Megathread: White House Blocks US Ambassador Gordon Sondland From Testifying Before Congress

Westlake Legal Group fDwlGrDBl1cLTk-GkdjvDgGbI0SwK2DIZOVLXj6eBEg Megathread: White House Blocks US Ambassador Gordon Sondland From Testifying Before Congress r/politics

The White House has blocked the US ambassador to the European Union from speaking to Congress after he was deposed by House committees investigating the president amid an impeachment inquiry.

Gordon Sondland did not appear for his closed-door meeting with Congress on Tuesday morning, as his attorney Robert Luskin said he had no choice following the White House orders.

“He is a sitting ambassador and employee of State and is required to follow their direction,” the attorney reportedly said.

Mr Sondland became enveloped in the president’s impeachment scandal after text messages and a whistleblower complaint revealed he was a witness to allegations against Mr Trump after his July phone call with Ukraine.

The text messages released by House Democrats show Mr Sondland working with another one of Mr Trump’s envoys to get Ukraine to agree to investigate any potential interference in the 2016 US election and of the energy company that appointed former Vice President Joe Biden’s son Hunter to its board.
