Gordon Sondland says he does not dispute the testimony of Bill Taylor and Tim Morrison that Trump told him in September that Zelensky needed to publicly announce investigations before aid would be released.
In contrast to Volker and Morrison, who looked deeply uncomfortable through much of yesterday's testimony, Sondland has appeared jolly and at ease much of the time today. He seems to be having the time of his life.
Sondland: don’t recall Biden coming up... everyone thought it was a good call (not vindman and morrison)
We will now hear from Kurt Volker and Tim Morrison. Volker has testified no president should ever ask a foreign leader to interfere in a US election. Morrison will confirm Sondland told the Ukrainians they needed to do so to get vital aid. These are GOP-requested witnesses.
Volker / Morrison seem like they’re playing babe in the woods. That they didn’t know what was going on. That it was all rudy and sondland. That they didnt understand the interest in biden/ burisma. Ukraine experts? Seems questionable.
