New #CrossExam:  it is simply impossible to reconcile Ken Starr’s actions in 98-99 with the positions he’ll argue now for Trump. Hypocrisy in action. Stay with @AnaCabrera⁩  & me on Sundays throughout trial for answers to your impeachment questions.

Trump has added Ken Starr to his defense team. Now House Managers can point across the well and say: “There’s the same guy who interviewed @  href='/s/MonicaLewinsky’s'>MonicaLewinsky’s ex-boyfriends, WH window washers and Kathleen Willey’s dentist. Now he doesn’t want us to hear from Bolton and Mulvaney.”

It's a close call whether Bolton will ultimately testify. But it's a 100% lock he'll tell all somehow, someday. (He's got a book, Twitter, PAC, & loves the spotlight). So, Senators: when that day comes, do you want to be known for keeping the truth hidden until it's too late?

For all the well-deserved criticisms of @MayorRGiuliani  out there, let’s not forget: his “investigation” is a hilarious and incoherent tire fire of nonsense.

Biden does not have the right to unilaterally defy a subpoena any more than Mulvaney or McGahn or others do. If he wants to legally contest a subpoena, he can and should. But - like anyone else - he must comply with the court’s ultimate order.

Sen. Susan Collins: "I am open to witnesses. I think it's premature to decide who should be called until we see the evidence..." OK, but witness testimony *IS* evidence. This formulation is a circular trap designed to lead to "I considered it, but no."

Let’s recap what William Barr has done on Ukraine: - Bogus legal opinion that whistleblower complaint should not be sent to Congress; - Refused even to open an investigation; - Argued in court that Administration can block all witnesses. So much for the search for truth.

Question for Parnas: the $500,00 that you paid @MayorR  href='/s/Giuliani'>Giuliani through your company “Fraud Guarantee” - Where did that money come from? What was that money for? And what work did Giuliani do to earn that half million?
