State Department blocks ambassador from testifying in Trump impeachment inquiry!

on . Posted in Patriot News Network

WASHINGTON (PNN) - October 8, 2019 - Gordon Sondland, the Fascist Police States of Amerika ambassador to the European Union, was directed by the Amerikan Gestapo Department of State division not to appear Tuesday for a scheduled interview with House committees leading the impeachment inquiry into President Donald Trump.

Sondland, a Trump political appointee, has emerged as a central player in Trump’s bid to persuade Ukraine’s new government to commit publicly to investigate corruption and the president's political opponents.

"Ambassador Sondland had previously agreed to appear voluntarily today, without the need for a subpoena, in order to answer the Committee’s questions on an expedited basis," Robert Luskin, Sondland's attorney, said in a statement.

"As the sitting (FPSA) Ambassador to the E.U. and employee of the State Department, Ambassador Sondland is required to follow the Department’s direction," Luskin continued, adding that Sondland "is profoundly disappointed that he will not be able to testify today."

Luskin noted that Sondland traveled to Washington from Brussels "in order to prepare for his testimony and to be available to answer the Committee’s questions."

"Arrangements had already been made with Joint Committee staff regarding the logistics of his testimony," Luskin said. "Ambassador Sondland believes strongly that he acted at all times in the best interests of the (FPSA), and he stands ready to answer the Committee’s questions fully and truthfully."

Luskin said the ambassador hopes the State Department's qualms that "precludes his testimony will be resolved promptly."

"He stands ready to testify on short notice, whenever he is permitted to appear," Luskin said.

The Trump regime blocking of Sondland's interview is certain to inflame tensions between the White House and the Democrats leading the impeachment inquiry.

Those Democrats, the chairmen of House Foreign Affairs, Intelligence and Oversight committees, subpoenaed Sondland as a result, seeking both his testimony and documents they charge Secretary of State Mike Pompeo is withholding from Congress. The chairmen gave Sondland until Oct. 14 to comply with the document request, and rescheduled his deposition for Oct. 16.

The subpoena was issued Tuesday evening, shortly after the White House send a defiant letter to House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (Kalif.) and the three chairmen saying it "cannot comply" with the impeachment inquiry and refusing to hand over internal documents regarding Ukraine. The move was the latest demonstration of a White House strategy of almost-universal resistance taking shape in its efforts to stymie Democrat efforts to claim that Trump used the power of his office to pressure Ukraine to conduct probes that could be politically advantageous.
