Earlier today, President Trump stated that he would "love" the US/EU ambassador Gordon Sondland to testify before House impeachment lawmakers against him, and proceeded to label the panel as a "totally compromised kangaroo court". You can see proof of this in the tweet below:
I would love to send Ambassador Sondland, a really good man and great American, to testify, but unfortunately he would be testifying before a totally compromised kangaroo court, where Republican’s rights have been taken away, and true facts are not allowed out for the public....— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) October 8, 2019
According to Sondland's lawyer, the State Department barred Sondland from appearing before the House panel on Tuesday. His lawyer also stated that his client was "profoundly disappointed" that he was not able to testify.
A whistleblower claimed that Sondland played an important role that would support allegations against Trump for digging up dirt on his Democratic rival under the guise of foreign policy.
Is the House really grasping for straws this badly to not allow him to testify because of absurd allegations? What do you think? Let me know in the comments!
Together we can Keep America Great,
