Three women — Nicole Vogel, Jana Solis, and Natalie Sept — have accused U.S. Ambassador to the European Union Gordon Sondland, a key witness in President Trump's ongoing impeachment inquiry, of sexual misconduct, ProPublica and Portland Monthly report.

ProPublica and Portland Monthly began reporting the story in October right around when Sondland first testified in the impeachment inquiry. The next day, Nicole Vogel (who owns Portland Monthly but was not involved in the story's editorial process, though she cooperated as a source) addressed her allegations while speaking at a luncheon in Seattle. Vogel said when she met the hotelier-turned-ambassador 16 years ago, Sondland seemed enthusiastic about investing in the magazine. But after she rejected a kiss from him while on a tour of one his hotels, she said he decided not to invest.
