There was just a matter of time, as the House of Representatives and the majority Committees would collectively go together and make a resolution to vote over the Impeachment of President Donald J. Trump. This after his own actions in office, as the Head of State and the Executive of State.
He is trying to deflect the facts and call it names, but reality is this. The President tried together with all of his handlers to get dirt and shade his political opponent Joe Biden, by making a fraudulent agreement with Ukrainian counterparts and if it didn’t get followed the military aid didn’t come their way.
The Articles against the President is very simple, but straight to the fact. That the President did misuse power or abuse it. He tried to get a foreign power to interfere in the elections of 2020. To investigate the son of Biden. That is what the President did. That is abuse of power and misuse of power in office, using the aid of the state to get a favourable case abroad.
The Second article is the obstruction of Congress. Which at this point is fact. As his administration haven’t answered any of the subpoenas nor calls to testify of people associated with President. Even the ones who been fired has not testified. Family members of the President has also declined to answer the subpoenas and answer the committees.
That has been done by withholding documents or production of it. Defying all subpoenas and refused to produce a single document or record. Directing the Executive Branch not to cooperate nor defying to testify. There are nine persons who have not cooperated from the Executive Branch alone.
While the President has decided that he should decide the scope, the levels of inquire and ability to investigate him. That he has the “executive privilege” and the “sole Power of Impeachment”. With the stopping of documents, lack of cooperation is all a proof the obstruction of justice. As the Congress couldn’t prevail or even manage to get everything. Since, the Executive Branch has been so reluctant to do their duty.
Trump has clearly not followed the memo or should we at this point call his Constitutional rights as a citizen and as a President. He has done whatever he can shelve and stop the Congress from questioning him and his team. While having yes men, whose also involved in the shady business of the President, the likes of Devin Nunes. Who just have an ability to be with the characters of the Executive Branch and ilk who deter to breach the law. That is why the President needs to be tried and answer for his action.
There are several around Rudy Giuliani the attorney of the President whose entangled and in trouble over the same Ukraine Scandal. Which is showing the remorse and the reality on the ground. As the White House is spreading all sort of fiction to pass. Hoping all these conspiracy theories will stick.
While this will most likely pass in the House of Representatives, it will be blocked and silenced in the Senate. As the Republicans cannot go against their master, the likes of Lindsay Graham is unbound in his loyalty to the kingpin on top. His whole fate and life depends on the Donald. That is how it seems.
We will see if the crook will win or not. The House have done their part. They have been able, even in the hardest of hurdles to make a report. To prove what Trump in regards to Ukraine. Now it is just a matter of time. What results it will give and how it will sway the public opinion.
The articles are well-crafted, just like the majority report shows the intent and the essence of the whole ordeal. It is just is if the Senate will betray the Constitution or if they will stab Donald in the back. Which I doubt, because at this point. None of the GOP or Republican Senators seems interested in walking over trouble waters without kissing the ring of Trump. Peace.
We have had the President National Security Advisor General Michael Flynn. The Second one was the Presidents Counsel and Lawyer Michael Cohen. His Campaign Manager for a time being, Paul Manafort is also charged and behind bars. Today, another long time associate of the President Roger Stone was charged for lying as a witness and not cooperating with the authorities with subpoenaed documents to the Mueller Investigation. Therefore, his now awaiting sentencing, as the federal jury found him guilty.
Together with the other ones whose already plead guilty like Richard Gates, Alexander Van Der Zwaan, George Papadopolous and Richard Pinedo.
The ones whose already sentenced are Cohen, Van Der Zwaan, Papadopolous, Pinedo and Paul Manafort. Manafort is the only one behind bars and convicted.
This shows the legal ramifications of things and the amount of people around the President. His team of apparently crooks. There is no denying in that. When you have so many people around you, whose indicted, later charged, found guilty and awaiting sentencing. Finally getting convicted for their crimes. Shows to what extent the people around the President have no quarrels doing the illegal bidding for the President.
That what bothers me, how many of his men has to fall before it matters. Before people understand that Trump brought the New York Gang. He brought the gangsters and the ones who doesn’t care about the law. The ones who has no trouble breaching the statutes, the limitations of the law for a personal gain or a favour. That’s why his willing to do anything to get a upper hand. This who Trump is and what he stands for. Firstly, his own inflated ego, but also that his supposed to get a cut of everything he touches.
