So, this was broadcast earlier this evening.

Not much left of the ride, now, that hasn’t been revealed.

Don’t watch if you want it all to still be a surprise. But, this doesn’t do it justice. It just must be experienced! Trust me! It’s amazing!

Breaking NYT - Trump knew of whistleblower complaint when he released Ukraine aid

Breaking via NYT: Trump had already been briefed on the whistleblower complaint about his dealings with Ukraine when he unfroze military aid for the country in September, according to two people familiar with the matter. https://www.nytimes.com/2019/11/26/us/politics/trump-whistle-blower-complaint-ukraine.html


WASHINGTON — President Trump had already been briefed on a whistle-blower’s complaint about his dealings with Ukraine when he unfroze military aid for the country in September, according to two people familiar with the matter.

Lawyers from the White House counsel’s office told Mr. Trump in late August about the complaint, explaining that they were trying to determine whether they were legally required to give it to Congress, the people said.

The revelation could shed light on Mr. Trump’s thinking at two critical points under scrutiny by impeachment investigators: his decision in early September to release $391 million in security assistance to Ukraine and his denial to a key ambassador around the same time that there was a “quid pro quo” with Kyiv. Mr. Trump used the phrase before it had entered the public lexicon in the Ukraine affair.

New details also emerged on Tuesday about that decision to freeze the security assistance to Ukraine. An official from the White House budget office, Mark Sandy, testified that on July 12, he received an email from the office of the acting White House chief of staff, Mick Mulvaney, notifying him that Mr. Trump had directed that administration officials freeze Ukraine’s military aid.

When Rudolph W. Giuliani went to Madrid in August to confer with a top aide to the Ukrainian president and press for political investigations sought by President Trump, he also met with a previously unidentified client with very different interests.

While in Spain, Giuliani stayed at a historic estate belonging to Venezuelan energy executive Alejandro Betancourt López, who had hired Trump’s personal attorney to help him contend with an investigation by the Justice Department into alleged money laundering and bribery, according to people familiar with the situation.

A month later, Giuliani was one of several lawyers representing Betancourt in Washington. The lawyers met with the chief of the Justice Department’s criminal division and other government attorneys to argue that the wealthy Venezuelan should not face criminal charges as part of a $1.2 billion money-laundering case filed in Florida last year, said the people, who, like others in this report, spoke on the condition of anonymity because of the ongoing investigation.

The criminal complaint alleges that top officials of the Venezuelan state-owned oil company, elite business leaders and bankers conspired to steal money from the company and then launder it through Miami real estate purchases and other investment schemes.

More Winning! Indiana engine maker Cummins to cut 2,000 jobs

Indiana engine maker Cummins to cut 2,000 jobs
https://www.wdrb.com/news/business/indiana-engine-maker-cummins-to-cut-jobs/article_4a9f145c-0fcd-11ea-bbe4-f70e3946c570.html
LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) – Cummins Inc., the Columbus, Ind.-based engine maker, confirmed Monday that it’s cutting 2,000 jobs by early next year, citing declining revenue and reduced demand.

It’s unclear which job locations or types of positions will be affected by the layoffs. Cummins has 62,600 employees in all, according to its website.

Cummins issued a statement:

As we communicated to our employees last week, demand has deteriorated even faster than expected, and we need to adjust to reduce costs. We have already taken several actions in response to declining revenues. This includes reduced discretionary spending across the company, several global efforts to optimize our operations, voluntary headcount reductions, and we continue to align production with demand at our manufacturing facilities. Unfortunately, we must do more to reduce costs because the downturn is happening at a sharper pace than we experienced in the previous two cycles. We are going to reduce our global workforce by approximately 2,000, which we anticipate completing by Q1 2020. We understand this is incredibly difficult for those directly impacted and for all employees across the company.


Spent some time several years ago at the Columbus, IN plant helping to update their plant floor automation. Sad news.

McGahn's 30hrs of Mueller testimony cannot be quashed via Executive Privilege

@glennkirschner2
Lots of folks asking this. Two points I think are worth making: 1. McGahn CAN NOT legitimately invoke executive privilege on any topics that were the subject of his 30 hours of interviews with team Mueller. Why? Executive privilege (EP) has been waived three times over.
