Mass Exodus Of Republican Reps During Sondland’s Testimony


Where have all the flowers gone, long time passing? Where have all the flowers gone, long time ago? Pete Seeger

Apparently GOP House reps are treating the testimony of Gordon Sondland the way you or I treat a blowout by the home team, when we just up and leave early so as to get out of the parking lot and avoid traffic. The ranks, they do appear to be thinning, and one can only assume two things: 1. The Republicans are desperately trying to figure out what the hell to do now, or 2. They want to be able to say, “I didn’t hear the testimony, I wasn’t there,” because they have no proper response to it.

Sondland’s testimony is being touted as “the John Dean moment” including by John Dean.

“His statement is not as voluminous as mine was, there’s not as much misconduct,” he continued. “It’s much more restricted.”

Dean recalled that his statement alone lasted eight hours and he testified for four days.

“But yes, I think he’s in that spirit,” he concluded. “He wanted to tell the truth. He thought that telling the truth and letting it come out was more important than any presidential relationship. It’s a big day in this presidency because the truth has come out about it.”

I’m surprised that Sondland isn’t tired and winded from all that tap dancing around most of the questions that were asked, he is leaving so many questions open ended. I think that he’s trying to remember the lies from his first deposition and the amendment to the second, yes he has provided some pretty damning stuff but time will tell

If only the repubs would break ranks and stand up for what is right, but it is not in them, they’ve sold their souls and a contract won’t be breached.
