What Trump is tweeting this morning
President Trump is up and on Twitter, re-tweeting Republican congressmen.
In one tweet, he shared a clip of yesterday’s impeachment inquiry hearing from Rep. Jim Jordan, adding “Read the transcripts!”
Remember: President Trump has repeatedly claimed the whistleblower lied and has told the American people to “read the transcript.” The White House has not released a word-for-word readout of the July call — it has only released a rough log. Additionally, the overwhelming majority of allegations in the complaint have been corroborated by official government documents, Trump’s public statements, and news reporting.
In another tweet, Trump applauded Rep. Mike Turner for his questions at yesterday’s hearing.
Sondland will testify that Giuliani pushed for a “quid pro quo”
This morning, Sondland will confirm the quid pro quo in his opening statement.
“I know that members of this Committee have frequently framed these complicated issues in the form of a simple question: Was there a ‘quid pro quo?’ Sondland will say. “As I testified previously, with regard to the requested White House call and White House meeting, the answer is yes.”
Just last night, Trump campaign manager Brad Parscale tweeted, “NO QUID PRO QUO.”
Sondland just arrived on Capitol Hill
US Ambassador to the European Union Gordon Sondland just arrived at the US Capitol ahead of his scheduled testimony before the House Intelligence Committee.
The hearing is scheduled to begin at 9 a.m. ET.
