“We Followed the President’s Orders”: Gordon Sondland’s Testimony Likely Assures Trump’s Impeachment

Het kaartenhuisje begint te vallen, aldus The New Yorker:

Sondland testified under oath that the President manipulated U.S. foreign policy for his personal benefit, and that the White House is blocking the release of specific documents that corroborate Sondland’s account. For those Republican senators who have tried to maintain some distance from the President, the stakes are perilously high.

Meer bij The Atlantic:

“We did not want to work with Mr. Giuliani,” Sondland said. “Simply put, we played the hand we were dealt. We all understood that if we refused to work with Mr. Giuliani, we would lose an important opportunity to cement relations between the United States and Ukraine. So we followed the president’s orders.”

Ik heb lang gedacht dat de uiteindelijke fall guy Rudi Giuliani zou zijn, gezien hij een “externe” is in het Witte Huis en hij overal wel héél hard tussenzit. Deze getuigenis verbindt de opdrachten van de man expliciet aan de president én de vice-president, en dat maakt het des te grootser.

Wisten jullie dat, mochten de president én de de vice-president (de eerste opvolger) uit hun ambt ontheven worden, dat dan de speaker of the house de nieuwe president wordt? Dat is Nancy Pelosi. Ja, die, ja.
