US embassy official who overheard Trump phone call confirms that he cares more about getting dirt on Joe Biden than helping Ukraine.

Oh look, this is not second-hand information.  I guess the Republicans will have to find some other way to attack it. 

Courtesy of NYT:

An official from the United States Embassy in Kiev confirmed to House impeachment investigators on Friday that he had overheard a call between President Trump and a top American diplomat in July in which the president asked whether Ukraine was going to move forward with an investigation he wanted.

The official, David Holmes, testified privately that he was at a restaurant in Kiev, Ukraine’s capital, when he overheard Mr. Trump on a cellphone call loudly asking Gordon D. Sondland, the American ambassador to the European Union, if Ukraine’s president had agreed to conduct an investigation into one of his leading political rivals. Mr. Sondland, who had just come from a meeting with top Ukrainian officials and the country’s president, replied in the affirmative.

“So, he’s going to do the investigation?” Mr. Trump asked, according to a copy of Mr. Holmes’s opening statement posted by CNN and confirmed by The New York Times.

Mr. Sondland, a wealthy hotelier and political donor turned ambassador, told Mr. Trump that President Volodymyr Zelensky of Ukraine “loves your ass,” and would conduct the investigation and do “anything you ask him to,” according to Mr. Holmes’s statement.

“He loves your ass?” Well there is certainly a lot to love. 

That comment helps to explain President Zelensky’s mind set in dealing with Donald Trump and why he has so far not called him out for lying about their phone calls. 

Clearly Zelensky realizes that kissing up to Donald Trump and staying on his good side is the only way his country continues to benefit from its relationship with the US. 

This testimony from David Holmes also demonstrates why Zelensky agreed to help Trump dig up dirt on Hunter Biden, though so far he has not felt the need to follow through.

I think this testimony is even more damaging to Donald Trump than that provided by Marie Yovanovich’s yesterday.

    ~IT~wasn’t just a harmless holiday party. CNN reports that the three men, plus Rudy Giuliani, met privately that night. The topic of discussion? Ukraine and the Bidens.

    The Republicans are going to say that there was no extortion. That Zelensky was going to do the investigation out of his “love” for Trump.

    Why are Republicans unwilling to say anything truthful about the closed door and public hearings? They are compelled to pull the wool over peoples’s eyes who do not pay attention.

    That’s because President Trump, immediately upon Sondland being confirmed and taking over in Europe, tasked him with “developing a proposal to ‘fast track’ immigration from the E.U.,” and ordered Ambassador Sondland to consult with Trump’s top immigration adviser, Stephen Miller, and his son-in-law Jared Kushner.
