I think the boat has sailed on Trump's "mandate of Heaven" (though because I'm Jewish, I'm not sure that Heaven isn't just a metaphor for eternity and a higher power: our half of the Bible, plus the Talmud, doesn't mention Heaven or Hell, just "the World to Come at the End of Days," which is not an individual afterlife but an inclusive one far off in the unspecified future. We also don't concede Satan has any power, especially after he tricked Adam & Eve and got himself booted out of the angels; our concept of "salvation" is not from eternal damnation but of being delivered of earthly woes & perils).

Several pundits today are saying that though every "Stepford Senator" who has commented on Trump's pulling troops out of the Turkey-Syria border has absolutely condemned it, none of them have made any allusion to "the i-word." But of course, Mango Moron is using that word with abandon: Tweeting that certain members of Congress should be "impeached." (Hint--even if by some parallel-universe logic they were worthy of removal from office, they can't be impeached, but only censured and stripped of their committee assignments...the latter by their own party's leadership. As if...).

Those same pundits are positing that for the GOP Senators, silence may be the safest choice. Condemn Trump and risk getting primaried by his increasingly ignorant, bigoted, armed but motivated base; defend him and--especially those in tight reelection races come 2020--lose the general election to a Democratic opponent.

And I'm getting increasingly dismayed by Biden's indecision, debate gaffes (and disconnect from contemporary culture) and--as Bob despairingly suspects--early signs of dementia (though nowhere nearly as manifest as You-Know-Who's). He's way up in the polls in SC (41-22 over Warren), and ahead--just outside the margin of error--in WI. He handily trounces tRump in head-to-head matchups, but the rest of the top echelon lead him more narrowly, w/in the margin of error. Just read an article in today's Vanity Fair online that the Democratic donor class is getting uneasy and hoping to find an "alterna-Biden." Some enthusiastically back Warren, but though she'd make a great President, they privately fear that she'd lose the center of both parties and be a disastrous candidate. Others posit that Bennet or Bullock would be perfect candidates...but they're polling at zero. Buttigieg could pull it off, but it's a very, very unlikely scenario. Blacks don't trust Harris because of her draconian record as a county prosecutor before becoming the A.G. of CA; Bernie is out of the running--no way he can rehab from a heart attack and double stenting angioplasty and handle the rigors of the campaign trail. Bill Bradley had only A-fib--not a heart attack nor even angina--back in 2000, but to him that was enough to leave politics for academia. My ideal scenario would be a Biden-Klobuchar ticket: she could tackle the rhetorical and campaign-schedule "heavy lifting," and send a tacitly reassuring message that should Biden falter in office, she'd be a viable successor.

One thing that Bob heard yesterday on CNN: Hillary Clinton should step in as the party's savior. No way--yes, she's the most qualified of them all, but progressives detest her as a corporatist who took too many states for granted in 2016, as do a lot of centrists & independents--the latter citing their distaste for her as their reason for switching to Trump. Were she to run, they'd hold their noses...and vote for him again. I'd rather see Gore come out of retirement.

Hope in the future --somewhat, but I'll admit I'll need to work on it. How does 24 hrs. become so AMAZING? Read on the way here that tRumps move is the latest ( maybe ) desperation ploy to try and stave off the impeachment. Adam Kinzinger (R) from my state, Illinois says the Dems. may be jumping the gun on impeachment and he needs to hear more. Apparently he was MIA when HIS president casually owned up to extorting Ukraine. Then again the whole point of tRump and company is to turn white into black and vice-versa. Well, I do think maybe the 'bridge' too far where tRump is concerned, may have come through the Kurds. I do understand that the orange weasel has done a pretty good dodge in the mine fields so far, but he is a desperate man and nothing spells the possibility of huge mistakes like desperation. He not only doesn't like having impeachment on his resume I'm sure he doesn't want a jail sentence there either and that is hanging over his head like a very full storm cloud.

