Ambassador Sondland gives evidence at President Trump impeachment hearing

American Ambassador to the EU Gordon Sondland talks about the dealings he was involved with relating to the Ukranian government.

Sondland, the most highly anticipated witness in the public impeachment probe, made clear that he believed Trump was pursuing his desire for investigations in return for the Oval Office meeting that the Eastern European nation's president sought.

Sondland said he later came to believe military aid for Ukraine was also being held up until the investigations were launched.

The impeachment inquiry focuses significantly on allegations that Trump sought investigations of Democrat Joe Biden and his son β€” and the discredited idea that Ukraine rather than Russia interfered in the 2016 U.S. election β€” in return for the badly needed military aid as well as the White House visit.
