Only One Hearing Today, Thank You Baby Jeebus! Here's What To Expect

Fiona Hill, a former Europe and Russia expert at the White House, and David Holmes, an embassy official in Kyiv, will testify.

Via the New York Times, here's what to expect this morning. Maybe it'll be a nice calm hearing that won't be like a tornado slowing through the Beltway?

Ms. Hill is expected to testify that Mr. Bolton expressed serious concerns about the pressure campaign on Ukraine led by Rudolph W. Giuliani, the president’s personal lawyer, who was pushing Ukraine to investigate Democrats. In previous, closed-door testimony, she described a July 10 White House meeting during which Gordon D. Sondland, the ambassador to the European Union, raised the investigations in front of Ukrainian officials and said there was a deal to grant their new president a White House meeting with Mr. Trump if he agreed to announce them.

[...] Mr. Holmes will testify that he overheard a phone call between Mr. Trump and Mr. Sondland during a lunch in Kyiv. In closed-door testimony, Mr. Holmes told lawmakers last week that he overheard Mr. Trump, who was speaking loudly, asking Mr. Sondland whether Mr. Zelensky was “going to do the investigation.” Mr. Sondland, a wealthy hotelier and political donor turned ambassador, told Mr. Trump that Mr. Zelensky “loves your ass” and would conduct the investigation and do “anything you ask him to,” according to Mr. Holmes’s statement.

We pretty much know what they're going to say -- OR DO WE???? lol

We could all use a nice, dull, serious hearing today. Here's hoping we get one!
