Bombshell Report Completely Discredits Main Democrat Impeachment Witness And Proves He Intentionally Lied
Since the beginning of the impeachment hearings Andriy Yermak, a top adviser to the President of Ukraine, has heard his name come up over and over again in witnesses testimony; and quite frankly he’s sick of it. Time Magazine sat down with Yermak and he wanted to set the record straight.
“Listen, I want to tell you straight,” Yermak told TIME in the interview on Dec. 4, the first time he has openly discussed his views on the public impeachment hearings. “Of course, now, when I watch these shows on television, my name often comes up, and I see people there whom I recognize, whom I met and know,” he says, referring to the witness testimony. “That is their personal opinion, especially the positions they expressed while under oath. I have my own truth. I know what I know.”
The story that Yermak tells completely contradicts one of the main witnesses the Democrats asked to testify during the impeachment hearings, Gordon Sondland the US Ambassador to the European Union. Time Magazine reports:
The most crucial point at which Yermak’s recollection contradicts the testimony of the inquiry’s witnesses relates to a meeting in Warsaw on Sept. 1, when Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky met with U.S. Vice President Mike Pence. The meeting was part of an ongoing effort by the Zelensky administration to improve ties with the Trump administration.
Sondland attened the meeting and testified before Congress last month that he had a side meeting with Yermak after the Warsaw meeting and delivered a message: US aid to Ukraine would probably not resume until Zelensky’s government announce two investigation that could implicate President Trump’s political rivals. Here are his exact words:
“I told Mr. Yermak that I believed that the resumption of U.S. aid would likely not occur until Ukraine took some kind of action on the public statement that we had been discussing for many weeks,” Sondland testified.
Supposedly, the two investigations were that Ukraine helped Hillary in 2016 and the other about Hunter Biden. Based off that testimony and other “witnesses” (liars) the report from Rep. Adam Schiff confirmed there was a quid pro quo. “Following this meeting, Ambassador Sondland pulled aside President Zelensky’s advisor, Mr. Yermak, to explain that the hold on security assistance was conditioned on the public announcement of the Burisma/Biden and the 2016 election interference investigations,” the report said.
Yermak told Time this is completely false.
“Gordon and I were never alone together,” he said when TIME asked about the Warsaw meeting. “We bumped into each other in the hallway next to the escalator, as I was walking out.” He recalls that several members of the American and Ukrainian delegations were also nearby, as well as bodyguards and hotel staff, though he was not sure whether any of them heard his brief conversation with Sondland. “And I remember – everything is fine with my memory – we talked about how well the meeting went. That’s all we talked about,” Yermak says.
Yermak’s comments definitely put a shadow over a major portion of the Democrats report and Sondland’s lawyers refute Yermak. However, Sondland ended up revising his testimony. Time Magazine report states:
In his initial testimony to the impeachment inquiry in October, Sondland said he never knew the U.S. aid to Ukraine was conditional on the investigations Trump wanted. But the following month, Sondland amended his testimony with a new sworn statement, in which he described the conversation with Yermak in Warsaw. “I now recall speaking individually with Mr. Yermak, where I said that resumption of U.S. aid would likely not occur until Ukraine provided the public anti-corruption statement that we had been discussing for many weeks,” Sondland wrote in the amended testimony.
Legal experts said at the time that the amendment looked like an attempt to protect Sondland from accusations that his initial testimony had misled Congress.
So basically behind closed doors, Sondland said there was no quid pro quo but, when it came time for the public hearings he changed his tune to fit the Democrats narrative. In case you were wondering lying to Congress is a crime and could be punishable to up to five years imprisonment.
Yermak also disclosed that not one person from the impeachment process has reached out to him. You would think Shify Adam Schiff would ask Yermak to testify considering he’s a major part of the House Intelligence Committees report.
I encourage you to read the entire report by Time Magazine it’s a doozy and you can be sure Senate Republicans are going to make sure this all gets brought up in the Senate trial. The Democrats have no idea the hell they are about to go through.
