David Gergan...""The testimony we've been hearing shows how blessed we are with our Foreign Diplomats, and how dishonest they're Proving this admin to be""

Recommended Posts

If the Republicans want more substantial and direct evidence, they should demand the testimony of Mike Pompeo, who has been implicated in the scandal by the testimony of his own subordinates including Ambassador to the European Union Gordon Sondland. Pompeo allegedly instructed State Department personnel to cooperate in the machinations of Rudy Giuliani, the president’s henchman on Ukraine. For that matter, they should also demand to hear from Giuliani himself under oath, who claims to be a Trump attorney but has made no court appearances on behalf of the president.

 

If the Republicans want firsthand proof of who ordered the suspension of military aid to Ukraine — at least until Zelensky promised to smear Biden on cable TV — they should insist on sworn testimony from Mick Mulvaney. The acting chief of staff told the Office of Management and Budget, which he continues to oversee, to withhold that vital assistance from Kiev, without any further explanation, and it did. Surely the Republicans want to know who gave that order.

 

If the Republicans need additional evidence that Trump pushed this “drug deal,” as former national security adviser John Bolton dubbed the Ukraine bribery and extortion scheme, then they must join the Democrats in urging Bolton to step forward with the truth. Bolton has always been a dubious figure, dating back to his efforts to help the Reagan administration cover up the Iran-contra scandal. But his failure was cast into sharp relief by the words of Fiona Hill, the former White House Russia expert who spoke up courageously in her own testimony. Like Bill Taylor, George Kent, David Holmes and the other witnesses who came before the committee, she did her duty.

 

“I believe that those who have information that the Congress deems relevant have a legal and moral obligation to provide it,” said Hill. She was morally and legally right, of course — and her simple statement should shame every official, both in Congress and the executive branch, still aiding Trump’s obstruction.

Trump lawyer Rudy Giuliani accuses Mike Pompeo’s State Department of obstruction of justice

Keeping track of the Republican defenses of President Donald Trump got a little more difficult on Thursday when his private attorney appeared to throw his Secretary of State under the bus.

 

Rudy Giuliani suggested Secretary of State Mike Pompeo may have committed obstruction by refusing visas to three Ukrainians the former New York City mayor wants to testify about conspiracy theories.

 

“The embassy in Ukraine refuses to give visas for three witnesses, two present prosecutors and the former Prosecutor General, who have direct evidence of major Dem corruption in Ukraine in 2016,” Giuliani argued.

 

 

“They will show how Embassy there did nothing to protect [Trump]. Obstruction?” Giuliani asked.

 

Legal analysts predicted that Trump underlings would begin to turn on each other as evidence mounted against the administration.

 

The embassy in Ukraine refuses to give visas for three witnesses, two present prosecutors and the former Prosecutor General, who have direct evidence of major Dem corruption in Ukraine in 2016. They will show how Embassy there did nothing to protect @realDonaldTrump. Obstruction?

Still haven't figured out who David Gergen is yet eh?

 

"The leftist press is still trying to sell tired old David Gergen as a “Republican strategist” or even “Reagan advisor.” That’s all nonsense. Reagan had the good sense not to trust Gergen, who is a big-time liberal political hack who has claimed to be an “independent.”

Comrade personreal

""Reagan had the good sense not to trust Gergen, who is a big-time liberal political hack who has claimed to be an “independent.”...""

 

 

 

Comparing scandals by party

Just glancing at the chart above, it’s pretty clear which administrations are the most criminal, but let’s roll up the data anyway.

EXECUTIVE BRANCH CRIMINAL ACTIVITIES BY PARTY SINCE 1968
ADMINISTRATION

TOTAL YEARS

IN OFFICE

CRIMINAL

INDICTMENTS

CRIMINAL

CONVICTIONS

PRISON

SENTENCES

DEMOCRATIC 20 3 1 1
REPUBLICAN 28 120 89 34

Some might try to argue that this unfairly penalizes Republican administrations because GOP administrations held office for eight more years than Democratic administrations during this time period. The huge gap between the numbers shows how ridiculous that is, but even so, let’s get the averages per year of combined administrations:

AVERAGE EXECUTIVE BRANCH CRIMINAL ACTIONS BY YEAR SINCE 1968
ADMINISTRATION

AVERAGE #

INDICTMENTS

PER YEAR

AVERAGE #

CONVICTIONS

PER YEAR

AVERAGE #

IMPRISONMENTS

PER YEAR

DEMOCRATIC 0.15 0.05 0.05
REPUBLICAN 4.29 3.18 1.21

 

 

Even when we standardize it by getting annual averages, GOP administrations still have 29 times more indictments, 64 times more convictions, and 24 times more prison sentences.

Hill's comment summed up evidence that build a strong case that Trump -- as Sondland put it in an overheard telephone call in July -- "didn't give a s—t" about Ukraine but wanted the vulnerable ex-Soviet state to cough up political favors.
Hill also helped the Democratic case by exposing the core of the defense of Trump built by GOP lawmakers.
 
She slammed the "fictional" conspiracy theories that Ukraine meddled in the US election that she said were dreamed up by Moscow in another attempt to fulfill Putin's goal of stoking political division and diminishing America's prestige.

Poor beanie.....

 

More Americans oppose impeachment than support it, a National Emerson College poll released on Thursday revealed.

 

The poll, which coincided with the seventh public impeachment hearing in the nation’s capital, found that opposition to the partisan impeachment effort is growing, while support is slipping.

Conducted November 17-20, 2019, among 1,092 registered voters, the poll found that a greater percentage of people now oppose impeachment than support it.

 

“Support for impeachment has flipped since October from 48% support with 44% opposing to now 45% opposed and 43% in support,” Emerson found. The greatest shift in opinion occurred among independent voters, who now oppose impeachment 49 percent to 34 percent. Last month, independents supported impeachment 48 percent to 39 percent.

 

More via Emerson:

 

The impeachment hearings are being watched or followed by 69% of voters. A plurality (26%) is getting their information from Fox News, 24% are getting their information from 1 of the 3 network stations (ABC, NBC, CBS), 16% are watching CNN, 15% MSNBC and 19% are going somewhere else for their information.

 

The margin of error is +/- 2.9 percent.

 

The results coincide with a Politico-Morning Consult poll released this week, which showed support for impeachment dropping and opposition growing, particularly among independents.

 

As Breitbart News reported:

 

The survey was taken November 15-17 among 1,994 registered voters and found that 47 percent of independents actively oppose the impeachment inquiry. This figure is a 10-point increase from last week, as noted by the Hill.

 

Independent support for the inquiry fell to 40 percent – a seven-point drop.

 

Overall, support for the inquiry dropped by two points and opposition grew by three points.

Hey, beanie, the Horowitz, IG Report is going to be a REAL INVESTIGATIVE BOMBSHELL that exposes ALL of your lies.

 

You better find a "new forum" to post your pretty cartoons on since we plan to run you completely off this one in a couple of days when it hits.

 

So, you think this FBI critter needs to be in PRISON for LYING TO THE FISA COURT to get a SPY WARRANT on the Trump Campaign???

Diplomats who cannot support the president have no business representing the United States. Several of these diplomats freely admitted to telling foreign leaders to disregard requests from the white house. It's little wonder Trump used different channels to accomplish his diplomatic goals.

He is clearly fed up that they were all dragging him down into the muck of their corrupt and traitorous conspiracy\
