‘Blow Up the Phones’: Demands That #BoltonMustTestify Surge After New Revelations About Ukrainian Aid Freeze. “We are citizens of the United States of America, and we must indeed unite together to stop this GOP cover-up.”

Westlake Legal Group IqhuEN8C23uuuED741iri9e94xYkMVKmMmy6fzeccV8 'Blow Up the Phones': Demands That #BoltonMustTestify Surge After New Revelations About Ukrainian Aid Freeze. "We are citizens of the United States of America, and we must indeed unite together to stop this GOP cover-up." r/politics

They must be stopped at all costs.

Just hijacking this comment to remind people that it’s doubly important to call your Senators and Representatives if they are Republicans!

I know, I know: “But Max they’ll never listen to me, they’ll never change their mind, my call won’t make a difference!”

This isn’t necessarily about changing their minds, it’s about sending a message, letting them know that there are people who will proactively campaign and vote against them if they obstruct the law and the constitution. The point of calling is to put the fear of God into them, to give them another voice in their ear besides just the lobbyists and the Fox news pundits. The more hopeless it seems, the more important it is for you to participate, that’s how politics works: When they ignore us, we speak louder! No, you may not change their minds, but hearing “Sir, you’ve got ten thousand new voice mails.” could very well make a difference. Speak up, speak out, make yourself be heard.

So put your concerns aside for a moment, take five minutes and call your Senator, even and especially if they’re Republicans. Let them know with a clear voice: If you don’t support this inquiry then we’ll send someone to Washington DC who will. Vote with your voice.

Discussion Thread: Senate Impeachment Trial – Day 7: Opening Arguments Continue | 01/27/2020 – Live, 1pm EST

Today the Senate Impeachment trial of President Donald Trump continues with Session 2 of President Trump’s defense counsel’s opening arguments. The Senate session is scheduled to begin at 1pm EST.

Prosecuting the House’s case will be a team of seven Democratic House Managers, named last week by Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi and led by House Intelligence Committee Chairman Rep. Adam Schiff of California. White House Counsel Pat Cipollone and Trump’s personal lawyer, Jay Sekulow, are expected to take the lead in arguing the President’s case. Kenneth Star and Alan Dershowitz are expected to fill supporting roles.

The Senate Impeachment Trial is following the Rules Resolution that was voted on, and passed, on Monday. It provides the guideline for how the trial is handled. All proposed amendments from Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY) were voted down.

The adopted Resolution will:

  • Give the House Impeachment Managers 24 hours, over a 3 day period, to present opening arguments.

  • Give President Trump’s legal team 24 hours, over a 3 day period, to present opening arguments.

  • Allow a period of 16 hours for Senator questions, to be addressed through Supreme Court Justice John Roberts.

  • Allow for a vote on a motion to consider the subpoena of witnesses or documents once opening arguments and questions are complete.


The Articles of Impeachment brought against President Donald Trump are:

The “What happened in your state last week?” Megathread, Week 4

Welcome to the ‘What happened in your state last week’ thread, where you can post any local political news stories that you find important in the comments. This is a weekly thread posted every Monday, in order to facilitate more discussion on local issues on r/politics. Since this is intended to be a thread about local politics, top-level comments that are exclusively about national issues will not be allowed. When commenting, please include the state you’re living in, and don’t forget to link sources. Also, please actually describe what happened. “I live in X, you know what happened” isn’t helpful to users and will be removed.

If someone from your state made a news round-up that you think is insufficient, feel free to comment to that round-up with further news stories. Enjoy discussion, and review our civility guidelines before engaging with others.


Hi there, r/politics. A reminder that news about presidential election primary candidates is considered off topic for this thread. Thank you, and have a good week!

Megathread: Fmr. National Security Advisor John Bolton Alleges President Trump Tied Ukraine Funding to Investigation Into Bidens

Westlake Legal Group nk407vcH5SfotTVU3UJ225JJkIME42QdHQhpdI_yq3s Megathread: Fmr. National Security Advisor John Bolton Alleges President Trump Tied Ukraine Funding to Investigation Into Bidens r/politics

President Trump’s former national security adviser John Bolton alleges in his forthcoming book that the president explicitly told him “he wanted to continue freezing $391 million in security assistance to Ukraine until officials there helped with investigations into Democrats including the Bidens,” the New York Times first reported.

The revelations present a dramatic 11th hour turn in Trump’s Senate impeachment trial. They directly contradict Trump’s claim that he never tied the hold-up of Ukrainian aid to his demands for investigations into his political opponent Joe Biden.
