    Sondland appears to be in the position of hoping that his written correspondences and several other witnesses also facing legal exposure line up just right.

    His publicly known text messages to date do not inspire confidence in his discretion.

      Jim, is incredibly partisan - that's really undeniable.
      No, there are 47 republicans in the committees and they are operating under House rules established by republicans in 2015 the last time the House rules were changed. And I don't recall you, any of you, complaining when republicans operated according to those same rules during the Benghazi hearing, nor btw did I hear House democrats complaining about the process during those hearings.


      Serious matter or not, the Democrats are acting like a bunch of jackasses, and Schiff is the ring leader.
      I suspect you just don't like the testimony you're hearing and thus are calling democrats jackasses, because democrats are acting responsibly, abiding by republican established House rules. Once all of the testimony is in, the democrats are going to open it up, just like Mueller did once his investigation was over. Being a one time lawman i'm sure you understand why investigations are done this way.
      They've been at this forever, Jim, and it's one "serious matter" after another after another... and it is clearly partisan.
      Forever? Sorry CP, even the Mueller investigation was short in comparison to the investigations into the Nixon and Clinton administrations, even Benghazi was longer if I'm not mistaken (now that was a dog and pony show), but this matter, Trumps Ukraine debacle, just began, and the actual Congressional investigation didn't even begin until Trumps personal protector, the supposed Atty. Gen. of the U.S. Barr, refused to even look into the matter when the whistle was blown.

        There's a reason I asked for a direct quote, Jim, but I should have specified you need to use the "quote function", because Post #109 is actually MM, not me.

          • The New York Times confirms that Ukraine officials were never told that release of military aid was tied to their willingness to investigate Biden:

            To Democrats who say that President Trump’s decision to freeze $391 million in military aid was intended to bully Ukraine’s leader into carrying out investigations for Mr. Trump’s political benefit, the president and his allies have had a simple response: There was no quid pro quo because the Ukrainians did not know assistance had been blocked.

            ...

            In fact, word of the aid freeze had gotten to high-level Ukrainian officials by the first week in August, according to interviews and documents obtained by The New York Times.

            And now for the money quote:

            The communications did not explicitly link the assistance freeze to the push by Mr. Trump and Mr. Giuliani for the investigations.

              Sorry about that, I must have had an episode of dyslexia. Post #106, in reply to NirrinRadd, you asserted that it, this impeachment process, was entirely political.

                  And now we know why Democrats are in full-on panic mode!

                  The launch of a criminal probe allows U.S. Attorney John Durham, the prosecutor tapped by Attorney General William Barr to lead the review, to subpoena witnesses for testimony and documents. The move also authorizes Durham to impanel a grand jury and file charges.

                  As always, The Last Refuge provides in-depth, factual analysis. Required reading for anybody who wants to know what's really going on...

                  And now we have this bombshell that just blew up in the Democrat party's face:

                  Lawyers for former National Security Advisor Michael Flynn reportedly filed a motion on Thursday in which they allege that the Department of Justice manipulated a document to frame their client and is withholding exculpatory evidence.

                  [...]

                  The new defense filing alleges that the government is refusing to turn over a mountain of potentially exculpatory evidence, some of which has begun to emerge in the media — either through leaks or through ongoing inquiries into the origins of the probe into alleged Russia “collusion” with the Trump campaign, later found not to exist.

                  That evidence, Flynn’s legal team alleges, includes an apparent admission by former FBI lawyer Lisa Page ... that she had edited the 302... The edits, the filing alleges, were substantive: they included a claim that Flynn said he did not discuss any sanctions with the Russian ambassador. Flynn’s lawyers allege he merely told the FBI he did not recall, and that the claim he said otherwise was added only after a transcript of his discussion with the ambassador had been leaked to the media.

                    • More about the recent filing by Flynn's lawyer...

                      (1) Lisa Page edited the Flynn 302’s, then forgot when questioned by DOJ officials, then re-remembered when shown her texts. (2) The 302’s themselves were written with lies that do not match notes taken during the interview. (3) The felony leaker of the Flynn-Kislyak phone call is named (James Baker). (4) New texts from Page and Strzok that highlight the entrapment plan. (5) ODNI James Clapper telling WaPo reporter Ignatius to “take the kill shot on Flynn“. (6) The purposeful use of Judge Contreras to take the December 1st 2017 plea agreement; and much, much more.

                      [...]

                      The FBI leaked details of their investigation to the media and then strategized over how they could weaponize the media reports to conduct investigations. Agent Peter Strzok and FBI Counterintelligence Director Bill Priestap discussed if this approach would work.

                      The prosecution then intentionally withheld the text messages from Flynn and the public, in their prior releases, showing Peter Strzok and Lisa Page discussing the Strzok & Priestap strategy sessions on using the leaks. Those texts, clear Brady material, were purposefully hidden by the DOJ, until [Flynn lawyer] Sidney Powell went to find them on her own...

                      [...]

                      The 302’s were modified to make claims that were never made in the interview. The language was purposefully and willfully made to look like something is wasn’t; and in some cases they made it up completely counter to the actual statement given by Mike Flynn...

                        Remember that Flynn has already pleaded guilty to his crimes.

                          Aren't you paying attention? He only pleaded guilty because he was lied to, manipulated with fabricated evidence, and denied access to exculpatory evidence. That's why we're currently deep in the process of his guilty plea being overturned, but I think Judge Sullivan is giving Powell all the time she needs to fully expose the Obama administration's corruption before making his final ruling. And you can be sure that Barr and Durham are paying close attention to that case.

                              You're a nut, MM. But don't feel bad, you apparently have a lot of company out there, although they at least have an excuse, they're just tribal members who are mostly not paying close attention. Btw, you don't plead guilty, unless you are guilty and want to make a deal for a reduced sentence which is what Flynn did.

                                Or you plead guilty because you've been framed, and you and your family are threatened with financial ruin if you don't cooperate. You need to pay attention, Jimmy, because that's exactly what happened, and Attorney Powell has the evidence to prove it. But you don't have to take my word for it. Follow the links I helpfully provided in previous posts and look at the facts for yourself.
