The second day of Democrat impeachment theater featured testimony from former U.S. Ambassador to Ukraine Marie Yovanovitch.
Democrats and the media thought this was a big deal, but most people would disagree.
The best moment came when Rep. Chris Stewart of Utah asked two simple questions that summed up the pointlessness of the entire affair.
FOX News has details:
Chris Stewart takedown of Yovanovitch shows Democrats have ‘no case,’ GOP says
From the view of the White House and some top Republicans, U.S. Rep. Chris Stewart’s questioning of former U.S. Ambassador to Ukraine Marie Yovanovitch on Friday was the point where House Democrats’ impeachment argument showed the party had “no case” against President Trump.
During Friday’s public hearings, Yovanovitvh told Stewart, a Utah Republican on the House Intelligence Committee, that she could supply the panel with no information regarding criminal activity or bribes that President Trump may have been involved with.
Stewart: “I would now feel compelled to ask you, Madam Ambassador, as you sit here before us, very simply and directly, do you have any information regarding the president of the United States accepting any bribes?”
Stewart: “Do you have any information regarding any criminal activity that the president of the United States has been involved with at all?”
Stewart thanked Yovanovitch before predicting that public support for impeachment would decrease after the hearings.
“The American people know this is nonsense,” Stewart said. “The American people know this is unfair.”

That’s it in a nutshell, folks.
Is there any better representation of how pointless these proceedings are?
