And this is why I say Congress has to win this fight if they really believe they are right, and why Pelosi is infuriating about this whole situation.

She says on one hand 'abuse of power' and on the other hand, 'oh we can still work with the President to advance our agenda...'

The fact that a co-equal Branch can't use its powers without risking a Civil War shows the system is out of balance.

If I go in to court and tell the Judge to **** off I think his mother is a *****, the judicial branch can imprison me for contempt, not for any statutory violation, but simply for violating the rules of behavior. Likewise, if I commit a crime that violates statute or even fail to appear to some Regulatory body, they can use their inherit powers granted by law to fine me automagically.

But like it's ability to write law and conduct oversight, Congress has Abdicated this power.

Again it was Liberals that caused this mess by abusing Executive Power and not answering in the past, or by punting legislative authority to the Executive Regulatory authority for political expediency.

If it would result in a Civil War for the Congress using its clearly Constitutional Power, that is a problem with The People who have allowed it to get this far.

It's like when I see people talk about having a Civil War if Trump is impeached...yeah you have a Right of Revolution always, but if you lose it is still sedition, and Congress if they really think they have a case as a co-equal Branch, they have an obligation not to abdicate their powers.

If she really thinks there are Impeachable Offices, she has a duty to her oath to do whatever, if she needs to hold a vote to force the other side to play, she needs to do it. If she needs to instruct the Sergeant arms to drag people to the Washington crypt, she needs to do it.

By not doing it, she is violating her Oath to the Constitution or she is full of **** about the alleged Impeachable Offences.

MSM trying to paint this picture with the term "visibly shaken" by the Trump -Ukraine call...

They should counter that by saying - "What was this person SO afraid of to be shaking if Ukraine were to look into what really happened?"

@Tjsaid -- Well I'd be "visibly shaken" too if I was one of the people who intentionally allowed a bunch of jihadis into the United States, ignored reports (on purpose) that they were trying to learn to fly planes but not land, and then 3,000 Americans were murdered as a direct consequence.

Oh, and that's not the ONLY instance of that either. Then you have Ukraine's "revolution" (we caused it, admitted at this point), our CONTINUING interference after it started, our repeated looting through their energy industry that is still going on with Mitt Romney's former Nat Sec advisor, AND THE GUY WHO WAS IN CHARGE OF COUNTER-TERRORISM AT THE TIME OF 9/11 IS ON THE ****ING BOARD OF BURISMA, JOINING RIGHT AFTER HUNTER BIDEN LEFT, and of course, years ago Iran where we pulled the same **** due to a "request" by the British -- and which now has, among other things, led to the mess over there with Iran and Syria.

Yeah, I'd be ****ting in my pants if I got whiff of the idea that a President told the CIA spook-fest folks to go **** a goat and THEN he started digging around where I had buried all the bodies.

Winding it down.

My apologies, the following quotes are from the above link via ZH because I'm paywalled. At least the above link should work.

" "The official was visibly shaken by what had transpired, the C.I.A. officer wrote in his memo, one day after Mr. Trump pressured President Volodymyr Zelensky of Ukraine ... A palpable sense of concern had already taken hold among at least some in the White House ..."

At first it sounded to me like someone was worried about their retirement consulting gigs. But yeah, I forgot about all about the stuff you mention above, plus moar.

Not much of this stuff shocks me. There are too many people in DC who have become at least very well to do, sucking off the people of the US. Foreign policy and who comes over the border or leaves the country to privateer, is a big part of it. I am beginning to believe guys like Soros made their fortunes, looting countries with the help of the US and British governments. Tip something over, leverage up some cheap asset, bring in the IMF with backed money, reflate and cash in.

I bring up Soros because he is not only behind the revolt in Ukraine, but behind trying to provoke something close to civil war in the US. Soros and a few other swampers gave a fortune to Hillary. Look up Priorities USA and the sizable number of accumulated $5 million to $13 million contributions, by a few people. They didn't make lump contributions, as you have to add up multiple contributions to get the totals. I think Soros was in for $10 million.

