This is my favorite response to T’s posts and blather.

Yup.

It’s not clear where Trump got the theory he advanced during his phone call, but he has been propagating versions of it throughout his presidency.

In a 2017 interview with the AP, for example, Trump asked a reporter why John Podesta and Hillary Clinton wouldn’t “allow the FBI to see the server? They brought in another company that I hear is Ukrainian-based.”

The reporter asked, “Crowdstrike?”

“That’s why I heard,” Trump replied. “I heard it’s owned by a very rich Ukrainian, that’s what I heard.”

Right-wing conspiracy theorists allege that the firm blamed Russia for the hack as part of a DNC-sponsored effort to cover up the murder of Seth Rich, who the cynical and the feverish hold responsible for sending internal DNC documents to Wikileaks. Elements of that theory have been promoted by the Russian government itself.

Elsewhere, far-right conservative media outpost Breitbart has boosted conspiracy theories around the firm. The website has portrayed Crowdstrike as a very circuitous arm of the Democratic Party. That has continued — on Saturday, Breitbart ran a story purporting to identify “common funding themes” between the whistleblower complaint and Crowdstrike.

Stone — a major proponent of the Seth Rich conspiracy theory — is now facing trial on charges of witness tampering and lying to Congress as part of its investigation into Russian interference in 2016.

The GOP provocateur had moved to produce the Crowdstrike report for his trial. But, in a bizarre twist of fate, the judge in his case denied Stone’s motion minutes after the White House released the Trump-Zelensky phone call.

Very probing article on how the Dems can anticipate an attack from T. They liken his bullying to a wrecking ball…you know it is coming.

But Biden’s Democratic rivals know that while it’s the former VP who has Trump’s attention today, there’s no telling who it might be tomorrow: the president has such a long history of making unfounded charges about opponents that any of the other Democratic presidential candidates could be the next to be tarred with a conspiracy theory.

Every single candidate in this race is going to have their time in the barrel, that is the way that Trump and his allies work,” said Zac Petkanas, a Democratic strategist who ran the Hillary Clinton campaign’s rapid response team. “His ability and willingness to manipulate the levers of power to his personal and political benefit is a huge concern going into the 2020 election.”

US President Donald Trump is so paranoid about leakers in the White House that he has repeatedly suggested that all staff members should undergo a lie-detector test, Politico reported Tuesday.

Four former administration staffers told the publication that Trump had often raised the possibility of making staff members and aides take a polygraph test after news stories with leaked information about his presidency appeared.

Ashley Parker seems to really get who T is…the schoolyard bully, the impish child and his main strength is his attack back at you once you’ve made a negative comment about him. It stands to reason, T will deflect all incoming subpoenas, align his attackers to call out these ‘traitors,’ the same attack that was made on him.

We know he’s a jerk…but this is part of his strategy. Wear the enemy down with attacks.

After House Democrats launched an impeachment inquiry into President Trump, the Oval Office occupant countered with a creative offer of his own: Impeach me? No, impeach you!

And so it was that Trump suggested, in a series of tweets, that perhaps the two California Democrats leading the effort against him — House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and Rep. Adam B. Schiff, chairman of the House Intelligence Committee — should be impeached instead.

“Must all be immediately Impeached!” wrote Trump, who, in a separate missive, also debuted an “#IMPEACH­­MITT­ROMNEY” hashtag, after Sen. Mitt Romney (R-Utah) criticized him for calling on both Ukraine and China to investigate a political rival.

Left unsaid was the pesky fact for the president that lawmakers cannot, in fact, be impeached. But the schoolyard taunt offered another window into Trump’s “I’m rubber, you’re glue” approach to the impeachment inquiry now consuming his administration.

Though the White House has yet to launch an official war room to fight the Democratic investigation, it is putting forth something of a one-man platoon in the form of the president himself — in the role of playground bully, wielding his shamelessness like a weaponized rubber kickball, ready to pummel into the mud anyone who dares to level a charge against him.

The tactic epitomizes Trump’s “I know you are but what am I?” presidency, a long-held strategy in which Trump turns an accusation back forcefully on his accuser, regardless of how outlandish or fallacious the countercharge may be.

“Trump’s approach to turning his opponents’ attacks back on them is part branding, part trolling and part relentless, disciplined messaging,” said Cliff Sims, a former White House aide and author of “Team of Vipers,” about his time working in the Trump administration. “It’s proven to be extraordinarily effective. But it’s not even replicable because no one else is audacious enough to pull it off.”
