Will the real Gordon Sondland please stand up! The Trump administration’s Ambassador to the EU has flipped and is throwing everyone under the bus by saying there was a quid pro quo in Ukraine.
His opening statement reads like the Trump administration didn’t trust Sondland. He is stating his opinion on what he believes happened with Ukraine because he was iced out of conversations.
He also stated, “The President and I never talked about the Bidens.”
How can anyone trust this man? He’s flipped from his testimony in the previous deposition and messages like the one below:
Kayleigh McEnany recalls Sondland’s previous words:
Sondland previously in his own words ⬇️
– @realDonaldTrump “said, ‘I want nothing. I want no Quid Pro Quo. I want Zelensky to do the right thing.’”
– @realDonaldTrump “kept repeating no quid pro quo over and over again. ”
End of story.

Rep. Andy Biggs makes key points to refute Sondland:
Sondland testified that…
⇒ He was not on the July 25 call;
⇒ He read the transcript when it was publicly released;
⇒ No one shared any concerns with him about the call;
⇒ Zelensky didn't bring up any investigations during July 26 in-person meeting. pic.twitter.com/A3rDlXEHZL

Sondland comes off as a disgruntled employee who is angry that he wasn’t included in every element of Ukraine policy:
Sondland commented twice that there was a “quid pro quo”:

Will Chamberlain makes a fantastic point on the intent of President Trump:
“The fact that President Trump requested the Crowdstrike/Burisma investigations on a phone call with tons of people listening in is probative of intent. If he were trying to do some secret bribe, he wouldn’t do it with Alex Vindman on the line. It shows that in President Trump’s mind, the issue of Ukrainian corruption was linked with their meddling in the 2016 election and the Burisma case. President Trump was pursuing the American interest in ending Ukrainian corruption, period.”
UKRAINIAN OFFICIAL CONFIRMS NO QUID PRO QUO ACCORDING TO AMB SONDLAND:
A Ukrainian official sounded the alarm in the impeachment investigation to say that there was no link to military assistance for Ukraine and an investigation into Biden. There was no quid pro quo!
Ukrainian Foreign Minister Vadym Prystaiko said that the US Ambassador Gordon Sondland DID NOT link financial military assistance to a request for Ukraine to open up an investigation into Joe Biden and Hunter Biden.
According to Reuters, Prystaiko commented that “Ambassador Sondland did not tell us, and certainly did not tell me, about a connection between the assistance and the investigations.”
“I have never seen a direct relationship between investigations and security assistance. Yes, the investigations were mentioned, you know, in the conversation of the presidents. But there was no clear connection between these events.”

Looking forward to the takedown of this angry employee!
