Ron Johnson, the Senator With an Outsized Role in the Ukraine Saga
STR/NurPhoto/GettyAmong the 100 U.S. senators who could decide President Trump's fate in an impeachment trial, only one of them can claim to be a fact witness to the allegations at hand as much as they can claim to be a juror: Sen. Ron Johnson.

The two-term Wisconsin Republican chairs the Senate Foreign Relations Committee's panel on Europe, and as part of that role, he has been as engaged as anyone in Congress on matters involving Ukraine. As a result, he has become a go-to lawmaker for the White House for the region.

But in the issues at the heart of the House of Representatives' impeachment inquiry, Johnson has played an even more outsized role than his jurisdiction entails. The senator has been an inescapable presence in the Ukraine saga: Not only has he been present for several key events in the timeline of Trumpworld's apparent push to get Ukraine to investigate the Bidens, Johnson has also had personal conversations with many of the major figures involved, from Trump to Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky to U.S. Ambassador to the E.U. Gordon Sondland.

Top Diplomat Testified Pompeo Called Hannity About Yovanovitch Smears
David Hale, the Under Secretary of State for Political Affairs, said in his closed-door impeachment testimony that Secretary of State Mike Pompeo called Fox News host Sean Hannity last spring to ask about the smear campaign launched against former U.S. Ambassador to Ukraine Marie Yovanovitch, according to a transcript that was made public Monday night.

Discussing efforts by Trump attorney Rudy Giuliani and pro-Trump media to besmirch the reputation of Yovanovitch ahead of her ouster as ambassador, Hale noted that Pompeo spoke to Giuliani twice in late March regarding the allegations.

At the time, conservative columnist John Solomon had reported that former Ukrainian Prosecutor General Yuriy Lutsenko said Yovanovitch had given him a "do not prosecute list." (Lutsenko would later walk back that claim.)

Sondland to U.S. Diplomat, Trump Only Only Cares About ‘Big Stuff' Like the Biden Investigation
Chip SomodevillaThe U.S. Ambassador to the European Union Gordon Sondland told State Department officials and staffers in Kiev that Donald Trump didn't "give a shit about Ukraine" and only cared about the country launching an investigation into 2020 presidential candidate Joe Biden and his son Hunter. 

That's according to a newly released transcript from the deposition of David Holmes, a U.S. diplomat based in Kiev who testified before House impeachment investigators last week. 

During the Nov. 15, closed-door hearing, Holmes told investigators that he accompanied Sondland and two other department staffers to a restaurant in Kiev where he asked the EU ambassador about President Trump's thoughts on Ukraine.

Dear Debate Moderators, Medicare for All Is DOA in Congress. Ask Candidates About Wages and Climate Change.
Photo Illustration by Lyne Lucien/The Daily Beast/Getty/Mike AglioloOh, just another week, really. The president intimidates one witness, another witness has Donald Trump dead to rights on not caring about anything Ukraine except how it could help him beat Joe Biden, and the attorney general gives a fascist speech making it clearer than ever that he's going to spend the next year doing everything he can to turn the Justice Department into the committee to re-elect the president. 

That's a lot of fodder. In Democrat-land, though, it looks like it's going to another week of repeating the same old arguments about Medicare for All.  

Yes, there's another debate Wednesday. I really have come to loathe them. They show all of them at their worst. The culprit of course is television: the need for conflict, and the desire of moderators to press the candidates to lock into commitments that everybody knows are irresponsible and ridiculous. And Medicare for All is Exhibit A here. Why? Because nobody's passing a Medicare for All bill. The elevation of that issue to its current level of prominence is the biggest con job in contemporary politics. Yes, it has changed the conversation in good ways and moved the center of gravity leftward. But as for the bill itself, there aren't 20 votes in the Senate for what Bernie Sanders and Elizabeth Warren are proposing.
