Sondland Testimony Again Under Scrutiny Over Newly-Revealed Call With Trump | The Last Word | MSNBC

  1. “Fake attorney general” DANG! Shots fired!

  2. Gym Jordan was performing at his despicable worst again – he not only has no business being in congress, he is consuming precious oxygen without contributing to anything ever in his miserable life!

    • @JoeyFiveandDimes Is this the same committee that Greg Pence is on in the House? Saint Michael Pencealot’s brother sure is kept off the cameras, out of news coverage and in the shadows through all of this! *VP’s Brother on Impeachment Committee*
      *VPOTUS Saint Michael Pencealot’s Big Brother Is Sitting In On Congress’s Closed-Door Impeachment Depositions* Republican Rep. Greg Pence, .. was elected to Congress last year and serves on one of the committees in charge of the impeachment inquiry…. Pence has flown under the radar on the impeachment front. The first-term Republican hasn’t said much publicly about the topic; he spoke out when Speaker Nancy Pelosi announced the House would move forward with the impeachment investigation, condemning Democrats by calling the process a “partisan power grab” in a tweet. “It seems their #ImpeachmentAgenda is more important than the American people,” he wrote. On Tuesday, Pence and the 20 other Republicans on the Foreign Affairs Committee signed a letter demanding all members sitting in on impeachment depositions receive copies of transcripts of the closed-door interviews. (Currently, members can only access the transcripts in the Intelligence Committee offices.) “It is outrageous and unjustifiable to deny us those basic documents, which are critical to our ability to meaningfully prepare for and participate in this investigation,” the letter read. “We require the same access to the same documents in the same format, as is enjoyed by you and your staff.”

      Aside from Schiff, who chairs the Intelligence Committee, no other committee members have unsupervised access to transcripts, according to the letter. Members of Intelligence, Foreign Affairs, and Oversight committees can view documents at the Intelligence Committee’s office during designated times.

    • What in the world is that Jordan doing in Congress?? I’m serious.

    • @Karen Hyland
      And a breath mint. Ugh.

    • @PandoraBVV
      He’s gone now, but he looked like a pasty spectre with skin stretched across his bones. And found nothing on HRC.

    • @Evelyn Brown That sounds like a description of 3-Gowdy. Trey has joined Trump’s legal team. I read about it just this past week.

    Selling any government job, including that of “Ambassador to the EU”, should put politicians in prison.

    • surely you joke, mein failüre | November 14, 2019 at 4:20 PM | Reply

      @Source Fractal OOTB There’s a joke in here somewhere .. apparently Sondland’s parents fled the holocaust only so that their son could later work for a guy who surrounds himself with holocaust deniers.

    • It really should be given on merit, I can believe it is any way else!

    • Purple Flame Tarot | November 15, 2019 at 4:59 AM | Reply

      There is an ex-governor (I think, maybe senator) sitting in prison for trying to sell President Obama’s Illinois Senate seat after he became president.

    • Purple Flame Tarot | November 15, 2019 at 5:02 AM | Reply

      Look at any of IQ45’s cabinet. Especially Betsy DeVos. That seat was bought and paid for. She’s not as smart as any of the teachers in the public school system, which she despises because you can’t make money off of them or brainwash the students!

    • carmen patricia conde fierro | November 15, 2019 at 5:18 PM | Reply

      yeah………..any of those seeking a job this important should “earn”  it !!   with their previous experience, etc.,

  5. When Gordon gave Don a million dollars he thought he was buying an ambassadorship but he is also going to get several years free food and accommodation! What a great deal!

  6. The Democrat counsel is going to take Sondland apart under questioning, and Sondland will fold like a cheap suit. He’s already proved he’s not willing to go to jail for Trump.

    • Sondland is hoping for home detention in the Presidential suite in one of his hotels.

    • If I’m Sondland I spill the beans and give up the president on a silver platter.Trump already publically stated he doesn’t remember Sondland.