One of the problems is these Soros organizations, in a large part are Federally funded. I have seen an accusation that these groups were the actual recipients of the fines levied during the Obama administration. What the hell is our money doing in what are basically anti-American groups.

There is something rotten in the Atlantic Council. Maybe the CFR, which has controlled various positions in the US government, for decades, usually the Secretary of the Treasury, CIA director, AG, Federal Reserve chairman and often the Presidency. See what happens when someone, not engaged with one of these groups or the Trilateral Commission is elected President. Reagan was the last one.

Think there isn't a link? Where was Biden, when he was boasting about extorting Ukraine into firing a prosecutor? CFR. How many of those people have their fingers into something making big money in foreign relations. The Atlantic Council has their hands all over Ukraine, including highly likely foreign intervention in the 2016 election. It was likely known that Manafort was going to do something for the winning Republican and there is evidence in the DNC emails the release was coordinated with Manafort joining Trump.

Who is Manafort? Who is John Podesta? Who is Tony Podesta? These 3 were political racketeers, who took advantage of government induced lobby efforts. John Podesta would create some kind of problem and Tony would work for the opposition. Tony and Paul were in Ukraine together. Tony went into hiding, when Manafort was charged. John was on the inside of the Obama and Clinton White House and running the HRC show in 2016. Why a pass on one side and a massacre on the other? They were all with the same *****s.

We not only need look at the Democrat nominees for President, but the Republicans as well. If the truth was known, the Bush's, Clintons, Gore, Kerry, Obama, Dole, Romney and McCain are up to their necks in this. Maybe Dole has some innocence, because I think he was nominated because he wasn't going to beat Clinton. Note that Dole quit and became a lobby ***** in DC. We know about Al Gore, peddler of fake science to the tune of making him a billionaire. How many swampers are set to get rich, should they push the climate change nonsense to legislation and forced compliance. They win, we lose. McCain was in all kinds of dirty stuff. Note how fast he came down with cancer, when Trump was elected and he and his henchmen were up to their necks in dirty dealing in Ukraine and the UK. Romney, for those younger than 60, was the kid of the Michigan governor, a man who ran for President, as well, in 68. We know where he has lived and prospered the past 50 years.

I stopped voting in 1994, because I realized we the people weren't getting a choice. Jimmy Carter was anointed by the Rockefeller group, an unknown made President. I doubt Nixon was put in because he was a super crook and taken down for the same reason. He followed LBJ. Where the hell did they find Obama, a man elected to the Senate and immediately pushed as a candidate for President. Shouldn't the President have some management skills instead of being an organizer of political trouble makers. We still can't verify Obama's life or where he was born. Then the one to top all, HRC. Has there ever been a more obvious crook, a bumbling idiot nominated for President? Someone so stupid they don't know keeping State secrets on a private server, running around the world with unencrypted devices and mixing business with their private foundation, shouldn't be allowed in DC, much less the office of the President. She rigged her own nomination. Trump at least had to win. I doubt Trumps opponents didn't have use of massive dirt digging machines and inside information.

How many Ukraine's are there? It is a suspicion of mine that Ukraine was overthrown because the State Department knew the country was going to be run by a crook. The US State department even influenced who was going to take over. IT wasn't hard for them to bring in their crooks, as Ukraine was over the international banker barrel. We must not forget Biden was VP, but Kerry was the Secretary of State. Look whose associated swampers were put into cushy positions there?

Since they went after Manafort, after giving him a clean bill of health, it might be a good idea to look at who is running all of these Presidential campaigns. Why is the US always on the losing side of official policy? It might be the same reason, the famous bank robber answered that he robbed banks because that is where the money is. Why are people in the US getting poorer and poorer? Because these policies are sucking money out of the middle class through the credit system and putting it in the pockets of pawns around the world.

