2. His next step is lawyering up.

Isn't that what they're all doing?

I guess Trump really is draining the swamp. However, he's the one who filled it.

53. Ah, such great memories of

roller skating to this on weekends at the rink back in high school in the early 80's! It was especially fun as it seemed to fit the natural rhythm of skating.

Someone much more technically savvy than me should out together clips of Drumpf's increasing craziness interspersed with repubs who've jumped the ship so far, using this as the background song.

5. Wasn't he supposed to resign a year ago?

Since it's planned for November and not immediate, my hunch is he's plain old resigning.

I can't recall reading that because our long national nightmare is too much to fully process.

The timing of this announcement though. That's notable.

13. According to Kyle Griffin, YES, Pixie (from yesterday):

Energy Secretary Rick Perry, who has met on at least
three occasions with Ukrainian President Volodymyr
Zelensky, has pledged to cooperate with House Democrats
in their impeachment probe. "We are going to work with
Congress and answer all their questions."

He didn't seem to be having much fun, so I guess he figured it's time to leave.

He has decided to turn against Trump, and try to position himself as the savior of the party. The rest of Texas will follow suit.

47. About A Week Ago Perry

Was pictured sitting next to the Ukrainian PM so he has some involvement in this too so this was somewhat expected - at least by me. He probably delivered the news that the military aid was put on hold.

54. Criminals on becoming a focus of investigation are always

advised by counsel to immediately STOP being a criminal threat, in Perry's case to leave office and go to ground at home, in the hope that prosecutors will pass them over to go after others.

(The things we've been learning from all these federal prosecutors over the past 3 years...)

Given the outing of "the three amigos," Perry, Ambassador Volker and EU Ambassador Gordon Sondland, embroiled in the middle of the Trump-Ukraine mess, I'm guessing that's what his resignation is.
