Donald Trump on Ukrainian Telephone Call

November 16, 2019. Former ambassador to Ukraine, Marie Yovanovitch testifies before Congess and  puts on a stellar performance. In a low key and mild mannered demeanor, the former Ambassador makes her case. She expressed concerns over the shadow State Department activities of Rudy Giuilania, Sondland and others..


The Ambassador ends her testimony by expressing dismay on the smear campaign of her by Rudy Giuliana. Donakd Trump, Tuump Jr. And other Ukrainian operatives.  She simply wanted to know why did they have to smear her name after 33 years of service to our government?

She also made it clear that the State Department is being hollowed out, and in a competitive atmosphere it stands to lose senior level officials. The country is in peril of losing its brightest and experienced diplomats.

The resolution gives the minority the same rights to question witnesses that the majority has, " as has been true at every step of the inquiry," Democrats said in a fact sheet about the measure.

Impeachment is Coming for Donald Trump

How Things Stand:


  • White House official testifies: Army Lt. Col. Alexander Vindman, the White House's top Ukraine expert, testified at a closed-door deposition today. He planned to tell lawmakers he was so troubled by President Trump's July phone call with Ukraine's president that he reported his concerns to a superior, according to a copy of his statement obtained by CNN.


  • Deadline paused: The DC Circuit Court of Appeals paused the deadline this week the Justice Department had to turn over grand jury secrets from the Mueller probe to the House.

White House Transcript Was Edited

Lt. Col. Alexander S. Vindman, who heard President Trump’s July phone call with Ukraine’s president and was alarmed, testified that he tried and failed to add key details to the rough transcript.

A Guide to Impeachment

  • What Impeachment Is: Impeachment is charging a holder of public office with misconduct. Here are answers to seven key questions about the process.                         
  • What the Accusation Is: President Trump is accused of breaking the law by pressuring the president of Ukraine to look into former Vice President Joseph R. Biden Jr., a potential Democratic opponent in the 2020 election. A second person, this one with “firsthand knowledge” of Mr. Trump’s dealings with Ukraine, came forward and is now protected as a whistle-blower.                         
  • What Was Said: The White House released a reconstructed transcript of Mr. Trump’s call to President Volodymyr Zelensky of Ukraine.                         
  • A Visual Timeline: Here are the key figures and dates as Mr. Trump and his allies pressured Ukraine to investigate his political opponents.                         
  • Why Now: A whistle-blower complaint filed in August said that White House officials believed they had witnessed Mr. Trump abuse his power for political gain. Here are 8 takeaways from the complaint.                         
  • How Trump Responds: The president said the impeachment battle would be “a positive” for his re-election campaign. Mr. Trump has repeatedly referred to the whistle-blower as “crooked” and condemned the news media reporting on the complaint. At the beginning of October, Mr. Trump publicly called on China to examine Mr. Biden as well.

Vindman says White House omitted Trump’s reference to Biden tapes in transcript of Zelensky call.


The National Security Council’s top Ukraine expert told House impeachment investigators on Tuesday that he tried to make changes to the White House’s rough transcript of the July phone call between President Donald Trump and Ukraine’s President, including that Trump mentioned tapes of former Vice President Joe Biden, according to a source familiar with the matter.


Lt. Col. Alexander Vindman testified that one example of his attempts to change the transcript was to include Trump telling Ukraine President Volodymyr Zelensky there were tapes of Biden, which The New York Times reported occurred where there’s an ellipsis in the transcript that was released. The change was not made. The assertion that some portion of the conversation was replaced by an ellipsis contradicts the White House’s statement in September that the ellipses in the transcript did not represent missing words or phrases. It also contradicts the President who has insisted the transcript the White House released was an exact depiction of the call, even though the memo itself describes it as rough.

How the OMB Used its Powers to Delay Ukraine Aid

Acting Chief of Staff to Trump

Order to withhold the funds came directly from the President.


Mick Mulvaney played a hand in the corruption to withhold funding from the Ukrainians.