Ananda I nearly fell off my chair at 'Madate of Heaven crock per Pat Robertson. I happily leave out the word sentient in front of the Robertson name. As well Ruth and others, Robertson's god as well at many of the R's is certainly not mine. The God I know doesn't stoop to the skullduggery and other heathen behaviors that I've noted of the current evangelical crop.

BTW. I have much respect for Joe Biden but like others worry about the age/mental slowing issues raised. I thought the minute I heard heart attack and Bernie in the same sentence that it was over for him period. We do need younger people in this role because even if okay at the beginning, the role of President is, when done correctly, mentally and physically grueling. Of course, I will stand behind whomever gets the D. nomination and hope not to have strong or any misgivings for that matter. Hopefully we will have at least one woman going in, and I do like the Biden/Globuchar pairing.

White House Declares War on Impeachment Inquiry, Alleging Effort to Undo Trump's Election ImagePresident Trump with the American ambassador to the European Union, Gordon D. Sondland, in Brussels last year.President Trump with the American ambassador to the European Union, Gordon D. Sondland, in Brussels last year.CreditCreditDoug Mills/The New York Times

By Nicholas Fandos, Peter Baker, Michael S. Schmidt and Maggie Haberman

  • Oct. 8, 2019Updated 5:53 p.m. ET

WASHINGTON — The White House declared war on the House impeachment inquiry on Tuesday, announcing that it would not cooperate with what it called an illegitimate and partisan effort "to overturn the results of the 2016 election" of Donald J. Trump.

In a letter to House Democratic leaders, the White House said the inquiry violated precedent and President Trump's due process rights in such an egregious way that neither he nor the executive branch would willingly provide testimony or documents, a daring move that sets the stage for a constitutional clash.

"Your unprecedented actions have left the president with no choice," said the eight-page letter signed by Pat A. Cipollone, the White House counsel. "In order to fulfill his duties to the American people, the Constitution, the Executive Branch, and all future occupants of the Office of the presidency, President Trump and his administration cannot participate in your partisan and unconstitutional inquiry under these circumstances."

The letter came hours after the White House blocked the interview of a key witness, Gordon D. Sondland, the United States ambassador to the European Union, just hours before he was to appear on Capitol Hill.

Read the White House Response to the Impeachment Inquiry

In a letter to House Democratic leaders, the White House counsel called the House's impeachment inquiry illegitimate.

Mr. Trump, defiant as investigators dig further into his efforts to pressure Ukraine to find dirt on his political rivals, ridiculed the inquiry as spurious, signaling even before the release of the top White House lawyer's letter that he planned to stonewall Congress, an act that could itself build the case for charging him in an impeachment proceeding with obstruction.

"I would love to send Ambassador Sondland, a really good man and great American, to testify," Mr. Trump wrote on Twitter Tuesday morning around the time Mr. Sondland was to appear, "but unfortunately he would be testifying before a totally compromised kangaroo court, where Republican's rights have been taken away."

[Catch up on all the day's news here.]

Earlier on Tuesday, House Democrats said they would regard the president's stance as obstruction. Representative Adam B. Schiff, Democrat of California and chairman of the House Intelligence Committee, said the administration's refusal to allow Mr. Sondland to appear was "strong evidence" of "obstruction of the constitutional functions of Congress, a coequal branch of government."

Mr. Schiff told reporters that the State Department was also withholding text messages Mr. Sondland had sent on a private device that were "deeply relevant" to the inquiry. He later indicated the House would issue a subpoena for his testimony and the messages.

"The American people have the right to know if the president is acting in their interests, in the nation's interests with an eye toward our national security, and not in his narrow personal, political interests," Mr. Schiff told reporters. "By preventing us from hearing from this witness and obtaining these documents, the president and secretary of state are taking actions that prevent us from getting the facts needed to protect the nation's security."

The decision to block Mr. Sondland from being interviewed was delivered at the last minute, after the ambassador had already flown to Washington from Europe, and lawmakers had returned from a two-week recess to observe the questioning.

