NBC: Trump Asked Ukraine Pres Not Once, Not Twice, Eight Times!

“Trump speaks in code …” Michael Cohen Lest anyone worry that Trump mostly “inferred” via code, that he would hold up the $250 million in aid unless Ukraine investigated Hunter Biden, thus making “proof” difficult, we now hear via MSNBC and the Wall Street Journal that Trump brought up the need to investigate the Biden family eight times during a single phone call: Trump urged Ukraine president eight times during call to investigate Joe Biden's son, report says https://t.co/LKmgpLvYP3 — Muckmaker™ (@RealMuckmaker) September 20, 2019 That isn’t so much “code” as it is a kidnapper screaming into a telephone. There is another “proof” consideration here, right Chris Hayes? “Eight times” seems oddly specific. You’d have to a transcript or detailed notes of the call to be able to same confidently. Right? — Chris Hayes (@chrislhayes) September 20, 2019 The reason “proof” matters, a lot, is we recall the Mueller investigation declining to prosecute Russian collusion because Mueller had difficulty proving corrupt intent. But, now, we have Trump bringing up – eight times –  prosecuting/investigating the son of his political enemy, with a $250 million dollar gun to the Ukraine’s head. The transcripts would lay out a quid pro quo so clear, so compelling, that it dispels the need prove Trump’s state of mind, his corrupt intent. It’s right there on paper, eight times. Moreover, we know this without even seeing the transcripts, the two agendas are so tightly intertwined. The exact wording is almost irrelevant at this point. Donald Trump solicitated a bribe. He was conspiring with a foreign leader to prosecute – wrongly – an American who just happens to be the son of Trump’s strongest political rival. If this doesn’t result in impeachment and/or prosecution at the end of Trump’s presidency, nothing ever will. This is not “This Weeks Scandal.” This is on another level. **** Peace, y’all Jason jmiciak@yahoo.com, and on Twitter @MiciakZoom

OK, the joke’s over. The comparisons aren’t funny anymore.

We have become what we most despise   Old Saying It started early. And like most things these days, it started in the media, but this time it caught fire with the general public. It began as the instances of the most kinds of tawdry and banal corruption and self aggrandizement started popping up in the Trump administration. And before you know it, using Trump’s antics to jokingly say that he was turning the United States into a banana republic was damn near the new national drinking game. But how funny is it now? Remember how visitors into whatever old YMCA summer camp a tin pot dictator used as a presidential palace was greeted with a painting of the president in every room? Well, apparently every starving artist in New York learned early to paint the biggest, gaudiest portrait of Trump they could create, so he’d but it to hang in one of his schlock resorts, likely using Trump charity funds. Remember how we all recoiled in horror as third world dictators used national troops to chase indigenous people back into the wilderness, likely to die in the elements? And that differs from Trump wanting to use his ICE thugs to literally pull critically ill children off of life saving treatments to deport them, how? Remember being bemused at how North Korean’s would literally applaud themselves to exhaustion, rather than be pulled form the crown and disappeared for not being appreciative enough of Dear Leader? And now, Trump starts every cabinet meeting going around the table while each department head tries to outdo each other in slavishly kissing Trump’s ass. Ah, the good old days, when petty tyrants used to take foreign aid from other governments, meant to help the people, and use it for a gold plated swimming pool at the presidential palace, or a new, bulletproof Mercedes limo. How about Trump literally stealing money earmarked by congress for new schools and barracks on military bases, to build a vanity wall on the southern border, just to fulfill a promise that even his own supporters knew was bullshit, and that Mexico isn’t paying for? How about dumpy despots regularly holding mandatory attendance “rallies,” stuffed with hour plus speeches, just to reassure the despot that he was still the beloved “man of the people?” Sound anything like the thinly veiled “Thank You America” campaign rallies that Trump started holding 3 1/2 years before the next general election?  And continued nonstop as “policy speeches,” so that taxpayers foot the bill instead of the Trump reelection campaign. Remember how disgusting it was when petty tyrants jailed reporters, and imprisoned whistle blowers who dared to expose the corruption of the regime? And now Trump wants to jail reporters and shutter news outlets for reporting on him, and a courageous whistle blower is facing possible criminal prosecution if his message actually reaches the intended ears in congress. And bow, the cherry on the sundae. If the reporting is true, Trump pulled the simplest kind of street corner corruption, shit we haven’t used in Chicago since the 70’s, because people kept getting caught. He pulled a good, old fashioned shakedown racket. I can almost imagine the contents of that call to the newly elected president of the Ukraine, “I promise you this pal, you’re not getting a […]

If the Ukraine Charge Is True, Republicans Must Call for Trump to Step Down...

The rumors – almost established as fact by Rudy Giuliani – regarding Trump are more serious than even I had contemplated. They are more direct, they are head-spinning, they are cheap, sleazy, they endanger Ukrainian lives, and the Biden family’s future. For those who have been on the moon, or on the road, as I was much of yesterday, the allegation is that Trump told the president of Ukraine to restart baseless-investigations of Joe Biden’s son, or Trump would withhold $250 million of military aid that Ukraine desperately needs to fight Russians in its outer territories. Put another way, Trump requested that Ukraine collude/conspire with him, to meddle in the 2020 election, and this time Trump used our money as the bait. If Ukraine refused, Trump’s deal benefited Putin. Period. We spent $40 million to investigate Trump’s possible collusion with Russia in the 2016 election. It is important to recall that Mueller specifically stated that they could not find sufficient evidence to establish collusion, in part due to the lies and use of encrypted phones/computers, which stymied the investigation. Here, we have a whistleblower who was in the White House, and we have Rudy basically verify it on TV, all while it is happening in real time. It would appear that colluding to win one election in 2016 worked so well that Trump determined he would do it again. These charges are not the type for which any privilege could possibly apply. Privileges do not apply in the furtherance of a crime. Moreover, even if the transcripts and actions could conceivably be suppressed under a claim of privilege, enough is out now (thanks, Rudy!) that the Congress must demand release of the complaint. Every member of Congress must now stand-up together. Should it be true, Trump must step down, immediately. Moreover, William Barr and Joseph Maguire need to resign, also, for suppressing the report from Congress. If a president can openly, brazenly, and without remorse, bribe another country using our tax money, all in order to defeat political rivals, then we’re beyond any quaint notions of “edging toward a dictatorship” and declare ourselves to be in the front of the line. Our system of government, the very system itself, hasn’t been challenged like this since .. I honestly don’t know.  Watch Republicans over the next week. We know that if the allegations prove true, Democrats will be calling for Trump’s impeachment. Watch Republicans closely, this is the ultimate test, party over country, or country over party. Do not bother watching Trump’s hardcore supporters. I recall a clip of video that I saw a couple years ago, an evangelical leader had been asked what he would do if Jesus got down off the cross to tell him that Trump colluded with Russia. He said; “I would say; ‘Stay right here, I have to check with the president.'” Trump’s loyal supporters will blame “the deep state.” Republican lawmakers know better. They know damn well what is at stake. Right versus wrong. Openness or suppression. Lawful or criminal, country or party, it is that simple. If it is the latter, it is over for this great democratic experiment. **** Peace, y’all Jason jmiciak@yahoo.com, and Follow on Twitter: @MiciakZoom.com
