Today's Impeach-O-Meter: OK, It Was a Quid Pro Quo, but We Didn't Say the Words "Illegal Quid Pro Qu

Today’s Impeach-O-Meter: OK, It Was a Quid Pro Quo, but We Didn’t Say the Words “Illegal Quid Pro Quo” Out Loud

Sondland is apparently going to claim that he had no idea until recently that Hunter Biden worked for Burisma despite the Biden-Burisma connection having been a major story for months earlier this year. “It was a quid pro quo, but not a corrupt one,” the Post quotes a “person familiar with Sondland’s testimony” as saying. (One person who will likely have difficulty convincing the general public that he didn’t know about the Bidens’ link to Burisma is the president, given that he alluded to it during Fox News interviews in both April and May.)

Sondland—who, in happier times, donated $1 million to Trump’s inaugural fund—is expected to give a deposition to the House Intelligence Committee on Thursday despite the State Department’s having told him not to. Raise the meter for rats making self-interested decisions on whether to take legal advice from a sinking ship!

1. We need to stop saying "quid pro quo", mf45 supporters won't get it, use "pay for play"
