The GOP’s own witnesses blew up their case and a Purple Heart recipient was accused of disloyalty. Here are the biggest takeaways from Tuesday's impeachment hearings.
Andrew Harnik/AP The second week of impeachment hearings began as four officials gave testimony showing how President Donald Trump tried to strongarm Ukraine into delivering politically motivated investigations.  Lt. Col. Alexander Vindman, the top Ukraine expert on the National Security Council, and Jennifer Williams, a State Department official, offered firsthand accounts of Trump's "inappropriate" and "unusual" July 25 phone call with Ukraine's president. Vindman, an immigrant and Purple Heart recipient, gave an emotional opening statement highlighting his sense of duty and love of country while fielding Republican attacks on his patriotism. Kurt Volker, the US's former envoy in Ukraine, and Tim Morrison, a former NSC official, blew a hole through many of Trump's defenses in the impeachment inquiry. The top Republican on the House Intelligence Committee made a telling Freudian slip indicating just how badly the hearing went for the GOP. Scroll down to read the biggest takeaways from Tuesday's marathon testimony. Visit Business Insider's homepage for more stories.

An especially cold text reply about setting boundaries is a copypasta now
As usual, Twitter is Big Mad about yet another divisive take. This time, it's about setting boundaries with friends.  Writer Melissa Fabello posted a thread about establishing limits when it comes to discussing difficult issues. Instead of expecting a space to vent about personal drama, Fabello says, she appreciates when friends ask for it.  "Asking for consent for emotional labor, even from people with whom you have a long-standing relationship that is welcoming to crisis-averting, should be common practice," she tweeted on Monday.  I want to chat briefly about this text that I received from a friend last week: pic.twitter.com/cfwYx3tJQB — Melissa A.

However, she immediately cops an eyeful of bird shit – just as she later stumbles into a pile of rubbish while looking up at a delightful old shop sign. So far, so screwball. Continue reading...
