“Millions of Americans will see what a partisan sham this whole thing is.” Rush Limbaugh @foxandfriends Also, why is corrupt politician Schiff allowed to hand over cross examination to a high priced outside lawyer. Did that lawyer ever work for me, which would be a conflict?— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) November 13, 2019
Near as I can find, the answer is no, according to the Washington Post:
Daniel S. Goldman spent a decade as an assistant U.S. attorney in Manhattan, a jurisdiction known for its tough, high-profile cases. He left that job in 2017 to become a television legal analyst but now holds a weightier role questioning witnesses called to testify about President Trump’s effort to persuade Ukraine to investigate a political rival.The Washington Post.
The Democrats have stacked the deck against President Trump and the Republicans. They have leaked out everything. @SteveDoocy @foxandfriends— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) November 13, 2019
Here he’s mad because Hunter Biden, a private citizen, isn’t allowed to testify to what he did to earn his private citizen salary while working for Burisma. He’s also mad because the Democrats and lawyers are protecting the Whistleblowers identity and aren’t allowing him to testify in an open hearing.
“Nancy Pelosi cares more about power than she does about principle. She did not want to go down this road. She realizes this is a huge loser for Democrats. The Founders envisioned the worst people being in politics, yet they couldn’t envision this. You have these people taking…— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) November 13, 2019
…the most powerful tool the legislative branch has, Impeachment, & they’ve turned it into a political cudgel, which is not at all what the Founders intended. When you hear Schiff use all these words like quid pro quo, it is because they can’t specify that Donald Trump broke..— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) November 13, 2019
….any laws or did anything wrong, and they have to move away from quid pro quo because there was no quid, and there was no quo. Ukraine got it’s money (3 weeks early), and there was no investigation.” @CharlesHurt @foxandfriends— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) November 13, 2019
According to his Twitter Bio, Charles Hurt writes for The Washington Times, is a Fox News contributor, and contributes to Breitbart.
Washington Times editor Charles Hurt: "There was no quid, and there was no quo … if there's no quid or pro you can't keep saying 'quid pro quo,' even though I don't even know what that means, really.

WONDER TWIN POWERS ACTIVATE.
READ THE TRANSCRIPT!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) November 13, 2019
I encourage everyone to read the transcript that is still just a memorandum of the telephone call between President Trump and Ukrainian President Zelensky.
I also encourage everyone to check out Just Security‘s “Public Document Clearinghouse: Ukraine Impeachment Inquiry.” They have posted and continue to update all publicly available documents released thus far.
