Breaking News: Witness Implicates Trump
He doesn't look like your normal male celebrity - think Tom Selleck or Tom Cruise - but Gordon Sondland could steal the day today as he's at the center of the whole Ukraine scandal.
Sondland, a political appointee who donated $1 million to Trump's inauguration, was part of Trump's shadow foreign policy campaign designed to dig up dirt on his 2020 political opponent Joe Biden.
A witness testified that Sondland spoke with Trump frequently and in one conversation assured Trump, "That he (President Zelensky) loves your ass" and "will go along with the request to go public about an investigation into Biden."
Sondland's appearance today represents a laser focus on bribery.
A word Republicans have been doing somersaults around in order to muddy up the central charge in the impeachment hearing.
The reason Sondland is the star today is because what he represents, and what he knows. He knows the linkage between Trump and his demands for the Ukrainian president to investigate his political rival Joe Biden.
He's a political appointee that was representing Trump's personal interest... and he's the first to openly expose Trump's true intentions by sharing his conversation with him with others.
Any pretense about Trump caring about corruption in the Ukraine before his own personal feelings, has been peeled away by Sondland's confession going into today's testimony.
Time for me to walk on down the road....
