Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News
Sunday, January 26, 2020

A full, 80-minute video of President Donald Trump calling for the ambassador of Ukraine to be booted out of her post was released by PBS News on Saturday. The recording also picked up Trump telling his associates to "get rid" of then-Ambassador Marie Yovanovitch, adding that they needed to "take her out."

And for those too drunk on the Trump-aid to understand the problem here, Donald is the President of the United States (as he keeps telling us ad nauseum) and he can give official orders and directives through governmental channels to remove any official that he wants to by using normal protocols. The President doesn't need to give orders to non-governmental apparatchiks working with his personal attorney using mafia-like language, circumventing Yovanovitch's boss, Mike Pompeo.

There is a reason Trump decided not to use official channels to remove this ambassador and there-in lies one of the reasons he has abused his presidential power in service of his own agenda, not that of this nation's.

Mobster Trump talks like organized crime murderers and extortionists.

Funny how all TehranTony's lies go against Trump, never does one fall in his favor....

Fascinating actually.

New rule: if TehranTony posts an assertion, actually the opposite happened. (Anti-TonyPodal)

"TehranTony!" Ooooh that stings, right Tony?

For me, the significance of the tape lies more in providing evidence confirming what Mr Parnas has been saying (and showing Pres Trump to be lying), than in what Pres Trump actually said.

Another event...

Lying sacks of schit don't get to be snarky about other people's posts.

"take her out" is how mobsters and criminals speak.

She was holding up Trump's "drug deal" as John Bolton put it. She had to be sleeping with the fishes.

Trump et al are a pack of liars, so who do you believe?:

Steven Portnoy @stevenportnoy


The WH press secretary went on TV today and said she believed Rudy Giuliani was at that dinner, and that he brought his two associates to the table.

But he says he *wasn't* there, and that he hadn't even *met* them yet.....

Paula Reid @PaulaReidCBS

NEW: Rudy Giuliani tells me he wasn't at April 2018 dinner and *didn't even meet Parnas or Fruman until June 2018* contradicting @PressSec on @MediaBuzzFNC that men were at April 2018 dinner w/ @realDonaldTrump because of their relationship with Giuliani

Maggie Haberman @maggieNYT

Bolton claims in drafts of manuscript that Pompeo privately told him that there was no basis to what Giuliani said about Yovanovitch and that he questioned whether she was going after his other clients in her corruption crackdown
