The White House is launching a new effort to slow the speeding Democratic impeachment push, but its noncooperation strategy is being constantly thwarted by a daily stream of explosive secrets being spilled behind closed doors on Capitol Hill.
Current and former officials are painting an ever more damning picture of a wider than originally perceived scheme by President Donald Trump and his crew to pressure Ukraine that they warned could amount to a trampling of US law.
Vice President Mike Pence launched a new effort Tuesday to bolster White House hopes of stalling the House inquiry long enough for Trump to turn public opinion against it. He refused to turn over documents related to Trump's now notorious call with the President of Ukraine on July 25.

CNN article is a big burst of nothing...
Who cares what Schifty leaks!!!
“Explosive secrets” O.K, who farted?
if this was true...theyd be having wall to wall live coverage on all 3 nets and cable...they jumped too soon and now are stuck. Trump releasing that call screwed up the whole narrative...
Looks that way.
“If its explosive why dont Democrats want to hold a formal impeachment vote?”
BINGO! This doesn’t pass the laugh test. If this was a slam dunk a vote would be taken and the Democrats would put all their cards on table.
“Explosive secrets” = Silent but deadly. Wife not amused.
Yet, the hold on aid to Ukriane WAS NOT pressuring them into investigating Burisma and Hunter Biden’s links with it. That Ukraine was already doing before the phone conversation between Bush and the elected leader of Ukraine.
Yes, there was a general hold on the aid to Ukriane. The White House itself, irrespective of the State Department, wanted to do its own review of Ukraine’s record on corruption, including what the incoming Ukraine administration may think on the subject.
Given that a U.S. Vice President may have exercised corrupt influence on the prior Ukraine administration, how could THAT topic NOT be part of the discussion?
The Dims have it bass ackwards on “high crimes and misdemeanors”.
President Trump must be on Double Secret Probation by now /Animal House>
The only thing explosive is the constant release of methane coming from these clowns.
EPA should shut the whole thing down as a violation of the Clean Air Act.
This is part of their Hail HILLARY play.........................
THIS is CNN............................
Didn’t O’Keefe just out the entire network as frauds?
I guess CNN didn’t get the memo.
I hear the crap that “reporter” (read: propagandist) uses and I have to ask. What explosive revelations? What scheme to pressure Ukraine? The only person who pressured Ukraine is literally Quid Pro Joe.
It took me nearly 5 minutes to stop laughing at that one...
