would cover the costs of complying with a House subpoena stemming from Trump’s first impeachment stemming from allegations that he pressured Ukrainian leadership to investigate then-candidate Joe Biden and his son Hunter in exchange for military aid.

act was especially problematic in this instance because the amount of preparation needed to comply with the subpoenas was staggering,” it continues. “Ambassador Sondland was required to prepare for highly charged testimony under oath with international scrutiny without access to materials or anyone from the Government agencies which had knowledge of all the facts relevant to his testimony.
