Damning timeline links ex-‘Hill’ columnist directly to Giuliani’s smear campaign against Yovanovitch

Published

on

John Solomon, a former columnist for The Hill, has been linked directly to Trump attorney Rudy Giuliani’s smear campaign against ousted American ambassador to Ukraine Marie Yovanovitch.

As flagged by Courthouse News reporter Adam Klasfeld, phone records in House Democrats’ impeachment report show that Solomon spoke with indicted Giuliani henchman Lev Parnas ten different times between the dates of April 1st and April 7th. During that time, phone records indicate that Parnas also spoke with Giuliani 16 different times.

Then, on April 7th, Solomon published a column that accused Yovanovitch of thwarting investigations into alleged “corruption” in Ukraine as a way to protect Democrats.

Then, one day after Solomon’s report was published, Rep. Devin Nunes (R-CA) had phone calls with Giuliani, Parnas and Solomon.

Solomon, who has since left The Hill, has denied being part of any coordinated smear campaign against Yovonovitch and has claimed that he was simply reporting on a story.

"And, he did get back from Europe just recently and I know -- he has not told me what he found, but I think he wants to go before Congress and say, and also to the attorney general and the Department of Justice," Trump said.

GOP governors are refusing to do Trump’s bidding and ducking him on the campaign trail: report

Published

On Saturday, Maggie Haberman of The New York Times profiled how President Donald Trump is having less luck whipping Republican governors into line than Republican senators, including governors who arguably owe their election to his support.

"In Florida, Mr. Trump’s aides helped save the flailing candidacy of Ron DeSantis in the 2018 Republican primary, and then the general election," wrote Haberman. "Also last year, in Georgia, Mr. Trump helped pull Brian Kemp over the finish line in both the primary and the general election. In both cases, Mr. Trump’s advisers implored him to stay out of the primaries, and he agreed to — only to surprise his aides by jumping in to support Mr. DeSantis and Mr. Kemp."

Courts have avoided refereeing between Congress and the president — Trump may change all that

Published

President Donald Trump’s refusal to hand over records to Congress and allow executive branch employees to provide information and testimony to Congress during the impeachment battle is the strongest test yet of legal principles that over the past 200 years have not yet been fully defined by U.S. courts.

It’s not the first test: Struggles over power among the political branches predate our Constitution. The framers chose not to, and probably could not, fully resolve them.
