Judge Orders State Department To Turn Over More Trump-Ukraine Materials To House

Judge Orders State Department To Turn Over More Trump-Ukraine Materials To House


Last Friday, a federal judge issued a major
blow to the Trump administration, ordering them to go through and turn over even more
documents related to Donald Trump and his contacts with Ukraine. Now, here’s what the administration had previously
done. The state department after being ordered by
a court to turn over the documents that house Democrats were requesting ended their search
for documents on August 2nd now, I’m not saying they finished it on August 2nd I’m saying
the dates through which they look for documents ended on August 2nd even though this was back
in October, they didn’t look for anything through most of August, all of September in
the beginning of October. They didn’t want to see that. They didn’t want to hand that over, and so
they were sued and the judge on Friday said, yeah, there’s no reason why you should have
just ended the search on August 8th and instead or August 2nd excuse me. Instead, I want you to go through October
18th that’s how many documents I want the Democrats in the house of representatives
to have because that’s actually what they’re entitled to. They subpoenaed these records and by God you’re
going to turn them over. Now, part of the reason they may have set
that arbitrary August 2nd deadline for when they were searching for documents was because
that was prior to Donald Trump lifting most of the freeze on the aid to Ukraine. So if there are some kind of documents in
there explaining why Trump has now decided to lift the freeze on the aid, then that could
be very damning for the president. And that could be very helpful for the impeachment
inquiry. We do know, according to this ruling, that
there are documents in there that have communications with secretary of state, Mike Pompeo, that
have communications with Rudy Giuliani. And those are people very relevant, who’ve
already both been implicated in some of the schemes that the president was trying to pull
off allegedly. And so yeah, we need to know that. We need to know who all the major players
are. So it’s not surprising that Donald Trump’s
state department tried to withhold these documents, but it is a bit refreshing that the judge
understands that. Nope, you’re obviously trying to hide something. There was no reason to just stop your search
on August 2nd and now you’re going to hand over two and a half additional months of documents
because it’s all very relevant to the ongoing impeachment. Now, here’s the issue I have with this ruling. This happened on Friday. They’re the house or about the vote on impeachment
any day now, and then it leaves the house. So what good do these documents now do? The Democrats, they rushed it too quickly. They should not be voting on impeachment in
the house, the full floor vote to to send it to the Senate. That shouldn’t happen right now at all. It probably shouldn’t happen in January. Probably shouldn’t happen in February. I would push it the March because as this
court ruling points out, there is a heck of a lot of information that Democrats don’t
even know about yet that might be able to get a couple of Republicans to flip and vote
for impeachment.

  1. No additional information implicating tRump in additional violations of the Constitution, or providing additional evidence will change the outcome of his trial in the Senate, and almost certainly not the vote in the House. The win is that we get to see the Republicants demonstrate that they have lost all sense of ethics and responsibility to the Constitution, and then after they acquit, tRump, they get pounded on months of fresh charges. And voters get to watch the process.

  2. I am saying this first Democrats are going to fuck this impeachment up so bad, that no matter what 45 does he will get elected again. Democrats has no spine and are paid and bought. African Americans should leave the democratic party and become independents. At least then both parties would have to court for our vote.

  5. "The Long Con"

    Christmas Day, 2019
    The president calls a special press conference.
    "Ladies and gentlemen, the last several years I have been participating in an elaborate sting operation."
    He then pulls off his latex mask, revealing that, all along, he was JFK.
    Gone now is the spastic word-salad way of speaking, replaced by the familiar Boston accent.
    "Vladimir Putin, Kim Jong Il and Crown Prince MBS have all been detained, and will face trial in the United Nations courts.
    Any questions?"
    A hand shoots up.
    "Then who got his head blown off in Dallas?"
    "Oh, that was the REAL Donald Trump."

  8. Its' obvious why the Democrat leadership is rushing this through. Pelosi doesn't want to expose the real extent of domestic corruption.

