Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News

New details emerged on Tuesday of President Trump's pressure campaign on Ukraine, intensifying demands on Senate Republicans on the eve of a historic impeachment trial to include witness testimony and additional documents in the proceeding. The dozens of pages of notes, text messages and other records lay out work conducted by Rudolph W. Giuliani, Mr. Trump's personal lawyer, and his associate Lev Parnas on behalf of the president.

I was reading about this.

It won't matter. His cultists are pot committed at this point and won't budge for anything.

I don't see how Trump can claim executive privilege for documents relating to his personal attorney conducting personal business for him:

Adam Klasfeld @KlasfeldReports

INBOX: House Foreign Affairs Chair Eliot Engel wants the State Department to provide "documents, information, and a briefing from senior officials" on potential threats to Ambassador Yovanovitch's security, as revealed in yesterday's Lev Parnas probe.

I thought I could care less, and then I found out that I couldn't.

And you disputed that you're a piece of schit?

The worse it gets the less you care.

You'd HAVE to adopt such attitude.

More confirmation that Trump is a criminal and a liar... and more confirmation that Trumpers couldn't care less.

It's never been a question of a hole being there, but of how deep it goes.

There's no question about whether or not Trump is a criminal and a liar and is only using his position as POTUS to enrich himself.

Zero questions about it. I don't even see anyone trying to Trumpsplain what he says anymore because there isn't enough free time in the day to do so.

What it boils down to is, does it bother enough people that they will vote against him in November? I don't know. We'll find out.

You're not changing their minds, and impeachment is a total longshot.

The strategy is clear: expose Trump for the buffoon he is to get those middle votes. Obviously still need viable candidates at Pres and VP but piling on Trump can only help. And the piling on is due to his own actions.

Eh. I think the former is more important as you'll never go broke gambling on the apathy and ignorance of the American electorate.
