Trump reacts to Sondland testifying that there was a "quid pro quo"
Wednesday, 20 November 2019 () As U.S. Ambassador to the EU Gordon Sondland publicly testified in the impeachment hearing that President Trump engaged in a politically-charged quid pro quo, Mr. Trump focused on the part of his testimony that would help his case: Sondland said Mr. Trump told him on a September 9 call that he wanted "nothing" and "no quid pro quo" from Ukraine's president. September 9 is the day the whistleblower's complaint was formally filed with Congress.
Ambassador Gordon Sondland, thought by both Republicans and Democrats to be a significant witness in the impeachment hearings, claimed there was a "quid pro quo" to grant a White House meeting, and said he was not acting alone.
