Trump raised Biden with Xi in June call housed in highly secure server

Trump can say what he wants about me, but it's outrageous that any president would sell out the people of Hong Kong behind closed doors. The public must see the transcript of Trump's call with Xi. And we need a leader who will stand up for our values.

JUST IN: Schiff calls Trump's public requests to China and Ukraine "fundamental breach" of office

Trump turning a WH (taxpayer funded) event on Medicare into campaign rally: “These are maniacs. Elizabeth, Pocohantas. When I used to hit her, I thought she was done. But she came back from the ashes. Now I’m gonna have to do it again because I don’t see Sleepy Joe making it.”

Trump was booed during his speech in FL today. Actual sustained boos. Sweaty, angry & bloated he looked bizarre in his suit. A kaftan or medical gown would be more appropriate. His "burn it all down" behavior will keep driving his polls #s down to 30%, then Congress will dump him

Dear @SecPompeo: I served with you in Congress. You seemed like a decent public servant. You love our country. Is this how you want to be remembered in American history books? There is still time to do the right thing. Thank you for your consideration.

"Let's be frank: a national nightmare is upon us," @ChuckTodd said tonight. "The basic rules of our democracy are under attack, from the President."

A Trump hotel mystery: Giant reservations followed by empty rooms

Opinion: The U.S. has shouting matches over North Korea. South Koreans actually live with the threat.

Trump suspended military aid. That made Zelensky realize he doesn't have a reliable partner in DC. As such, he began making a deal with the Russian separatists. The People are pissed

Bernie Sanders, 78, canceled events until further notice after being hospitalized.

TRUMP on Adam Schiff: "They should look at him for treason."

Whiskey, cheese and wine...enough already !..impeach

Robin Hayes, a former North Carolina congressman and state Republican Party chairman, has pleaded guilty to "making a false statement to the FBI" during a federal campaign finance probe, the DOJ says

Airbus plant in Alabama spared fallout from U.S. tariffs

Outgoing U.S. ambassador to Moscow has called on Russia to release Paul Whelan, citing "deteriorating health" and "the lack of any evidence whatsoever."

ICYMI: President Trump lashed out @Reuters reporter @jeffmason1 when he asked about what he wanted his Ukrainian counterpart, Volodymyr Zelenskiy, to do when Trump brought up the Ukraine business ties of Joe Biden’s son Hunter

They're chanting "No to capitulation". They see Zelensky as giving into Russia. This is why Zelensky was kissing Trump's ass during that phone call. He was desperate for the military aid and needed to know he had the backing of the United States to support his troops.

Judge Andrew Napolitano: Trump’s call with Ukraine president manifests criminal and impeachable behavior

Odd markings, ellipses fuel doubts about the ‘rough transcript’ of Trump’s Ukraine call

Biden to Trump: 'You're not going to destroy me'

"The president used Pence to tell Zelensky that US aid was still being withheld while demanding action on corruption. At that time — following Trump’s call with Zelenksy — Ukraine probably understood action on corruption to include investigating Biden"

My new @BW piece: Trump's impeachment saga stems from a right-wing hit job gone bad -- an anti-Biden project funded with Mercer family money that Trump and Giuliani hijacked, only to have it blow up on them:

So @ErinBanco and @maxwelltani got a page from the State Department oppo dossier that Rudy fed to Pompeo. It appears to show John Solomon sending an advance copy of one of his Ukraine stories to Joe diGenova, Victoria Toensing, and Lev Parnas

By the way, Rudy is admitting to manufacturing White House logos and sticking them on non-White House documents and pushing the real government to act on them.

If kneeling for the National Anthem at a football game is unpatriotic, what would you call travelling around the world trying to discredit the men and women serving in the American intelligence and law enforcement community?

"The sentence 'every week brings a shocking new revelation' is supposed to apply to Trump. But now it also applies to his attorney general and personal fixer. Enough."

Giuliani consulted on Ukraine with imprisoned Paul Manafort via a lawyer

Commander Pence, for aficionados of #TheHandsmaidsTale, is now fully implicated in Trump’s most clearly impeachable offense. Trump is using Pence as a human shield. He’s telling the Senate: If you bring me down, you’ll make @SpeakerPelosi president.

Watch this clip, Trump has gone full-blown Taxi Driver.

Trump repeatedly says in Oval Office rant: Adam Schiff ‘couldn’t carry’ Mike Pompeo’s jockstrap

Things roll differently in the Trump team. But I cannot believe VP Pence would hold a meeting with Zelensky without first reading what Trump said to Zelensky just beforehand. No way. Transcript was very short ! It’s a long flight to Warsaw.

BREAKING: Dodo Bird consults with Jail Bird to help Cuckoo Bird.

As frustrated as you all are. Take a moment to think of the hundreds (thousands?) of intelligence professionals in your country that know everything, every little treasonous act... And must remain silent professionals. To them, I salute. You will be vindicated, and soon.


Giuliani consulted on Ukraine with imprisoned Paul Manafort via a lawyer

The strategy (or lack thereof) of @realDonaldTrump towards North Korea has not worked. The North Koreans just fired a submarine-launched ballistic missile design.

To date, the most damaging material by far about Trump's wrongful behavior in the Trump/Ukraine-gate was the publication of the Trump-Zelensky transcript. Conspiracy theorists should ponder whether the real "enemy of Trump" is someone very close to him in the White House.

If Trump Goes Down, He’s Taking Everyone With Him

Rudy just said George Soros! Everybody drink!

ICYMI: The House continues working on legislation to help Americans. -Lowering prescription drug costs -Rebuilding our infrastructure -Clean government and voting rights -Gun safety We’ll work with anyone on these issues. Including the president. We have a country to run.

Donald Trump, at his absolute worst

This idea that Pence (or anyone else in the Administration who was living and breathing) didn’t know about Trump’s effort to pressure Zelensky to destroy Biden is BANANAS. Guiliani was publicly bragging about pressuring Ukraine on Trump’s behalf in May. Everybody knew.

Clinton to people caught up on Donald Trump impeachment: "Tell the truth."

Trump Is Going to Burn Down Everything and Everyone, and Republicans, That Means You.

People are focusing on the WH internal politics, but there's a bigger story. Reporting now says Ukraine was explicitly told their funding was dependent on interfering in the election by investigating Biden's son.

Sen. Angus King says his staffers read aloud the transcript released by the WH of the conversation between Trump & Ukraine’s president and it lasted 10min. 40sec. but the call lasted 30min. “If there was no translator…what’s in the other 20min. of that discussion?” he asked.


Oh look it’s the presidents free lawyer consulting with the president now jailed campaign manager

All we’re saying is unite behind the science and listen to the scientists. Either you stand behind the Paris Agreement and the IPCC, or you don’t. In this case there’s no middle ground. You must include the full picture. As explained in this speech

To all those repeating the "lifted millions out of poverty" trope: "By the time Mao died in 1976, living standards for the population were lower than in 1949". The Communist Party calls 1949 a liberation. But China was far freer beforehand.
