What David Corn says…

This is how it works. The big lie. The endless spin. The outright denial of facts. Again and again and again. The complete destruction and devaluation of truth for political gain. Overwhelm reality with fiction, concoctions, and false narratives. Embrace deceit and duplicity

I was in awe when I saw the NBC interview. These GOP jerks have nothing and will “pound the table.” OK, some said it it was a “softball Interview.” I am of the the mind it was to show Barr’s ass. And it did.

Your mileage may vary.



So, about these phone records …

The House committees leading the impeachment inquiry revealed new details Tuesday about President Trump and his allies’ Ukraine pressure campaign — details that came in the form of phone records obtained by the House.

The phone records suggest Rudy Giuliani was in contact with the White House and with officials elsewhere in the administration at key moments as the Ukraine conspiracy theories were being elevated by Trump’s allies. On several occasions, after Giuliani connected with the White House switchboard, he would receive a phone call minutes later from an unknown number beginning with “-1.”

So, if one was to speculate, would “-1” be Trump? Wink, wink.

Did it even occur to any of these clowns that there would be records?

Cheesus crackers!!!

House Intelligence Committee releases report on impeachment inquiry …

Evidence for impeaching Donald Trump for misconduct in office is “overwhelming”, according to the panel leading the US impeachment inquiry.

The president placed personal political interests “above the national interests of the United States,” it states in a key report to US House lawmakers.

Evidence of misconduct was overwhelming “and so too is the evidence of his obstruction of Congress,” it adds.

North Dakota contractor awarded 400 million dollar contract for border wall construction …

Trump has been enamored with Tommy Fisher, the company’s chief executive, who has made multiple appearances on Fox News to promote his firm and insists that it would do a better job than those the government had already chosen. The company’s attorneys did not immediately respond to requests for comment late Monday.

About those phone calls Mr. Sondland …

Sondland’s recollection of a phone conversation that he said took place on Sept. 9 has emerged as a centerpiece of Trump’s defense as House Democrats argue in an impeachment inquiry that he abused his office to pressure Ukraine to investigate Democrats.

However, no other witness testimony or documents have emerged that corroborate Sondland’s description of a call that day.

The call occurred on September 7th. In this call, Trump did say there was “no quid pro quo” with Ukraine, but he then went on to outline his preconditions for releasing the security assistance and granting a White House visit. The call was so alarming that when John Bolton learned of it, he ordered his deputy Tim Morrison to immediately report it to the National Security Council lawyers…

Sondland has testified there was a call on September 9th in which Trump said there was “no quid pro quo,” but that he wanted President Zelenskyy “to do” the right thing. A close reading of the publicly available evidence shows that the latter call was actually the very one that sent Morrison to the lawyers, and that Ambassador Bill Taylor foregrounded in his written deposition to inform Congress of the quid pro quo.

White House turns down participating in House Judiciary Committee’s first impeachment hearing on Wednesday…
