Ambassador Sonderland Testifies He was Unaware of Any “Quid Pro Quo”
Last week’s testimony from E.U. Ambassador Gordon Sondland backed up what President Trump has said from day one: there was no “quid pro quo” between POTUS and Ukraine President Zelensky.
However, Democrats are trying to twist the testimony to say the opposite.
Transcripts of Sonderland’s testimony reveal he never had any firsthand knowledge of any “quid pro quo” involving U.S. military aid traded for Ukraine investigations.
Fortunately, a small Republican counsel was able to enter Schiff’s secret basement hearings and ask Sonderland questions like this: “To the best of your knowledge, do you know about any preconditions on the aid?”
Sonderland replied, “No.”
Sonderland revealed in his testimony a phone call on September 9, 2019, when he called the President and asked him what he wanted from Ukraine.
Trump replied, “I want nothing. I want no quid pro quo. I want Zelensky to do the right thing.”
Sonderland said he replied, “What does that mean?”
POTUS responded, “I want him (Zelensky) to do what he ran on.”
Two days after this phone call, the foreign aid was unfrozen, and Ukraine didn’t have to do anything to get it.
Of course, the Democrats are trying to twist the testimony to fit their narrative by focusing on a small portion of Sonderland’s testimony where he told an aide to
Ukrainian President Zelensky that resumption of U.S. aid “would likely not occur until Ukraine provided the public an anti-corruption statement that we had been discussing for many weeks.”
North Carolina Republican Rep. Mark Meadows attended Sondland’s testimony and took to Twitter to point out the Democrat’s lies on what Sondland testified.
That’s not all Sondland said during his closed-door deposition on October 17th. Find more of his revelations on this fair and unbiased website here.

5 reasons a Senate trial would be a nightmare for Democrats:
Most people with two brain cells already know this impeachment circus is a political sham...however, the Democrats keep going down this path. The House will eventually conduct their official impeachment vote, and then the Senate, by constitutional law, will have to carry out a “trial.” Writer David Marcus over on The Federalist gives five reasons why the GOP will have the advantage—and he points out why a Senate trial will be a disaster for Democrats here.
Meet creepy Mark Zaid, the whistleblower’s attorney:
There are a lot of weird things about Mark Zaid you may not know. For example, he is a fan of young Disney girls...and it gets creepier from there. You will be outraged when you see what he said in a personal tweet about pedophiles.
Democrats better bring their A-Game to this impeachment:
Joe Cunningham, writer on Red State, reminds both Democrats and Trump Supporters there’s a big obstacle waiting in the Senate for those trying to overthrow Trump—and his name is Mitch McConnel—one of the “most meticulous, procedural veterans of the Senate we’ve seen in quite some time.” As Cunningham writes, “If the Democrats don’t score this victory here, then the Democrats will be failures across the board in 2020.”
A lot is at stake right now. Don’t take this impeachment too lightly.
At the very least, let’s make sure the Democrats abide by the constitution in this process. You can stay informed through the Impeachment Alerts newsletter (please forward this email to your friends).
