Devin Nunes's Face After Gordon Sondland Testified Says Everything About How the Testimony Is Going for Trump, and Now It's a Meme

WASHINGTON, DC - NOVEMBER 19: Ranking member of the House Intelligence Committee Rep. Devin Nunes (L) (R-CA) and minority counsel Steve Castor confer during a hearing before the House Intelligence Committee in the Longworth House Office Building on Capitol Hill November 19, 2019 in Washington, DC. The committee heard testimony from Jennifer Williams, adviser to Vice President Mike Pence for European and Russian affairs, and National Security Council Director for European Affairs Lt. Col. Alexander Vindman, during the third day of open hearings in the impeachment inquiry against U.S. President Donald Trump, whom House Democrats say held back U.S. military aid for Ukraine while demanding it investigate his political rivals.

House Intelligence Committee Ranking Member Devin Nunes (R-CA) and Republican Counsel for the Intelligence Committee Stephen Castor haven't had an easy go of it during these two weeks of public impeachment hearings.

Nunes has delivered little more than conspiracy theories and name-calling in his lackluster rebuttals to Intelligence Committee Chair Adam Schiff's arguments for President Donald Trump's impeachment. The hashtag #DevinNunesIsAnIdiot trended on Twitter for two days straight after the testimony of Lt. Col. Alexander Vindman and Vice Presidential Aide Jennifer Williams.


On Wednesday, after damning testimony from Ambassador to the European Union Gordon Sondland, the looks exchanged between Nunes and Castor as the hearing recessed said it all.

Watch below.

Sondland, who was expected to be one of the witnesses friendlier to Trump, implicated not only the President, his personal lawyer Rudy Giuliani, Vice President Mike Pence, and Secretary of State Mike Pompeo, but Sondland also further confirmed the existence of a quid pro quo: that a White House meeting and investigations into former Vice President Joe Biden had to occur in order to lift a hold on congressionally approved military aid.

Twitter users couldn't help but cackle at the pair's frustration.

It wasn't long until people added their own spin to the viral moment.

Reporters in the room with Nunes noted that the look didn't last for just a moment.

With the seventh round of public impeachment hearings underway today, Nunes face isn't likely to lighten up any time soon.

But in a recent tweet, Baldwin reminded his followers that Trump's ascent and increasing corruption is no laughing matter.

Attorney General William Barr criticized President Donald Trump's tweets about Justice Department prosecutors' sentencing recommendation for Trump ally Roger Stone.

Barr—who overrode the recommendation after Trump railed against it on Twitter—said Trump's tweets made it impossible to do his job, though some people believe his words weren't to rein in Trump, but to mitigate public outrage.

Fox Host Lou Dobbs is not one of those people.

Americans across the country were furious when President Donald Trump fired Lieutenant Colonel Alexander Vindman after Trump was acquitted in his impeachment trial by the Republican Senate.

Vindman complied with a congressional subpoena to testify before the House committee overseeing Trump's impeachment inquiry last year.

The career military official and Purple Heart recipient was escorted out by security along with his twin brother, an NSC official who played no part in the impeachment proceedings.

People cried foul earlier this week when the Justice Department overrode four career prosecutors to recommend a reduced sentence for former Trump campaign advisor Roger Stone.

The Department's decision came only a day after Trump railed against the prosecutors' recommendation on Twitter, leading many to believe the Department reduced the sentence recommendation because the President interceded on his ally's behalf.

All four prosecutors on the case resigned in response to the change.
