        I inadvertently watched some of that freak show with yoiamabitch. Very disconcerting this is being allowed. Schifty is a serious power loving tyrant. Unreal seeing his eyes pop every time he uses his self proclaimed status of king.
        They are basing this on PT not being subservient to the mic, not following proper procedure, letting the mic call all the shots, as most Presidents before him. That is literally her complaint. She and her comrades had it all set up for screwing the Ukraine, and PT is throwing it all back in their face.
        The damage our mic has done to other countries, while sacrificing our bravest and best, is shameful.

    Too bad Fox and Friends didn’t read Sundance piece on Jennifer Williams—

    Jennifer Williams was actually on the call with Trump and Zelensky, it is curious that Ms. Williams originally testified that President Trump brought up the company Burisma during the call… only later having to modify her testimony to state that it was Zelensky who brought up the company. A curious mistake all things considered.
    Ms. Williams delivered her testimony on November 7th. Ms. Williams corrected her testimony on November 11th. Ms. Williams is the Senior Advisor to Vice-President Pence.
    It’s CONCERNING that a senior staffer within the executive branch made a “mistake“, during a highly important deposition, that specifically undermines President Trump.

      It’s concerning to me that SHE mentioned Burisma during that testimony even though she was not asked about it. I wrote in the Williams thread that in the testimony you can see that she was asked a generic question about the call transcript, whether or not she thought it was accurate. SHE is the one who mentioned Burisma. It’s like she was prepped for that testimony and she knew Burisma was an important topic, but she screwed up and mentioned it before she was asked about it. Ooops.

            Pence was an inside party man, friends with Paul Ryan, Reince Priebus, and has never succeeded in helping with dealing with the legislative branch where he spent time. DJT has to develop his own skills and contacts with the Senate and House before he was able to get his bills written and passed.
            Pence is a passive mole (like Sessions), but he did have one critical mission which he took part in, getting rid of Flynn, the number one target of the Dark State.

        Cofefe GREAT CATCH… i think the connecting the conspirators together is by tracking who trys to insert the word BURISMA into the conversation.!!!

        remember Vindman wanted Burisma in the transcript instead of the company.

        my guess is the feb 2016 Biden fires prosecuter (Threat) and in August 2016 Manafort is gone. – meaning BIDEN IS PART OF THE MANAFORT election interference investigation!!

        Because Biden put in the new prosecuters and they coordinated with Chalupa and developed the fake black ledger narrative that CAUSED Manafort to be removed from trumps campaign (STARTING THE RUSSIA HOAX) Aug 2016

      Pence seems to be a company man, a by the book kind of guy who is very conservative on social issues, clean as a boy scout (that phrase doesn’t seem to carry the same meaning or make the same impact as it used to!) and while he might not be overtly or even consciously a deep stater/uniparty RINO disloyal actor….can those around him influence, plant seeds, know him well enough to know what “facts”, what influences, what “reality” to create for him to act in a predictable way?

      Because he IS so clean, dedicated to principle, by the book and by The Book, doesn’t that make him predictable and easy for those who mean evil (or are at least up to no good) to use him even without him seeing that he is being used?

      Sometimes good people can be used as pawns or districted from actively working for good/MAGA *because* they Are Good People and therefore their actions in specific situations predictable.

      Overall, Pence seems to be doing a quality job and supporting MAGA, publicly and in speeches, actions, etc. His private conversations and off the record actions – well, by their nature I don’t know.

      What I do know is that some (many?) of the people who surround him seem questionable, even to the point of suspicious at times (see last night’s SD post on transcripts released).

      Also, with all of the leaks, have we had ANY leaks from the Pence staff or involving Pence? At all? If he is supporting President Trump in private why has no one leaked supportive things he has said that go along with issues leaked from the rest of the WH? Is this a dog that hasn’t barked?

      Is he an active participant or placed well by others? Is he surrounding himself with particular people or are particular people surrounding him? Why? Why is he protected from leaks, from association of all scandal? Sure, scandals that directly involve President Trump personally…but protected from policy “scandals” and drama cooked up by the Fake News concerning issues Pence is rarely involved or mentioned in these stories. Why?

      Far left hate him due to social issues and strong Christianity but, in general, he is kept out of the drama and no leaks on him. Thinking more about how the Deep State is treating him than the far left protesters, activists and even some politicians. Thinking about how the RINO/GOPe half of the Uniparty is treating him. Gives me pause for thought but not sure what I think about this.