Now about Trump leaving office. Realize Obama really didn't leave office totally. Obama set up a sabotage of the Trump administration before he left. These people in key places are set up with massive employment security. I believe Trump is being framed by many such people. How would you like to be a fly on the wall of the oval office any time a foreign phone call is made? Remember, Obama removed protections about sharing information and put in a number of leakers in key places.

Don't forget about Pelosi's wrap up smear comment. If I were Trump, I would run one commercial after another with her description. They have used this in the collusion story with Russia and on Bret Kavanaugh and now on Trump again. Trump makes a phone call and then they make up the story. I suspect Bill Taylor's comment was planned. How are you going to get to the root of corruption in Ukraine, if you can't get through the layer that may have allowed it to happen. Biden was in charge. He can't hide behind being 1 of 20 running for President. Remember, Trump was the actual nominee and the Democrats and likely some swamp Republicans ran a foreign interference scam on him. It appears Taylor is repeatedly going out of his way to imply Trump is using coercion to get Biden investigated. The truth is the known about Biden stinks like a pool of turds, flies included.

I'm pretty sure the long line of succession was intended in case a large number of the government officials were killed at once. If Trump gets thrown out Pence steps in and gets his replacement confirmed. Then that person is next in line not Nancy. They would have to throw both out at once and I'm pretty sure that would make things extra shooty right there. But who cares what was intended at this point.

It doesn't take too much neuron power to figure out why the CIA leaker was so "triggered" when he heard about that phone call. The IG said he had a "professional relationship" with one of the 2020 Rat candidates. Run that thru the Bull**** Stripper and we're left with the likely result: the candidate the leaker worked with is Joe Biden and it scared the **** out of him to hear that the Trump was talking to the Zelensky where the words "Rosneft" "Biden" and "fraud" were used because the leaker himself or someone close to him is up to his ******* with Joe and Hunter's fun and games in Ukraine.

The real question isn't what Trump did. I suspect there isn't a President in the last 80 years that didn't have some conversation that would raise eyebrows. The discussion is about anything, but the real issue is what the hell is rotten in Ukraine.

What happened in Ukraine recently? A guy won the Presidency there would wasn't under the thumb of the crooks. At least that is the story behind the story. Wasn't the Oh **** moment going to be when he and Trump started comparing notes? The story about the DNC and the Atlantic Council doing dirty work in Ukraine, during the 2016 election isn't a new story. It is merely a story that the lying media has failed to give any coverage. So is the Biden deal to force out the prosecutor. It hasn't been debunked. It has been ignored and likely covered up.

This is a bureaucratic and deep Swamp cover up and the whole game has been a deep swamp coverup. How many Senators have their fortunes tied to stealing of foreign aid and sweetheart deals? We will find out, if Trump is actually thrown out of office. Expelling Trump is the death of the Republican Party. Revealing the corruption in Ukraine and other countries is the death knell of God only knows who. The likely suspects are HRC, Kerry, Obama and Biden. Quite likely many people in the Department of State.

The US State Department knocked over Ukraine. They also knocked over several governments in Northern Africa. What was the plan with Libya? I think they have around 2 million BPD of oil production at some time in the past. How much oil is there that hasn't been drilled? We are finding out there are massive reserves never tapped in West Texas, though it has been a major production center for close to 100 years. Who was going to get the nice director seats in these countries.

Rudy brought up Romania last night. What is rotten in Rumania? I'm sure Giuliani has a few skeletons himself, but he does have an anti-corruption history behind him. I suspect there are many that wish him dead in DC. His tit is now in the wringer with much of Congress. The goods are coming out. Question is, are the MSM more interested in a manufactured story or a small group of connected Americans stealing billions of US tax payer dollars?

How many Ukraine's are there?

That's been my thought too. There's never just one rat. It would explain the craziness and urgency to kill this investigation. They seem to have gambled on going all in with their lies. Not wanting however many other countries this has been done in to come out too would make a lot of sense.
