Yuriko Koike said the IOC was inconsistent since it had known about Tokyo’s heat since the games were awarded in 2013.
The Tokyo bidders were inconsistent since they had known about Tokyo's heat since forever, and yet claimed in the bid that Tokyo summers were pleasant.

“abuse of power” as such a vague generalization
No, it's not. Trump withheld military aid to Ukraine--which had been appropriated by Congress--in return for a public announcement by the Ukrainian president that Joe Biden's son would be investigated. For the purpose of hurting Joe Biden's presidential campaign. This has been corroborated by various people. The White House provided no explanation at the time for this aid being withheld. The aid to Ukraine was released just after the whistleblower's complaint became public. This is fact. There is no evidence that Trump was interested in corruption in Ukraine beyond so-called corruption by Hunter Biden (for which there is no evidence either).
Fact. Trump used the power of his office to undermine national security and the co-equal branch of government for his own political gain. That is abuse of power, bribery, and corruption rolled into one.
Live with it. You're supporting a crook.

Trump and his people know that he has no credible defense, so he demands to call witnesses (like Hunter Biden) that will simply distract from the facts already established and add nothing substantive.
I knew this would happen.

When Schiff, Hunter and E.., I mean the whistleblower comes out and testifies, it should be very interesting to see their LEGO blocks fall apart.
Trump ‘n Friends want to prove there was no desire to smear the Bidens—by smearing the Bidens.
Go ahead and get them to testify. The Trumpster narrative will get shot through with even more holes than it has now.

My prediction is that Trump will make some impossible demand in exchange for testifying (e.g. insist that the whistleblower be in the same room with him, on national television). The Democrats will refuse and Trump will whine about the process being unfair. His base will love it.
I very much doubt he will testify.

Trump defenders insist that Trump was intent on stamping out rampant corruption in Ukraine, and not only in investigating Hunter Biden. And to prove it all they do is call for an investigation into Hunter Biden.
Not the sharpest tacks in the box.

Amari also called for the economy to be supported after the Tokyo Olympics and Paralympics next year, saying, "We should avoid a bleak economic situation after hosting such a festival."
I thought the Olympics were supposed to bring lasting economic benefits to Japan. Is Amari admitting it's all a fraud and a massive waste of money?

We were very clear. We wanted to make sure that the corruption that has been existing in Ukraine for an awfully long time was reduced," Pompeo said.
Pompeo also has refused to comply with subpoenas for documents.
= everything was above board, the phone call was "perfect", but we the Trump faithful refuse to offer you evidence.
It's also interesting that the Trump administration cared so much about corruption in Ukraine that they tried to get funding for anti-corruption programs reduced, and they relied on the president's personal lawyer, Giuliani, rather than professionals in the diplomatic corps, to handle this concern.

Trump has said multiple times that the U.S. is "keeping the oil."
Esper said Friday he "interprets" Trump's remarks to mean the military should deny IS access to the oil fields.
As President Merkin Muffley once said, "There's nothing to figure out, General Turgidson. This man is obviously a psychotic."

a socialist corrupt Democrat
OK. Assuming these people are "socialists", please tell me if Pete Buttigieg, Elizabeth Warren, Kamala Harris, or Joe Biden have ever done the following:
--used the authority of an elected office to extort damaging information about a political opponent.
--used the office to which he/she was elected for personal profit through his/her properties at the expense of the taxpayer.
--refused to release past financial records and lied about the reasons for such refusal.
--appointed offspring and offspring's spouse to high level White House positions despite their lack of any relevant experience.
--lied while in office about paying off a pornstar to keep her quiet.
--used Twitter to threaten witnesses against him, and dangle pardons for those considering keeping mum.
--called the press "enemies of the people".
For starters. Looking forward to your response.

Show me evidence they were investigating Hunter Biden.

I don't like nepotism either, but it's not a crime.
And BTW, Hunter Biden wasn't CEO of Burisma.
