President @realDonaldTrump  responds to Sondland's testimony: “I want nothing. That’s what I want from Ukraine.” “I want no Quid Pro Quo, tell Zelensky to do the right thing.”

Congresswoman Jackie Speier: "The president of the United States has 5 pinocchios everyday so let's not go there." (Audible applause in the room.)

Probably worth pointing out that that no quid pro quo call was the day after Trump found out the whistleblower report was going public.

Many Republicans have left the impeachment hearing room as testimony with Amb. Sondland continues.

"Why are the government withholding the dossier on Russian interference into UK elections and referendums when it’s already been given the green light by secret services?" Boris Johnson is challenged by a worker in Teesside while on a campaign stop.

Me: I wonder if Sondland is gonna name names? Sondland:

All I can think of when I see Nunes now is that he's suing a cow on Twitter.

Scoops of the Week

Driven by anger at the authorities' response to massive protests - and guilt that the burden of defending democracy has fallen on the city's youth - a white collar rebellion is rippling out across Hong Kong

AG Bill Barr: "Immediately after President Trump won election, opponents inaugurated what they call 'The Resistance' and they rallied around an explicit strategy of using every tool and maneuver to sabotage the functioning of the executive branch."

Publicly, Chinese officials say the Xinjiang camps provide job training. But privately, the documents show, they used words like "virus," "infected" and "eradicate" to justify mass detentions and plotted how they would manage and intimidate families that were torn apart.

@Jim_Jordan  asks Vindman why he didn’t go directly to his superior with his concerns about the phone call instead of George Kent and an unnamed CIA person. “It was a really busy week...”

If you were as moved as I was by Ambassador Yovanovitch‘ s testimony today , retweet #BravoMasha  !

China has detained up to a million Muslims, a campaign it calls a benevolent and routine effort against the pull of extremism. But 403 pages of Communist Party documents we obtained reveal how officials plotted to carry out a ruthless, coercive clampdown.

Massive attacks underway against the kurds in northern syria. No ceasefire. Total nonsenses there is. US military officials tell me they are ashamed, “sickened.” It’s cold now outside. What about the families, and kids, out of their homes? @OARichardEngel  #AmericanBetrayal
