Speaking of which, I contacted Senator Thom Tillis after the Whistleblower report came out. Trump retweeted something from Tillis and that set me off.

I received a response today and I fucking laughed at the absurdity.

“Thank you for taking the time to contact me about the complaint regarding President Donald Trump’s phone call with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky. I appreciate hearing from you.

On August 12, 2019, a member of the intelligence community filed a complaint with the Intelligence Community Inspector General (ICIG).

On August 26, 2019, the ICIG forwarded the complaint to the Director of National Intelligence (DNI) as required by law. The DNI shared the complaint with the Department of Justice, Office of Legal Counsel (OLC) for review to determine whether the statute required disclosure of the complaint to the Chairmen of the House and Senate Intelligence Committees. The OLC determined that the complaint did not fall within the intelligence community whistleblower statute and did not require the DNI to transfer the complaint to the congressional intelligence committees.

On September 26, 2019, the House Intelligence Committee held an open hearing to question DNI Joseph Maguire about this complaint and his handling of the disclosure process. He explained to the committee that, because of ambiguity in the law, he had contacted the OLC for legal guidance on how to proceed with this complaint.

As you may know, the individual filed a complaint based on second-hand information. The complaint outlined the individual’s concerns about a phone call between President Trump and President Zelensky. In the interest of transparency, President Trump declassified both the transcript of his call with President Zelensky and the complaint that was filed.

Instead of focusing on real issues like securing our border, modernizing our infrastructure, or supporting our military, partisan House members and Speaker Nancy Pelosi are using all of their time and resources to once again try to cast doubt on the results of the 2016 election.

There were House members calling for President Trump’s impeachment before he was even sworn in, before the special counsel investigation concluded, and before the transcript of this phone call was released. Each time, they have had to eventually step back from their political rhetoric because the facts were not on their side. It is unfortunate that they are yet again playing political games instead of conducting the work of the American people.

Thank you again for taking the time to contact me. Please do not hesitate to reach out again about other important issues.”

Ron Johnson says he was blocked by President Trump from telling Ukraine foreign aid was coming

Westlake Legal Group Bb7lVjItERTla77TzsiYGAlkO6JLiHEIIM2bw8l6w5k Ron Johnson says he was blocked by President Trump from telling Ukraine foreign aid was coming r/politics

Holy shit, Johnson acknowledges it was extortion:

U.S. Sen. Ron Johnson was blocked by President Donald Trump in August from telling Ukraine’s president that U.S. aid was on its way in the wake of accusations Trump was withholding it until the eastern European nation investigated his political rival.

Trump rejected Johnson’s request after refusing in May to back new Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky, Johnson told reporters Friday.

“I was surprised by the president’s reaction and realized we had a sales job to do,” Johnson said during a constituent stop in Sheboygan. “I tried to convince him (in August) to give me the authority to tell President Zelensky that we were going to provide that. Now, I didn’t succeed.”

The original Wall Street Journal article has even more:

Mr. Johnson said Mr. Sondland told him, Ukraine would appoint a strong prosecutor general and move to “get to the bottom of what happened in 2016—if President Trump has that confidence, then he’ll release the military spending,” recounted Mr. Johnson.

“At that suggestion, I winced,” Mr. Johnson said. “My reaction was: Oh, God. I don’t want to see those two things combined.”

Sondland, a wealthy businessman who donated $1 million to Trump’s inaugural, was literally the only person in the text messages released last night who suggested that the deal wasn’t a quid pro quo (while desperately trying to get the other ambassadors to stop talking about the quid pro quo in text and call him instead). Now, a GOP Senator just admitted Sondland told him it was.

It’s all falling apart.

Nancy Pelosi Says House Doesn’t Need ‘Too Much Inquiry’ To Impeach Trump, Claims President Had ‘Confessed’ To Violating Oath Of Office

Westlake Legal Group ihXzZRhKBY-VR57sLLcToObwhQw8BLDrPEozXW2YgMI Nancy Pelosi Says House Doesn't Need 'Too Much Inquiry' To Impeach Trump, Claims President Had 'Confessed' To Violating Oath Of Office r/politics

Trump didn’t just claim one major felony.

This is about crime number 12 on public television.

Oh and we don’t even need Trump’s repeated admissions of guilt.

We have the phone transcript “summary” — doctored up by Barr — and missing 20 minutes — and it’s STILL DAMNING.

Oh and we have text messages from the Diplomats — THEY are fucking damning.

Mueller claimed he could/ would charge the President with Obstruction once he left office — and he would immediately — if a sitting President could be indicted (ultimately not up to Mueller but he ceded his powers to a memo).

You need a fucking Bible to list all of Trump’s crimes. Trump Tower Moscow, Turnberry Golf Resort, Trump Hotel DC. Not to mention his repeated tax evasion. I mean fuck, he is a bevvy of scandals. The Trump Inauguration fund was a scam. Trump U, the Trump Org. Everything he touches is a fucking criminal scam.

This is like if you took the O.J. Simpson trial combined with Jeffrey Dahmer combined with Charles Manson.

There about 20 dead bodies and smoking guns here and it’s ridiculous.

I think the only reason the House is delaying now is because so much new shit is breaking every day, they want to make sure both barrels are loaded for impeachment.

Nancy has no excuse to wait for the political winds of public opinion; they are blowing right in her face.
