    Impeachment Hearing - Wednesday Nov 20 - Live Reaction

    Today on tap:

    In the morning
    Gordon Sondland: Sondland, the U.S. ambassador to the European Union, is expected to be the week's biggest witness. He revised his closed-door testimony to state that he told an aide to Zelensky that military assistance would not be released until Zelensky issued a statement agreeing to investigate Burisma, a gas company with ties to Biden's son.


    This afternoon/evening

    Laura Cooper: Cooper, the deputy assistant secretary of defense, said in her closed-door testimony that Trump directed the freezing of military aid via the Office of Management and Budget over corruption concerns.

    David Hale
    : Hale, the undersecretary of state for political affairs, spoke to what many officials described as Yovanovitch's questionable removal as ambassador to Ukraine during his closed-door testimony.

    I am not sure what you think but after yesterday, I like it better when there is one session in a day. Yesterday was way too long and I am expecting the same today and tomorrow.

    If this goes into next week, Please, please one session a day only.

    I've got my Tivo set so I can try to catch some of Sondland's testimony later.
    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

    Should be interesting to see whether he admits to the phone call or pleads the 5th.

    If he pleads the 5th, it is over. There may still be some gray areas, but by and large pleading the 5th does not go over well with the general public.
    Trump and Co, have a tight-rope to walk today, they need him to stay on point, and not reveal too much, while also not coming across as though he is covering for POTUS.
    I don't think Sondland has the mojo to do this, convincingly.

    The House impeachment "inquiry" hearings seem to be aimed at presenting what (carefully selected?) US government folks thought that Ukrainian government officials were being told and what those Ukrainians assumed the US aid situation to be. Why not get *gasp* the actual Ukrainian government officials (the alleged victims of Trump's extortion?) to tell us exactly what they were told and by who?

    Just heard excerpts from Sondland's opening statement. Forget him taking the 5th. Sondland is going to do the deed!

    I wish I could watch live, but I have to attend a thing with the head of a U.S. Department of Labor head talking about yadda yadda yadda.....(and take extensive notes)
