“The interference includes…pressuring a foreign country to investigate one of the president’s main domestic political rivals”

By Jack Cluth    09.27.19

Over the next few days, I suspect we’re going to hear a battalion of Donald Trump’s enablers- in Congress and the Right-wing Echo Chamber- bemoaning that Democrats are still, after all this time, still trying to bring down Trump by any means necessary. They’ll keen shrilly about how the transcript of Trump’s phone conversation with the Ukranian President Volodymyr Zelensky exonerates him utterly and completely. If you read the whistleblower’s complaint and the transcript, you’ll know that nothing could be further from the truth.

Trump and his apologists are becoming increasingly desperate about protecting their fiefdom…and it’s beginning to appear as if their position and power may be in mortal peril. It’s clear that Trump used the phone call to pressure President Zelensky to find dirt on Joe and Hunter Biden…and that he used the promise of American military aid to squeeze Zelensky. Several things- (including egregious abuse of Presidential power)- are clear from the transcript, among them:

– Trump was “using the power of his office to solicit interference from a foreign country” in order to bolster his prospects in the 2020 Presidential election…and the White House tried to cover it up.

– “The interference includes, among other things, pressuring a foreign country to investigate one of the president’s main domestic political rivals.” The complaint implicates Rudy Giuliani, Trump’s personal attorney, as well as Attorney General William Barr.

– The White House moved to “lock down” the transcript of the phone call by putting it on a more secure computer system normally reserved for sensitive national security information, NOT politically sensitive information.

– According to the whistleblower, this was not the first time phone transcripts were moved “into this codeword-level system solely for the purpose of protecting politically sensitive — rather than national security sensitive — information.”

Trump’s actions posed significant risks to U.S. national security and constituted a “serious or flagrant problem, abuse, or violation of law or Executive Order.

– Several U.S. officials believed the call was predicated on Zelensky’s willingness to “play ball” and cooperate with a scheme intended to enhance Trump’s political prospects.

– Officials were concerned that Giuliani’s efforts represented the “circumvention of national security decision-making processes to engage with Ukrainian officials and relay messages back and forth” between Ukraine’s leadership and Trump.

It seems clear that not only is there a tremendous amount of smoke, but several U.S. officials can almost certainly to the fact that there’s an actual fire burning. The whistleblower’s complaint is not merely the ranting of a disgruntled government employee; that would be easy to debunk. No, there are witnesses to the events in question (and probably a a paper or electronic trail), and those witnesses can speak to the truth of what Trump said.

Over the next few days and week, I’m firmly convinced we’ll find out even more about how Trump has been misusing the power of the Presidency for his own financial and political benefit. If that isn’t sufficient to impeach him, I can’t begin to imagine what might be.

Rob not the poor, because he is poor: neither oppress the afflicted in the gate:
For the Lord will plead their cause, and spoil the soul of those that spoiled them. Pr. 22:22-23
