Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News
Sunday, November 17, 2019

The House Intelligence Committee is called that for good reason: It oversees intelligence matters. But President Donald Trump's defenders on the committee think it's their job to insult our intelligence. One of their more novel defenses of how Trump dealt with Ukraine is that he was implacably determined to root out corruption in that country. For sheer gall, that claim is hard to beat. It's as though Bill Clinton had rebutted allegations of an affair with Monica Lewinsky by claiming to be a virgin. It's not just that Trump is personally corrupt, as he had to admit recently in settling a lawsuit that required him to shut down his foundation and pay a fine of $2 million. Last year, he also had to pay $25 million to settle lawsuits by students who said they were defrauded by Trump University.

"I said, I'm telling you, you're not getting the billion dollars.' I said, You're not getting the billion. I'm going to be leaving here in,' I think it was about six hours. I looked at them and said: I'm leaving in six hours. If the prosecutor is not fired, you're not getting the money.' Well, son of a bitch. [Laughter.] He got fired. And they put in place someone who was solid at the time."
