The US ambassador to the European Union Gordon Sondland has charged President Donald Trump with the Ukraine affair, although he has not clearly substantiated the allegation of bribery.

At its public hearing in congressional impeachment, Sondland said on Wednesday that there had been a “quid pro quo”. Investigations of the judiciary in Kiev, among others, against Joe Biden, the Democratic presidential candidate, and his son Hunter were the condition for a reception of the Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky in the White House.

As for the restraint of the $400 million granted by the Kiev Congress, he, Gordon Sondland, never knew for certain that they were part of the plan. He himself acted as if that had been the case.

However, the allegation of bribery made by the Democrats against Trump is linked to military aid. They accuse the president of having made the payment of the funds of campaign assistance through Ukraine pending.

In mid-October, Sondland initially stated in a public hearing that there had been no “quid pro quo”. In early November, he corrected his testimony in writing after other witnesses Sondland, who had supported Rudy Giuliani, Trump’s personal lawyer, at the request of the president, to pressure Kiev to investigate.

The White House had said after the corrected statement of Sondland that the ambassador had only wrongly “accepted” that there had been a “quid pro quo” with regard to military aid.

Sondland also confirmed Wednesday a phone conversation with Trump on July 26, the day after his phone call with Zelensky. In this conversation, Trump had asked about the “investigation”, as an American diplomat who hears the phone call in Kiev, had testified.

Later, this diplomat asked Sondland what he thinks about Ukraine. The ambassador answered: For Ukraine, he is “shit”, he is more interested in the investigation of Biden.

Sondland stressed that Giuliani demanded that Ukraine make a public statement and announce the desired investigation. “Mr Giuliani expressed the wishes of the President of the United States, and we knew that this investigation was important to the President.”

The EU ambassador Gordon Sondland also stated that President Trump had issued the explicit directive to speak with his personal lawyer Rudy Giuliani about Ukraine. Energy Secretary Rick Perry, and he would have done that against their own conviction.

“We did not want to work with Giuliani”, Sondland continued. They obeyed the President’s order not to miss the one important opportunity to “cement” relations between the United States and Ukraine.
