QUOTES OF THE WEEK

“Likewise, China should start an investigation into the Bidens, because what happened to China is just about as bad as what happened with Ukraine.”
President Trump

“This is the reason you love Trump. This president, the point is, will not be intimidated. Whatever it is that upsets them, he doubles down on it, and gives ’em another dose of it while telling the truth. But this is the stuff he does that just coalesces his support with his voters and his base. This is the stuff he does that they love. This is the pushback. This is the real guy who says what he really thinks unfiltered, that makes Trump so approachable and likable to so many people.”
Rush Limbaugh

“His lies were made in perhaps the most blatant and sinister manner ever seen in the great Chamber. He wrote down and read terrible things, then said it was from the mouth of the President of the United States. I want Schiff questioned at the highest level for Fraud & Treason.”
A tweet by President Trump

“I can’t believe we’re talking about impeaching the president based on an accusation based on hearsay. Who is this whistleblower? What bias do they have? Why did they pick this whistleblower to tell a hearsay story? The transcript does not match the complaint. What’s going on here? Why did they change the rules about a whistleblower you can use hearsay when you could not just weeks before the complaint?”
Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC) during an interview with CBS anchor Margaret Brennan

“Democrats are more upset that Trump discovered what took place with the Bidens and wanted to get to the bottom of it than they are about the swampy behavior Joe and Hunter displayed.”
Beth Baumann is an Associate Editor for Townhall

“On the one hand, it’s bad because this impeachment garbage is bad for the country. The damage it is doing to our institutions – really, that our institutions are doing to themselves in their shameful service of the liberal elite’s power grabs – is incalculable. Remember 10 years ago when we conservatives trusted and respected the FBI and our intelligence community? Good times. Well, that’s over. It will be decades before a woke Republican is stupid enough to trust them again.

“But on the other hand, we now have an opportunity to exploit their strategic blunder in order to rip them apart next November. We have a chance to teach the Democrats, to the extent they are trainable, that their socialist-curious, corporatist nanny state dreams are electoral strychnine.”
Blogger Kurt Schlichter

“Where is Hunter Biden right now, anyway? If we had an actual media that wasn’t a garbage coterie of Democratic transcriptionists, we’d be seeing a dozen TV vans parked outside whatever flophouse he’s squatting in right about now.

“Impeachment is all fun and games for now. Schiff is in the spotlight and loving it. The media is collectively wetting itself. And the House is going to eventually vote 218 to 217 – Nancy will give as many purples a pass as she can – to pull the trigger. And then it will go over to the Murder Turtle’s lair and the first thing that Senate Majority Leader McConnell will do is issue a subpoena to Hunter Biden to come chat at the trial. That will be fun.”
Blogger Kurt Schlichter

“She’s (Nancy Pelosi)  not doing anything for the American people,” Boyce said. “And this impeachment that she’s trying to push, it’s ridiculous. The country doesn’t want impeachment. All it’s doing is make people fight against each other and that’s all she’s accomplishing.”
Joan Boyce, 65, of Greenville, South Carolina, who protested outside Pelosi’s appearance as the featured speaker at a S.C. Democratic Party’s fundraiser

“I think the gutsiest thing I’ve ever done — well, personally — make the decision to stay in my marriage.”
Hillary Clinton in an interview on “Good Morning America”

The Democrats are now Woodstock on steroids. Get free stuff; smoke all the pot you want; watch all the porn you want; kill all the babies you want; change your God-given sex if you want. We’ll even rig the law to force others to pretend with you. Just don’t complain when we run the rest of your lives.”
Robert Knight is a frequent Townhall.com contributor
