We’ve entered day 8 of the Impeachment Inquiry.
President Donald Trump has tweeted 13 times and retweeted 3 times so far for Hump Day.
The Go Out and Vote Tweet.
Louisiana Republicans must go out and vote REPUBLICAN in your Governor’s race. A Republican will win if you can force a runoff! Early voting has started. Your 2nd Amendment, and much else, is at stake.— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) October 2, 2019
Politico reported on Tuesday that under Louisiana’s unique open-primary system, that Republicans Ralph Abraham and Eddie Rispone are running for second place “in a potential November run-off against,” current Governor Democrat John Bel Edwards.
As they note Edwards was elected in 2015, and can win outright on October 12th, by getting a majority of support from Louisiana voters.
The Fake News Tweets “No surprise” there.
I won the right to be a presidential candidate in California, in a major Court decision handed down yesterday. It was filed against me by the Radical Left Governor of that State to tremendous Media hoopla. The VICTORY, however, was barely covered by the Fake News. No surprise!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) October 2, 2019
Moot =’s Moat. He has replaced the tweet.
Now the press is trying to sell the fact that I wanted a Moat stuffed with alligators and snakes, with an electrified fence and sharp spikes on top, at our Southern Border. I may be tough on Border Security, but not that tough. The press has gone Crazy. Fake News!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) October 2, 2019
CNN: Federal judge blocks California law requiring Trump to release tax returns to appear on ballot.
USA Today: Judge temporarily blocks California law that would force President Donald Trump to release his tax returns.
Axios: Judge temporarily blocks California presidential tax returns law.
It’s worth noting these were the first three hits off how I Googled search using “judges tosses out CA tax release requirement for primaries.”
When I Googled “judge blocks CA law,” I found.
The Hill: Federal judge halts California law targeting Trump tax returns.
Local CBS Sacramento.
On September 19th, Axios reported that a federal judge in CA had issued a preliminary injunction blocking the CA tax return law.
But, But, But, it was barely mentioned.
A federal judge released an opinion late yesterday blocking a CA law requiring presidential candidates to turn over tax returns if they want to be on the primary ballot. He previously announced this tentatively from the bench (see: https://t.co/SKTnph4Ho2) this makes it official pic.twitter.com/fWnjgfOvjp— Zoe Tillman (@ZoeTillman) October 2, 2019
The New York Times reported on Tuesday evening that according to “interviews with more than a dozen White House and administration officials directly involved in the events of that week in March. They were granted anonymity to describe sensitive conversations with the president and top officials in the government,” the President in March demanded that the U.S./Mexico Border be shut down.
The border is 2,000 miles long and advisers at the time “feared the president’s edict would trap American tourists in Mexico, strand children at schools on both sides of the border and create an economic meltdown in two countries.”
The quote the President is calling fake news.
Privately, the president had often talked about fortifying a border wall with a water-filled trench, stocked with snakes or alligators, prompting aides to seek a cost estimate. He wanted the wall electrified, with spikes on top that could pierce human flesh. After publicly suggesting that soldiers shoot migrants if they threw rocks, the president backed off when his staff told him that was illegal. But later in a meeting, aides recalled, he suggested that they shoot migrants in the legs to slow them down. That’s not allowed either, they told him.The New York Times.

'Moat' (n) : 🐊 a deep wide ditch around the walls of a castle or fort that is usually filled with water
The Wall!!!! Tweet.
Massive sections of The Wall are being built at our Southern Border. It is going up rapidly, and built to the highest standards and specifications of the Border Patrol experts. It is actually an amazing structure! Our U.S. Military is doing a GREAT job.— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) October 2, 2019
Customs and Border Protection has provided data of September 30: no miles of wall had been built in places where barriers didn't exist before. Sixty-nine miles of barriers had been built in place of "dilapidated or outdated" existing barriers. pic.twitter.com/ecPC8Tokwg— Daniel Dale (@ddale8) October 2, 2019
The Impeachment Inquiry Tweets.
Congressman Adam Schiff should resign for the Crime of, after reading a transcript of my conversation with the President of Ukraine (it was perfect), fraudulently fabricating a statement of the President of the United States and reading it to Congress, as though mine! He is sick!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) October 2, 2019
If “fraudulently fabricating a statement,” is worth resignation how come the President hasn’t resigned?
