David Corn brings up a critical point, which Adam Schiff also addressed yesterday...

If a president tries to block a legitimate investigation of whether he committed treason and gave aid and comfort to an enemy that in and of itself could be considered an impeachable act...Nixon was impeached for attempting to thwart an investigation of his criminal activity.

Donald Trump was impeachable the day he took office: Two and a half years later, we're finally there

https://www.salon.com/2019/09/28/donald-trump-was-impeachable-the-day-he-took-office-two-and-a-half-years-later-were-finally-there/

On Jan. 20, 2017, immediately after giving his inaugural address, Donald J. Trump and his wife Melania, who had just become the First Lady, climbed the steps of the Capitol and made their way to their places on the dais of the congressional luncheon traditionally given to the newly inaugurated president of the United States. It is usually a joyous occasion, especially for the new president. His long campaign is finally over. He has completed the transition. Some of his cabinet secretaries have already testified at their confirmation hearings, as Jeff Sessions, the nominee for attorney general, had already done. Later in the day, the new president would make the drive along Pennsylvania Avenue, take up residence in the White House and officially occupy the Oval Office, signifying the power and prestige of having been elected president of the United States.

A few moments after the new president and his first lady took their seats, the cameras found them sitting behind a row of flowers looking like they had just been told of a death in the family. Both of their mouths were downturned, their eyes were downcast, and Trump had his arms crossed like a child who had been told to finish eating his peas. I wondered that day what could have made the new president of the United States and his wife look so unhappy at such a joyous occasion, and now we know the answer. He knew this day was coming.

He knew things we didn’t know on that day about what he had done to get elected. He knew about the meeting in Trump Tower held by his own son and son-in-law and campaign manager and several Russians who had come offering “dirt” on his opponent, Hillary Clinton. He knew that people from his own campaign had met with a Russian national and given him polling data from Midwestern states that were being closely contested. He knew that elements of the Russian government were involved in supporting his campaign by placing ads on social media platforms in the very Midwestern states covered by the polling data they had been given. He knew that emails hacked from the Democratic National Committee by Russian intelligence operatives had been released to divert attention from the so-called “Access Hollywood” tape. And he knew that during the transition, the man who would become his national security adviser had met with the Russian ambassador and spoken with him by phone immediately after President Obama had imposed sanctions on Russia for interfering in our elections, assuring him that the Russians had nothing to worry about because Trump would lift the sanctions when he became president.

Trump was impeachable after his own inauguration, and on the day he asked James Comey to shut down the investigation of Michael Flynn, his national security adviser, who was accused of having lied about his conversation with the Russian ambassador about lifting the sanctions on Russia. He was impeachable on the day he fired Comey as FBI director, after Comey had revealed that Trump and his campaign had been the subjects of a criminal and counterintelligence investigation for more than nine months. He was impeachable a few days later, when he admitted on national television that he had fired Comey in an attempt to stop the Russia investigation. He was impeachable on the day after he fired Comey and told the Russian ambassador and foreign minister that by firing Comey, the “pressure” of the Russia investigation had been lifted.

One look at Trump's Twitter feed this morning lets you know this fucker is GONE.

Can you imagine if these Do Nothing Democrat Savages, people like Nadler, Schiff, AOC Plus 3, and many more, had a Republican Party who would have done to Obama what the Do Nothings are doing to me. Oh well, maybe next time!

Little Lindsey has a golf date today with Putin's asset

Read it on Twitter last night, some remark from Graham about how they're going to play golf, "discuss the weather, and the whistleblower thing."

I imagine Lindsey will encourage him to stay "strong" and "punch back" and keep his focus on continuing to "make America great again," although I did notice that the upcoming MAGAt rally in Minneapolis is being billed as a "KEEP America Great Again" rally, his 2020 campaign slogan.

And because Trump will have a "sympathetic ear," I imagine he'll unload on Lindsey, and the floodgates will open for an 18-hole airing of grievances.

New MAGAt rally scheduled for Oct. 10 in Minneapolis...

President @realDonaldTrump will host a #KeepAmericaGreat rally on Thursday, October 10 at 7:00 pm CDT at the Target Center in Minneapolis, MN.

Posting the info without a link to "Team Trump," because why give them the clicks?

Now we know when and where the cork will be pulled from the impeachment blow-hole.

It’s hard to think of a more brazen act of betrayal than a president in the Oval Office laughing with reps of a foreign govt that attacked the US and saying he didn’t give a damn about it. Congress must investigate ASAP & resolve this. This trumps all.

Jonathan Alter on Lawrence O'Donnell: 2016 Russian interference was "a cyber Pearl Harbor."

If you're a regular here, there's nothing new...we've been discussing it daily.

But a moment ago, Jonathan Alter was discussing the WaPo story about Trump being "unconcerned" about Russian interference in 2016 and said "This was a CYBER PEARL HARBOR," and it hit me with a new level of impact.

Today's moment of Zen is courtesy of Mr. Lawrence O'Donnell, RE: the 2020 SOTU address.

@Lawrence

In January Trump is more likely to be in the middle of an impeachment trial in the Senate instead of giving a State of the Union address.