Therefore, the men around has sacrificed their careers and their lives, they have done the final bidding for him and they will be felons. They are no criminals, whose breached the laws in various ways and the juries found it out. They got evidence and the now the last one for now was Stone. But there are more associates to come, as his new lawyer Rudy Giuliani is ensuring that his Ukrainian associates are behind bars too. They will all answer for their crimes, in do time.
It is like, no matter where you look. You’ll find someone corrupted, misusing their office or extending their hand into the cookie jar. Just like other appointed leaders within the Trump administration and so-on.
Roger Stone lied about his connection and talks with Wikileaks. Stone is now awaiting sentencing and conviction. That shows what sort of friend the President has. His yet another one and shows the systematic arrangements made by the Trump Campaign and the Trump Transition Team. They were all indicted and have to answer for the crimes they committed.
Certainly, the GOP will not say this, but it is a pattern. When so many people involved is in legal jeopardy, when so many are facing time. It is no denying that the head of this will also sooner or later answer for his association. Not only his enforcers and his capo’s. Even his consigliere is facing time too. Therefore, we know something is up.
Trump cannot hide from the fact, that his associates, his people have been caught. It just a matter of time before he will face it too. Peace.
This is not the first time the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea or the North Korea fires some salvoes the way of the United States of America Administration. Especially the Trump Administration and their diplomats.
Just last year, the DPRK said this about the US: “The U.S. is fatally mistaken if it went to the extent of regarding that the DPRK would be compelled to accept, out of its patience, the demands reflecting its gangster-like mindset. A shorter way to denuclearization on the Korean peninsula is to remove deep-rooted mistrust and build up trust between the DPRK and the U.S” (KCNA: Foreign Ministry Spokesman on DPRK-U.S. High-level Talks, 07.07.2018).
So the North Koreans are tired of the gangsters in Washington DC. It is again another salvo from Pyongyang, This is not new, but this shows that the diplomatic relations are strained. What is happening is not reassuring. As the meetings, the supposed grand-deal or anything else haven’t changed anything. Only paid Kim Jong-Un for a few international trips and hotel service on the outside of North Korea.
“The DPRK-U.S. relations that could have been derailed and fallen apart several times due to such hostile acts and wrong habitual practices on the part of the U.S. are still maintained. It goes to the credit of the close personal relations between Chairman of the State Affairs Commission Kim Jong Un and President Trump. But there is a limit to everything. The close personal relations can never be kept aloof from the public mindset and they are never a guarantee for preventing the DPRK-U.S. relations from getting aggravated or for making up for. The U.S. trumpets the crucial measures taken by the DPRK for confidence-building as its own “diplomatic gains” but no substantial progress has been made in the DPRK-U.S. relations and belligerent relations still persists that there can be the exchange of fire any moment. The U.S. is seriously mistaken if it is of the idea of passing off in peace the end of this year, by exploiting the close personal relations between its president and the Chairman of the State Affairs Commission of the DPRK for the delaying tactics” (Kim Yong Chol – ‘Korea Asia-Pacific Peace Committee, (KAPPC) made public a statement on Oct. 27’, 27.10.2019).
If the Trump Administration want to be serious. There need to be more love-letters and maybe not the tough-guy letter to Erdogan. That is a bad look and not showing class. Neither the tact between two parties. There is time for Washington to get in the ones whose not gangsters and whose diplomats to actually act diplomatic. That is if they are serious about making the Korean Peninsula a peaceful and non-nuclear.
However, the non-action and the threats are not the thing to sustain this one. The fragile relationship seems like it needs some reassuring messages. Needs some love and care, just like flowers needs water and sun to stay alive. This is why the Trump Administration needs to do something. That is if they they care about their allies in South Korea and Japan. Since, they all need a peaceful DPRK. They don’t need missiles hitting vessels in South Korea or closer to Japan. That is not helping anyone.
Except getting the DPRK again in the headlines, just like missile testing and showing the brilliance of the industrial actions of the weapons program. Instead of finding a middle ground and some sort of arrangement that the DPRK and the US combined seems to win with. That is not happening right now. Just more hawkish activity or non-action. Both not making anything positive.
This got to change. That is if the US administration or the DPRK want this to work. Peace.
Well, there are certain fellows who are hiding things, as they are not willing to testify and stand-up in front of the Grand Jury investigation in the Russian Probe, which was producing the Mueller Report. Surely, if all parties, the ones who plead guilty and sort out deals, and the ones on the sideline had followed the subpoenas, than the produced report to Congress would have looked different.
