The cracks are growing within the Republican Party on impeachment as Rep. Mike Turner called details in the latest testimony alarming.
Transcript via CNN’s State Of The Union:
TAPPER: Well, I mean, Gordon Sondland, according to Tim Morrison, who testified, whose transcript was released on Saturday, so you can talk about it — there’s no gag order. It’s been released.
Tim Morrison said that Sondland went over to Yermak, one of the top aides to President Zelensky, came back and said — quote — and this is Tim Morrison saying — Sondland — quote — “related to me that the president was giving him instruction,” Sondland and Mick Mulvaney. They both report to the president.
And according to Sondland, Sondland told Yermak, if you want this money released, publicly announce these investigations.
So does that not alarm you?
TURNER: Well, of course, all of that is alarming.
And as I have said from the beginning, I think this is — this is not OK. The president United States shouldn’t even, in the original phone call, be on the phone with the president of another country and raise his political opponent.
