I’m going to miss “but her e-mails” from him.

Oh, by the way, Mike Pompeo’s State Department issued its final report on the e-mails.

“The department has completed its administrative review.” “It involved thousands of person-hours of review and investigative effort, including gathering Statements from hundreds of past and present employees.”

“There was no persuasive evidence of systemic, deliberate mishandling of classified information.”

Can we redo the election?

I don't know why this is news considering both Trump and Mulvaney already copped to this on tape, but evidently today's closed door testimony was pretty explosive.

That latest poll (believe it was CNN?) shows 88% R's saying impeachment is simply the D's "out to get" the grabber. And 90% of them approve of his job performance to date.

I'm wondering what is the % of self identifying (or just registered) R's there are in the electorate?? Is it still around 40%? If so, that means that the 36% still are waiting for him to shoot somebody, and then they could say "he had it coming to him/her".

It’s news because the top U.S. diplomat in Ukraine, the guy who was in the text chain calling it “crazy,” drew a direct line to Trump and quid pro quo. Guy’s name is Bill Taylor, and I wouldn’t be at all surprised if he is one of the two whistleblowers.

William B. Taylor tapped in June by Secretary of State Michael R. Pompeo to come out of retirement to lead the U.S. Embassy in Ukraine.
I love how Trump and his sycophant co-criminals always find a way to bungle their corruption. Thank god there are some officials left who have scruples.

I'm just waiting for Carlson or Hannity to confirm this decades long public servant is a pawn of the "deep state".

Vietnam vet who had previously been tapped by Dubya to serve State in Ukraine and was brought out of retirement by Trump's pal Pompeo to go back after they spiked Yovanovich.

Mind you, we've seen the Republican machine completely shoot a deuce on Vietnam vets before (see DubDub squealing SWIFT BOAT VETS!) in service of a draft dodging POTUS, but Taylor seems plenty credible and only corroborates what Trump and Mulvaney already copped to in public.

Trump says McConnell told him his call to Ukraine was innocent. McConnell denies that the discussion happened.

Looks like we found the line

CNN poll:

Biden - 34%
Warren - 19%
Sanders - 16%
Buttigieg - 6%
Harris - 6%
Klobuchar - 3%
O’Rourke - 3%

This poll has Biden higher than the others. Most significant, it’s the 3rd poll with Klobuchar at 3% or more. A 4th poll at 3% and she qualifies for the next debate.

I personally like her, but it would keep the debate field at 9, and that number needs to go down.

I'm not watching, but it seems they should be getting close to cutting it off at 5. Honestly, outside of Biden, Sanders and Warren, the rest seem to be quixotic bids. I still can't fathom how a guy who can't get elected in his own state is polling at 3% and has any national support whatsoever.
