    On the topic of this hearing, minority counsel is doing much better than he did on day 1 with Taylor and Kent... Not great, but better...

    Vindman obviously knows who the whistleblower is.... WOW If Schiff hadn't thrown an anchor on this, Vindman would have had to have plead the 5th.

    If it's obvious, then prove it.

    It was clearly a lie. Read the transcript.
    Trump did not make any demands.

    I agree. His questions are more focused and he appears to have a greater command over the questioning.

    Vindman has strayed.

    Oh yea we have plenty of opinions but what no one can find is Trump telling anyone that funding was contingent on it a biden investigation, like you said. I nor most give a damn what somebody thought or presumed because we all know Ukraine is the most corrupt country in the world. We damn sure want our President making sure billions is going where it needs to go and not in some ones pocket. We also know that the Biden's did some shady s*** here that lined his unqualified son's pocket simply for US connections to the Whitehouse.

    Vindman caught in perjury. Lies, so far:

    Claimed not to know who the whistle-blower was
    Claimed to not have nay contact with the whistle-blower.
    Claimed he didn't know Biden was involved with Burisma

    I know I am missing a bunch in this list, please feel free to add to them.

    Williams is quiet because she already confirmed Trump's call was perfectly fine with nothing inappropriate.

    That's not what you said.... you said did ANYBODY tell the Ukrainians about aid for investigations and somebody is now on record as having done so. I 100% proved it to you, if you bothered to read my clip instead of pitiful redirection..

    Now, the next step will be do determine who authorized Sondland to tell Yermak that... I'm guessing that will come up tomorrow...

    I'm also guessing the list of people authorized to do that is pretty small....

    Well you know the old adage. "You only get one chance to make a first impression". Then have the media building him up to be the NEW silver dagger that he will certainly not live up to :)

    He knows, and WE all know he isn't gonna say anymore then what the transcript says, and now his is being billed as "THE ONE" and he is dropping mud knowing he cant live up to media hype, funny really! You would think over the last three years that people would simply know better then to let the democrats continue to lead them down the primrose path, what suckers!

    If he doesn’t know who the WB is then he can’t be sure he wasn’t about to name him

    Ok good you admit NOONE heard Trump say FUNDING WAS BASED ON AN BIDEN INVESTIGATION. From Taylor's the testimony, you know the head Ukraine guy, that Ukraine found out from Politico. Someone leaked it to Politico, hence the specific questions to today's witnesses, wonder if the whistleblower did that?

    Holy Crap! We just had Intelligence staff allowed to not answer to the Intelligence Committee. Where is the oversight?

    Also, if Schiff doesn't know the name of the fake Whistleblower as he previously stated, then how does he know to stop the line of questioning and claim it could "reveal the Whistleblower". What a damn liar.

    Now we know that Vindman was one of the fake Whistleblower's sources.

    This day has already been another big win for the Republicans and Trump. Let's keep the winning rolling... next witness please. :banana:

    Eric Ciaramella
    is the name... he's the leftist scumbag that worked with Schiff's Office to create the 2nd, 3rd, and 4th hand "complaint". For Schiff to state that "by statute his is afforded anonymity", is yet another Schiff lie. He is ONLY afforded anonymity by the IG, not by the Congress, or Press. This is Schiff lying over and over again.
