Impeachment witness Alexander Vindman escorted from White House..
 
Lt. Col. Alexander Vindman was escorted out of the White House on Friday and told to leave his position at the National Security Council (NSC), according to a statement released by his attorney. Vindman was one of the key witnesses who testified in connection with the House impeachment inquiry about President Trump’s phone call with the Ukrainian president during which Trump raised investigations of former Vice President Joe Biden and his son Hunter Biden's dealings in Ukraine.

And so the vindictiveness begins!

Trump you draft dodging POS. How dare you fire Vindman and follow it with the ultimate insult of escorting him off of the property!

How many people have been indicted and put in jail?? Trump is surrounded by criminals he has appointed to his cabinet and inner circle. His own lawyer is in jail! Yet, we are suppose to believe that he is an innocent man? That he is a decent and honorable man? Maya Angelou said.."when someone shows you who they are, believe them". He is a crook and con man who has pulled off the greatest con in history of this country by becoming president. He has dishonored the office and makes it a daily quest to dishonor the constitution. Ive seen 3rd graders with more emotional maturity and intellect than he could ever hope to attain. I say good on Nancy Pelosi for tearing up that National Enquirer worthy SOTU speech. The cherry on that pathetic display sundae was giving Rush Limbaugh the Medal of Freedom. trump is a danger to every american citizen and to every person on this planet. He is more of a danger than that guy in N. Korea because unlike Kim, Trump does in fact have nukes at his fingertips and the attention span of a 12 year old on their 3rd bag of sour patch kids.

He also fired Vindman's twin brother just for being his twin

How is this ok? This is retaliation! I lead a large government agency and if i fired a staff member for testifying against me i would be fired too, because it is illegal.

Mark my word: more things are going to come out that will prove just how guilty Trump & his enablers are. It will turn the public against them. How do we know? Read history. He looks like he’s getting away, but pride & arrogance come before a fall. Always have, always will.

It would be so easy to lose hope, to lose faith and confidence. But without hope, we lose will, without will, we lose the wonderful of tomorrow....

Personally, apart from more things coming out re: his past behaviour which seems to be highly likely, my feeling is that Trump will do something else incredibly stupid prior to the coming election, that will seal his fate. Of course, I could be wrong, but I've never been wrong about anyone before. There is always a first time! :)

If anyone caught The Rachael Maddow show last night, she showed clips where two sources stated Vnidmar would be safe from retaliation, of course this was at the time he testified!

THEN she showed a current clip where one of those sources was backtracking big time!

I'd be curious to know how many total Prayer Breakfasts Trump has attended in his years in office.

It's my opinion his attendance at this last one was to mainly gloat and shore up votes from the Evangelicals.

Former national security adviser John Bolton's team on Friday accused the White House of trying to suppress his unpublished book after word surfaced that the National Security Council had sent him a letter expressing concerns that the manuscript contained classified information. Sarah Tinsley, a senior adviser to Bolton, issued a statement Friday acknowledging that a letter from the NSC had been sent to Chuck Cooper, Bolton's lawyer.

“This latest leak from the NSC’s pre-publication review process raises even more serious concerns that the process has been thoroughly breached, and that it is more about suppressing Ambassador Bolton’s book than about classification issues," Tinsley said. She said Bolton was reviewing the letter and would respond. She said Bolton continues to believe “that the manuscript contains no legitimately classified material."

Trump says it's 'illegal' for Pelosi to tear up his State of the Union address. Experts say that's not true...
 
WASHINGTON – Departing the White House Friday afternoon, President Donald Trump asserted that House Speaker Nancy Pelosi "broke the law" in tearing up her copy of his State of Union address after he concluded his remarks Tuesday.

“Well I thought it was a terrible thing when she ripped up the speech. First of all, it’s an official document. You’re not allowed. It’s illegal what she did. She broke the law," he told reporters referring to The Presidential Records Act. Multiple experts said this law did not apply to the incident from Tuesday.

Heidi Kitrosser, a University of Minnesota law professor specializing in federal government secrecy and the separation of powers, told USA TODAY it was "crazy" to suggest Pelosi broke the law. The Presidential Records Act, which requires the president to preserve records, and other laws governing federal records were "designed to prevent the president and his advisers from shielding documentary information from public view," she explained.
They do not apply to "printouts or widely circulated documents" like copies of the State of the Union, she said.

Oh that poor thin-skinned delicate flower!

Donald Trump Jr nepotism comments of past....
 
“When you’re the father and your son’s entire career is dependent on that, they own you.” That’s what Donald Trump Jr. said Wednesday night on Fox News about Hunter Biden and nepotism, generating a collective face-palm by many on the internet.

Trump Jr. is executive vice president of the Trump Organization — his father’s company — and previously appeared as a judge on his father’s show “The Apprentice.” His previous comments concerning Hunter Biden and nepotism led some to say he lacked self-awareness, or at least a sense of irony...:hangloose:

Duh, why is Eric always portrayed as the dumb one!?

Vindman lawyer attacks Trump over 'obviously false statements'...
 
The lawyer for Lt Col Alexander Vindman condemned Donald Trump on Saturday for making “obviously false statements” about the decorated military veteran, after the president defended sacking him through several critical tweets. Ambassador David Pressman, who represents Vindman, said: “The president this morning made a series of obviously false statements concerning Lt Col Vindman; they conflict with the clear personnel record and the entirety of the impeachment record of which the president is well aware.” He went on: “While the most powerful man in the world continues his campaign of intimidation, while too many entrusted with political office continue to remain silent, Lt Col Vindman continues his service to our country as a decorated, active duty member of our military.”

Pressman’s statement came several hours after Trump said that the “Fake News @CNN & MSDNC keep talking about ‘Lt Col’ Vindman as though I should think only how wonderful he was. “Actually, I don’t know him, never spoke to him, or met him (I don’t believe!) but, he was very insubordinate, reported contents of my ‘perfect’ calls incorrectly, &…”

The next tweet from Trump said Vindman “was given a horrendous report by his superior, the man he reported to, who publicly stated that Vindman had problems with judgement, adhering to the chain of command and leaking information.

So even IF anything that Trump says is true, what justification does he have for firing his twin brother???

Pelosi is a boss. I do see how one can feel that the Impeachment was a waste of time but in all actuality it was not. The indictment wasn't expected to succeed due to Senate control. However, the Impeachment of 45 is on the record and will forever be a part of history. He can never say he wasn't impeached. That gives me joy.

I wrote that before the revelations about Ukraine. I agree that we had to impeach. Trump's actions were blatantly corrupt.

I don't believe Trump will suffer any electoral loss after his impeachment...he spins untruth well and the speed of the news cycle helps him along...i wish msnbc and cnn would stop covering every bad thing he does because it has helped normalize his bad behavior to a point where it's 'just trump being trump'...we could beat him easily but i don't have much faith in the democratic base right now...half of us are purists and the other half will have difficulty voting for a very liberal candidate ie Bernie, and his burners will have an incredibly difficult time voting for a moderate candidate...we are so busy battling each other trump will slide right back into the drivers seat and we on the left will be pulling our hair out screaming wtf and wondering how did he do it?..........(we)dems are our own worse enemy.

Jan 30th..........
 
Portion of US border wall in California falls over in high winds and lands on Mexican side.

The area is part of an ongoing construction project to improve existing sections of the wall.Agent Carlos Pitones of the Customs and Border Protection sector in El Centro, California, told CNN that the sections that gave way had recently been set in a new concrete foundation in Calexico, California. The concrete had not yet cured, according to Pitones, and the wall panels were unable to withstand the windy conditions.

Yup, looks like he's got the very BEST people on the job!
