[ Editor’s Note: Trump made a big mistake by piling on all of his heavy hitters, as they all are subject to UkraineGate subpoenas, something a wiser president would have used one person for.

Get ready for lots of Congressional hearing news this fall, a great distraction not only for the Trump regime and its running the country, but also for Congress, as this is going to take up a huge amount of its time, and we will probably all be sick of it, when it is all done.

The sleeping dog is now the NY State Attorney General, who will be getting Trump’s tax returns, which alone could see “Trump’s Goose” being served over the holidays, depending on how much Trump attorneys can slow down the process.

And we can’t discount new scandals popping up, including something from the Epstein case. America voted for Mr. Reality TV, and we certainly are going to see him in action. Notice I did not say we would be getting our money’s worthJim W. Dean ]

Panorama of the US Capitol building

– First published … September 27, 2019

Three Democratic-led US House of Representatives committees on Friday issued subpoenas to US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo, seeking to compel him to hand over documents with regard to his contact with Ukrainian authorities.

According to the document, House Foreign Affairs, Intelligence and Oversight Committees “are investigating the extent to which President Trump jeopardized national security by pressing Ukraine to interfere” with the 2020 presidential election.

The committee subpoenas warn that any “failure or refusal to comply with the subpoena shall constitute evidence of obstruction of the House’s impeachment inquiry”.

“Pursuant to the House of Representatives’ impeachment inquiry, we are hereby transmitting a subpoena that compels you to produce the documents set forth in accompanying schedule October 4, 2019″, the three committee chairs wrote in letters to Pompeo. “The subpoenaed documents shall be part of the impeachment inquiry and shared among the Committees”.

The committees have scheduled depositions for five State Department officials over the next two weeks, including former US Envoy to Ukraine Marie Yovanovitch, Envoy Kurt Volker – the US Special Representative for Ukraine, and Envoy Gordon Sondland, the US Envoy to the European Union.

Last week, a whistleblower filed an official complaint with the inspector general of national intelligence alleging that US President Donald Trump attempted to solicit a foreign campaign contribution.

After two days, the US House of Representatives announced its intention to move forward with an impeachment inquiry against the US president.

Trump allowed the release of an unredacted transcript of his conversation with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky.

The transcript revealed that Trump asked Zelensky to work with his personal lawyer and the US attorney general to “look into” the case of Joe Biden, who admitted publicly in 2016 to having threatened Ukraine authorities with withholding $1 billion in US loan guarantees if Kiev did not fire the prosecutor who had been investigating a Ukrainian gas company linked to his son, Hunter.

The transcript did not, however, contain signs that the US president overtly threatened to withhold financial assistance to Ukraine if Zelensky did not do him this favor, but Democrats are accusing Trump of using his power to request evidence against a potential competitor in the next presidential race.

  1. It would be nice if these democrats out to sling Trump’s neck were paragons of virtue, but they’re not! They care little about America’s illegal foreign wars and incursions, don’t give a hoot about the shameful national debt, are unwilling to call out the real foreign influence in our elections and affairs; Israel, only seem to care about keeping the borders open. and play to their own brand of corporate benefactors; big media, big labor, big pharma, big insurance. Both of the major political parties are off the charts in sucktitude. Enjoy Trump’s demise. Things weren’t much better before Trump, and they won’t be after he’s gone. End of the day, these people and their sycophants only care about themselves. Their one guiding principle is, and has been, “apres moi, le deluge”.

  2. This whole thing is becoming such a circus. The good news is that Trump’s administration will be so wrapped up in defending itself it won’t be fighting any war with Iran.
