Posted this elsewhere, but yeah, timelines are huge to understanding more about the actions certain people were undertaking. That Sondland GOP soundbite has no substance when put up against a timeline, or any at all if you don't but still - Dems putting up a visual timeline, animated and definitely detailed, of everything going down and where certain people were, what they were doing, and then using their spoken testimonies to get what they were thinking at that time.Fucking PHEW. Listened to this all day at work. Sondland's testimony has a lot of already-addressed take-aways, but Cooper's was a fucking dagger, imo. When you give people a way to build a solid timeline, you give them lots of ammo in regard to building a case.
Also, Schiff is that motherfucker.
A chronology of "Ukrainegate" and the Trump-Giuliani pressure on Ukraine to investigate former Vice President and 2020 presidential candidate Joe Biden.
Start with that and go from there. Got 2 more days of testimonies to add to it too.A months-long campaign by President Donald Trump and his personal lawyer Rudy Giuliani to reportedly pressure the Ukraine government to investigate former Vice President Joe Biden, Trump’s potential rival in the 2020 election, has gripped the nation’s capital. The situation escalated following the Sept. 13 revelation of an intelligence community whistleblower complaint reportedly related to a “series of events” including a phone call between President Trump and Ukraine’s President Volodymyr Zelenskyy.
As these events unfold, the aim of the chronology below is to provide a useful reference for the context and timeline on Ukraine, the roles of Joe Biden and his son Hunter there, and Trump and Giuliani’s efforts to persuade Ukraine to pursue investigations against them. We attempt to present an accurate picture of events, favorable and unfavorable to the players involved. Our assessments and views of the available public information are reflected in two pieces: Viola Gienger’s “Trump and Giuliani’s Quest for Fake Ukraine ‘Dirt’ on Biden: An Explainer” and our forthcoming, “The Swiftboating of Joe Biden.”
This chronology will be updated as new information becomes available.
And the more you can make it like Jared Harris's court testimony in Chernobyl the better it could be! Or in other words, take it home Schiff because you've basically already been doing it. Put some timelines on the screen and run down every month of the past 2 years.
