Adam Schiff and the Democrats finally thought they had their made for TV moment.
One witness stepped up and offered testimony of Donald Trump engaging in a corrupt quid pro quo over military aid to Ukraine.
But then Adam Schiff put his head in his hands when one question just ended impeachment for good.
Democrats jumped for joy when European Union Ambassador Gordon Sondlan’s opening statement – which appears to have been prepared by his Democrat Party lawyers – claimed Donald Trump directed a quid pro quo over a White House meeting in exchange for Ukraine investigating the Biden’s.
Schiff stopped the proceedings and raced to the microphones to hold a press conference claiming iron-clad proof of bribery.
But Sondland’s testimony evaporated under questioning from Ohio Congressman Mike Turner.
Turner forced Sondland to admit that no one ever told him Donald Trump was linking military aid to investigations and that everything he testified to was based on a guess.
Q: No one on this planet told you that @POTUS was tying aid to investigations, yes or no?

Sondland also said his final word from Trump on the matter was that he wanted nothing from Ukraine and there was no quid pro quo.
Democrats started the day jumping for joy over the thought that Sondland would be the witness that delivered the smoking gun that would end the Trump Presidency.
But instead, Sondland provided the testimony that effectively ended the impeachment witch hunt.
