Key witnesses are ignoring Trump and delivering bombshell testimony in Democrats’ Ukraine investigation.
The president's former top Russia adviser, Fiona Hill — the first White House official to cooperate in Democrats' investigation of the Ukraine scandal — has detailed for lawmakers a trail of alleged corruption that extends from Kyiv to the West Wing. In dramatic testimony on Monday, she roped in some of Trump's top advisers as witnesses to the unfolding controversy.

And on Tuesday, a senior State Department official, George Kent, testified for nearly 10 hours about his knowledge of the episode despite an attempt by Trump administration lawyers to block him, according to a source working on the impeachment inquiry. The House Intelligence Committee issued a subpoena for his testimony Tuesday morning, and Kent, the deputy assistant secretary of state for European and Eurasian Affairs, complied.
According to people familiar with his testimony, Kent told House impeachment investigators that he was alarmed at the role Rudy Giuliani, Trump’s personal attorney, was playing in Ukraine. In particular, one lawmaker in the room said Kent was concerned because the president was apparently listening to Giuliani, who had mounted a months-long campaign to discredit Joe Biden on unfounded charges.
“He was concerned at the undue influence a private attorney — not an official with the United States government and not someone charged with the responsibility of U.S. relations with Ukraine — was exerting, and that Giuliani was listening to discredited sources and had ties to some questionable characters in Ukraine, and nonetheless had the ear of the president,” Rep. Gerry Connolly (D-Va.) said in a brief interview as he emerged from Kent’s deposition.
Kent’s appearance on Tuesday was just the latest evidence that the White House’s stonewalling against congressional requests for documents and testimony is crumbling — and Democrats now have a new sense of momentum.

A Woman Who Was Fired For Flipping Off Trump's Motorcade Won An Election In Virginia

Juli Briskman, a Democrat, beat the Republican incumbent for a seat on the Loudoun County Board of Supervisors.


A Virginia woman who was fired after flipping off President Trump's motorcade in 2017 turned her political frustrations into action, winning a local election on Tuesday.
Juli Briskman won a seat on the Loudoun County Board of Supervisors, beating the incumbent Republican in her district. With 99% of precincts reporting results, she captured 52.4% of the vote.
Briskman is a longtime resident of the county, which borders Washington, DC, and in October 2017, was cycling past the president's motorcade as it was departing the Trump National Golf Course. A news photographer caught her flipping off the line of SUVs escorting Trump, and the photo went viral.




At the time, she was upset by Trump's plan to end the immigration policy Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) as well as his response to the disaster in Puerto Rico in the wake of Hurricane Maria.
"I don't employ that gesture very often but I wanted to express my opinion, and I was faced with tinted, bullet-proof glass, and I was assuming the person in the car was who I thought it was," Briskman told BuzzFeed News in 2018.

After Briskman was identified as the cyclist, her bosses at federal contractor Akima told her she had to resign from her position as a marketing analyst. A lawsuit filed by Briskman against the company in 2018 alleged the company was afraid the Trump administration would retaliate against the company and end its contracts because of the photo.
She argued the firing violated her freedom of speech, and ultimately, she won severance from her former employer, the Washington Post reported.

Trump attorneys file notice of porn actress settlement

Quote:

COLUMBUS, Ohio — Attorneys for President Donald Trump have notified the court overseeing a settlement between Ohio's capital city and porn actress Stormy Daniels of money owed to him by Daniels.
A federal judge last year said Daniels, whose real name is Stephanie Clifford, must pay Trump nearly $293,000 for his attorneys' fees and another $1,000 in sanctions after her defamation suit against him was dismissed.
Earlier this year, the city of Columbus reached a $450,000 settlement with Daniels over the porn actress' arrest at a strip club in 2018.
Her federal lawsuit alleged officers conspired to retaliate against her over her claims she had sex with Trump before he became president.
Trump's lawyers said in a Wednesday filing that Clifford owes him $293,052.
