Trump's envoy to testify that 'no quid pro quo' came from Trump

The U.S. ambassador to the European Union, Gordon Sondland, intends to tell Congress this week that the content of a text message he wrote denying a quid pro quo with Ukraine was relayed to him directly by President Trump in a phone call, according to a person familiar with his testimony.

Sondland plans to tell lawmakers he has no knowledge of whether the president was telling him the truth at that moment. “It’s only true that the president said it, not that it was the truth,” said the person familiar with Sondland’s planned testimony, who spoke on the condition of anonymity to discuss sensitive diplomatic matters.

OK, what does that even mean?

2. I hope he thinks long and hard about whether his tax cut was worth it.

Maybe someone should show him photos of dead Kurdish kids. That's what his million dollar donation also bought.

3. It means, as one former Trump associate said...

"Even when he could tell the truth, he lies just to keep in practice."

I wish I could find that quote again, but I did find this from Truman:

"Richard Nixon is a no good, lying bastard. He can lie out of both sides of his mouth at the same time, and if he ever caught himself telling the truth, he'd lie just to keep his hand in."

5. It means Sondland has settled on a story that he believes protects him and Trump

He’s still trying to protect Trump.
