What a great song that is, Matt. Hope it proves prophetic.

Hmm. Well, google Robert Plant’s Honeydrippers and you’ll hear they took their name from the blues singer Roosevelt “Honeydripper “ Sykes. Or hey, how about this band? They do play nice clean early 70s R & B.

Cheers,
John

Two details: what the White House released is not a transcript. They do seem constitutionally ill-equipped to tell the damn truth sometime. Also, the document explicitly indicates Bill Barr’s complicity in Trump’s impeachable project. I look forward to many DOJ statements that there’s nothing to see here.

Cheers,
John

Not just Barr, but Guiliani, which is even worse since Guiliani was not working for the government but was Trump's personal attorney so there's no pretending that his motivation in seeking to make trouble for Biden was purely government business.

Roger: true. But it's Barr's DOJ now saying there's no need for Congress to ever see the whistleblower complaint. They've looked it over and there's nothing to see. I expect them to repeat that vociferously over the coming weeks, they have every reason to.
To quote Mandy Rice-Davies: "Well, they would say that, wouldn't they?"

Cheers,
John

Given that this is the very subject of the impeachment inquiry, I find it hard to believe they'll be able to get away with withholding the whistleblower report, especially since Schiff said yesterday that the whistleblower himself might testify next week. At any rate, even the WH read-out of the conversation, which isn't an actual transcript and has probably been prettied up a bit, is rather damning.

And I suppose that Schiff will be subpoenaing Rudy any minute now
