Trump Shocked It’s Ukraine “Thing” that Led to Impeachment

A really shocking admission tonight from a source inside the White House. Apparently Trump is bewildered that it was the Ukraine matter that led to his impeachment.

Wait, what?

“It’s the Ukraine thing that’s done it”?

What the fffffff, what the hell does that mean!!

Why don’t we strip ourselves of all political analysis and all the stuff we know about Trump and the facts and that. Let’s just apply normal adult understanding of such a statement.

Trump is “bewildered.” Which, all of us would agree means stunned, not comprehending it.

“That it was Ukraine that led to his impeachment.” Well, damn, that sounds like someone who may well have considered impeachment possible, maybe anticipated, at some point.

“Frankly” – the person’s being honest here, and perhaps a little embarrassed.

“He’s a little surprised it was the Ukraine thing that has done it.” That’s the killer quote here. It practically screams: “If you knew all the other shit out there you wouldn’t know how to spell Ukraine because you’d be picking your brain up off the floor.”

It hits even harder when you think about all those things we just kinda know, and then put that statement beside those things. It drills a pit in your stomach. One can’t help but take that statement as an admission that there is so much worse shit out there, such that Trump can’t believe it was  this little ole’ mistake, this little nothing burger, it’s this stupid shit that is going to loom throughout history as the base for impeachment.

That is stunning.

And so damn scary.

We end the day as we started it, with abject fear as to what Trump and the Republicans are doing behind the scenes to abuse the ever living hell out of the laws that are supposed to oversee this stuff.

That quote, what a quote. I hope it reverberates through the media for some time.

****

Peace, y’all

One other thing is the murder of Mr. Khashoggi. With crappy, disgusting human, kushner.

The Dem’s should be using private investigators to turn up some of this stuff. Government agencies have been rendered useless by these fascist.

While I take your point, and it has its attractions, it also presents some dilemmas. Would it be taxpayer funds used to compensate the investigators? How would the investigators to be hired be vetted? Would campaign finds be used (I mean, it”s pretty important to get all the Dems into office that we can)?

Frankly, I don’t really think any elected Democrats should be involved. These rich guys running for President should jointly hire Fussion GPS or someone just as good and make it very public what they are doing. Let every Republican on this planet know their dirty little crimes may (or may not) be uncovered. For the moment the federal justice system is not much more than a tool for these facsist dictators. As Republicans are complicit in Trump’s abuse of power and have complete control over his removal, he is in FACT a dictator. Not wana-be dictator. Actual dictator.

They’ve been using government agencies because they have access private investigators never get.

That was the first thing that came to my mind as well. The second one has to do with his abandonment of the Kurds in Syria. But the list is likely longer than we can imagine at this point.

All this tells me is that it’s the little things that mess you up the worst.

The monsters we fear are usually not the ones that materialize. In this case, I heartily agree with your assessment, Jason. Compared to the other stuff, this is small potatoes. They really need to dig up this other stuff.

Well, considering all the murders and all the other various illegal “crime boss” things that could’ve been laid directly at Al Capone’s feet, it was “simple” tax evasion that done him in.
Maybe if Trump had just released his tax records back in 2016, he too could’ve been done in for screwing over the IRS and he’d never have to have worried about the “Ukraine thing.”

Look at all the shit Al Capone did. And yet it was income tax evasion that finally got him a room at the grey-bar hotel.

I agree that Trump is aware that he has has done impeachable things, but I do not think his comment necessarily implies there’s stuff we do not know about. There may very well be, but Trump could just as easily be saying that he is surprised that one of the many incidents we do know about was not “the thing.”
