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.

The former Hill columnist now works as a contributor to Fox News.

Trump’s path to re-election ‘smashed to splinters’ as his only achievement is swallowed up by the pandemic: report

Published

In a piece for Politico, Ben White writes that Donald Trump was going into November's election with only one achievement under his belt -- a healthy economy -- and now he has nothing left to run if he wants to be re-elected.

With all of the gains made in the stock market long gone due to the coronavirus pandemic and the collapse of oil prices, White claims that the president's campaign strategy lies in tatters.

"The fundamental pillars of Donald Trump’s presidency — a hot economy, strong job growth and a rocking stock market — are all being smashed to splinters by the ravaging coronavirus, which has shuttered much of the nation and now officially ended a streak of 113 months of job gains dating back to the end of the Great Recession a decade ago," he wrote before noting the explosion of unemployment claims -- over ten million so far -- that has the country reeling.

Strong signs that judges will increasingly decide how 2020 elections are run during the coronavirus pandemic

Published

on

The jaw-dropping conclusion of a federal court hearing on April 1 about Wisconsin’s statewide elections on April 7 was no April Fools’ joke. U.S. District Judge William Conley said the state’s Democratic governor and Republican-led legislature had failed to put their citizenry’s health first by not postponing the statewide election in a pandemic.

“There’s a hurricane coming!” Conley fumed from the bench, interrupting Douglas M. Poland, a lawyer representing the Wisconsin Alliance for Retired Americans, League of Women Voters of Wisconsin and four citizens who sued the state. “You can’t even give me a case where a federal judge stopped a state from stupidly holding an election when most of the voters were not going to go to the polls because there’s a hurricane coming!”
