In case you watched the impeachment hearings Wednesday with Ambassador Gordon Sondland but weren’t sure what to think about them, CNN has come up with a list of five takeaways from Sondland’s “bombshell” testimony.
US Ambassador to the European Union Gordon Sondland changed the course of the House impeachment inquiry into President Trump. Here are five takeaways from Sondland's bombshell testimony: https://t.co/4BTkxakc4d

Rep. Mark Meadows says at least three of those bombshells are duds.
Respectfully… at least 3 of the 5 “takeaways” listed in this article explicitly collapsed under questioning – when Gordon Sondland admitted no one had ever told him of a quid pro quo, and it was all based on his “presumption” https://t.co/fm4VUCTFQy

So many bombshells that have turned out to be duds. Is this another one? 🧐

The biggest takeaway is how the media spins every dud testimony into a “bombshell”. It’s crazy.
1. Biden appeared to Conflict w Berisma.
2. Trump said No Quid Pro Quo
3. Ukraine confirms #2.
4. Trump helped Ukraine.
5. Aid Released, No preconditions

5 take aways
1. Trump said no quid pro quo
2. Security assistance was never discussed
3. Biden wasn’t mentioned, Burisma was
4. Everything else was his assumptions
5. CNN was caught on camera saying they were told to push impeachment

We actually watched it. Did you or type up a preconceived hit piece. Sondland’s bombshell was that Trump personally told him(no hearsay) that he wanted nothing. Sondland also said he has no knowledge of aid being tied to investigating the Bidens.

Utter nonsense. Start listening to actual testimony and stop acting as court stenographers for Schiff. Oh, and where's the coverage of Burisma corruption indictments revealed today?

@CNN you guys are so far off the mark you're inserting things that you're stating are fact when in fact there was no facts there were feelings and presumption that's it! Misleading the public is not going to be the greatest in the end for you guys

What were you watching? The afternoon was a disaster for the Democrats after Sondland admitted there was actually nothing there

He said he "presumed". Nothing was changed that the President never asked anyone for quid-pro-quo.

"the ambassador said he was "under the impression'"
I see you pay as little attention to your reporting as there rest of the world does.

He PRESUMED all damn day #fakenews
— Lisa Purdue (@LisaPurdue2) November 20, 2019
He PRESUMED! As much as you want it to be it’s not a “bombshell.”
— Diane Lynn Feck (@rddotinblustate) November 20, 2019
Based on his presumptions. You forgot that part.

His assumption is not Evidence #FAKENEWS
— Victor Ramos (@RoadglideVic) November 20, 2019
Completely bogus fake news. These take always were blown away under questioning. Presuming is not a good look for democrats
— Patriot Ready (@RadBoots) November 21, 2019
Bombshell? Lmao. On what he mistakenly perceived
Keep feeding the false narrative

Pompeo, Perry and Pence all reject Sondland’s suppositions.
— Politics101 (@NBfromLB) November 20, 2019
Sondland had no direct evidence regarding the impeachment. CNN lying as usual.
— A J Burton (@bullburton) November 21, 2019
You had to change your chyron in mid-testimony of Gordon Sondland because Schiff lied to you about what he said & you a$$e$ fell for it. Now you want us to believe this article but have left out all the testimony that Republicans elicited making Sondland look like an idiot.

Lol "bombshell". Swalwell's farts are more of a bombshell than these impeachment hearings.

Bombshell eh? Not sure that means what you think it means
— Spartan6 (@Spartan51474670) November 20, 2019
Bombshell? He made the whole damn thing up. His testimony was destroyed by Jim Jordan. This is why CNN is fake news.

Changed the course? Meaning it was going nowhere prior? Clowns
