I think we know the answer already.
45 is using his office for his own personal benefit, not the good of our nation. https://twitter.com/repadamschiff/status/1181620150946148353?s=21
It says 45 & $ondland are obstructing justice in plain sight.
Hidden or not, obstruction is an impeachable offense.

You’re looking swell, Rudy.
You’re still going
You’re still crowing
You’re still doing wrong. https://www.axios.com/rudy-giuliani-federal-criminal-investigation-ukraine-7a8c7c42-e518-4a56-8340-b999a47c8bd8.html
I can tell, Rudy.
You’re still colluding, still deluding
Still doing wrong
We can see, Rudy,
Rudy is going to jail
Rudy is going to go jail real soon!
With apologies to Louis Armstrong et al
Experts say Donald Trump may have unlawfully solicited help from a foreign national during his call with Ukraine President Volodymyr Zelensky.https://www.opensecrets.org/news/2019/09/trumps-ukraine-call-raises-questions-about-campaign-finance-rules-on-foreign-interference/
Clearly there is a conspiracy to obstruct justice.
Between 45, Deutsche Bank, and I’m thinking some intermediary. Hello, Ambassador.

But seeing as how Rudy is a key player in obstructing, WTH... https://twitter.com/j2dumfounded/status/1183188849628827650?s=21
Is this why Bolton quit? https://twitter.com/joycewhitevance/status/1183939919095443458?s=21
“Giuliani’s a hand grenade who’s going to blow everybody up,” Ms. Hill quoted Mr. Bolton as saying during an earlier conversation.”
I guess Bolton didn’t want to get hit with the schrapnel.
He works for Firtash. He has for a long time. https://twitter.com/andrewsweiss/status/1183846003784519681?s=21
In addition to #IgorAndLev, we had the arrest of Andrey Kukushin in San Francisco.
Such is the nature of transnational organized crime.

Foreign Investor-1 made his fortune building up Siberian Cement into the largest cement company in the world, along the way giving himself & managers loans that went unpaid. Mobligarchs gotta mob.

It’s just that in Russian the “ё” has a long “O” sound that is better transliterated as “YO”.

The president’s attorney (paid by Ukrainian associates of a wanted mobligarch) went to Ukraine, leaned on the new president of Ukraine to give up dirt on Biden’s son, or 45 would withhold aid had Congress approved, despite warnings from Fiona Hill & maybe Bolton.
Shokin was not a white hat.

#IgorAndLev approached him as an intermediary to the former prosecutor general — for Rudy — it seems. https://twitter.com/christopherjm/status/1187475488337317890?s=21
Go to hell Rudy,
You just smell Rudy
You are going to die in jail
Golly gee, Rudy,
I can tell, fella,
You are going to go to prison
For a long, long time.
Karma’s a bitch, bubbee
Golly gee Rudy
You have brought this on yourself
Terrorism is going to

Let’s look back. Recall my suggestion that the withdrawal of troops from Donbas by Ze! was the PRO QUO.
Allow me to refresh your memory https://twitter.com/j2dumfounded/status/1175287246812934144?s=21
This was released October 1; without further research we don’t know exactly what time the agreement was struck in Minsk.
11 September • Ze! agrees to #SteinmeierFormula
12 September • 45 releases aid to Ukraine.
Hence QUID PRO QUO
I’m old enough to remember when the Republicans were not the party of feeding at the mobligarchy’s trough.
Let me repeat
September 11 the Ukrainians agree to the plan Putin has wanted for years to manage the occupied area
September 12 POTUS & his personal attorney Rudy allow the United States to send Ukraine long-delayed aid.
I know your editor won’t allow it in a work of fiction, but what a story it would make.
Right now it’s merely conjecture. https://twitter.com/davidhertz6/status/1175128036750123014?s=21
John Solomon was getting his stream of horse pucky from Lev Parnas of #IgorAndLev.
Igor is just the sidekick of the dynamic duo, it appears.
Lev Parnas, recently indicted for foreign influence in U.S. elections, collaborated closely with The Hill’s John Solomon to fuel spurious allegations involving the Bidens and Ukraine.https://www.propublica.org/article/how-a-veteran-reporter-worked-with-giuliani-associates-to-launch-the-ukraine-conspiracy

But let’s just say it’s never too late on Twitter to KOB, as Winston Churchill would say. #KOB #IgorAndLev
Well suffice to say I crossed that Rubicon some months ago.
Here, my friends, some nuggets:
“Later in the hearing, when a lawyer for Mr. Parnas asked that house arrest conditions be loosened for his client, Mr. Zolkind said Mr. Parnas was still under investigation for additional crimes.”
Not yet, anyway.
“Federal prosecutors are also investigating whether Mr. Giuliani broke lobbying laws in his dealings in Ukraine, people familiar with the inquiry have said.”
What type of yacht is that, anyway? Is that San Pablo Bay? Hey tweeps, help a resister out here.
It’s back to the Gray Lady & FARA — which is bigly my hobby horse, and Mueller’s too, it seems — is mentioned.
“Federal investigators are examining potential violations of criminal laws governing lobbying in the United States on behalf of a foreign govt.
Here is an excerpt from her testimony.
Zolkind stuns the troll lawyer Lefcourt, by saying NO CLASSIFIED MATERIALS WILL BE USED TO PROSECUTE THE #FraudGuaranteeFour
Oh, so scrumptious, the schadenfreude!
And that my friends, is the end of this story.
Except for one tiny detail, revealed weeks ago, in this selfsame thread on #IgorAndLev.
— Dumfounded #KOB
