I was only slightly being tongue in cheek.

One of the many remarkable things about Sondland's testimony is that Trump wanted the Ukrainian president to announce the investigations, but didn't really care if the investigations actually commenced. The notion that Trump of all people gave a rat's ass about addressing corruption in Ukraine was always laughable, but this testimony establishes corrupt intent pretty clearly.
Yeah, I didn’t see much of today’s stuff other than Schiff and Goldman. They should have jumped on this more, as it clearly illustrates Trump’s priority, as you’ve pointed out.

Also, it has to sting the Republicans that Schiff gets to rip everyone a new one to conclude every day. Elections have consequences.

These hearings wouldn't even be happening if the Democrats didn't take the house.

They’d be investigating Hunter Biden.

Oh wait, they had control of both houses in 2016 and didn’t do jack shit about Hunter Biden, which is how you know this is a 100% smear campaign against Joe.

They were busy. You think the greatest healthcare bill in the world was going to write itself?

Courage is what it takes to stand up and speak; courage is also what it takes to sit down and listen.

Correct.  Yet, even in the current timeline, none of this would be happening unless the whistleblower had blown the whistle.  Without that, even with Dems in control of the House, Zelenskiy would've made the announcement Trump demanded which would have meant that Biden's corruption and the FACT that it was Ukraine - not Russia - who hacked the 2016 election would be screeched on an endless loop, propelling Trump to his second term. 

Also, Manafort, Stone, Cohen (maybe), Gates et al all get pardoned because it wasn't Russia so they can't be guilty.  I mean, Trump may still get re-elected and/or all those crooks may get pardoned - but now we have a chance to go the other way.  Without the whistleblower, we'd be living that Amazon Prime alternative history for the rest of our miserable, Russian-speaking lives.

How Schiff hasn't gone flying over the desk at Nunes and Jordan multiple times these last two weeks is beyond me.  I'd need a new gavel every day because a team of surgeons are trying to retrieve yesterday's.
