How Mob Bossiness works: “Everyone was in the loop. It was no secret.” … Is Sondland no snitch

5 min read

Today’s bombshell had a considerable blast radius.  Sondland affirms, “yes” there was a “quid pro quo.” After a first deposition, a revised addendum, and today another lengthy statement, we now know there are receipts, and if Trump were not a PABOTUS*, he’d be indicted. Lacking that, the articles of impeachment get more substance.

We now see more Amigo triads: from Perry/Volker/Sondland to Bolton/Pompeo/Mulvaney, intersected by Rudy, directed by Trump, because Article III of the Nixon impeachment is about obstruction of justice.

Rudy has now deleted this

And that means Democrats are going to have to rethink what comes next.
In his bombshell testimony, Sondland, the U.S. ambassador to the European Union, implicated numerous members of Trump’s Cabinet in this unfolding story to a far greater degree than before.
In just a few hours, Sondland unleashed a fusillade of revelations that suddenly bring us face to face with much bigger questions about the roles played by acting White House chief of staff Mick Mulvaney, Secretary of State Mike Pompeo and Vice President Pence.
As a bonus, Trump’s lawyer Rudolph W. Giuliani is now far more deeply implicated as well.
