“No one told me directly that the aid was tied to anything. I was presuming it was.” That was U.S. Ambassador to the European Union Gordon Sondland’s testimony to the House Intelligence Committee on Nov. 20, destroying the concept that $250 million of U.S. military assistance to Ukraine was ever being leveraged by President Donald Trump in exchange for investigations being pursued by Ukraine against Burisma Holdings. Sondland had previously testified on Nov. 4 that he “presumed” military assistance to Ukraine was “likely” being conditioned by the administration when he spoke to a Ukrainian presidential aide on Sept. 1, but that he “did not know… when, why, or by whom the aid was suspended…” So why is there an impeachment inquiry into conditioning military aid to Ukraine on investigations?
