No surprise.

Trump was absolutely right.

If he were to shoot someone in the middle of 5th Avenue, there would be no consequences.

Because Trumplicans would fall all over themselves to defend him and explain it away.

What will happen if they don't introduce articles of impeachment..

It wouldn't be a bad plan the info is out in the public ,it would deny the Senate any chance to try to make it more about the Bidens then about Trump

And Trump couldn't play the victim on the campaign Trail.. but rather have to answer other question like Jim said if you did nothing wrong why didn't you cooperate with the inquiry. As the Republicans expected biden too ( still dont see how that was relevant besides trying to get the dirt Trump couldn't from Ukraine

i don’t like it, but im certain
she’s not the only politician to use a tv spot to fundraise. do you only have a problem when republicans do it in foxnews? kamela harris was in tv this week, saying her fundraising needed a boost. interesting that didn’t bother you.

I think it would be a shrewd move to not impeach, get the facts out there, let the people decide. But i’d be stunned if they did that. The progressive wing wants impeachment, i cant see they’d settle for anything less, and they are the democratic party right now. The moderates barely exist. Unless you consider Pelosi a moderate, right now she’s in the middle over there.

Written by Art Buchwald in 1973, please modify to suit yourself

As a public service, I am printing instant responses for loyal Nixonites when they are attacked at a party. Please cut it out and carry it in your pocket.

1. Everyone does it.

2. What about Chappaquiddick?

3. A President can’t keep track of everything his staff does.

4. The press is blowing the whole thing up.

5. Whatever Nixon did was for national security.

6. The Democrats are sore because they lost the election.

7. Are you going to believe a rat like John Dean or the president of the United States?

8. Wait till all the facts come out.

9. What about Chappaquiddick?

10. If you impeach Nixon, you get Agnew.

11. The only thing wrong with Watergate is they got caught.

12. What about Daniel Ellsberg stealing the Pentagon Papers?

13. It happens in Europe all the time.

14. People would be against Nixon no matter what he did.

15. I’d rather have a crook in the White House than a fool.

16. LBJ used to read FBI reports every night.

17. What’s the big deal about finding out what your opposition is up to?

18. The president was too busy running the country to know what was going on.

19. What about Chappaquiddick?

20. People that live in glass houses shouldn’t throw stones.

21. McGovern would have lost anyway.

22. Maybe the Committee for the Re-Election of the President went a little too far, but they were just a bunch of eager kids.

23. I’m not for breaking the law, but sometimes you have to do it to save the country.

24. Nixon made a mistake. He’s only human.

25. Do you realize what Watergate is doing to the dollar abroad?

26. What about Harry Truman and the deep freeze scandal?

27. Franklin D. Roosevelt did a lot of worse things.

28. I’m sick and tired of hearing about Watergate and so is everyone else.

29. This thing should be tried in the courts and not on TV.

30. When Nixon gives his explanation of what happened there are going to be a lot of people in this country with egg on their faces.

31. My country right or wrong.

32. What about Chappaquiddick?

33. I think the people who make all this fuss about Watergate should be shot.

34. If the Democrats had the money they would have done the same thing.

35. I never did trust Haldeman and Ehrlichman.

36. If you say one more word about Watergate I’ll punch you in the nose.

A. If the person is bigger than you: “If you say one more word about Watergate, I’m leaving this house.”

B. If it’s your own house and the person is bigger than you: “What about Chappaquiddick?”

This column was originally published in The Los Angeles Times on July 12, 1973.

"I would like you to do us a favor though"
Donald Trump

"Was there a quid pro quo?.....The answer is yes"
Ambassador Gordon Sondland

"Get over it"
Acting Chief of Staff Mick Mulvaney

"Everyone was in the loop.....It was no secret."
Ambassador Gordon Sondland

Indicted Giuliani associate Lev Parnas is willing to tell Congress about meetings Devin Nunes—the top Republican on the House Intelligence Committee—had in Vienna last year with a former Ukrainian prosecutor to discuss digging up dirt on Joe Biden.

Parnas’s lawyer says Parnas is also willing to talk about a series of meetings he took part in at the Trump International Hotel in DC about Ukraine. claims he was part of a “team” which met several times a week in a private room on the second floor of the Trump Hotel.

Not insignificant to note that Joe diGenova and Victoria Toensing are Firtash's lawyers at this moment for the extradition process from Austria to the US?

"Congressional records show Nunes traveled to Europe from Nov. 30 to Dec. 3, 2018. Three of his aides—Harvey, Scott Glabe, and George Pappas—traveled with him, per the records. U.S. government funds paid for the group’s four-day trip, which cost just over $63,000. "

Trump on Fox aka state Tv
Fox asked
Trump if he was sure about his claim that the Democratic National Committee had given an important computer server that was hacked in 2016 to Ukraine (they had not), Trump said, providing no evidence. A 45min rant on fox .. why would he offer only to show up fox ,and no other network
