trump is obviously guilty of something...


One-time U.S. presidential advisor on Russia and Europe to the White House National Security Council Timothy Morrison testified in his opening statement to the House Intelligence Committee Tuesday afternoon that “the United States aids Ukraine and her people so they can fight Russia over there and we don’t have to fight Russia over here.”


In his less than two page opening statement, Morrison says, “I feared at the time” how President Donald Trump’s July 25th phone call and “its disclosure would play in Washington’s political climate. My fears have been realized.”

“Every day that the focus of discussion involving Ukraine is centered on these proceedings … is a day when we are not focused on the interests Ukraine, the United States, and Western-style Liberalism share,” he went on to state.

While the testimony of Jennifer Williams, aide to Vice President Mike Pence, and National Security Council staffer Lt. Col. Alexander Vindman Tuesday morning mostly eschewed policy discussions, that was not the case with the afternoon statements of special envoy to the Ukraine Kurt Volker and NSC aide Morrison. Morrison briefly served on the NSC  from August 2019 when he took over from Fiona Hill, until he resigned on October 31, 2019.

burisma sounds like a disease...

Already the president has named three people he wants grilled, starting with Hunter Biden and his lucrative gig on the board of Burisma, a corrupt Ukrainian energy company, while his father was vice president.

Some sample questions Hunter Biden can expect:

  • Is it true you were discharged from the Navy for cocaine use months before being named to Burisma in 2014?
  • Do you speak Ukrainian?
  • What do you know about energy exploration and markets?
  • How many board meetings did you attend?
  • Is it true you were paid more than $3 million over five years?
  • How much more?
  • Did you discuss the job with your father?
  • Did you ask your father to intercede in Ukrainian politics to help Burisma?

Joe Biden is already showing the strains, blasting Sen. Lindsey Graham for asking the State Department for documents relating to Joe Biden’s calls with Ukraine’s then-president and his own documented efforts to oust a prosecutor.

“Lindsey is about to go down in a way that I think he’s going to regret his whole life,” Joe Biden told reporters.

no malarkey?...

US presidential hopeful Joe Biden has launched his new campaign slogan: "No Malarkey".

Key points:
  • Joe Biden's choice of words has drawn accusations that he is out of touch
  • The 'No Malarkey' battle bus will crisscross the key battleground state of Iowa
  • Mr Biden trails a number of his key rivals in the state


But the 77-year-old Democrat's choice of words is fuelling more commentary about whether he is too old to be picked to try to beat Donald Trump at next year's election.

Mr Biden's 'No Malarkey' bus tour is currently crisscrossing Iowa, which hosts the first presidential nominating contest on February 3.

Public opinion polls show Mr Biden's one-time double-digit lead in the state has disappeared, and he is now fighting fast-rising Pete Buttigieg, the 37-year-old mayor of South Bend, Indiana, and progressive candidates US Senators Elizabeth Warren and Bernie Sanders for top spot.
