Transcript
As i've already testified, i read the witness's transcripts of all of the witnesses and, like i relied on testimony from ambassador sandlin and testimony from mr. morrison testimony from lieutenant-colonel vin minh testimony for ambassador taylor, i relied on the fact that when i think it was ambassador Taylor, but i may be getting which one of these people wrong sent the sent the cable. That said ...
you know it's crazy to hold this up based on domestic political concern. No one wrote back and said: that's not why we're doing it. I relied on what mr. mulvaney said in his in his press conference. So there were, you know, there's a lot to suggest here that this isabout political benefit and if i don't know if i can talk about another piece of ambassador sunland's testimony now or i should wait, tell me please talk about it, so i want to just point To what i consider to be the most striking example of this and the most you know, i spent all of thanksgiving vacation sitting there reading these transcripts. I didn't you know i i ate like a turkey that came to us in the mail that was already cooked, because i was spending my time doing this, and the most chilling line for me of the entire process was the following. Ambassador silence said he had to announce the investigations he's talking about presidentsolinsky had to announce the investigations he didn't actually have to do them, as i understood it, and then he said i never heard mr. goldman. Anyone say that the investigations had to start or had to be completed. The only thing i heard from mr.

giuliani or otherwise was they had to be announced in some form and what i took that to mean was. This was not about whether vice president biden actually committed corruption or not. This was about injuring somebody who the president thinks of as a particularly a particularly hard opponent.
