The House subpoenas Kushner and several other officials. Not that any of this will matter of course, as they'll just ignore them and not show up like the rest of Trump's minions.

https://www.cnn.com/2019/07/11/polit...ena/index.html

Quote:
The House Judiciary Committee on Thursday broadened its investigation into President Donald Trump and possible obstruction of justice, authorizing subpoenas to a dozen individuals that included the President's son-in-law, Jared Kushner.

The committee also authorized subpoenas to current and former Trump administration officials related to the "zero-tolerance" immigration policy that led to the separation last year of migrant families who crossed the southern border illegally.

The vote was approved on party lines, 21-12.
Quote:
In addition to the subpoenas related to the panel's obstruction investigation, the resolution approved Thursday authorized the committee to subpoena for documents and testimony related to the "zero tolerance" immigration policy, the detention of children and families and discussions of presidential pardons to Homeland Security officials.

This is probably not going to be a surprise to anyone paying attention, but it's being reported in leaked diplomatic cables that Trump unilaterally abandoned the Iran Nuclear Deal, and screwed over the entire EU and his own intelligence and military services, because he had a personality problem with Obama.

Trump decided to kill years of diplomatic efforts, nearly sacrificed hundreds of US soldiers lives, against the advice of the EU, UN, IAEA, CIA, and nearly plunge the US into another multi-trillion dollar war, just so he could spite a more successful and loved president that Trump had determined was a threat to his fragile ego. Trump is most definitely the most petulant and insecure man-child to have ever been elected to office.

There is also no strategy with Trump at all that would benefit the US but to maintain his own ego, make himself rich, and to serve Putin.
Quote:
Donald Trump abandoned the Iran nuclear deal to spite Barack Obama, according to a leaked memo written by the UK's former ambassador to the US.

Sir Kim Darroch described the move as an act of "diplomatic vandalism", according to the Mail on Sunday.

It says the memo was written after the then Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson appealed to the US in 2018 to stick with the nuclear deal.

Under that agreement Iran agreed to limit its sensitive nuclear activities.

It would also allow in international inspectors in return for the lifting of crippling economic sanctions.

However, President Trump did not think that the deal went far enough.

The newspaper reports that after Mr Johnson returned to the UK from the US, Sir Kim wrote that President Trump appeared to be abandoning the nuclear deal for "personality reasons" because the pact had been agreed by his predecessor, Barack Obama.

The British ambassador is said to have highlighted splits amongst US presidential advisors and that the White House did not have a "day-to-day" strategy of what to do following withdrawal from the deal.

The paper reports that Sir Kim wrote a memo to Mr Johnson, saying: "The outcome illustrated the paradox of this White House: you got exceptional access, seeing everyone short of the president; but on the substance, the administration is set upon an act of diplomatic vandalism, seemingly for ideological and personality reasons - it was Obama's deal.

"Moreover, they can't articulate any 'day-after' strategy; and contacts with State Department this morning suggest no sort of plan for reaching out to partners and allies, whether in Europe or the region."

Hiw many democratic congresswomen were born in other countries (particularly non-Western ones)?

I'm not entirely sure how that absolves him of a) literally telling someone to "go back to your own country", b) missing that this doesn't change the fact that the US isn't above scrutiny, or c) most unboudtedly, someone who immigrated at 10 would have had 0 part in their home country's dysfunction.

I hear a lot of things, wandering the countryside, but I have no idea what an Opposing Platform for Chuds (TM) is, and I'm afraid to type it into Google.

That would be the perfect twitter comeback, comparing the current US government to a pineapple dictatorship.

Think of an oroboros made of #### given flesh, spiraling to a chaos of pepes, forever, running Twitter code from 2008.

That is Gab.

If Trump was a democrat the republicans would be calling for impeachment on these racist comments alone.

Was this intentionally incoherent babble or modern slang? I suppose it is both?

Pretty much deafening silence from the GOP so far. Is there a more soulless, craven and unprincipled organization in the western world?

Meanwhile Pence did an interview today saying the Democrats are responsible for the debacle at the border.

Neither. Ouroboros is ancient, the name for the symbol of a snake eating it's own tail. It is an endless loop. Pepe is Pepe the frog a web comic character that racists stole, the creator killed the character in retaliation. And the last bit is a dig at old coding sucking.

I think the vast majority of sci fi shows have an episode called "Ouroboros"

I honestly cannot tell anymore if Trump is actively trying to get impeached or he knows that the other side is too timid for them to do anything about him. They have enough ammo. Like way more than required.
