Trump asked Sen. Kevin Kramer (R-ND) to block a resolution on Turkey's genocide of the Armenian people to please Erdoğan.
In a private speech Trump's former national security adviser, John Bolton said that the president made a foreign policy decision in Turkey based on his own business interests.
The national security threats the behavior of President Donald Trump and his administration have posed to the United States have justifiably been the focus and concern of those members of congress leading the impeachment inquiry. After all, the Mueller report compellingly concluded that the Russian Government “interfered in the 2016 presidential election in sweeping and systematic fashion” and discovered numerous points of contacts between Russia and the Trump associates leading up to, and even after, the 2016 Presidential election. Trump’s recently discovered shenanigans in soliciting the Ukraine government to dig up dirt on his opponent Joe Biden and effectively interfere in the 2020 election.
Nancy Pelosi and Chuck Schumer blasted President Donald Trump for refusing to sanction Turkey in a move of total surrender.

Trump specifically thanked President Tayyip Erdogan "for his help", drawing a curt response from the Turkish leader, who has repeatedly said it was a court's decision to make, not his.
Officials in Turkey have in their possession an Apple Watch audio recording of the alleged murder of journalist Jamal Khashoggi, according to a report from the Associated Press.
Khashoggi was reportedly wearing the Apple Watch when he entered the Consulate of Saudi Arabia in Istanbul over a week ago. AP said the story was first reported Saturday by a Turkish newspaper, Sabah. This is the pro-government newspaper that Turkish security officials have been using to leak information to the public about the Khashoggi case.
The New York Times just added fuel to the raging dumpster fire threatening to take down this White House.

Oh, how they hate Obama. I mean 'hate' with a capital "H." We're talking about most of the world's population. I know this animus to be true because the right wing echo chamber led by wildly overpaid, radical talk show hosts, Fox News, and pollsters tell me so, relentlessly.
