WATCH LIVE: The Trump Impeachment Hearings - Day 5 — Hill, Holmes to Testify

Politics • Views: 19,852

YouTube

Fiona Hill, former National Security Council senior director for Europe and Russia, will testify before the House Intelligence Committee on Thursday, Nov. 21, in the impeachment probe into President Donald Trump. Hill told lawmakers in closed-door testimony last month that then-national security adviser John Bolton expressed concerns that the Trump administration was trying to pressure Ukrainian officials. The focus of the impeachment inquiry is a July 25 phone call in which Trump asked Ukraine’s president to investigate 2020 presidential candidate Joe Biden. Lawmakers are seeking answers on whether Trump tied that investigation to U.S. aid for Ukraine.

CL’d:

Greets and saluts from the NYC metro area.

The GOP will continue to distance themselves from reality, and Fiona Hill is testifying under oath today. Her testimony will continue to corroborate what we already know that everyone in Trumpworld was in on Trump’s attempt to bribe/extort Ukraine into announcing an investigation of Bidens by withholding military aid that they desperately needed.

Expect Trump to attack her because she’s bringing the fire.

Trump wanted the investigation to be announced because it would hurt Biden. He didn’t care if the investigation went anywhere. The announcement would be sufficient. Trump didn’t give a shit about corruption, except where he could profit from it.

Now we also learn that Lev Parnas was involved in setting up a meeting between Nunes and Ukrainian officials.

So, last night’s debate. Funny how women seem to be defined based on their accomplishments, but guys are defined on their potential.

Weird. Pete has a fraction of the accomplishments of someone like Warren or Harris, but media hot takes give him an edge why? Because of what potential he brings? What about Warren’s potential or that of Harris.

Pete is a mayor of a small market city. Heck, it’d barely rate as a neighborhood in a place like Los Angeles or Brooklyn NY (which itself is a fraction of NYC). And yet Kamala is US Senator from California and a distinguished prosecutor and Warren is also a US Senator who has signature legislation to her credit.

I don’t get it.

But I do get that everyone should be dunking on Tulsi even more than they have.

Since I got CL’d as well:

And thus we see why Kamala ceased to get any purchase after that 2nd debate: they deigned only to define her by that debate alone and her perceived ‘failures’ and refused to update any expectations or give credit for anything else after that. Her status was forever set in stone.

And that needs to be our narrative- you’ve seen the evidence, the Republicans in Congress have ignored. Vote him out once and for all.- We need to offer transparent and open government too along with a foreign policy that exists for the country’s benefit rather than the President’s wallet and ego.

Not just Republican officials. They’re seeing the idea that GOP voters aren’t shifting as a sign that this all doesn’t matter and therefore it must be bad for Dems despite the obvious and revealed criminality.

Because again, only GOP voters matter or even exist, ever.

Black men got the vote before women did.

It’s like we barely matter, have to work 100x harder, have to prove what where others (meaning men) are assumed. Where men are strong and assertive, women are bitches. We don’t fucking smile enough.

Biden’s continued support and high marks seems to be resignation at the altar of ‘electability’ at its finest. Just the sense that the powers that be won’t allow anyone but an old white male to be president anymore, so you might as well hitch your star now and focus on beating Trump first, because getting another Obama won’t be ‘allowed’ anymore.

The thing is that this sexism and racism does exist throughout our society. Yes, some is more open and more insidious but that a median presidential age candidate who has been her home county’s DA, then her state’s AG, and then their Senator. And did I mention that this is the largest population wise state in the country and one of the most diverse? If Kamala was Kam Harris, a man especially a white man, the media would be pushing him so much. Is Kamala perfect? No but at this point, I’d probably take her over all the other Dems running since I think she has the right experience, temperament, and ideological mindset to be President. I guess what I’m saying is if she’s tehre in February, I’ll vote for her in Virginia.

Yeah and I think that’s what Biden is trying to play at. I just think it’s naive especially given what we saw in the Obama years. Biden can try all he wants but it was never a Tip O’Neill-Reagan relationship that Obama had with Congressional R’s. Trump is awful and maybe him being gone will make some things easier but as Congressional Republicans resign and retire, tehy just get replaced with other nutty Republicans. Look at Matt Gaetz. A few years ago we were talking about Michele Bachmann. The names may change but the type of Republican that goes to Washington these days as a freshman and who will be growing in teh ranks in the next decade will not be a moderate but a true believer in the Trump brand. And I think that’s what Elise Stefanik and Nikki Haley have banked on.

