Or Bill Taylor told the truth and Sondland Conveniently left out some critical parts of his testimony?

I am going with Taylor over Sondland on any disagreement on testimony

Sondland


Sondland’s company, Provenance Hotels, owns and manages hotels throughout the United States, including the Hotel Max and Hotel Theodore in Seattle, Washington

Sondland donated $1 million to the inaugural committee of Donald Trump.[11] On March 12, 2018, the Wall Street Journal reported that President Trump selected Sondland to be the next United States ambassador to the European Union.

I was responding to a poster that claimed Taylor lied. You obviously have issue with Carewemust.

I didn't accuse anyone of lying, only said in a He-said He-said scenario I find Taylor much more reliable.

It is certainly possible that no one is lying and there are just different recollections or perspectives of the same set of facts.

That is what investigations are for.

Sondland should clear up anything that differs in his testimony from Taylors and vice-versa.

And other people were present who can shed further light.

You need to examine evidence from multiple perspectives to get to the facts.

There were other participants in the conversations Taylor testified to.

The WH should let them testify and clear things up.

You still seem very confused about impeachment proceedings vs. trial.

Oh, I understand it fully.

There is no formal impeachment proceeding currently underway though, that would require a vote of approval by the HoR. There have been 3 votes so far, and none of them have passed, so what is going on now is a sham proceeding masquerading as a formal impeachment process.

So, meybe you are the one confused?

Until these hearings are open and there is full transparency, we, the people, will never see the truth.

Sondland -snip- interesting factoids on his history, but nothing criminal, and shows he is not a career politician

vs.

Bill Taylor -snip- admittedly impressive resume, but also obviously a deep state career government employee.

The main problem, is we don't have Taylors full testimony, we only have a carefully crafted opening statement.

That said, we do also have direct testimony from people in the hearing that heard his testimony, saying that he crumbled under cross-examination, and admitted that he had ZERO knowledge of any quid-pro-quo or wrongdoing.

So, I'll take this testimony from reliable first hand witnesses over the well known lying Shifty any day of the week.

And if/when they're opened and transcripts made available to the public with damning evidence against Trump, what will be the excuse then?

Even the most ardent mouthpieces tasked with attacking the process to defelect from the evidence admit it is "Precedent" but not required.

You seem to be going for extra-bs-bonus points.

Open hearings follow investigations.

You seem to be cheering the obstruction of investigations in order to avoid open hearings.

Depends on what the 'damning evidence; actually is. The dems tend to call a lot of things 'damning' that turn out to be false, or not damning in any way.

But if it is truly damning? Then pursue it and let the chips fall where they may.

Not in the only other three times in our history this has happened. In all 3 cases, all of the hearings of the investigation were open - at least to all Members of the HoR (I'd have to research to see if they were all open to the public or not).

No, you are the one cheering... secret, closed door one-party-sided 'hearings'.

I am not cheering, I'm crying foul.

Thats the rub though isn't it.

I think using national funds/power to hurt political rivals is beyond blatantly damning.


I'm certain if a Democrat was doing it there would unanimous agreement from Trump supporters that they should be impeached/removed from office/disgraced.

However, because its Trump and folks are on his 'team', he wasn't really hurting political rivals, he was just going after crime, and it was a SUPER double-plus good-good coincidence that it just so happen to be his political rivals and not anybody else...........

That is funny, I was just attacked for speaking for 'everyone'... I now see what they mean, and will attempt to be more precise in the future.

The fact is, a plain and simple reading of the relevant clause in the Constitution makes it clear as day - but you have to be capable of reading with comprehension, and logical thought.

I'll try again...

First, no one can dispute the initial premise: The HofR has the sole Power of Impeachment.

Now, understanding the following requires the engagement of rational, logical thought:

1. HoR means the whole House, not the Speaker, or some Committee chair,

2. Initiation of an Impeachment Inquiry/Investigation falls under the purview of the 'Power of Impeachment', and so requires participation of the whole HofR, and

3. The whole HofR makes its will known by the act of voting on submitted Resolutions/Bills that are sent to the floor of the HofR for a vote - by the whole HofR.

That is it. PERIOD.

I agree. Good thing that isn't what happened/is happening.

You have to be able/willing to admit that, if, in the investigation of corruption, a political rival gets hurt, that isn't 'using national funds/power to hurt a political rival.

What t he DNC/Hillary did (the Steele Dossier and fake Russia Hoax investigation), however, most certainly is.


I'm certain if a Democrat was doing it there would unanimous agreement from Trump supporters that they should be impeached/removed from office/disgraced.

Yes, and I firmly believe that Schiff, Pelosi, and all of the others pushing this fake crap all deserve to be impeached.


However, because its Trump and folks are on his 'team', he wasn't really hurting political rivals, he was just going after crime, and it was a SUPER double-plus good-good coincidence that it just so happen to be his political rivals and not anybody else...........

Exactly. Now you are getting it.

Yes, and they are also forbidden from discussing it even within fellow R members (much less the press/people), and are forbidden transcripts, and are forbidden to call their own witnesses. I wouldn't be surprised if they are given extremely limited time to cross-examine, and/or limited by what they can ask.

But we don't know, do we?

Because it is all being done in secret, isn't it?

Yep... pretty one-sided, all right.
