4. I thought the opening segments were intriguing

Recounting the history of how senior republican senator Howard Baker came to take the Watergate hearings seriously. Showed a clip from his 2005 interview.

Then, she proceeded to review documents received via FOIA requests by American Oversight that show a range of republican congressmen requesting from the OMB answers about compliance of payments to Ukraine and support for the security assistance. Letters sent from republicans include: Sen Portman, Sen Inhofe, Sen. Ron Johnson, rep thornberry, rep paul cook, and rep mccaul.

Also, she highlighted a CBS news article from Sept 12:
Several Republican senators, including Trump ally Lindsey Graham of South Carolina, said they would have voted with Democrats. Added Sen. John Kennedy, R-La.: "We support Ukraine. Period. End of discussion."
