    By the way, this is referred to as "invoking the rule".

    Many judges have "the rule" in place at the beginning of the trial, but either the prosecution or defense can ask, as a point of order, to "invoke the rule".

    Rule 615. Excluding Witnesses

    At a party’s request, the court must order witnesses excluded so that they cannot hear other witnesses’ testimony. Or the court may do so on its own.

    More like supporting the president's version of events because he ‘owed him one’ for his ambassadorship. But later thinking better of it, when it became obvious that his version (i.e. the president’s version) would not hold up in the face of the considerable consistent evidence to the contrary. Sondland has now joined the ever-increasing list of witnesses corroborating the whistle-blower's contention.

    Sometimes we need a scapegoat, and this Otgerscin fellow would make an ideal one. Not least because his name is an anagram of "Escorting", which is most appropriate for a massage board.

    Which again, makes you wonder why you should vote for somebody that says their brain was damaged enough to make them forget basic OPSEC.

    You realize Teallaura is talking about Sondland, not Trump, yes? Do pay attention, Jim.

    Okay, but Sondland is a star witness for impeachment - this seriously hurts your case.

    That was my first thought but Jim is aware Trump hasn't testified so I think he's still talking about Sondland.

    Which is encouraging.