By what was released today by the Department of Justice. Is revealing. It is again showing the conspiracy of this administration to keep secrets and lack transparency. As Don McGahn didn’t testify, neither did the first son of the clan, Donald Trump Junior. The one who had the famous meeting in the Trump Tower and has never told a straight story since. Except lying and nepotism as the one of the family members close to the President.
Therefore, what is really evident. Was that Special Counsel wasn’t able to fulfil his mission, because the Department of Justice didn’t let or the associates of Trump wasn’t complying. Just like the President wasn’t either. Just like we see with the Congress investigating into the acts of the President. The state, all agencies are blocking the release of documents in-connection with the Trump-Ukraine scandal. The same was surely happening with the Trump-Russia Probe too.
Therefore, today’s revelation isn’t shocking. But more a pattern of the New York Gang and their state operations. That they will keep their friends close, but their enemies even closer.
We can surely see why, because we know that Jr. cannot hold his tongue just like his father. He will lie and forget the previous ones. That is why, he cannot testify, because sooner or later he corner himself in, if not he reveals shady dealings by close associates and he cannot do that.
Don McGahn was just showing loyalty. Which was subpoenaed, the former White House Counsel has done the bidding of his previous boss. But this puts into question what he knows and what he did in regards to the matter. This disgraces his name and questions if he cares about the law.
What we do know is that they will tarnish this report. That they didn’t testify. But if someone did hurt the Trump Organization or Trump Campaign. They would burn them and seal their fate for life. But since its them, then the law doesn’t matter. That is what the world has learned from this administration. The law doesn’t matter to them, but matters to everyone else. Others has to answer to subpoenas, but these people are above that. Peace.
We know already by the various reports dropped post United States Elections 2016. Plus the Mueller Report and others have verified over the years how the Russians used Social Media and how they weaponized it, as an advantage for the President. This was all an advantage for President Trump and his closest associates, whatever the Russians did and what disinformation, what sort of peddling of fake-news and so on.
Which in the Social Media report from the U.S. Senate Intelligence released today. Has some quotes worth mentioning still. It is just a little more flesh on the bone. But still not the whole chicken. They are not releasing everything and some things are still seen as secret. They are still redacted and therefore, some information are kept secret.
However, what is said is saying a little and shows a pattern, that is known already.
“The Committee found that the Russian government tasked and supported the IRA’ s interference in the 2016 U.S. election. This finding is consistent with the Committee’s understanding of the relationship between IRA owner Yevgeniy Prigozhin and the Kremlin, the aim and scope of the interference by the IRA, and the correlation between the IRA’s actions and electoral interference by the Russian government in other contexts and by other means. Despite Moscow’s denials, the direction and financial involvement of Russian oligarch Yevgeniy Prigozhin, as well as his close ties to high-level Russian government officials including President Vladimir Putin, point to significant Kremlin support, authorization, and direction of the IRA’ s operations and goals”.
“The IRA built a wide-ranging information operation designed to complement these other Russian influence activities directed toward interfering with and undermining U.S. democracy in 2016. The expanse and depth of this effort would only be understood in the aftermath of that campaign”
“At the direction of the Kremlin, the IRA sought to influence the 2016 U.S. presidential election by harming Hillary Clinton’s chances of success and supporting Donald. Trump”
“Evidence of an overarching pro-Trump and anti-Clinton bias leading up to Election Day 2016 is also found in information obtained by Special Counsel’s Office. For instance, IRA employees were directed to focus on U.S. politics and to “use any opportunity to criticize Hillary and the rest (except Sanders and Trump-we support”them)”.
These three quotes from the report was the vital ones from me. They say what their mission was, why did what they did and how. It is a deliberate act of the IRA on directions and orders from Kremlin to do this, to favour Trump and his candidacy. Nothing else can be taken from this. That is what the Russians did in 2016. They used social media and various of media techniques to spread their message. This can only been seen as an direct interference in favour of one candidate.
To think otherwise is naive and Kremlin won with their strategy and got their man in office. Certainly, the world see that and has seen that with the results afterwards. As the President is very Moscow friendly. That has been seen with time.
What is clear that they dropped this now, while the impeachment process is under way. Certainly, to deflect from the Trump-Ukraine scandal. Peace.