Acting OMB Director Russell Vought tweeted Oct. 21 that neither he nor Michael P. Duffey, OMB’s associate director for national security programs, would show up for closed-door depositions. The two were subpoenaed on Friday. Last month, two House committees wrote to OMB seeking information on the withholding of foreign aid to Ukraine and other State Department accounts, and related documents called apportionments that would show decisions about the timing of expenditures. OMB has provided some of the information, but it hasn’t been made public.

Former Congressman John Conyers (MI) Dies

One of the founding members of the CBC

Former Rep. John Conyers, Longest-Serving Black Member Of Congress, Dies At 90.


A statement sent to HuffPost on Sunday on behalf of Conyers’ family said that the “world lost a fearless civil rights leader and hero.” 

“Congressman Conyers was a devoted father and husband and his world revolved around securing justice against racial and economic discrimination,” the statement said. “His legacy and advocacy for human rights will live on forever. We thank you for the outpouring of support and love at this difficult time.”

Conyers ― born in Highland Park, Michigan, in 1929 ― was the longest-serving Black representative in the history of the House. He took office at the peak of the civil rights movement, and helped create the Congressional Black Caucus and introduced the landmark Voting Rights Act of 1965 that outlawed discriminatory voting practices.

“My husband was a fighter,” Monica Conyers, his wife, said in a statement. “When your back was up against a wall, he was right there with you. Not just for me, but for everyone.”

John Conyers was also one of the many civil rights leaders to walk alongside Martin Luther King Jr. in Selma, Alabama, to fight for voting rights. The congressman successfully introduced legislation to mark King’s birthday as a national holiday.

“For a long time he was Black America’s congressman,” Sam Riddle, longtime friend and consultant to the Conyers family, told The Detroit Free Press. “On the streets of Detroit, he’ll be mourned.”

During his final three years in office, Conyers was the “dean” of the House, a title given to the longest continuously serving member.

ISIS leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi Dies

Detonated a bonb to avoid capture

October 22, 2019.   With the delivery of a third grader, Trump reads statement on the death of Isis leader with help from Kurdish people whom he just displaced..


In Trumpian fashion, Trump only notified GOP leaders of the operation. Trump told the nation in a televised address from the White House that US forces killed a "large number" of Islamic State militants during the raid which culminated in cornering Baghdadi in a tunnel, where he set off a suicide vest.

"He ignited his vest, killing himself," Trump said.

"He died after running into a dead end tunnel, whimpering and crying and screaming all the way," Trump said, adding that three of Baghdadi's children also died in the blast.

Trump said that the raid -- which required flying more than an hour by helicopter in both directions from an undisclosed base -- had been accomplished by help from Russia, Syria, Turkey and Iraq.

John Kelly Tried to Warn Trump

John Kelly says he told Trump a 'yes man' would get him impeached

image143

SEA ISLAND, Georgia — John Kelly warned President Trump that hiring a “yes man” to succeed him as White House chief of staff would lead to impeachment and, in hindsight, regrets his decision to resign.

House Democrats launched an impeachment inquiry into Trump less than a year after Kelly departed the administration. The retired, four-star Marine general suggested the blame lies squarely with acting White House chief of staff Mick Mulvaney and other advisers who are unable, or unwilling, to keep the president out of trouble. 

Kelly, 69, said he privately cautioned Trump during his final days on the job that he would be impeached if he did not tap a chief of staff with the fortitude to check the president’s bad impulses. Kelly said he does not believe the president would be in this predicament had he stayed. 

“I said, whatever you do — and we were still in the process of trying to find someone to take my place — I said whatever you do, don’t hire a ‘yes man,’ someone who won’t tell you the truth — don’t do that. Because if you do, I believe you will be impeached,” Kelly recalled in an interview at the Sea Island Summit, a political conference hosted by the Washington Examiner.

A war of words broke out Saturday between President Donald Trump and John Kelly after the former White House chief of staff said he warned his boss that replacing him with a “yes man” would lead to his impeachment. 

“I said, whatever you do — and we were still in the process of trying to find someone to take my place — I said whatever you do, don’t hire a ‘yes man,’ someone who won’t tell you the truth — don’t do that,” Kelly told the Washington Examiner at a conference in Sea Island, Georgia. “Because if you do, I believe you will be impeached.”
