      Why is it ok for Schiff to address vidman as Mr. Vidman (as did Nunes – who was responded to by the witness “that is Lt. Col. Vidman”)?!?

        One can see why the Dems and MSM gave PDJT such a hard time appointing the eminently qualified Grennel. Spelling ? Such a hard time.

        PDJT was stonewalled for months on that one..

        These Ambassador positions are rife for corruption minded scum politicians.

        The German post being one of the most important ones in the world.

        The picture is all coming into ever clearer focus.

        God bless PDJT

    no offense to nunes, who i love, but when you are given the time and opportunity to state your case and defend the president, don’t slough it off like you have done in your past closing statements.

    the president doesnt have counsel. you and your fellow comm members are de facto his counsel.

    utilize your time to hammer home the simple point of law and then spend the rest of your time insulting ridiculing disparaging and destroying. repeat yourself if need be. use your time to point out this is a shiff show.

    We elicited some good admissions out of Vindman when he admitted he talked to two people, and one of them appears to be an IC individual….likely the not so mysterious whistleleaker.
    None to swifty Schiffty then corroborated the admission by his shut down of any questions that could expose the whistle leaker.

    So looks like Schiffty and the Lt. Col both knew who he was.

    :
    “Alleged Ukraine whistleblower Eric Ciaramella was close friends at the White House with an official who is now a key aide to Adam Schiff,:”

    “Sean Misko, 37, was the director for the Gulf States at the National Security Council from 2015 until the first half of 2018. Ciaramella, 33, a career CIA analyst, was Ukraine director on the NSC from at least 2016 until the summer of 2017. Both officials arrived during the Obama administration and left during the Trump administration.”

        Judge Sullivan has not yet ruled on Flynn’s motion to compel and to hold the prosecution in contempt. The briefing concluded on November 4, with Powell’s sur-reply (that’s likely the “talk” you’re recalling).

        The longer Sullivan takes to rule, the MORE likely Sullivan will be ordering more documents produced. (For him, the quick, easy way out would just be to issue a simple “denied” order.) Addressing Powell’s motion document by document, ordering at least some further production, would take more careful analysis, thought and time.

        I don’t think we can read much into Sullivan’s failure to rule yet. Let’s wait and see.

          Thank you for the update. I remembered Sidney Powell’s sur-reply but for some reason thought that the judge was supposed to rule on that within a week or so. Hoping that this delay in doing so means that he is giving careful scrutiny to her request and will be issuing a very thorough response.

      Judge Sullivan is still sitting on this travesty. The Judge is apparently waiting for the IG report, rather than again ordering production of records he previously ordered produced, but which order was refused by the FBI/DOJ.

      There is another redacted spy in the White House, who’se name the FBI has redacted in other records, IIRC. Is that spy ciaramella? Why didn’t any Repub ask him if he has ever reported directly or indirectly as a spy to the CIA/FBI about any White House information, other than the recent PDJUT Ukraine telephone call?

    One thing is for certain, Vindman’s future job prospects just dwindled to nothing. I doubt Ukraine would use him for dog catcher after this escapade.

      Nope. There were 1403 comments on last Friday’s hearing thread and 1654 after last Wednesday’s hearing. I’m pretty sure those numbers have also been topped in the past on other subjects.

      (Of course, if you add this morning’s hearing count to this afternoon’s coming count, we might have a number to talk about!)

If that were the standard, we’d have half of our armed services permanently stationed in Africa. We don’t and there are reasons for it.

        As a rule, when politicians speak of moral causes and crusades, they are LYING. This is why America First is the only policy agenda you can trust.

        The alternative novie being shown today shows that every witness called just ‘bolsters’ the case against POTUS. Impeachment, then conviction of Orange Man Bad is certain. Then on to Pence. Accessory to Bribery and High Crimes and Misdemeanors.
        Does Lawfare really comprehend what sort of explosion they seem to be trying to set off? Do they want to be Bugs Bunny trying to hit the firing pin on the bomb just right? Or do they believe that the country will just watch idly as a President is removed for no other reason than not getting in bed with the in crowd in DC? They think that once POTUS is removed they will have control of all of the levers of power, and then can steer the ship of state in the direction they want regardless what the paying passengers want. If the machinery the levers are connected to is sabotaged, the levers no will longer work. And they will be sabotaged and the crew will be removed forcibly if Trump is removed for such laughable reasons. If there is no rule of law, there are no constraints on actions. There won’t be any law to protect the coup plotters from the angry partisans of the champion Lawfare took down. I don’t think they realize that.

    Just saw on Fox web site that Vinmand scolded Nunes for not addressing him by his military rank of LTC. But then I suppose as he thinks he out ranks the President of the United States, he would figure he out ranks a lowly congressman by even more. Although I doubt he would pull that on a democrat congressman. He should have his dress flying monkey bell hop suit pulled off and replaced with a white suit that ties in the back. I suppose Nunes was just lucky Vinmand didn’t order him to drop and give him 50 pushups. Whatever happened to civilian being above military in America? Where the F are this jerk’s commanding officers? The Founding Fathers would throw up.

    I want someone to ask about “Ivanovich”, the woman mentioned in the transcript. According to the transcript, President Z said she was the Ukraine ambassador to the US, and was difficult and suspected to be corrupt. Sundance retweeted something last night that suggests Ivanovich was actually Yovanovitch, which would mean that either Zelinsky mis-spoke or someone messed up the transcription and identified the woman mentioned as Ukraine’s ambassador instead of the US’s ambassador.
    And Vindman has testified that the transcript is accurate. Which would be a nice coincidence since he was the one who prepared it. According to Wikipedia, Ukraine has never had an Ambassador to the US named Ivanovich, male or female.

    From a purely aesthetic point of view, these may be the “best” witnesses Schiff has paraded before us. They are simply boring. As opposed to peevish (Vindman), pedantic (Taylor) and cloying (Yanovich).

    They’re all self-important, but some are worse than others. Vindman is the very definition of insufferable.

    Either this was all the dems could muster, or they truly think this cast of characters plays well. It’s as if they believe these people sell the Big Picture Narrative we are supposed to swallow: that when it comes down to it, the voice of the people should be “tempered” by these polished bureaucrats; will of the people does not in fact always know best; in short, we need a Deep State.

    When the impeachment gambit likely/hopefully fails, THAT is the intended takeaway, the subtext or ulterior motive in all this. And it’s delusional. Mercifully, I don’t believe there are (yet) enough Americans who agree with them. These stuffed suits come off as fools. The democrats drink their own kool aid and can’t see it.

    I mean, Vindman. I can’t watch 5 seconds without recoiling in disdain. He’s utterly dislikable, a screaming weasel. He’s the face of this, and the best they could do.
