    If this menagerie is real, there should be an accompanying downturn in Trumps overall approval numbers, which have been and remain consistently horrible. Acknowledging the Trump cult, which exists and is garbage, the remaining "independents" and "undecideds" aren't drawn towards Trump as a result of this series of revelations. So, the numbers should change, except for the Republican Party internal approval polling numbers , which will remain high, as many GOP folks not hoodwinked by this shameless grifter in the White House changed their affiliation to independent or democrat in the last 4 years and are no longer in the GOP polling equation.

    A Dilettante Presumptuous Theorem:
    Wake up America. If an investigation into Joe Biden and his son would help Trump in the 2020 election that means Joe and his son are guilty because that’s the only way Trump would win the next election. It’s all propaganda anyway.

    Wow. These hearings are such B.S. and so is CBS. That's just the plain truth. If anyone is REALLY interested in getting to the truth, you would need to just begin with Joe Biden and the meetings he had in and around Ukraine and Barisma gas company in the Ukraine. This is where the corruption began and there is actual evidence. To deny this is to make clear your political bias and nothing of law or truth. I believe that what was clear on the transcripts was nothing more than, "look, you want aid, then clean up the filth that was in your government and lead by the example you were elected for. Okay?" This would be Trump to Ukrainian president. One needs to look no further than the actual transcript. And just because it involved Biden means nothing if there is reason able evidence that Biden broke the law of office....and there is. People, don't trust anyone else, including me. If you want answers then do some work yourself. "You want answers? I want the truth! You can't handle the truth!"

    9:39:30 Jim Himes’ is refreshingly clarifying - you can take or leave the arguments - but his explanation of the Impoundment Act & the illegality that’s harder to identify when spread out through careful witnesses who aren’t performers, he’s able to boil down, with the help of Cooper’s “unelected bureaucrat” expertise, what the actual issues are, and what’s legal and what’s not.

    So if asking for Ukraine to stop corruption which may include Biden is impeachable then shouldn't trying to impeach the president for the past 5 years with back to back to back to back to back false reasons to impeach him?

    Sooooooo... after the President's 'vehement' denial of ever having authorized the withholding of aide to Ukraine why weren't Giuliani, the 3 Amigos, and anybody else involved with 'going rogue' and 'misrepresenting' the president SUMMARILY DISMISSED?!!!! Of course they weren't. The lying and the scheming goes all the way to the top

    When people are repeating issues of technicality like: "I never heard that DIRECTLY from Trump, just his lawyer", or; "It wasn't an ORDER, it was just the POTUS telling me to do something", and; "I can't recall the Bidens being mentioned SPECIFICALLY"... If they do that, you know they're trying to cover something up, or sow doubt about accountability. - You know, like criminals do!

    How does the amount of money Hunter Biden was making have anything to do w this hearing... it is being brought up by Mr Nuns just to sway public opinion, emotional impact for some people who are watching... it is a cheep trick, irrelevant... it is not Bidens who are on trial here. If they should be on trial then there should be other means to bring it on and have another hearing. Stick to the subject here!

    Sondland has a million motives not to incriminate the president. But he did. Principled. Unlike Republican Senator Money Grubs.

    • Serene S

      Dunno about principled, but has a strong sense of self-preservation. If there’s one constant in the Trump chaos it’s that he will throw anyone and everyone under the bus, an oncoming train, Air Force One... whatever’s around. Sondland got cornered and decided to save himself. Whatever it takes, I guess.

      Sondland reversed his testimony in which he originally lied. Marie Yovanovitch and Fiona Hill as well as Bill Taylor also provided information in their testimonies that backed up the fact that there was a quid pro quo. Stop using Trump talking points. Just because he’s the president doesn’t mean you listen to what he says or protect him. In fact, NEVER LISTEN TO HIM!

    Impeachment hearing update
    and foreign aid November 21, 2019

    Seems politicians agree
    that “Quid pro quo” is a Latin expression used in a legal context. It means “this for that”, indicating the type
    of arrangement where two parties agree to make a mutual exchange.

    This is given because that is expected.

    Then by definition; the United States Foreign aid approved by Congress is also “Quid pro quo” to each country given, as it is expected that the given and accepted aid will produce a democratic republic adhering to Untied States of America values. [as stated during hearings by congress members]

    If the aid was not given for that expected reason the opposite would be “pro bono”, another Latin expression used in a legal context with contrary meaning.

    It means literally “for good”, and perhaps is akin to “for the sake of the greater good”.

    In the hearings Congressional members admit aid is given on a “Quid pro quo” basis. [As in that given to Ukraine with the expectation that Ukraine did not fall into Russian control, but become a democratic republic US ally].

    Appears used for years as a normal US Government practice the “Quid pro quo’ is not an illegal or impeachable action.
