The efforts to go after Ukraine Ambassador Marie Yovanovitch dates back to March, according to a tweet highlighted by Washington Post reporter Greg Sargent.

“We need more ⁦@RichardGrenell’s and less of these jokers as ambassadors,” tweeted Donald Trump Jr. March 24, 2019.

Yovanovitch was slated to stay on through 2020, but was abruptly called back in late April 2019.

The link he shared was to a conservative site promoting the ousting of Yovanovitch, calling her “Obama’s Ambassador.”

According to the piece, Yovanovitch had been trying to undermine Trump. Fox News host Sean Hannity had Joe diGenova on to trash the ambassador.

“The current United States ambassador Marie Yovanovitch has bad mouthed the President of the United States to Ukrainian officials and has told them not to listen or worry about Trump policy because he’s going to be impeached,” diGenova said.

Other Fox News pundits quickly followed with their own segments on Yovanovitch. Laura Ingraham specifically mentioned that ousted Rep. Pete Sessions (R-TX) may have taken bribes to encourage him to oppose Yovanovitch publicly.

“I wanted to bring to your attention an interaction that I recently had with individuals regarding the current U.S. Ambassador to Ukraine,” a letter from Sessions’ began. “I have received notice of concrete evidence from close companions that Ambassador Yovanovitch has spoken privately and repeatedly about her disdain for the current Administration in a way that might call for the expulsion of Ms. Yovanovitch as U.S. Ambassador to Ukraine immediately.”

“I kindly ask you consider terminating her ambassadorship and find a replacement as soon as possible,” Sessions added.

It has now been discovered that two associates of Rudy Giuliani were funneling money into super PACS to support Sessions along with others who took up the cause to find dirt on the Biden family in Ukraine.

‘Comparing yourself to terrorists?’ Internet cracks up at Trump saying dead 9-11 hijackers got more justice than him

Published

on

President Donald Trump quoted Fox News host Mark Levin that left many scratching their heads. Levin, who has a show on Sunday evenings, claimed that the terrorists from Sept. 11 got more due process than the president.

The claim was a curious one because, as many on Twitter noted, it's not often that the president of the United States compares himself to a terrorist. Secondly, the 9-11 hijackers all died in the attack, as they were on the planes that crashed into the buildings and into a Pennsylvania field.

Trump is known to quote Levin frequently, though the citations often make the president look worse.

"We also realize that the problems of racial injustice and economic injustice cannot be solved without a radical redistribution of political and economic power."

—Martin Luther King Jr., 1967

This Martin Luther King Jr. Day comes as moderate Democrats, falling in line behind former vice president Joe Biden, are warning that the party risks re-electing Donald Trump if it nominates too radical a candidate for president — by which they mean someone like Senators Bernie Sanders or Elizabeth Warren.

Harvard law professor Laurence Tribe catches Alan Dershowitz in humiliating hypocrisy: ‘He’s not to be trusted’

Published

on

Harvard Constitutional law professor Laurence Tribe called out President Donald Trump's lawyer, Alan Dershowitz, Sunday on Twitter, noting that his opinions seem to evolve depending on who he's defending.

Dershowitz is on a kind of press junket for the president, defending him in various media appearances. The former lawyer to Jeffrey Epstein is handling Trump's defense as it pertains to the abuse of power. Dershowitz thinks that charge has no basis in law. In fact, impeachment trials aren't actually legal proceedings, they're political proceedings, because the Justice Department claimed that Trump can't be indicted under the law while he's president.
