the folly of Amigos and Shreks: tactical failures of the fact-pattern – Will Sondland even show up

On 12 October 2019, Gordon Sondland's decision to testify was a complete turnaround. He said he'd been directed by the State Department to not speak to the committees. The difficulty of a perjury conviction might not be enough to compel him to not show up Wednesday, considering there are now two witnesses to Trump’s direct participation in a nexus for the 26 July conversation. Trump’s checking in on progress from the 25 July phone conversation sure does seem so much less than second-hand. Might Trump return Sondland’s million-dollar donation to ensure “loyalty”, since he does not have Rudy’s “insurance” with Trump. He’s not getting immunity, but he could get a pardon.
