The testimony of the US Ambassador to the EU Gordon Sondland in the US Congress as part of the impeachment procedure proves that US President Donald Trump is innocent, according to the White House.
“President Donald Trump said,” I don’t want anything. I don’t need a quid pro quo. I want Zelensky to do the right thing.” Ambassador Gordon Sondland testified to this in his testimony and has repeatedly confirmed it today. This should be the only conclusion from today’s bogus hearing, and it was stated under oath by the only person in these hearings who has ever spoken directly to President Trump,” the White House press office said in a statement.
It is emphasized that most of Sondland’s testimony was related to his “assumptions.” As the US Ambassador to the EU testified, the US President “never told him that the meeting at the White house or helping Ukraine was related to receiving a public statement from President Zelensky.”
According to the White House, Sondland’s testimony shows that the Democrats ‘ allegations are “unfounded” and serve as a “pathetic attempt” to revise the 2016 election results.
“Sadly, speaker Pelosi (Nancy Pelosi), representative Schiff (Adam Schiff, Chairman of the House Intelligence Committee) and the rest of the House Democrats continue to focus on their impeachment farce instead of working on behalf of the American people – the people they purport to represent,” the White House adds.
Last week, public hearings in the framework of Trump’s impeachment procedure started.
