Fiona Hill is testifying before the House Intelligence committees Thursday morning, and what she is saying has the president in full distraction mode on Twitter. Hill has testified that it was the president’s ego, not the nation’s best interest, behind the Ukraine investigation request, also known as extortion.

Another hard-hitter in this morning’s depositions is David Holmes, a State Department official who is not afraid to tell is exactly like it is, also testified, and one person who is wishing he’d called in sick thanks for Holmes is Devin Nunes.

Nunes, who was questioning Holmes, asked his if he’d “ever heard of the black ledger.”

Holmes responded that he had heard of it, to which Nunes inquired:

“The black ledger – is that seen as ‘credible’ information?”

Holmes immediately replied “yes.”

Nunes looked flabbergasted at Holmes’ response, and asked again:

“The black ledger is credible?”

Holmes said again, “yes.”

Nunes, looking like his head was going to explode, said:

“Bob Mueller did not find it credible. Do you dispute what Bob Mueller’s findings were? – They didn’t use it in the prosecution or in the report.”

Holmes shot back:

“I’m not aware that Bob Mueller did not find it credible. I think it was evidence in other criminal proceedings. Its credibility was not questioned in those proceedings, but I’m not an expert on that.”

Check out the video of the awkward encounter below:

Holmes testified that:

“I’ve never seen anything like this. someone calling the President from a mobile phone at a restaurant, and then having a conversation of this level of candor, colorful language. There’s just so much about the call that was so remarkable that I remember it vividly.”

“I then heard President Trump ask, quote, ‘So he’s going to do the investigation?’ Ambassador Sondland replied that ‘He’s going to do it,’ adding that President Zelensky will, quote, ‘do anything you ask him to.’”

People on Twitter responded in kind to the testimony that blew Nunes’ mind, and since they love seeing him put in his place, they left him some messages for him in the comment thread. You can check out the best comments below:
