re: #87 Scottish Dragon

I’m subbing in a French class right now so I can’t watch the proceedings, but I’m seeing legal folks on twitter saying this has become a disaster for Castor and the GOP….none of the GOP are prepared, lost control of questioning and Sondheim almost gleefully doing even more damage during the GOP questioning bloc

Is it actually that bad? Just saw they yielded back time to stop the bleeding even though substantial time was still on the clock.

Well, yes, for “legal folks” - and anyone else with half a brain. Jeez, I’m no lawyer in any way, and I could tell Castor’s questioning of Sondland during his timeslot was a pathetic waste of minutes: fumbling. repetitive, deer-in-the-headlights lost; especially compared to Schiff and Goldman’s on-the-mark questioning. And worse, it was an obvious case of an inept “prosecutor” letting himself be completely owned by a witness. And I would add “to the detriment of his case”, except that in this instance, the GOP’s “case” is - outside of their usual barrage of cliched talking-points - astonishingly weak.
