Ambassador Sondland Confirms Giuliani Pushed Ukraine Policy

HeadlineOct 18, 2019

U.S. Ambassador to the European Union Gordon Sondland confirmed to House impeachment investigators that President Trump had delegated Rudy Giuliani, his personal attorney, to be in charge of foreign policy around Ukraine, sidestepping the State Department. Sondland said, “I did not understand, until much later, that Mr. Giuliani’s agenda might have also included an effort to prompt the Ukrainians to investigate Vice President Biden or his son or to involve Ukrainians, directly or indirectly, in the president’s 2020 re-election campaign.”
