    Trump's Biggest Whoppers

    Fact check: Trump falsely claims 'we have no soldiers in Syria' The US still has about 1,000 soldiers in Syria, military officials have told CNN and other news outlets, and the troops Trump removed from the area of the Turkish incursion offensive were not removed from the country. Jonathan Hoffman, chief Pentagon spokesman, said in a statement on Tuesday: "We have made no changes to our force presence in Syria at this time." Less than an hour after Trump made his Thursday claim that there are "no soldiers in Syria," a senior State Department official told reporters that the US military mission in Syria is ongoing. "We had and still have a significant military mission there to ensure the enduring defeat of ISIS, also to maintain the stability of northeast Syria and the region..... https://www.cnn.com/2019/10/10/politics/trump-fact-check-no-soldiers-in-syria/index.html

    Shimon Prokupecz @ShimonPro Story: Trump is calling Mitch McConnell as often as three times a day. Trump has been lashing out at GOP senators he sees as disloyal, telling McConnell he will amplify attacks on those Republicans who criticize him. Trump warns GOP Senate leader Mitch McConnell about disloyal Republicans ......Trump has been lashing out at GOP senators he sees as disloyal, according to the person familiar with the conversations, telling McConnell he will amplify attacks on those Republicans who criticize him. McConnell faces his own dilemma of having to preserve the Republican majority in the Senate, while also placating an erratic President who demands nothing short of total loyalty. That will become harder as more details about Trump's dealings with Ukraine trickle out...... https://www.cnn.com/2019/10/09/politics/donald-trump-impeachment-mitch-mcconnell/index.html

    Trump's Biggest Whoppers

    @NBCNews President Trump lashes out over Fox News poll that shows majority support for his impeachment: "Whoever their Pollster is, they suck." "......@FoxNews doesn’t deliver for US anymore. It is so different than it used to be." "Oh well, I’m President!" he added. ...... Of those surveyed, 51 percent said they want Trump impeached and removed from office, while another 4 percent say they would like Trump impeached but not removed. On the flip side, 40 percent of voters said they oppose impeachment. Support for Trump's impeachment and removal jumped 9 points from July, increasing 11 points among Democrats, 5 points among Republicans and 3 points among independents. Fox News found increased support for Trump's impeachment among white evangelicals, white men without a college degree and rural white voters. ....... https://www.nbcnews.com/politics/donald-trump/trump-lashes-out-over-fox-news-poll-shows-majority-support-n1064556?cid=sm_npd_nn_tw_ma

  12. Two Giuliani Associates Who Helped Him on Ukraine Charged With Campaign-Finance Violations Prosecutors say Lev Parnas and Igor Fruman were part of a conspiracy to funnel foreign money into a pro-Trump fundraising committee ....In a 21-page indictment unsealed Thursday, federal prosecutors in Manhattan alleged Messrs. Parnas and Fruman were engaged in political activities in the U.S. on behalf of one or more Ukrainian government officials—including a lobbying campaign, targeted at a Republican congressman, to remove the U.S. ambassador in Kyiv. President Trump ordered the ambassador, Marie Yovanovitch, removed from her post in May, the Journal has reported. Their political giving—aimed at Republicans—was funded in part by an unnamed Russian donor, the indictment alleges. Federal law bans foreigners from contributing to U.S. elections........ Since late 2018, Messrs. Fruman and Parnas have introduced Mr. Giuliani to several current and former senior Ukrainian prosecutors to discuss the Biden case, acting as key conduits of information. The two had lunch with Mr. Giuliani at the Trump International Hotel in Washington on Wednesday, according to a person who was in the hotel..... Messrs. Parnas and Fruman had dinner with Mr. Trump in early May 2018, shortly before they donated to the pro-Trump super PAC, ....... Mr. Trump moved to oust Ms. Yovanovitch this spring after Mr. Giuliani told him that she was undermining him abroad and hindering efforts to investigate Mr. Biden. House committees are seeking Ms. Yovanovitch’s testimony. The indictment also says the men met in July 2018 in Las Vegas to hatch plans to start a recreational marijuana business in Nevada that would be funded by the unnamed Russian national...... https://www.wsj.com/articles/two-foreign-born-men-who-helped-giuliani-on-ukraine-arrested-on-campaign-finance-charges-11570714188?mod=hp_lead_pos1

