While the Senate debated the rules for the upcoming Senate Trial that will determine if the now Impeached President Donald Trump should be removed from office, the President was in Davos, Switzerland meeting with world leaders.

Being on foreign soil did not hinder the tweeting/retweeting. Between *Tuesday and Wednesday the President has tweeted 12 times and retweeted 90 times.

*Time zones are real*

Within the first hour of the Senate Impeachment Trial the President tweeted in all caps.

He isn’t referring to the testimony transcripts of witnesses that expressed concern over his asking the Ukraine government to investigate a political rival and his son in exchange for a White House meeting and military aid; he is referring to the two Memorandums of the two calls he had with Ukraine President Zelensky. Neither the April 21st call or the July 25th call is a transcript they are both Memorandums.

To review witness testimony @ Just Security.

It’s a campaign ad.

On Tuesday the President addressed the World Economic Forum.

In the clip he blasts the Federal Reserve for raising interest rates to fast and not lowering them fast enough. He also praises negative interest rates, sort of.

There are more clips @SquawkCNBC but you get the idea, it’s all about how great he is.

On December 18th, 2019 the President was Impeached in the House. The Democratic Senators, and House Impeachment Managers did demand to hear testimony from key witnesses to determine if the Impeachable offenses committed by President Trump are enough to warrant his removal from Office.

Jenna Ellis is a Senior Legal Adviser to the Trump Team and an attorney for President Trump according to her Twitter Bio.

Ellis was referring to this tweet in her tweet that the President commented on.

From the Politico article published on Tuesday.

House Intelligence Chairman Adam Schiff appears to have mischaracterized a text message exchange between two players in the Ukraine saga, according to documents obtained by POLITICO — a possible error the GOP will likely criticize asanother example of the Democrats’ rushed effort to impeach President Donald Trump.

The issue arose when Schiff (D-Calif.) sent a letter to House Judiciary Chairman Jerry Nadler (D-N.Y.) last week summarizing a trove of evidence from Lev Parnas, an indicted former associate of Trump’s personal attorney Rudy Giuliani. In one section of the letter, Schiff claims that Parnas “continued to try to arrange a meeting with President Zelensky,” citing a specific text message exchange where Parnas tells Giuliani: “trying to get us mr Z.” The remainder of the exchange — which was attached to Schiff’s letter — was redacted.

The apparent mischaracterization, however, does not undercut Democrats’ argument that Trump withheld critical military aid to Ukraine as a way to pressure Zelenksy into opening up investigations into the Bidens, including Joe Biden’s son Hunter, who was once a board member on Burisma, a Ukrainian natural gas company.

It’s a GIF not a video clip.

Nobody has voted yet in the Democratic Presidential Primary. The first vote will be held on Feb. 3rd in Iowa.

This is the second time the President has without evidence suggested the Democratic Primary is rigged against Senator from Vermont Bernie Sanders in just 5 days.

It’s the Senate’s job to decide if the President needs removed because of the Impeachable conducted found during the House Impeachment Inquiry.

It’s not about cleaning up the mess from the House, the House proved through hours of testimony and documents they were able to obtain that President Trump held up military aid that was approved by a bipartisan Congress and approved by the Department of Defense to be sent to Ukraine. He also denied a newly elected Ukrainian President a White House meeting Both of those things were done until that newly elected President announced an investigation into a political rival.

The aid was released without the announcement or investigation by Ukraine, the reason for that, isn’t because it wasn’t asked for, the President got caught, in order to cover-up the scandal, the President and his team released the funds. The sought after Oval Office meeting has yet to occur.

Former Vice President Joe Biden did not confess to a quid pro quo, while VP, Biden with the support of both Democrats and Republicans in Congress held up a loan until they fired a corrupt Ukrainian General Prosecutor who was not investigating corruption in that country.

To learn more about Trump/Ukraine and the U.S.’s relationship with that country, @ Just Security has published hundreds of documents and testimony released to the public.

Other News.

Prior to departing Switzerland the President held a press conference in where he downplays injuries to U.S. troops, laments being upstaged by a teen climate activist, and whines that radio show host and Fox News show host Sean Hannity and radio host Rush “Rush Bo” Limbaugh have not received Pulitzer Prizes for their coverage of President Trump.

“She beat me out on Time Magazine.”

The President also explained that “Honestly, we have all the material, they don’t have the material,” regarding the documents requested by the House, via subpoena, that the White House refused to produced. Hence why he was charged and Impeached for Obstructing Congress.

It’s unlikely the post will be updated today. I have more adulting to do today.

This is an Open Thread.
