    Former U.S. Ambassador to Ukraine Marie Yovanovitch told lawmakers Friday that President Donald Trump pressured the State Department to oust her from her position.

    Yovanovitch appeared on Capitol Hill on Friday for a deposition in the Democrats’ impeachment inquiry. The Democratic chairmen of three House committees said they subpoenaed her before her testimony after they learned late Thursday that the State Department had directed Yovanovitch not to testify.

    Yovanovitch was recalled from Kyiv as Rudy Giuliani – who is Trump’s personal attorney and has no official role in the U.S. government – pushed Ukrainian officials to investigate corruption allegations against the Bidens. Yovanovitch was removed from her post after insisting that Giuliani’s requests to Ukrainian officials for investigations be relayed through official channels, according to a former diplomat who has spoken with her.

    Besides Guiliani and Bill Barr, another Trump official who was involved in the scheme to pressure Ukraine to help Trump was Mick Mulvaney. At critical moments, acting White House chief of staff Mick Mulvaney circumvented the National Security Council and assisted those pressing Kiev to produce "deliverables" that could help President Trump politically.

    Ukraine is not the only country that Trump is withholding funds from.

    As it turns out, Puerto Rico has also been screwed by Trump.

    Trump administration officials have admitted that last summer they knowingly withheld billions of dollars Congress appropriated to help Puerto Rico recover from Hurricane Maria. House Democrats say withholding the relief money violates the law.

    Federal law requires that our government help Americans hit by natural disasters, but two Housing and Urban Development officials acknowledged at a House Appropriations subcommittee hearing on Oct. 17 that HUD blocked the Puerto Rico relief funds.

    Keep your fucking paper towels, Trump. What they need is MONEY. It's not brain surgery to figure that out, Mr. Carson.

    As far as I can see, the only solution is to clean out this whole pig barn with lots of brooms and disinfectant. Rewrite the Constitution to reflect modern times and add new laws which clearly define the tasks and limits of the upper echelon.

    If not then this country is doomed; it cannot continue with an 2 party system which are extremely polarized and incompetent. Way too many "partisan" lawyers in this country who only make the mess bigger. The only way to get rid of them is write laws clear and without "loopholes". Also it is time to rewrite/update the Constitution; way to few updates in 300 years. Case laws should not be needed, if there is an sound up to date "base law" which is updated all the time, so it is an "living document". Amen

    The news about Ukraine gets more damning virtually every day. Here's the most recent examples:

    1) Trump was actively seeking to build a resort there. Both Ivanka and Don Jr. traveled there in 2006, and Don Jr. traveled there in 2008. Junior and his father have blasted Joe Biden for son doing business in a foreign country but here we are with another classic case of Trump’s projection skills which are at the level of an IMAX theater.

    2) Don Jr. played a key role in having the former ambassador removed. The Ambassador sent a secure email at the end of this past March to the State Department brass, explaining that Trump Jr.’s public tweets led to an “avalanche of attacks” on both herself and the embassy, which “undercut” the perception that she spoke for the U.S. government, and promoted Rudy Giuliani as our nation’s rightful messenger to the authorities.

    Incredibly, instead of a statement of support, Ambassador Yovanovich was instead advised by hotelier turned-EU Ambassador Gordon Sondland that she should tweet praises of President Trump if she wanted to save her job.

    3) transcripts just released reveal that Trump himself may have been directly involved as early as January 2018 - and Rudy is definitely in deep shit.

    He also withheld funds for Lebanon who is just about run over by refugees and Syria may attack them with Russian help.

    According to a report from Axios, Democratic Senators Kamala Harris, Richard Blumenthal and Sheldon Whitehouse have filed an FOIA request for documents and communications pertaining to Donald Trump’s attempts to get Attorney General Bill Barr to clear him of wrongdoing in his Ukraine quid pro quo demand. This is the second time these senators made a FOIA request for Trump-Ukraine information in less than three weeks.

    Gee, Trump's plan to use his Attorney General to pardon him sure sounds like an obstruction of justice, doesn't it?
