should be but that’s it. Policy differences between the President and career bureaucrats doesn’t amount to an impeachable offense. In fact, it isn’t close to that threshold.

The lesson to be learned is that this is the wimpiest set of facts ever to be considered for impeachment. Last night, it was reported that Ukrainian Foreign Minister Vadym Prystaiko told reporters that “Ambassador Sondland did not tell us, and did not tell me exactly, about the relation between the [military] assistance and the investigations. I have never seen a direct link between investigations and security assistance. Yes, investigations were mentioned, you know, in a presidential conversation. But there was no clear connection between these events.”

That’s firsthand information on the central issue of the Democrats’ case. It utterly demolishes the Democrats’ theory that President Trump tried extorting or bribing President Zelenskiy into investigating Joe and Hunter Biden. This Trump-hater should ride off into the sunset because she’s a bitter partisan:

The truth is that Democrats simply don’t have evidence to support their impeachment theory. Though they won’t admit it, it’s getting close to the time when the jury cries out ‘Game. Set. Match.’ Get out the jelly, folks. These Democrats are toast.
