Barr was directly implicated in the whistleblower complaint from day one of this scandal, but It is clear from today's testimony that high level admin officials were well aware of Trump's Ukraine policy. Barr's involvement must be investigated.

BREAKING: We just sued OMB, DOD, and State for failure to turn over records on the withholding of funds to Ukraine. With more high level admin officials being implicated in what looks like extortion, it is even more critical that records be released.

Reminder that this testimony is coming from a Trump appointee and million dollar Trump inauguration donor. Yet Sondland is testifying that there was a quid pro quo, that Pence and Pompeo knew about it, and it was all at Trump's "express direction."

Reminder that we’re suing the State Department over the off the record shadow diplomacy it’s conducting in Ukraine. Failing to create records, or destroying them, is against the law.

Senator Ron Johnson tried to undermine Lt. Col. Vindman's credibility before Vindman testified in the impeachment hearings. But Johnson himself has faced scrutiny because he was present for many key events in the Ukraine scandal.

Ken Buck ran for Senate. Americans for Job Security spent $2 million on ads supporting him. Hensel Phelps donated over $2 million to AJS, starting right around when pro-Buck ads began running. They’re Buck’s former employer and a federal contractor.
