It was just yesterday when Twitchy featured video of Rep. Mike Turner doing a job on former envoy to Ukraine Kurt Volker and National Security Council aide Tim Morrison. “You just took apart, like, their entire case,” he concluded after questioning the pair.
It seems like the goalposts for the Democrats moved again Wednesday; instead of claiming President Trump withheld aid from Ukraine in exchange for an investigation into Burisma and the Bidens, the focus instead was on whether Trump had pressured Ukraine’s president to announce an investigation in exchange for a White House visit. The two eventually met in New York and no investigation was started.
In this clip, Turner not only gets Sondland to admit it was only presumption that Trump was tying military aid to the investigation — he calls out CNN for running a bogus banner headline.
This is huge. @RepMikeTurner: "Nobody else on this planet told you that Donald Trump was tying aid to these investigations, is that correct?"
Ambassador Sondland: "Yes."

Chairman Schiff just said the testimony and evidence Gordon Sondland brought today was "deeply troubling."
Your reminder of what that testimony was… in Gordon Sondland's own words:

@RepAdamSchiff should be held accountable for this waste of taxpayer time and taxpayer money. What is he trying to hide?

Thank you @RepMikeTurner !! I was astounded when Schiff came out and said the OPPOSITE of what I heard Sondland say! Is he trying to reach those who are NOT watching? This is an impeachment hearing not based on personal assumptions and heard it from a friend testimony!

The founding fathers never intended for impeachment to be used as a weapon. It’s a fact that they feared it.
I wonder if Schiff knows that he isn’t 1/1000 of a man or leader than any of the framers were? The fact remains Schiff is the tyranny that they wanted to protect us from.

I seriously want to know where we get these dolts for ambassadors.
No wonder we need to drain the swamp. These guys have nothing but self-interest.

Every witness is the Democrats’ star witness until they aren’t, or at least that’s how it’s been playing out. Maybe they could pull in the whistleblower and really have a star witness.
