Things appear to be taking a decisive turn in Washington. With evidence mounting that Donald Trump had attempted to coerce the President of Ukraine into assisting with the swiftboating of Joe Biden, and news breaking that the intelligence community whistleblower who first brought the charges to the attention of the IGIC had reached out to […]
