His testimony today has a lot of stuff, including a lot of obfuscation because he doesn’t take notes.
But the essence seems to be that of course there was a quid pro quo and an oval office meeting was the quo.
He also has said that he now sees clearly that there were two quos, the other being $400,000,000 in aid.
But that clarity he says is only now obvious to him.
In the thick of things he had no idea that the aid was contingent upon Zelensky doing what donnie wanted.
Now, with various revelations from the hearings, he can clearly seeing the duality of the quo.
I guess there must be some reason for that construct of facts and events.
I guess he is desperately trying to be an outsider dupe, not an inner circle conspirator.
The gambit will probably work.
I’m not sure I care.
Except that Rudy needs to keep his eyes open.
There is a bus hurtling his way.
