MAYDAY 1551: TUESDAY, OCTOBER 8, 2019

Whistle-blower protection; as old as the Republic itself. Congress passed the world’s first whistle-blower protection legislation in 1778 in an

effort to keep American elites honest; Americans struggle to do so still, in 2019, with American, politicians.

Americans struggle still in 2019, to keep American elites honest, although whistleblower protections are as old as the Republic. Congress

passed the world’s first whistle-blower protection legislation, in 1778. President Don, begs to differ, with Congress.

The decision to block Mr Sondland from being interviewed was delivered late; at the last minute; after the ambassador had already landed in

Washington from Europe. And after lawmakers had already returned from a two-week recess to observe the questioning.

The lateness and apparent hastiness of such a momentous decision reflect, poorly on The Don and bode poorly for his party. @Scotus: @POTUS

is unfit. But so long as @VP finds him not so, ‘tis the responsibility of the Court, Supreme, to checkmate the POTUS.

And there is little sign, at least in the call’s immediate aftermath, that the President himself was aware of the scramble ensuing among scrambling

underlings to contain the fallout from his conversation. Blissfully obliviously is The Donald … presiding.

“Russia is waging an information warfare campaign against the U.S. that didn’t start and didn’t end with the 2016 election,” says Burr.

“Their goal is broader: to sow societal discord and erode public confidence in the machinery of government,” says, Burr.

Russia’s been waging an information warfare campaign against US that didn’t begin and won’t end with the 2016 election. ‘Tis ongoing.

A success on the verge of failure. For Don’s a loose cannon. With loose lips he shoots from the hip, questions, reserving.
