Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News
Sunday, November 17, 2019

Previously two appointed officials at the White House Office of Management and Budget refused congressional subpoenas to testify but now Mark Sandy, a career employee of the OMB, is making it known that he will testify in private on Saturday upon receipt of an expected subpoena. Sandy is the official who signed the order that formalized the freeze on military aid to Ukraine.

Sandy coming forward demonstrates why it may be a bad idea on top White House officials to refuse to cooperate with the investigation. Non-partisan underlings are likely to continue to come forward to provide much of the information that Congress is seeking. Refusing cooperation leaves the White House without a defense against any information that comes to light during the hearings.

Cue claims of "never Trumper" and "deep state".

Because anyone who says anything bad about Trump must be biased. It can't be because he actually DOES these things. And, for some strange reason, no one who ISN'T a "never Trumper" will agree to testify to contradict (under oath) all the claims of the "never Trumpers".

Pence aide testified that Trump's efforts to pressure Ukraine were 'inappropriate'

Jennifer Williams told investigators that she took notes while she listened in on Trump's July 25 phone call.

In her hand-written notes, Williams jotted down that Zelensky specifically mentioned Burisma, the Ukrainian energy company where Biden's son, Hunter, was a board member. But a summary of the call put out by the White House makes no mention of Burisma.

I can't wait for Trump to call Pence's aide a deep state, Never Trumper.

Oh wait, he already has:

Donald J. Trump @realDonaldTrump

Tell Jennifer Williams, whoever that is, to read BOTH transcripts of the presidential calls, & see the just released ststement from Ukraine. Then she should meet with the other Never Trumpers, who I don't know & mostly never even heard of, & work out a better presidential attack!

Daggers to your heart Jeff. After all the water you've carried for Trump and he denies knowing you.

Just for the record: Being a Never Trumper is a very valid thing to be.

Why would Pence hire a "never trumper" as his aide? Is he secretly out to get Trump impeached so he can ascend to the Presidency? Is Pence in charge of the "deep state coup"?

What did Pence know and when did he know it?

Nothing, and since birth...in that order.

All the witnesses who have testified at the Impeachment Inquiry have done so under oath, and at the risk of criminal Perjury charges.

None of those who attack the witnesses have done so under oath.

Bears repeating anytime a witness is attacked for their testimony.

Another target to intimidate!

Republicans can't wait until they expose the whistleblower so they can try and destroy that person for coming forward and doing the right thing.

Every one of Pootins Puppies that does this should be impeached for abuse of power, witness intimidation and obstruction of justice.

Just for the record Trump has made it clear he is only President of his Deplorables. They act like Democrats are not the Ben American.

If you are a liberal or Democrat then Trump acts like he is not your president.

As it turns that is the majority of voters.

So what does that make Trump?

The Never President?

Correction

"the Ben American". Should be

"even American"

#22 | Posted by donnerboy at 2019-11-18 01:21 PM | Reply

Or maybe Trump is the first

"Never Really the President of Everyone President"

"Been following the House hearings and am still waiting to hear an impeachable offense."

Pretend it was Obama.

Better yet, tell us now it'll be okay if President Liz Warren holds up Congressionally-approved aid until she gets dirt on Nikki Haley.

Unless you're one of the 435 members of the US House of Representatives it doesn't matter what you hear or what you don't hear.

Apparently you can't seem to admit the truth, or answer a direct, basic question, because the answer would embarrass you.
