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.

“And you would replace Rudy with whom? Or do you just want him to CHANGE?”
Are you a Democrat? Because Democrats revel in non sequiturs. I said NOTHING about replacing Rudy. I said he needs to put a damper on his theatrics.
All this “overhearing” conversions is total bullshit. That is cover, for CIA, FBI, NSA STILL spying on Trump, most likely this time(s) NOT EVEN getting a FISA. The deal is, go testify but protect the Coup leaders, feeding you illegal,and doctored data. They need to get the data into the hearings but can never detail how they got their hands on it...
Wall-ASS just said Censure... that is funny.
The goal of the Democrats is to neutralize the power of the executive office under Trump.
Sondland said the call happened as described. I believe it was 7AM EST
None of these foreign service people said a peep when the Biden's were participating in Ukraine corruption. But they're shocked at Trump and Zelensky, who are trying to clean it up.
I think Rudy is playing a part and he is playing it exceedingly well. Remember this is the guy who took on the mob and won, he is also the one who held NYC together on and after 9-11. Getting old does not mean you suddenly become incompetent.
I want everyone to remember that after Rudy left politics he opened a cyber security company. Now think about that for a few minutes.
The term “loose cannon” predates that idiot Garamendi by generations. I didn’t know that by using it one automatically “parrots” anything he says.
I don’t know how many times I have to say this, but the instant case is NOT a criminal case, nor is it a civil case, nor is it any kind of LEGAL case; it is a case to sway public opinion and affect the 2020 election. So, it is about optics, not the law. The Rats may try to cloak the proceedings in some sore of legal mantle, but at the end of the day it is about public persuasion.
what brand cell phone was each person using?
= = =
And they been ‘cleaned’ by NSA?
“So Rudy is a hyperventilating blowhard?”
On TV? He certainly is.
Wall-ASS just said Censure... that is funny.””””””
They know they have nothing. And IF they get him impeached President Trump will take a flamethrower to them in the Senate trial.
I’m 66 and rise at 4;4:30. And I understand Trump doesn’t sleep much. 5:00 is completely believable.
Rudy is a good lawyer, but he IS a loose cannon. My God, just watch him on TV. He waves papers about like hes fanning the devil, and literally spits when he gets excited (which is pretty much a constant with him). His optics are TERRIBLE! The best lawyers are the ones you never see and never hear from.You contradicted yourself and you need to look up the meaning of "a loose cannon".
“The witnesses ...their demeanor and thinly disguised self-importance are a perfect example of why Trump got elected to come up with new ideas antithetical to the conventional wisdom of ‘unelected career bureaucrats!........unelected career officials are seen as the most effective way to sabotage and stymie Trumps agenda.”....
There are many who live to be disgruntled by rudy over some sin he is alleged to have committed long ago. that issue is raised when it appears relevant to raising one’s self esteem by being critical.
The issue is not Really Rudy but appearing to be relevant and thus raising personal self esteem
Rudy is now and always has been a god guy in spite of the whining to the contrary from the peanut gallery
I’m 62. 5:15 am every day.
I would trust Rudy over the entire membership of Congress any day of the week and twice on Sunday.
Rudy was sent by Trump in 2018 to investigate the whole Burisma scheme. He was not on a mission to make or change policy. I do wish he would have kept a lower profile, but when the press reported what he was doing he felt the need to defend his position. I have no problem with Rudy or his role other than when you appear in enemy territory (CNN, MSNBC) expect them to cut and paste, twist, do whatever it takes to bring you down.
(On TV? He certainly is)
Good to know how you feel, now please, take off your George Will bow tie and cummerbund. Were in a NYC street fight against communists and this is how we fight back.
Get used to having your sensibilities insulted, DJT & Rudy have 5 more years.
