Trump Shocked It’s Ukraine “Thing” that Lead to Impeachment

A really shocking admission tonight from a source inside the White House. Apparently Trump is bewildered that it was the Ukraine matter that led to his impeachment. this is an amazingly damning admission! https://t.co/kXqDPLLbLo — Chris Hayes (@chrislhayes) December 12, 2019 this is an amazingly damning admission! https://t.co/kXqDPLLbLo — Chris Hayes (@chrislhayes) December 12, 2019 Wait, what? “It’s the Ukraine thing that’s done it”? What the fffffff, what the hell does that mean!! Why don’t we strip ourselves of all political analysis and all the stuff we know about Trump and the facts and that. Let’s just apply normal adult understanding of such a statement. Trump is “bewildered.” Which, all of us would agree means stunned, not comprehending it. “That it was Ukraine that led to his impeachment.” Well, damn, that sounds like someone who may well have considered impeachment possible, maybe anticipated, at some point. “Frankly” – the person’s being honest here, and perhaps a little embarrassed. “He’s a little surprised it was the Ukraine thing that has done it.” That’s the killer quote here. It practically screams: “If you knew all the other shit out there you wouldn’t know how to spell Ukraine because you’d be picking your brain up off the floor.” It hits even harder when you think about all those things we just kinda know, and then put that statement beside those things. It drills a pit in your stomach. One can’t help but take that statement as an admission that there is so much worse shit out there, such that Trump can’t believe it was  this little ole’ mistake, this little nothing burger, it’s this stupid shit that is going to loom throughout history as the base for impeachment. That is stunning. And so damn scary. We end the day as we started it, with abject fear as to what Trump and the Republicans are doing behind the scenes to abuse the ever living hell out of the laws that are supposed to oversee this stuff. That quote, what a quote. I hope it reverberates through the media for some time. **** Peace, y’all Jason jmiciak@yahoo.com and on Twitter @MiciakZoom    

Parnas in Trouble Again, Hid One Million Payment from Russia

One of my favorite open doors into deep Trumpworld is Lev Parnas and his most unfortunate arrest. Snark. Now, it would appear that Parnas has even more reason to assist in possible charges against Giuliani and Trump (since they go together like peanut butter and bananas). Federal prosecutors are now looking at charging Parnas with hiding an additional one million payment from Russia prior to his initial arrest. To be clear, Parnas did not commit another crime while under house arrest (a compromise with being bonded out, he has to stay in house or have limited time outside), this criminal charge applies to a Russian payment which occurred prior to his original arrest. Brief overview by Rawstory: Parnas, along with his alleged co-conspirator Igor Fruman, are charged with campaign finance violations relating to Giuliani’s schemes in Ukraine. Giuliani, a key mastermind of the plot to withhold foreign aid from Ukraine to force them to open investigations into former Vice President Joe Biden’s family, is himself reportedly under criminal investigation. Under criminal investigation? Rudy is hanging out to dry, and perhaps is only still free because Bill Barr intervened, since the appearance of criminal impropriety never stopped Barr, or because the FBI is too busy building a case against others in Rudy’s orbit to stop Rudy from giving them away at this point. The new possible charge really doesn’t hang much on Parnas that he didn’t already face. The campaign finance violations and money laundering was baked-in, so it isn’t like there is a giant new investigation about to open. Well, wait, the new payment is known to have come from Russia itself, which one might find interesting. But the money certainly should raise some eyebrows. Old Parnas and Fruman were nabbed on campaign finance violations associated with donations of $300,000. Sorry, but that amount won’t even get you lunch with someone high-up in American government. Hiding one million is more in the ballpark where people start paying attention. We know Trump was paying attention while grinning away for cameras in those lovely family shots with the two henchmen. Trump’s grifter son was paying attention as he lunched with his weird lunch dates. Rudy was glued to these guys like they were special prom dates. If one mixes a million dollars – from RUSSIA – in and among those people and soon the matter can’t help but draw a crowd, a crowd of prosecutors and media folks. Last, there has long been an question hanging over the entire Trump – Ukraine – Russia cloud. Who is Rudy’s sugar-daddy? Rudy isn’t hurting for change, but he’s not rich enough to be flying around the world playing Inspector Clouseau on his own money. The presumption has been that when law enforcement (or the press) finds whoever is paying Rudy, one will find the person at the heart of the Ukraine conspiracy. The fact that the payment came from Russia, according to prosecutors, well, that’s a bird of a different species. Parnas had one million hidden away, and – sorry to Lev, no offense, but he doesn’t strike me to be a guy that you’ll find down at the country club, enjoying the fruits of behind an executive vice-president of a large bank. He isn’t the one bankrolling the entire matter, no. The payment […]
