I wish they were having open meetings. There are people (Republicans) who were in the closed door meeting that are saying on television that he didn't say that. He said that according to the rules he was not allowed to say what was said but he could say what was not said. They are also pointing out that the rules are changing constantly and that Republicans are not allowed to ask questions during the closed door sessions.
We might never know what was actually said.
The article I posted literally says they obtained his opening statement in writing, not a third-hand comment by an anonymous source.
If Republicans on Fox News are saying the Democrats are lying about Bill Taylor, why wouldn't they also lie about Sondland's testimony?
The fact that so many of you can look at everything that's happening and every credible piece of evidence (not to mention Trump's own words) over the past three years and go "well I guess we'll just never know" is really concerning and honestly blows my mind. Especially within the context of how little
evidence is required for the same people to say "Clinton is 100% guilty of [insert crime here]" or "George Soros is secretly funding groups undermining democracy for Marxism" or any other minor factual or non-factual infraction by a Democrat that's been deemed anti-American.
The cognitive dissonance is something that I will never be able to empathize with. I'll happily call out and put down Democrats who do shady shit with even half as much evidence as what has come out in regards to Trump and the people he surrounds himself with. I don't hold the Democrat party in that high of esteem. The fact that so many of you can bend into a pretzel and throw out common sense almost in its entirety to defend a politician such as Donald Trump and his administration is truly fascinating and makes me fear for what the future holds, because as I said, the next Donald Trump that y'all put up will likely not be nearly as fucking moronic as our current one.
I mean, the dude had people in his administration go to jail almost immediately
after he entered office, has a long history of shady dealings with mafia-types and other sketchy business associates, and has had a higher turnover rate than a Dairy Queen in Sabinal, Texas and y'all are like "yeah, this guy who said he was gonna drain the swamp is totally good to go". Like, fucking what
?! How do you not find that completely insane?
