Castor elicits from Sondland the quote of the day:

Sondland: I don’t see how you can call it an irregular channel when you are talking to the president of the united states, the secretary of state, the white house chief of staff, the energy secretary.

4. Nicole Wallace:

"There was no irregular policy channel. There was *the channel*–– it was run by Trump, Pence, and Pompeo. And that channel directed an extortion of the government of Ukraine in exchange for dirt on Biden. Full stop."

19. She earlier threw it to reporter Garrett Haake in the Capitol

describing where he was as m “in the blast radius.”

Brian Williams called it “blowtorch testimony.” Guess we’re WAY beyond some “smoking gun.”

Trump got well and truly Trumped today.

3. They do keep leaving out the bag man/enforcer/messenger Rudy

There's a regular channel, and Rudy's running on the top of the train with his meager hair blowing in the wind.

5. Giuliani will appear later, as the fall guy for the whole thing.

Nobody gives a damn what happens to Rudy, so he'll be sacrificed on the altar of subterfuge and distraction before long.

"We were deceived by Giuliani," it will be said. "We trusted him, but he betrayed us. Off with his head." His sacrifice will be planned to serve to purify the others and absolve them. That's probably the plan, anyhow.

Trump will lead the way, "I always had the greatest respect for 'America's Mayor.' How was I to know he would betray me?"

I think that will be the strategy, anyhow. I don't think it will work, though.

8. I agree it will not work

Unless Giuliani knows that there is a pardon for him, but even then, his ego is such that he won't want to be implicated as a dirtbag even though he is one.

Giuliani knows where all the bodies are buried and if he thinks that he is being thrown under the bus, he will save his own butt.

9. Yes, Giuliani will not be a loyal guy. He'll flip if they do that and put them

all away. Assuming he survives, anyhow. He's old, you know. Things happen to old people, sometimes.

However, I don't necessarily count on it. Things change quickly and there's momentum. I just don't know.

13. In Castor's defense, he had very little to work with

I feel that Sondland's opening statement was more than enough, no wonder Nunes told Schiff they wanted the recess, they had to change a lot of what they had prepared, Sondland made the case against trump on that statement.

Dan Goldberg and Schiff have been brilliant.

16. Do not insult a box of Rocks

His opening, “Welcome for a day of smearing” after the shameful shit yesterday against a military hero, made this veteran vomit. Give us a hour or so with him, cows will be the least of his hell to come. Chick Fillet should denounce his lying ass. Not very Jesusy.

I'll bet Chairman Schiff can smell the fear.

25. At one point, I swear Castor had run out of useful or effective questions and seemed to

struggling to continue. He looked like: "Eh, um, er, I don't know, I got nothing." Goldberg, OTOH, was calm, organized and nailed his points.

except for jacketoff Jordan screaming. The only thing they can do now is call Sondland a "known liar". And I bet that's exactly what they are going to do.

27. To borrow a phrase from Rick Perry... "OOPS!"

I cannot decide if Sondland is merely a moron or merely trying to save his own ass, or both (I suspect both, I am not ruling out merely moron, but I suspect merely ass-saving is insufficient as an explanation).
