4. That is a very, very tall man.

I saw the same guy with Fiona Hill yesterday, and remarked on his height.

10. Yes, I noticed that, too.

Even taller than James Comey, it would appear.

6. Ha. His resume is spectacular. He speaks so many languages. Too too bad the GOP questioners

are incapable of formulating educated thoughtful questions in English.

12. Looks like White House tried to block him too




NEWS: The State Department and White House tried to block George Kent from appearing -- so the House Intel Committee subpoenaed him, according to a source working on the impeachment inquiry. He is complying with the subpoena.

This is Yovanovitch all over again.
