Trump fires key impeachment witness Gordon Sondland as EU ambassador

Gordon Sondland, the US's ambassador to the EU, became the second impeachment witness to be fired on Friday.

Sondland was ousted not long after after Lt. Col. Alexander Vindman, another crucial firsthand witness to President Donald Trump's Ukraine dealings, was abruptly fired and escorted from the White House.

"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.

......Gordon Sondland was abruptly recalled as the US's ambassador to the European Union on Friday.

Sondland was the second witness who testified against President Donald Trump in last year's impeachment hearings to be dismissed from his position Friday. Sondland will continue working at the State Department in an unspecified role.

"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.

Earlier, the White House ousted Lt. Col. Alexander Vindman, who was the top Ukraine expert on the National Security Council (NSC).

Vindman's impeachment testimony enraged President Donald Trump and sparked harsh blowback from the president's allies — including allegations of dual loyalty to Ukraine. Vindman's brother, Lt. Col. Yevgeny Vindman, was also ousted from his role as a senior lawyer and ethics official on the NSC.

Sondland's bombshell impeachment testimony revealed a broad, complex effort to pressure Ukraine into digging up dirt on the president's political rivals that went well beyond Trump's infamous July 25 phone call with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky.

"Everyone was in the loop," Sondland told House investigators, throwing Trump under the bus.

Sondland testified that he, along with Rick Perry, at the time the energy secretary, and Kurt Volker, the former US special representative to Ukraine, worked with Trump's personal lawyer, Rudy Giuliani, on Ukraine matters "at the express direction of the president of the United States."

Is that for real? I hope so! That's the kind of marketing that needs to be out there. A little over the top, but that's good. I'd prefer something listing how much money he's spent on golf. Put them everywhere.

How about a total of tax money spent at Trump associated facilities over the last 3 years compared to the 3 years before he was elected and took control of treasury spending.

It was in the news when it went up in 2017. I think it was vandalized a couple of times with paint ball splatter and a red clown nose that someone added. I think it's still up.

Geez, a million bucks slipped under the table* doesn't buy a steady ambassadorship position like it used to.

* In April 2017, it was revealed that "a collection of shell companies that obscured his involvement" donated $1 million to the Donald Trump Presidential Inaugural Committee.
