    You're better off not knowing, it's just too much for your feeble mind.

    It's hard to find enough crooks to fill an entire administration.

    "After listing to Hill for hours behind closed doors, Rep. Jamie Raskin, D-Md., said each of the officials being questioned by the panels are offering pieces of a wider picture that is helping put together different aspects of the impeachment inquiry.

    "All of these witnesses are filling in the picture of what was taking place because the famous — infamous July 25 telephone call was not some kind of one-off — it was the culmination of a continuing campaign by Rudy Giulian and his henchmen," he said, calling the Giuliani's work a "shadow" foreign policy campaign that aimed to "shakedown" the Ukrainian government.

    Before helping guide the Trump administration on Russia and Euroasia policy, Hill was a Brookings Institution scholar, a frequent Putin critic and authored multiple books on Russia and Vladimir Putin, including "Mr. Putin: Operative in the Kremlin," which criticized the Russian president's ruling of the country. She holds master's degrees in Soviet studies, along with Russian and modern history, according to her Brookings Institution biography."

    Former Trump Russia adviser Fiona Hill testifies for 10 hours in impeachment probe

    "At least three other witnesses are expected to appear before the House Democrats' impeachment panel this week. Here's what you need to know about each:

    • George P. Kent is an expert on Ukraine and Russia who now serves as a deputy assistant secretary at the State Department. He is scheduled to be deposed on Tuesday.

    Kent landed in Giuliani’s crosshairs earlier this year, as the former New York mayor ramped up his pressure on the Ukrainian government to open investigations that could benefit Trump. In an interview with a Ukrainian news site in May, Giuliani alleged, without evidence, that Kent was working with George Soros, the liberal billionaire philanthropist, to find “dirty information” on Trump campaign officials.

    Before taking his current post, Kent served as the deputy chief of mission in Kiev, and he also spent years working on anti-corruption efforts across Europe. He joined the foreign service nearly 30 years ago, and speaks Ukrainian, Russian and Thai, among other languages.

    “He always struck me as a very professional person who was focused on trying to advance American interests,” said Michael McFaul, who served as the U.S. ambassador to Russia in the Obama administration.

    • Gordon Sondland, Trump ambassador to the European Union, will return to Capitol Hill this week. The State Department blocked him from testifying last week. Sondland, A wealthy former hotel magnate from Oregon, he has emerged as a central player in the Ukraine affair.

    Text messages released earlier this month show that he and Kurt Volker, Trump's former special envoy to Ukraine, orchestrated a months-long effort to push Ukraine's newly elected president, Zelensky, to make a public promise that he would order probes into Biden and Ukraine's alleged role in 2016 election meddling.

    • T. Ulrich Brechbuhl is the State Department’s top lawyer and a long-time friend of Secretary of State Mike Pompeo. Pompeo and Brechbuhl both graduated from West Point in 1986, and they served together in Germany before the fall of the Berlin Wall.

    Brechbuhl – who was born in Switzerland and speaks French, German and Swiss-German – came to the State Department after a long private-sector career. Before either Pompeo or Brechbuhl came to Washington, they were business partners at Thayer Aerospace, a Kansas defense company.

    He joined the State Department in 2018 and has served as the agency’s counsel and senior adviser to Pompeo. Brechbuhl’s name first emerged in the Ukraine controversy last month, with the release of the explosive whistleblower complaint that alleged that Trump used the power of his office to solicit foreign interference in the 2020 election.

    Brechbuhl was among those who listened to Trump’s July 25 phone call with Zelensky."

    Abortion rights dogma can obscure human reason & harden the human heart so much that the same person who feels
    empathy for animal suffering can lack compassion for unborn children who experience lethal violence and excruciating
    pain in abortion.

    Unborn animals are protected in their nesting places, humans are not. To abort something is to end something
    which has begun. To abort life is to end it.

    LMAO... pure bullshit. They are allowing selective leaking of info to tell a narrative. Doing exactly the opposite of what you are suggesting.

    They are hiding the actual Q&A from the public and then letting the 'witnesses' simply spout off whatever they want in public.

    cops investigating a crime don't make their investigation public

    this is the ONLY body investigating this crime


    first you have to find out what happened then you have a public trial