    Investigating Ukraine, yeah that's pretty far from home, and can be managed. But as to Trump's other crimes? That hits to close to home. In a thorough investigation of these crimes, Democrat involvement and evidence of unethical and criminal behavior leading to both parties will likely be uncovered.

    The reason they used Schiff to conduct the impeachment inquiry rather than an independent prosecutor, is so they can control the narrative. The last thing they want, is an independent investigation that could lead into other malfeasance and criminality.
    What about Hunter Biden? While it might have nothing to do with Trump's criminality, there is definitely evidence that Joe Biden has been using his office and influence to cover for his son. If he is doing this, then what else has he been willing to do in the rest of his career? Unlike Clinton, Joe has not been smart about cleaning up behind himself.
    This view is also in evidence with "off the table" Pelosi's refusal to investigate the Bush Junta, and Barrack "looking forward" Obama's refusal to go after that regime, and the scum that crashed the economy. This goes back to Reagan. One party covering for the other in order that both parties can continue to rake in the cash and wallow at the trough.
    The only way the US can move forward is to air this dirty laundry. Only then, can we save the nation.

  10. Nothing keeps them from bringing impeachment up again, it is not a legal process but purely political and congress has the sole discretion on how it proceeds. I doubt the SC could intervene. I use doubt because who knows with the way things are now.

  12. So much for trump’s crooked Hilary talk 🤣😂🤣😂 it’s so obvious that anything he implies somebody of being or accuses any other individual of doing, he’s actually admitting to it.

    Only a humungous fucking fucking retard would believe a word crooked con artist donald says.

    Just remember too ladies and gentlemen that this is what we get when we don’t get out to vote in record numbers because we all thought we can afford to take our democracy and freedom for granted.

    Vote blue only no matter who on November 3rd, 2020 in record numbers with me (I’m a registered republican) I refuse to let trump and his family and cronies and gop lapdog enabling sycophants defeat our democracy and constitutional rights with their hate, bigotry, misogyny, racism, xenophobia, oppression and white supremacy and tyranny.

    Don’t let 2016 be a repeat. If you do then it’s the end of the America we know and love and are thankful to be a citizen of. REMEMBER THIS!!

  20. "A MAN IS JUST A MAN" you can't tell me the law enforcement agencies of the most powerful country in the 🌎 just can't lock up and remove this??? from office, but a MAN door can be kicked in by FBI, ATF on suspicion is this the ?SA or a two in one concept, protecting a MOB like run administration, who's giving 💰 to various young and upcoming politicians for silence or even the old one's who never played golf, sip DP, Caviar and stayed in fancy hotels abroad, a last chance to enjoy the spoils of being a Liar=Lawyer=Politician. Does any individual runing for office in either party, including, independents have ever truly consider the plight of the masses or just see these positions as prestige, with perks as enriching of self and creating instability for the rest. Yet we go abroad and corrupt countries, sacrificing innocent lives as away to show strength and we the masses get all sensitive and agree for WAR. Know you have a AGENT OF CHAOS that's stifling the growth of the people with all these antics. As every 4 yrs or 8 yrs we get promises that's never kept and the struggle for the POOR becomes a normal expectation, by not understanding the power of voting and to be always ready to REMOVE anyone that defrauds or step off the protocol of the system and laws written. Traitor, Treason, Bribery, wait there's more to come JAIL should be for all involved. ✌ ☝

  23. It's all fine and good that they will impeach this draft dodging COWARD, but we all know it will get no further than the Republicans who vowed to keep this idiot in office. The bad part about it is that cRump knows it and playing on all his little followers like he is the victim of a scheme to get rid of him.

  24. Hate to be a naysayer here, but I don't think we're gonna be able to get rid of him! I think there's collision somewhere in the mix and that this impeachment is intentionally setup to fail. I wish that it weren't so, but there's just too much money and too much power at stake to get a fair shake!!

  25. Trump can't speak English, but all of a sudden he speaks Latin.  When his lawyers tell him just what say to Sondland  after the whistleblower calls him out, he says "I want nothing, I want nothing, I want no quid pro quo,"  What a fucking puppet!!

