David Holmes, a nonpartisan career foreign service officer, said in his testimony last week that it was obvious that the President was bribing Ukraine to investigate a political rival. The evidence is uncontested, and I urge my GOP colleagues to #DefendOurDemocracy .
‘It was obvious what the president was pressing for’ — Watch David Holmes push through multiple interruptions from Rep. Jim Jordan to get to the truth
I asked #ImpeachmentHearings David Holmes what this picture of Ukraine President Zelenskyy represents. It’s why we care about @realDonaldTrump ’s shakedown. Zelenskyy’s people are dying every day from Russian attacks. He was desperate for our aid. But Trump was desperate to cheat.
I obtained a copy of David Holmes' opening statement, saying that he heard Trump telling Gordon Sondland: "So, he's gonna do the investigation?" Sondland tells Trump: "He's gonna do it" and that Zelensky will do "anything you ask for."
