New revelations from House Democrats’ impeachment inquiry revealed on Tuesday that US Ambassador to the European Union Gordon Sondland changed his testimony and confirmed the existence of a quid pro quo that involved withholding military aid to Ukraine in exchange for dirt on presidential candidate Joe Biden.

Sondland reportedly said in a declaration submitted to Congress on Monday that he had now “refreshed [his] recollection about certain conversations in early September 2019.”

According to the New York Times:

“The disclosure from Gordon D. Sondland, the United States ambassador to the European Union, in four new pages of sworn testimony released on Tuesday, confirmed his involvement in laying out a quid pro quo to Ukraine that he had previously not acknowledged.”

“I now recall speaking individually with Mr. Yermak, where I said that resumption of U.S. aid would likely not occur until Ukraine provided the public anti-corruption statement that we had been discussing for many weeks,” Sondland said. He’s referring to Andriy Yermak, a top aide to President Volodymyr Zelensky.
