An analogy, from somewhere on the Internets: If your neighbor calls you and tells you it snowed overnight, that’s hearsay. If you look out the window and see the snow, that’s circumstantial. If you were up all night and watched it snow, that’s first hand.
Rep. Vicky Hartzler @RepHartzler
SONDLAND: “President Trump never told me directly that the aid was conditioned on the meeting.”
This is another day of House leadership trying to create a case around hearsay and personal perspectives on second- and third-hand information.

There was much hilarity in the responses:
Vicky, talk to Guiliani.
Can always count on Vicky to parrot her male handlers’ talking points, right on cue ..
Are you high? As a former schoolteacher, I hope you know the definition of “everyone.” If not, you should brush up because it’s gonna be on a lot of newspapers this evening.
Did you listen yesterday, when Lt. Col. Vindman offered firsthand information? Or elsewhere this morning when Sondland explained that *everyone* understood they were acting under Trump’s orders that aid would be conditional. Shame on you.
Vicky is going down with the corrupt ship.
Sondland said that he worked at the “express direction of the president of the United States.”
You clearly aren’t watching the same testimony I am…or you have your head in the sand & will go down with a sinking ship. You may be my elected Rep, but you DO NOT represent me!
“Was there a quid pro quo?”
Quit lying to the American people Vicki.
Quit misleading your constituents.
Since you don’t meet your constituents face to face, I hope you’re at least reading the responses here.
Are we watching the same hearing?
Trump admitted it in the call transcript.
You should stick to being the congresswomen representing the defense industry. You’re not a very good spin toady.
Still carrying water but it’s gotta be getting harder every day
But yet he was saying that was what he clearly wanted.
You should ask Trump, Pence, Pompeo, or Barr to testify their first hand perspectives
This is for sure, Donald Trump does not love Gordon Sondland’s ass right now.
We see what you did there.
He said trump DIRECTED him
Hanging by a thread defense, Vicky. Where there’s tons of smoke, there’s fire. Trump and Mulvaney even admitted it themselves. Get your head out of the sand
Listening the impeachment inquiry, & each Repub was like a dog with a bone, gnawing away in a frenzy. When time’s up, they sit back with a satisfied smile. It’s only when you take a closer look that you realize none had an actual bone. They were gnawing away on hot air.
LMAO!!!! It’s not enough that the @GOP wants to be as corrupt as hell, now they are determined to make everyone believe they are too dumb to understand what is going on as well!
After he got caught lol
You are really bad at this. Try sitting this out. Don’t you have govt checks to cash, or because of the large amounts, wire transfer, Hartzler? Here is the deal, testimony is straight forward, there was to be money paid for something.
Are you watching the damn hearing? Sondland followed the direct orders of TRUMP. Pompeo, VP Pense, so on and so on knew it!
“THERE WAS QUID PRO QUO” Gordon Sondland
Anyone giving you likes on these stupid, lying tweets will at some point kick their own asses for doing it.
Reaching now, aren’t you?
Your attempt to gaslight your constituents is shameful. Your decision to support trump over upholding your oath to the constitution disqualifies you to serve in Congress.
Not sure you get how this all works, maybe you’re a bit over your skis on this one?
You will be held accountable for continuing to lie to your constituents. The president committed crimes and has been trying to cover it all up and everyone knows it, including you.
Sondland specifically said there was a quid pro quo. He also specifically stated that he was under direct order from the president. Did you miss that part or are you just that stupid?
How embarrassing for you.
Your lie and you’re sticking to it?
How about you STOP being the PARTISAN HACK you are and protect the people that voted for you! #BriberyTrump #TrumpBribery #ExtortionistTrump
Then how about you corrupt sycophants pave the way for those with first hand knowledge to testify. No? Why not??????? Sit down.
HE SAID THERE WAS A QUID PRO QUO! You idiot!
We all know snow and how it got there when we see it.
