US Ambassador to the European Union Gordon Sondland will testify today that there was a quid pro quo as it relates to "the requested White House call and White House meeting," according to a copy of his opening remarks:

"I know that members of this Committee have frequently framed these complicated issues in the form of a simple question: Was there a “quid pro quo?” As I testified previously, with regard to the requested White House call and White House meeting, the answer is yes."

Trump Regularly 'Can't Remember What He's Said Or Been Told,' White House Insider Says

Source: Newsweek

President Donald Trump regularly struggles to "remember what he's said or been told," an anonymous senior government official behind a new exposé on the inner workings of the White House has claimed.

Much of the nearly 260 pages of the anonymous official's tome, A Warning, which hit bookshelves on Tuesday, has been dedicated to sounding the alarm about Trump's alarming behavior.

While the anonymous author, who is described only as a "senior official in the Trump administration" admits they are not "qualified to diagnose the president's mental acuity,"

Often, they say, "the president also can't remember what he's said or been told."

Nikki Haley Used System for Unclassified Material to Send 'Confidential' Information

Source: Daily Beast

North Korea had just tested an intercontinental ballistic missile capable of hitting Alaska, and the Trump administration was scrambling to react. But it seems Nikki Haley, Trump’s ambassador to the United Nations, had lost her password for classified communications.

That’s why on that fraught July 4, 2017, she was typing away on her BlackBerry 10 smartphone, sending “confidential” information over a system meant only for unclassified material.

Haley was in a rush as she headed to her office—“On my way in”—shooting emails back and forth with top aides who’d been with her since she was governor of South Carolina. She needed to make a statement, and they were drafting it for her. “Let’s clean this up,” she writes after looking at some of the copy. “Pretty this up for me,” she says.

The next day we discover what the problem is with her communications. “Can’t find my password for the high side,” she writes.

Ex-envoy testifies he was 'surprised' by additional attempts to get Ukraine President to announce Bi

Source: CNN

Former US Special Envoy Kurt Volker told lawmakers Tuesday that he was "surprised" to learn there had been additional conversations about the Ukrainian President announcing an investigation into President Donald Trump's political rivals.

Volker's testimony before impeachment investigators is a key component of the House's inquiry, as he was one of the so-called "three amigos" who met with Trump on Ukraine policy and worked directly with Trump's personal attorney Rudy Giuliani to help Ukraine draft a statement on investigations.

Republicans have seized on his previous closed-door testimony in which he said he saw no evidence of a quid pro quo conditioning US security aid and a one-on-one meeting on an investigation.

But Volker, the first witness in the House's impeachment inquiry, said that since his initial testimony "a great deal of additional information and perspectives have come to light."

BREAKING: Buttigieg takes lead in NH Primary poll...


Sanders lives next door and only gets 9%?

You're the Minority Counsel, you've done a lousy job so far, and now you have to question Ambassador Volker who's blown up every Republican talking point. What's the first question you ask?
