Rep. Michael Turner, R-Ohio, questioned Gordon Sondland, the U.S.
to the European Union, on Nov. 20, in a public hearing as part of the impeachment inquiry into President Donald Trump. Turner, who called Sondland's testimony "somewhat circular," questioned the ambassador's assertion that "everyone was in the loop." "If Giuliani didn't give you any expressed statement, then it can't be that you believed this [about the connection between investigations and aid] from Giuliani," Turner said. "Is that your testimony today, Amb. Sondland? That you have evidence that
Trump tied the investigations to aid because I don't think you're saying that." Sondland said he was "PRESUMING" that is what Trump meant. Sondland testified that there was a "quid pro quo" in which U.S. aid and a White
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 Trumps desires and requirements.