Trump administration lawyers and aides have spent days puzzling over how to respond to the impeachment inquiry, and the abrupt move suggested that the president's team has calculated that he is better off risking the House's ire — and even an impeachment article focused on the obstruction — than setting a precedent for cooperation with an investigation they have strenuously argued is illegitimate.

The strategy, if it holds, carries substantial risk to the White House. Privately, some Republicans had urged the White House to allow witnesses like Mr. Sondland to appear, in order to deflate Democratic accusations of a cover-up and offer a public rationale for the president's actions toward Ukraine. Now, some Republicans worry, Democrats have more fodder to argue publicly that Mr. Trump has something to hide.

Mr. Schiff said the Intelligence Committee, working with both the Foreign Affairs and the Oversight and Reform panels, would continue its work regardless. But beyond issuing a subpoena for Mr. Sondland, the chairman did not detail how he might seek to crank up pressure on the White House to comply, and the standoff may create a quandary for Democrats who had hoped to move quickly in extracting crucial evidence and decide in short order whether to push forward on impeaching Mr. Trump.

Speaker Nancy Pelosi said it was too early to know whether Democrats might draft an article of impeachment based on the obstruction issue, akin to one adopted by the House Judiciary Committee in the 1970s impeachment proceedings against Richard M. Nixon.

"The president is obstructing Congress from getting the facts that we need," Ms. Pelosi told reporters in Seattle, where she was holding an unrelated event. "It is an abuse of power for him to act in this way."

The Evidence Collected So Far in the Trump Impeachment Inquiry

The status of the documents and witness testimony being collected by congressional investigators.

Mr. Sondland has become enmeshed in the burgeoning saga of how the president sought to push the Ukrainians to investigate former Vice President Joseph R. Biden Jr., his son and Democrats. Although Ukraine is not in the European Union, Mr. Trump instructed Mr. Sondland — a wealthy hotelier and contributor to his campaign — to take a lead in his administration's dealings with the country.

Democrats consider him a key witness to what transpired, including whether the president sought to use a $391 million package of security assistance and the promise of a White House meeting as bargaining chips to essentially bully President Volodymyr Zelensky of Ukraine into digging up dirt on the Bidens and other Democrats.

Mr. Trump's allies on Capitol Hill rushed to his defense on Tuesday and condemned Mr. Schiff and the Democrats for running what they described as an unfair process, though they made clear they thought Mr. Sondland would have been a helpful witness for the president's case.

"We were looking forward to hearing from Ambassador Sondland," said Representative Jim Jordan of Ohio, the top Republican on the Oversight and Reform Committee, adding that Republicans believed Mr. Sondland would "reinforce exactly" what lawmakers and aides heard least week from Kurt D. Volker, the former American special envoy to Ukraine. Mr. Volker told investigators he knew of nothing improper between the two countries, although he turned over a trove of documents that raised further questions.

"But we understand exactly why the administration, exactly why the State Department has chosen to say, 'Look if it's going to be this kind of process …,' " Mr. Jordan added.

And in the Senate, Mr. Trump's allies shifted into high gear to orchestrate a counteroffensive on his behalf. Senator Lindsey Graham, Republican of South Carolina and the chairman of the Senate Judiciary Committee, said he would invite Rudolph W. Giuliani, Mr. Trump's personal lawyer who was deeply involved in the pressure campaign on Ukraine, to testify before his panel. Mr. Giuliani led the push to enlist the Ukrainians to help investigate the business dealings of the Bidens and a conspiracy theory that Ukraine meddled in the 2016 election.

"Given the House of Representatives' behavior, it is time for the Senate to inquire about corruption and other improprieties involving Ukraine," Mr. Graham said.

Democrats did not flinch at the suggestion, and Senator Dianne Feinstein of California, Mr. Graham's Democratic counterpart on the committee, said she looked forward to questioning "Rudy Giuliani under oath about his role in seeking the Ukrainian government's assistance to investigate one of the president's political rivals."

