John Bolton's attorneys consulting with lawmakers about possibly cooperating with the impeachment inquiry

Mod: Johnny B. was there to witness almost all of Trump's recent Ukranian crime wave. If he testifies there won't be much anyone still loyal to Benedict Donald will be able to do except gnash their teeth and wail.

John Bolton's attorneys consulting with lawmakers about possibly cooperating with the impeachment inquiry (CBS News link): Attorneys for former National Security Adviser John Bolton are consulting with lawmakers about possibly cooperating with the impeachment inquiry, CBS News' Paula Reid reports. Bolton was one of the officials on the July 25 phone call between Mr. Trump and Ukrainian president Volodymyr Zelensky, and witnesses have testified that Bolton was so concerned by the efforts to press Ukraine to investigate President Trump's rivals that he called it a "drug deal."

Mr. Trump fired Bolton last month. Mr. Trump tweeted at the time that he asked for Bolton's resignation because Mr. Trump "disagreed strongly with many of his suggestions," although Bolton insisted he resigned.

On October 16, former National Security Council Director for European Affairs Fiona Hill testified in a closed-door meeting. According to The New York Times, Hill said that Bolton was very concerned about the work Rudy Giuliani, Gordon Sondland and Acting White House Chief of Staff Mick Mulvaney were doing. The Times reported that Hill said Bolton told lawmakers "I am not part of whatever drug deal Sondland and Mulvaney are cooking up."

While it's unclear exactly what Bolton was referencing, CBS News reported in September that at least one week before Mr. Trump's call with Zelensky, Mr. Trump instructed Mulvaney to hold off on releasing millions in military aid for Ukraine.

Hundreds of thousands expected to join ‘historic nationwide mobilization’ on eve of Trump impeachment vote (Raw Story link): A coalition of progressive advocacy groups on Friday announced plans for a “historic nationwide mobilization” across the U.S. on the eve of the House’s yet-to-be-scheduled vote on articles of impeachment against President Donald Trump.

Hundreds of thousands of people are expected to take to the streets around the country, said the “Nobody Is Above the Law” coalition, which includes MoveOn, Public Citizen, Indivisible, and Stand Up America, as well as more than a dozen other organizations.

“Protesters will gather in front of the district offices of House members as the lawmakers finalize their positions and at U.S. Senate offices as senators prepare for a likely trial,” the coalition said in a statement. “Protesters will call on their representatives to uphold the Constitution and their oaths of office by supporting Trump’s impeachment.” Nearly 120 events have already been planned in more than 80 cities in anticipation of the House impeachment vote.

  3. Donald Trump Has a Big Problem in the Senate

    A resolution meant to be a show of solidarity by Republicans with the president has instead become a sign of weakness.

    Trump will miss National Anthem at World Series

    President Donald Trump plans to attend Game 5 of the World Series on Sunday ... Trump, who has yet to throw out a ceremonial first pitch since taking office, plans to arrive after the Washington Nationals and Houston Astros are underway and leave before the final out ...

    While it will be Trump’s first time attending a major league game as president, he has ties to the sport. Trump was a high school player with enough talent that, he has said, he drew the attention of big-league scouts.

    His coach, Col. Ted Dobias, told Rolling Stone in 2015 that Trump “thought he was Mr. America and the world revolved around him.”

    The Nationals, who decide on ceremonial first pitches, made clear that the president was not asked to take the mound. That honor instead will go to a notable Trump critic, celebrity chef Jose Andres, whose humanitarian work has been widely acclaimed.

  9. GOP lawmaker condemns Trump over 'human scum' comment

    Republican Rep. Adam Kinzinger (Ill.) criticized President Trump's recent tweet calling "Never Trump" Republicans "human scum."

    "To call anybody human scum is beneath the office of the presidency. You can't say that, right? You're the president. You have different standards," Kinzinger said in a CNN interview.

    "Sometimes you'll hear people say, 'Well this congressman said this once,'" he added. "Yeah, nobody should say anything like this. But I think there's a different level when you're the president of the United States. You have a different responsibility, and that's why I'm outspoken about it."

  13. Company with ties to Trump's brother received a $33 million government contract, prompting complaint from competitor

    The lucrative government contract, to provide security for federal courthouses and cell blocks, went to CertiPath, a Reston, Va.-based company that since 2013 has been owned in part by a firm linked to Robert S. Trump, the president’s younger brother.

    After the contract was awarded, an anonymous rival bidder filed a complaint alleging that CertiPath failed to disclose that “one of the President’s closest living relatives stood to benefit financially from the transaction,” according to a copy of the July 22 complaint letter obtained by The Washington Post.

  15. Trump’s White House will likely pull out all the stops to keep John Bolton away from Democrats

    Recent reports suggest that former National Security Adviser John Bolton may be called to give evidence in the impeachment inquiry against President Donald Trump.

    According to The New York Times, officials expect that the Trump administration will do everything they can to block Bolton from testifying.

    “According to the testimony given to Congress so far, Bolton was a central figure in trying to prevent any delay in releasing foreign aid to Ukraine,” said former George W. Bush DOJ official John Yoo. “I cannot see how any responsible investigation would not seek Bolton’s appearance.”
