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.

Gordon Sondland Stepped in ‘And Things Went Really Off the Rails'
Pablo Martinez MonsivaisUkrainian officials arrived at the White House on July 10 expecting something approaching normal. They were in Washington for a scheduled meeting with then-National Security Adviser John Bolton with a plan to propose a new path for U.S.-Ukrainian relations under the umbrella of energy and security cooperation. All seemed to go well—until U.S. Ambassador to the European Union Gordon Sondland stepped in. "That's when things really went off the rails," one person in the room said. 

It's been widely noted in testimonies by multiple House impeachment witnesses that Sondland interrupted the conversation between Bolton and the Ukrainians when he suggested that the Kyiv officials open investigations into Hunter Biden and the gas company he worked for if they wanted President Volodymyr Zelensky to land a White House meeting with Donald Trump. 

Bolton immediately cut the get-together short, witnesses said, in an attempt to save what had until then been a normal meeting. But what's been less clear—until now—is what happened moments later, when Sondland guided the Ukrainians into the White House's Ward Room. Three individuals familiar with the conversation described what happened next.