All the Do Nothing Democrats are focused on is Impeaching the President for having a very good conversation with the Ukrainian President. I knew that many people were listening, even have a transcript. They have been at this “stuff” from the day I got elected. Bad for Country!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) October 2, 2019
The mock-up call was released by the White House. It’s not a full transcript of the call, it’s a rough idea.
In the mock-up the President of Ukraine says, “we are almost ready to buy more Javelins from the United States for defense purposes.”
In the mock-up the President of the U.S. says, “I would like you to do us a favor though.”
As a reminder the rough idea of the telephone call was released by the White House.
“Nancy Pelosi and the Democrats haven’t met the standards of impeachment. They have to be very careful here.” Jeanne Zaino. @FoxNews— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) October 2, 2019
That’s how come this is called an impeachment inquiry, not an actual impeachment, yet.
IMO they don’t have to meet the impeachment standard, President Trump himself, has based on his attempt to Obstruct the Mueller Investigation which is detailed in Volume 2 of the Mueller Report.
He again met that impeachable standard by demanding a foreign country in return for our continued military support investigate his politic rival former Vice President Joe Biden, which is detailed in his tweets, and the mock-up phone call.
All of this impeachment nonsense, which is going nowhere, is driving the Stock Market, and your 401K’s, down. But that is exactly what the Democrats want to do. They are willing to hurt the Country, with only the 2020 Election in mind!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) October 2, 2019
How silly of us to believe that the President would you know attempt to threaten something of value “401K’s” in exchange for something he wants of value.
Yep. No quid pro quo to be found at all…..
The Live Tweets during the Speaker of the House and House Intelligence Committee Chairman Presser tweets.
Nancy Pelosi just said that she is interested in lowering prescription drug prices & working on the desperately needed USMCA. She is incapable of working on either. It is just camouflage for trying to win an election through impeachment. The Do Nothing Democrats are stuck in mud!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) October 2, 2019
Democrats are trying to undo the Election regardless of FACTS! pic.twitter.com/cQ3B1bGD4L— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) October 2, 2019
Adam Schiff should only be so lucky to have the brains, honor and strength of Secretary of State Mike Pompeo. For a lowlife like Schiff, who completely fabricated my words and read them to Congress as though they were said by me, to demean a First in Class at West Point, is SAD!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) October 2, 2019
The Do Nothing Democrats should be focused on building up our Country, not wasting everyone’s time and energy on BULLSHIT, which is what they have been doing ever since I got overwhelmingly elected in 2016, 223-306. Get a better candidate this time, you’ll need it!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) October 2, 2019
The President tweeted that shortly before meeting with the President of Finland, Sauli Niinistö.
through impeachment/ Election regardless of FACTS! [this covers two of his tweets]
Impeachment is how our founders tried to protect us, “we the people,” from corrupt Presidents. An inquiry into whether or not the President has in fact committed impeachable offenses is required by the House. His phone call, the Whistleblower complaint, the attempted obstruction of justice detailed in volume 2 of the Mueller report. All meet the standard to launch an impeachment inquiry.
Secretary of State Mike Pompeo
As Snip Bytes reported on Tuesday, Pompeo sent the Committees conducting the investigation under the umbrella of House Impeachment Inquiry, a letter that said, they would not allow those former and current State Department officials to be questioned.
The Wall Street Journal was the first to report that Pompeo was on the call between President Trump and President Zelensky.
He confirmed for reporters that he was on the call, on Wednesday.
"I was on the phone call."— The New York Times (@nytimes) October 2, 2019

During an interview with Martha Raddatz he dodged questions regarding the Ukrainian call.
Now we know Mike Pompeo was listening into Trump's Ukraine extortion call (per WSJ).— Arlen Parsa (@arlenparsa) September 30, 2019
Weirdly, he pretended not to know what Trump said on the Ukraine call when he was asked about it directly on TV a week ago, basically lying to @MarthaRaddatz.pic.twitter.com/j0Zqb6cBDo
Full presser Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi, and House Intelligence Chairman Adam Schiff.
For thoughts on the President suggesting a “civil war” if he were impeached @ the News Blender.
This post will be updated within reason.
