Re: The whistleblower's complaint
I'm not very confident of that fact. The only real weight of our Constitution is our tacit agreement to abide by it. History has shown that has been ignored in the past. There was even a war as well as explicit flaunting of the provisions by several Presidents. If we look at world history there are even examples of a Nations Military siding with what they saw as a Leader over whatever was written in the Nation State's Constitution.

Re: The whistleblower's complaint
What I meant was that he is old and eats too many hamburgers.

If he tries such a thing we can broach this subject again.


Eschew obfuscation. Habituate elucidation.

Sure, Russian Interference is OK
BUSTED: Trump told Russia he was not concerned about their election interferencePublished

quote:
"President Trump told two senior Russian officials in a 2017 Oval Office meeting that he was unconcerned about Moscow’s interference in the U.S. election because the United States did the same in other countries, an assertion that prompted alarmed White House officials to limit access to the remarks to an unusually small number of people, according to three former officials with knowledge of the matter,” The Washington Post reported Friday evening.

“The comments, which have not been previously reported, were part of a now-infamous meeting with Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov and Russian ambassador Sergey Kislyak, in which Trump revealed highly classified information that exposed a source of intelligence on the Islamic State. He also said during the meeting that firing FBI Director James B. Comey the day before had relieved ‘great pressure’ on him,” the newspaper noted.

About this impeachment thing, the Kremlin has some concerns
As reported by the New York Times, the Kremlin hopes no Trump/Putin phone calls are made public.

What should our answer be? Why, of course, Kremlin, no problem. We'll be sure to keep your nefarious manipulation of our national dupe out of the public spotlight.

Not.

More info
Has this one come out in the States yet ?

https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-us-canada-49871909

A BBC reporter has spoken to a former Ukrainian prosecutor, who told the reporter that he had met Donald Trump's personal lawyer Rudy Giuliani, who asked him if it was possible to investigate the Bidens in his country.


Could there be any greater conceit, than for someone to believe that the universe has to be simple enough for them to be able to understand it ?

Re: More info
Kinda Sorta.

It's certainly ONE of the things currently under examination. But there are also what could be far bigger issue such as it seems there may be documents of conversations between Trump and foreign parties that was withheld from the Muller investigation.

Re: More info
I hadn't hear that particular nugget. If true it would ensure impeachment.
But Moscow Mitch will still have his back.

Re: More info
It's even more interesting since it would almost certainly also include Pence and Barr as well as other official and personal individuals.

‘Retaliation in plain sight’: Legal experts stunned by Trump admitting he’s trying to uncover whistleblower ID

quote:
President Donald Trump once again ramped up his attacks on a still-unidentified intelligence community whistleblower by telling reporters that he and his allies are “trying to find out” the person’s identity.



(Those are the whistleblower's lawyers)

We are officially a country without law.

Dems now have the option of adding witness intimidation to the articles of impeachment.

Prophesies of Trump self-impeaching are coming true. He's doing it right out in public.

"Doing so is a violation of federal law."

So what's the violation of one more federal law to Trump? He's run out of room for any more notches on his belt (and he does have a very long belt).

Speaking of which, does anybody know the status on getting Trump's tax returns and loan documents from Deutsche Bank?

Edited by dwise1, : "Speaking of which" The mind is after all much quicker than the typing fingers.

On a weird note...
Apparently, one of Trump’s suggestions for the border (as well as shooting migrants in the legs) is a water filled trench stocked with alligators and snakes:

That would be a great idea. At this point, we would be happy with Timothy Dalton.

However, I think our own Impossible Mission Force has already helped us out. Apparently, one of their agents put on a Trump mask and admitted to impeachable offenses.

Re: On a weird note...
this is the kind of stuff that normally would cause a rational person to say "that's too crazy to believe" but in the age of trump nothing is too crazy.
