Gordon Sondland testified in the official impeachment probe and boy did he bring receipts.
On Wednesday, the U.S. Ambassador to the European Union testified in a public hearing on Capitol Hill. He brought a bunch of emails and WhatsApp screenshots laid everything out in plain, and very damning, language.
In his opening statement, Sondland said that essentially everyone from Trump on down was aware of quid pro quo in Ukraine. He even specifically admitted it in the iconic line, “Everyone was in the loop. It was no secret.”
As you can imagine, Twitter users quickly fell into hysterics over his blunt and explosive revelations.
Sondland’s comment is even more resonant for people who are familiar with the 2009 movie In the Loop, which followed a whole lot of incompetent government people. What a fun connection, right?
A very legal and very cool time to be alive in America.
