    A dozen House Democrats are calling for President Donald Trump’s ambassador to the European Union, Gordon Sondland, to resign in the wake of revelations about his key role in the unfolding Ukraine scandal. The calls for his ouster come as Sondland prepares to be deposed Tuesday by House committees as part of their impeachment inquiry into the president. The list includes one presidential candidate — Rep. Tim Ryan of Ohio. Sondland, a Trump political appointee, has emerged as a central player in Trump’s bid to persuade Ukraine’s new government to commit publicly to investigate corruption and the president’s political opponents....

    ... Trump appeared to have been watching TV at the White House, before leaving for a second straight day at his golf club in Sterling, Virginia. On Fox & Friends, host Ed Henry had asked radio host Mark Levin if he thought the president did anything “illegal” in the 25 July phone call with Ukrainian president Volodymyr Zelenskiy which is at the heart of impeachment proceedings. True to form, Levin reacted angrily. This seemed to please the president, who retweeted more than 20 tweets about the exchange. One referred to another Fox News anchor whose coverage of the Ukraine scandal...

    Late Wednesday evening, ABC News reported that Serhiy Leshchenko, an "advisor" to Ukrainian President Zelensky, claimed that discussing the Biden case was a precondition of him having communications with President Trump. "This issue was raised many times. I know that Ukrainian officials understood." According to ABC News, "The Trump administration’s alleged insistence that the two leaders discuss a prospective investigation into Biden, one of the president’s political opponents, casts his July 25 conversation with Zelenskiy in a new light." Except it probably doesn't. It turns out that Serhiy Leshchenko advised Zelensky's transition team in April, but is no longer an...

    Guess what? President Trump today told Ukraine's President said that a Miss Ukraine had won the Miss Universe Pageant when he owned the organization, but -- GASP! -- a Ukrainian has never won the prestigious pageant. Miss Ukraine, however, was First Runner-Up in 2011. OH THE HUGE MANATEE!! Will the Democrats take this piece of information to use against Trump during the Impeachment process? Will "Pageant Collusion" be the new 'gotcha' terminology? If Trump drowns kittens -- is that an impeachable offense? (all of the above are /SARC) ARTICLE: New York – President Donald Trump’s got jokes. Facing a Democratic...
  • Ukraine president takes political stage in dramatic fashion

    Ukraine’s new president, a comedian before he turned to statecraft, made a dramatic entrance to the political stage Monday by disbanding parliament minutes after his inauguration. Volodymyr Zelenskiy, who won 73% of the vote last month, justified his contentious decision on the grounds that the legislature, controlled by allies of the man he defeated, is riddled with self-enrichment. Elections to the Supreme Rada were scheduled for Oct. 27, which raised the prospect of Zelenskiy struggling to enact his agenda in the face of a hostile parliament over his first few months in power.
