EU Ambassador Gordon Sondland testified that Trump ordered, Rick Perry, Kurt Volker, and himself to work with Rudy Giuliani on Ukraine.
Sondland said, “Secretary Perry, Ambassador Volker and I worked with Rudy Giuliani on Ukraine matters at the express direction of the President Of The United States. We did not want to work with Mr. Giuliani. Simply put, we were playing the hand we were dealt. We all understood that if we refused to work with Mr. Giuliani, we would lose a very important opportunity to cement relations between the United States and Ukraine. So we followed the president’s orders.”

There it is in clear and direct terms for the entire country to hear. Trump ordered his administration to work with Rudy Giuliani on an extortion plot to get an investigation of Joe Biden that would benefit his 2020 reelection campaign.
The President Of The United States went beyond knowledge of the impeachable offense. He directed the scheme.
There was no rogue foreign policy going on behind Trump’s back. It was Trump’s plan, and he gave Rudy Giuliani the task of making it happen.
In less than an hour, the Sondland testimony dropped a bombshell on Donald Trump.
