    When you've lost Ken Starr...

    Starr also said that Sondland’s testimony brought the Ukraine pressure campaign “closer to the President” and that “it doesn’t look good for the President substantively.”

    Starr then mentioned that House Intelligence Committee Chair Adam Schiff (D-CA) discussed the impeachment of former President Richard Nixon.

    “We already have one article of impeachment and the third article of impeachment in the Richard Nixon situation is very clear, it’s very succinct, it’s very well done,” Starr said.

    Starr added that “there will be articles of impeachment” and that Sondland’s testimony “has been one of those bombshell days.”

    “I think we’ve known that. It was just confirmed today and then, substantively, what we heard from [Schiff] just now is: It’s over. We now know — this is his position — we now know that the President in fact committed the crime of bribery,” Starr said. “Something of value. That’s litigable, but I think articles of impeachment are being drawn up if they haven’t already been drawn up. So it depends, will it be bipartisan and so forth. So this obviously has been one of those bombshell days.”
    For Republicans now, unless you are directly at risk of losing your job if you go against Dump (his family and sycophants, GOP Members, Echo Chamber hosts) you know it's over on the merits.

    Today was the Alexander Butterfield day for this impeachment. It still won't result in removal because the Republican voters now are far dumber, more ignorant, and more vicious than 1973, but today was the day Dump lost even the last possibility of escaping the historical verdict of guilt.

    From now on for Republicans it's just about whether you don't mind being remembered as a traitor as long you get to keep licking the lollipop. My read on Republican Senators is none of them will mind. It's Dump's party and McConnell's conscience, now.

    Oh and now the Counsel is trying to make it sound like Sondland purposefully left stuff out of his statement that makes the President look better.
    Come on, the russian Counsel are awesome- they are so good that after hours and hours and hours of Clinton testimony, they got her sent to jail. Oh, wait, that didn't happen.

    They are morons. And it's scary to think how many people think the russians are right, in spite of the total failure of ANYONE going to jail over their allegations.

    Whereas actual people surrounding this president are wearing jump suits as we speak. Others are heading that way, too.

    Apparently many of the Republicans had left the chamber before Sondland even finished his testimony. They literally "aint tryin to hear that."

    My initial thought here was that, surely, Starr turned on Trump months, if not years ago. Then I saw his quotes in the WP from just three weeks ago:
    Quote Originally Posted by Washington Post
    Starr wasn’t finished. During this week’s interview, he also absolved Trump of guilt, both for obstruction of justice in the Mueller inquiry and for wrongdoing in the Ukraine quid pro quo, saying Trump’s “intent” was pure. Starr protested that Trump “is being held to a remarkable standard” in which we are “over-criminalizing the conduct of the business of government.”

    Seriously? From the man who pushed to impeach a president for lying about oral sex in a civil deposition? Back then, Starr rejected the argument that Clinton’s “intent” in lying was to avoid embarrassment, not to perjure himself.

    Starr, still going, suggested this week that impeachment is a plot by Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) to seize the presidency. A “conflict of interest is that the speaker of the House is guiding this process when she is third in succession,” he argued. “She will do well if she can have the elimination of Donald Trump from office and then Vice President Pence somehow.”
    That's a very sharp turn.

    I assumed it was a shop because some of the words were spelled correctly. That being real is just amazing

    A bunch of them were attending the Joni Ernst press conference where she was announcing her version of the VAWA, which is substantially different from the version that passed the House. (Spoiler alert: Miss Thundercat is going to LOVE it!)

    Yeah, but later, he went on to say how Sondland's failure to include Trump's "I want nothing" statement in his opening remarks was very peculiar, and reflected very well on the president.
    What kind of cheese are you planning to put on top?
