    Re: No Quid Pro Quo

    Title of thread should be Yes! Quid Pro Quo!
    Until my lawyer tells me it isn't necessarily so.
    Walk back my truthful lies and pretend I never told all ya'll to get over it.
    I'm here until I am no longer at the pleasure of the chief.
    Don't forget to tip your waitress.

    No, in that scenario, it usually ends up being a duck-billed platypus.

    He said the media was “misconstruing” his comments to the press “to advance a biased and political witch hunt against President Trump.”
    “Let me be clear, there was absolutely no quid pro quo between Ukrainian military aid and any investigation into the 2016 election,” Mulvaney said. “The president never told me to withhold any money until the Ukrainians did anything related to the server.”

    Please retract or risk being identified a person who will lie if it advances the Dem agenda.
    You want someone to retract, based on a obvious walk-back trying it's level best to be a retraction itself?
    That's funny.

    Four small problems with this:

    1)He was quoting Trump, not making the suggestion himself.
    2)He said he didn’t know if Trump was being truthful when Trump said no qui pro quo.
    3)Sondland warned Senator Johnson that there was a quid pro quo, demonstrating that he himself believed it was a quid pro quo.

    Do you believe someone who had been working with Ukraine for months was actually unaware of a connection between Burisma and the Bidens? Rudy had just been hammering that on the air in person, and many major print outlets had reported on that, for MONTHS.

    Sondland had been asked to work with Rudy, didn't like it but agreed to it, and then buried his head about the many public statements by Rudy touching DIRECTLY on the work he was doing in Ukraine. I don't believe any diplomat can be that incompetent, with such an incompetent staff.

    Maybe, "I didn't know!!!" works legally on some way, but anyone who believes Sondland is IMO a complete idiot.

    We all heard the words come out of his mouth. Unedited.

    How many times are you gonna try the "so what had happened was" bit.

    Or better the song with "caught banging on the bathroom floor. It wasn't me!" As the refrain. (I hear that song every time y'all do it)

    He testified about what Trump told him?

    Is it time for you to email Trump for a fresh pair of his dirty tighty whities because the ones you've been carrying in your mouth are getting soggy?
    It's disgraceful. I'm going to maybe and I'm looking at it very seriously. We're doing some other things that you probably noticed like some of the very important things that we're doing now. But we're looking at it very seriously because you can't do that. - President Donald J. Trump

    You're completely wrong.

    To Quote Mulveney,

    GET OVER IT.

    but, but, but Trump is up a creek with a heavily leaking boat and without any life vests or oars. More importantly, the Piranhas are many and surrounding the boat. The future is grim and most everyone is applauding what the end result is likely to be.
