Nancy’s Last Nerve

Trump just can’t help himself. If he had moderated his behavior, he could have made it to the 2020 election without dealing with a formal impeachment. Instead he removed all of the moderating forces around him and tries to run the government like it was his business. The result is: House launches formal impeachment inquiry into Trump.

National security lawyer warns that Trump is spinning Ukraine as cover:

Bradley Moss, who works for the firm representing the whistle-blower urged everyone to stop and figure out where all the leaks have come from. Hint: Not the whistle-blower.

A lawyer for the firm representing the whistle-blower, Moss had some warnings for Ali Velshi’s viewers.

“Well, the president’s certainly trying to frame a narrative here and there’s certainly been the selective leaks of what the substance of the disclosure may or may not have been. There’s been no leak from the whistle-blower and from the legal team representing the whistle-blower confirming any of the details of what actually was the full universe of claims outlined in that whistle-blower complaint and that validated by the inspector general of the intelligence community,” Moss pointed out.

Or in simpler terms, all of the stories out there haven’t been from the people who actually know what’s in the substance of the complaint. They’ve come from current and former administration officials, who are always quoted as anonymous sources.

“People need to wait and they need to let all of the information to come out before they render judgment on what happened here,” he added.

Trump and company are presenting the Ukrainian extortion attempt as the entire issue, but Mr. Moss is hinting that there is more in the actual complaint. It would appear that strong-arming the Ukrainian government to create a scandal about the Biden family may be the least of the sins cited by the whistle-blower.
