    Can you show me that in our Constitution?

    Look at what just happened to Prince Andrew - he misjudged an interview.
    Prince who?

    So, since you're applying that standard to the British monarchy, Queen Elizabeth should be removed from the throne since no criminal conduct has been proven about her.


    Prove, then remove.

    One of the Republicans observed that some of Sondland's answers were circular and contradictory.

    Worth watching. Sondland relates the phone call where President Trump emphatically told him, "I don't want any quid pro quo."



    I'm not sure how Democrats can spin this as anything but devastating to their impeachment narrative.

    I came here to see how you are psychologically coping with today's testimony being absolutely damning for Trump.

    I guess the answer is that there's no level of reality or evidence you can't spin.

    You're aware that Tim Morrison and Kurt Volker were both Republican-requested witnesses? Though it's understandable if you didn't realize this because their testimony helped put nails in Trump's coffin rather than exonerating him.

    The only questions Schiff has blocked in all the testimony so far that I can find was a couple of attempts to ask the witness about who the whistleblower was. Apart from that all questions seem to be fair game. Schiff wasn't blocking anything else.

    So your claims about Schiff seem to be false.

    Take off your rose-tinted glasses. Sondland's testimony was far from "very good for Trump".

    "Gordon Sondland, the American ambassador to the E.U., pointed the finger at President Donald Trump, Secretary of State Mike Pompeo and former national security adviser John Bolton in explosive public testimony on Wednesday in which he said explicitly that there was a "quid quo pro" linking a White House visit by Ukraine's president to investigations into a political opponent of the president".

    The only damaging thing was Sondland's opening statement which he proceeded to contradict during cross examination.