        Excellent questions and connections, Katherine. Taking a stab at the overarching question, and based on the continuing GOPe skittish posture in regard to our President, I’m hanging my hat on the grooming factor. For better or worse, they are grooming, i.e., protecting VP Pence for higher office, if ya know what ah mean.

        In Spanish, the expression is, “por si acaso”… In French it is, “au cas ou”… It all means: “in the event that…”, just in case…”, and my favorite from science and mathematics,
        “If this, then that”… X ➡️ Y.

    Everyone keep in Louisiana keep in mind you voted for more seasonal Mexicans. They have taken over the sugarcane business, the landscaping business etc. They cut the cane and drive the trucks. It use to be for citizens. In Thibodaux Louisiana the Mexican truck drivers were so brazen that they put out Edwards signs on the rds. You voted your children’s future away. You voted a another teacher raise when they are already fleecing the taxpayer but dumbing your kids down further, in addition wanting to medicate them all. It is sad to watch so much energy expended on alcohol and football here but you do not even care about your kids future by voting. Go to the post office and get in line. Watch the illiterate who can’t even properly address a letter or box and remember, you voted for that.

            • conservativeinny- judging from your posts, I think we may live in neighboring counties.

              I have been involved with town and county GOP politics for over 25 years and sat on the committees, worked to get candidates elected, etc.
              In the last 10 years or so, everything changed as new people moved in from NYC to the area. The current regime does not support our President Trump which was the last straw for me. So I changed affiliation to Libertarian and ran for office on that ticket in the last election. I didn’t win but did extremely well considering it was the first time that party was on the ballot.
              I will never go back to the GOP after what they have done to destroy the Repub base in my county. They are WORSE than the Demonics in every way.
              It sickens me that they still have so much power with the ballot box. You cannot get elected without having a “D” or an “R” after your name. And even though I am a lifelong Rep, they would never endorse me.
              I am so proud of Elise Stefanik and can’t believe that someone of her caliber managed to get elected in our State.

                Before you embrace her wholeheartedly, however, take a look at her positions on issues — e.g., opposed Trump’s travel ban, opposed Trump’s border emergency declaration, opposes withdrawal from Paris Climate Accord, voted against Trump’s tax cuts, member of RINO “Tuesday Group” in the House, etc.

                If I listed a number of her positions and asked which Republican votes/thinks this way, your first guess would be “Susan Collins.”

                On the other hand, she is young and perhaps she can be converted!

          Dekester: New Orleans, the most populated city in Lousiana, is politically equivalent to Chicago, Detroit, Baltimore, and Los Angeles when it comes to: 1) number of brainwashed or needy voters, 2) many surviving on hand outs and payola, and 3) uncontrolled (and promoted) election fraud. Incumbents tend to be automatically reelected until they retire or pass away (unless they kill their mother or commit a similar felony). The rest of Lousiana gave majority votes to Mr. Rispone.

          I didn’t go unnoticed that Rispone was ahead in the vote until the New Orleans reports started to came in. They were the last to be reported because a much larger number of votes take longer longer to count, sort out, and tabulate.

            Kentucky was an old Dem state for generations and although the R’s have made great inroads at the federal level, they have always struggled with the governorship. You had a combination of old name recognition and a brash R governor who took a great, businesslike, fiscally conservative, but brash approach. The attempt to correct the pension crisis ignored by the new Governors father for 8 years and the daily front page (above the fold) negative press by the local lib papers was enough despot the remainder of the slate of R’s winning by double digits. Ky was a one off but very costly in that a Dem will be in charge in a census year. The gerrymandering the last gov did was ridiculous.

          I will be honest – when my husband and I were talking about our future in serious stages of dating I told him I would be happy to move anywhere with him except a few places. LA was one because of the corruption (and NO another specially because of the geology, just a matter of time before floods/disaster and this conversation was early 90s & we take chance of natural disasters such as flooding, hurricanes and earthquakes seriously when choosing a place to live). As a mixed race couple, LA as was the one state I didn’t want to move to due to corruption stories I had read.

          And yet, one of my dearest friends is from LA — so MANY Wonderful People and such a wonderful history, lively, rich, warm culture & so much beauty and fascinating nature unique to LA. One of the most fantastic places … that I would never live in.

