I have a difficult time believing anything I see these days. For example, I can't believe the Democrats had a nearly ideal candidate for president in 2016, a distinguished and experienced politician who is highly respected and very popular with the base, but they threw him overboard and instead nominated (in a rigged process) an incompetent, dishonest, and thoroughly obnoxious and dislikeable alternative on the theory that she would somehow be "more electable".
It suggests at least the possibility that the Democrats purposely threw the election. Or else they really are that dumb.
^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^

Still spewing the propaganda he was told to swallow.

LOL.

A second U.S. Embassy staffer in Kyiv overheard a cellphone call between President Donald Trump and his ambassador to the European Union discussing a need for Ukrainian officials to pursue “investigations,” The Associated Press has learned.

The July 26 call between Trump and Gordon Sondland was first described during testimony Wednesday by William B. Taylor Jr., the acting U.S. ambassador to Ukraine. Taylor said one of his staffers overhead the call while Sondland was in a Kyiv restaurant the day after Trump’s July 25 phone call with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskiy that triggered the House impeachment inquiry.

The second diplomatic staffer also at the table was Suriya Jayanti, a foreign service officer based in Kyiv. A person briefed on what Jayanti overheard spoke to AP on condition of anonymity to discuss a sensitive matter currently under investigation.

Trump on Wednesday said he did not recall the July 26 call.

“No, not at all, not even a little bit,” Trump said.

The staffer Taylor testified about is David Holmes, the political counselor at the embassy in Kyiv, according to an official familiar with the matter who spoke on condition of anonymity.

Holmes is scheduled to testify Friday before House investigators in a closed session.

Taylor was one of the first witnesses called Wednesday during the impeachment inquiry’s initial open hearing. He testified that his staffer could hear Trump on the phone asking Sondland about “the investigations.”

The accounts of Holmes and Jayanti could tie Trump closer to alleged efforts to hold up military aid to Ukraine in exchange for investigations into political rival Joe Biden and his son Hunter’s business dealings.

Current and former U.S. officials say Sondland’s use of a cellphone in a public place in Ukraine to speak with anyone in the U.S. government back home about sensitive matters, let alone the president, would be a significant breach of communications security.

They talk like mafia goons...


Rudy Giuliani says he has 'insurance' if Trump tries to throw him under the bus in the impeachment process


  • President Donald Trump's personal attorney Rudy Giuliani told The Guardian that he had "insurance" should the president seek to set him up as a fall guy in House Democrats' impeachment investigation.
  • Giuliani's lawyer quickly interjected that the remark was a joke — but the answer was telling nonetheless.
  • In recent days, reports have emerged that senior Republicans are mulling throwing Giuliani under the bus to distance Trump from the deal Giuliani was attempting to broker in Ukraine.

Giuliani holds all the cards in that relationship.

He can likely get any prosecution immunity he wants if he starts squealin' like a pig.

This is the equivalent of getting a take home test, having the ability to look answers up online, and still getting an F on it.

Seventy percent of Americans said President Donald Trump was wrong to pressure Ukraine’s leader to pursue probes into his political opponents, according to a new survey, and more than half of respondents indicated he should be removed from office.

An ABC News/Ipsos poll published Monday found that 51 percent of those surveyed believed Trump should be impeached by House lawmakers, as well as convicted by the Senate. Six percent said that while Trump’s actions were wrong and that he should be impeached, he should not be ousted by the Senate.

An additional 13 percent also deemed the president’s push for foreign investigations of his rivals to be wrong, but believed he should neither be impeached nor convicted by Congress. A quarter of respondents, 25 percent, said Trump did nothing wrong.

The survey’s findings come after the House impeachment inquiry’s first week of public hearings, which a majority of Americans have been monitoring. Among those polled, 21 percent said they have followed the proceedings “very closely” and 37 percent have followed the hearings “somewhat closely.”
