• That Expression When You’re ‘Sucking Lemons’? See Democrats, Last Week

    Surge Summary: A witness before last week’s House Intelligence Committee didn’t tell the Democrats what they wanted to hear about President Trump — but the press tried to spin it another way.

    Tim Morrison, the senior director of European and Russian affairs at the National Security Council, testified before Rep. Adam Schiff’s kangaroo court [Thursday].  Morrison’s appearance before the House Intelligence Committee was newsworthy for several reasons.

    First, Morrison was one of the officials who was authorized to listen in on President Trump’s call with the Ukrainian leader, so he has first-hand knowledge of what was said.  He also announced that he was leaving his NSC position prior to his testimony.

    That announcement was treated by the media as a major bombshell.  Virtually every outlet ran damning headlines like this one:  “Top NSC Russia Official To Step Down Ahead Of Impeachment Testimony.”

    It seemed as if reporters were expecting Morrison to spill the beans and betray Trump.  That’s not what happened.

    In his testimony, Morrison told lawmakers:  “I want to be clear, I was not concerned that anything illegal was discussed.”  Did you heard that on the evening news?

    But Morrison did have concerns about the call.  And, of course, the fake news media tried to portray Morrison’s concerns as trouble for Trump, reinforcing the testimony of the president’s critics.  Again, they were wrong.

    Morrison was concerned that aspects of the call would leak out (he was right about that!), and he was concerned about “how it would play out in Washington’s polarized environment.”  In other words, Morrison knew that Deep State partisans would leak the classified call and twist Trump’s words.

    And that’s exactly what the so-called “whistleblower” did, which triggered this entire impeachment sham.

    Commenting on Morrison’s testimony, Rep. Mark Meadows (R-NC), said, “Some of my Democrat colleagues look like they’re sucking lemons this morning.”
