  • Vanity: Did Fiona Hill Lie In Testimony Today?

    Almost everyone so far has provided worthless hearsay as did Fiona Hill who left by July 19th before the phone call, but Morrison was listening in on the phone call and said he heard nothing illegal and declated in testimony along with Volker there was Quid Pro Quo, bribery or extortion. She though appears to have lied through her teeth as even left-wing publications like Politico and others have confirmed Ukraine's role in 2016 election interference despite her attempts today to downplay their role. At the very least she would have blatantly and shamelessly provided a False Choice if both...
  • Alexander Vindman condemned himself in his impeachment testimony

    The commander in chief ought to fire Lt. Col. Alexander Vindman, who serves on the National Security Council, for rank insubordination. That is the key take­away from Tuesday’s hearings in the Democratic impeachment push. Vindman, unlike other Democratic “star witnesses,” was at least on the July 25 phone call between President Trump and his Ukrainian counterpart, Volodymyr Zelensky, that set off the inquiry. But Vindman was unreliable and had questionable judgment, according to his own outgoing superior, Tim Morrison, the National Security Council’s senior director for European affairs.
  • Vindman Broke Chain of Command to Get Word Out of Trump-Zelensky Call

    Western Journal ^ | 11/19/19 | Randy DeSoto
    Army Lt. Col. Alexander Vindman testified on Tuesday that he bypassed his chain of command and went directly to the National Security Council’s legal counsel to raise his concerns about President Donald Trump’s July phone call with Ukrainian president Volodymyr Zelensky. The implication appears to be that Vindman had an agenda, which was only strengthened by his claim in his opening statement that Trump demanded Zelensky open an investigation into former Vice President Joe Biden and his son Hunter Biden, though according to the White House’s partial transcript, the commander in chief did no such thing. Republican Rep. Brad Wenstrup...

    Republicans sounded a celebratory note as House Democrats' impeachment inquiry wrapped up another day of public hearings Tuesday evening, saying the day's witnesses had served only to highlight fundamental problems in the case against President Trump. “Did anyone ever ask you to bribe or extort anyone at any time during your time in the White House?" House Intelligence Committee Ranking Member Devin Nunes, R-Calif., asked at one point in Tuesday's afternoon hearing. Former National Security Council (NSC) aide Tim Morrison: "No." Former U.S. Special Representative for Ukraine Kurt Volker: “No." Later, Rep. Elise Stefanik, R-N.Y., hit the same notes in...
  • Democrats Omit Exculpatory Information From Summary Of Tim Morrison Transcript

    Democrats on the House Intelligence Committee released the long-awaited transcript from senior National Security Council official Tim Morrison on Saturday, and immediately distorted it for the benefit of the anti-Trump media. It was a typical example of how Rep. Adam Schiff (D-CA) and his staff have tried to skew the fact-finding process in an effort to inflate public support for impeachment, believing few will read the lengthy transcripts for themselves. First, the committee withheld the transcript since October 31, only releasing it after the first public hearings began last week. Morrison’s testimony was rumored to be very good for President...

    Despite the focus of Congressional Democrats to push for the impeachment of President Donald Trump, a recent Monmouth University survey [link at URL] showed that Americans would rather have the election in 2020 decide the fate of the White House. An October 30 – November 3, 2019 poll showed that 59% of Americans surveyed agree that “if you want Trump out of office, it makes more sense to focus on next year’s election rather than go through an impeachment process now.” “Most Americans say that those who want to remove Trump from office would be smarter to focus on the...

    Washington — A top National Security Council official who listened to President Trump's July call with the president of Ukraine told lawmakers he "promptly" brought concerns about the call to White House lawyers, but did not think "anything illegal was discussed." Tim Morrison, the outgoing senior director of European and Russian affairs at the National Security Council, is testifying before committees leading the impeachment inquiry on Capitol Hill on Thursday. He has emerged as a central witness to the events at the center of the inquiry, particularly the administration's policy toward Ukraine. CBS News learned the substance of his opening...

