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.

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.
