    Not that any of the Trumpers actually care about the truth or even context.

    The deal did lift some sanctions, which lifted a freeze on Iranís assets that were held largely in foreign, not U.S., banks. And, to be clear, the money that was unfrozen belonged to Iran. It had only been made inaccessible by sanctions aimed at crippling the countryís nuclear program.

    c'mon now, they were all equally livid when pallets of cash went missing in iraq

    How the US sent $12bn in cash to Iraq. And watched it vanish
    Special flights brought in tonnes of banknotes which disappeared into the war zone


    The US flew nearly $12bn in shrink-wrapped $100 bills into Iraq, then distributed the cash with no proper control over who was receiving it and how it was being spent.
    The staggering scale of the biggest transfer of cash in the history of the Federal Reserve has been graphically laid bare by a US congressional committee.

    In the year after the invasion of Iraq in 2003 nearly 281 million notes, weighing 363 tonnes, were sent from New York to Baghdad for disbursement to Iraqi ministries and US contractors. Using C-130 planes, the deliveries took place once or twice a month with the biggest of $2,401,600,000 on June 22 2004, six days before the handover.

    So Trump tries to pressure the Ukraine President into investigation of Hunter Biden to use against Joe Biden. Another day, another Presidential crime. Nothing to see here, move along.

    Re: The policy and politics of Trumpism

    Trump supposedly made the phone calls to Ukraine's President in late July. Dan Coates and his #2, Sue Gordon, both resigned in mid-August. Coincidence? Then Guiliani goes on CNN and lies about his contacts with the Ukraine government on trying to get dirt on Hunter Biden to be used against Joe Biden. Then the acting DNI, Joseph McGuire, went to the DOJ with the whistleblower's case rather than Congress. It is now in the hands of AG Barr and I think we all know how that will play out. Possible paywall.

    The funny thing is that around the webisphere I am seeing many complaining that the Democrats aren’t immediately launching impeachment proceedings, and therefore are the real anti American and lazy party.

    How true, thatís stupid, the world will end in 12 years, and to stop that from happening, weíll eliminate all car and air travel. Good luck. You know that the American people think thatís a complete joke. People actually evoking the name of aoc is hilarious. See above.
