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

🔥#QuidProQuo 🔥Donors to the Trump inaugural committee -that is UNDER INVESTIGATION - got ambassador nominations. Trump knew large donors were more likely to be LOYAL when he asked for dirt on opponents or other favors... #Sondland nbcnews.com/politics/donal…
🤔While we are on the subject of Ambassadorships and loyalty and paybacks ... consider this👇
💥Trump also rewards ambassadorships for silence... hey 👋 @AMBZAMPOLLI

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

@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. 🤔

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. foreignaffairs.house.gov/_cache/files/a… #UkraineGate

The directive to freeze UKR aid came in June.

6/5/19: Zelenskiy spoke with Kushner & Rick Perry at a dinner in Brussels.

Trump used Pence to tell Zelensky that U.S. aid was still being withheld while demanding more aggressive ‘action on corruption’
💣Triggered2💣

Rick Perry says he'll cooperate with Congress on Ukraine questions

The Ukrainians likely understood Pence’s ‘action on corruption’ code to include the inv’n of the Bidens.

Trump's erratic foreign policy is diminishing the US's standing on the world stage.
💣Triggered3💣

Pence’s NatSec advisor was on the 7/25 call & the VP should have had access to the transcript w/in hours

Trump’s use of Pence is part of a broader pattern of using both exec authority & high-ranking officials in his adm to advance his personal/political interests

As @RitaKonaev notes, "Mattis had no problem disagreeing w/Obama about transgender people in the military or women in combat but won’t criticize Trump for asking foreign powers for dirt about political opponents.

This isn’t about him being above politics. This is his politics."
Excellent point here, and makes you wonder why Mattis' deference to the commander-in-chief is selectively applied in this manner 🤔
7 freshman House Ds, all with natsec experience: "If true, we believe these actions represent an impeachable offense ...

We call on our colleagues in Congress to consider the use of all congressional authorities available, including inherent contempt."

Shocker: Natalia Veselnitskaya—Russian Lawyer Talking Clinton Dirt & Magnitsky Sanctions at Trump Tower Meeting—Is Tied to Russian Govt. After emails expose her Kremlin ties, she admits being an informant & information source for Prosecutor General Chaika. nyti.ms/2KfLLTY
Trump has obfuscated the June meeting by focusing on "we got nothing from the Russians." In fact, Veselnitskaya passed critical information TO Russia. I wrote about just this last July: The Significance of June 9 Trump Tower Meeting Is Information TO Putin medium.com/@PaulaChertok/…
What a farce: House Intel Cmte Republicans 'find no evidence' of collusion w/ Russia…on same day Veselnitskaya is exposed as Russian government proxy. foxnews.com/politics/2018/…
