4. It's a coping mechanism for the guilty

The guilty know when they are doing something to someone who does not deserve it. Therefore they attempt to tear down and vilify the person so it will seem like there is a reason for what they are doing. It's kind of like how the Nazis dehumanized the Jews so they could justify their crimes against them.

5. If he had simply fired/removed her

She would have only been confused and disappointed. He smeared her reputation to inflict pain. Not only for her, but her family. He is sadistic.

9. This is a person who can't stand a woman with power or authority. Remember him stalking behind

Hilary during the debates? A competent, intelligent and successful woman is his greatest fear. The only woman he has treated with at least some respect is Nancy Pelosi. He is most afraid of her because she sees right through him. He doesnít even treat his wife with respect.

10. Courage and dignity.


Iím not sure I could have done what she did today. She is to be commended for her strength under pressure and the dignity she brought to the hearing. tRump could take a lesson but ó of course, wonít.

13. The Smear was Trump broadcasting to Putin, not only was he...

carrying out orders, he's displaying for the godfather how ruthless he can be for his mentor, while saying look over here, I'm fixing the Ukraine thing too. Wasn't it one of Putin's cronies that wanted her out?

14. There was also an answer she gave when asked by the GOP lawyer about Volker

 

The lawyer asked if she thought Volker had done the right thing and she said "I am sure he felt he was doing the right thing at the time." She knows Volker played both sides, and that Volker may be in a lot of trouble for helping the "3 amigos".

At one point I asked myself who the GOP lawyer was representing because his case did not go anywhere, to his credit he was very decent and respectful. I kind of felt that at some point he felt he was on the wrong side.

32. I thought so too.

In fact, during questioning by the counsel I had to keep reminding myself that he was on the Republican side.

16. The quote about investigators of corruption pissing off corrupt people by George Kent

Was also right up there with this one. And the whole thing about a cell phone call with the president on speaker phone right in the middle of a restaurant in Ukraine was also a high point of the hearings as well. How hypocritical it was of them to attack Hillary for her emails! These three take the cake so far, in my opinion.

21. He must destroy

 

What he does not possess!

With the Ambassador, it's her reputation.

With Hillary it was legitimacy.

With Obama it's a sterling legacy.

Dump has nothing except disdain from everyone besides his sycophants and paid brown shirts!

When he asked in Michigan, "What do you have to lose!!?"

Anyone care to answer?

Pride and dignity for starters!

it is appropriate to pull them out on the last wave of the brakeman's hand on the last train out of town?

(just my snide comment directed at those who dismiss the matter because he has that absolute right to get himself impeached thing)

31. That's it exactly.

He had to have known that someday she was likely talk to someone--maybe not testify, but talk to someone--about how he was upending longstanding foreign policy objectives for personal gain. He wanted to kneecap her ability to get the word out.

34. You nailed it. Not good enough to diismiss her

from her position. He had to discredit her so everyone else would dismiss what she said about him.

Of course, he also is ruthlessly cruel and sadistic. He believes in kicking people that he knocks down so they can't strike back in self defense. But he misjudged his target in Ambassador Yovanovitch.

27. MF45's revengeful and preposterous fabrication that she was part of his being dissed.

Because it turns out the MF45 avenging devil who was rooting out corruption (don't ya know) - actually is the poster child for George Kent's quote ::

"You can't fight corruption without pissing off corrupt people."

tRump has been a Rimless Zero in my book. (something less than 0).
