Here we have the explanation for tRump’s bizarre response to Sondland’s September 9, 2019, question:
“What do you want?”
The response by Orange Hitler was meant to be taken note of and repeated—
“I want nothing. I want nothing. I want no quid pro quo. Tell Zelensky — President Zelensky to do the right thing.”
Trump had been briefed on the whistleblower’s report prior to this call. This also explains his sudden change of heart regarding withholding the $400 million aid package designated for the Ukraine. He released the aid on 4 October.
Legal Definition of Consciousness of Guilt:
“Evidentiary rules allow a prosecutor to introduce testimony that tends to show that the defendants actions prove he knew he was guilty (at least of something). This is sometimes referred to as “consciousness of guilt”. For example, such evidence may include actions the defendant took to “cover up” his alleged crime. Flight, when unexplained, may indicate consciousness of guilt if the facts and the circumstances support it. A person’s false statements as to (his/her) whereabouts at the time of the offense may tend to show a consciousness of guilt.”