Except taking this kind of cant feels like the political equivalent of the NYT’s ‘both sides same thing’ coverage, where all it does in the end is legitimize the GOP’s malfeasance and bad faith negotiating by exalting ‘civility’ and trying to treat the playing field as fully level.

I think that there are many Americans who want there to be this big reconciliation between parties so we can all sing kumbaya and get along like everyone cares about the country and not about getting and keeping power. I have to think that is why you hear politicians saying that.

It’s utter bullshit but that’s my take.

Which would be fine, but one side is saying “We can be neighbors again, but you’ll need to end abortion, stop giving minorities benefits, and let us be in charge.”

I bet. I think sexism is one of those things like racism where people think it has to be something really in your face for it to be it. And I’ll be the first to admit that there have been some things that were probably sexist that I overlooked because of our cultural narrative and simply being male just like I’ve probably done the same with race. I am trying not to. I really don’t like the term woke in this sense but aware. Aware that there are different standards put on men and women just as there with race.

And that ought to be the DNC rallying cry: “The Senate had a job to do and punted. Voters, get out there and finish the task that they were too cowardly to face!!!”

The Senate has to do many jobs — and it’s ignoring everything except populating the bench with unqualified racist federalist society puppets. A reminder: the most powerful woman in the United States now is the Speaker — who has passed scores of bills, including gun control and election security legislation — while these bills languish in the McConnell Senate. She is the first woman to run the House and she is brilliant at her job.

It is infuriating that Kamala is not getting the support she deserves — and part of that has to be laid at the feet of the BernieBros who saw her as a threat early on and attacked her early and viciously, demeaning her at every opportunity.

Exactly. Because who knows what the hell the GOP is going to look like in 2024? Biden I think could be a good band-aid but I don’t want a band aid. I want someone like what Obama was supposed to be- full on rubbing alcohol. Sorry for the stupid analogy but I guess my point is I think Harris would lead us on issues that previous Presidents had not or had ignored. Obama by far was the most progressive we’ve ever had on LGBT rights and for religious minorities too. I was looking forward to a Clinton presidency because I knew that HRC based on her experience would help make the US a global leader on women’s rights. The one solace I have with Biden is I think is that he will have smart people around him. Sanders? Bernie seems to be in to yes men and women. I really haven’t looked at who is advising Pete and Warren as much.

He definitely comes off as a sincere believer in the collegiality of the Senate, what with his history, and that’s a gigantic fucking landmine when dealing with McConnell, possibly the single most responsible person for the total shredding of comity and norms.

Essentially this. If Biden is the nom, I will vote for him without hesitation, because Trump absolutely needs to go, any Trump replacement (however unlikely) needs to go, and Dems need some modicum of control back in Washington.

I just fear he will play an even softer hand against the GOP than Obama did initially and find himself even more stonewalled by GOP intransigence than ever. A holding pattern is better than shit actively getting worse, but that’s not comforting to think of when the usual time limit the American electorate gives the Dems to fix GOP fuck-ups looms.

I think it’s just that we have to be looking at our candidate not just being our 2020 candidate but what liberalism will mean for the 20’s. There seems to be a divide emerging on the left on what that is. And to be honest, I feel stuck because there are things we need badly to reform but I feel the more economic left types don’t get how that takes time and patience. I dunno. Seeing how ACA got trashed makes me very wary that at this moment that M4A is the prescription.

How about Tammy Baldwin for Joe. She’s progressive, midwestern, and would help him rally support with the emerging left. Warren if she’s not it, I would prefer her stay in the Senate and become what Ted Kennedy did after not being nominated- a great legislator. Klobuchar I’m not sure on yet.

I think you need a woman and or a person of color on the ballot. Two white guys would be a mistake.

Now there are white people who do that too and I’m a white male among them and I know some of you are too but we need to acknowledge our base and thus our country’s diversity.

We need broad electability. Not what the news people say and not what the whiter than Wonder Bread people in Iowa want to give us (hello, Steve Fucking King anyone?)

I hate that New Hampshire and Iowa whose electorates do not look like the Democratic Party as a whole play such a big role in establishing momentum so early on. Now certain things have changed. Nevada and South Carolina are earlier this time as is California.

Yes, I find him highly admirable but unqualified.

Still more qualified than Trump in any case…

A lot of people are/were more qualified than Trump so that’s not quite good enough for me. I’ll vote for him if he’s the nominee but he really shouldn’t be running for POTUS. I get he’s polling well and even winning in a couple of em but I guess I think it’s a bit egotistical to go from mayor of a small city to the big show just like that and there’s still a lot he needs to learn.

I think Hill’s going directly at the GOP narrative, such as it exists today, while Sondland caused the GOP to change their narrative after getting blindsided that Sondland said there was a quid pro quo.

