GOP Sen. Ron Johnson: 'My guess' is John Bolton is telling truth about Trump and Ukraine

Source: Raw Story

Sen. Ron Johnson (R-WI), who once personally lobbied President Donald Trump to release the hold on military aid to Ukraine, seemed to give former national security adviser John Bolton some credibility while talking with reports on Monday.

Politico’s Kyle Cheney reports that Johnson said that “my guess is John Bolton tells the truth,” although he said he still wanted to hear the Trump administration’s full case and also questioned the “exquisite” timing of the leak about Bolton’s upcoming book, in which he reportedly says Trump told him he was holding up military aid to Ukraine until it agreed to launch an investigation into former Vice President Joe Biden.

NY Times 5 Takeaways on Trump and Ukraine From John Bolton's Book

https://www.nytimes.com/2020/01/26/us/politics/john-bolton-trump-book-takeaways.html

* Mr. Trump tied his willingness to release aid to Ukraine on investigations he sought.

* Mr. Trump was at odds with his senior national security officials.

* Mr. Bolton says he talked to Mr. Barr and Mr. Pompeo about Mr. Giuliani.

* Mr. Bolton is willing to testify. The White House doesn’t want him to.

* The manuscript introduced a significant twist to the impeachment trial.

If the Senate does vote to hear from Mr. Bolton, the trial could stretch deep into February.

And despite overwhelming evidence that Trump sold out his country and his office republican
senators are still gonna let him walk and not call Bolton to testify. They know he is guilty, a
con man, and working for Putin but they don't care.

The Rude Pundit has summed it all up very nicely.

"And, frankly, Republicans are more obsessed with 2016 now than Democrats are because they know, they fucking know, that Trump's victory is illegitimate and they have to do everything in their power to not let that fact become viral."

Oh well time for me to call Rob Portman's office again.

Please tell me I am wrong and Trump tweeted the ...

... wrong # of people killed along side Kobe. He posted something like 3 others when it was 9.

Norm Ornstein ... on the GOP/Trump's lawyers arguments yesterday in front of the Senate

Norm is an old friend of my now late father and I asked him yesterday about team Trump's lawyers
arguments that the House Intel Committee could not issue subpoenas without a vote in the full House
and that the House's impeachment was not handled Constitutionally and these were his answers.

"The House delegates subpoena authority to committees on a regular basis. And the constitution says flatly that the House has sole power over impeachments. So the argument is bullshit."


Attn Mike Pompeo (aka Mike Pandejo) Turns out Mary Louise Kelly is an expert on geography.

Turns out Mary Louise Kelly is an expert on international matters.

From Wiki

Kelly graduated magna cum laude from Harvard University in 1993, with degrees in Government and French Literature. As a senior editor at The Harvard Crimson, she covered the 1992 Presidential election, including Bill Clinton's inauguration.[3]

In 1995 she completed her masters in European Studies at Cambridge University (Emmanuel College) in England.

From January 2009 to 2011, Kelly was National Public Radio's senior Pentagon correspondent, reporting on defense and foreign policy issues. As part of NPR's national security team, Kelly covered the Obama administration's approach to the wars in Afghanistan and the Iraq War. She also focused on how the U.S. projected its military power elsewhere in the world; how the U.S. reacted to, and dealt with, the emerging global military muscle of countries such as China; and the way in which U.S. foreign policy goals are often sought, and sometimes achieved, through defense and Intelligence agency channels.[7]

In 2016, Kelly returned to NPR as National Security Correspondent and guest host of Morning Edition and All Things Considered. She continued as a contributing editor at The Atlantic magazine and is working on her third novel.

Attn DU lawyers, law and order lawyers, and govt. process nerds ... Help me out.

Lawyer Philbin said this morning that a Congressional Committee had to have the
vote of the House before they issue a subpoena. That just doesn't sound right to
me and if that is false doesn't a large % of the rest of his argument suck dirty ditch
water?

The Rude Pundit has summed it all up very nicely.

When you look @ Jay Sekulow you're looking @ a Jesus scamming crook. "Jews for Jesus"

Sekulow and his family used the money they scammed from people who couldn't really afford to
donate for private jets, vacation homes, huge paydays, real estate, and sweetheart loans.

*************

Trump lawyer's firm steered millions in donations to family members, files show

Documents obtained by the Guardian reveal Jay Sekulow approved plans to push people to give to his Christian nonprofit, which then paid big sums to his family

snip

Documents obtained by the Guardian show Sekulow that month approved plans to push poor and jobless people to donate money to his Christian nonprofit, which since 2000 has steered more than $60m to Sekulow, his family and their businesses.

Telemarketers for the nonprofit, Christian Advocates Serving Evangelism (Case), were instructed in contracts signed by Sekulow to urge people who pleaded poverty or said they were out of work to dig deep for a “sacrificial gift”.

“I can certainly understand how that would make it difficult for you to share a gift like that right now,” they told retirees who said they were on fixed incomes and had “no extra money” – before asking if they could spare “even $20 within the next three weeks”.
