It’s been a busy 24 hours in the ongoing story of Donald Trump pressuring Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky to investigate Trump’s political rival Joe Biden in exchange for military and financial aid. First, there was Trump himself admitting it. Then there were Secretary of State Mike Pompeo and Secretary of the Treasury Steve Mnuchin hitting the Sunday talk show circuit to defend Trump, even if he did do it because Joe Biden is probably a crook. And of course Fox News was cranking up its own conspiracy theories in the service of Dear Leader, while the rest of the media explained why this is bad news for Joe Biden. And then there was Trump claiming that he was “considering” releasing the transcript of his extortion call. Uh huh.

“We’ll make a determination about how to release it, releasing it, saying what we said.” […]

Trump reiterated that he would “talk” about releasing details from the call, adding, “But you have to be a little bit shy about doing that.”

So sure, Trump is considering releasing the transcript … or releasing something “saying what we said.”

All of which will no doubt happen sometime after he finishes considering whether or not to release his tax returns.

He is breaking the law – again – by holding up release of the whistle blower report to Congress. If Congress doesn’t uphold the law, who will? And why should any of us obey the law now? No one is above the law??? Sure.

Not before it’s redacted by Barr. Barr will read it and will sound like Trump did something patriotic.

…You know , I once thought I couldn’t hate anyone as bad as my (x wife ). .. But I was wrong . And I know he lives and thrive’s on hate . …But to say I hate trump ,is an understatement . I’ve often thought, they should invent a new monopoly game , with like Trump tower , Trump’s golf ,Trump hotel . If you land on any of them , you go straight to HELL , don’t pass go , don’t collect 200 dollars. ..Whatever he releases ,will be a pack of lies . And we all know… Read more »

It is so disgusting to hear all the bad things Trump is doing. He needs to be thrown out of office pronto before he does any more damage to this country. I don’t understand Pelosi for not following through on impeachment. What is her problem. She needs to be impeached as well. Over 30 years in her position, too long. Time limits should be imposed on all the Senators and Congressmen. Mitch McConnel has been in it too long as well. They all have to go. We need new blood and new ideas in the administration. Enough is enough.

…One must consider that the Mueller report was “unable to verify “that Trump spoke with the Russians ,about his asking for help with his 2016 election. But now Trump (has admitted) he spoke with the president of the Ukraine, about help getting rid of Biden . You’d think that it would “lend weight “to the Mueller investigation !
..We’ll see !

…Trumps not worried ,because he knows his ZOMBIE BASE , will vote for him ,no matter what. . They feel connected to his behavior
( it’s what they’ve always felt ,
but were afraid to ) do ! So he become their —“proxy “—to destroy the American Democracy, on their behalf . Little did they know he’s been working for Putin. And they will be first , to go
..UNDER THE BUS .
But no matter they believe in

Can’t take the heat can you drumpf? You will be known as the most ignorant and hated “one term” president in U.S. history. As soon as our new Democratic president takes office in Jan. 2021 every single executive order you’ve written will be terminated.
