Seems to me that Rudy, Lev, Igor, and their cronies were the actual deep state. The actual shadow government. They’re not elected, appointed, nor can they pass a security clearance making our foreign policy.

And let’s check in with the Pulpit Pimps!

Longtime Christian evangelist Jim Bakker claimed Democrats will “kill” President Donald Trump if impeachment can’t remove him from office.

newsweek.com

The far right-wing pastor, 79, who gained notoriety for hosting The PTL Club alongside his first wife in the 1970s-80s, predicted Monday that Trump’s Democratic Party critics will attempt to assassinate him if they can’t oust him politically. Speaking on his Branson, Missouri-based The Jim Bakker Show, the pro-Trump preacher said America is being “ripped apart” by people who hate the president.

sondland is applying the crowbar

saying all the evidence is there hidden behind stonewall

He’s making the (im)plausible argument that he couldn’t be truthful because he wasn’t able to view the papers to refresh his recollection and state truthfully what happened because Pompeo and Trump were obstructing their release to the House investigation.

It’s an out, but one that directly implicates Pompeo and Trump in multiple federal felonies.

my take

sondland’s first stance when he first testified was based on the idea that everything behind the stone wall would stay there

then it turned out that the testimony of the others was enough to damage him personally

then he decided “nope, im not gonna be holding the bag for this bunch”

so today he’s laying out everything that they’re hiding and why no one else is testifying

re: #103 HappyWarrior

100% correct. He’s a failure.

They might not be his achievements, but his presence in the office is what allowed McConnell and Paul Ryan to succeed in what they did. It’s not that Trump himself has anything to hang his hat on, but that he’s the rubber stamp for the rest of the GOP’s pathologies. That’s a significant part of why they’re so gung-ho for him.

That he had a problem with what Trump did. Bozell has basically acknowledged that he thinks our civil servants should be subservient to the will of the President if it’s a President he agrees with. Meanwhile if it’s Obama and we saw him in the Obama years, it’s to make out those same public servants out to be evil for executing the day to day decisions that the executive branch makes.

But he had to know that the investigation would be concluded long after the election was over, and the appearance that there was an “investigation” would be enough to cloud Biden’s run and shape the election to Trump’s benefit.

It’s the same way Comey announced that an investigation was looking at Clinton’s emails just days before the election all while the FBI was silent about ongoing investigations into Trump’s cronies for being undeclared foreign agents (hint: they were).

For there is nothing hidden that will not be disclosed, and nothing concealed that will not be known or brought out into the open. Therefore consider carefully how you listen. Whoever has will be given more; whoever does not have, even what they think they have will be taken from them.”

If Sondland was the singular fact witness, then it would be convincing to say that he hadn’t nailed the WH to the wall.

But he’s not, he’s just the latest bombshell dropper in a series of them, with more still to come. The totality of the evidence so far would be enough to secure an indictment, if not a conviction, in virtually any jurisdiction you care to name in this country.

I think the Democrats are concentrating on establishing this *one* case since it then throws open the door (or perhaps more aptly breaks the dam) to look at everything else.

Mrs. Jay and I were (for a change) watching the hearings live, and she brought up an interesting point ( unrelated to Ukrainian stuff): why have the Democrats ( and the media, for that matter) seem to have completely spaced the news of the settlement deal a Trump had to agree to with NYS, where he basically admitted guilt in a major charity fraud?

They may not be interested in pursuing impeachment based on crimes committed before his election to the Presidency, especially those that were not involved in getting him the office. OTOH, it’s certainly possible that tax crimes could figure in to the impeachment, if they manage to acquire his tax records before the articles are voted on.

Personally, despite all the arguments to the contrary, I really think he may well resign, citing health issues, especially if there is a commitment to not prosecute him for his criminal activities. Question to lawyers: could President Pence pardon him for tax evasion so that he doesn’t have to pay up? Or would the pardon be limited to his not going to jail for tax fraud?

Just my opinion, of course, but I think Moscow Mitch is more-likely figuring out how to game the Senate trial so that he gets the desired acquittal with just enough leeway to make it appear reasonably “fair”… And/or give wavering GOPers the proper level of cover.

My suspicion is that there will be some Republican senators who will vote for conviction and removal. There may be an argument about whether perhaps the president should just be censured. But I can’t see all Republican senators feeling so invulnerable that they just blindly run down the rabbit hole.

Some of them have their hands tied by Russian Kompromat, they will not budge. Others are truly ideologically blindered and the rest will just have to run with the herd.

So his excuse for resignation is that he wants to be a Senator? Mark Sanford did recover from his “hiking the Appalachian trail” controversy. But that did not involve a serious betrayal of public trust, just marital trust. Pompeo has been assiduously working to undermine American security ever since he became Secretary of State. Any competent opponent of his would raise these charges regularly during the campaign. Trump’s entire administration is part of Team Treason (except for those like Carson who are merely part of Team Corruption).
