How much do we really know about #MarieYovanovitch? #Google searches scrubbed to show only #ImpeachmentHoax stories. #Wikipedia article doesn't mention #Somalia. #Yovanovitch posted in #Armenia where factional violence grew commonplace. Complaints 2009:…
#ImpeachmentHearings are short on substance, long on drama, most notably, the manipulative 'sad clown' performance from #Clinton-#Neocon #MarieYovanovitch.
Her tilt toward #Islamist causes, refusal to recognize #ArmenianGenocide, factional violence her specialty. #Trump knows.

The #KMCPamirPioneers next 1st ascent was the demure Pik a-Boo Peak via the NORTH GLACIER ROUTE! Summitted by @StevieG_wonders @Tinkadventures & Jared Kitchen

@StevieG_wonders @Tinkadventures @ClubKMC @MONTANEuk @ExpeditionFoods @mef_org @thealpineclub @Team_BMC Everyone assumes it was @Tinkadventures who named this mountain Pik a-Boo, but actually it was Jared & @StevieG_wonders.

Here's Pik a-Boo from the Altyn Daria valley - the actual summit is not visible and only reveals itself during the climb.

It's a shy mountain.

It hides.🏔️😊

@ClubKMC @MONTANEuk @ExpeditionFoods @mef_org @thealpineclub @Team_BMC @FieldNotesBrand @Rohantime @AndyMilesExped @StevieG_wonders @AndyStratford68 @StuartHurworth This is the whole team a few days earlier.

We are heading out from the relative comfort of Basecamp to the Bel Uluu Valley (between the mountains you see on the right).

Our packs are full of everything we'll need to set up ABC (advanced base camp) and do acclimatisation runs.
@ClubKMC @MONTANEuk @ExpeditionFoods @mef_org @thealpineclub @Team_BMC @FieldNotesBrand @Rohantime @AndyMilesExped @StevieG_wonders @AndyStratford68 @StuartHurworth @Tinkadventures We had become used to conditions near basecamp at 3,172m.

We present as evidence this photo of Emily cheerfully crossing the Bel Uluu river.

The Soviet maps listed our objective Ak Chukur at 4,970m.

To acclimatise we would need to spend nights sleeping higher up the mountain.

Paul Manafort & his fixer, "former" #Russian🇷🇺spy Konstantin Kilimnik, were bankrolled by Oleg Deripaska to promote Russian interests in the former Soviet bloc nation of of #Kyrgyzstan, including the closure of the US military base Manas.🤬…
In addition to Manafort, guess who else was involved w/#Russia's🇷🇺plot to get the US military base out of #Kyrgyzstan⁉️

Rinat Akhmetshin, the "former" #Russian spy & US citizen(!), who also attended Don Jr's #RussianLawyer meeting‼️
