  1. Let me revise my testimony.
    Translation: I dont want to be brought up perjury.

    Clarify= I dont want to be convicted of perjury.= Deep down I dont have any integrity or spine…The word PERJURY really scares me.

    Kurt Volker was a seamstress in his previous life…he is addicted to “threading needles.” However, it should be said that he has pricked his poor fingers on numerous occasions. Finally, he has also punctured his memory which at this point in time resembles a Swiss cheese!

  4. Admitting he lied without admitting he lied lol ๐Ÿ˜‚

  5. Other Republican allies: weโ€™re going to jail now
    Volker: NVM!

  6. I’m just really surprised he didn’t fall on his sword for Trump like so many already have. Bananas. Maybe there is hope for this democracy.

  7. Attempted extortion is still a crime I believe

  8. Watching Sondlands hearing I think he might be going to jail for lying to congress

    • Almost certainly wouldn’t be jailed. Oliver North was convicted of perjury in testimony he gave to Congress surrounding the Iraq invasion. He went on to become President of the NRA, the most powerful lobbying arm of the Republican party at the time.

    • Rich white men don’t go to jail. They become television experts.

    • Learn 2 Swim … Good reminder about Oliver North.
      No justice in our justice system

  9. Stones conviction re lying to Congress has forced them ALL to revise or amend their depositions . Bad news Trump. Because soundland Mulvaney and Guiliani are all criminally exposed with doing Trumps bidding. They are all conspirators . They should be trying to make a deal like now. All of these judges observing will have to decide to make them all testify . These impeachment proceedings are devastating to trump and the republicans.

  10. Omg the Sonland guy just confessed! I can’t wait to see Lawrence face! Woooooowhoooooo democracy wins! ๐Ÿฅ‚๐Ÿป๐Ÿบ๐Ÿพ๐Ÿท๐Ÿ’–๐Ÿ’–

  11. Roger Stone’s, Michael Steele’s, and Paul Manafort’s convictions for lying looms heavily on those still on the Trump team. When will Rudy Colludie reappear to defend his reputation and honor?

  12. So far,
    Chris Matthews has given the most accurate analysis of these proceedings, though not verbally.

  13. Tl;dr: “I’m too pretty for jail!”

  14. Oh so he lied initially….

    ….but suddenly recalled everything when he realized others were actually telling the truth๐Ÿคฃ๐Ÿ˜‚.

    • And he was the star witness of Republicans, who thought he’d stick to his fake story to save their fairytale narrative…

      He did not lie, he was just wrong. The act of lying occurs when you know the truth and decide to give a false testimony. Kurt Volker gave a testimony from his perspective and did not assert that his perspective was the “end all, be all” truth. That’s why the news commentator (who is not a lawyer) was wrong in implying that Volker committed perjury.

      In perjury, criminal culpability attaches only at the instant the declarant falsely asserts the truth of statements (made or to be made) that are material to the outcome of the proceeding. For example, it is not perjury to lie about one’s age…except if age is a fact, material to influencing the legal result.

    • @3rdCoastAlliance I think you forgot that this was Sondland’s 3rd time in the seat. He saw all the others throw him under the bus so Sondland suddenly “recalls” things he claims he forgot..
      Unlike you I don’t buy his BS story.

      Lovely comment-novella BTW but I didn’t need the civics lesson.

    • @3rdCoastAlliance but it is perjury to say that your conversations didn’t include talks of a specific action, then change your statement to say that maybe you did know. I’m glad you aren’t an attorney, you couldn’t win a case in a billion years…

  15. Lies on top of lies until they are threatened with jail, scurrying rats

    • The Russ-publi-KKKants would be running around with their hair on fire! This, as opposed to a tan suit, would be the end of the world.

      ๐ŸŒŠ2๏ธโƒฃ0๏ธโƒฃ2๏ธโƒฃ0๏ธโƒฃ๐ŸŒŠ โ˜ฎโ˜ฏ๐Ÿ’–๐Ÿ˜Ž๐Ÿ™Œ

  16. The flood gates were bulging and the dam has broke! Sonland pulled his finger out! ๐ŸŒŠ ๐ŸŒŠ ๐ŸŒŠ ๐ŸŒŠ

  17. STOP letting these obstructionist LIARS “revise” their lies AFTER they are caught. If there are no consequences, they will KEEP LYING. Hold these ppl accountable ffs.

  18. Just imagine if this was a dem president.. that is all.

    • Republicans will always claim the narrative that serves their corrupt, greedy and selfish agendas. They’ll pretend, fake it, gas light the truth, blame, deflect, deny and all of this with no shame whatsoever. No apology, no accountability and no honor to the constitution. They’re memory works just fine when it serves them, other than that, their answer to questions is I do not recall. Republicans are an embarrassment and shameful to the United States. Their party should be abolished when Democrats take over in 2020.

  19. Just imagine if this was a dem president.. that is all.

    The GOP brain needs to be ‘refreshed’ over the contents of the U.S. Constitution and their oaths of office…
