It's pretty obvious that Pence wrote the 'anonymous' book. He's frothing at the mouth thinking about having the Presidency handed to him after tRump is forced out.

This tells me the only reason he got this position was they figured he'd make a great stooge.

The framers of the Constitution certainly didn't foresee a crook in the Senate protecting a crook in the White House. The only way McTurtle will allow tRump to be removed is if his own political future is in danger.

83. Sondland WON'T admit to Schiff -- "Not the Bidens" twice, even though quid pro quo

What the kind of legal hairsplitting is this!


"As I recall" is clever after quoting word-for-word SOME statements, but NONE of the Big Stuff.

After the wavy-gravy, no-notes but exact quotes claims, "I don't remember the readout" is disingenuous bullshit.

90. Pence might be in the loop with a nod

When Sondland updated pence to his face that assistance was stalled depending on a public statement. Pence nodded yes.

A bit vague about penceís knowing.

Amazingly, thereís still room in the loop under the back axle.

Rethugs will hone in on him saying only, "investigations" as a general term, and not mentioning Bidens in particular. So tRump was only concerned about corruption in Ukraine.
