Live Thread - Impeachment Inquiry Hearings 11/21/2019
PBS ^ | November 21, 2019

Posted on 11/21/2019 6:00:09 AM PST by maggief

Fiona Hill, former National Security Council senior director for Europe and Russia, will testify before the House Intelligence Committee on Thursday, Nov. 21, in the impeachment probe into President Donald Trump. Hill told lawmakers in closed-door testimony last month that then-national security adviser John Bolton expressed concerns that the Trump administration was trying to pressure Ukrainian officials. The focus of the impeachment inquiry is a July 25 phone call in which Trump asked Ukraine's president to investigate 2020 presidential candidate Joe Biden.

Makes you wonder how this can ever be corrected. And I would imagine that each department has plenty of employees with the same outlook. I can’t even begin to imagine how this can be dismantled and reassembled properly.

If I am hearing correctly, Fiona, a coal miner’s daughter who went to Harvard, is in charge of coordinating foreign policy for about half of planet Earth.
That’s just for starters. We are also exhorted by her to trust whatever she says about Russia because it’s “beyond dispute,” but classified. Like climate change, we have to take it on faith.
And her ancestors fought alongside American soldiers. (Like Benedict Arnold, who fought alongside George Washington.)
Aaaand...she clearly thinks POTUS is a fool, but it’s the Russians who are trying to delegitimize the presidency.

“I think the whole problem here is that Rudy was a loose cannon.”

Something I’ve said from Day One.

And I’m sitting here reading comments, and deciding which ones have merit & which ones are pure flatulence. Your Rudy “is a loose cannon” comment qualifies for the latter since you offered no details. Thanks, and stick with stocks that pay a dividend!

That perception has been swallowed by those wanting to be critical of Rudy. The press preys on the gullible and turns them against the President.

Yep!! Their strategy is to make Trump look like a buffoon and mentally challenged’s all about 2020! Drive it deep into the gullible sheeple conscience that trump is incompetent, incoherent, no nothing US policy aficionado, dangerous, etc. so when 2020 comes around the independent voters will be scared schittless casting a vote for the “orange man bad” for prez!

“All of these guys have gigantic egos.”

Holmes’ ego is off the charts. He is making the very most of his 15 minutes of fame. His entire, long-winded, and vacuous opening statement just SCREAMED “Look at me! Me! Me! ME!!!”

And it finally almost gets mentioned... Recording (yes, even taking notes) of a private call of the President is likely espionage. This is going to get good at some point later today.

She took a jab at republicans on the committee. She’s denying Ukraine interfered in 2016>>>>>>>>>>>>>

I am sure the egg is already on Hill’s face, Christopher Steele used Ukrainian sources with Russian “connections” to fabricate the Steele Dossier as paid employees of Hillary Clinton.Why do you think Nellie Ohr had a Ham radio at her residence for unsupervised back-channel comms with Russia and the Ukraine while working for Fusinb GPS, an opposition research ( in this case espionage) contractor.She fed her stuff to her corrupt husband Bruce Ohr at DOJ. Hill says there is no indication that the Ukrainians interfered with US election when in fact the whole Mueller Investigation was actually started to cover the Ukrainian connection up.Rudy was sent over to get to the bottom of it which has driven the Dems into paroxysms of Trump Derangement Syndrome, because the President actually has the temerity not to sit back and just take it? Buahahahahaha!

Hill is actually a cover up of what actually happened, and she is helping the Dems set up a shield for the coming IG report on the DOJ and the bogus FISA Court Search warrant application, and a sheild the future action of Deputy AG Durham.

And they always have to give a synopsis of their growing up in life.

Coal mining village to Harvard after a brief student exchange in Russia. Methinks she left out something...such as being handpicked by an intelligence agency and groomed to coordinate foreign policy for half the planet.

Good observation.

That you can cope with them is to be commended.

“But EVERY SINGLE ONE of these state departments employees come across as smug, self-important and narcissistic.”

It’s because they are.

“”””””’Most people who are not clinicians and insist or allow themselves to be addressed as “Doctor” are tools. “””””””

I had a neighbor like that. He had a doctorate in one of those areas that really meant you just went to school for many years to learn about something that doesn’t really matter to anyone.

He always want be called doctor. Every chance I got I would say Hi JIMMY!!!!!!!! just to piss him off.

Holmes, if I understand the scenario correctly, is a NOTE TAKER! A Note Taker! Not a professional diplomat. But to hear him speak, he is the equal of the secretary of State!

All of these “witnesses” sound like they are much more than their job descriptions.
