Impeachment Inquiry Hearing: Quid Pro Quo, Bribery, Extortion?

Quid Pro a minimum

As the world watches the undoing of a corrupt US President and his cabal, we infrequently post regarding the current US House of Representatives Impeachment Inquiry. What follows are a few noteworthy reports (some humorous, some serious, all poignant).

To start, we offer a brief 'key highlights" video.

Let's follow with a CNN fact-checking regarding the proceedings, witness and Trump's claims of innocence. The fact-check was posted on Yahoo News.

Trump claims to not really know EU Ambassador Gordan Sondland. Well...

Image may contain: 1 person, smiling

A key moment that will surely join the annuals of US Congressional history.  Sondland states he is less than appreciative as he has been forthcoming with Congressman Mahoney. The segment is three-plus minutes but very important to view.

Rep. Jackie Speier and her five minutes with Sondland.  Of particular note is an interchange between Speier and a Republican congressional facilitator (at the 1:47 minute mark).  Sadly the GOP res seems to lunge out with what they feel are quips without fully assessing the world in which they live. A world overwhelmingly laid to bare via Donald J, Trump. If I am not mistaken even the interrupting Republican offered an unintentional "touche" smile after the Speier retort.

The ultimate hearing "foot in mouth" and lack of foresight is attributed by Ohio Republican Rep. Jim Jordan.

Maybe congressional should defer hearing questioning to congressional attorneys. Especially in the case of the GOP.

If you wish to view a more straightforward highlight video regarding Sondlands testimony, Now This offers a segment you may find informative.

Huffington Post also has published a piece of critical testimony from one of today's fact witnesses.
