Well, old Donald sure has got himself into a mighty fine pickle.
Gordon Sondland testified under oath today that yes there absolutely was a quid pro quo in the Rudy-Giuliani-led drug deal involving Javelins and the president of Ukraine, and Burisma and young Hunter Biden -- and that whatever he did, Sondland says he did it at the direction of the President of the United States.
Here's what Trump tweeted.
Donald J. Trump @realDonaldTrump
Impeachment Witch Hunt is now OVER! Ambassador Sondland asks U.S. President (me): “What do you want from Ukraine? I keep hearing all these different ideas & theories. What do you want? It was a very abrupt conversation. He was not in a good mood. He (the President) just said,”...
Next Trump tweet:
...”I WANT NOTHING! I WANT NOTHING! I WANT NO QUID PRO QUO! TELL PRESIDENT ZELENSKY TO DO THE RIGHT THING!” Later, Ambassador Sondland said that I told him, “Good, go tell the truth!” This Witch Hunt must end NOW. So bad for our Country!
And then, the Fox News video clip with the same phrase that was on his weird notes.
It's like he knows what's coming.
Giuliani is on a tear right now, too, livetweeting against the impeachment witnesses.
During the July 24 conversation @realDonaldTrump agrees to a meeting with Pres. Zelensky without requiring an investigation, any discussion of military aid or any condition whatsoever.
This record shows definitively no quid pro quo, which is the same as no bribery. END OF CASE!

Their time in the barrel is coming.
