23. Good catch. While I appreciated the reminder of the July 11, 2018

Delegation of republicans to Moscow, I overlooked that drop in timelines, as I guess, my brain grabbed the significance of the departure of the first of the four, the Marines commandant, on July 11 this year because I associated it with Sondland's testimony about his July 10 exchanges as a Ukrainian delegation paid a visit to the WH.

Is there a connection between the Ukraine scandal and changes to military leadership? Maybe and maybe not. Is the timing alone against the backdrop of the layers of ratf*ckery that got to me in considering whether republicans and this administration are sliding towards authoritarian ends either by design or bumbling mistakes.

Nonetheless, itís good you pointed that out. And probably be good for the OP to be edited to reflect this.

On edit: Aha, itís already been updated! Good deal!
