Re: Intelligence/Judiciary Impeachment Investigation: Trump Obstruction; Suborning Perjury; Whistleblower(s)

I wish someone would ask Morrison why he didn't go directly to a lawyer to sequester the first call Trump had with Zelensky but only the second call. :confused: Nothing wrong with the call, but I have to go directly to a lawyer and see about hiding the call. Well, he was honest about one thing Swalw...

Re: Intelligence/Judiciary Impeachment Investigation: Trump Obstruction; Suborning Perjury; Whistleblower(s)

I doubt the full meaning and implication of those statements his statements on threats, death and otherwise, were los...

Re: All the President's pardons

Not to put too fine a point on it, but, he wasn't pardoned. His sentence was commuted. And, Obama didn't commute a single sentence without strings attached - any subsequent conviction negates the commutation and the recipient would have to not only serve the rest of the commuted sentence, but also w...

Re: Intelligence/Judiciary Impeachment Investigation: Trump Obstruction; Suborning Perjury; Whistleblower(s)

Given that all these witnesses can identify specific people in the administration who clearly have direct evidence but are refusing to testify, is it possible that if/when it gets to the Senate, those individuals can be subpoenaed and then directed to testify by the Chief Justice?

Re: Trump - POTUS Tweets and Social Media

He's going to release a "transcript" of his first call with Zelensky and eventually that will become to his base the only transcript. And, it will not have any reference to any kind of investigations of the Bidens or pursuit of conspiracy theories about Ukraine framing Russia.

Re: Lev and Igor

I had wondered if Parnas had come to the realization that he is highly expendable. Seems he's at least smart enough to have figured out that much. He probably has no actual documentation to back up anything he would have to say as far as testifying in the impeachment inquiry.
