The all cops are bad crowd has jumped on the shooting but you can apparently see gun fire coming from the UPS truck. Should still be fully investigated regardless. Like the police had any choice with all those available hostages around. They had to contain them or it could have really turned bad.

My general impression, and this is based on only about 1/2 hour I was able to watch, Sondland is trying to say Trump is guilty and Trump is innocent. He really does think he can say A is true and A is false.

Per Maddow, the court has extended Stone's gag order. Presumably until at least sentencing. (TL;DRW.)
I think the judge is doing Stone a favor, keeping him off the interwebz will probably save the judge from tacking on a couple more years for more stupidity.
