Sondland: Yes There Was Quid Quo Pro

Gordon Sondland Says Trump Directed Ukraine Quid Pro Quo

NOV 21, 2019

U.S. Ambassador Gordon Sondland told the House impeachment inquiry Wednesday that President Trump directly pressured the Ukrainian government to announce an investigation into Joe Biden and his son Hunter — and that other senior administration officials were “in the loop.” During explosive testimony on the fifth day of public impeachment hearings, Ambassador Sondland said Vice President Mike Pence and Secretary of State Mike Pompeo were part of the effort to force Ukraine into helping Trump’s re-election bid. Sondland testified the officials knew that President Trump conditioned the release of nearly $400 million in U.S. military aid and an Oval Office meeting with the Ukrainian president on a statement about the Bidens.

Gordon Sondland: “I know that members of this committee frequently frame these complicated issues in the form of a simple question: Was there a quid pro quo? As I testified previously, with regard to the requested White House call and the White House meeting, the answer is yes.”


“Was there a ‘quid pro quo?’” Sondland asked. “With regard to the requested White House call and White House meeting, the answer is yes.”

The rest, he said, was obvious: “Two plus two equals four.”
The difference between patriotism and nationalism is that the patriot is proud of his country for what it does, and the nationalist is proud of his country no matter what it does; the first attitude creates a feeling of responsibility, but the second a feeling of blind arrogance that leads to war.

Seriously, who do you trust? A man that thought not getting gonorrhea was his equivalent to serving in Vietnam? A man that could never get a security clearance, a man that has settled multimillion-dollar fraud convictions that lies every single day? Or a man that has honorably served a lifetime in military service? Just who do you think we should trust?

Why do we train the enemy to use our military equipment?!

Military grounds Saudis

The Pentagon announced on Tuesday it was halting operational training of all Saudi Arabian military personnel in the United States until further notice after a Saudi Air Force lieutenant shot and killed three people last week at a base in Florida.

The decision will have far-reaching impacts on visiting Saudi personnel, including grounding more than 300 Saudi Arabian military aviation students as part of a "safety stand-down," first reported by Reuters earlier on Tuesday.

Is it possible to have a fair and legitimate hearing when the jury foreman has clearly stated that he has no intention of being impartial? Moscow Mitch seems to be acting as if Trump is a dictator as if he has the right to set the terms of his own trial... in what corner of the world is the defendant, the accused person in a trial allowed to coordinate with their jury?!

Holocaust Expert Compares... Fox News To Hitler’s Ministry Of Propaganda

A free press is a pillar of democracy and a guard against authoritarianism. While Hitler used a new Ministry of People’s Enlightenment and Propaganda headed by Joseph Goebbels to undermine liberal democracy, President Donald Trump seems to be using Fox News.

Historian Christopher R. Browning drew such parallels late last year in a piece for New York Review of Books called "The Suffocation of Democracy."

Fox consistently confirms Trump’s own version of events. Trump then uses Fox News reports in his tweets and other statements to reaffirm his own story.

The reports on Fox News are practically unrecognizable to watchers of CNN or MSNBC. The free media has effectively allowed Trump to lie to any viewer of Fox News with no repercussions.

Regardless of how his presidency ends, Trump’s shadow will loom over American politics for generations.

While I do believe seven of these people, believing one of them is dubious... but hey, seven out of eight is pretty convincing.

Trump's DOJ Quietly Ends
two-year fishing expedition on the Clintons — and admits it found nothing

By Matthew Chapman

On Thursday, the Washington Post reported that the Department of Justice is quietly winding down a two-year probe into the Clintons, and admitting that “nothing of consequence” was found to suggest they had committed any sort of criminal offense.

The probe, conducted by U.S. Attorney John Huber, began as an attempt by former Attorney General Jeff Sessions to satisfy Republicans who had been clamoring for President Donald Trump to fulfill one of his campaign slogans and “lock her up.”

Huber focused in particular on the debunked right-wing conspiracy theory that Hillary Clinton traded approval of the sale of a Canadian uranium company operating in the United States to the Russian government, in return for contributions from its board to her family’s charitable foundation.

In reality, Clinton did not have unilateral veto power over the sale, and the donor to the Clinton Foundation had sold his stake in Uranium One long before the deal. But Republicans still did everything they could to turn Uranium One into shorthand for the Clintons’ supposed corruption.
