Gordon Sondland, the U.S. ambassador to the European Union, will testify to Congress next week that President Trump assured him he was not withholding military aid to Ukraine in return for Kyiv investigating former Vice President Joe Biden's son, Hunter, a person familiar with his testimony told The Washington Post. Sondland will reportedly say that a text message he wrote denying a quid pro quo with Ukraine came after he spoke with Trump, who told him there was no such thing, and that he is unsure as to why the aid was held up. Sondland plans to testify Thursday under subpoena after the administration initially directed him not to participate in the impeachment inquiry.
