An anonymous #Whistleblower whose complaint prompted an #ImpeachmentInquiry misled the Intelligence Community Inspector General (ICIG) about his or her communications with Congress, according to a source familiar with details of the complaint. (Thread 👇)…
The source told @EpochTimes that the #Whistleblower didn’t check the box to disclose whether they previously communicated the allegations to “Congress or congressional committees.”
Not checking the box is misleading, if not outright false, since @RepAdamSchiff admitted that his staff had communicated with the #Whistleblower prior to the filing of the complaint.

The misleading answer on the application may put the whistleblower in legal peril.

The liberal media want us to believe Nancy is invincible. Nope! She is a dud who allows her party chairs to lie. The impeachment inquiry is a political move designed to help Democrats win the election. #ImpeachmentHoax
Nancy is clueless. This entire impeachment inquiry is politically motivated. A real media would expose the corruption but they hate Trump too much. I will never trust them. #ImpeachmentInquiry #Coup
Even with the transcript and the Ukraine president saying no quid pro quo the Democrats and liberal media are trying to create a crime as they did with Russia Collusion.

Turkey is bombing Northern Syria.
U.S. Troops have not completely withdrawn.
Turkey has no idea where U.S. Troops are or will be.
In essence Trump has given Turkey permission to invade and a pass if our Troops are harmed or killed by friendly fire.
This is exactly what Putin wants. Kurds gone. Nothing stands in the way of Russian naval sub base. This will stop the Qatar Natural Gas Pipeline and now Europe is 100% dependent on Russia for Natural Gas.

It's always about the oil.
This is a distraction to the #impeachmentinquiry, Trumps Taxes, #UkraineScandal, #WhistleBlower. Everything Trump touches is destroying our Nation, Our standing in the World and our commitment to our Allies.

Based on docs & interviews with over 24 (!) US officials:

How @USAmbEU #Sondland seized control of Ukraine portfolio to help Trump:

Force Ukraine to forge kompromat on Biden.

Crimes: extortion, abuse of power & election interference… #Giuliani #Manafort
@USAmbEU Ambassador #Sondland’s predecessor, @TonyLGardner:

[Sondland's] special assignment to Ukraine is “extremely unusual,’’ since it has little to do with the EU. 🤔

And Sondland's own colleagues are 'not aware' of the scope of his activities in Ukraine. 🤔…

Former US @SpecRepUkraine #KurtVolker provided testimony to the #HouseIntelligenceCommittee on Oct 3.

He contradicted several of the claims of the #WhistleblowerComplaint at the center of the Democrat's #ImpeachmentInquiry of President Trump. (Thread 👇)…
Volker told lawmakers he did not partake in urging #Ukraine to investigate @JoeBiden.

The testimony directly contradicted a hearsay claim in the anonymous #WhistleblowersComplaint suggesting that #Volker and the @USAmbEU, #GordonSondland engaged with Ukrainian officials to…
…help them handle Trump’s request to investigate #Biden.

“[At] no time was I aware of or took part in an effort to urge Ukraine to investigate former Vice President Biden,” Volker said.…

Texts shows it all happened & more: Trump abused power in the most egregious way imaginable. He extorted vulnerable Ukraine. He held military aid while pressing for a commitment—IN WRITING—to investigate Biden & bogus "NOT Russia collusion." How many Ukrainians died as a result?!
If you don’t feel sick to your stomach reading the nightmare Trump & his corrupt GOP cronies created for Ukraine, how they perverted US State Dept for their pro-Russia goals, you need serious soul-searching and/or propaganda deprogramming.… #UkraineGate

Today @HouseForeign, @HouseIntel & @OversightDems received testimony from Amb Volker as part of the House impeachment inquiry. Following the interview, Chairs @RepEliotEngel, @RepAdamSchiff & @RepCummings updated members.

