“I just spoke up and I said, ‘it appears that everything is stalled until this statement gets made,’ something, words to that effect,” Sondland said, referring to the statement President Donald Trump wanted Zelensky to make announcing the bogus investigations into the Bidens and the 2016 election. “And that’s what I believed to be the case, based on, you know, the work that the three of us had been doing: Volker, Perry and myself.

Yeah, I think we're going to need to have the VP come on down for a little testimony chat.

5. But of course, Pence has "no recollection" of that

I have to say that republicans all have memory problems, they cannot recall very much of what they do. I would like to know if Sondland beat Al Gonzalez (GW Bush's attorney and AG during GW) who I believe said "I don't recall" 145 times? Something like that, in just one hearing.
