Funny how Trump Loyalists have a “Sudden Recollection” when they are Facing down serious Jail Time

Grand Juries are behind closed doors for a reason. So has been the Congress’ Impeachment Inquiry.  You don’t want all the members of the Criminal Conspiracy — to compare notes on what everyone else is saying.  You don’t want the cabal to have a chance to get their “stories straight” …

Such a precaution leads to embarrassing and humorous “restorations of memory lapses” — like we witnessed today, in this rush “revised testimony” …

Sondland, Trump’s appointee, changes testimony to say there was clear quid pro quo

by Mike Lillis and Oliva Beavers, TheHill —  11/05/19

[…]

[Gordon] Sondland, a Republican mega-donor who gave $1 million to Trump’s inauguration, was interviewed by lawmakers behind closed doors on Oct. 17 but revised his testimony on Monday, after a string of subsequent witnesses appeared before the three committees leading the impeachment investigation.

In the revision, Sondland said he recalled a Sept. 1 meeting with Andriy Yermak, a top aide to Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky, in which the aid was contingent on a public statement from Zelensky regarding launching probes that would benefit Trump politically.

“After a large meeting, I now recall speaking individually with Mr. Yermak, where I said that resumption of U.S. aid would likely not occur until Ukraine provided the public anti-corruption statement that we had been discussing for many weeks,” Sondland said.

So the Trump EU Ambassador Sondland decided to throw everyone else under the Trump Bus — rather than spend a significant time in Jail himselfSuddenly he remembers ‘delivering the terms’ of “Trump’s Quid-pro-Quo” himself, to a top official in the new Ukrainian administration.

Funny, how having time to “consider your options” will do that to a person.  Staying true to his “Trump Loyalty Oath” — is just not worth the 3-5 years in the Lockdown Hotel, he would have to pay in exchange for the “privilege” of being just another Trump Stooge.

Rats jumping out of Trump ship
A Trump Oath and a vow of Silence — will get you about 3-5 on Perjury Charges, if you’re lucky.

Let’s hope that more former Trump Loyalists are quick to follow suit.  And wake up to the fact, that the Lying-corrupt Dirtbag — is just not worth it.  

Worth doing the time.   For his crimes.

Sounds like he would rather spend time in His hotels than the federal hotel. I also read that people were boycotting his hotels. He won’t be making million dollars donations in a hurry in the future. Good job Dems

Perhaps a weekend stay at the Doral resort would convince the rest of those in defiance of Congress that 3 to 5 in the Lockdown Hotel just isn’t worth it.
