Rudy has exposure in many counts and countries. The thing that may save him is that he is central to everything illegal that has gone on involving Flynn, Manafort, the Turks and their Russian oligarch friends. He is really dirty and could bring down a lot with him.


Apparently as thing gets even worse the circle the wagons around the traitor strategy is to throw Rudy, Sondland and Mulvaney under the bus.

This is going to get fruity fast.Big smile

The impeachment inquiry is going swimmingly. Lots of people having been deposed and one notable one revising his deposition due to criminal exposure for his lies being exposed. Almost all of the transcripts have now been released and it is not pretty, what is coming from them. Republicans are now huddled into a corner trembling and shouting that they dont want to play any more.

The process moves into the next phase next week when public testimony begins. Here everyone can have the opportunity to hear directly from witnesses what they know or saw. Actual lawyers will be conducting the questioning of witnesses.

Don't worry Shammy, not even Diogenes and his famous lantern could find an honest Republican in Washington to convict this crook, even if he murdered someone on Fifth Avenue in front of a hundred witnesses.

He was shut down by the corrupt Barr but not before he farmed out a lot of investigations to ther jurisdictions. Barr has tried to knock them down but all this Giuliani/Ukraine/Turkey stuff that is coming out is his work passed on to the House Intelligence Committee through the Mueller/DOJ counterintelligence investigation McCabe and others.

Sounds like Mueller held back the best stuff for when it does the most damage.
Or maybe the shackles are off now that impeachment hearing have started and he feels he can let it all out

Open hearings to start next week or two Whale. Even Trumpkins who are starting to drop off the Orange Traitor will be shocked at what comes out. My tip is that Mr Mueller will be the star of the show. All the stuff coming out from the closed door testimony has echoes of his work.

Yes back then there was still the ethos of what’s good for the country being important. Not so much now. I think once the public hear the various witnesses the polls in favour of impeachment will only get wider. I think it’s fascinating to try and work out what Trump will do. Take them all with him would seem the most likely at the moment.

Opinion polls strongly support impeachment Baguette, around 54% and 49% support impeachment and removal. At this stage Nixon was around 38% and Clinton 35%, so Trump is winning bigly on the impeachment support race.

Opinion will determine where it goes. They need Republicans to put Trump's interest behind them to convict, and for personal interest through public support for Republicans to turn on him. Today he has Republicans in tight states at the White House and he is giving them cash payments to not convict him(Politico). Incredible how corrupt the system is.

I still think censure is a better option but the evidence is so startling that conviction is a real option when public testimony starts in a few weeks. That is what turned them against Nixon, overwhelming evidence of criminality that Republicans could not defend. This current crop of Republicans is much worse than they were in the 70's though.

How’s the opinion polls going PT? The crazed Trumpsters are not going to be enough to get sone of Republican senators re elected so enough may turn on Trump to actually get rid of him for good if public opinion is strong enough against him. I don’t think Trump will resign like Nixon.

Good point.

Actually they put out an excellent very high quality video last week about a minute long that outlined the story so far.

I think there will be more videos and PowerPoint type presentations, kept as simple as possible.

They think/hope most can follow this.


A = Abuse of power (using office for personal benefit)
B = Betrayal of national security (compromising U.S. ally)
C = Corruption of U.S. elections



Good but they need to present that visually in a 3 panel cartoon.Wink

Press Releases

Four Chairs Statement on Resolution for Open Hearings on Trump’s Abuse of Power

f t # e
Washington, October 29, 2019

Washington, DC – Today, Rep. Adam B. Schiff, the Chairman of the Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence, Rep. Jerrold Nadler, the Chairman of the Judiciary Committee, Rep. Eliot L. Engel, the Chairman of the Committee on Foreign Affairs, and Rep. Carolyn Maloney, the Acting Chairwoman of the Committee on Oversight and Reform, issued the following statement:

“The House impeachment inquiry has collected extensive evidence and testimony, and soon the American people will hear from witnesses in an open setting.  The resolution introduced today in the House Rules Committee will provide that pathway forward. 

“The resolution provides rules for the format of open hearings in the House Intelligence Committee, including staff-led questioning of witnesses, and it authorizes the public release of deposition transcripts.

“The resolution also establishes procedures for the transfer of evidence to the Judiciary Committee as it considers potential articles of impeachment, and it sets forth due process rights for the President and his Counsel in the Judiciary Committee proceedings.

“The evidence we have already collected paints the picture of a President who abused his power by using multiple levers of government to press a foreign country to interfere in the 2020 election. Following in the footsteps of previous impeachment inquiries, the next phase will move from closed depositions to open hearings where the American people will learn firsthand about the President’s misconduct.”

Only the best people.

This will be bad. A National Security official in the room who heard the phone calls first hand and reported them to lawyers at the time, defying WH to testify tomorrow.

A WH national security official to tell congress on Tuesday he heard Trump appeal to Ukraine’s president to investigate his leading political rival, a request the aide considered so damaging to American interests that he reported:
