After Taylor hearing: "Sondland lied under oath to Congress," said Democratic Rep. Ruben Gallego. "He clearly lied to the committee," one anonymous Democratic representative told the Hill. "They should pursue charges against him." .... The Gambit: "Was there a quid pro quo?" he asked. "Yes." There was more. "Everyone was in the loop," Sondland said. "It was no secret." Vice President Mike Pence, Secretary of State Mike Pompeo, chief of staff Mick Mulvaney, they were all involved. It was great stuff. A bombshell! In an instant, the talk about Sondland lying to Congress vanished. Democrats were absolutely delighted that Sondland, once thought to be a witness friendly to the president, had given them so much good material. The media coverage went along. Sondland's testimony was damning, it was devastating, and, of course, it was a "turning point" in the impeachment proceedings. Except it wasn't.
Interesting ... Sondland throws out a face saving "accusation", the media and lefties run with it .... then an hour later it all come crumbling down; which of course isn't reported.
