26. GS: Noun + verb + Trump + Giuliani + Pompeo + Volker + Burisma no Biden equals no smoke or fire

Just looks that way to me, so far.

Media can only go with Sondland's opening written statement to affect public opinion; if they go with testimony, they've got equivocation, which affects public opinion, too.

At least Sondland's showed up. Not sure that it's advanced the Democrats' case.

Umm, I'm pretty sure those instances withholding of aid came with real foreign policy that involved bipartisan, Congressional support.

THOSE WERE NOT FOR THE PERSONAL BENEFIT OF THE SERVING PRESIDENT. THOSE WEREN'T BRIBES TO TAKEDOWN POLITICAL OPPONENTS.

be Pompeo, Giuliani and Mulvaney, according to afternoon testimoney. Fall guys for Trump.

Without his equivocation, Dems already have evidence now about obstruction for Pompeo, conspiracy for Giuliani, obstruction from Mulvaney, and hard evidence from Trump himself.

He did not come up through the Foreign Service, State Department, military, etc. He has no frame of reference for what a center lane even looks like. He is a dupe who was living out a pipe dream in Europe as an Ambassador. The others wanted him in on it because he wouldn't fully understand what was going on.

81. Oh, c'mon, Gymmy. Murphy brought up the withholding of aid days after it had already

Been reported in the media. Of course it was a topic, but that doesnít make the quid pro quo scheme some bipartisan arrangement.

CNN reported the aid holdup on Aug 30 & the meeting of Murphy and johnson with Zelensky happened on Sept 5.

"I don't want to characterize"
"I know now, but I didn't know then"
"I understand your hypothetical"
"With 20 20 hindsight"
"Burisma not Biden"

is annoying. I am SO GLAD Maloney finally nailed him on this. He HAS NOT been forthright.

102. Sondland thinks he got away with "please be clear about what you're asking"

but what he really got was a potential perjury charge. Refusing to answer a question when you know the answer is as bad as making up an answer. Both answers are untrue.
