It turns out Ron Johnson's new report on the Bidens is even more buffoonish than we thought. The GOP's own star witness -- George Kent -- actually blew up the whole Hunter/Ukraine narrative in testimony to the committee itself! From me and @paulwaldman1 :

Nutshell: 87 pages filled with same unsubstantiated allegations peddled for months, as well as public testimony of US officials like George Kent that we already knew about. Plus controversial news articles, such as the infamous 2017 Politico one, used to back Republicans' claims.

BREAKING: Judicial Watch received State Dept records including a 1/17/17 email from George Kent, the Obama-era dep asst sec state for Ukraine policy, which he sent to then-U.S. Amb Yovanovitch about media “trolling” #Biden  over “his son’s business,”(1/3).

The racist imagery of 'Gator Bait' had been burning inside Leonard Spearman for years, but the timing wasn't right. That changed for the 66-year-old great grandson of a slave and UF president Kent Fuchs after George Floyd's death.

Brief, vague @StateDept  readout of Deputy Secretary of State Stephen Biegun’s visit to Moscow yesterday. Says only that he “discussed the full range of bilateral and regional issues” with Lavrov, Ryabkov, and Morgulov. Biegun, accompanied by George Kent, will be in Kyiv today.

Interview: Senior U.S. Diplomat George Kent On Relations With #Belarus  Ahead Of The Country's Presidential Election

A Senate committee investigating Joe Biden’s son has secured a deposition with a high-level State Department official, George Kent, who was a star impeachment witness against President Trump

George Kent’s promotion comes the same week that another star witness in the impeachment trial, Lt. Col. Alexander Vindman, resigned after a 21-year career in the Army following a “campaign of bullying,” according to his lawyer.

George Kent's job standing and promotion were seen by some diplomats as a bellwether for how far political retaliation would go inside the State Department in the aftermath of impeachment, FP's @RobbieGramer  and @ak_mack  write.

Some of the people I'm thankful for this year: Lt Col Alexander Vindman Marie Yovanovitch Fiona Hill George Kent Jennifer Williams Bill Taylor Nancy Pelosi Adam Schiff Their commitment to speaking truth and public service gives me hope for our future.

Notably, Trump managed to stay silent during the testimonies of George Kent and Bill Taylor. But as soon as a powerful woman took the stand, he couldn't keep his mouth shut. Disgraceful.

NEW: GEORGE KENT, a career @StateDept  official who is now testifying on the Hill, warned colleagues as far back as March about RUDY GIULIANI's role in what he called a “disinformation” campaign using a Ukrainian prosecutor to smear BIDEN, YOVANOVITCH, etc.

Here’s why George Kent matters: He and his colleagues recognized the impropriety of Trump’s Ukraine pressure campaign to undertake politically-motivated investigations. He corroborates testimony from numerous other officials, and he documented it. Read:

WATCH LIVE: @HouseIntel  public hearing with Ambassador Bill Taylor and George Kent. They will testify about Trump's efforts to pressure Ukraine to investigate the Bidens, and the effect it had on our national security:

Next week, the House Intelligence Committee will hold its first open hearings as part of the impeachment inquiry. On Wednesday, November 13, 2019, we will hear from William Taylor and George Kent. On Friday, November 15, 2019, we will hear from Marie Yovanovitch. More to come.

hard for a fair-minded person watching these hearings to conclude anything other than that Marie Yovanovitch, George Kent and William Taylor are model public servants

Interesting fact I learned today but Media isn’t covering. Dems’ star witnesses, Deputy Assistant Secretary for European & george kent'>Eurasian Affairs George Kent, admitted in testimony on Nov. 13 that the Ukrainian natural gas firm, Burisma Holdings, is corrupt, & should be investigated!

NEWS: The State Department and White House tried to block George Kent from appearing -- so the House Intel Committee subpoenaed him, according to a source working on the impeachment inquiry. He is complying with the subpoena. This is Yovanovitch all over again.
