‘Imagine Our First Date’

“Mayor Pete” Buttigieg appeared on MSNBC’s “Morning Joe” Wednesday, and by the end of the interview co-host Mika Brzezinski told viewers on-air her phone was blowing up with positive messages from people impressed with the Democratic presidential candidate from Indiana. (You can watch the interview below).

Compared to most of the announced Democratic presidential candidates Pete Buttigieg may suffer from lack of name recognition but that is changing, and rapidly.

For example, his response to the horrific anti-Muslim hate crime terror attack massacre in New Zealand last week that left 50 people dead was unique in two ways.

First, his published statement was an outpouring of love to the Muslim community in the city he was elected to serve as Mayor.


It received  a whopping 70,000 “likes.”
And second, he was the first and only presidential candidate to link the terror attack to white nationalism, and condemn it.

Published

On Tuesday, in the wake of testimony from several witnesses in the impeachment hearing that broadly implicated EU Ambassador Gordon Sondland in improper backchannel foreign policy, New York Times columnist Wajahat Ali suggested that Sondland is in "tremendous trouble" — and that no testimony he could give tomorrow will get him out of this mess:

No. He will be trying to save himself. The perjury plus multiple stellar witnesses paint a damning portrait. He's in tremendous trouble. https://t.co/CxN5w0EErb

Even the Republican witnesses make Donald Trump look like a depraved criminal

Published

on

The second half of Tuesday's hearing offered something new in the Donald Trump impeachment inquiry: Witnesses called by the Republican minority on the House Intelligence Committee. It's understandable why Republicans would want these two men.

One of them was Tim Morrison, a former National Security Council aide who is among the few people directly exposed to Trump's famous phone call with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky who claims to believe there was nothing wrong with it. The other was Kurt Volker, a former special envoy to Ukraine, who appears to have been a major actor in Trump's extortion scheme in that country. Indeed, Volker was deemed one of the "three amigos" — along with Energy Secretary Rick Perry and Trump donor/EU ambassador Gordon Sondland — who Trump entrusted with Ukrainian relations as he exerted increasing pressure on the country's leaders to give into his extortion scheme.

Impeachment: Trump’s ‘hearsay’ defense just crashed and burned

Published

on

In the panoply of contradictory and incoherent defenses of Donald Trump, a favorite of Republicans has been to harp on the claim that witnesses to Trump's extortion scheme against Ukraine were all "second-hand" or "third-hand." This has always been confounding, as the official summary readout of the famous phone call between Trump and Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky shows Trump clearly conditioning military aid and U.S. support on Zelensky giving a public boost to Trump's conspiracy theories about former Vice President Joe Biden and other Democratic leaders. The witnesses so far have simply affirmed what the written record demonstrates amply.
