Recommended Posts

President Trump made 87 false claims last week, using relentless dishonesty to defend his dealings with Ukraine and his decisions on Syria. Trump made 40 false claims last Thursday alone, including 30 at his campaign rally in Dallas.

NEW: Trump had advance knowledge and supported a protest by Republicans
who told him they planned to barge into a secure hearing room on Capitol Hill where Democrats are holding impeachment testimonies, according to four people familiar with the matter.
===================================
 
 
 
This... well... this may be a crime.
Donald Trump orchestrating the intimidation, obstruction, or harassment of a federal witness
in an ongoing federal investigation he knows about and knows he's a subject in or even the target of?
 
Crimes committed in public are *still crimes*.

The Fix

Analysis

Here are the next shoes to drop in the Trump-Ukraine scandal

So what do we need to find out next?

The first big question involves an aide who figures prominently in Taylor’s narrative: Tim Morrison, the head of the White House National Security Council’s Eurasia desk. In arguably the most significant disclosure by Taylor, Morrison allegedly told him that Sondland had relayed an explicit quid pro quo to a top aide to Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky, Andriy Yermak.

...

Another key element is what Sondland might say from here on out. As I noted in my takeaways post, there appear to be major discrepancies between what he said in his testimony last week and what Taylor said Tuesday.

A key example: Sondland said, “I recall no discussions with any State Department or White House official about former vice president Biden or his son, nor do I recall taking part in any effort to encourage an investigation into the Bidens." Compare that to Taylor’s hearing about Morrison’s version of events, and it’s difficult to square them.

...

Once we go beyond Taylor’s testimony, there is the matter of the White House transcript of that Trump-Zelensky call. There continue to be unanswered questionsabout whether it was the full picture, with ellipses coming at key junctures when Trump was talking about the investigations mentioned above. We knew that it was a rough transcript based upon notes taken by those listening in on the call, but there are some indications and suggestions that there might be a word-for-word transcript somewhere.

And one last timely and potentially major matter is what happens next with Giuliani. There have been mixed messages about whether he is under investigation and if so, for what, after two business associates of his, Lev Parnas and Igor Fruman, were indicted recently. Republicans, including Trump, have distanced themselves from Giuliani, perhaps worried about how brazen he might have been in this whole time frame. We’ve already seen what happened when one of Trump’s personal lawyers got into trouble (see: Cohen, Michael); it’s not difficult to think what might happen if Giuliani is truly in hot water.

As a former prosecutor, I know that when the facts and law are not on your side,
the defense attacks the process.
 
It's no coincidence that Republicans disregarded all rules & norms by storming the SCIF to stop interviews
 
the day after Ambassador Taylor's devastating testimony.
<_<

which the democrats held in a secret private hearing far away from the eyes and ears of the news media and the American people...
funny, ain't it? liberal democrats are usually the first ones to start whining about closed processes hidden from the American public.

How can you tell? These days, it seems as if everything else is being drowned out by the incessant whining of the Whiny Little ****.

If it was a secret meeting, then how do you know about it, dipstick? 

Like I said in the other thread, there are Republicans in the same hearings. 

The guys who stormed the hearing room are clowns and morons. Which I guess is why you guys keep electing them.

Current and former Trump administration officials are increasingly offering dirt on the president, creating a serious challenge for the White House in the ongoing impeachment inquiry.

With all the Fake News let me make it clear that everything I did was to discover evidence to defend my client against false charges.Dems would be horrified by the attacks on me, if my client was a terrorist.But they don’t believe @realDonaldTrump has rights. Justice will prevail

6) Fox is told there was never any chance mbrs who barged into SCIF would be arrested by USCP
 
But some mbrs members asked to be arrested.
 
They wanted the optic of being frog marched out of the SCIF in front of TV cameras.
 
That would help w/GOP narrative of Dem process abuse
----------------------------------------
 
 

Instead, Republicans sat around the SCIF and ate pizza.

Then they left.

And then the three Committees proceeded with the deposition of Pentagon official Laura Cooper.

The investigation will not be stopped.

-------------------------------------------------------------------

 
 
A political party storming an impeachment hearing of their president isn’t just obnoxious,
it’s an intentional act of intimidation that sends a message
 
the work of holding a criminal accountable could be met with force and physicality.
 
This is totalitarian business.

They operated according to the rules. Only those members in the committee are present: Republicans and Democrats.

The real story here is trump doesn't trust the Republicans who are in this committee.

I see you are falling for, or abetting the Republican strategy of attacking the process (unjustifiably) while not addressing the substance of the allegations against the president*.  A petty distraction.