Read the full letter ⤵️…
Current & former @StateDept officials have begun cooperating with the #ImpeachmentInquiry. Based on the first production of materials, it has become immediately apparent why Secretary Pompeo tried to block these officials from providing information.
The texts Amb Volker provided reflect concerns raised by a State Dept official. He expressed concerns that military assistance & meeting between the presidents were being withheld to pressure 🇺🇦 to deliver on Trump’s demand for UKR to launch politically motivated investigations.

But first, news about work in the House to #LowerDrugCosts w/ #HR3.
With #MadamSpeaker's stellar leadership, the Democratic House Majority is more than able to WALK + CHEW GUM at the same time.

As they've been doing throughout self-labeled #GrimReaper McConnell's obstruction, @HouseDemocrats are working #ForThePeople and to #ExposeTheTruth.
@HouseDemocrats Just as the past week has confirmed how ill-suited Trump is to the task of being President, it has made something else crystal clear:


Thank you #MadamSpeaker for your principled leadership to #ProtectOurDemocracy.

After the passing of any Articles of impeachment by the House of Representatives, the scenario that Mitch McConnell will refuse to allow a trial in the Senate is obviously very real. You can bank on it. 1/10
Mitch McConnell has made a despicable career of obstructionism & wrongly breaking Senate norms.

There is reason to proceed with awareness of McConnell's tactics & not rush impeachment. The longer we have, the more wrongdoing we can uncover & sway more public opinion.
If McConnell refuses a trial, the next step the House could take would be suing the Senate, which would end up at the SCOTUS.

We need to ensure the GOP bears the weight of refusing to hold lawlessness accountable. DT is already using impeachment to try & rally his dupes. 3/10

Trump told Lavrov & Kislyak in the infamous May 2017 Oval Office meeting that he was unconcerned about Moscow’s interference in the U.S. election because the United States did the same in other countries, an assertion that prompted alarmed White House officials.

The same meeting in which Trump revealed highly classified information that exposed a source of intelligence on the Islamic State.

He also said during the meeting that firing FBI Director James B. Comey the day before had relieved “great pressure” on him.

A memorandum summarizing the meeting was limited to all but a few officials with the highest security clearances in an attempt to keep the president’s comments from being disclosed publicly.

It is not clear if the memo was placed into the secret system.

🔥Putin’s top propagandist and conspiracy theorist is ⁦⁦@realDonaldTrump⁩. The Ukraine Plot, approved by Putin, involves a “fake” peace plan until Trump gets Nobel Prize, RU sanctions released, and then a false flag so Putin takes back Crimea🔥…
🔥PROOF 🔥Trump is continuing to extort Zelensky. First, he told Zelensky that military aid was contingent on investigating Biden. Now, he wants to dictate a RU - Ukraine peace deal that will position Putin for his eventual plan to re- invade Crimea. 😲
Look at Zelensky... This was the exact moment he realized that the military aid the United States gave him is actually not only tied to the Biden investigation - it’s also tied to advancing Trump’s interest in pleasing Putin 😳

It’s NOT easy to get rid of a sitting president.

The steps in the process for impeaching a president are:

1– an impeachment resolution must be introduced by a member of the House of Representatives.
— The speaker of the House must then direct the U.S. House Committee on the Judiciary (or a special committee) to hold a hearing on the resolution to decide whether to put the measure to a vote by the full chamber and when to hold such a vote.
A simple majority of the Judiciary Committee must approve the resolution.

If the Judiciary Committee approves the resolution, it moves to a full vote on the House floor.

If a simple majority of the those present and voting in the House approve an article of impeachment,

As long as @SpeakerPelosi continues to throw wet blankets on #ImpeachmentInquiry momentum, all Trump’s corruption will be normalized forever.

In 1973, @HouseJudiciary Chair Rodino hired an "inquiry staff" of 100, which included 44 lawyers. Pelosi has hired ZERO.
“The Framers were concerned that a president could abuse his authority in ways that would undermine the democratic process and that could not wait to be addressed. So they created a mechanism for considering whether a president is subverting the rule of law…
...or pursuing his own self-interest at the expense of the general welfare—in short, whether his continued tenure in office poses a threat to the republic. This mechanism is impeachment.”…
