Well, that's a wrap for us! The Democrats' snooze fest will pick back up at 7pm EST. The media has been critical of senators today who struggled to pay close attention as the impeachment managers repeated themselves endlessly. To make it interesting, Dems should reconsider calling the Bidens in as witnesses.

One person who probably isn't enjoying this presentation right now? Sen. Mike Braun. This afternoon he described the lead impeachment manager's strategy as such:

"Maybe if you want to bore somebody to death...or if you enjoyed two-hour lectures back in college, maybe that was okay."

Schiff: And why did President Trump's own officials, career public servants report this conduct in realtime? Because they knew it was wrong. Dr. Hill said it was improper and it was inappropriate and we said that in the time, in realtime. Vindman said the call was wrong and he had a duty to report it. Ambassador Taylor said, quote, holding up a security assistance for no good policy reason, no good substantiative reason, no good national security reason is wrong. Mr. Morrison admitted that he reported the call pretty much right away and recommended to them we restrict access to the package. And Ms. Williams said the call struck me as unusual and inappropriate and more political in nature. The consensus is once again clear.

Yes, Trump diverged from previous Obama administration policy, which was to arm the Ukrainians with blankets and food against the Russians. Instead , Trump sent them tank busting missiles.
