On Sondland’s impeachment testimony

Ben Key:

How to interpret Sondland’s impeachment testimony. Hint, it is very bad news for the Republicans and Trump.

“I know that members of this committee have frequently framed these complicated issues in the form of a simple question: Was there a ‘quid pro quo?’  With regard to the requested White House call and White House meeting, the answer is yes.”

Ambassador Gordon Sondland

Translation: Yes. Trump did in fact try to commit Extortion, Bribery, and Blackmail.

Thank you Sondland.

Sonland said he acted “at the express direction of the president of the United States.”

Translation: Trump was directly involved and was calling the shots.

Again, thank you Sondland.

Sondland then said “there was no secret” and “Everyone was in the loop.”

This is completely irrelevant. If everyone involved including the POTUS, ambassadors, Sondland, and Giuliani knew that Trump was guilty of Extortion, Bribery, and Blackmail that does not make it right. He was still guilty of Extortion, Bribery, and Blackmail!

Again, thank you Sondland.

Today was a very good day, but not for Trump and his supporters.
