Have to disagree with the general tone of this thread. Career civil servants who serve through both Republican and Democrat administrations with distinction do so because they are expert, non-partisan professionals. I trust their testimony.
I don't ! Some are OK, but some are arrogant rascals, who think they should be bossing the president.
Sondlund does not fit that description, but seems to have come to the realization that if he lies, he might end up in the pokey like Roger Stone..
IMO..Sondlund sounds more the professional than mst of the others
Trump and House Committee Republicans seem to have consumed a great deal of Russian disinformation Kool Aid. I am very disappointed that the Crowdstrike/DNC server/Ukranians meddled conspiracy theories debunked by US intelligence agencies seem to be stuck in the minds of those who should know better.
The house Republicans said yesterday, that they are well aware of the Russian meddling, much to the dismay of Dr Fiona Hill.
One wonders just what Putin has on Trump. I'll bet Putin put a bug in Trumps ear about Ukraine, perhaps via corrupt Ukrainians from their prior administration.
Putin almost certainly has nothing on the president..nothing more than the Dems tried to foist upon the American voters.
As a middle of the road guy (?)
who votes issues rather than party lines , I don't have any political fish to fry.
Critical objective evaluation of the facts that are publicly about this Ukrainian business do not throw good light on Trumps. (unbiased of course)
One thing for sure, unless you want the Russians to gobble up Ukraine, it was BAD policy to withhold military aid from Ukraine
