A Federal Judge is allowing the Nick Sandman libel suit to move forward against the thoroughly disgusting Washington Post (which is no longer available at the White House!). He could now have a good chance of winning. Go Nick!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) October 30, 2019
Sandman =’s Sandmann
The Washington Post reported on Monday that a federal judge “reinstated part of a lawsuit against The Washington Post filed by the family of a Kentucky teenager that alleged the newspaper libeled the teen in its coverage of his encounter with a Native American activist at the Lincoln Memorial earlier this year.”
Judge William Bertlesman, the Judge who rejected the suit in July on “First Amendment grounds, said Monday he would allow it to go forward, but narrowed its scope from 33 published statement to three.”
The Impeachment Inquiry tweets.
Republicans are very unified and energized in our fight on the Impeachment Hoax with the Do Nothing Democrats, and now are starting to go after the Substance even more than the very infair Process because just a casual reading of the Transcript leads EVERYBODY to see that…..— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) October 30, 2019
…..the call with the Ukrainian President was a totally appropriate one. As he said, “No Pressure.” This Impeachment nonsense is just a continuation of the Witch Hunt Hoax, which has been going on since before I even got elected. Rupublicans, go with Substance and close it out!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) October 30, 2019
“infair” =’s unfair.
“It does appear it has to do with Nancy Pelosi retaining her Speakership in the next Congress. She would like that so she’s going to put it to a vote because that’s what her political left really wants.” @SteveDoocy @foxandfriends A disgraceful use of Impeachment. Will backfire!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) October 30, 2019
Yesterday’s Never Trumper witness could find NO Quid Pro Quo in the Transcript of the phone call. There were many people listening to the call. How come they (including the President of Ukraine) found NOTHING wrong with it. Witch Hunt!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) October 30, 2019
The New York Times on Tuesday night reported that according to people familiar with the testimony of Lt. Col. Alexander Vindman, the top Ukraine expert on the National Security Council told House impeachment investigators that the memo of the call between President Trump and President Zelensky of the Ukraine omitted crucial words.
According to the article Vindman had attempted to include the omitted words but those attempts failed.
From the article:
Colonel Vindman, who appeared on Capitol Hill wearing his dark blue Army dress uniform and military medals, told House impeachment investigators that he tried to change the reconstructed transcript made by the White House staff to reflect the omissions. But while some of his edits appeared to have been successful, he said, those two corrections were not made.
Colonel Vindman did not testify to a motive behind the White House editing process. But his testimony is likely to drive investigators to ask further questions about how officials handled the call, including changes to the transcript and the decision to put it into the White House’s most classified computer system — and whether those moves were meant to conceal the conversation’s most controversial aspects.The New York Times.
The article goes on to explain that the missing phrases do not change the lawmakers understanding of the call, but “Colonel Vindman’s account offered a hint to solving a mystery surrounding the conversation: what Mr. Trump’s aides left out of the transcript in places where ellipses indicated dropped words.”
The President on Tuesday as the News Blender reported begged followers and Twitter uses alike to read the “transcript,” I noted in the linked article, that the public released document is called a memorandum, I neglected to included this “caution” warning from the memorandum.
The first line of the image taken from the link says: A Memorandum of a Telephone Conversation (TELCON) is not a verbatim transcript of a discussion.
Trump has called it an "exact" transcript at least 16 times. https://t.co/A624sQDqYp— Daniel Dale (@ddale8) October 30, 2019
I decided to separate the three tweets that quote Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY).
“Precisely the same program that the Democrats are trying to Impeach President Trump for supposedly slow walking, tomorrow, right here in the Senate, they (the Dems) say they’re going to filibuster for the exact same program.” @senatemajldr Mitch McConnell. Do Nothing Democrats!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) October 30, 2019
“Our Country cannot afford for the Democrats in Congress to take a one year vacation from any productive legislation just because they would rather obsess over Impeachment. ISIS & other radical terrorists are not going to hit the pause button because Democrats won’t fund……— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) October 30, 2019
….the United States Military. Congress needs to do its work. We need to fund our Armed Forces.” @senatemajldr Mitch McConnell. The Dems are a lost cause. In 2020, we need a big, beautiful WIN (all three)! #MAGA— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) October 30, 2019
The quotes came from Senator Majority Leader Mitch McConnell who was speaking on the Senate floor. His statement comes at the 6:23 minute mark @ C-SPAN.org.
“Precisely the same program that the Democrats are trying to Impeach President Trump for supposedly slow walking, tomorrow, right here in the Senate, they (the Dems) say they’re going to filibuster for the exact same program.”
McConnell is attempting to make equal the President’s attempt to hold funding for Ukraine until Ukraine promised to investigate his political rival Joe Biden and his son Hunter Biden the same as the Democrats threatening to filibuster a funding bill which would also fund Ukraine.
The rest of the quotes are regarding the a funding bill deadline that is looming.
You can find the rest of McConnell’s statements at the link.
This post will be updated within reason.
This is an Open Thread.
I just wanted to add this at the bottom of the thread. Please everyone in CA near or around the fires be safe. Listen to the warnings.
