Impeachment hearings: Sondland says there was a ‘quid pro quo’ for Ukraine///CRIMSON TAZVINZWA
Gordon Sondland, the former US ambassador to the EU, opened up testimonies on Wednesday, which marked the fourth day of the ongoing public impeachment hearings on President Trump’s dealings with Ukraine.
On the third day of impeachment hearings, the Republican “hearsay” defense fell apart, as the Intelligence Committee heard from two first hand witnesses who listened to Trump’s call with the president of Ukraine. And despite GOP claims that the call was “normal,” two other witnesses testified that they had never heard a call like that before.
Here are some highlights of Sondland’s testimony so far: – Says there was a Ukraine “quid pro quo” – Says he “followed the directions” from POTUS – On top officials in the Ukraine pressure campaign, he said that “everyone was in the loop,” including Mike Pompeo and Mick Mulvaney.
