QUID PRO QUO 4. Trump froze military assistance until Zelensky opened an investigation of the Bidens. Zelensky was feeling the pressure and seemed ready to do this deal. But the the whistleblower acted first, forcing Trump to resume military assistance. 5/

QUID PRO QUO 3. Trump would give Zelensky an Oval office meeting-- an extremely valuable chit in diplomacy sought by all heads of state -- if new Ukrainian government opened an investigation of the Bidens. Zelensky didn't deliver; Zelensky has never visited the White House. 4/

QUID PRO QUO 1. Corrupt Ukrainian Prosecutor General Yuri Lutsenko promised to open an investigation of the Bidens if Trump fired Yovanovitch. Trump did fire Yovanovitch. Lutsenko didn't deliver on his side of the deal. (Zelensky was elected president & then removed Lutsenko) 2/

Trump told Pence to cancel his planned trip to attend Zelensky inauguration after Zelensky refused to open an investigation of the Bidens. Another quid pro quo . @maddow  spelled it all out very clearly tonight. Watch the show when you can.

From Parnas calendar, top line across, 9/26/2019, day after Trump Zelensky meeting at UN in NY: Breakfast with Pres. Trump in NYC

So many outstanding questions as Senate heads into impeachment trial. Among them: Did Trump nix Pence’s trip to Zelensky’s inauguration because Rudy wasn’t getting the response from the new Ukrainian leader he wanted? With @AshleyRParker  @PostRoz :

Trump knew exactly what was going on’ — In a pair of bombshell interviews, indicted Giuliani associate Lev Parnas implicated Trump, Pence, and Barr in a plot to make all U.S. support for Ukraine contingent upon Pres. Zelensky announcing an investigation into the Bidens

In case you missed it: Lev Parnas went on the Rachel Maddow Show last night and hugely implicated Trump, Pence, and Barr, among others, in a plan to extort Ukrainian president Volodymyr Zelensky into announcing an investigation of Joe Biden.

Excellent catch by @BenMathisLilley  at @Slate : In this released letter, when Giuliani wrote to Zelensky, he explicitly said he represented Trump as a private individual -- not as president. So any Ukrainian favors would be for Trump, not for the US:

FATALITY: Brit Hume DROPS John Brennan for ‘mistakenly’ claiming Trump wrote Zelensky note and he just needs one word


Most relevant

Doesn’t matter what the Dems write. 4 facts will never change: -The call transcript shows no linkage -President Trump and President Zelensky both say no pressure -Ukraine didn’t know aid was held up at the time of the call -Ukraine never took any action to get aid released (1/3)

🚨This is breaking news and it’s important. New documents show: 1. Ukraine aid was held just hours after the Trump/Zelensky “do us a favor” call 2. Internal notes show Trump’s direct involvement 3. Staff knew it was wrong, kept it secret

“There are 31 House Democrats in Trump won Congressional Districts. Those Dems will have to answer to their constituents come 2020. If you look at the facts, there’s no crime, there’s no witness, there’s no evidence, there’s no victim, President Zelensky said there was....

My Republican colleagues would have the American public believe that Ambassador Marie Yovanovitch's testimony is not relevant to our impeachment inquiry. One person who thought she was relevant? President Trump, who brought her up in his July 25 call with Zelensky.

@Jim_ Jordan: You didn’t listen in on President Trump & Zelensky’s call? Taylor: I did not. Jordan: You’ve never talked with Chief of Staff Mulvaney? Taylor: I never did. Jordan: You’ve never met the President? Taylor: That’s correct. Jordan: And you’re their star witness.

My Republican colleagues may try to muddy the waters, but this fact is undisputed: On the July 25 call, Trump asked Zelensky to investigate the Bidens. There's no ambiguity about it. And Lt. Col. Vindman understood that ask as a demand.

President Trump: “I want NOTHING. I want no quid pro quo. I want Zelensky to do what he ran on.”

Let's set the record straight: Trump wasn't working to help Ukraine root out corruption. On the July 25 call, he didn't ask Zelensky about any issue related to Ukraine's oligarchs. He did ask about the Bidens. Trump's only focus was his own personal, political gain.

We now have both the April and July calls between President Trump and President Zelensky. Once again, no linkage of any kind. The WH has displayed unprecedented transparency. Meanwhile, Democrats haven’t even released all of the deposition transcripts.

Before Chairman Adam Schiff gets a chance to make up another phone call between Presidents Trump and Zelensky, @DevinNunes  just read the entire transcript aloud. 🔊Volume up:
