People on former President Trump’s impeachment team are surprised by the turn of events this morning. Some who have been helping the team had been making travel plans to leave on Monday, according to a source familiar.
As of 9 a.m. ET this morning the team was under the impression there would be no witnesses. Now, the source groaned “it will never end.”
Another source confirmed they're shocked by this development. While they had floated having a list of witnesses, they hadn't prepared a real list, the source said. They're huddling now on the phone with other aides about how to proceed.
