House Gets Damning Trump/Ukraine Tape [AUDIO]

The Associated Press reports:

The recording, which was first reported by ABC News, appears to contradict the president’s statements that he did not know Parnas, a key figure in the investigation. It came to light as Democrats continue to press for witnesses and other evidence to be considered during the Senate impeachment trial.

CNN reports:

“Get rid of her!” a voice appearing to belong to Trump says on the recording, according to ABC News, which on Friday first reported its existence. “Get her out tomorrow. I don’t care. Get her out tomorrow. Take her out. OK? Do it.”

This sounds more like a mob boss demanding a person be “wacked” or taken out.  Hugs

Sen. Sherrod Brown Rips ‘Spineless Republicans’, Trump’s ‘Lapdog’ McConnell

“Donald Trump doesn’t want witnesses…and new information and documentation,” Brown said, “Therefore, Mitch McConnell who is Donald Trump’s lap dog doesn’t want information and witnesses; therefore, 52 other relatively spineless republicans don’t want witnesses, don’t want information. They’re scared.”

“I talk to Republicans all the time quietly, individually. Many of them tell me that Trump’s a liar. A few said Trump’s a racist,” he continued. “They’re all afraid of him. They’re afraid he’ll campaign against them in their state. They’re afraid he’ll attach a nasty nickname to them. In this chamber, it’s like the Iraq war when I was in the House 15 years ago.”

“Fear does the business. Republicans are afraid of what Donald Trump will do,” he said.

Fox News is covering Trump’s impeachment trial — but with no audio of evidence from Democrats

Filed under: Criminal, Fascism, News, Political, Questions, Reason — Scottie @ 06:42

Fox News

  • Fox News in its prime-time evening coverage of impeachment proceedings is playing testimony by top Democrats with no sound, and adding live spin from Trump allies.
  • In his show, Sean Hannity assured viewers that the proceedings weren’t worth watching and attacked them as “24 hours of never-ending babbling, repetitive talking points.”
  • Fox News has long been accused of being an unofficial communications arm of the Trump White House, and its coverage of the impeachment proceedings is leading the ratings.

The network has made the decision not to broadcast live footage of the historic impeachment proceedings during the evening, instead broadcasting its regular schedule of hosts discussing the day’s events with guests.

Aaron Rupar, who covers politics at Vox, noted that in its prime-time early evening show — The Five — the segments on the day’s impeachment proceedings had no audio of Democrats laying out their case against the president. Instead, allies of the president present their defense of Trump while the footage silently plays.

Fox News’ decision to stick to its regular schedule has been a ratings winner so far, with 4 million tuning in for Hannity’s show Wednesday, according to data from Nielsen. 

In recent months the president has launched a string of attacks against Fox News, accusing the network of turning against him.

But it’s likely that he would have little complaint of its coverage of his impeachment trial so far.

GOP Senators Representing a Minority of Americans Are Preventing a Fair Impeachment Trial

GOP Senators Representing a Minority of Americans Are Preventing a Fair Impeachment Trial

Republicans who blocked a call for witnesses on Tuesday represent 15 million fewer people than Democrats who voted yes.

On Tuesday, senators representing 153 million Americans outvoted senators representing 168 million Americans.

A majority of the US public supports President Donald Trump’s impeachment and removal from office, and an overwhelming majority wants new witnesses to testify in the Senate’s impeachment trial. But Senate Republicans appear almost certain to succeed in acquitting Trump and blocking the admission of new evidence.

This makes the Senate deeply unrepresentative of the American people and puts Democrats at a major disadvantage, since Democrats tend to represent highly populated urban states while Republicans represent smaller, more rural ones. In 2018, Democratic Senate candidates won the popular vote by a margin of 54 to 46 percent, but Republicans gained two seats in the chamber. The GOP’s Senate majority is far whiter, more rural, and more conservative than the country as a whole.

As a result of this population divide, senators representing a smaller and smaller minority of Americans can block legislation supported by a majority of the public. Because removing a president from office requires support from two-thirds of senators, it’s now possible for 34 senators representing the 17 least-populous states with just 7 percent of the country’s population to prevent Trump’s ouster. (In reality, it wouldn’t play out quite like this, since some of the smallest states, such as Vermont and Delaware, are represented by Democrats.)

Republican Senators Are Going Full Gaslight on Impeachment, Which Is Kind of a Concern

Maybe Braun’s beef is with the “withhold foreign aid to coerce him into doing so.” Except Trump’s chief-of-staff, Mick Mulvaney, already admitted in public that they withheld the aid as part of a quid pro quo. One of Trump’s new arguments is that other administrations have withheld aid in the past, hoping that the public can’t make a distinction between withholding aid based on issues of the national interest and withholding aid until they ratfuck your domestic political opponent. But the implicit admission there is that Trump ordered the hold, which we already knew, and which the Government Accountability Office found to be a crime. Meanwhile, Ambassador Bill Taylor testified under oath that the military aid was linked to the Ukrainians announcing a Biden investigation, and contemporaneous texts back this.

Trump’s lawyers are also tacitly admitting this with one dimension of their arguments: that abuse of power does not constitute an impeachable offense. That is different than saying he didn’t do what he’s accused of—it’s an argument around the severity of the offense. Yet Braun seems to be on a different page of the book, maybe one marked “October 2019.” Or maybe the Trumpists simply flit between all the pages, sometimes all at once, trying to bury the public in bullshit so no one can see the plain truth of what happened. It is in no doubt, which is why the president and his allies refuse to allow direct witnesses to the scheme to testify. If it was all on the up-and-up, surely these public servants can honor their obligations to abide by congressional oversight powers, take the oath, and explain why it was all on the up-and-up.

There is a lot of information in this article.

Either you want the truth, and you must permit the witnesses, or you want a shameful cover-up. History will judge, and so will the electorate.

Trump had the absolute authority to fire her or move her himself. So why tell two goons like Lev and Igor (the ultimate henchman name btw) to do it unless you wanted more than to just fire her?

Play the tape over MSM for everyone to hear tRUmp Capone in action.

Oh wait … he does
