Lt. Col. Vindman bashed John Solomon in testimony

‘But you know, his grammar might have been right’

"In his deposition last month on Capitol Hill, Lt. Col. Alexander Vindman characterized as “false” the work of John Solomon, the former executive vice president for digital video at The Hill, according to a transcript released Friday. Vindman just might know: He has served as the top Ukraine hand at the National Security Council and watched as Solomon’s reports on the country in The Hill surfaced earlier this year. He gave his deposition as part of the House impeachment inquiry."

"To check on Solomon’s reporting, Vindman had quizzed his “interagency colleagues” at the State Department and the intelligence community. He asked for “background” and wanted to know if there was “anything substantive in this area.”

"Apparently there was not. Lack of substance notwithstanding, Yovanovitch was recalled early from her ambassadorial post in May over the allegations promoted by Solomon, Rudolph W. Giuliani, et al. U.S. diplomat George Kent, in his own deposition, said of Solomon’s early Ukraine reporting: “If not entirely made up in full cloth, it was primarily non-truths and non sequiturs.”

"Rep. Lee Zeldin (R-N.Y.) decided to press Vindman on his conclusion that Solomon was pushing bogus reporting.

Zeldin: Did your sources, though, say that everything was false or just parts of it were false?
Vindman: I think all the key elements were false.
Zeldin: Just so I understand what you mean when you say key elements. Are you referring to everything John Solomon stated or just some of it?
Vindman: All the elements that I just laid out for you. The criticisms of corruption were false.
Zeldin: You mentioned —
Vindman: Were there more items in there, frankly, congressman? I don’t recall. I haven’t looked at the article in quite some time, but you know, his grammar might have been right."

Schiff should approve zero GOP witnesses.

The GOP witness list is out and they are not dealing with the matter at hand at all. They want Schiff as a witness so they can go after him. They want Hunter Biden so they can go after him. They are trying to throw mud in lots of directions because they can't refute the actual charges. Oh! And they want to get revenge on the whistle blower too
Screw them!

Trumps calls with foreign leaders have long worried aides, leaving some genuinely horrified

"He pledged to Saudi officials in another call that he would help the monarchy enter the elite Group of Seven, an alliance of the world’s leading democratic economies."

In another call, in April 2017, Trump told Philippine President Rodrigo Duterte, who had overseen a brutal campaign that has resulted in the extrajudicial killings of thousands of suspected drug dealers, that he was doing an “unbelievable job on the drug problem.”

Trump’s personal goals seeped into calls. He pestered Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe for help in recommending him for a Nobel Prize, according to an official familiar with the call.

In a summer 2018 call with Prime Minister Theresa May, Trump harangued the British leader about her country’s contribution to NATO. He then disputed her intelligence community’s conclusion that Putin’s government had orchestrated the attempted murder and poisoning of a former Russian spy on British soil.

Fact Checker Analysis Trumps false claims about Hunter Bidens China dealings

“To date, Mr. Biden has not received any return or compensation on account of this investment or his position on the board of directors,” Mesires told The Fact Checker after Trump’s remarks with Zelensky. “The characterization of Mr. Biden as owning a $1.5 billion private equity firm funded by the Chinese, or suggesting that Mr. Biden has earned millions of dollars from the firm is a gross misrepresentation of Mr. Biden’s role with BHR.”

Mesires said that the investment management company “was capitalized from various sources with a total of 30 million RMB , or about $4.2 million, not $1.5 billion.” Because Biden acquired a 10 percent minority interest, his “capital commitment is approximately $420,000,” Mesires said.

The Pinocchio Test
The president says Hunter Biden “walked out of China with $1.5 billion in a fund” and earned “millions” of dollars from the deal. There is no evidence to support those claims.

Most damning thing in the transcript

Trump wasn't asking for an investigation of Biden, as has been reported. Trump was demanding a frame up job.

If Trump was asking for an investigation he would say, "Look into this and find out IF..." Instead, Trump told them what to find. Trump: " Good because I heard you had a prosecutor who was very good, and he was shut down and that’s really unfair. A lot of people are talking about that, the way they shut your very good prosecutor down and you had some very bad people involved. "

The truth is the prosecutor was a terrible and corrupt man and the whole world wanted him out. Trump gave the opposite claim to Ukraine along with his pressure to come up with the frame job.

Trump said: "The other thing, there’s a lot of talk about Biden’s son, that Biden stopped the prosecution and a lot of people want to find out about that so whatever you can do with the Attorney General would be great. Biden went around bragging that he stopped the prosecution so if you can look into it ... It sounds horrible to me."

There was no prosecution and Trump knew it. Trump was telling the lie to let the Ukrainians know that he expected the same lie from the Ukrainians.

Its time for the media and the Democrats to accuse Trump of what he actually did.

Its way more than just a phone call

Giuliani pursued shadow Ukraine agenda as key foreign policy officials were sidelined

https://www.washingtonpost.com/national-security/giuliani-pursued-shadow-ukraine-agenda-as-key-foreign-policy-officials-were-sidelined/2019/09/24/ee18aaec-deec-11e9-be96-6adb81821e90_story.html?wpisrc=al_news__alert-national--alert-world--alert-politics&wpmk=1

Trump's evil scam went on for months and many were involved and many in authority were very alarmed about Trump's actions. Giuliani was totally out of control.

"The perception of a parallel, hidden agenda intensified in the summer as officials at the NSC, Pentagon and State Department began reacting to rumors that hundreds of millions of dollars of military and intelligence aid to Ukraine was being mysteriously impeded.

“There were never any orders given, any formal guidance from the White House to any of the agencies,” said a U.S. official familiar with the matter. “And the NSC was scratching their heads: How is this possible?”

NSC officials, including Tim Morrison, who had replaced Fiona Hill as the senior director for European and Russian affairs, began organizing meetings to try to understand these hidden forces affecting Ukraine policy, officials said.

But even then, clear answers proved elusive. Officials were told that the money was being blocked by the Office of Management and Budget, without any accompanying explanation."

Trump says he has authorized release of transcript of call with the Ukrainian president

“I am currently at the United Nations representing our Country, but have authorized the release tomorrow of the complete, fully declassified and unredacted transcript of my phone conversation with President Zelensky of Ukraine,” Trump tweeted Tuesday afternoon.