    Some Republican defenders of President Trump fear White House lawyers are about to make a crucial misstep in House impeachment proceedings by not asserting executive privilege as Tim Morrison prepares to become the first current White House staffer to testify. Morrison, brought to the White House by deposed national security adviser John Bolton, is viewed with suspicion by many Trump allies, who are expressing concern that the "superhawk" may speak without restriction and offer his opinions about work on Ukraine policy issues. Two sources familiar with proceedings on Capitol Hill say the White House has not indicated that it will...

    Sen. Lindsey Graham, R-S.C., criticized a report by the New York Times that claimed President Trump "pressed" the prime minister of Australia for information to discredit the probe conducted by former Special Counsel Robert Mueller, calling it an "effort" to shut down Attorney General William Barr's investigation. "This New York Times article about Barr talking to Australia is the beginning of an effort to shut down Barr's investigation to find out how this whole thing started," Graham said on "Hannity" Monday. A Justice Department official told Fox News on Monday that Barr asked Trump to make introductions to foreign countries...

    The discussion was another instance of the president using American diplomacy for potential personal gain. President Trump pushed the Australian prime minister during a recent telephone call to help Attorney General William P. Barr gather information for a Justice Department inquiry that Mr. Trump hopes will discredit the Mueller investigation, according to two American officials with knowledge of the call. The White House restricted access to the call’s transcript to a small group of the president’s aides, one of the officials said, an unusual decision that is similar to the handling of a July call with the Ukrainian president that...

    Australia’s re-elected Prime Minister Scott Morrison once brandished a lump of coal in parliament, crying, “This is coal — don’t be afraid!” His surprise win in what some dubbed the “climate election” may have stunned the country, but voters should know what comes next in energy policy — big coal. Battered by extended droughts, damaging floods, and more bush fires, Australian voters had been expected to hand a mandate to the Labor Party to pursue its ambitious targets for renewable energy and carbon emissions cuts. Instead, Saturday’s election left them on course to re-elect the Liberal-led center-right coalition headed by...

    Australia has decided to formally recognize west Jerusalem as Israel’s capital, but won’t move its embassy until there’s a peace settlement between Israel and the Palestinians, Prime Minister Scott Morrison announced Saturday. Morrison said in a speech that Australia would recognize east Jerusalem as Palestine’s capital only after a settlement has been reached on a two-state solution. The Australian Embassy won’t be moved from Tel Aviv until such a time, he said. While the embassy move is delayed, Morrison said his government would establish a defense and trade office in Jerusalem and would also start looking for an appropriate site...

    Australian nationals convicted of terror offenses would be stripped of their citizenship if the government believes they are entitled to apply for residency from another country, Prime Minister Scott Morrison proposed on Thursday. Australia, a staunch U.S. ally that sent troops to Afghanistan and Iraq, has seen a spate of attacks by home-grown militants in recent months, including a stabbing attack in the country’s second largest city less than two weeks ago. Morrison proposed allowing the government to weaken current constraints that permit terror convicts to be stripped of their Australian citizenship only if they are already dual nations and...

Former Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull spoke to reporters after meeting Indonesian President Joko “Jokowi” Widodo on the tourist island of Bali on Monday to discuss a bilateral free trade deal. “The president expressed to me ... the very serious concern held in Indonesia about the prospect of the Australian Embassy in Israel being moved from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem,” Turnbull told Australian Broadcasting Corp. in an interview...

"I opened the door and had a surprise visitor," he said. Bay found a big black bear trapped inside his truck. "The glass wasn't broken. The truck looked like normal," he said. "So apparently, he opened the door using the handle. And then the door closed behind him once he got into the truck." Bay said the bear got so agitated that it destroyed the inside of the...

    Australian Treasurer Scott Morrison sounded alarm bells about the impact of the recently-passed American tax cuts on Australia’s economy. If Australia doesn’t pass its own version of the Trump tax cuts, Morrison fears the country will take a hit to its GDP of up to 1 percent. Morrison initially proposed a $65 billion tax cut, saying it woulld add 1 percent to Australia’s GDP. After Trump’s cut, however, Morrison warned that the cuts are necessary for the country’s economy not to contract. Morrison cited treasury analyses showing that Australia “may experience a significant recessionary impact and a potential downgrade in...
