    Hahaha! Of course. After Trump released the transcript of the phone call their phony narrative is on life support. Time to make up more lies.

    Documents? He already has the transcript of the call that started this. Now he has "documents"?

    oh my!

    I think we've seen enough democrat drafted documents to last a lifetime.

    So at this point all we can and should do is wait and see what the IG presents. That is what an open minded, honest and intelligent person does.

    If that's the case the Democrat leadership and the MSN need not attend.

    It's interesting watching folks squirm over this. The Russia probe was always a non-starter as far as proving collusion, but this one has teeth, and he and his supporters know it. It's another reason you don't see folks defending Trump, you see them attacking his critics. In politics, when you can't defend, you attack to try and move the center of attention.

    If you can't defend your delusions, deny, deflect or detract.

    He survived the Obama Republican purge. He may be an honest broker, though few are.

    This will be interesting. Some here have said Trump's call was the State Department's business but forget that Trump has broad authority since the State Department works for him. The head of the State Department was on the phone call.

    Secretary of State Mike Pompeo confirms he was on the Trump-Ukraine call at the center of the impeachment probe
    https://www.cnbc.com/2019/10/02/pom...aine-call-at-center-of-impeachment-probe.html

    The first question that comes to mind is whether Pompeo played a role in the decision to try to hide the transcript in the highly secret server? Cuz he clearly knew how damaging it would be if the transcript was made public..........and probably knew Trump had broken the law.

    A question one might ask is whether it's possible to operate in the Clinton - Obama orbits for years without being corrupted.

    Aside from the Dossier, the real collusion was between Clinton and Obama and Ukraine. The US Ambassador to Ukraine was right in the middle of the corruption. We'll see how this plays out.

    Likely a document drop, highlighting all the collusion between the Obama Admin, Clinton team, and the Ukraine during the 2016 election. Not gonna be a great day to be Adam Shifty and company...no parody needed

    We haven’t even got to the Plane load of cash to Iran. Think there wasn’t corruption, graft, and kickbacks in there somewhere?

    Dead issue. Iran insisted on cash repayment of their seized assets. It was part of the seven nation deal,

    Pompeo Pushed Out His Own Ukraine Rep to Squash a Growing Scandal
    https://www.thedailybeast.com/mike-...tative-kurt-volker-to-quiet-a-growing-scandal

    When President Donald Trump’s personal attorney Rudy Giuliani appeared on cable news programs last week, he deflected questions about his work in Ukraine and instead hammered home one talking point over and over again: The State Department knew he was trying to dig up dirt on 2020 presidential candidate Joe Biden and his son Hunter.

    Giuliani waved his phone on air, flashing text messages between himself and State Department representatives and saying it was the department that connected him to a close adviser to Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky. Giuliani’s on-air appearances threw the department into a tizzy, forcing Secretary of State Mike Pompeo to try to put a lid on the crisis of confidence bubbling up under him, according to three senior U.S. officials.

    The package of material turned over to the various committees seems to be comprised of numerous documents bearing Trump Hotel logos containing various and sundry conspiracy theories related to the Ukraine.This package of material was sent to Mike Pompeo several months ago,and was passed along to the IG by a state department attorney.The congressman from Md. who passed this information to the media didn't really know why it was given urgent status.He stressed that all of the interpretations he was giving to the media were his and his alone based on what he had learned at the meeting.
