I’m once again really confused here. FR is becoming one of the worst places to get an accurate idea of what’s going on.
I’m listening to this gal on the radio.
You get the impression she’s super anal, and I’d guess a liberal left Obamaite, but don’t know, but
THE ATTORNEY SAYS YOU LEFT THE SERVICE JULY 18TH? OK THE CALL WAS JULY 25TH?
She’s no longer there. What the hell is she doing be deposed? She had left.
It only matters how she FEELS about it.
The OP says " Hill told lawmakers in closed-door testimony last month that then-national security adviser John Bolton expressed concerns that the Trump administration was trying to pressure Ukrainian officials."
I think she's there to speak about the tone of the relations with Ukraine, and whether there was any general pressure being applied, not necessarily specific to the phone call.
I think this means that Schiff is moving the goalposts away from the quid pro quo of the specific call, and is now trying to establish a general policy of pressure towards Ukraine as background context for the telephone call. Schiff is trying to set the narrative that Ukrainians felt the pressure anyway and didn't need the specific quid pro quo in the specific phone call to feel pressured by President Trump to comply with his "favors."
She is liberal left or she wouldn’t have spent time at CFR.
She is playing a roll like schiff....uses a lot of language to express her answers with personal comment mingled in which is a tactic to lead the hearer.
