This is the most shameful chapter in American history to date, of that there is no question. The Attorney General is Donald Trump’s personal stooge and the Department of Justice is complicit in a cover up. CNN:

The Department of Justice revealed in a court filing late Friday that it has two dozen emails related to President Donald Trump’s involvement in the withholding of millions in security assistance to Ukraine — a disclosure that came just hours after the Senate voted against subpoenaing additional documents and witnesses in Trump’s impeachment trial, paving the way for his acquittal.

The filing, released near midnight Friday, marks the first official acknowledgment from the Trump administration that emails about the President’s thinking related to the aid exist, and that he was directly involved in asking about and deciding on the aid as early as June. The administration is still blocking those emails from the public and has successfully kept them from Congress.
A lawyer with the Office of Management and Budget wrote to the court that 24 emails between June and September 2019 — including an internal discussion among DOD officials called “POTUS follow-up” on June 24 — should stay confidential because the emails describe “communications by either the President, the Vice President, or the President’s immediate advisors regarding Presidential decision-making about the scope, duration, and purpose of the hold on military assistance to Ukraine.” […]
Senate Democratic Leader Chuck Schumer said in a statement on Saturday, “Every single Republican Senator voted to endorse the White House cover-up of these potentially important truth-revealing emails. Make no mistake, the full truth will eventually come out and Republicans will have to answer for why they were so determined to enable the president to hide it.”
This is not how America operates. This is how a banana republic works. The Republican-led Senate votes to acquit Trump on Wednesday, while the Justice Department is sitting on inculpatory evidence, waiting to get their boy off before they release it. William Barr has been compared to Roy Cohn but a more apt comparison would be to Benedict Arnold.

All of them might as well admit everything, since none of them are going to do anything about it.

It is amazing how often important information comes to light just after it was most needed. For example, why on earth did Parnas wait until now to assert that Cippolone was in the Ukraine loop? He could have told us when Cippolone was first announced as being a member of Trump’s defense team.

An idea for an instructive article would be a compendium of all the times some sort of material information came out just a little too late. It has happened so many times over the last three years.

And who is in charge of the OMB now? I’m sure they’re backing Himself.

The day will come when tRump’s “neurological event” will not be a TIA or a petit mal seizure but an entire full-blown stroke. It looks to me like he is “showering emboli” into his cerebral circulation. Maybe the Republicans are hoping he will just drop dead before the election. Then they can blame everything on tRump and figure their idiot constituents will still vote for them.
