It is something magnificent with the Trump Presidency, they are black-balling, hunch-backed administration, which is doing the illegal things and not getting sanctions against it. Maybe, the final strike was the wet-dream of the Presidency to hurt his enemies and the political elite in the Democratic Party. However, this seems now to back-fire.
President Donald J. Trump called President Zelenskyy of Ukraine, what has been released was an “Memorandum of the Telephone Conversation”, a memo of the call, which lasted for 30 minutes and is only 5 pages. This is clearly not an transcript, because than the details of the conversation would been more hectic, more sounds and sound-bites, which is not there. That is why this isn’t an transcript in my opinion, but a MEMCOM.
We know by the little memo released from the phone conversation, it still says enough to strike what was idea behind the call from the US President who said this: “Rudy very much knows what’s happening and he is a very capable guy. If you could speak to him that would be great. The former ambassador from the United states,·the woman, was bad news and the people she was dealing with in the Ukraine were bad news so I just what to let you know that the other thing, there’s a lot of talk about Biden’s son, that Biden stopped the prosecution and a lot of people want to find out about that so whatever you can do with the Attorney General would be great. Biden went around bragging that he stopped the prosecution so if you can look into it … It sounds horrible to me”.
Later he says this to the Ukrainian President: “I will have Mr. Giuliani give you a call and I am. Also going to have Attorney General Barr call and we will get to the bottom of it. I’m sure you will figure it out. I heard the prosecutor was treated very badly and he was a very fair prosecutor so good luck with everything”.
This here to extracts show enough, even if it is a MEMCOM. The memo, not a transcript says enough. That he guided and directed the Ukrainian President to call and set fourth an investigation into the son of Joe Biden. That is clearly directing a foreign force to investigate political opponents. Surely enough, this is illegal activity. There shouldn’t be any other way to look at it.
That the US Representatives in Congress is starting an inquiry into impeachment, which will look into this even further. Again, it shows how the Presidency, how the President want to engage abroad for his own personal agenda and grudges. Just like he told the Russian to please leak the Hillary Clinton e-mails. This is the same thing again, a hit-job against another possible Presidential Candidate, Biden.
There is nothing else to see here, someone whose conspiring with foreign nations for his own personal good. His trying to get the son of another political convicted and prosecuted, thus hurting Joe Biden as he tries to stand as a candidate. Someone who doesn’t need help with that, he does it better on his own two feet. President Trump should be aware and should know, that this will not be easy for him and that the realities are hitting hard.
This is own self-made acts of a conniving president, who acts willingly and uses his own state apparatus to directly involve foreign powers to intervene on his behalf to hurt and destroy political opponents. That is what he did and this he cannot run away from. The MEMCOM says so. Peace.
I know that the one time the world was following an impeachment of an American President, live and in living-colour was back in the 1990s. Those was the days of Kool-Aid and a Presidential Affair turned into a Constitutional Crisis. This because the Republican Senators and Representatives took their shot at the Democratic Party President William J. Clinton.
They started impeachment inquiry in December 1998 over his affair in the oval office with a White House Intern Monica Lewinsky. By the end of February 2019, the whole case got acquitted, even after strong intentions and will from both Ken Starr and others to get rid Clinton. Still, it didn’t work.
Today in 2019 were seeing a move in this way today’s lucky bastard, Donald J. Trump, whose character and actions can be put into question. As his will to use Russian help, coordinated efforts and the investigation of over 2 years have shown. Still, the Congress is hell-bent on not acting upon it.
So, by this definition, in the 1990s a blow-job by an intern is more dire, than actually a foreign intervention and direct corrupt behaviour of present day government. Surely, in hindsight, people will say they would have supported the impeachment of Trump. But right now, the gravy-train, the slow train of reform isn’t there. It wasn’t as needed, as the strike and the fury of the acts of Clinton.
Sure, it was bad. He destroyed nearly his marriage to Hillary. He showed a lack of character and that he could misuse his power to get a happy ending. Well, the current day President has gotten a lot more and done a lot more in return. The President haven’t tried to stop a possible intervention in the up-coming elections in 2020. Neither has he tried to make the sanctions nor react to all the intelligence shown, that the Russians did interfere the previous election for the benefit of Trump.
Also, the obvious case of obstruction of justice, the ill-behaviour and the misuse of office. There is enough deeds to put this White House and this Administration under question. Clearly a long bucket list of foreign affairs and donations, sudden strikes of corporate deals done and to top-it off, the pay-to-play acts done by Trumps. Surely shows that the Tea-Pot Dome Scandal was only a fluke, but a daily occurrence in this government.
That is why the Congress, the House of Representatives should start an Impeachment Inquiry, where they will put the President under subpoena and by a grand jury to investigate the possible misdeeds of the President, as the Congress can do.
A CRS Report of 2005 states this: “The focus of the impeachment inquiry is to determine whether the person involved has engaged in treason, bribery, or other high crimes and misdemeanors. If the House Committee on the Judiciary, by majority vote, determines that grounds for impeachment exist, a resolution impeaching the individual in question and setting forth specific allegations of misconduct, in one or more articles of impeachment, will be reported to the full House” (CRS Report for Congress – ‘An Overview of the Impeachment Process’ 20.04.2005).
This is clear on the memo. As the Congress and House Committee of the Judiciary and the House Representatives can start an inquiry and start an investigation into the President. To see if there is evidence of treason, bribery, or other high crimes and misdemeanors. Just like in the past when they checked the blow-jobs of Clinton. In today’s world, the House of Representatives has to see if they can find clear evidence and in the collected reports of Special Counsel Robert Mueller; if there is anything that is criminal. This can be done by them. As there been plenty on the Trump Team and Campaign staff, which have been implicated in the probe and even sentenced ever since. This is why, with the knowledge of this and the secrecy, not only the release of all the volumes of the report. Plus the trying to deflect it all and overshadow the evidence collected. There is surely more to shed a light on, an underworld the President doesn’t want the public to know. Just like his hidden tax-returns, which is more secret than the golden showers in Moscow.
Alas, there is a need to start the proceedings, that is if a blow-job in the oval office is more critical to the state, than foreign interference from the Kremlin. Peace.
