How about a lying congressman, like lying Adam Schiff, who rigged an impeachment?

The senator said he will take and break an oath. If he does, that's a no-no. Voting for a president, impeached or otherwise, isn't,

Impeached President Trump has not nominated an ambassador for Ukraine since he and Mr. Pompeo forced Ms. Yovanovitch to leave. The president has left vacant many ambassador positions around the world, presumably as part of a wider goal of cutting the operations of the State Department. Critics say that has contributed to the rudderless, chaotic nature of foreign policy under Mr. Trump.

Newly revealed emails show that the Office of Management and Budget repeatedly ignored warnings from the Pentagon that President Donald Trump's decision to freeze a nearly $400 million military-aid package to Ukraine was illegal.

The emails were released to the Center for Public Integrity following a Freedom of Information Act lawsuit, but the Justice Department redacted significant portions.

On Thursday, the national-security blog Just Security published unredacted versions of the emails that revealed the lengths to which the Justice Department went to conceal the Defense Department's concerns about the Ukraine aid freeze.

Kentuckians Have Finally Had About Enough of Mitch McConnell

What’s the print version of Donald Trump being booed at the World Series? 

The poll showing that Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, the president’s most stolid defender, is down to a 18 percent job approval rating in Kentucky. Only 37 percent in the Public Policy Poll said they would vote for him again next year.

There is a Russian/fossil fuel faction in higher echelons of the Republican Party. McConnell's ex-staffers lobbied for Russian money for development projects in Kentucky. Blavatnik, a Russian oligarch, gave millions to McConnell, Rubio and Graham. McConnell argued for Keystone XL even though the majority of the metal was coming from a Russian company. As Craig Unger documents, Trump is tied to the Russian Mafiya through his decades-long real estate money laundering and the Russian petrostate via his loans through Deutsche Bank.

On Thursday, Just Security published the full content of several emails between White House and Pentagon officials that the Justice Department had originally released last month — but, as it turns out, with some pretty important information redacted. The unredacted emails showed that the order to withhold the military aid came straight from Mr. Trump — “clear direction from POTUS to hold,” wrote Michael Duffey, a top budget official — even as Pentagon officials repeatedly questioned the legality of the hold and pushed for the aid’s release. By the late spring of 2019, the Trump administration had already approved aid packages to Ukraine almost 50 times, not once holding the help up over concerns about corruption.

"And three months later, Rusal announced plans for an extraordinary partnership with Bouchard’s company, providing $200 million in capital to buy a 40 percent stake in the new aluminium plant in Ashland, Ky. — a project Gov. Matt Bevin (R) boasted was “as significant as any economic deal ever made in the history of Kentucky.”

"The Rusal-backed project is one of several issues fueling broader scrutiny of McConnell’s posture toward Russia and its efforts to manipulate American voters.

In 2016, McConnell privately expressed skepticism about the intelligence reports on Russia’s activities in the election and resisted a push by the Obama administration to issue a bipartisan statement condemning the Kremlin. Last month, he blocked consideration of election security bills that have bipartisan support, despite warnings from the FBI and the intelligence community about the risks of foreign interference in the 2020 election."

He isn't called Moscow Mitch for nothing...

Nancy Pelosi did not call McConnell the grim reaper for nothing either. McConnell agrees.

I am making no plans to learn Russian. I have made a little effort to learn Spanish (Espanol). But I think I can dispense with that as soon as the wall is completed.

Have you considered building a bunker with 2 foot thick cement walls where you can feel safe from Mexicans, Canadians, fags, dykes, commies, socialists, liberals, homeless folks and pretty much anybody who doesn't sing at church on Sundays? You could even fill it up with a few dozen guns in case the crazy liberals start confiscating the estimated 393,000,000 small arms in America (46% of the world wide total).
