I think Sondland still in cahoots with MF45. Didn't he really thread the needle?

I think trump has decided he can't defend that they weren't holding up $$. So they are willing to admit (or defend) withholding $$ for two reasons: 1) meeting prerequisite and 2) to requesting investigation but of Burisma only. Both can be defended (albeit weakly) as ok.

Sondland was very careful to qualify his statements, not to utter the Biden word.

And the infamous phone call to trump took place on September 9th (after whistleblower known).
Isn't this just way too convenient? Why did Sondland wait SO long to get Trump's motives?

And then Trump conveniently uses Sondland's words in a presser yesterday?

Sondland throws Pompeo and others under bus (they all knew)? Helps trump so he can blame others.

But the biggest key to me is that Sondland mocked the guy who had lunch and shared a bottle of wine with him. And specifically refuted that he used the word Biden. BTW, what does that other person at lunch say about that?

In addition, Sondland changed his testimony...another sign of guilt and that he's been in this evolving story all along.

All this is way too coincidental.

So the Sondland call to trump where MF45 says

I want nothing. Was that in Sondlands opening?

Just heard trump repeat it verbatim.

Something seems fishy about this.

Like it was invented today.

Yet he told Morrison and Volker about it? So guess not.

PS are they gonna call the other person who was at lunch to coorborate that they said "Biden"? (Sondland saying just Burmisa)

And why didn't they ask him how much wine they drank at lunch?

Whoever wins for us

Complimentary VPs ? Do Warren and Sanders need a more conservative non-New England VP?

Biden fans, does he need a younger, optimistic type like Beto...

What kind of VP does each need?

How weird is it that the anti-impeachment people

here are silent now and are not weighing in on options on our successes (and improvement challenges) ?

Guess mission was not accomplished?

True mission should have always been about the ultimate goal - holding MF45 to justice . Whether sooner or later. No?

Sergii Leshchenko: Republicans keep lying about me at impeachment hearings


Every time U.S. President Donald Trump’s sympathizers bring up my name, “Leshchenko,” at the U.S. House impeachment hearings, I can imagine the effort it takes. The name has a Ukrainian sound in the middle that for a lack of an English equivalent is transliterated as this complicated combination, “shch.” Not an easy one to say.

So to spare American politicians the trouble of having to deal with the “shch” sound, I want to clarify my actions and respond to the accusations made during the hearing by Congressmen Jim Jordan (R-Ohio), Devin Nunes (R-Calif.), and Steven Castor, Republican counsel for the House Oversight Committee.


Falsehood #1

The first narrative is that I was allegedly a source of information for Fusion GPS, a company that had been preparing a dossier on Trump and his possible connections in Russia. This was claimed by Nellie Ohr in her statement to the U.S. Congress last year.

In their statements, congressmen Jordan, Nunes and counsel Castor assume and sometimes even falsely claim that I was working for the Democrats and “digging” up dirt on Trump and his staff. To stop this flow of lies, I tweeted back at Congressmen Jordan, Nuns and counsel Castor.

I said I’ve never met Ohr or anyone else involved with Fusion GPS. As a member of the Ukrainian parliament, which I had been until August, I have held thousands of meetings over the past five years. But I have never met these people.

Falsehood #2

The second narrative is that I allegedly tried to undermine Trump’s candidacy in 2016 by targeting his then-campaign manager Paul Manafort. I allegedly did so by publishing the papers known in Ukraine as the “black ledger” of the Party of Regions, the party of the former President Viktor Yanukovych, ousted by the EuroMaidan Revolution in 2014.

Representatives of the
Republican Party say that since the documents mentioned payments to Manafort during his work for Yanukovych, it must mean I did it to hurt Trump’s campaign. Yet these statements don’t pass even the most basic fact-checking.

70% minus approximately 20% (nonDem supporters). Let's just stipulate

that there are 20% of the voters who think trump did something wrong with Ukraine but don't think he should be removed.

How do we get to them? What could we pile on to Ukraine to get them on board?

So, there really isn't a REAL transcript of the July 25th call?

Or is there?

Always assumed that there was a transcript (call it Transcript 1). That they used voice recognition software and then cleaned that up as you would if you used your cell phone mic to create a text message.

Then under pressure thought trump got Barr to do more clean up to create a Transcript 2 that he released.

Always assumed that Transcript 1 was on the secure server and that we had subpoenaed it and would eventually see it.

Per WSJ..
He (Morrison) said he approached White House lawyers after the call ended to ask whether the rough transcript should be closely guarded to prevent its contents from becoming public. The transcript of the call, which was later released by the White House after questions were raised about the conversation, was ultimately placed on a secure server typically reserved for national-security secrets.

This sounds like there is really only one. In fact if you click on the link with the WSJ story you will see the one that dingbat released.

Sherrod Brown wasn't MY savior. Just saw

him on taped Maher show...

Sure many love him. Just thought he was "business as usual" no new thinking whatsoever.

Solid Dem...but not a "shaker-upper". And he said he really didn't want it SO much to pursue it.

Trump may be the first person at any level in human history

that actually committed an impeachable offense DURING an Impeachment hearing!!! (Witness tampering)

What the hell universe are we in where that isn't appalling and crazy to every human in the world.

I love Dem strategist Adam Parkhomenko!


If you want a funny take on things every day, sign up for his daily newsletter.



Happy Sunday. There are 351 days until the presidential election. Another embarrassing loss for Trumpland, when Trump gave Rudy’s goons a “secret mission” and Barr is a danger to the U.S.

Note: Hey, everybody. How was your Saturday? Ours was great, but we realized that taking a day off from doing this newsletter is a great way to gauge just how much awful stuff Trump is doing on a daily basis. It’s like every day the president of the United States takes a giant shit on the country and we take a big shovel and scoop it out and that’s TBS.

So now that we’re taking Saturdays off, that means an extra day of presidential shit piles up. So like we haven’t even talked about Roger Stone getting the book thrown at him. We haven’t talked about Trump pardoning murderous scum.

And we haven’t talked about this crazy dumb motherfucker trying to intimidate a witness WHILE SHE WAS TESTIFYING. Or the lesson that witness taught this nation about courage. And public service. And doing what’s right. (Don’t worry. We’ll find a way to bring all this patriotic good person talk back to the parable about feces piling up. Because hey, if there’s one thing we know people like, it’s spending part of their Sunday talking about trump taking shits on the country.

And you know you like picturing giant pies as if they came from some kind of human-elephant-cow hybrid. And we really want to dig in on the shoveling part and... ya know what, this has gotten a little out of hand. We’re just gonna stop right there. Hope everyone has a great Sunday. Except, ya know, the shitter.)

Note two: About Trump’s unexpected trip to Walter Reed yesterday for the first “phase” of his physical, yeah, they’re obviously lying. There’s a lot that’s off about this. But there’s a lot that’s off about Trump. He’s always seemed like sick piece of shit to us, so we weren’t surprised to hear something might be wrong. We encourage you all to pray for the president’s health. The outcome you might choose to pray for, however, is totally up to you.
