It’s over. Sondland has destroyed every Republican line of defense and confirmed that Trump conditioned official acts on Ukraine announcing that they would perform “investigations” that would benefit Trump personally. This is bribery, and clearly impeachable.
Now Republicans in and out of office must choose: loyalty to the rule of law, or loyalty to Donald Trump. Country or Party. It’s that simple.
Paul Krugman, today in the New York Times, suggests the G.O.P. is now the C.O.P., or the Corrupt Old Party. I suggest it has become the PoT: the Party of Trump.
