'Trump's own guy, put knife in his back': Historic impeachment testimony ties Trump to bribery plot


The Beat breaks down a week unlike any other in the Trump era, with impeachment hearings revealing bribery evidence against President Trump. Neal Katyal, former acting solicitor general of the United States called Amb. Gordon Sondland’s testimony “devastating” and the witnesses “perfect” because “key details that launched this investigation have now been corroborated.” Ryan Goodman, former special counsel to the general counsel at the Defense Department “absolutely” sees several felonies with “clean facts” emerging. The New York Times’ Michelle Goldberg calls the case “overwhelming” but thinks the hearings were rushed, not getting the “full spectrum of corruption” in the Trump administration out.
