Trump: I Blocked Sondland From A “Kangaroo Court”

CBS News reports:

U.S. Ambassador to the European Union Gordon Sondland will be skipping his appearance on Captiol Hill after being deposed for a closed-door meeting as part of the ongoing impeachment inquiry, according to Congressional sources.

Sondland was mentioned in the original whistleblower complaint and a key witness to the Trump-Ukraine dealings.

House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff told reporters on Tuesday that Sondland was in possession of documents on his “personal device” related to Ukraine which the State Department is withholding from the committee.
