Key depositions about Donald Trump’s effort to extort political help from Ukraine were released today by Rep. Adam Schiff.

Still more very damaging stuff. So damaging that House Republicans seem to be shifting from the “fake news” defense to making people like Sondland, Giuliani and Mulvaney fall guys.

The Trump effort to focus all attention on the whistleblower when he/she merely alerted authorities to the investigation that has produced multiple eyewitnesses is laughable. Except, I guess, to his 41 percent of deplorables.

Meanwhile, the author Anonymous says Trump is cruel, inept and a danger to the nation. But we knew that long ago. And he/she went to work for him anyway and more or less approves of some of his worst behavior.

PS: Trump told reporters this morning he barely knows this guy Sondland.