Holmes heard the call with Sondland - confirming that he sought an investigation of the Bidens as part of the whole affair.

Whenever I cannot get away from discussing Trump, I simply point out that he had never held public office, and since his private record is at best patchy, that makes him unqualified in terms of experience, not to mention character.

He has done absolutely nothing to change my opinion.

Pete at least has a transparent and generally admirable record of public service.

Funny story. But my cousin’s two children are British/US citizens since their Dad is British and they live in England. Anyhow, my cousin was visiting in July with her two kids. The little boy made a crack about Johnson. My niece who is a year younger also likes making cracks about Trump. My niece doesn’t have any first cousins yet since neither me, my other brother, our brother’s in laws have kids but she always remembers her second cousins from the UK I think because I told her that she had cousins that talked like Peppa Pig which amused her. But it’s also sort of neat since they both have a parent who is not from the US. My cousin’s husband in their case and my SiL in my niece’s case.

He’ll use conspiracy theories if they fit his narrative rather than facts. I don’t know what the hell Putin has on him but it’s something.

He definitely comes off as a sincere believer in the collegiality of the Senate, what with his history, and that’s a gigantic fucking landmine when dealing with McConnell, possibly the single most responsible person for the total shredding of comity and norms.

That said…

Essentially this. If Biden is the nom, I will vote for him without hesitation, because Trump absolutely needs to go, any Trump replacement (however unlikely) needs to go, and Dems need some modicum of control back in Washington.

I just fear he will play an even softer hand against the GOP than Obama did initially and find himself even more stonewalled by GOP intransigence than ever. A holding pattern is better than shit actively getting worse, but that’s not comforting to think of when the usual time limit the American electorate gives the Dems to fix GOP fuck-ups looms.

One thing about Biden—I think he has a pretty deep bench to draw from in terms of creating a cabinet. He might have a bit of an advantage there over some of the other candidates. I still much prefer Warren, but if Biden put together an all-star cabinet, and empowered them to implement their vision, we can make a lot of progress. Some big “ifs”, I know.

If you had Bibi in the corruption pool getting indicted first, step right up.

He beat out Trump in that respect.

Bibi always had the inside track to that win.

The real question is what this does to the election situation since we’re now in the free-for-all portion of the failure to form a coalition govt under the existing law.

If no one in the Knesset can form a coalition govt within the next month, it’ll mean Rivlin will have to call for new elections that aren’t any more likely to result in a new election. At least, that’s what you’d think before Bibi’s indictment.

Now that he’s indicted, does the #2 in Likud make his own move to distinguish himself and seek to form a coalition govt that Ganz is willing to go with.

So much of Israeli politics revolves around personalities, so that even though voters vote on slates to fill knesset seats, the parties are really a reflection of the party leader(s). With Bibi sidelined, it opens up opportunities for a new direction for Likud.

CNN at the moment paying a heavy, heavy price for deciding they needed to “balance” their panel. Several panelists look prepared to gang-tackle fat baldy trump flack. Cuomo keeps speaking to him with undisguised contempt.

Ayeah, he’s insisting upon a standard of evidence he knows will not be achieved because the relevant people are being prevented from testifying. He insists that there needs to be somebody who says “the aid was withheld by OMB to get the investigations,” gets read Mick Mulvaney’s own words to that effect…and says that it doesn’t count because Mulvaney didn’t say it under oath before Congress.

So, indictments notwithstanding, does Bibi have to “step aside” or “step down”?

AFAIC, it would be entirely in character for him to simply say “Screw you, see you in court”, and just go on with his crooked politicking unless/until the police physically haul him out of his office….

re: #214 lawhawk

If you had Bibi in the corruption pool getting indicted first, step right up.

He beat out Trump in that respect.

Bibi always had the inside track to that win.

The real question is what this does to the election situation since we’re now in the free-for-all portion of the failure to form a coalition govt under the existing law.

If no one in the Knesset can form a coalition govt within the next month, it’ll mean Rivlin will have to call for new elections that aren’t any more likely to result in a new election. At least, that’s what you’d think before Bibi’s indictment.

Now that he’s indicted, does the #2 in Likud make his own move to distinguish himself and seek to form a coalition govt that Ganz is willing to go with.

So much of Israeli politics revolves around personalities, so that even though voters vote on slates to fill knesset seats, the parties are really a reflection of the party leader(s). With Bibi sidelined, it opens up opportunities for a new direction for Likud.

That’s the danger of full proportional representation. If the threshold was raised to 5% a lot of those splinter parties would be eliminated and it would be easier to form a coalition!