          Sad for your state, its people and for the rest of us when we see wrong win. Culture war. Got to get the message out. Dems are not just being “nice” and the feel good party. They are corrupt, destructive and harmful. Many are outright evil. A vote for them, even a “good” Dem who is anti abortion, etc., empowers the National Dems.

          Some groups of women seem the most vulnerable to their climate change scare tactics, gun “control”, sob stories about illegal immigrants, etc. We must fight back with facts and expose the Dems. Take lessons from KY and LA (and AL in their special election for Senator) and remember them well for 2020 as we vote in the primaries and work in the general election campaigns.

        “Conrad Tribble grew up in Los Angeles, California, joined the Foreign Service in 1987, and has served as Deputy Assistant Secretary of State for Western Europe and the European Union since August 2015. He arrived in Washington after three years as Deputy Chief of Mission in Havana, where he helped manage the historic reestablishment of diplomatic relations and the opening of the U.S. Embassy.”

        “Mr. Tribble started his career as a consular officer in Santiago, Chile, then spent a two-year tour in the Department’s Politico-Military Bureau. He spent the next eleven years working on U.S.-European relations as Germany desk officer, Cyprus desk officer, OSCE action officer, and Coordinator for Baltic Sea regional cooperation programs. That period included a three-year tour in Bonn, where he was an exchange diplomat in the German Foreign Office prior to heading the external political affairs section. After a tour as Political Counselor in Port-au-Prince, Haiti from 2003-2005, Mr. Tribble served as a Senior Watch Officer in the State Department’s Operations Center, then attended the National War College at Ft. McNair, Class of 2007, where he earned Distinguished Graduate honors. Following a stint as Director of the Department’s 24-hour Intelligence and Research Watch, Mr. Tribble led a Provincial Reconstruction Team embedded with a U.S. Army brigade in eastern Baghdad, Iraq, from 2008-2009. For the following three years he served as Principal Officer and Consul General in Munich, Germany before transferring to Havana in 2012.”

        He’s also listed as a Senior Fellow of the German Marshall Fund of the United States, which has the tagline “Strengthening Transatlantic Cooperation”. Guess who is listed in addition as a Resident Senior Fellow: Evelyn Farkas!

    Check this out. It’s the HPSCI summary of Jennifer Williams’ testimony. Schiff’s HPSCI. The summary was published on Thu Nov 14.

    At her deposition, Ms. Williams was asked whether the Ukrainian company Burisma was
    mentioned by name during the call between President Trump and President Zelensky on
    July 25, 2019. She testified that it was. She was then asked who had mentioned it and
    whether she had taken notes. Ms. Williams testified that she had taken notes, and that she
    believed her notes reflected that President Trump had referenced Burisma.
    https://intelligence.house.gov/uploadedfiles/20191114_-_williams_transcript_excerpts_final.pdf

    This is FALSE. Read Williams’ testimony. She was not asked whether Burisma was mentioned during the call. She was asked if the transcript of the call was accurate. SHE was the one who mentioned Burisma, that it was in her notes but not in the transcript, she was not asked about it.

    Q Based on being in the room and taking notes and then reading the transcript, was it accurate and complete? [there is back and forth Q and A but none of it mentions Burisma]
    A My notes did reflect that the word Burisma had come up in the call, that the President had mentioned Burisma. I hadn’t noticed that when I first read the transcript.

    Someone doublecheck my work. The Williams testimony transcript is available in Sundance’s article on the topic. https://theconservativetreehouse.com/2019/11/16/house-releases-transcripts-from-jennifer-williams-and-tim-morrison-depositions/ Start on page 62, where Rep Castor begins her questioning. The question about the transcript is on page 65,

    The HPSCI headed by Schiff undoubtedly deliberately misstated what happened in order to misinform the public. They cherry picked quotes from her testimony to support their lie. I haven’t checked yet but I suspect there were propaganda media articles propagating this false info

    NBC yesterday, and Harf on Fox this morning: DNC machine softening everyone up to accept the idea of a late entry Golden Child as pres candidate.

    This is a tricky move. The problem is the big donors and the DNC machine – DNC machine needs someone who is within the fold, and the candidates that are in the fold, or very well would be in the fold – Booker, Harris, Biden — are not doing well at all. Warren and Sanders are outside the fold.

    So, as the season opened, a bunch of the cream of the crop of Democrat candidates emerged – and if you look across their best, they are all lousy and the populace don’t like them.

    That is pretty pathetic: the cream of their crop is lousy.

