GOP counsel Stephen Castor questioned Gordon Sondland, the U.S. ambassador to the European Union, on Nov. 20 in a public hearing as part of the impeachment inquiry into President Donald Trump.
Sondland, responding to Castor's questions about Secretary of State Mike Pompeo, testified that the secretary gave him the "green light" to tell Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky about the connection between investigations into the Bidens and the Ukrainian company Burisma, and military aid to Ukraine. Sondland testified Wednesday that there was a “quid pro quo” in which U.S. aid and a White House meeting were contingent on Ukraine agreeing to investigate the 2016 elections and the Ukrainian energy company Burisma, where the son of 2020 presidential candidate Joe Biden, Hunter, sat on the board. Sondland also said he understood the “prerequisites” to be a reflection of “Trump’s desires and requirements.”
