Speaking to Fox News this Monday, GOP Rep. Liz Cheney (WY) suggested that Democrats are to blame for Turkey’s invasion of northeast Syria, thanks to their impeachment inquiry of President Trump.
According to Cheney, “the impeachment proceedings that are going on and what the Democrats are doing themselves to try to weaken this president is part of this.”
“It was not an accident that the Turks chose this moment to roll across the border,” she continued. “And I think the Democrats have got to pay very careful attention to the damage that they’re doing with the impeachment proceedings.”
According to various reports, Trump decided to withdraw US troops from the region after a phone call with Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan last Sunday. A source familiar with the matter told Newsweek last week that Trump got “rolled” by Erdoğan during the call.

Ken Starr suggests Sondland’s testimony could prompt GOP to ‘make a trip to the White House’ and ask Trump to resign
In the run-up to the release of Gordon Sondland's opening statement for this Wednesday's impeachment hearings, Fox News contributor Ken Starr suggested that Sondland's testimony could cause GOP senators to push for President Trump's resignation.
“The real issue is the senators are watching,” Starr said. “Are senators going to now say in light of what we hear today, it’s going to be a long day even with the ambassador alone, in light of what we have heard, ‘We need to make a trip down to the White House’?"
"That historic example set during the Nixon presidency," Starr continued. "From what I’ve been able to glean I don’t think that’s going to happen. But obviously what happens today could—has the potential to be a game-changer."

Sondland implicated Trump, Rudy Giuliani and Secretary of State Mike Pompeo in a "quid pro quo" with Ukraine.

Gordon Sondland walked into the history books Wednesday morning by delivering damning testimony explicitly implicating President Donald Trump in the Ukraine extortion scheme.
The EU ambassador flipped on the president and other top Trump administration officials -- including Secretary of State Mike Pompeo and Secretary of Energy Rick Perry -- during a devastating opening statement that showed the scheme flowed directly from the White House.
The testimony seemed to catch Republican lawmakers off guard, and shocked and inspired social media users.