It was unclear what the Trump administration's position would mean for other witnesses expected to testify in the House investigation. Marie L. Yovanovitch, the former ambassador to Ukraine, is currently scheduled to appear on Friday. The State Department has also missed a subpoena deadline to hand over documents the House has demanded related to Ukraine.

Mr. Sondland interacted directly with Mr. Trump, speaking with the president several times around key moments that House Democrats are now investigating, including before and after Mr. Trump's July call with Mr. Zelensky. The president asked Mr. Zelensky in that conversation to do him "a favor" and investigate the Bidens and matters related to 2016.

Text messages provided to Congress last week showed that Mr. Sondland and another senior diplomat had worked on language for a statement they wanted the Ukrainian president to put out in August that would have committed him to the investigations sought by Mr. Trump. The diplomats consulted with Mr. Giuliani about the statement, believing they needed to pacify him in order to allow the United States to normalize relations with the Ukrainians.

Mr. Sondland was also involved in a back-and-forth with top American diplomats to Ukraine over text last month that suggests some senior State Department officials believed that Mr. Trump may have been holding up the security aid as leverage for getting its leaders to conduct the investigations Mr. Trump wanted.

"As I said on the phone, I think it's crazy to withhold security assistance for help with a political campaign," William B. Taylor Jr., a top American official in Ukraine, wrote in one exchange in early September.

After receiving the text, Mr. Sondland called Mr. Trump, who asserted it was false.

"Bill, I believe you are incorrect about President Trump's intentions," Mr. Sondland wrote in the messages. "The President has been crystal clear no quid pro quo's of any kind."

Mr. Sondland added: "I suggest we stop the back and forth by text."

There have been conflicting accounts of Mr. Sondland's views, however. Senator Ron Johnson, Republican of Wisconsin, told The Wall Street Journal last week that Mr. Sondland had told him in August that the release of the aid was contingent upon Ukraine opening the investigations. Mr. Johnson said he was alarmed and asked Mr. Trump if there was a quid pro quo involved. The president adamantly denied it, he said.

Robert D. Luskin, Mr. Sondland's lawyer, said in a statement that as a State Department employee, his client had no choice but to comply with the administration's direction. He said Mr. Sondland was "profoundly disappointed" he was not able to testify, and would do so in the future if allowed.

Another day of insanity. Then again, Trump is not having good times. E.J. Dionne says ( I tried to c and p, but it wouldn't come through ) that in reality Trump is credited with a bigger following than he likely actually has. I think a lot of people know that but it is awfully hard to appreciate when you see some of the things that have happened. I do know that many people did go for 'a businessman' rather than a 'politician'. Now they see what they have in this businessman and Dionne sees lots of regret. Same goes for manufacturing voters, farmer voters etc.

The last two ( coming fairly close ) Trump disasters are really getting attention and it is all pretty negative. I hope I'm right but those who are speaking out for
Trump at the moment sound of insanity. Bringing up Capt. Kangaroo. If this is the best you have I hope you can't hear yourself. Also sending word that you don't intend to do your duty to oversight, because the Constitution has it wrong and you don't have too.

People want rid of this traitor to our Constitution and he continues to feed need and reason to do so every time he makes another move. I actually don't so much fear he will win -- more I FEAR a win by heavy cheating and gross manipulation. If not enough of those things can happen, I think Trump would lose and it wouldn't be close. He has mainly destroyed the R. Party along with so much else. There are a lot of R's ( Dionne ) who just won't be able to give in to the idea of having the humiliation and degradation go on any longer. Not every R is ready to give up on the Constitution. Not every R. wants to allow a loose-cannon lunatic to keep all of us on the edge of annihilation.

If the vote were private in the Senate...….

I have posted some memes there w/o saying anything since there are those who love to argue and seem VERY ready where tRump and company are concerned. Are they just keeping the partisan party noise up or are their hearts tuned that black and dark. Mind you -- many of these people are ones I grew up with, and attended school with and in some cases exchanged letters with after I left home. I know this same thing has happened to most of you. I hope some of them at least -- even if it has to come at the 11th. hour will have an epiphany and can open their eyes.
