Democrats to Settle for Apology and Censure for Pres. Trump/No Impeachment?

If I were a betting person, and I never bought a lottery ticket, I think I know how this Seinfeld Impeachment hearing ends (Seinfeld was a TV show about nothing/Schiff hearings are also about nothing).  After the hearings are over, San Fran Nan will announce to save the nation from the “trauma” of a Senate trial, he will recommend a Resolution of censure against President Trump.

What she really means is that in a Republican Senate the witnesses would include Barack Obama, Joe and Hunter Biden, Adam Schiff, the “whistleblower” and more.  This would explode the Democrat Party for a generation—the massive corruption during the Obama Administration would become public.

Now, in a hint of this, we have the radical, irrational Democrat tin foil hat wearing Congressman Ted Lieu is saying an apology from Trump would suffice!  Watch as other Democrats begin to offer compromises to a Senate trial.  Seinfeld, ur I mean Schiff will have no choice and the Dems want to survive this massive blunder.

“But, says Rep. Lieu, if the President apologized, showed remorse and promised not to solicit foreign interference in future elections, impeachment might just be avoided. 

Lieu would NOT have offered this remedy on a radio show without first getting approval from Pelosi and other Democrat House leaders.  He is waving the white flag!  They give up.

KNX EXCLUSIVE: Rep. Ted Lieu Says if President Trump Apologizes Impeachment Might be Avoided

KNX 1070, 11/20/19 

In an exclusive interview with KNX 1070 News, a prominent Manhattan Beach Democratic Congressman lays out a way to possibly head-off the impeachment of President Trump.

Rep. Ted Lieu, a Democrat from Manhattan Beach, tells KNX that President Trump has given the House of Representatives little choice but to move forward on impeachment, given the layers of testimony that show a pressure campaign on Ukraine to investigate former Vice President Joe Biden and his family. 

But, says Rep. Lieu, if the President apologized, showed remorse and promised not to solicit foreign interference in future elections, impeachment might just be avoided. 

Rep. Lieu sits on the House Judiciary Committee, which will have to write and pass the formal articles of impeachment.

Congressman Lieu will be on KNX In-Depth at 1 p.m. PST Wednesday.

At the moment, Ambassador Godron Sondland is testifying before the House investigators.  He revised his closed-door testimony from October earlier this month. 

“Mr. Giuliani was expressing the desires of the president of the United States, and we knew that these investigations were important to the president,” Sondland said in his testimony Wednesday morning, saying President Trump’s personal lawyer, Rudy Giuliani was pushing a “quid pro quo” with Ukraine.

He said he had kept all the top officials, including Vice President Pence and Secretary of State Mike Pompeo in the loop, raising concerns with Pence. With Pence, he said he was concerned that the aid offerd to Ukraine would be tied to the investigations into the Bidens.

“Everyone was in the loop,” he said in his opening remarks Wednesday morning.

Sondland’s testimony comes at the heels of other public impeachment hearings this week and last week, including former U.S. Ambassador to Ukraine Marie Yovanovitch who testified for about five hours, telling Congress about a smear campaign against her from Trump allies.

    It’s Not a White Flag! It’s a trap! As soon as Pres Trump apologized, dems would jump on that like a rodeo rider and off dems would be to the Senate with phony ‘admission of guilt’

    • Michael J Quick says

      I don’t think President Trump SHOULD OR WOULD EVER apologize. Not in his nature and you are right it would be a mistake!

  2. Rico Lafattuta says

    I do not foresee President Trump apologizing for something he claims did not happen and something he did not have any participation in. This would destroy his chances for reelection. Pie in the sky wish from Dems.

  3. They say “everyone” know that the President was holding aid hostage. Really??? What did Obama do? Refused aid to an invaded country.

    They say Trump is guilty but have NO witness that is willing to say that he / she heard the President say it.

    They say Trump is guilty but everyone that talked directly to the President about the issue say he stated there was no hostage taking of aid.

    So how do you Democrats state there is clear evidence of criminal activity? How do you Democrats refuse to slap Obama in the head for allowing Ukrainians to die while Russian invaded them.

    How do you Democrats call yourselves honest?

  4. The Senate needs to bring Obama, Hillary and Joe & Son! They need to expose the Democrat’s for what they really are! Criminals!

    • YES, WE NEED THE SENATE TO DO THIS!

    • Matthew Barone says

      Gigantic agreement in exposing them ! The radical Democrat leadership tyrants have been making decisions to place their power and interests above hardworking Americans.
      My Congressman Adam Schiff conducted himself as an absolute autocratic ruler, judge and jury over these hearings.

    Mr Frank is most likely correct. The felonies of the demoRat party in a Senate trial would be on FULL DISPLAY. The trial would include Obola and his felonious henchmen and women. They can now say they got him Impeached and use it for their losing campaigns for President. Apparently, Shifty and his crooks went out last night and got hammered drunk in celebration of the successful farce.. President Trump will NOT apologize as the didn’t do a darn thing wrong..

  6. Censure and an apology from Trump? I think that they are asking for a sensure and apology from the wrong person. The Democrats owe Trump the apology and censureship. Take the impeachment vote. Supoena the whistleblower, Shifthy Shiff, the Bidens, etc. Send the case to tne senate for the trial. The democtats have commited treason and weaponized the impeachment process. Don’t forget. The Horowitz and Durham reports are about to be released. The reports will not be good news for the democratic party, and some of the participants of the Russian collusion hoax are going to be indicted. This is “Texas Hold-em Poker”. Trump should push all the money all the table and call their bluff. Hell, the democrats don’t have the winning hand in this one. They are finished. What a bunch of fools. I feel sorry for the people they represent in their home districts.

  7. Marc L Palmarini says

    Why should he apologize for because he didn’t do anything wrong.

  8. What makes anyone think that Trump will apologize? To anyone, but especially to Democrats? That whole idea is a non-starter.

  9. marilyn chatham says

    President Trump owes no apology. The Dems are tricky and dishonest, I think our President is too wise to fall in their trap. I personally do NOT trust Schiff and his committee.
