This is what a police report said about the newest figure in the Ukraine scandal when the cops took him into custody at a Trump resort last year. And you have to read the whole story.

SCOOP: Robert F. Hyde, the new mystery player in the Ukraine scandal, was taken into police custody at a Trump resort last year, claiming the Secret Service & a hit man were after him. He was then involuntarily confined in a medical facility.

1. I can no longer keep track

Of course that is likely by design.

Who is this Hyde figure, and where does he fit in?

14. Here's a little explanation from the Mother Jones article:

(I didn't know either)

On Tuesday evening, the House Intelligence Committee released a new batch of documents relating to the Ukraine scandal, and the material introduced a new player: Robert F. Hyde, a minor Republican lobbyist and avid Donald Trump supporter who is mounting an against the-odds congressional campaign in Connecticut.

The 40-year-old Hyde is a curious figure. In recent years, he has donated tens of thousands of dollars to Trump and the Republicans, as he has tried to establish himself as a Washington, DC lobbyist and public affairs operator. The former owner of a landscaping company, he was arrested in 2011 after his firmís work led to a tree falling on power lines, according to CT Insider. (He has said the charges were later dropped and he paid a fine.) His Facebook, Instagram, and website pages feature a parade of photos of him posing with Trump and other notable Republicans, including Ivanka Trump, Donald Trump Jr., Eric Trump, Vice President Mike Pence, Rep. Jim Jordan, now-convicted felon Roger Stone, and Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis. A financial disclosure form he filed as a congressional candidate notes that he did public relations work for a mysterious Trump donor from China (whom he once introduced Trump to at Mar-a-Lago). In November, he texted a reporter for CT Insider pictures of himself with Rudy Giuliani and two Giuliani associates who have been indicted, Lev Parnas, and Igor Fruman.

It is Hydeís connection to Parnas that has landed him in the news, and a 2019 police report obtained by Mother Jones suggests that Hyde might have been a peculiar choice for Parnas to work with on his Giuliani-led Ukrainian op. The report notes that Hyde had a disturbing episode at a Trump resort for which he had to be taken into custody by police and brought to a medical facility under a state law that allows for involuntary confinement of people who might pose a risk to themselves.

2. With what we have now

Couldn't someone produce a dramatization in time for the general election to sell to Netflix and Amazon Prime for a nominal price. This is how they do it.

Taking everything into consideration anything is possible.

4. paranoia is a symptom of using methamphetamine

dotard's properties are likely hubs of such activity.

Would be interesting to do a drug screen on the toilet water of air force one.

5. Seems like he fits right in with dRump and his crowd.

Whining about how people are out to get him. Also, hanging around with hit men.

Either way, it's a perfect fit.

6. There is video of Kevin McCarthy, Hyde and others at the playoff baseball

game where the Con was booed - he is among the group.

Talk about Thugs of a feather!

one from the right angle. They have deleted several photos and videos since last night.

12. Amb Marie Yovanovitch

abruptly returned to Washington on April 25th, because of fears for her safety.

her recall became public on May 7th

Hyde's removal from Doral was on May 16

She was terminated as Amb on May 20th

trump's call with Zelensky July 25th

My question is... were Hyde's fears justified because he did not complete the job he was hired to do?

20. Thank you.

I was just about to start looking up dates myself.

He should have been paranoid because he failed at his part of the task. He probably also remembered the poisoned Russians.

25. After Maddow's interview last night

Parnas said he stopped the convo after this interchange. He regarded Hyde as a drunken loon. Which goes along with what I said in another OP. With his history, if the plot was exposed (whether carried out or not) he would make a good fall guy. Just another crazy "lone wolf" in trump's orbit.

26. +100000000

And that he knew too much and because he has a drug (alcohol) problem and loose end.

When I listened to the Parnas interview last night, I believed he was telling the truth - except for about Hyde. I think he was advised to not be tied to this guy by his lawyer. Not that that the truth wonít come out under oath - and itís possible Parnas wasnít ordering Hyde around (but Giuliani was or Igor Fruman) and Parnas best defense is that he didnít know the guy and he was a drunk.

But I saw Rachel Maddow talking with Lawrence O.Donnell in the handoff and he asked Rachel why Parnas is willing to talk to her and so openly and Rachel said: To stay alive - that the more is out there, he is likely to be safer and stay alive.

Michael Cohen knows that feeling

I also bet Parnas has Jeffrey Epstein on his mind under Barrís care.....



My head is exploding since last night....this situation is staggering. And didnít Barr just announce that no counter-intel investigations of a Presidential Campaign can be launched without his sign off?

OMFG

27. I got the same feeling about Parnas and Hyde

on 3/25 and 3/26 Hyde started talking about putting a hit on her. Parnas replied on 2/27 with let me call you in studio. What did they talk about on the phone?

I tend to believe him when he said he wanted no part of that "drug deal" If he was he would be complicit in the killing of a US ambassador. He would have been dead by either falling out a window, suicided while waiting trial or a death penalty. It was self preservation. I am going to speculate that he knew of talk like that floating around with others in this circle.

13. Just because you're paranoid does not mean they are not trying to get you.

Perhaps he spoke with someone at Doral about the situation in Ukraine with the ambassador. Maybe they realized how bad it would be if there were "emails" (proof) and pointed out to him how stupid it was to have that documented in emails. Maybe they did threatened his life. He panicked. Maybe he thought he would be safe if he made a scene and the cops were called.

Because you know these "big and bad" types are typically chicken down deep.

I wonder what he's doing today. Better be trying to find a good lawyer.

15. Photos of this guy with pretty much every major Rethug out there

are coming out of the woodwork. While, the pics with Princess Trump and those with tRump's spawn Dumb and Dumber are to be expected, I was surprised to see the pic of this douchebag with the ignored child "who shall not be named" (shhh...Tiffany...shhh). Geez, this guy really got around...kind of like he was following a dossier...hmm.
