Eric Swalwell Just Shut Down Stefanik’s Entire Anti-Impeachment Argument: Watch

It took Rep. Eric Swalwell (D-CA) just 15 seconds to take apart Rep. Elise Stefanik’s (R-NY) defense of Donald Trump during public impeachment hearings.

Stefanik tried to get Lt. Col. Alexander Vindman to claim that Trump only asked Ukraine for dirt on Biden to make sure they would fight corruption. She made a point of emphasizing delivering military aid to Ukraine requires ensuring that the country is working to root out corruption.

“You testified that you understood that Congress had passed, under the Ukrainian Security Assistance Initiative, a legal obligation to certify that corruption is being addressed?” she asked Vindman.

“That is correct,” he replied.

“So for the public listening, we are not just talking about President Trump focusing on anti-corruption in Ukraine,” she said. “But it is so critical, so important that when hard-earned taxpayer dollars are given to foreign nations that, by law, overwhelmingly bipartisan support requires anti-corruption in Ukraine in order to get U.S. taxpayer-funded aid.”

Shortly after Stefanik finished her questioning, Swalwell shut down her entire argument with one simple question to Vindman.

“Isn’t it true that the Department of Defense had certified that the anti-corruption requirements of Ukraine had been met when the hold was put on by the president?” Swalwell asked.

“That is correct,” he replied.