    Will we get another crop? Bloomberg, Patrick, etc.? Will there be a parade of place-holders until Hiraly announces? People will get in the mindset of considering Round Two candidates, and all of a sudden we get Hiraly?

    Or, is the DNC machine simply in search of someone who has half a chance of winning, and is willing to play along with the UNiparty and all of the established corruption?

    “Alex Vindman also has an older brother named Leonid Simon Vindman.

    Leonid Simon Vindman is the “Founder and Managing Partner, Tungsten Capital Advisors” and “has approximately thirty years of experience in the financial markets,” his company website states.

    “During the past twenty five years, he has been focusing predominantly on Central Eastern Europe, Russia and Central Asia where he completed some of the biggest investment and advisory transactions in the region,” according to the website. “He also completed transactions in the Middle East, and traveled extensively in Asia and Africa.”

    “The page continues: “Prior to founding Tungsten he was a Managing Director responsible for investment banking origination and client coverage activities for Russia and CIS region at UniCredit Group – the largest international bank in Central and Eastern Europe at that time. Previously he worked as a Vice President Investment Banking at JPMorgan Chase, Principal Banker at the European Bank for Reconstruction and Development (the EBRD), Senior Associate at Bankers Trust and Manager at Central Europe Trust.”

    “The bank handled billions of dollars in illegal and non-transparent transactions to clients in sanctioned countries including Cuba, Iran, Libya, Myanmar and Sudan, according to New York’s Department of Financial Services, which fined UniCredit $405 million as part of the settlement. The U.S. attorney’s office in Washington, the Treasury Department, the New York branch of the Federal Reserve Bank and the New York district attorney’s office also took part in the settlement.

    “Leonid Vindman “received his Bachelor’s degree from Dartmouth College and an MBA from the University of Chicago Booth Graduate School of Business,” his company website says.

    “The company’s founding and managing partner Maria Starkova-Vindman is described as “an art historian and art advisor” who previously “worked at the Pushkin Museum of Fine Arts in Moscow as an assistant keeper and curator, and taught on the Courtauld MA course on global contemporary art.”

    “UniCredit SpA’s German banking unit pleaded guilty to U.S. charges that it allowed Iranian customers to conduct transactions in violation of sanctions.

    “The bank will pay $1.3 billion as part of its settlement with several U.S. regulators, and its Austrian unit will enter into a deferred-prosecution agreement. The German business, HypoVereinsbank, will also enter a guilty plea in Manhattan to a state-level charge of violating books-and-records.

    “The bank handled billions of dollars in illegal and non-transparent transactions to clients in sanctioned countries including Cuba, Iran, Libya, Myanmar and Sudan, according to New York’s Department of Financial Services, which fined UniCredit $405 million as part of the settlement.

I suppose Pompeo is responsible but the same applies to him as to Trump. He may be SoS but I doubt he runs the State Dep’t. Given that Yovanovitch & Co. worked in Ukraine–one of those countries used by the US for money laundering/”redistributing” USAID money, perhaps leaving the Obama clique there was inexcusable.

    In June 2017, chief executive officer of YouTube, Susan Wojcicki, announced that this was how they were going to filter news content across the YouTube platforms. As Vorhies expected, this led to a clamp down on anything that goes against the mainstream narrative.

    “Around that time, I had the fortune of catching [another] seditious activity by Google. What I caught them doing was deleting words out of the translation dictionary from Arabic to English, in order to make a Trump tweet sound crazy.2,3”

    President Trump had recently come back from a visit to Saudi Arabia when, on May 31, 2017, he tweeted: “Despite the negative constant press, covfefe.” Originally, people were able to translate “covfefe” to “We will stand up.” Taken together, you could see President Trump’s tweet basically said, “Despite the negative constant press, we will stand up.”

    “People got really excited about that,” Vorhies says. “Well, The New York Times decided that they were going to write an entire article saying, ‘Actually, this word is nonsense. And everyone who thinks there’s a decode is just wrong.’

    The same day that this article came out, I believe it was June 1, 2017, a senior executive person at Google … of one of the AI divisions, wrote up a design document saying, ‘We translated this world from Arabic to English. But according to The New York Times, that’s not right. That’s actually nonsense, so let’s get rid of the word.’ And so, they got rid of the word.

    The team that was responsible for getting rid of this word called themselves the ‘Derrida Team.’ Why is that significant? Because there was a French philosopher by the name of Jacques Derrida, who advocated for the destruction of Western culture through the manipulation and censorship of language.

