President Donald Trump sent out a tweet-storm Thursday night quoting a Ukrainian official who denied that Ambassador to the EU Gordon Sondland linked the withheld military aid to a phony investigation into the Bidens.
“THE FAKE IMPEACHMENT INQUIRY IS NOW DEAD!” Trump proclaimed.
….Ambassador Sondland did not tell us, and certainly did not tell me, about a connection between the assistance and the investigation.” THE FAKE IMPEACHMENT INQUIRY IS NOW DEAD!

All eyes will be on Sondland’s testimony Wednesday. Democrats are incensed at his post-testimony corrections and his misleading assertions during his closed-door depositions. Republicans are ready to fling him under the bus, as his testimony has become more and more damaging to Trump.
