Nunes: Did you discuss the July 25 call or July 26 call with anyone outside the White House?
Vindman: Yes. George Kent, and someone I'm not going to name who works in the intelligence community.
Schiff just told Vindman not to answer the question.
Vindman is the leaker.
JORDAN: Why didn't you go directly to your superior with your concerns?
VINDMAN: It was a really busy week. Also the lawyer told me not to talk to anyone else.
JORDAN: And yet you talked to your brother, to George Kent, and a CIA person you won't name.

George Kent *stays* hydrated
Bill Taylor/George Kent: Never met POTUS, weren't on the 7/25 call
Yovanovitch: “I cannot bring any firsthand knowledge to... the phone call or delay of aid.”
Vindman: "I've never had any contact with POTUS"
This is the testimony Democrats are relying on for impeachment.
The impeachment hearings began this week with the very first witness claiming that Ukrainian militia fighters -- whom Congress eventually barred "aid" to on the ground that they are neo-Nazis -- are "equivalent" to the Minutemen of the Revolutionary War https://www.realclearpolitics.com/articles/2019/11/16/george_kents_myth_of_ukraines_modern-day_minutemen_141750.html
Still stunned by Trump’s attack on Masha Yovanovitch. By his contempt for the Foreign Service. By Pompeo’s failure to defend his own people. The silver lining is Americans have now seen—through Masha, George Kent and Bill Taylor—the value of patriotic nonpartisan diplomats.
The transcript where Yovanovitch allies admit the “do not prosecute” list existed, despite Yovanovitch’s protestations. OOPS. https://www.washingtonpost.com/context/full-transcript-of-testimony-of-george-kent-deputy-assistant-secretary-of-state/2f33ae39-1f75-4447-a4d8-db837c42a67b/
hard for a fair-minded person watching these hearings to conclude anything other than that Marie Yovanovitch, George Kent and William Taylor are model public servants
Rep. Val Demings: Was Rudy Giuliani promoting US interests in Ukraine?
George Kent: No, he was not.
Demings: What interests was he promoting?
Kent: “I believe he was looking to dig up political dirt against a potential rival in the next election cycle.”
Bill Taylor: I agree.
George Kent is very impressive.
“[Y]ou can't promote principled anti-corruption action without pissing-off corrupt people.” George P. Kent, Deputy Assistant Secretary of State, November 14, 2019.
Trump did what any rational, even-tempered, innocent person would do in this scenario: he took notes on his own quoted statement in an a Sharpie the size of George Kent's water bottle and and then shouted a statement at reporters.

As always please play responsibly folks. I didn't make a living doing this by loading up on one game or chasing. Betting like that wipes your bankroll out fast. Remember 5% bankroll is the extreme and most professional bettors wager 1-2% per play. GL
.@Jim_Jordan asks Vindman why he didn’t go directly to his superior with his concerns about the phone call instead of George Kent and an unnamed CIA person.
“It was a really busy week...”
Notably, Trump managed to stay silent during the testimonies of George Kent and Bill Taylor.
But as soon as a powerful woman took the stand, he couldn't keep his mouth shut.
Fiona Hill, David Holmes, Masha Yovanovitch, Laura Cooper, George Kent, Bill Taylor. The public can see that we have smart, effective, honest and non-partisan people throughout the ranks of our government. Contrast them with some of the members of Congress we are watching.
In an otherwise dark moment for our country, I have been inspired by the selfless service of George Kent, Bill Taylor, Marie Yovanovitch who this week refused to be intimidated and did their duty to defend the truth and uphold the constitution. I am truly #FSProud
Testimonies of George Kent & Ambassador Taylor were devastating to @realDonaldTrump. When main response of Rep Nunes is the Steele Dossier & let's out the whistleblower, it's clear @POTUS is in big trouble.
No one is above the law, not even the President.
POTUS continues to lie and mislead about the testimonies of diplomats Bill Taylor and George Kent.
At a rally in Louisiana, he just said: “How about when they asked these two ‘Never Trumpers’ what exactly do you think you impeach him for? And they stood there like, what?” 1/
