Lordy, I hope there are tapes!

From the Op-Ed page of the TIMES of SAN DIEGO:

(Written by Colleen O’Connor, native San Diegan and a retired college professor)

Sen. Dianne Feinstein just called for a “word for word” transcript of the explosive whistleblower complaint against President Trump that led to the House impeachment inquiry.

As the ranking member of the Senate Judiciary Committee, and a member of the Senate Intelligence Committee, Feinstein believes that an “official word-for-word transcript of the call” between Trump and the President of the Ukraine was produced.

And she also doubts the accuracy of Trump’s report of the call.

A verbatim transcript (without the many ellipses found in the Trump version) is probably hidden inside the U.S. intelligence community’s “code-only,” restricted-access computer system.

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s announcement for an impeachment inquiry has broken the dam.

The flood of court cases, pending subpoenas, investigations and allegations into myriad Trump irregularities in his foundation, taxes, inauguration, bank loans, and emoluments violations will now flood out.

Not just from the narrow use and abuse of power evident in the phone call to the Ukrainian president [Volodymyr Zelensky] with the “I have a favor though” dictate.

But, with all the state bank records forthcoming, the IRS audits, possible indictments and prison sentences looming for his already convicted aides, Trump’s White House is wading in rising mud.

Trump is now facing data—real details, and documents—from a Category 5 hurricane of information and informants.

And much of it is from inside the White House. It’s not in the form of a lengthy official report, but in actual transcripts, electronic records, witnesses, and possibly even audio tapes.

In short, it’s a palace coup from a seemingly organized band of insiders with intelligence training, who know where the President’s alleged crimes are hidden.


So, where does this end? Exactly, where it began — with Trump.

Over two years ago, Trump denied he ever asked the James Comey, director of the FBI, to make the Russia investigation go away.

After that incident became public, Trump tweeted, “Comey better hope that there are no ‘tapes’ of our conversations before he starts leaking to the press!”

Comey’s reply: “Lordy, I hope there are tapes.”

That would be the answer to both Feinstein’s and Pelosi’s prayers.

  1. The sad fact is that if there were/are tapes, haven’t those tapes already been destroyed or will not they not be destroyed by one of his henchman. I put nothing past those people. Absolutely nothing!!1

    • I don’t think any of his idiot henchmen are stupid enough to actually destroy the tapes, because that’s a crime, and they aren’t willing to go to jail for Twitler. Instead, they put it on a password-protected server, and I think it’s just a matter of time before they have to produce that call and a lot others.

    I guess there’s a price to be paid for being a total asshole to everyone who works for you, after all.

    I had wondered about evidence on that secret server being destroyed. Given the kind of people Trump employs as henchmen, some of them might not be smart enough to realize obeying such an order could get them in trouble. On the other hand, these idiots already e-mailed their own talking points to the House Democrats by mistake, so who knows what they’ll end up doing.

    I just can’t see Trump wearing a bowler hat, even a made-in-Bangladesh one. Much too civilized for him.

    Maybe Hillary can stand outside the White House and throw him some paper towels.

    • Whoever said there was honor among theives? This lot was just waiting to see who would stab whom in the back first, and the first stab always comes from Twitler. I don’t foresee this as turning out like Watergate. I don’t see anyone willing to fall on their own sword to protect this asshole. Instead, it will be a rush to see who can make the best deals, exchanging information for no or little jail time. Even Rudy 9/11 is already throwing people under the bus. Twitler retweeted that asshole Robert Jeffress about there being a civil war if Twitler is impeached. Shit, if he wants to see a civil war, all he has to do is look around the White House. I wouldn’t be surprised if a lot of his die-hard supporters made sure to take lots of notes (and pictures) like Don McGahn did in order to cover their own asses. That’s why I don’t think anyone would have destroyed anything on that server. In fact, I would be surprised if there were lots of copies on a lot of laptops.

      Maybe Hillary can stand outside the White House and throw him some paper towels. 😆 That’s hilarious!