    What a coincidence that this team responsible for censoring words would have the same name as this very significant philosopher who is considered the father of post-modernism.

    About six days later, I saw the newspapers were making a push for invoking the 25th Amendment to remove a sitting president from office due to mental incapacitation. One of the reasons that they cited was how Trump was tweeting nonsense.

    Now, wait a minute, that was made nonsense by this manipulation of the dictionary! I realized these people have gone too far. There’s obviously a collusion here. I have to bring this to attention no matter what.

    This isn’t because I’m necessarily a Trump supporter — I didn’t vote for him — this is simply because they can’t be doing this to a sitting president of the United States. That just can’t happen. It’s treason.

    If this is going to happen, then I’ve got to let the public [and] law enforcement know about it. Because if I don’t, then I’m part of a conspiracy of silence … It was at that point that I decided I could no longer sit in silence. I took my cache of documents and I started to prepare for a disclosure event.”

    Some people may be mad at Chris Wallace, Bret Baier, et al, now, but when they change their tune when it suits the MSM narrative and act at least somewhat fair to PDJT, the same ones will be saying how they have grown and how they listened and how they have changed.

    Just like they have with Beck, Bannon, Alex Jones, etc.

    What the farce boils down to is that Nancy Pelosi is so demented she actually believes she should impeach a president she hates because she has a 40-seat majority in the House of Representatives.

    Insanity on stilts.

  30. Why did the Democrats suddenly go ape-shit when this phone call occurred? Because they have been doing corrupt activities in Ukraine for decades. (For instance, Obama didn’t provide arms, so that Pelosi, Nadler, and Schiff could conspire to make illegal arms deals.) Billions of dollars in US Aid have been embezzled by the Congress members who gave it. And so on and on.

    So, now, the Lawfare lawyers are assuring them that they can pass a Bill of Attainder, accusing and punishing the President without benefit of trial (and, without criminal indictments nor the promise of same), and that this will fulfill the “high crimes and misdemeanors” requirement … never mind that §1.9.3 specifically prohibits bills of attainder. Then, at 2:00 AM with only Democratic Senators and the Chief Justice “present,” they’ll finish the coup d’etat. Easy, peasy.

    They can’t imagine that there would be any legal challenge – only that criminal lawmakers want to protect their own asses. They’ll simply impeach Trump and Pence,and thereby establish the new legal precedent that the Speaker of the House will become President from now on. Easy, peasy.

    But – there are “lessons of history” here. A palace coup is nothing new, nor is it unfamiliar, nor was it unanticipated by the authors of our Republic. It will not be permitted to succeed. And, Justice will be served upon those who never expected it.

    I could be wrong, but I don’t believe that Ms. Williams is actually a direct hire by Pence. I think she was assigned to him by the NSC.

      At this point, anybody “assigned” should be left out of any policy or phone call discussions. Period. These assigned characters are roaming the halls looking for anything they can report back to “the resistance.” I can’t believe I am even have to think this way in the USA. It is unbelievable and so much worse than I ever imagined.

        All over. You place plants all over the White House. Your question suggests there would only be 1 plant. They’re planted all over. Pence’s team was an early target for inflitration. Remember the Page Strozk texts.

        11-17-2019 19:49:43: Or, he’s “the CI guy.” Same might make sense. He can assess if there are ant news Qs, or different demeanor. If [Katie Porter’s] husband (Joshua Pitcock) is there, he can see if there are people we can develop for potential relationships.

    John Solomon: Most counter intelligence investigations are always briefed to the president. I would like to see DBDs (daily debriefs) of President Obama actually going back to the summer of 2015… It’s impossible that John McCain did not know about all of the key activities. And it is obvious that the Attorney General would have to know working with the FBI.

    This certainly explains John Brennan’s many panicked attacks against President Trump on Twitter.

      “This certainly explains John Brennan’s many panicked attacks against President Trump on Twitter.”

      Brennan’s a true believer, fellow traveler type. As such, hard to imagine he’d implicate Obama in return for a deal. In the old days, I suppose he’d be “exfiltrated” back to Moscow to play cards with Kim Philby but these days what happens? Off with his head? Locked up in the Tower? And what of Obama, Clinton, and Obama’s several AG’s? They skate or get exiled or what? This palace coup stuff may be an old story but I find myself almost giddy considering what kind of punishments might occur in the new updated version.
