Oops.

THE HOUSE Intelligence Committee on Tuesday heard from two former Trump administration officials whose testimony was requested by Republicans. So it was striking that the stories they told simply added to the evidence that President Trump abused his office and twisted long-standing U.S. policy in Ukraine to serve his personal political interests.
Kurt Volker, the former special envoy to Ukraine, and Tim Morrison, the National Security Council’s former senior director covering Russia and Ukraine, are Republicans who were on the list of witnesses for the impeachment inquiry drawn up by Rep. Devin Nunes (Calif.), the committee’s ranking Republican. But their testimony was sharply at odds with the stories about Ukraine peddled by Mr. Nunes.
Mr. Nunes has been slavishly pushing Mr. Trump’s false narratives: that Ukraine rather than Russia intervened in the 2016 election and that Joe Biden, as vice president, tried to protect a Ukrainian gas company that employed his son as a board member. Mr. Volker testified that the allegations against Mr. Biden were “not credible” and that asking for an investigation of him was “unacceptable.” As for the claims about Ukrainian interference in the election, he said, “I didn’t believe there was anything there to begin with.”

I understand the desire of Volker and Morrison to cover their own asses for their participation in the Ukraine extortion scheme, and their desire to protect President Trump, and yet they do fully understand the consequences of lying to Congress under oath.

The truth has been exposed, and it's damning as hell.

Those were the best witnesses the Republicans could find? What a Hoot! On top of it all, Volker gave Biden an entire campaign commercial to close the deal on Super Tuesday. What a glowing testimonial. Devin and Gym were pooping their pantaloons!

Gordon Sondland is set to implicate at Trump, Mike Pompeo and John Bolton in his testimony. "They knew what we were doing and why," Sondland plans to say. "Everyone was in the loop. It was no secret." Sondland will say explicitly there was a quid quo pro.

And the GOP will whine about the whistleblower! ROFL
