    Sondland burning the house to the ground isn't really what I would call bipartisan, but I see your point. Working with the other side to get your bill passed is bipartisan. Being something when it only benefits you isn't.

    Well I Don't think it was a burning down the House situation, depending on what side you lean. I haven't read enough of your posts to determine that.
    Now Dr Hill if you walk through her testimony and understand the player's who's names she dropped, the words she used, eye contacts and facial movements. Also how she describes her importance. Not to say she's not knowledgeable, well educated, and definitely connected. Though she has no doubt in her mandate and views being paramount. So she really didn't help Schiff.

    I'm a republican, but you might be the only person I've seen who thinks Dr. Hill's testimony doesn't help Schiff.

    Well that might be because I tend to look and listen to EVERY aspect of the testamonies. I listen to All the words they chose. Also little tid bits she injected then things she said after. Such as going through and studying others testimonies and looking up things from when she was being questioned behind closed doors. Yet seemed to be ignorant to Ukraine's own investigation into their involvement in the 2016 election and their conclusion. The fact she said she had seen the Steele dossier and when and how that happened. Actually the list goes on...

    It doesn’t help if they take into account her expert opinion that the US should not give Ukraine any military aid just 4 years ago. And the fact she stated Ukraine didn’t interfere with our elections yet the Ukrainian govt has explicitly said and I believe convicted there own people of helping the Clinton campaign in 2016.

    Well she said that in an opinion piece before she worked for the Trump administration. And it wasn't aid as in money, but rather weapons that she didn't believe they should get. She said after starting work with the state department that she changed her mind though and that she now believes they should receive both weapons and monetary aid.

    She didn't say she saw when and how the dossier happened. She said she saw a copy of it when she worked at the Brooking's Institute. She also said she won't recognize the talking point that it was Ukraine and not Russia that interfered in the 2016 election. Show me where Ukraine investigated and concluded that it was their own country and not Russia that interfered in the 2016 election?

    AG Barr said he "personally reviewed security footage" and can confirm nobody entered the area where Epstein was being held the night he died. Oh well I guess that settles it then.:rolleyes:

    Seems fishy to me, I haven't spent a lot of time in a prison, but I imagine that there was at least somebody who occasionally walked by to check on them. I mean if I have a doorbell camera on my front door and somebody looked at it they could say that they reviewed the footage and saw nobody enter my home in the past week. They would be telling the truth since I always use door in the garage. In fact, the only people whoever come to my front door are the Jehovah witnesses and I don't ever let those shady guys in - I usually just hand them a brochure about islam and tell them to come talk to me if they are interested in joining the temple then send them on their way.

    What she said was she saw a copy in Jan 2017 the day before it was published in Buzz feed, shocked that Steele was the author. Also it was garbage she believed was fed to Steele by Russia. Testimony Oct hearings. So more accurate. The Ukrainian statement I believe was a Politico release and The Hill in May.

    I find it kind of reassuring that it doesn't matter if somebody is a die hard socialist leftist democrat or middle of the road independent, or a no questions asked trump republican, we can all still agree on one thing.... Epstien Didn't Kill Himself

    I really should not watch the Sunday morning political news, 8:30 in the morning and I have already thrown out a MF'er, and earned my first scolding of the day from my wife. She hates that word and it does no good when I say at least I didn't say the C word.

    I warn all my guests that if they wanna watch or talk politics they better not be a snowflake or a raging liberal - that way at least they had a warning if I have to throw that MF’er out.

    It sounds like you were fortunate that they were not running a piece on Pelosi or HRC. :biggrin:

    You might have had a string of all the "good" words come out!
