President Donald Trump says ‘it’s all over’ for impeachment inquiry after Sondland testimony.
Before leaving the White House President Trump reacted to the testimony from his E.U. ambassador, Gordon Sondland, in the impeachment inquiry. He denies that there was any quid pro quo. He says he told the ambassador in a phone call that he wanted nothing from Ukraine and that he should tell President Zelensky to “do the right thing.”
President Trump on Wednesday said that Ambassador to the European Union Gordon Sondland’s testimony before the House Intelligence Committee should exonerate him of any claims of wrongdoing in the ongoing impeachment inquiry into him.
“I just noticed one thing and that would mean it’s all over,” Trump said on the White House lawn before reading from handwritten notes taken during Sondland’s testimony.
Sondland testified about a conversation with Trump where he asked the president what he wanted from Ukraine.
“And it was a very short, abrupt conversation,” the ambassador said. “He was not in a good mood. And he just said, ‘I want nothing. I want nothing. I want no quid pro quo. Tell Zelensky to do the right thing.’ Something to that effect.”
While Trump argued that Sondland’s statement proves there was no quid pro quo between his administration and Ukraine — the matter at the heart of the impeachment probe — Sondland gave a more nuanced account.
He confirmed he never heard directly from Trump on a quid pro quo linking military aid for Ukraine to politically advantageous investigations. More
Ambassador Gordon Sondland just testified that he has no evidence against President Donald Trump, other than his own presumption.
The Democrats are like gamblers who refuse to admit defeat: “Two out of three! Three out of five! Five out of seven!” They are willing to sacrifice every dime of taxpayer money to win!
At this point, it’s like watching SNL.
