Before we get to the story that triggered our President. As a reminder.

New York Times reporter and CNN analyst Maggie Haberman.

Wednesday the Washington Post reported that President Trump wanted Attorney General William Barr to hold a press conference “declaring that the commander in chief had broken no laws during a phone call in which he pressed his Ukrainian counterpart to investigate a political rival, though Barr ultimately declined to do so, people familiar with the matter said.”

From the article:

People close to the administration say Barr and Trump remain on good terms. A senior administration official said Trump praised the attorney general publicly and privately Wednesday, and deputy White House press secretary Hogan Gidley said in a statement: “The President has nothing but respect for AG Barr and greatly appreciates the work he’s done on behalf of the country — and no amount of shady sources with clear intent to divide, smear, and slander will change that.”

The Washington Post.

The New York Times reported that according to a person that was told, who spoke to them, “In the days after the reconstructed transcript was released to the public, the White House told the Justice Department of Mr. Trump’s desire for Mr. Barr to appear publicly.”

From the article:

The president wanted Mr. Barr to personally deliver the message to the news media that Mr. Trump had done nothing wrong, much as he did in a news conference he held shortly before the release of the report by Robert S. Mueller III, the special counsel who investigated Russia’s interference in the 2016 elections, according to a person with knowledge of the events

The New York Times.

The Wall Street Journal reported that according to an Administration Official, the request of Barr to publicly announce that President Trump hadn’t broken any laws during the phone call came shortly after the White House made public the memo of the call between President Trump and Ukraine President Zelensky, but as noted by both the Post and the Times, Barr declined.

From the article:

Mr. Trump’s request that his attorney general publicly exonerate him, earlier reported by the Washington Post, represented an extension of a willingness throughout his presidency to pressure the Justice Department to defend and support him.

[they note]

It couldn’t immediately be determined how hard Mr. Trump pressed for a news conference or why Mr. Barr declined to hold one. A department spokeswoman declined to comment.

The Wall Street Journal.

ABC News reported “The story was first reported by the Washington Post and multiple sources familiar with the matter confirmed it to ABC News.”

They also report that Barr declined to hold the presser according to sources who spoke to ABC News.

From the article:

It was not immediately clear why Barr declined to hold a news conference, but ABC News has previously reported that the attorney general was irritated Trump brought him up on the call in tandem with his personal attorney Rudy Giuliani.

While Barr did not hold a press conference, the Justice Department did issue a statement soon after the release of the initial whistleblower complaint about the president’s call with Zelenskiy. In the statement, a Justice Department spokeswoman said the criminal division had reviewed the official record of the conversation and determined that “there was no campaign finance violation and that no further action was warranted.”

ABC News.

This is hardly the first time the President has requested, wanted, or demanded an official speak out on his behalf, as the News Blender reported in April of last year, the President pressed then-FBI Director James Comey to publicly announce that President Trump was not under investigation. Comey also declined instead Comey passed on the request to the Attorney General.

The Impeachment Inquiry Tweets.

Read the Memorandum!

Memorandum.

Reminder Hunter Biden is a private citizen, what he did to get paid, is not our business. If President Trump and R’s as a whole suspect the money was criminally obtained or in fact used in crimes, they have official channels to use in order to discover if a crime in fact was committed. President Trump did not use official channels to pressure Ukraine to investigate.

Apparently the explainer forget to explain that the public hearings that House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff announced on Wednesday.

Is not part of a “trial” as the trial happens in the Senate. The public hearings are to inform the public of the impeachable, if any, offenses our President may have committed.

The hearings are also designed to give the whole of Congress the evidence that will be used to determine the Articles of Impeachment, if passed, those charges will move to the Senate for the actual trial.

The Whistleblower. 

“The Other Side”

It’s an old favorite of President Trump for example May 2019.

On Wednesday FOX NEWS reported that attorney for the whistleblower Mark Zaid tweeted “conspicuously in January 2017 that a “coup has started” and that “impeachment will follow ultimately.””

Law & Crime reached out to Zaid for comment on his past tweets.

In the time since that tweet was posted, which was referring to lawyers serving as the force of good to prevent this president from doing harm to our democracy, I’ve probably represented more Republicans, including White House officials, than Democrats.

This is nothing more than the continuing partisan deflection to desperately avoid discussing the substance of my client’s whistleblower complaint.
