WASHINGTON – President Donald Trump dismissed bombshell testimony delivered Wednesday by Ambassador Gordon Sondland about about a “quid pro quo” on Ukraine and downplayed his ties to his envoy to the European Union.
“I don’t know him very well. I have not spoken to him much. This is not a man I know well,” Trump said of Sondland. “He seems like a nice guy though.”
Testifying on Capitol Hill in the House impeachment inquiry, Sondland confirmed the existence of a “quid pro quo” in which military aid to Ukraine was tied to Trump’s call for an investigation of his political rival, former Vice President Joe Biden.
