#ICYMI: Ambassador Sondland is testifying today about his work as the United States Ambassador to the European Union.

His opening statement has been publicly released.

Here are some key points that further undermine @HouseDemocrats' wayward impeachment effort.

Sondland testified that he recalled NO discussions with the State Department or White House about Vice President Biden or his son.

He added that he didn’t recall any effort to encourage an investigation into the Bidens.
Sondland stated that neither Ambassador Bolton nor Fiona Hill ever shared any critical comments to him about the Administration’s Ukraine policy.

Sondland added that he was “disappointed” by media reports of Hill’s critical comments.

#USA indicts #Turkey’s #HalkBank over $20 BILLION #Iran oil money (Very Likely This has to do with #Trump #impeachment Shenanigans)… #
Think about it: If #USA Gov were to investigate & indict all the #USA Banks-financial institutions’ executives for fraud, Intentional loan scams, money laundering & inside deals...well, there wouldn’t be a single bank left in US. Is there anyone who wants 2 challenge me on this?!
Didn’t think so😉

🔥Can we #ImpeachThePres⁉️Two of the articles of #impeachment against President Andrew Johnson were based on rude speech that reflected badly on the office: He made "harangues" criticizing Congress and questioned its legislative authority.
🔥Like Trump, racist, bombastic President Johnson also refused to follow laws and diverted funds allocated in an army appropriations act. Each action brought the presidency "into contempt, ridicule, and disgrace.”🔥…
Both presidents traveled the country, fanning racial animus. They viewed the Congress with disdain. They both also tried to undo some of the most important achievements of their predecessor, using executive power.”✍️

There is ALOT of arguing about the legal #Impeachment process, so I thought I would lay the steps out for you.

Regarding the #ImpeachTrump campaign,
I am not the right person to answer if the laws are being followed by The House against the impeachment of @POTUS
The Constitution lays out two specific actions, treason and bribery, that could lead to impeachment and removal of a president from office.

Then there is a broader category to accuse a president of a crime, although that category is more vague.
High crimes and misdemeanors
High crimes and misdemeanors and NOT defined in the Constitution.

▫First, an impeachment resolution must be introduced by a member of the House of Representatives.

Today, Fiona Hill, Trump's senior Russia advisor, goes behind closed doors for deposition to committee chairs spearheading the #impeachment inquiry.
Today is also Amb. Gordon Sondland's deadline for requested records re: Ukraine.
Sondland records are due by COB. His testimony for lawmakers is slated for Oct 16.
Then there is Semyon aka Sam Kislin, a longtime Giuliani associate. He is expected to be deposed today too.
(Interesting piece on Kislin here…)
Be sure to follow @CourthouseNews.

I am at the F--k Cancer Center today but back at it in full swing tomorrow. This week is going to be a doozy. Hold tight!

1 Should the Democrat party be outlawed?
That’s a pretty outlandish question I knew; but I’m not asking it it just because I don’t agree with their politics, no does it come from an emotional response, but rather rational thought, and pride for my country.
2/ Granted for years @TheDemocrats have been calling us “right wing extremists” based on mere opinion(emotion)and no facts.
I’m not coming from that POV.
Let them name call.
If I pose such a question it should be backed up not only with #facts but also law.
I’ll do that.
3/ so on that premise let’s get started.
I’m all about the #1a and our right t free speech, and that may protect ones hate speech but you can’t yell “FIRE” in a crowded movie theatre and hide behind the 1a. This is exactly what @TheDemocrats have been doing, and more.

@SpeakerPelosi says “Just the facts, ma'am- and the Constitution. His policy, his personality, his potty-mouth, that's about the election and let's make sure that we understand the reasons he is - the inquiry is because he has not honored his oath of office. We will honor ours.”
As I've said, we all agree: nobody came to Congress to impeach a President. This is very sad for our county and we want to conduct ourselves, as Democrats, as Members of Congress worthy of the Constitution that we are there to protect. ...””
POTUS has become a potty-mouth and children are listening. This is beyond disgraceful. But, for him to say the thing that he said about Joe Biden [in Minneapolis] was so far beyond the pale. Again, that has nothing to do with impeachment. That is about elections” #impeachment

I was looking around at the #Impeachment hashtag this morning and found a set of "russian" twitter #bots.
This guys tweet engagement (350+ retweets) is all bots.
They seem like spam bots but they are doing some interesting stuff so I figure I would post about them.
Here is what tipped me off to the bots. All the accounts are very similar.
I only say russian because the accounts use Cyrillic in their names and tweets.
They could be ran by anyone from anywhere, I really don't know.

