“The evidence collected paints the picture of a President who abused his power to press a foreign country to interfere in the 2020 election. The next phase will move from closed depositions to open hearings where the American people will learn about the President’s misconduct” (House Judiciary Dems, 29.10.2019).
Today there was yet another defeating testimony, that again validated the quid pro qou case. Where President Donald J. Trump used the state aid or military aid to Ukraine as clause to ensure that foreign powers did investigate into Hunter Biden, an US citizen involved in businesses in Ukraine.
The whole scandal has from day-one sounded bad. But by everything revealed to the public made it worse. The MEMCOM, the text messages, the leaked pieces of the testimony from Fiona Hill, foreign envoy Sonderland, William B. Tayor and now Alexander Vindland. All of them has collaborated the same story. Just their side of it and it’s not sounding good.
All of it indicates the misuse of power for personal gains. This is a impeachable offence and the House Committee’s has tried to investigate it properly. However, the stone-walling and the use of executive privilege has been out of this world. While his having secret backchannels and other avenues of sharing information, even through his own personal attorney Rudy Guiliani and the aide of Devin Nunes. There are even two aides of Guiliani that is already behind bars. Therefore, this scandal is full blown already and the proceedings hasn’t started yet. Not the public ones, but the information and evidence they have gathered. Will surely sound interesting, when the public hearings start!
The motion from the Committee has to be taken to the House and has to get enough votes to pass. But if people care about the Constitution and the Laws of the Republic. Than they should vote for it. To test the Presidency and show it to the public. All the collected evidence and not only the small drops in the public. Which is damning enough. As there are enough play and pay, here already.
The President knows this, his allies knows this and the Republican Party knows too. But they are trying to shift blame on the process and the way its done. Even if the Committee’s has followed the protocol to the book and the White House has not answered to subpoenas or any of the questioning sent to them. That is why all the previous attempts has been sent to court. Where most of it is still in the process awaiting verdicts, if not pushed to discovery or anything else, than an official release of the documentation that is needed.
That is why its high time the Impeachment Inquiry go public and gets into the final stages. Gets through in the House and the Senate. So, that the representatives, the ones whose lawmakers can finalize and also question the man himself. In front of the cameras, in front of the public and C-Span. So, there is no denying the facts or the statements told. Where they nay-sayers cannot question it. But see it for what it is.
Surely, this is not what many envisioned, but seems like the natural step. As every person involved or has testified. Has amplified the same story and shown the evidence for it. Therefore, the Committee’s are only doing the right thing. Than to get the proper function and continue the proceedings. As the White House and President is not forthcoming with their side or their paperwork in this regard. Peace.
President Donald J. Trump who has already been investigated in the Russian Probe, which was dodged and botched by all means. Is now trying to do the same thing to the Ukrainian investigation, which is made by the United States House Committee’s. Where he even orders and supports in-house rebellion to storm a closed session of the investigation in-front of a bi-partisan group of representatives, both Republican and Democrats. This was also a hold of a new witness to speak there too.
Therefore, we know the Republicans and the President is desperate, when he sends his lackey Mike Gaetz and 30 other representatives who don’t care about the rules or stipulations about these hearings. Neither about the rules of telecommunication and so on. They don’t care, as long as they stall or ensure trouble around the investigation itself. That is becoming to hot for the Presidency.
As the former envoy and ambassador to Ukraine William B. Taylor statements about a irregular back-channel of information in concern of intelligence and also verified the quid-pro-quo. If the Ukrainian President ensured an investigation into Hunter Biden, than the Ukrainian state would get the military assistance the US had suspended. That was the arrangement.
This has already been seen in the MEMCOM of the call between Donald J. Trump and also the released text messages between many of the involved in the scandal. All evidence points to this and the envoy Taylor verified that yesterday. That’s why the GOP and the handlers of Trump is so stressed.
We know this is bad, because most of the departments, close associates to the President is not releasing the subpoenaed documents. The ones involved are not doing so, even as the associates to the lawyer of the President Rudy Giuliani is behind bars awaiting trial. While more and more people are being served time to witness before the committee. Therefore, the onion is being peeled and the evidence is very clear.
There was shady business, that is easy to see by the MEMCOM, Text Messages and the statement of Taylor. Combined with the testimony of Fiona Hill and who knows what else will come up. Who else who will leave more details and stories. Which implicates the President and his administration more. There is also talks of an aide of Rep. Devin Nunes was involved indirectly feeding documents to Trump through another back-channel to Kiev. Surely, the mess just get worse by the minute and that why the GOP had to make a fuzz at the Capitol Hill today.
This one is showing how the scandal has become such a big deal. Why the Trump Administration cannot run away from this investigation and why the US Committee has to push it through and dig deep. Not give way or stop halfway. They got to find all the details and compel a grand case. As the Senate might give-in. As they are all loyal to Trump, even if it means defying the congress out of loyalty to the President. They are putting one man ahead of the rule of law and justice. Because, they need the White House to have any significant power, by all means. That is what that would mean.
That even as the Ukrainian scandal goes through, the impeachment proceedings, as the President and his men ordered and fixed this. Trump cannot answer this and thinks he can get away with it. Especially, as long as the party stands behind him and his cronies are tagging along. But how many of them must fall or answer to their crimes, before the buck stops? When is it enough?
What does it take before the evidence of conspiracy is deep enough to break the confidence in the President. Because right now, a paper-trail of Mount Everest doesn’t seem enough. Which says more about the Republicans, than the world right now. Peace.
