What's that phrase? Save the best for last? Whether or not it was deliberate, today's witnesses left no room for questions...literally...Republicans actually stopped asking questions. From the calm lucidity of Holmes, to the assured hyper-competence of the instantly iconic Hill, get the full picture of the House's final public hearing. Oh! We almost forgot, there was a debate last night to catch up on too.

Doesn't get much clearer than the "answer is yes." Sondland veered onto an alternate course today as he confirms a quid pro quo. Plus, that $1 million donation to Trump's inaugural committee didn't stop Sondland from throwing the president under the bus, along with Pompeo… and Bolton… and Mulvaney… and Pence… and Giuliani. Holy shit. Oh, and if that weren't enough, there's a Dem debate tonight at 9 p.m. ET.
Vindman. Williams. Volker. Morrison. Four witnesses. Two hearings. One loooong day. It was a day of firsts: This morning, we heard from the first witnesses on that July 25th phone call with Ukraine. This afternoon, we heard from the first witnesses summoned by the GOP. And most importantly, we heard from our first witness over 7 feet tall! The stakes have never been higher for the impeachment investigation. So if there's a day to watch the Daily Recount, it's this one.
NINE witnesses are testifying publicly this week. Yes, you read that right: N-I-N-E, including three White House staffers who were on that July 25th call with Ukraine. It might be time for Trump to cut back on his McDonald's visits after a last-minute, non-routine doctor's visit this weekend. Plus, Obama sends a pointed warning to 2020 Dems about being #TooFarLeft.
