White House scrambles to slow impeachment push as explosive secrets spill behind closed doors
CNN ^ | Oct. 16, 2019 | Stephen Collinson

The White House is launching a new effort to slow the speeding Democratic impeachment push, but its noncooperation strategy is being constantly thwarted by a daily stream of explosive secrets being spilled behind closed doors on Capitol Hill.

Current and former officials are painting an ever more damning picture of a wider than originally perceived scheme by President Donald Trump and his crew to pressure Ukraine that they warned could amount to a trampling of US law.

Vice President Mike Pence launched a new effort Tuesday to bolster White House hopes of stalling the House inquiry long enough for Trump to turn public opinion against it. He refused to turn over documents related to Trump's now notorious call with the President of Ukraine on July 25.

Good. That is exactly what they should be doing: fight the Dems' unjustified, politically motivated impeachment efforts.

CNN.

I was going to laugh this off as more Fake News. But when I read "Current and former officials ...."

Well then. That's it for Trump. Yes sir. He should resign immediately. Today. Right now.

Fake news.

If its “explosive” why don’t Democrats want to hold a formal impeachment vote?

After CNN got outed by Project Veritas, it doubles down on fake news. Quite telling, indeed.

CNN = JOKE NEWS. If they aren’t speaking they aren’t spinning. This is part of their Hail Mary play.

Sure.... explosive secrets....but we can’t reveal what they are because they’re secret. Yes, we believe that.

Oh sure. We can trust CNN to give us the truth about the Star Chamber secret hearings of enemies of the President, most of them Obama holdovers. There is no opportunity for the accused to face his accusers and smacks of the old USSR justice system.

another Commie fake news article...
there’s nothing that would guarantee PDJT’s re-election (and the election of dozens of new R congresscritters/senators and governors) than this patently falsified “impeachment” bullsheit going forward!

The only thing ‘explosive’ around CNN is Zucker’s explosive diarrhea over the Veritas videos...

The "secrets" would end the second the House took an official vote.

That's why Nancy will never have one.

Explosive secrets behind closed doors?

Sounds like the usual desperate Dem circle jerk orgy.
A lot of howling and political porn followed by Dem Committee group nocturnal emissions, never to be made the subject of due process?

Explosive Secrets in the White House?

Yes. Someone had a bad day in the restroom. “Don’t go in there”.

And don’t go telling anyone either.