Rudy Giuliani’s indicted Ukraine henchman gave thousands to Kevin McCarthy "Lev Parnas, the foreign-born businessman who was indicted this week on campaign-finance charges, donated thousands of dollars last year to House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-CA). As flagged by New York Daily News reporter Michael McAuliff, Parnas in June 2018 contributed $2,700 to McCarthy’s reelection campaign. Other filings made with the Federal Elections Commission show that Parnas donated that exact same amount to Rep. Pete Sessions (R-TX), who on Thursday was implicated in an indictment of Parnas and his business partner, Igor Fruman.... https://www.rawstory.com/2019/10/revealed-rudy-giulianis-indicted-ukraine-henchman-gave-thousands-to-kevin-mccarthy/#.XZ9nd_SNlvQ.twitter

    Trump vs Turkey & Kurdish allies....

    Donald Trump's longtime business connections in Turkey back in the spotlight The president's decision to remove troops from Northern Syria has put renewed focus on his relationship with Turkish President Erdogan. .......the fact that Trump made his decision to pull the U.S. troops out of Syria shortly after the phone call with Erdogan has raised alarm bells from policymakers, as well as government ethics watchdog groups who have long seen Trump’s extensive business interests as a potential area for conflicts of interest. “It’s absolutely staggering” that Trump made a decision that “has put us on the brink of causing genocide in Syria,” said Wendy Sherman, an undersecretary at the State Department during the Obama administration. The decision underscores the “impulsiveness” and “the transactional, quid pro quo-ness of the president,” she said. That “transactional” charge is based on the Trump family’s multitude of continuing business entities and interests........ https://www.nbcnews.com/politics/trump-impeachment-inquiry/donald-trump-s-longtime-business-connections-turkey-back-spotlight-n1064011

    Democrats Begin Impeachment of Trump

    The White House's impeachment letter was so wrong that even James K. Polk knew better in 1846 The caustic, meandering 8-page missive from counsel Pat Cipollone to the House was incorrect on the law, history and politics. "......in a caustic and meandering 8-page letter from White House counsel Pat Cipollone to House committee chairmen declaring that no administration officials will appear to testify or provide documents sought in the impeachment inquiry, claiming that the entire process is unconstitutional and a violation of due process, among other poorly-sourced legal and primarily political arguments. The House Democrats’ immediate and blunt response was the issuance of a subpoena for Sondland to produce documents and give his deposition Oct. 16. The White House is on thin ice. The words of the Constitution, the history of prior American impeachments, the adoption in 1974 by the House Judiciary Committee of Article III of impeachment against President Richard Nixon and a 1993 ruling of the U.S. Supreme Court refute the legitimacy of the White House’s battle plan to interfere with impeachment proceedings....... https://www.nbcnews.com/think/opinion/white-house-s-impeachment-letter-was-so-wrong-even-james-ncna1064271?cid=sm_npd_nn_tw_ma

    GOP madness Unbound...

    andrew kaczynski @KFILE · 6h Lindsey Graham in 1998 during Clinton’s impeachment saying, “The day Richard Nixon failed to answer that subpoena is the day he was subject to impeachment.” ------------------------------------------------- (in 2012) After the Obama White House invoked executive privilege over some documents during the Fast and Furious investigation,(Trey Gowdy) the congressman blasted the Obama administration for doing the same thing the Trump administration seems to be doing now. “The notion that you can withhold information and documents from Congress no matter whether you are the party in power or not in power is wrong. Respect for the rule of law must mean something, irrespective of the vicissitudes of political cycles,” Gowdy said at the time.
