- Charles Kupperman, who served as a deputy to former national security adviser John Bolton, filed a lawsuit on Friday, seeking guidance from a federal judge about whether he should listen to the executive branch, which has told him not to attend, or to Congress.
- Kupperman listened in to the July 25 call in which Trump pressed Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky to investigate former vice president Joe Biden and his son Hunter Biden. That call is at the center of the impeachment inquiry.
- No judge has been assigned to the case.
- More than likely, Kupperman will not show.
- Trump heads to Chicago to deliver a speech at the International Association of Chiefs of Police Conference.
- Chicago’s own Police Superintendent Eddie Johnson has boycotted the event because of Trump’s disgusting words about Chicago.
- The Wall of Blue issued a vote of no confidence in Johnson.
Mitt Romney’s niece Ronna called the impeachment inquiry a ‘charade.’
Trump speaks to reporters on his way to Chicago. He still claims he released the whole transcript.
“A powerful case. . . .for obstruction.”
