Is progressive Democrat Rep. Earl Blumenauer ready to call off the boycott of Ambassador Gordon Sondland’s Portland hotels following Sondland’s testimony today? This afternoon, presumably after watching Sondland testify before the House Intelligence Committee, Blumenauer welcomed Sondland to the Resistance.
Gordon Sondland, welcome to the resistance.

Blumenauer called for a boycott of Sondland’s hotels back in early October, and protesters have reportedly been picketing outside and blocking the entrances.

And all through the Mueller investigation, they called it witness tampering whenever President Trump tweeted about anyone involved.
Rep. Mike Conaway asked Sondland about the boycott and protests Wednesday, which he said were probably going on during his testimony.
Rep. Conway is ripping Earl Blumenauer of Oregon for calling for a boycott of Sondland's hotels in Portland.
Says the boycotts hurt Portland residents who work there.

Earl Blumenauer, welcome to carrying out witness intimidation…

Speaking of quid pro quo. Congressman ends boycott in exchange from omissions from opening statement. And we thought the Bidens were corrupt.

I hope Soldland sues you into a hole. There is something deeply wrong with your moral code. Your actions are directly, negatively affecting your constituents. Lambs to slaughter? Boycott call is Despotism <— textbook definition. Disagree – not destroy.

As a patriotic American and an Oregonian, your tweet is yet another example of how unwilling you and your party are to do anything to heal the divide in our nation. Instead of working on things that will bring healing, you choose to fan the flames of hatred and division.

What's the status of the ethics complaint against you?

If there was any doubt that the impeachment hearings are a partisan coup attempt, it's gone now.

So is this an example of a witness intimidation? #Boycott

As an Oregonian I find it offensive that you would urge a boycott of an Oregon business.

You call for a boycott of the man's businesses and then welcome him to the resistance? What's wrong with you? Let me guess, you've recently accused the POTUS of "witness tampering".

Hopefully your colleagues will correct your ANTIFA style behavior.

You have no idea what resistance looks like, thug.

Welcome to the world of intimidation. Boycotting his businesses and then removing the boycott when he did what you wanted, is not someone joyfully joining your resistance. It is simply blackmail.

Is witness tampering a hobby of yours, Rep. Blumenauer?

You're the clown that is into witness intimidation, right?

This sure looks like a quid pro quo:
