As we went to press with this final quarter-end edition of Notations, we were analyzing an interview done by NBC News with an Ukrainian Prosecutor regarding the Bidens-and the central role Rudy Giuliani played in this whole affair supported by the Special Representative for Ukraine. 226 Members of the US House of Representatives are on the record supporting an impeachment inquiry--even Tulsi Galbard who was a holdout.
