Well, new emails from Mike Duffy to the pentagon have been released that show he notified them about the Ukrainian $391 million hold just 90 minutes after the infamous July 25th phone call between Trump and Zelensky. These emails were released as part of a FOIA request and show, at the very least, that this hold was extremely unusual and was meant to be kept secret from as many people as they possibly could under these circumstances. It shows why Michael Duffy is on the short list of witnesses Democrats would like to see in the Senate. It is strange to hear republicans argue that there is no need for witnesses in the Senate saying they aren't going to make the House's case for them while, at the same time, these witnesses have been held up by the administration all along. The DOJ entered the mix also asking the courts to not rule on any of the administration's privilege arguments, the same ones they have been losing in every curt case so far. I guess Trump IS right. There's nothing to see here.
