: "All four of Gordon Sondland's lawyers are Democrat Donors." @TuckerCarlson Despite this, big win today for Republicans
: Today I opened a major Apple Manufacturing plant in Texas that will bring high paying jobs back to America. Today Nancy Pelosi closed Congress because she doesn't care about American Workers

Schiff: "For over a year, I resisted this whole idea of going down the road to impeachment. But it was made necessary — and not by the whistleblower. But by the actions of the president."
New statement from @statedeptspox: "Gordon Sondland never told Secretary Pompeo that he believed the President was linking aid to investigations of political opponents. Any suggestions to the contrary is flat out false."
: .."I WANT NOTHING. I WANT NOTHING. I WANT NO QUID PRO QUO. TELL PRESIDENT ZELENSKY TO DO THE RIGHT THING." Later, Ambassador Sondland said that I told him, "Good, go tell the truth." This Witch Hunt must end NOW. So bad for our Country
: Impeachment Witch Hunt is OVER. Ambassador Sondland asks U.S. President (me): "What do you want from Ukraine I keep hearing all these different ideas & theories. What do you want It was a very abrupt conversation. He was not in a good mood. He (the President) just said,"
: We join families of Kevin King & Tim Weeks in celebrating their release from Taliban captivity. Thanks to President Ghani for his courageous support. Let's hope this leads to more good things on the peace front like a ceasefire that will help end this long war. Proud of my team

Giuliani has deleted his morning tweet, where he claimed Volker asked him to help with Ukraine, and he spoke mostly with Volker. One possible motive: It contradicted Rudy's Nov 8 claim that he was in Ukraine "solely as a defense attorney to defend my client against false charges"
'Mr. Sondland told the committee. "We did not want to work with Mr. Giuliani. Simply put, we were playing the hand we were dealt." With no alternative, he said, "we followed the president's orders."'

Amb. Sondland says that telling President Trump in a phone call that Ukrainian President Zelenskiy "loves your ass" does "sound like something that I would say," and adds that he and the president communicate "in a lot of 3- and 4-letter words."
"If we wanted to get anything done with Ukraine, it was apparent we needed to talk to" @RudyGiuliani, testifies @USAmbEU
"By the end of the August, my belief was that if Ukraine did something to demonstrate a serious intention to fight corruption -and specifically addressing Burisma and the 2016 (server issue) - then the hold on military aid would be lifted," testifies @USAmbEU
: Nancy Pelosi will go down as the least productive Speaker of the House in history. She is dominated by AOC Plus 3 and the Radical Left. Mexico and Canada, after waiting for 6 months to be approved, are ready to flee - and who can blame them Too bad
Sondland spoke with Zelensky reps in mid May about the investigations. That fact was then transmitted to top officials in the White House including Fiona Hill. This was before Sondland's first publicly known meeting with Trump May 23
: "White House Confidence Grows As Hearings Wear On." @WashTimes This is just an attempted takedown of the Republican Party by the Do Nothing Democrats. It will never work. 2020
Gordon Sondland, a key ambassador testifying today in the impeachment inquiry, kept Secretary of State Mike Pompeo updated as the Ukraine pressure campaign unfolded
: Congressman Van Drew (D-NJ): We've spent millions of Dollars, in my opinion, tons of money, tons of time, tons of hurt, fracturing the Nation apart. I haven't seen this to be a good thing."
#ImpeachmentHearings Ambassador #KurtVolker: President Trump held "a chronically negative view" of Ukraine
Volker says Trump was getting a negative and inaccurate view of Ukraine from Giuliani
Volker: "At no time was I aware of, or knowingly took part in, any effort to urge Ukraine to investigate former Vice President Biden." "My role was not some irregular channel, but the official channel" - adds he kept the Secretaries of State & Defense & Bolton "well-informed"

Big change from Volker's first testimony to his opening statement today. Left: he says "no" when asked categorically whether investigations were brought up in July 10 meeting Right: He says Sondland did bring up investigations, and he found it "inappropriate"
Day 3 of public impeachment hearings continue with Kurt Volker, Former Special Envoy to Ukraine and Tim Morrison, NSC Special Assistant to the President
Schiff: "Ukraine is fighting our fight against the Russians, against their expansionism. That's our fight too that's why we support Ukraine with the military aid that we have"
At Cabinet Meeting, Pres Trump says he watched this morning's impeachment hearing and Republicans "are absolutely killing it." He says Democrats are using the hearings as a political game - but his polls are highest
