A.) Sondland didn’t know and still doesn’t why aid was held up.
He, as said here, “presumed” it was because of corruption. Kellyanne brought this up.
He then told Yermak his assumption.
Presumption and assuming on Sondland’s part don’t prove anything and certainly not quid pro quo.
As said here, he supposedly tells Yermak the aid may not be released without an anti-corruption statement.
Again, as stated here, Sondland says this was also based upon an assumption.
Sondland also said when he spoke with Trump that Trump wanted no quid pro quo with Ukraine.
It is either the aforementioned, or B.) Sondland flipped.
If he did flip his script was he lying then or now? If he is lying his testimony is not credible.
It really doesnt matter what lies these fake witnesses are suborned into telling - everyone knows the House Democrat impeachment process is a complete farce. It is so thoroughly partisan, and so obviously an abuse of the impeachment clause, that the Senate will relish dismissing it outright, and with prejudice.
That is why House Democrats are slow walking it every step of the way - they know their whole impeachment fantasy will go poof as soon as the Senate gets it - and it will be brushed off as the nothing burger it is.
This reminds me of one of those high school revenge dramas where a jilted boyfriend decides to spread nasty lies about his innocent ex-girlfriend being a slut. Meanwhile, nobody believes him, everyone knows what is really going on - the guy is just butt-hurt because she broke up with him. He thinks hes trashing her reputation, but really hes only trashing his own.
Thats the House Democrats - they imagine they are going to hound President Trump from office in a Watergate-type scandal, but in fact, they are disgracing themselves, and all but ensuring his re-election.