    • @cherrish roseberry-cornell I wonder if it’s the idea that they are dealing with the “President” that blinds them.

    • cherrish roseberry-cornell | November 17, 2019 at 8:40 PM | Reply

      @Rhaspun it’s possible I guess, but I think that this is someone’s fault for not vetting Trump properly. I think most people probably think if he was that bad, they wouldn’t have allowed him to run for office. Truth be told he probably should have been to prison several times over, but when people like him get away with everything, they become monsters, and feel untouchable. The breakdown in that system created him, and now we are all going to pay for it. Now we have a portion people, indoctrinated by people at places also not held accountable, like fox news, that won’t easily believe that he is not just being victimized. I’ve never seen someone who has gotten away with so much wrongdoing, but still claims to be such a victim.

    • @Antony Stringfellow read the declaration of independence for the founding fathers views on this,

  7. Fact: Congress approved & appropriated military aid

    Fact: Trump illegally withheld it for _personal political gain._

    Fact: evidence for personal political gain — he required the Ukrainians to _make a public statement that they were investigating Hunter Biden_

    Fact: this is an abuse of power — an impeachable offense

    *The End*

    Gordon Sondland’s reasion for changing his testimony is trump told me to lie .

    • I have a degree of sympathy for the president’s son Baron. What a terrible life the poor kid is gonna have to suffer – that his dad was the most corrupt and dishonest; most reviled president the US ever had!

    • unknown President | November 15, 2019 at 3:54 PM | Reply

      If I was baron I would become a democrat and become president , and change everything trump has done ✅

  9. The sooner Trump leaves office, the sooner he goes to prison.


  10. *Abuse of Power: using the office of the presidency to gain advantage over a political rival for your own personal political gain*

    • It’s as clear as day this was abuse of power, obstruction of justice, bribery, having all his cronies lying under oath or encouraging them not to show up to testify when ordered by the judicial committee to do so. So many infractions against this mad man president. And one other thing. These season politicians who have been there years before Trump, who knows nothing about foreign affairs and even local, they risk the chance of going to prison and they have families, yet they still continue to turn deaf ear and blind eyes to the truth about Donald duck Trump.

    • I think republicans musten no about that

    • The scary part is how many government secrets and people he has put in danger for his own personal benefit.

    • Robert W. Mahon | November 14, 2019 at 8:28 PM | Reply

      yep you got it

    • Regina Fetty

      And how many Ukrainian lives have been lost because Trump withheld crucial defensive weapons for the Ukraine.

      Trump has blood on his hands from the Kurds and the Ukrainians.

      Funny how Russia is party to both conflicts.

      All Trump roads lead to Russia.

    Congressman Welch definitely gets the Comment of the Year Award…definitely!

  12. If Sondland is proven to have lied again then he should be prosecuted to the full extent of the law and be made an example of.

  13. Welch had a mic drop moment and the folks had to laugh with that one and Jordan had no come back. 😂😂

  14. Estelle Harrington | November 14, 2019 at 8:35 AM | Reply

    Blessings to the man who said Trump was welcome to come in and take a seat. 👼⚘☺😲🤗

  15. I like Peter Welsh… He put Jordan in his place… Show him up as an empty vessel with no brain!!!
    He is definitely my hero today too

  16. I never tire of seeing Welch shut down Jordan. That was a 3rd-degree burn on a deflector and liar who will be under the bus by spring.

  17. The guy who started it all, “The President’. All of us need to take that in.

  18. Gym Jordan and Devin Nunes were absolutely pathetic and show that they are unqualified.

  19. Jim Jordan is a flameout. He has absolutely nothing to add to anything

  20. It’s going to take so many years to repair this country after this crook leaves office!!

    • Hillary? She’s been gone a while but you’re right it’ll take years to undo all she’s done……..and that’s not even considering the crimes were not yet aware of. Great point.
