Sondland gave over $1 million to Trump's inauguration.... he's about to go under the bus

https://www.washingtonpost.com/investigations/disruptive-diplomat-gordon-sondland-a-key-figure-in-trump-impeachment-furor-long-coveted-ambassadorship/2019/10/14/c5afb950-ec3f-11e9-9c6d-436a0df4f31d_story.html

To realize his goal, Sondland made a political about-face and backed Donald Trump, a candidate he once said was out of touch with his “personal beliefs and values on so many levels.” After the election, Sondland contributed $1 million to Trump’s inaugural. And he began calling in political favors — including from Republican National Committee chairman-turned-White House Chief of Staff Reince Priebus — to convince Trump that he could be a team player.

The person with knowledge of Sondland’s testimony said Sondland took Trump at his word at the time, but that he has no knowledge of whether the president’s statement was true, as he only learned details such as the importance of the Biden mention from the whistleblower’s complaint.

Nierenberg, Sondland’s acquaintance from Portland, said he sent him an email recently urging that in the impeachment inquiry Sondland “tell the truth, the whole truth, and nothing but the truth.”

Niergenberg said Sondland wrote back thanking him for the advice.

1. That parking spot under the bus is pretty expensive.

3. Trump Swamp Dweller.


Maybe he'll listen to his attorney and his Portland acquaintance.

Do any of these swamp dwellers even KNOW what it means to
“tell the truth, the whole truth, and nothing but the truth?”

His turn in the barrel.
