This post is just some links dealing with the impeachment inquiry and a book recommendation.
Here are two episodes of The John Batchelor show, with Andrew C. McCarthy as the guest:
Dems on the House Intelligence Committee began releasing transcripts of hearings yesterday, so here are links to the first two:

A few months ago, I mentioned getting a new library card at my local public library and beginning to use two free digital book services, Hoopla and RB Digital, which offer many selections of audiobooks and e-books. These digital book services are available at many public libraries across America.
At Hoopla, I found Andrew C. McCarthy’s latest book, Ball of Collusion: The Plot to Rig an Election and Destroy a Presidency, in audiobook and am currently listening to it. This book offers details of the backstory to how Ukraine is entwined in the 2016 Russian Collusion Dem smear campaign, working to paint Trump as a Russian agent, and also details on the Obama administration policy in Ukraine, the corrupt money connections and the Clinton connections to Ukraine, long before 2016. It’s become part of the mainstream media mythmaking in the Trump era to present everything that happened during the Obama years was above reproach and pretend the Obama executive branch operated totally committed to doing all things professionally, transparently and without a hint of scandal. McCarthy smacks down that concerted spin effort to rewrite the Obama years into the most halcyon presidency in American history with facts about the messy foreign policy, big money dealings and, let me whisper the word… corruption that occurred on Obama’s watch.
Ball of Collusion:The Plot to Rig an Election and Destroy a Presidency is also available at bookstores. Here’s the amazon link. I will likely buy this books too, so that I can refer to it for information, especially about the foreign players bios and dealings with Washington politicians, as this impeachment mess rolls ahead.
