Trump's Impeachment Bombshells

Updated on November 16, 2019

The Ambassador to the Ukraine, Yovanovitch, and others, like Taylor and Kent, all have given strong testimony showing that POTUS acted with an abuse of power, at minimum. At worse, it shows corruption, secret back channels to get dirt on Biden, and extortion\bribery.

But other details have emerged. For instance, where did the seed idea to create a back channel to investigate Trump's main rival in 2020 election, where did the wacky idea that the Ukraine, not Russia, meddled in the 2016 election, where did the insane idea come from that the Democratic server was hidden in the Ukraine. Where did POTUS get these right-wing conspiracy theories from?

In her testimony, Yovanovitch, alluded to that the only person who would benefit from his chaos, is Putin. She went further suggesting that it is a KGB tactic to distract foes with disinformation that puts Russia in innocent light. The seed idea for all this may have been planted by Putin in their private, undisclosed, discussions. Just raising all these theories baited a gullible Trump. Trump, with the seed planted in his mind, over time, began to believe them enough to have Guiliani and his Russian friends (now indicted) to create the back channel to conduct the investigations. Trump also was baited into believing that the corrupt Ukrainian prosecutor was the opposite to what the US Ambassador and EU members knew. Trump was baited to believe that Biden did something wrong. All of these put Russia in a better position and light. They create chaos in the American political system and distract from in foreign affairs. With Trump believing it was Ukraine, not Russia, who meddled in the 2016 election, clears Russia from wrongdoing. Trump's Russian friends also may have reinforced these Putin talking points.

The Russian influence on American foreign policy in favor of Putin is exemplified by Trump's action in January 2019. The US Navy was going to sail into the Black Sea in a show of force. This was in opposition to the Russian seizure of Crimea, formerly part of the Ukraine. This operation was approved by John Bolton and was set to happen. However, when Trump heard about it, he immediately contacted Bolton and was told to pressure the USN to cancel the naval operation, Trump was afraid of angering Putin. This show of force in the Black Sea never happened.

Putin smiled then and continues to smile in Syria, where Trump suddenly withdrew American forces along the Turkish border and handed over American built bases there to Russia.

Anyone who does not think there is a Putin-Trump cooperation is not connecting the dots.

      Even if one is skeptic, you have to admit there is something suspicious going on with regards to Trump and Russia whether he is aware of it or not. For a POTUS to favor Putin to this level is mal administration and corrupt.

      Trump did invite Putin to come here. I think he gave it up due to all the suspicion people have of the both of them

      Also, trump is planning a trip to Russia on May Day.

      And he keeps all his meetings and talks with Putin secret.

      Not even recorded in USA archives.

      Like, huh?

      Maybe the idea came from Manafort, who had helped a pro-Putin candidate in Ukraine?

      He comes here, and pulls the same stunts in our election that he learned over there?

      Also coming from Ukraine was Tad Devine, who became Sanders advisor. And Jeff Weaver, who ran Sanders campaign, had also worked in Ukraine.

      I think they all worked together to triangulate Hillary’s campaign, smearing her from both ends. And, I’m sorry, but I believe Sanders camp gave or sold Hillary’s info to Putin. If you remember, they were caught cyber-perusing Hillary’s voting list for about 40 minutes.

      And we know a trump pal was giving data like this to the Russians.

      Now, they have another triangulator in Gabbard. She gets a lot of support from rightwingers, as did Sanders. If you recall, Sanders and Trump joined together in bashing Clinton last time around. “She’s unqualified”.

      And now, we see the malevolent attitude Gabbard has towards Hillary..... And shes a dem? Shyeahhhh

      And what about Pence? Why did Manafort push for him to be veep? Trump wanted Christie. Why did Pence get the job?

      And what were Sheriff Clarke and Donna Brazille doing in Russia together?

      At an NRA summit. And now she works at Fox News?

      And why did Some GOP members go to Russia on the 4th of July last year?

      This is all too weird, and doesn’t make sense as of yet. But I have no doubt the truth will come out.....

      The truth, the whole truth, and nothing but the truth.

      It will be up to us to believe it.

      What you have written does not have any facts. Mostly you base your arguments on conjectures. Maybe you have a bias against Putin. I don't feel that Putin and Trump are doing the Tango together. If it was so he would have invited Putin to the White House. That has not happened. Trump has also not visited Moscow which is again rarity for a US President. The simple answer is that Trump wants to win the election by hook or crook and for that reason he approched Ukraine to get some dirt on Biden. We all know the America president is a maverick. That about explains why he is going off on a tangent.

      Maybe it is a product of wishful thinking. We wish to believe our leaders would not betray our country.
