So how did a political fail-son, known to buy crack shirtless, get his arse on a Ukranian energy company board of directors?


**cautiously raises hand**

I think I know...Biden used his political clout to set the boy up! Probably using the same defensive aid money that Trump was bargaining with.

Sandcastle meet P!ss storm.

Sanders. I don’t identify with the PMC. They’ve run the Democratic Party in the dirt.

Huh? Sorry Rick but I don't think we get to choose who the R candidate is going to be. Auntie Lizzy will have to run against whoever they put up. It might be Trump, and she will beat him like a drum if it is.

I'd even bet Bernie could beat him under the right circumstances.
We still have over a year to go, so my own personal choices may change again and again, given the expected and perennial candidate shakeouts that are going to happen.

Thing is, I am ever mindful of the fact that we're also voting for House and Senate. If we take the Senate and keep the House, and Trump wins, politics is going to look markedly different on January 21, 2021, especially if Mr. Trump wins reelection.

  • Trump asks for a "favor."
  • Trump asks a foreign government to investigate a political opponent based upon a rumor that Trump heard.
  • Trump reminds that foreign government that the US has done more for the foreign government than Germany has.
...all the while Trump knows he's polling -14 points less then Biden on the day of this conversation and was "exonerated" the day before by Robert Mueller's testimony before Congress.

Hmm

Also, Trump initially said that this was a discussion about trying to root out corruption in Ukraine, trying to ensure that the money was going to the right places, et cetera. There’s nothing about that in this transcript.

The "transcript". Otherwise known as a smoking gun. In this case, one that is set to "cook off". The only parallel to a bbq cook-off being the smell of seared meat.

It's no transcript, more of notes of a phone call. The Whistle Blower report needs to be released in its entirety. Trump is releasing it redacted.

Also, Bill Barr needs to recuse himself of all things Ukraine since he's mentioned in the phone call.

Of course he is. You expected a transcript of a recorded phone call?

This is Donald Trump. You'll get what he sends over and nothing else.

Try not to get too excited over this, Rick, it's just another chance to own the libs.

And own us they will. Trump's chance at re-election just took a big jump and my prediction of a Democratic bloodbath in 2020 has ended.
