“there is no evidence to prove that a September 9 Trump/Sondland phone conversation ever took place”

More Trump lies and disinformation. Remember that Trump did his little recitation stunt on the South Lawn during chopper talk to draw attention away from the testimony of the July 26 French restaurant phone call in Kyiv.

Questioned by members of the House Intelligence Committee, Sondland (U.S. ambassador to the European Union) testified that he spoke to Trump on September 9, 2019. According to Sondland, “it was a very short, abrupt conversation. He was not in a good mood. And he just said, ‘I want nothing. I want nothing. I want no quid pro quo. Tell Zelensky to do the right thing.’”

Trump, on the White House lawn, quoted Sondland’s testimony — insisting that it exonerated him and telling reporters, “that means it’s all over.” But attorney Susan Simpson, analyzing impeachment testimony in Just Security, stressed that the only record of a Trump/Sondland phone conservation is for September 7, not September 9.
Simpson explained, “the ‘no quid pro quo’ call did not take place on September 9, as Sondland claimed at one point in his testimony; instead, it took place on September 7. This is shown from the testimony of Tim Morrison, senior director for European affairs for the National Security Council, and Charge D’Affaires Bill Taylor — both of whom were briefed on the call by Sondland shortly after it occurred.”
Lambe, in Law & Crime, notes that Sondland “only disclosed” the September 7 call in an amended statement after Morrison’s and Taylor’s testimonies — and that Trump “did say he wanted ‘no quid pro quo,’ but he also demanded that Ukrainian president Volodymyr Zelensky personally announce the launching of Trump’s politically advantageous investigations in a publicly televised press conference.” www.rawstory.com/…

POTUS motorcade is leaving the Trump International Golf Club almost exactly seven hours after he went in. Trump had first made a short stop at his Mar-a-Lago home on arrival from Afghanistan.
Still no answer from the White House on what the president did at his golf club or if anyone was invited to join him.
Motorcade rolling at 4:15 p.m
