    The Trump administration – which Trump claims is "the most transparent administration in United States history" – is defying a court order and refusing to release 40 pages of emails between Mick Mulvaney aide Robert Blair and OMB official Michael Duffey. The emails relate to Trump's withholding of Congressionally-approved military aid to Ukraine and pressuring Ukraine to investigate Trump's political rival. In the impeachment investigation, just as it did during the Mueller investigation, the Trump administration engages in lies and cover-ups, hides evidence and refuses to allow witnesses to testify. If you'll excuse me, I want to look up the definition of "transparent."

    Mitch McConnell and Senate Republicans don't want any witnesses to testify at Trump's impeachment trial. They want to get their sham trial over with as quickly as they can so they can unanimously vote for acquittal while ignoring all the evidence that has already been presented in the House impeachment hearings. Today we have a surprising new development: Bolton is willing to testify. How did the orange-skinned Tweeter-In-Chief respond to the news? He, once again, called impeachment a "hoax." Welcome to Trumpworld.

    In other words, "We Republicans, all of whom have sold our souls to Donald Trump, are not going allow John Bolton or any other witnesses to testify and even if we did, it would make no difference because we're going to ignore all the evidence and vote unanimously for acquittal." And Emperor Trump will remain above the law, answerable to no one. America isn't "great." America has become a monarchy.

    Nancy Pelosi is being overly and unjustifiably optimistic when she declares in a letter to colleagues, "Soon, the Senate will have the opportunity to honor its oath to 'do impartial justice according to the Constitution and laws.'" We already know the outcome of the impeachment trial: Republicans will not be impartial and justice will not be served. They will ignore the evidence and unanimously vote for acquittal and Emperor Trump will remain above the law.

    The orange-skinned buffoon who falsely brags about his "transparent" administration tried to hide details of his call to Zelensky, refuses to release his taxes, refuses to cooperate with investigators, refuses to provide subpoenaed documents, threatens and intimidates witnesses and refuses to give details of his meetings with Putin. Now it appears he will refuse to allow his former national security adviser to testify at the impeachment trial. The most crooked, corrupt, dishonest, amoral, unethical, self-serving con man who has ever lived is, not coincidentally, the least transparent person who has ever lived. He's afraid of us learning the truth about him – but he won't be able to hide it forever.

    Yes, Emperor Trump keeps calling impeachment a "hoax" and a "scam" but please don't judge him too harshly. After all, he's never read the United States Constitution so he doesn't understand that impeachment is a Constitutional process. He also doesn't understand that obstructing justice, defying subpoenas, interfering with investigations, threatening and intimidating witnesses, withholding Congressionally-approved military aid and seeking election interference from a foreign country are wrong.

    "There have been 15 impeachments in the history of the country. Two of them were cut short by resignations. In the other 13 impeachments there were witnesses." That is what Kentucky Senator Mitch McConnell told Larry King on CNN, January 28, 1999. McConnell wanted witnesses to testify during the Bill Clinton impeachment trial. McConnell has since become a blindly loyal member of the Cult of Donald Trump and wants no witnesses at Trump's impeachment trial. Nancy Pelosi rightly points out that if no witnesses are allowed, McConnell and Senate Republicans will be guilty of a cover-up and there will be political repercussions.

    "No evidence. No crime. Impeachment hoax. Witch hunt." The orange-skinned Tweeter-In-Chief was in his usual fine form today. Now he wants the impeachment charges dismissed. How dare anyone accuse the Emperor of wrongdoing!

    Lev Parnas and Igor Fruman secretly funneled foreign money into US political campaigns, pushed for the ouster of Ambassador to Ukraine Marie Yovanovitch and assisted Rudy Giuliani in his efforts to persuade Ukrainian officials to dig up dirt on Joe Biden, thereby boosting Trump's chances of being re-elected in 2020. Parnas and Froman, both Soviet-born, have been indicted on several charges including conspiracy, falsification of records and making false statements. They are associates of Rudy Giuliani, Trump's personal attorney who is facing legal troubles of his own. And don't forget, Trump surrounds himself with "the very best people." He says so.

    Democrats want John Bolton, Mike Duffey and Mick Mulvaney to testify in the impeachment trial. A small number of Republicans may actually show more loyalty to the Constitution than to Emperor Trump and join with Democrats in calling for witnesses. After all, how can a trial be fair if not all the witnesses are heard and not all the evidence is presented? Nancy Pelosi today noted that 66 witnesses testified in the Clinton impeachment process, including three in the Senate trial, and 90,000 pages of documents were released, whereas Trump "was too afraid to let any of his aides testify and covered up every single document." In response, the orange-skinned parrot squawked his usual mantra: "Hoax! Witch hunt! Hoax! Witch hunt! Awwwrkkk!"