  26. Republicans won't flip, they just won't. That would require integrity and they don't have any. I'm Canadian and I've been discussing the impeachment online with American GOP supporters. It amazes me that I have read the Mueller report, the congressional testimonies and watched the impeachment hearings, but not one American GOP supporter I have talked to has read any of it. I'm Canadian and I know more of the truth than most Americans. The United States is so fucked.

  30. They’ll never admit this, but no Republican will vote to convict and remove trump. They will lie and obfuscate, whatever they have to do, and trump will stay. To them, including the base, the only thing that matters is judges. From their point of view, trump is doing a great job. They’ll be out in droves in 2020.

  39. There is already more than enough evidence. There will probably be still more coming out ten years from now. At some point, Nancy Pelosi had to act. You have to accept that he really could shoot someone in midtown Manhattan with a hundred witnesses, and his cult would still vote for him. They would probably claim the New York Times and police made it up.

  40. For what it's worth… there is no double jeopardy when it comes to impeachment. Theoretically, the House can impeach AGAIN if new information comes to light (and probably why they limited the scope of the charges they are preparing to vote on).

    And simply, NO Republican is going to flip. Period.

  43. THE LAW IS ON TRUMPS SIDE! CNN & REST OF HATE MONGER NEWS FORGETS THAT THERE IS A TREATY BETWEEN THE USA & UKRAINE SIGNED INTO LAW BY CLINTON & SENATE TITLED "MUTUAL LEGAL ASSISTANCE IN CRIMINAL MATTERS". ACCORDING TO THE TREATY TRUMP WAS WELL WITHIN HIS LEGAL RIGHT TO REQUEST ASSISTANCE. SIGN IN KIEV 7/22/98 & IN SENATE 1999.The Treaty is one of a series of modern mutual legal assistance treaties being Negotiated by the United States in order to counter criminal activities more effectively. The Treaty should be an effective tool to assist in the prosecution of a wide variety of crimes, including drug trafficking offenses. The Treaty is self-executing. It provides for a broad range of cooperation in criminal matters. Mutual assistance available under the Treaty includes: taking of testimony or statements of persons; providing documents, records, and articles of evidence; serving documents; locating or identifying persons; transferring persons in custody for testimony or other purposes; executing requests for searches and seizures; assisting in proceedings related to restraint, confiscation, forfeiture of assets, restitution, and collection of fines; and any other form of assistance not prohibited by the laws of the requested state. I recommend that the Senate give early and favorable consideration to the Treaty and give its advice and consent to ratification.
    WILLIAM J. CLINTON.
    HE WAS ALSO (PER SUPREME COURT) WITHIN HIS RIGHTS TO DENY ANY WITNESSES,DOCUMENTS, OR OTHER MATERIAL SIMPLY FOR THE FACT OF FISHING WITHOUT A SPECIFIED CRIME AND PROOF OF A CRIME. SCHIFF HAD NEITHER-JUST 3 YRS OF FISHING!

  45. The House was always going to discover more and damaging information. The truth always surfaces eventually. That may not have a major effect on the impeachment of Trump (not much was going to with a pre-decided Republican majority), but it will highlight the Republicans involvement in the cover up and hopefully make us all better informed voters. History is always unkind to the betrayers of their charge.

  49. No I don’t agree. No matter what there are losses. Every day and every hour that Trump is not impeached, it is one step worse for this country and the world. I do agree, the Republicans are total idiots. They have to vote to remove him. They cannot make this about their seat or their party. This is about our country and their oath to office and on that basis he must be impeached and removed, and it must be swift. We should have impeached him two years ago. I agree it’s a good argument to wait to let Republicans catch up but I say no, enough is enough. It is already way past time to impeach that insufferable liar, crook, and traitor. Let the GOP be exposed for the lying, cheating traitors that they really are. This is their Waterloo.

Any evidence that may come to light after the impeachment should be used to go after Barr, Juliani, Pompeo, Mulvaney et al.
