Thank you Former Ukraine ambassador, Marie Yovanovitch you are a class act.

More evidence of Crazy Rudy going rogue and smearing those who stood up to his corrupt campaign against Biden in Ukraine. Yesterday we find out he was working with two thug pro-Russian Ukrainians who were arrested for illegal campaign contributions to a Trump PAC.

Trump was asked today if Rudy was still his lawyer - Donnie said "I don't know"...

That means you've been "Cohen-ized" Rudy - expect to soon be called a liar, a dog and a stooge....

Better get yourself a "good" lawyer and start pleading for a deal with Schiff...you've been thrown under the bus...

Trump was asked on Friday whether Giuliani was still his personal attorney. He answered, "I don't know."

How can a very stable genius, master businessman and 4d chess guru not know the answer to such a simple question?

How long until Trump says he's never even heard of Rudy the G.

All I know for the minute is that crooked Rudy Giuliani is going to gaol.

So she wasn’t disparaging the president in a foreign country and telling people not to do what they were ordered to do?

well based on her testifying when she was ordered not to, seems likely that’s exactly why she lost her appointment.

Somehow I suspect that is the most recent distortion of reality talking point from the right.

What is the cost of lies? It’s not that we will mistake them for the truth. The real danger is that, if we hear enough lies, then we no longer recognize the truth at all.

Bingo.

32% of republican voters think Trump should be impeached.

Uh-huh...I was never asked to take poll and no one I personally know was asked. I wonder who, which and where they took this poll and how many....

wow... If that’s really the best you guys can muster as a comeback argument to what the ambassador has laid out you’re really out of gas.

Yovanovitch told not to go by the WH, but subpoena required her to do so. This hilariously silly behavior from Trump shows that no he can't just say don't testify and believe no one will. He's a scrambling scared weasel and wants power of the presidency over responsibility of his egregious actions.

The crying Trump crowd are relying on their stubborn beliefs and brainwashed minds to believe there is/was no wrong doing by Trump, who believes he, like a King, can do what he wants. In his deranged mind, it's his kingdom, not the people's and only lemmings are allowed.

He won't get away with it, as the subpoenas require testimony and as more and more people are questioned, the proof of Trump's criminal activity will be shown, and then those same lemmings will still deny it. The narrative created by far right crowds is comedic to read, they get so riled up over protecting obvious lies, and don't even listen to Fox, their conservative station that can't hide behind right wing lying narrative anymore, they only listen to Trump's incessant lying.

There's nothing Trump can do they won't try to cobble together some kind of excuse for, but I imagine if the ambassador was acting in such an insubordinate manner there would have been some kind of statement to that effect. However the administration seems to have very little to say for itself.

So, when’s Bill Taylor up?

“As I said on the phone, I think it’s crazy to withhold security assistance for help with a political campaign,”

“Are we now saying that security assistance and [White House] meeting are conditioned on investigations?”

from everything that’s come out only complete simpleton would believe that Trump was really just trying to fight corruption. I challenge any Trump supporter to state it was not about his political rival it was about corruption.

The landslide has started in the Ukraine that will soon swamp and bury Trump. "Hell hath no fury like a woman scorned" is a lesson he has always refused to learn because he was able to pay off the women he used, abused and misused. The testimony of Yovanovitch, one of the few players sane in the Ukraine, will expose the dirt in Rudi's coffin and drive a stake through his vampire team of Lev and Igor. Trumpsylvania indeed!
