Last month, David Holmes, counselor for political affairs at the US Embassy in Ukraine testified in front of the Democrat Party’s Kangaroo Court, as part of their ongoing efforts to impeach Trump.
During a key portion of his testimony, Holmes explained how, during lunch in Kiev at a restaurant with U.S. Ambassador to the E.U. Gordon Sondland, which included drinking a bottle of wine, he overheard a cell phone conversation between Ambassador Sondland and President Trump.
Holmes explained how he was seated directly across from Sondland at a restaurant in Ukraine. He recalled how, during their lunch, Ambassador Sondland called President Trump, using his cell phone. Although Sondland never used the “speaker” function of his phone, Holmes claimed he could clearly hear the phone call, because, at one point, Holmes claimed Sondland held the phone away from his ear, allowing him to eavesdrop on the conversation.
Holmes told the members of the House Intelligence Committee that he did not take any notes about the call, that he clearly remembered every detail, saying that he overheard Sondland tell President Trump that “Zelensky loves your ass.” Holmes said he then heard President Trump ask, “So he’s gonna do the investigation?” According to Holmes, Sondland replied, “He’s gonna do it—adding that President Zelensky will do anything you ask him to do.”
CNN hosts, Dana Bash and Chris Cuomo were absolutely giddy, as they discussed the events unfolding at the impeachment sham hearings.
In an attempt to prove how easy it is for others to overhear a conversation on a cell phone, the CNN host asked his mom a question and asked her to reply.
“Mom, can you hear me?” Cuomo asked
“Alright, so if I’m holding the phone her with Dana Bash,” he told his mom.
“Can you just say ‘hello?’” Cuomo asked.
Not a sound could be heard from his phone.
“Mom…?,” an embarrassed Cuomo pleaded.
“She probably can’t hear me,” he told his co-hosts.
Cuomo put the phone on “speaker” and asked his mom can be heard responding loudly, “Yes, I hear you! When you talk to me, I hear you.”
Cuomo took the phone off the “speaker” function and asked again, “Say hello to Dana Bash?”
Dana Bash addressed Mrs. Cuomo and asked her how she was doing?
After a few seconds of uncomfortable silence, the CNN hosts all agreed that they couldn’t hear his mother on the phone.
Watch the awkward exchange here:
Incredible:@realDonaldTrump says people should try overhearing a phone call the way this Democrat “star witness” says he did
CNN actually falls for it
On live TV
It failed miserably
Does this count as total exoneration?

This morning, President Trump, who has been known to retweet hilarious remakes of videos, tweeted a doctored version of the video above, replacing Trump’s voice with the voice of Chris Cuomo’s mom.
Watch, as Trump refers to
