Castor walks into a rake, gets Sondland to admit *again* that the hold up was the investigations. Then says “ahh.” Then gives up on asking more questions.
Show of hands: who’s buying that Sondland didn’t make the Burisma-Biden connection until much later? I’m not. I think at first he said that to make himself look better. Now he has to stick with it because he said it before and, you know, perjury.
I've just been handed a prototype of the finished game, and let me tell you it's quite the thing. The People said I could show you the box. https://www.penguinrandomhouse.com/books/624380/stet-dreyers-english-by-benjamin-dreyer/
No one prevents a witness who can exonerate them from testifying.
Like I said, he just can't resist.
. @President Trump is now standing on South Lawn reading - from handwritten notes - quotes from Sondland testimony:
So....I'm honored to say that Yale has given me an endowed chair. I'm now officially the Class of 1954 Professor of History. https://news.yale.edu/2019/11/20/joanne-freeman-named-class-1954-professor-american-history
It was painful watching Nunes flounder like that. Phew. Cringe worthy performance. He has nothing except conspiracy theories.
😂 Nunes can’t even say Manafort‘s name. Generically calls him campaign member. Nobody “dirtied up” Manafort, he did it himself and that’s why he sitting in federal prison.
Sonland: Ok fine, there was a quid pro quo. But don't blame me for trying my hardest to facilitate it.
Sondland’s lawyers this morning https://twitter.com/jentaub/status/1197162491144474624
Gordon Sonland hired an excellent lawyer
You can feel the walls closing in on @Rudy Giuliani. All the witnesses put Rudy right in the middle of this scheme, and Trump now has only one out: claim Rudy went rogue and beyond his authorization.
How does John Bolton not testify now?
I’ll go out on a second limb & say it would be a good day for a few key Republicans to say this has gone too far & they now support impeachment.
Today would be a good day for a witness to come totally clean, tell the truth & let the cards fall where they may. For the good of the republic. Is that too much to ask in 2019?
Goldman: You understood Giuliani spoke for the president? Sondland: Correct
💣 BOOM! Ambassador Sondland said Zelensky had to announce the investigations, not actually do them in order to get White House meeting and aid released.
