BILL KRISTOL: Pence going full piano player in the whorehouse

Pence going full piano player in the whorehouse. Also, did I miss his expression of confidence that Trump has done nothing wrong?



Statement from Marc Short, Pence chief of staff: “The Vice President never had a conversation with Gordon Sondland about investigating the Bidens, Burisma, or the conditional release of financial aid to Ukraine based upon potential investigations."

2. Whoa!

This is serious damage control mode from GOP'ers everywhere. Now why oh why would Pence's chief of staff have to get out there right now and defend the indefensible?

I am reminded of that 80's tune, "The Heat Is On".

4. But who DID he have a conversation about the Bidens with?

Even Sondland already said that he and Pence didn’t have a conversation about them, right? He said that Pence just acted like he knew the deal and didn’t react or anything.

So this tweet is meaningless except that it leaves open the likelihood that he didnhave a conversation like this with someone else.

7. Pence not speaking with Sondland is not a defense -- He knew, he participated, he's guilty

This is a huge mess for the repugs so they say crime is not crime. Maybe that'll be the 2020 slogan.

9. Note well: Pence statement ACCEPTS "conditional release" as FACT. 'He did it, I was outta da loop'.

14. Sounds like Pence oughta get over to the hearing room pronto

Get sworn in, sit down, and testify under oath Mike. Otherwise, your second-hand excuses are a clanging gong or a sounding brass, which is to say, meaningless.

18. Well played, Mr Kristol

even if I can't stand him!

That hearkens back to Watergate when Senator Saxbe (R-Ohio) expressed some disbelief that White House staff claimed to know nothing about the related events: “kind of reminds me of the piano player in a bawdy house who didn’t know what was going on upstairs.”

Plus, it's fun to see Pence's name in the same sentence as 'whore-house'!

19. Sondland didn't say they had a "conversation",

just that he told Pence and Pence "took it in", but qas not otherwise responsive. However, we do know that Jennifer Williams wrote similar information that was intended to be in Pence's briefing book. Whether it got into Pence's briefing book is not known although Williams was told that it did.
