    (Reuters) - U.S. Ambassador to the European Union Gordon Sondland, who testified in President Donald Trump’s impeachment inquiry, said on Friday that Trump intends to recall him from his post. “I was advised today that the President intends to recall me effective immediately as United States Ambassador to the European Union,” Sondland said in a statement.

    President Trump and his aides wasted little time opening a campaign of retribution against those he blames for his impeachment, firing on Friday two of the most prominent witnesses in the inquiry against him barely 48 hours after the Senate acquitted the president. Emboldened by his victory and determined to strike back, Mr. Trump fired Gordon D. Sondland, the ambassador to the European Union, within hours of the White House dismissing Lt. Col. Alexander S. Vindman, a decorated Iraq war veteran who was a Ukraine expert on the National Security Council. Both officials testified to a House committee about the...

    Gordon Sondland has been one of the key figures to testify in the impeachment hearings. His appearance before Congress last week was lauded on the left as “impeachment testimony for the ages,” though his testimony hasn’t swayed public support for impeach very much. Today, ProPublica published a story which is likely to make Sondland regret his newly enlarged public profile. Three women claim that Sondland engaged in sexually inappropriate behavior toward them. Furthermore, the women claim that after they rejected his advances, his support for them vanished.The ProPublica piece was published in coordination with a magazine called Portland Monthly....

    Three women say they experienced sexual misconduct by Gordon Sondland before he was the US ambassador to the European Union and at the center of the presidential impeachment inquiry. They say he retaliated against them professionally after they rejected his advances. In one case, a potential business partner recalls that Sondland took her to tour a room in a hotel he owns, only to then grab her face and try to kiss her. After she rejected him, she says, Sondland backtracked on investing in her business. Another woman, a work associate at the time, says Sondland exposed himself to her...
  • Turley Tells Disappointed CBS Hosts: Impeachment ‘Designed to Fail’

    Appearing on Friday’s CBS This Morning, legal analyst and constitutional law scholar Jonathan Turley completely shattered the hopes of Democrats and the liberal media that President Trump would be successfully impeached and removed from office. He trashed the proceedings for presenting “the thinnest evidentiary record” and declared the effort was “designed to fail.” After fellow CBS News legal analyst and anti-Trump Bulwark writer Kim Wehle assured the morning show anchors that Democrats “absolutely” made the case for impeachment, co-host Gayle King turned to Turley and wondered: “Jonathan, do you feel the same?” Turley threw a wet blanket on the discussion:...

    State Department staffer David Holmes refused to promise Congress on Thursday afternoon that he would be more responsible in future with sensitive communications. The political officer for the U.S. embassy in Kyiv, Ukraine, was testifying in the last public hearing of the House Intelligence Committee impeachment inquiry. He said that he had overheard a phone conversation at an outdoor restaurant between President Donald Trump and U.S. Ambassador to the E.U. Gordon Sondland in which Trump had mentioned “investigations.” Though he did not take notes of that portion of the call, and had been drinking wine, Holmes said that his...

    Almost everyone so far has provided worthless hearsay as did Fiona Hill who left by July 19th before the phone call, but Morrison was listening in on the phone call and said he heard nothing illegal and declated in testimony along with Volker there was Quid Pro Quo, bribery or extortion. She though appears to have lied through her teeth as even left-wing publications like Politico and others have confirmed Ukraine's role in 2016 election interference despite her attempts today to downplay their role. At the very least she would have blatantly and shamelessly provided a False Choice if both...

    United States Ambassador to the European Union Gordon Sondland said Wednesday that he and his wife had received personal threats and boycotts of his Oregon hotels ahead of his congressional testimony. Sondland was the founder and former chairman of Provenance Hotels, which have been savaged online and in person after his name was connected with the impeachment investigation. Pro-impeachment organizers on Twitter posted videos of their protests at Sondland’s hotels on Wednesday, featuring signs calling Sondland “a lying jerk” and demanding that he “tell the truth.”

