    This is not news. Also, it's NOT FAKE. This has been talked about for MONTHS now. 24/7 news has to reconsider the platform, because this repetitive banter is creating social and economic monsters. 👻 💩 👻

    Throughout his life he has employed blackmail as a regular technique to exploit anyone who was unlucky enough to engage in business with this worthless individual. He probably learned this with his father who with his son had dealings with organized crime. They even used the same lawyer that the mafia used.

    Strange how career officials who have everything to lose still give accounts that could jeopardize their future under the Trump administration. It must be because they're part of the so-called Deep State. Either that or they've had enough of Deep Shit.

    I live in New York. None of this surprises me at all. All of us already knew he was a con man who never follows the law. We also knew that he couldn't even be trusted with a potholder. Didn't you understand when he refused to show us his tax returns? Didn't you understand when you found out that every woman who married him had to endure him getting other women pregnant? Every one of his children are bastards except for one. What about his current wife, Melania hearing about the hush money payment to the porn star? Anyone who put any degree of trust in this man was temporarily a fool when they voted for him. You can redeem yourself because you can see now. Right?

    The POTUS has the sole power to make TREATIES and he can make any deal he wants, even a quid pro quo. Only the House can Impeach , and that means the Whole House must vote to initiate any attempt to accuse a sitting President of "High Crimes and Misdemeanors" . The Intelligence Committee has no power to impeach , it was invented strictly to deal with CLASSIFIED SECRET INFORMATION, not a formal accusation against the sitting President. And the Judicial Committee is the only place where impeachable offenses are examined.

    The only aid that was going to be withheld was by BIDEN... on camera no less. He bragged about how he would withhold Aid if the investigation against his son wasn't dropped. But hey, this is par for the course for the Satanist that reverse everything literally. If Hillary sells uranium to Russians ithe story for 2 years is that Trump is dealing with the Russians, yet she accuses everybody of dealing with the Russians because in truth she has been all along along with Joe Biden. If you believe this fake news you're completely lost and lazy for getting your "information" from a proven fake news source.
    What's actually happening is the Democrates are holding SECRET ILLEGAL impeachment meetings and the Republicans aren't having it.
    Truth.

    So nobody notices the similarity between this "story" and what Biden actually did and was recorded laughing talking about doing it? Which of course was the holding of a billion dollars in Ukrainian aid unless they fire their government prosecutor. Where in the transcript did Donald inform the president of Ukraine that he was going to withhold government aid? Not a trumper... just not a believer in straight up bullshit propaganda.
