Sondland said he was acting on Trump's orders, aide told investigators

Source: Politico

Tim Morrison, a top White House national security aide, told impeachment investigators that Gordon Sondland — a U.S. ambassador at the center of the Ukraine scandal imperiling Donald Trump’s presidency — claimed to be acting on Trump’s orders, and was regularly in touch with him.

Though other impeachment witnesses have suggested Sondland has overstating his relationship with the president, Morrison said he was repeatedly able to confirm that the envoy did speak directly with the Trump.

“Every time you went to check to see whether he had, in fact, talked to the president, you found that he had talked to the president?” one lawmaker wondered, according to a transcript of Morrison’s testimony released Saturday.

“Yes,” Morrison replied.

1. Impossible

He barely knew Soundland. A president God sent would not lie. Nikki Halley also said he never lies. End of story. Morrison is a never trumper, big loser, a democrat plant. Witch hunt. Believe me. That I can tell you. Who ya gonna believe, a low level Pence aide of Lindsay Graham, Devin Moonez, Jack-it-off Jordan and God.

5. Sondland used WhatsApp with Ukrainians- Pompeo WON'T release records!

 

This is very important!

Sondland communicated with Ukrainians via WhatApp and he gave the State Department all his communications.
POMPEO refuses to give them to Congress!

Ambassador Gordon Sondland used WhatsApp to send encrypted messages to a top Ukranian official, The Washington Post reported Saturday.The communication occurred with Andriy Yermak, a top aide to President Volodymr Zelensky, when Sondland was in Kyiv, the newspaper reported.“Sondland was also texting back and forth on WhatsApp with Yermak throughout the trip, and had been communicating with other Ukrainian officials over the messaging app in the preceding and subsequent months, according to people familiar with his interactions,” The Post reported.“Most of those messages haven’t been made public or handed over to the House impeachment inquiry. The messages by Sondland that have been released are those in which he was communicating in a three-way conversation with Yermak and former Ukraine special envoy Kurt Volker. Volker, who stepped down from the post after a whistleblower complaint from a CIA analyst triggered the impeachment probe, turned those communications over to the committees leading the inquiry,” “The chairmen of the House Foreign Affairs, Intelligence and Oversight committees subpoenaed communications and documents from Sondland as the inquiry got underway, and Sondland turned over communications from his personal devices to the State Department. But according to a statement by the committee chairmen in October, the State Department withheld them from the impeachment inquiry, defying a subpoena the committees issued to Secretary of State Mike Pompeo,”