    Democrats were working on another nothingburger Wednesday with Ambassador Gordon Sondland's testimony. Not only did Sondland admit again that the only direct evidence he has on Trump is Trump's own statement saying he wanted nothing from Ukraine — "no quid pro quo" — but he also had to admit he has zero evidence Trump even tried to connect the military aid to the investigations of 2016 election interference and Burisma. This exchange between Ohio Rep. Mike Turner and Sondland just destroyed the Democrats' case. "Is that your testimony today, Ambassador Sondland, that you have evidence that Donald Trump tied the...

    (Video at Source) On Wednesday’s broadcast of MSNBC’s special coverage of the House Intelligence Committee’s impeachment inquiry, “Deadline” host Nicolle Wallace discussed the European Union Ambassador Gordon Sondland’s testimony. She continued, “The bombshell there was no irregular policy channel. There was the channel. It was run by Donald J. Trump, Mike Pence, Mike Pompeo, the secretary of state. That channel directed an extortion of the government, the country of Ukraine, in exchange for dirt on Joe Biden — full stop.”

    Rep. Mike Turner (R-OH) hammered U.S. Ambassador to the European Union Gordon Sondland on Wednesday during Democrats’ impeachment inquiry hearing on the House Intelligence Committee. Hill got Sondland to admit that “no one on this planet” told him that financial assistance to Ukraine was connected to any investigations. “After you testified, Chairman [Adam] Schiff ran out and gave a press conference and said he gets to impeach the president of the United States because of your testimony and if you pull up CNN today, right now, their banner says ‘Sondland ties Trump to withholding aid,'” Turner said. “Is that your...

    Oregon Congressman Earl Blumenauer's call for a boycott of Gordon Sondland's hotels got a short spin in the impeachment spotlight Wednesday morning as Republicans blasted the congressman for "bullying" a congressional witness. U.S. Rep. Mike Conway, a West Texas Republican, used his three minutes of committee time Wednesday, Nov. 20, to slam Blumenauer's boycott call. Conway said the boycott was intended to intimidate Sondland during his congressional testimony before the House Intelligence Impeachment Inquiry. "Mr. Blumenauer should not be using the vast influences that we have to bully you (Sondland) and your businesses into harm the hundreds or thousands of...

    WASHINGTON (AP) — Ambassador Gordon Sondland declared to impeachment investigators Wednesday that President Donald Trump and his lawyer Rudy Giuliani explicitly sought a “quid pro quo” with Ukraine, leveraging an Oval Office visit for political investigations of Democrats. But he also came to believe the trade involved much more.

    President Donald J. Trump said, “I want nothing. I want no Quid Pro Quo. I want Zelensky to do the right thing.” Ambassador Gordon Sondland testified to this in his deposition and repeatedly affirmed it today. That should be the only takeaway from today’s sham hearing, and it was stated under oath by the only person in these hearings who has ever spoken directly to President Trump. Though much of today’s testimony by Ambassador Sondland was related to his presumptions and beliefs, rather than hard facts, he testified to the fact that President Trump never told him that a White...

And I’ve been asking Tim Cook from the day I got elected — from the campaign, I’ve been asking Tim Cook to, if they would, we want to see Apple build here; that way, you have no tariffs. There’s no tariffs. When companies come to our country and they build, there’s no tariffs. The economy is doing unbelievably well. We continue to talk to China. China wants to make...

    Ok, so now weÂ’re supposed to impeach a sitting President of the United States based not just on hearsay and rank gossip, but on what Gordon Sondland assumed. And thus, the dumbest impeachment effort in the history of the known universe continues apace. Ambassador Sondland gave us a 45 minute opening statement this morning, longer even than the mind-numbing long and winding road of hearsay and gossip delivered by Bill Taylor a week ago. During that opening statement, the self-serving Sondland threw literally everyone involved in this entire Ukrainian fake controversy under the bus. He did his best to leave...

    Gordon Sondland keeps getting bad reviews. The U.S. ambassador to the European Union has been caught in the crosshairs of Democrats investigating President Trump’s associates in the impeachment inquiry, as more evidence has come to light that he enabled a quid-pro-quo arrangement with Ukrainian officials. And now, as his political troubles have worsened, so too have those affecting his business. Reviewers on Yelp are taking out their anger with Sondland by leaving one-star ratings for the hotels to which he is linked. “If you’re looking for a hotel owned by a Trump supporter who gave the campaign a million dollars...