We’re on the verge of discovering that MANY Republicans in the House and the Senate knowingly took dirty foreign campaign money.

What could better explain their behavior as co-conspirators?

#GOPBribery #GOPConspiracy
If the @GOPLeader in the House accepted bribe money from Turkish mobsters with names like Lev and Igor, do you think he could possibly be the only one?
I’ll bet dollars to donuts that @LindseyGrahamSC got his cut on a certain Columbus Day weekend at Mar-a-Lago.

Dear #GOP,

You think you’re capable of outsmarting #Trump. That the savvy that got you elected will best Trump’s infantile vacuum of knowledge. That you’ll escape this #impeachment fiasco.

You won’t. He’s taking you down. Here’s what will happen to you in life henceforth:

When he’s out of office, you think you’ll have escaped sanction because you’re still standing.

You think the voters will vote for you again because you’ll reshape your next campaign in an attempt to absolve yourself from direct enablement of this criminal White House.

But as he starts to go down, you’re going to have to jump ship and adhere to the rules of Congress. It’s either him or your career: it cannot be both.

Most of you will — in the end — choose your career. But you’re forever stained.

And at the end of your life…

1 - A lot of #MAGA #Patriots are rightly upset about the @FoxNews poll about impeachment.

But the changes in Fox and the @GOP just show that @realDonaldTrump is winning.

Follow along as I explain the #ImpeachmentHoax
2 - To understand zoom out to the 100,000+ foot level and travel back in time to 2016

@realDonaldTrump becomes the nominee for the @GOP

He wants to Make America Great Again

But to implement his policies and #MAGA means that he also has to #DrainTheSwamp
3 - All polls show @HillaryClinton winning the Presidency in a landslide. Great job @FiveThirtyEight

Liberal Conclusion: See there was no motive or reason for @BarackObama administration to create #FISAGate or set up @GeorgePapa19 etc.

All of that is a #ConspiracyTheory

The president's decision on #Syria based on the empty #EndlessWar rhetoric paved the way for #Erdogan & #Turkey's invasion and will be strategically disastrous for American interests for years to come as I explain👇
We chose the #Kurds as our proxy precisely because we didn't want to fight #EndlessWars - they did the heavy lifting for us. The president could have explained how he accomplished all this with his "infinite wisdom" while other presidents did not, as I explain here 👇
One outcome, among the many bad outcomes in #Syria will likely be the resurgence of #ISIS, which makes this an even worse decision than the premature withdrawal from #Iraq by Obama and #Biden. There's no excuse here. We've seen this happen before, as I explain 👇

When was the last time the MSM made a meme of @ewarren or @KamalaHarris?
Warren actually was among the 1st to call for #impeachment months ago and Harris has been discussing it for weeks.
Why is Biden getting special notice when he is the very last to call for impeachment?
Here is @ewarren talking #impeachment in September. Biden was in NH that same day as her rally in Keene. He told reporters he was in VT, however. No mention of impeachment.

Elizabeth Warren calls for Trump impeachment at campaign town hall
Here is @KamalaHarris talking #impeachment the very same day as Warren's rally--the day the formal impeachment inquiry was launched.

Thread: #Trump legal team arguments for creating the constitutional crisis of complete #obstruction turns on 3 arguments that are all merit less:
#TrumpOnstruction arg 1.: The House must vote to have #impeachmentknquiry. Nope. Constitution doesn’t require it & neither do House rules. Judiciary must vote articles out & then send to full House. They’re working on it.
#TrumpObstruction arg 2: His #dueprocess rights are being violated. Nope. You don’t have a right to all the evidence before your charges & preparing for trial. And #Whistleblower protection is necessary given enormous power of #POTUS. But Trump knows the allegations. We all do.

The #Ukraine call is enough to impeach Trump. His refusal to respond to House subpoenas makes #impeachment even more likely. Despite Democrats’ strategy to keep the impeachment inquiry simple, the House should subpoena the transcript of Trump’s call w/ #Erdogan.
2/ Trump will no doubt refuse to comply. But an #HJC investigation of the #Erdogan call will winnow fact from fiction & eventually yield witnesses, perhaps another whistleblower.
3/ There are critical reasons for looking more closely at the #Erdogan call. On its face, Trump acted unilaterally against a US ally in support of a dictator hostile to that ally — an abuse of presidential power. Digging deeper, the call has an appearance of #QuidProQuo
