Friday, October 11, 2019

Trump lie for personal gain? That's un-possible!

There is no claim in her statement that Trump lied. She serves at his whim and can be removed from the position as he chooses.
Why make a false headline?

#3 just admit you're fine with Trump and his inner circle using you, me and everybody else in this country as a personal piggy bank to be raided.

"There is no claim in her statement that Trump lied."

Trump administration lied about her, to fabricate a pretext for firing her.

No one said she was removed illegally.

What they said was she was removed because it benefited Trump, Giuliani and his friends financially. And those friends have now been arrested. That's a problem for Trump in the impeachment issue and a problem for Giuliani in the staying out of jail issue.

Ethics, to a righty.

No, I don't understand. I would never have guessed the Kennedys and Clintons are righties. Please explain,

I just read the entire opening statement. She's spot on.

What a sad state Trump & Giuliani and their criminal cabal have led us into.

PS I hope everyone reads her full opening statement.

14,000 Ukrainians have been killed by Russia in the ongoing war Russia's waging in eastern Ukraine.

Trump & Giuliani have the audacity to have this ambassador removed because she refused to play along with their illegal scheme to spread lies and withhold military aid for the Ukraine, corruptly extorting a newly elected president who was elected to root out corruption that was rampant in the Ukraine, until then controlled by crooks and oligarchs.

It's sickening.

Yovanovitch appears to be a very resolute figure that is not to be messed with: strong as a lion and tough as a knot.
