“A whistleblower complaint about President Trump made by an intelligence official centers on Ukraine, according to two people familiar with the matter, which has set off a struggle between Congress and the executive branch.
“The complaint involved communications with a foreign leader and a ‘promise’ that Trump made, which was so alarming that a U.S. intelligence official who had worked at the White House went to the inspector general of the intelligence community, two former U.S. officials said.
“Two and a half weeks before the complaint was filed, Trump spoke with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky, a comedian and political newcomer who was elected in a landslide in May.”
That sounds similar! But I digress.
In undoubtedly related news, Wrong Again Rudy went on the Teevee and literally denied that he’d asked the Ukrainians to investigate Biden, and then admitted that he had indeed asked them to investigate Biden:
So, you know, this might be where Prznint Deals made a promise for a little election interference, you know, sortalike the 2016 Goat Rodeo that he has now absolutely gotten away with!
And THAT brings us to #MoscowMitch — who has suddenly announced support for election security:
Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell on Thursday expressed support for providing states with an additional $250 million in election security funding, an abrupt turnaround after more than a year of opposition from the Kentucky Republican on the issue.
McConnell, who has been derided by Democrats as “Moscow Mitch” for repeatedly blocking efforts to combat Russian interference in U.S. elections, announced his position in remarks on the Senate floor Thursday morning.
So there we are, 3 intertwining stories involving 2020 Goat Rodeo interference, and yet, oddly we cannot haz impeachment.
