Via RT.com, Feb. 5, 2020:
The final vote on the first charge (abuse of power) was 52-48, with Mitt Romney (R-Utah) crossing the aisle to vote “guilty” alongside the Democrats. The vote on the second charge (obstruction of Congress) was 53-47, with Romney returning to the fold. It would have taken 67 votes to convict Trump on either count.
UKRAINEGATE Part 1 – A Not So Solid Prosecutor
The title is an essay by Max Parry, Dec 2, 2019, at his home website at medium.com; he’s kindly given me to permission to repost it. He draws in many more elements and celebrity figures than I’d ever known factored in to make his case; it’s says it’s a 12 minute read but it took me longer in my dotage.
Much of what happened at the Paris Summit is being reported a bit differently, and sometimes rather enigmatically, and will include ‘breaking news’ toward at the end. This may be the War and Peace report (both literally and figuratively) on the Summit, but in my defense, I’ll ask you to consider that it’s the nexus of proxies for NATO/US Ukrainegate/and Putin’s Russia.
I’ll start with: ‘Normandy Four agree to ‘stabilize’ eastern Ukraine in Paris communique’, Dec. 9 2019, RT.com
“Prior to the news conference, the leaders said in a joint communique that they agreed to “immediate measures to stabilize the situation in the conflict area in east Ukraine.” Previous attempts by the ‘Normandy Four’ group to simmer down the conflict have achieved mixed results at best.
The pink tide needs to be stemmed for good, as with VZ, Brazil, Cuba, Ecuador, and so on; nor can the sole Indigenous President (and a peasant to boot!) on the planet be allowed to win this election. Note: this a$$hat’s threats came on Oct. 21, with only a portion of the votes announced! Yeah, we know what the US and its client states will do; it’s all part of the CIA handbook, isn’t it? Criminalize the pinko’s ‘regime’, sanction/sanction/sanction and eventually openly endorse the opposition leader, as with Juan Guaido:
Yes, even further than this: (smile)
In his Sept. 29, 2019 ‘CIA sets terms for Democrats’ impeachment inquiry into Trump’s crimes’, Joseph Kishore reports in part:
“The scandal over the Ukraine call has been instigated by the intelligence agencies. It was a CIA agent in the White House who prepared the report that is the basis of the inquiry. It was the decision by a group of Democrats drawn from the military and intelligence agencies that led Pelosi and Schiff, both with longstanding ties to these same agencies, to shift from their previous opposition to impeachment.
I’ll only focus on the Pepe’s Hong Kong portion, as I’ll bring other viewpoints as well. A recent reader asked me to say that my (limited thoughts and content) are in violet, hyperlinks turn blue at c99%; all else is in black. This is longish, but given the current anti-China realpolitik afoot, this is a very big deal in my estimation. Feel free to weigh in, even with contrasting sources and opinions. Dagnabbit, I’d forgotten to see if Joe Biden’s blaming the protests on the Russians on Twitter.
