End of the Road?

From DAILY BEAST:

During the first break in Wednesday’s impeachment hearings—which featured U.S. Ambassador to the EU and million-dollar Trump donor Gordon Sondland implicating President Donald Trump in a quid pro quo with Ukraine—Fox News anchor Chris Wallace declared that Sondland “took out the bus and ran it over” President Donald Trump and a number of his allies and aides.

“I think what Gordon Sondland was trying to do here is protect himself more than he is to protect anybody else,” Wallace said during Fox News’ special coverage.

“To a certain degree, he took out the bus and ran over President Trump, Vice President Pence, Mike Pompeo, John Bolton, Rudy Giuliani, Mick Mulvaney,” he added. “He implicates all of them.”

Better Call Saul…I mean John

From Law.com:

John Eisenberg, the top lawyer for the National Security Council and a former Kirkland & Ellis partner, has refused to sit for questioning in the House impeachment inquiry. But he figured prominently at Tuesday’s hearing as House lawmakers delved into the internal White House alarm over Trump’s apparent effort to leverage congressionally approved military aid to Ukraine for assistance against a domestic political opponent.

On the Kiev of Destruction

From CBS News:

Washington — The diplomatic official who allegedly overheard President Trump ask about the status of “investigations” soon after his July phone call with the Ukrainian president is expected to appear before House lawmakers for a closed-door hearing on Friday.

David Holmes is the staffer referenced by diplomat Bill Taylor in testimony before the House Intelligence Committee on Wednesday, three sources familiar with the matter tell CBS News. Holmes is a counselor for political affairs at the U.S. embassy in Kiev, according to the embassy’s website.

At the first public hearings of the impeachment inquiry, Taylor testified that a member of his staff, whom he did not name, was with U.S. Ambassador to the E.U. Gordon Sondland at a restaurant on July 26 when the ambassador placed a call to Mr. Trump.

From GQ:

On Wednesday, the House Intelligence Committee held its first public hearings for the impeachment inquiry of Donald Trump. U.S. diplomat Bill Taylor gave a particularly damning testimony about the president’s efforts to withhold military aid from the Ukrainian president in an attempt to force him to announce a corruption investigation of former vice president Joe Biden. For the most part, Republican lawmakers used it as an opportunity to grandstand: Ohio’s Jim Jordan and California’s Devin Nunes, in particular, made loud efforts to distract from the facts at hand.

And now for a little Lev-ity

WASHINGTON (Reuters) – Lev Parnas, an indicted Ukrainian-American businessman who has ties to President Donald Trump’s personal lawyer, Rudy Giuliani, is now prepared to comply with requests for records and testimony from congressional impeachment investigators, his lawyer told Reuters on Monday.

Ruh roh! Maybe ol’ Lev might want to lay low. His old buddy Rudy could give him some pointers on disguises.

Now Rudy is just phoning his corruption in

From Raw Story via Salon:

Trump attorney Rudy Giuliani has stepped in it — again.

NBC News reports that the former New York mayor earlier this month unwittingly butt-dialed one of its reporters and left a three-minute voice message in which he discussed business dealings in Bahrain and spouted unfounded conspiracy theories about former Vice President Joe Biden.

Stunted Intellect

From THE HILL:

“The View” co-host Meghan McCain on Thursday ripped Rep. Matt Gaetz (R-Fla.) after a group of GOP lawmakers stormed a closed-door impeachment proceeding on Capitol Hill.

“By the way, Matt Gaetz, when did you want to become a TV star?” McCain said. “You want to do that? Get the hell out of Congress. Get a TV job.”
