    Obstruction is a crime in and of itself.
    You may not like that there is an investigation but you get a fucking lawyer and follow the rules.
    Just saying no, I don't want to play is not how it works.
    That's not how any of this works.

    Is a "Wirch Hunt" a legal concept I'm not aware of? :eek:

    As to Jesse Watters (Fox News) remark, he incorrectly states the whistleblower has a "professional relationship with one of the Democrats running against President" when in fact, it is not a current relationship, but a past relationship.

    But that relationship is not really relevant given that the Intelligence Inspector General (a Trump appointee) said despite the person's possible political bias, the complaint was "credible and urgent" and the CIA's top general counsel (a Trump appointee) believed the complaint was credible and urgent enough to make a criminal referral to the Dept. of Justice

    And now they've got him directly on obstruction...
    They want him to resist...and all his minions too.
    Democrats see an upside to Trump stonewalling their impeachment inquiry

    Meanwhile, Trump isn't the only one that play hardball.
    House Democrats Are Going With 'No Play, No Pay' to Get Trumpists to Testify

    And the House is the one in charge of money
    The Senate has no say.
    Neither do the courts.

    Do your job
    Then ya get paid.

    And I'm sure they can cut off spending for whole departments too, if not in compliance.
    Money talks, bullshit walks.

    More information about Counselori Guiliani's role in the Ukraine scandal.

    https://www.washingtonpost.com/poli...9c101a-eb63-11e9-9306-47cb0324fd44_story.html

    Did Counselori Guiliani advice them to leave the country?

    I'm seriously hoping this reaches the point where the Trump/Guiliani attorney-client privilege is declared moot because Counselori acted as an agent and employee, not as an attorney. It certainly appears as thought that line has been crossed many, many times.

    I have no idea what would need to transpire for this to happen. If the investigators can crack Guiliani, legally and literally (a much more difficult task?), Trump is in trouble.

    And it would glorious if Trump in his "great and unmatched wisdom" got nailed (red handed, holding a smoking gun) offering presidential pardons. IIRC he got caught at least once "suggesting" a pardon, but it was indirect and vague (legally speaking that is, his meaning was certainly clear).

    Outline - Read & annotate without distractions

    Interesting perspective
    And right on the nose historically

    But unfortunately, the current GOP leadership is in alliance with Trump, there are unspoken and unmarketed connections

    Mitch McConnell for example...
    And they’re revealing more daily
    It’s a twisted web
