70% minus approximately 20% (nonDem supporters). Let's just stipulate

that there are 20% of the voters who think trump did something wrong with Ukraine but don't think he should be removed.

How do we get to them? What could we pile on to Ukraine to get them on board?

So, there really isn't a REAL transcript of the July 25th call?

Or is there?

Always assumed that there was a transcript (call it Transcript 1). That they used voice recognition software and then cleaned that up as you would if you used your cell phone mic to create a text message.

Then under pressure thought trump got Barr to do more clean up to create a Transcript 2 that he released.

Always assumed that Transcript 1 was on the secure server and that we had subpoenaed it and would eventually see it.

Per WSJ..
He (Morrison) said he approached White House lawyers after the call ended to ask whether the rough transcript should be closely guarded to prevent its contents from becoming public. The transcript of the call, which was later released by the White House after questions were raised about the conversation, was ultimately placed on a secure server typically reserved for national-security secrets.


This sounds like there is really only one. In fact if you click on the link with the WSJ story you will see the one that dingbat released.

Sherrod Brown wasn't MY savior. Just saw

him on taped Maher show...

Sure many love him. Just thought he was "business as usual" no new thinking whatsoever.

Solid Dem...but not a "shaker-upper". And he said he really didn't want it SO much to pursue it.

Trump may be the first person at any level in human history

that actually committed an impeachable offense DURING an Impeachment hearing!!! (Witness tampering)

What the hell universe are we in where that isn't appalling and crazy to every human in the world.

I love Dem strategist Adam Parkhomenko!

@adamparkhomenko

If you want a funny take on things every day, sign up for his daily newsletter.

Excerpt:

11.17.19

Happy Sunday. There are 351 days until the presidential election. Another embarrassing loss for Trumpland, when Trump gave Rudy’s goons a “secret mission” and Barr is a danger to the U.S.

Note: Hey, everybody. How was your Saturday? Ours was great, but we realized that taking a day off from doing this newsletter is a great way to gauge just how much awful stuff Trump is doing on a daily basis. It’s like every day the president of the United States takes a giant shit on the country and we take a big shovel and scoop it out and that’s TBS.

So now that we’re taking Saturdays off, that means an extra day of presidential shit piles up. So like we haven’t even talked about Roger Stone getting the book thrown at him. We haven’t talked about Trump pardoning murderous scum.

And we haven’t talked about this crazy dumb motherfucker trying to intimidate a witness WHILE SHE WAS TESTIFYING. Or the lesson that witness taught this nation about courage. And public service. And doing what’s right. (Don’t worry. We’ll find a way to bring all this patriotic good person talk back to the parable about feces piling up. Because hey, if there’s one thing we know people like, it’s spending part of their Sunday talking about trump taking shits on the country.

And you know you like picturing giant pies as if they came from some kind of human-elephant-cow hybrid. And we really want to dig in on the shoveling part and... ya know what, this has gotten a little out of hand. We’re just gonna stop right there. Hope everyone has a great Sunday. Except, ya know, the shitter.)

Note two: About Trump’s unexpected trip to Walter Reed yesterday for the first “phase” of his physical, yeah, they’re obviously lying. There’s a lot that’s off about this. But there’s a lot that’s off about Trump. He’s always seemed like sick piece of shit to us, so we weren’t surprised to hear something might be wrong. We encourage you all to pray for the president’s health. The outcome you might choose to pray for, however, is totally up to you.

Synergy in cooking

I was thinking that in cooking, maybe incorporating as much synergy as possible could make some fabulous cooking.

Two or more things together where the sum is greater than the parts. It came to mind believe it or not when I recently had the probably long forgotten Liptons dry onion soup mixed with sour cream for a dip. The combo of those two things makes a delicious sum.

Others ?

Mashed potatoes and gravy
Fresh tomatoes, basil, olive oil and salt
Fish and chicken with lemon and butter

Hot brown sugared bacon with cayenne
Roast pork with brown mustard

Question about legal/hearing strategy...

I would venture a guess that the witnesses today had maybe 2-3 hrs? of valuable testimony.

Why do we keep people so long? Why would you do that, as a trial/hearing strategy?

Strikes me that it frees up time for opposition to riff. Why wouldn't you say, these witnesses have a finite involvement? And zero in on exactly what they can offer that is pertinent? In my mind too, if you don't do that you run the risk of voters tuning out and the key points they offer being lost?

Not dissing anyone just don't get it. Not looking for "it was great" comments but legal strategy perspectives

Are you a raging psychotic Democrat? Trump tweets

Trump's tweet, tonight 10:45p. I "think" he is quoting Hannity?
https://twitter.com/realDonaldTrump/status/1194458296146702336?s=20


“The circus is coming to town. The corrupt, compromised, coward & congenital liar Adam Schiff Show on Capital Hill, brought to you by his raging psychotic Democrats & the top allies in the Media Mob. Everything you’re going to see in the next two weeks is rigged....

This is a phony showtrial. There is zero due process, none. It is yet another fraudulent hoax conspiracy theory. It is another Witch Hunt. This is what the Socialist Doemocrat Party has become. There’s not one thing the Democrats have done in the past 3 years except try...

to hurt Donald Trump and we, the people that support him. The Left has never accepted the results of the 2016 Election. They never saw this coming. This is not just about President Trump. They hate everyone he is representing.”
