RussianPotato: RonRon893: RussianPotato: Official Trump hats from the official Trump store are all made in America.  I should know, I got a bunch of them.

Ooooh ohhhh...
Can you spread a few around? They're great for getting the biggest turdclumps out of the cat's litter box!

This is America.  You can buy your own hats and do whatever you wish with them.


Bbbbut... I'm not in America! Come on, be a pal... It's like having a little shovel, storage compartment and sieve all in one handy device! You can surely spare a couple! I'll pay postage!

Looks like Bolton is going for the "Listen I would've testified but that would have just been a glimpse of this idiots farked up state of mind"

Welp. Looks like I won't be voting for Mr. Trump this fall.

No, he just saw more money in writing a salacious tell-all than testifying before the House.

They're all grifters. Every last one of them.

Farkers have gone off the rails.  Look, people, take a deep breath and think about how silly all of this looks.  Do you honestly think that Donald Trump would as a foreign nation to assist him in a presidential election!?  Only a deranged demagogue who would put himself over county would even consider it.  Does that sound like Trump?  And be honest.

Of course they do. They're the best selling item.

NeoCortex42: SolderGlob: NeoCortex42: SolderGlob: Alley Rat: bluejeansonfire: This isn't worthy of the newsflash tag. Not even the news tag.

You can't "scandal" this asshole into submission or resignation. It's another "add it to the pile" laundry list of shiat that would get any other president sacked, but because we operate this country on the honor system apparently, we lack the tools to deal with someone who shamelessly breaks the law and taunts us while doing so.

Blame the Senate Republicans (especially Moscow Mitch), who refused to even pretend to do his damn job, thereby giving him the green light to do whatever the fark he wants.

Hell isn't nice enough for them.

The Democrats share blame in this. They could have subpoenaed Bolton, Trump, Barr, or Pompeo, but they chose to play a game with the GOP Senate instead. After they realized that the GOP wasn't going to play the game by the rules the Dems should have gone back to the House and and gone nuts on subpoenas and lawsuits. Instead they tucked their tail between their legs and whimpered out "vote" as they scurried away back to the House.

The reason they chose not to go that route is because they would be waiting on those subpoenas to be litigated until well after the election.

Probably, but that shouldn't matter. They shouldn't stop seeking justice because it's too inconvenient, or might take too long. These people have information that is vital to the choices that most American's are going to make in November, they should pursue it and not stop. You know damn well that the GOP wouldn't let lawsuits stop them from their political investigations, why should Democrats stop in their criminal investigations.

They didn't stop seeking justice. They made a choice on having the impeachment this year or effectively not having an impeachment.  If every major witness would be slow-walked until after the election, how does that help voters before the election?


Any additional information they could make public always helps. And that's what they should be fighting for, more information. Instead we're stuck with waiting on rulings from old cases, as well as others to share what they witnessed in their tenure with the administration. 

Unless they think SCOTUS is going to grant the release of Trump's taxes, and that the taxes are going to be enough to dethrone Trump, then I don't really think they have a solid plan to fight this amount of corruption.

John Bolton: "Had Democratic impeachment advocates not been so obsessed with their Ukraine blitzkrieg in 2019, had they taken the time to inquire more systematically about Trump's behavior across his entire foreign policy, the impeachment outcome might well have been different. "


Because, when this is all over, we can clearly blame Democratic shortsightedness, and not any particular mustache-wearing war weasel who knew all of this stuff but wouldn't testify.

As indeed Bolton confirms in his book.

We sent PPE and veniltators to China. Remember the meat packing companies saying there was a terrible shortage of meat? We sent thousands of tons of meat to China just recently. Who says China didn't take the bribe?

Also, this makes him trying to get rid of protections for publishers very interesting. Knowing how Bolton's big reveal has turned out already and will be in the future.
 
2020-06-17 5:01:15 PM  
So Trump has colluded with Russia, Ukraine and China to help him win election?  How many more I wonder. Pretty sure Israel and Saudi Arabia are in the mix too.

They are readying their subpoenas now for Burisma.

And Clinton. Those emails man, going to bring her down!

Bolton managing to put the final nail in the coffin of his own reputation at the same time as Trump is definitely an Edgar Allen Poe worthy revenge ending.

Israel was confirmed about two years ago.
So, the count is currently Russia, Israel, Ukraine, and China in order of "known attempted collusion."

Some are still going to say this is all "trump derangement syndrome"

(The old use of the term, where it was supposed to describe people over-reacting to trumps behavior, not the current use to accurately describe his deteriorating mental condition)

Just because it is expected does not mean it isn't news.  For example, we all know there's a pee tape but it would be news were it released found streaming on the internet.

Honestly I hope Bolton catches charges for his complicity in all this too. fark that complaining about Ukrainian Blitzkrieg as if one treason shouldn't be enough.

'If they knew about all the other treasons I was aware of and completely silent about maybe things would've turned out differently' if a hell of a defense for that walrus looking motherfarker

I believe Bolton said he would testify in the Senate (if subpoenaed?), but the Republican traitors in the Senate shut that down real fast. Wonder if they knew how bad it would be if Bolton testified?
