You fiddle one Commonwealth grants scheme, you'll fiddle them all...
#Budget2020 | Businesses have been hoping for an amnesty scheme under customs as well.
Americans know about Trump's Ukrainescheme because people with a sense of duty were willing to step forward and speak out. People like Ambassadors Yovanovitch and Taylor, Lt. Col. Vindman, Dr. Hill. They were willing to risk their careers. Can Members of Congress do the same?
Mr. Parnas’ public interviews and documents shed light on the origins and key players in Trump's scheme. His information, Bolton's offer to testify, and the GAO's finding of Trump's illegality all underscore the need for a fair trial. The American people deserve all the facts.
1. Ambitious neurotic girl marries sex predator 2. Becomes procurer and coverup artist for his misdeeds 3. Hopes he will propel her to the White House 4. Scheme fails and so she becomes an angry, bitter hag. Is this a fair summary of the plot?
The famous question from the Watergate hearings was, "What did the President know, and when did he know it?" We don't have to ask that of President Trump. He knew everything, and from the beginning. How? President Trump was the central player in this corrupt scheme.
Sondland confirms that the Ukrainescheme was a quid pro quo: the conditioning of official acts, a WH meeting and military aid, for something of great value to the president. It goes right to the heart of the issue of bribery, and other potential high crimes and misdemeanors.
My Republican colleagues suggest that since Trump's Ukrainescheme failed, since someone blew the whistle and the aid was ultimately released, that it doesn’t really matter if he tried to bribe a foreign power with military aid. The Constitution says otherwise.
As additional documents are revealed, and new information about Trump’s abuse of power comes to light, we learn more and more about the extent of his cover-up. Senators must ensure they see these and other documents related to the President’s scheme. A fair trial requires it.
