Are we barreling toward impeachment? It’s a whole new political world this week when we learned that the President of the United States admitted to using the powers of his office to target Joe Biden, his potential rival in Election 2020 and Biden’s son, by pressuring the Ukrainian government to fabricate a scandal. Top that with the revelation that a whistleblower had filed a complaint against the President Donald Trump. And then top that with the fact that the Speaker of the House, Nancy Pelosi, a seemingly reluctant warrior has announced there will be an official Impeachment Inquiry into Donald Trump. Joining me at my table on The Halli Casser-Jayne Show is my partner in politics, former White House Correspondent Matthew Cooper for an in-depth conversation.
Roll at the barrel, yes we are on the impeachment roll and where all of this lands nobody quite knows. We are barreling toward impeachment. Here’s some of what we know: We do know that according to the whistleblower, the White House tried to “lock down” records of the Trump Ukraine call, the transcripts released to the public incriminating, to say the least. It appears that the President of the United States Trump used the power of his office to solicit foreign interference in Election 2020 and that Trump’s new fixer and private attorney, Rudy Giuliani, met an adviser to the Ukraine president in August and that the Acting DNI Chief Joseph Maguire, a Trump appointee, appeared to play games with the release of the whistleblower’s statement.
As the barrel rolls, we are in a whole new territory. The players include President Trump, an unidentified whistleblower, the Acting DNI Chief Maguire, Attorney General Bill Barr, Rudy Giuliani, Speaker Pelosi, Rep. Adam Schiff, Vice President Mike Pence and we’re just beginning. Strap yourselves in and roll out the barrel, we’re in for a barrel of fun on The Halli Casser-Jayne Show podcast with Matthew Cooper!
