Here's the twitter feed to a reporter in the courthouse today. Gates is testifying. Not a lot that would damage trump but it sounds like the prosecutors have the documents to prove Stone lied to congress.

Re: White House Impeachment Response Strategy

Mulvaney aide said a team of White House lawyers prepared him for the news conference and never said he should not do it.

Considering trump's campaign immediately started selling "Get over it," merch, I think Mulvaney is on the underbus short list.