Yes, it often takes an awful lot of effort on my part to talk myself into them and I am sometimes more relieved than disappointed when they are cancelled.

I am looking forward to Thanksgiving dinner with some expat friends next week, though.

re: #220 Jay C

He’s got a presser scheduled for later today, so we’ll see his position.

It’s also important to note who else was involved in the indictments:

Netanyahu is accused of involvement in a media bribery scheme in which Walla! owner Shaul Elovitch gave him positive coverage in exchange for Netanyahu making government policies favor Elovitch’s Bezeq company to the tune of around NIS 1.8 billion.
In Case 1000, Netanyahu is accused of receiving hundreds of thousands of shekels in gifts from rich tycoons, mostly from Arnon Milchin, in exchange for a variety of help with business and personal-legal initiatives. The charge itself is for acting in situations in which Netantahu had a conflict of interest, since no actual quid pro quo could be proven.
In Case 2000, Netanyahu was accused of working with Yediot and Yisrael Hayom to reduce Yisrael Hayom’s competition with Yediot in exchange for positive coverage for Netanyahu in Yediot. The deal never went through, but the law has crimes of attempted bribery and breach of trust which can apply even if a deal does not go through.

Bibi was working with and against various media outlets to damage his rivals.

re: #222 Joe Bacon 🌹

I think the threshold would need to be much higher than that. And it still wouldn’t result in a party that could get to a majority without forming a coalition.

I think you’d need to get a threshold of at least 15 to eliminate much of the splintering we see right now - or the formation of joint lists.

One of the reasons for the low threshold is the notion that the Israeli government should reflect all the views of the Israeli electorate. That invariably leads to chaos and inability to form a govt.

Not to be completely superficial here, but Fiona Hill’s accent has completely won me over already. :)

Also, in the same statement, Nancy made clear that the Dems do not intend to wait out every single court case just to get testimony that might help their case against Trump. They feel that they have enough evidence now to make the case and plan to move forward without those witnesses. That they could be made available to the Senate trial, depending on the timeline there, but the Dems are not going to play the WH’s game of waiting weeks or months per witness. The calculus seems to be that it hurts the WH’s case more than it helps to have these witnesses gagged at Trump’s order.

At the time, the GOP was sharply divided between pro-labor liberals like Nelson Rockefeller (though he wasn’t yet the leader) and the stridently anti-labor Taft faction (of Taft-Hartley fame). This division dated back a long way. In 1940, for example, the Taft Republicans were the backbone of the pro-Nazi isolationist movement, but the nomination was actually won by a visionary internationalist, Wendell Wilkie. The latter was probably to the left of FDR himself on many issues, particularly segregation and racial justice.

Willkie if he hadn’t died prematurely could have been a great leader for the GOP post WWII. Not presidential material but a fine man.

“The State of Israel Against Binyamin Netanyahu”

This leading headline from Israel’s largest news site will probably be dwarfed by the ones to be printed in the Friday morning papers in Israel (a little piece of timing that simply couldn’t be worse for Netanyahu news-wise - Israel’s Friday morning papers have a bit of cultural impact that’s unique in a country that formally shuts down between Friday afternoon and Saturday evening).
Mind you, as bad as having indictments for not one but 3 different cases might be, the worst is actually yet to come for Bibi. Of the four investigations that Netanyahu was involved in (known as Cases 1000, 2000, 3000 and 4000), the most volatile of them all hasn’t been concluded yet - Case 3000. That one involves allegations of corruption surrounding the sale of submarines to Israel and has national security aspects that makes it so much more significant than any of the indictments of the other cases.
That it’s still being held back at this point is telling.

Dewey may be best known today as the butt of this famous photograph:

That wasn’t his only moment of embarrassing over-confidence though.

On election night, Dewey asked his wife, “How will it be to sleep with the president of the United States?” She replied, “A high honor, and quite frankly, darling, I’m looking forward to it.”

Next morning, at breakfast, after Dewey’s defeat, Mrs. Dewey said, “Tell me, Tom, am I going to Washington or is Harry coming here?”

I have no idea how he deals with WWI or the rise of the industrial unions and leftist movements of that period.

Russia’s goal is not to delegitimize the President of the United States. Putin’s goal is to delegitimize the United States itself. President Trump is incompetent. Causing him to be elected via the Electoral College as per the present Constitution was the method used to undermine US standing and authority in the world.

Putin’s operational attack on the US has been the most successful on a cost/benefit ratio since 9/11. Decades from now history classes the world over will marvel at Putin’s tremendous success in undermining an enemy country from within and leveraging the power of social media in utilizing tribal notions of white supremacy to greatly decrease US hegemony.
