YOU Be the Judge
If you watched the hearings yesterday you saw two lifelong public servants testify as to the facts they know about the Trump/Ukraine Extortion plot. Clearly, I have a bias on this topic but I will leave it to you to be the judge.
The Republican attacks on these men (William Taylor and George Kent) by the Republican attack dogs (Devin Nunes and Jim Jordan) made for interesting television and, aside from a blockbuster revelation about a Trump phone call with Gordon Sondland that we didn’t know about, it played out the way most of us anticipated it would. The Democrats stuck to their pursuit of the facts of the case and the Republicans were intent on spinning a fantastical web about “second and third hand” sources (which could easily be remedied if the White House would allow all their people with first-hand knowledge testify!).
Whatever the case, I did a little research on Wikipedia and will simply present my cherry-picked “resumes” of yesterday’s four principal actors.
I’ll admit to being an “elitist” and believe getting an education at West Point or Harvard may indicate you have a bit more on the ball than those who go to Cal Poly and Capital University Law School but, beyond that, we have seen Nunes and Jordan in action before and we know that they will do anything to defend Trump. What stood in high relief yesterday was the unimpeachable integrity of Taylor and Kent. But that’s just my opinion --- you be the judge.
