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.
“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.
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.
