via @mkraju, testimony of David Holmes, who heard Trump's voice on Sondland's Jul 26 cellphone call.

Sondland: "Zelensky loves your ass."

Trump: "So, he's going to do the investigations?"

Sondland: "Zelensky's going to do anything you ask him."

Holy hell.
@mkraju David Holmes, the State Dept aide who heard Trump's Jul 26 call with Sondland, said Sondland told Trump that President Zelensky would do "anything you ask him to," and that the Ukrainians were going to "do the investigation."

@mkraju @jeremyherb David Holmes asked Sondland "if it was true that [Trump] did not 'give a s—t about Ukraine."

Sondland responded that Trump only cares about "'big stuff' that benefits the President, like the Biden investigation that Mr. Giuliani was pushing."
@mkraju @jeremyherb David Holmes opening statement:

"I heard Ambassador Sondland greet the President and explain he was calling from Kyiv. I heard President Trump then clarify that Ambassador Sondland was in Ukraine..."

OMG. Trump is so dumb.

@mkraju @jeremyherb Holmes testimony: "0n Apr 25, Ivan Bakanov, Zelensky's childhood friend, campaign chair, and ultimately head of Ukraine's Security Services, indicated to me privately that he'd been contacted by, 'someone named Giuliani, who said he was an advisor to the Vice President'"
@mkraju @jeremyherb David Holmes: On a Jun 28 call with Zelensky, Taylor, and the Three Amigos, it was made clear that some action on a Burisma-Biden investigation [that Giuliani and his associates had been speaking about in the media since Mar] was a precondition for an Oval Office meeting.
@mkraju @jeremyherb Schiff: And [Sondland] making a cellphone call from Ukraine, is there a risk of Russians listening in?

Holmes: At least 2 of the 3, if not all 3, mobile networks are owned by Russian companies. We genenally assume mobile communications in Ukraine are being monitored.
