    Today, Trump's acting chief of staff gave state's evidence in the impeachment inquiry.

    Acting White House Chief of Staff Mick Mulvaney defiantly admitted today that the President held up military aid to Ukraine in order to pressure the country’s president into investigating an unproven conspiracy theory about Democratic corruption during the 2016 Presidential election. In that very same phone conversation, Trump asked the Ukrainian President to do him a favor, investigate the Bidens, more than likely, the real purpose of the call.

    “Did [Trump] also mention to me in passing the corruption related to the DNC server? Absolutely—no question about that. That’s it, and that’s why we held up the money,” Mulvaney told reporters today.

    In Trump's world, Mulvaney added, “I have news for everybody: get over it,” Mulvaney said, in response to ABC’s Jon Karl, who noted that what Mulvaney had just described was exactly the sort of “quid pro quo” arrangement that Trump has repeatedly denied. “There is going to be political influence in foreign policy," Mulvaney said.

    This may get Mulvaney fired. That's easy because there is an "acting" in front of his title. Trump prefers "acting" advisors because they are easier to fire than advisors approved by the Senate.

    Speaking of which, Rick Perry quit today as Energy secretary, joining a very long list of former White House staffers. Fact is, the list is historic, longer than any other President in our history. Perry found himself at the center of the Ukraine scandal engulfing the Presidency after he became one of the top liaisons between Trump and his new Ukrainian counterpart.

    Perry revealed in an interview published yesterday that he was directed by Trump to approach Rudy Giuliani to address the President's concerns about corruption in Ukraine. Giuliani is Trump's personal lawyer, and he does not work for the government, nor does he have a security clearance.

    By the end of the day Mulvaney was denying what he had committed to on video tape claiming he never said it.Dirty Donalds disciples follow his lead perfectly.

    What does the 2016 election have to do with a current political opponent?

    You are behind the times. Sondland testified he gave the no quid pro quo reply at the direction of President Sharpie.

    You have to wonder. The democrats have this slam dunk case. And yet they jeopardize it by not having a formal vote to investigate. The whole thing will likely be thrown out without it.

    CNN: Trump’s Legal Team ‘Baffled,’ DOJ Officials ‘Angered and Confused’ by Mulvaney’s Wild Press Conference
    https://www.mediaite.com/tv/cnn-tru...-confused-by-mulvaneys-wild-press-conference/

    Brooke Baldwin reported that sources told CNN Trump’s legal advisers were “baffled” by Mulvaney confirming there was a quid pro quo with Ukraine to get the country to investigate the Democratic National Committee for Trump.

    “Sources are telling CNN that Trump’s legal team is, quote, baffled,” Baldwin said.
    ................................................................................................................................
    Later, those same legal advisers were quoted as saying, "Mick who?"

    Wrong. We can not know that of which there is no evidence. Assumption on your is not proof of wrong doing on Trump's part.

    That is Sondland's testimony. You want to believe some things and not others with respect to Gordo depending on how they make President Sharpie look.

    It’s in the nations interest to root out crime, corruption in countries we are sending aid, and make sure foreign countries aren’t interfering in our elections. The fact the dnc is involved, and Biden’s son might be, isn’t relevant. You all sent above the law

    Using extortion to get Ukraine to go on a batshyte crazy, wild goose chase for Don's personal political gain isn't just a gross misuse of power, it's illegal.

    Glad nobody did that then.

    It’s also illegal to withhold a billion dollars until they fire someone imvestigating your 50k/month piggy bank.

    My, my, my. Is a sense of humor dead in America? Common people, the Mulvaney press conference is on a par with Rudy's where he said he looked into Biden with Ukraine. The interview expressed surprise that Rudy would admit to that. Rudy replied: "I never said that!" The interviewer, "You just said you did!" Rudy beat Mulvaney's sudden reversal by mere seconds.

    This stuff is a riot. It's nuts. It's crazy. It's unbelievable and it's on tape. And they all will deny they ever said what they said. And, Trumpets will echo it. Common people. :roflol:

    I have to hand it to man, to come here everyday with copied propaganda and then having them beat down like a clay road takes some serious thick skin or a rewarding agenda!
