As Democrats continue to make a solid case against President Donald Trump, his lawyer Rudy Giuliani is now desperately accusing Secretary of State Mike Pompeo of obstruction of justice for supposedly preventing Ukrainian witnesses from testifying in Trump’s favor.
Witness testimony over the last week has been devastating for Trump and Giuliani as White House officials come forward to confirm that Trump demanded Ukraine investigate former Vice President Joe Biden’s son in exchange for military aid that had already been approved by Congress. This quid-pro-quo to get dirt on his potential opponent in the 2020 Election is an abuse of presidential power and an impeachable offense.
Giuliani was deeply involved in Trump’s scheme even though prosecutors in Ukraine had already cleared the Bidens of any wrongdoing.
The impeachment inquiry is going so bad for Trump and Giuliani that Democrats announced on Thursday that they have enough evidence to vote on articles of impeachment.
Breaking: Dems say enough evidence to move forward on impeachment. Vote likely by mid-December. They will not wait for courts to force additional witnesses – @Phil_Mattingly reporting.

This decision comes after damning testimony from Ambassador Gordon Sondland earlier this week and equally damning testimony from other officials on Thursday, which Rep. Jim Jordan (R-Ohio) tried to block by shouting.
Faced with possible criminal prosecution, Giuliani resorted to throwing Pompeo and the State Department under the bus on Twitter by claiming there are witnesses in Ukraine that are not being given visas so they can testify and provide “evidence” against the Bidens.
The embassy in Ukraine refuses to give visas for three witnesses, two present prosecutors and the former Prosecutor General, who have direct evidence of major Dem corruption in Ukraine in 2016. They will show how Embassy there did nothing to protect @realDonaldTrump. Obstruction?

This is a desperate stunt by an increasingly desperate man who got caught committing serious crimes with the president to tilt the upcoming election in his favor. Pompeo cannot be pleased with being accused of obstruction by Trump’s lawyer, and it just goes to show that it truly won’t be long before everyone in the administration starts turning on each other to save themselves.
