    The political discourse in Yankistan has been so perverted by Mullah Trump that this sort of codswallop (above) is 'normal'.
    But, they lose sight of the fact that ordinary people see through this bluffing and are not impressed.
    This is becoming part of the disdain that is fueling the catastrophic plunge in the Mad Mullahs poll figures.
    Pence is now more popular than Trump FFS.

      Bolton gone
      When the hawkish Bolton gets shafted you really wonder what Trump has up his sleeve

        He will never go hungry with the royalties from When a Man loves a Woman. He'd one or two other hits but that was his meal ticket.

          If the whistle blower story is what is being strongly hinted at then Trump will not survive it. The GOP will try and deflect and desperately cover up but the story will come out. There is no way the GOP will be able to stand over bribing a foreign President for political gain (a crime) and in effect - treason.

                This one feels a bit bigger than previous tom****ery

                The connection between Manafort, Ukraine, Trump leading into this scandal would be delicious. You'd think they'd go elsewhere to do their political hit jobs than the place that ended up putting Manafort in jail

                  You're not wrong....

                  WASHINGTON – Former Massachusetts Governor and Republican presidential candidate Bill Weld slammed President Donald Trump's contacts with the government of Ukraine in a television interview on Monday morning, calling Trump's actions "treason."

                  "Talk about pressuring a foreign country to interfere with and control a U.S. election. That's not just undermining democratic institutions. That is treason. It's treason pure and simple, and the penalty for treason under the U.S. code is death. That’s the only penalty," Weld said, speaking on MSNBC's "Morning Joe.

                    Listened to a slate podcast on this earlier, they felt this is a 2for

                    1) withholding state aid from Ukraine as a means to exert pressure

                    2) using that as a means to threaten or bully them into doing the dirty work on Biden

                    The reporter chuckled as he said trump can deny all he likes and try to bury the transcript, the Ukrainians have the same transcript in Ukrainianese :)

                      They've gone from denying everything to........ 'there was no quid pro quo' and............the president can discuss anything and it's necessary that those conversations are private.
                      A lot depends on what is happening within the Republican party, much of the news/spin is smoke.
                      The key element of the whistle blower concern was 'promises made' by Trump. There was quid pro quo.
                      Common sense says (1) The Dems have gold here and they won't let go until the whistle blower is heard (2) These things always get out.
                      Watergate was a series of blanket denials and claims of privilege that bit by bit unraveled.
                      Hard to see how he can survive if he offered aid for dirt on Biden. Would be suicide for Republicans in 2020. Forget the the fairy world Trump groupies. They won't save him.

                        I hope its sayonara for trump but remember during the election campaign he somehow survived the recording of him talking about sexually assaulting women.

                          Thing is Nixon was never impeached, he resigned when he saw the writing on the wall, problem is Trump can’t read, even if he’s pushed it would have to be by Pence and House Reps, can you see them doing that with only a year to go to elections?

                              no way Trump is going to walk.....he walks and his next walk will be the perp walk. Basically he has given the Dems no choice but to push impeachment. Pelosi did not want to go there as the politics are such that he could use the process to garner support. It wont hurt him with his existing base and conceivably could boost his turnout numbers. But if she held back after this she would lose Dem support for the Presidency.

                                Great craic this so far, momentum seems to be shifting perhaps?

                                5 or 6 committees on his ass now, a second whistleblower around his taxes and above all else, the simplicity of the story around him bribing the President of Ukraine to find dirt on his opponent or they dont get money from Murica.

                                It wont get him booted out of office, but it will hopefully break the dam and let all the ****e flow in all directions. Theres too many battlefronts for him to control, perhaps too many crimes liable to be exposed. His base are addicted to him, but the Obama to Trump voters might be a very different story all together.
