The second big difference, as conservative columnist Ed Morrissey pointed out this week, is that the Democrats appeared to take pains to keep all this business away from the Clinton campaign. "If nothing else, the Clinton machine understood the need for firewalls between negative-research efforts and the candidate," Morrissey writes over at The Week.

77. GS: I'm late with Giuliani so everything was funneled through Volker, etc.

GS: When the president says, "Talk to Rudy" we presume nothing would happen unless we did.

GS: Volker, Perry and others were handling everything before I saw Rudy.

Castor: No recall of anything about "the call," right?

GS: When you mention ASAP, Rocky, now I remember the call.

Castor: What's dht ecranky prz say?

GS: So many scenarios, so I just said, "What the f... do you want for Ukraine?" Prz said, "Nothing, just that Zelensky do the right thing." Which gave me the impetus to text Taylor to "pick up the ball."

Castor: "Did Bolton clue you in with precise evidence?"

GS: per Mr. Goldman, 2+2=4 and so Aug 22 I proposed a briefing I'd give Zelensky and asked Pompeo if I could do that. Biden didn't come up.

Castor: No Zelensky statement! Even if it had, it didn't include Biden.

GS: It would have mentioned 2016 and Burisma, no Biden. I and a lot of people didn't make the Biden connection until after the July transcript.

So, after the transcript and whistleblower, everyone denied culpability. Now it's on Rudy and his client, 45.

It doesn’t and he doesn’t care. Republicans always hide behind both sides are the same.

I think the evidence is too strong and will move public opinion. That’s what is needed to have a chance in the senate.

79. Bwah! Sondland said that Biden's name didn't come into the picture for him until "later"

that he could recall - "maybe after the July 25th call".

BINGO.

Castro goes deer in headlights.

86. Castor was trying to lead him to saying that "Biden" was never an issue

and it was just "Burisma" and "2016 elections" for the hold and so Sondland wouldn't have heard the name mentioned... except apparently Sondland DID hear it.

83. So, pOTUS was 'extra cranky' on Sept 9

Sondland kept his convo with the pRes brief, used an expletive in, "what the blank do you want from Ukraine"

tRump replies, Nothing. I don't want a quid pro quo, I just want them to do the right thing.

(Is a rough and tardy paraphrasing)

___
But, anyhow, imo...tRumps logic goes: I don't want an engine involved, but I want to gas up a car and drive real fast to McDonald's.

Am just so tired of republicons lying about how quid pro quo fits into commiting bribery.

eta - and later Taylor. Trying to make Taylor sound like an ingenue ... Sondland's ego is enormous.

100. Trump is just a crook

Funny seeing everybody tying themselves in knots to defend a crook. Trump is just a slimy con man, willing to do anything for power and cash. Not that hard to understand. What is hard to understand is if the country can hold up against such a man when scumbags like Nunes and Jordan are in Congress.

Now he’s making the case that the white house should releases the evidence.

He’s happy he’s proving points.

Edit. He’s going to be shocked when he finds out the democrats aren’t the ones preventing the evidence being released

Also here goes another round of 30 minutes each. Woohoo
