A national security aide to Vice President Mike Pence submitted additional classified evidence to House impeachment investigators about a phone call between Pence and Ukraine's president, House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff revealed Friday.

In a letter to Pence, Schiff (D-Calif.) asked the vice president to declassify supplemental testimony from the aide, Jennifer Williams, about Pence’s Sept. 18 phone call with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky, arguing that there is no “legitimate basis” to keep it secret.



“The Office of the Vice President’s decision to classify ‘certain portions’ of the Sept. 18 call … cannot be justified on national security or any other legitimate grounds we can discern,” Schiff wrote to Pence, requesting a response by Dec. 11.


Schiff indicated that Williams recalled the relevant information about Pence’s phone call after her closed-door deposition on Nov. 7 and wished to convey it to impeachment investigators. The letter indicates Williams submitted the supplemental filing on Nov. 26, a week after she testified publicly.

Schiff’s letter represents the first sign that House impeachment investigators are still actively pursuing the Ukraine investigation, even after they compiled a 300-page report detailing what Democrats say is a campaign by President Donald Trump to pressure his Ukrainian counterpart to investigate his political rivals. ..............

4. Obstruction of Justice

Pence knows they are all dirty. In November of 2016 he spoke about Democrats trying to
make the election illegitimate because of "the Russia thing." Ukraine 2019 is just an extension
of Russia 2016 and Trump.

7. Asking for a foreign government to interfere in our elections.

This is all part of the biggest crime in America's history and in the end if the
republicans in the senate want to stand up with and help protect the criminals,
fine let 'em.

Besides Pence is one of those phony Christian Evangelicals who think that just
because they believe in some kind of supernatural being that lives on a cloud
they can tell other people on how to live their lives.* Fuck 'em.

For the second time in a year, state legislators in Ohio have proposed anti-abortion legislation that pushes doctors to perform a medical procedure that does not exist.

Ohio House Bill 413, known as the “abortion murder” bill, carries language that appears to require doctors treating a woman who suffers an ectopic pregnancy to re-implant the fertilized egg in the patient’s uterus or face criminal charges. We left phone messages for the bill’s Republican sponsors, state Reps. Candice Keller and Ron Hood, but received no response from either.

13. Yeah,that is utterly bizarre.

Honestly, why are people who think this way elected to office? I predict a shortage of MDs in Ohio, if you can get charged with murder for failing to do a procedure that doesn't exist...

5. Rep Schiff should call to testify

Nunes,Moscow Mitch and others why they are promoting Russian propaganda they know is false, then ask them is they know of any Russian money given to any members of their party , or funneled to anyone using other organizations to them or their campaigns. Then ask them are they aware of any election fraud from Anyone, both Russian, Ukraine, or from anyone, even themselves. Once they commit to lying he'll have them showing why they're promoting putins propaganda for him and trump.
