Apparently Rudy was planning a trip out of the country as well to join up with these guys.

You know, I love the show, but these recent twists are just so obvious and over the top. I mean maybe a third rate criminal would try this shit, but this part of the show is supposed to be about the President's own lawyer for God's sake!

I mean it's just not believable at this point. They need new writers.

Not that I think Murdoch is exactly a morally upstanding person, but I would have loved to have seen exactly how he told Barr to fuck off. Whatever his other flaws, Murdoch isn't the type to tow somebody else's line for no good reason.

Also, they need Fox News way more than Fox News needs them (not a lot - they can make do with any bunch of Republicans, if we're being honest).

Well, just hold on there. It's not like there's a video of the three of them smiling into the camera in the lobby of the Trump hotel, and saying "I'll see you in Ukraine soon!"

Oh, that’s no biggie. Everybody in NYC knows Rupert’s pad. It’s a cool little studio right on the edge of SoHo, and if you’ve had too much blow during a night on the town, he loves it when you drop in and have a few shots of his tequila to smooth you out. He’ll throw on some Miles and chill with ya.

Barr is now Trump's enforcer?

It began with Trump grabbing pussies, but now the Republicans are jumping sharks. Very kinky, but not in a good way with regard, or lack thereof, toward the American people and their Constitution.

Per Yovanovitch From CNN
Quote:
“With respect to Mayor Giuliani, I have had only minimal contacts with him—a total of three that I recall. None related to the events at issue,” she said, according to her prepared remarks. “I do not know Mr. Giuliani’s motives for attacking me. But individuals who have been named in the press as contacts of Mr. Giuliani may well have believed that their personal financial ambitions were stymied by our anti-corruption policy in Ukraine.”
https://www.cnn.com/politics/live-ne...-19/index.html

So apparently she’s not testifying behind closed doors?

Well it sounds like it is closed door but a copy of her opening statement was released.

Are 'Rudy' and 'rude boy' synonymous? I always thought Rudy was just his name, but maybe it's more like the 'rude boys' in Desmond Dekker's 007 (Shanty Town)?

Trump loses appeal to stop House subpoena of his tax documents

Quote:
In a 2-1 ruling, the US Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit upheld a lower court ruling saying the firm must turn over eight years of accounting records.

The opinion is a strong signal that the White House's letter earlier this week refusing to cooperate with the impeachment probe without a full House vote authorizing it would not hold up in court....

"The courts lack the power to invalidate a duly authorized congressional subpoena merely because it might have been 'better [if]...the full House' had specifically authorized or issued it," the court wrote. "Unless and until Congress adopts a rule that offends the Constitution, the courts get no vote in how each chamber chooses to run its internal affairs."

Supposedly, we have reached a small trade deal with China.

https://www.washingtonexaminer.com/p...ted-trade-deal

I am skeptical of the specifics.

Soybean tariffs were set to pressure Trump voters. Trump needs those voters massively. That China would give them away for nothing seems unlikely.

I suspect that we'll find out what the Adminstration is actually trying to give away in return, soon.

No; that would be another gift from China to Old Orangestain; the question is what gifts he's giving them in return.

For starters, I assume he never heard of any Hong Kongians storming the beaches at Normandy....

This is the same administration that recently insisted talks with North Korea had been good discussions that totally didn't end in failure, despite accomplishing nothing and being characterized by their own envoy as "bad and sickening" on his way the hell out of Dodge?

Yeah, think I'll wait for third-party confirmation.

Also, (I can't follow the insanity too closely) but I don't think the made up allegations against Hunter include embezzlement.

Well that's what I mean and what I keep asking people about: why the fuck should American law enforcement care about someone breaking a law in another country? Even if it's an American?

And if American law enforcement doesn't care about it, why the fuck should Americans?

I think the point is that Hunter isn't accused of any actual crime I'm aware of. All he did was take a seat on the board of a foreign company, which realistically probably hoped that it would help sway American policy.

That he had no knowledge of the business isn't criminal - I think US boards end up with lots of semi-famous 'names' just so they can say that someone famous is part of their company. For example:
Quote:
Secretary Rice currently serves on the board of Dropbox; C3, an energy software company; and Makena Capital, a private endowment firm.
Seems unlikely that she has any sort of deep knowledge in all three of those diverse industries.

Recalling the Trump family trait of projecting, I can't help wondering if Eric just revealed something interesting about his own history.

(If Eric actually has embezzled from Dad---he hasn't held any real jobs, has he? so it would have to have been from DJT---what would Dad do about it?)

There's some specific crimes for which the answer is "yes", such as treason, but they're crimes against the US even if commited on foreign soil. If Hunter's foreign job was illegal just on account of being for a foreign company, a lot of despicable American elites are doing illegal jobs right now.

He gave a truthful account of the state of Homeland Security on live TV a week or two ago, basically noting that the entire agency has been decapitated to three levels deep and that as far as the security of the homeland is concerned, the country is flying blind and undefended.

I've been meaning to look up the actual interview.

On a side note, the principal component of Benedict Arnold's treason was to weaken the defenses of West Point so that it would be easy to take over.

There's some specific crimes for which the answer is "yes", such as treason, but they're crimes against the US even if commited on foreign soil. If Hunter's foreign job was illegal just on account of being for a foreign company, a lot of despicable American elites are doing illegal jobs right now.
One of the main Republican talking points seems to be that Hunter Biden's reported salary of "up to $50,000 a month" was inherently criminal. Speaking as a guy getting by on Social Security, a small stipend and the proceeds of a part-time job, Biden's generous wage kind of pisses me off, but I am unaware of any US law capping salaries earned while working for a foreign company. Long as he paid whatever taxes were required, we good.

I'm fairly certain that the US will imprison US citizens if they commit murder in another country.

Even if that other country isn't prosecuting them for it, or they are but there is no extradition treaty between the two countries?

I love in the discussions of his replacement that we have just abandoned the idea that in the United States, the Senate is supposed to be confirming nominees. Just another conservative principle thrown in the trash.

Rudy will flee the country in drag, like when Bani-Sadr left Iran.

Well, I'm not a lawyer, but I'm sure if I went to country X, that the US doesn't have an extradition treaty with, and killed people while live-streaming it, and then came back to the US, I would be arrested and tried for murder.

If not, that seems like a mighty big loophole.
