Trump impeachment witness Gordon Sondland sues Mike Pompeo, U.S. for $1.8 million



  • Gordon Sondland sued former Secretary of State Mike Pompeo and the U.S. for $1.8 million in reimbursement for legal fees incurred during Trump’s first impeachment probe.


  • The lawsuit alleges Pompeo “made a legally binding promise, both individually and on behalf of the Government,” to pay Sondland’s attorneys’ fees after the ambassador was subpoenaed to testify before Congress.


  • Sondland in 2019 had testified before Congress that then-President Donald Trump sought a “quid pro quo” with Ukraine.


Gordon Sondland, who as a U.S. ambassador in 2019 accused then-President Donald Trump of seeking a “quid pro quo” with Ukraine, on Monday sued former Secretary of State Mike Pompeo and the U.S. for $1.8 million in reimbursement for legal fees incurred during Trump’s first impeachment probe.


The lawsuit alleges Pompeo “made a legally binding promise, both individually and on behalf of the Government,” to pay Sondland’s attorneys’ fees after the then-ambassador to the European Union was subpoenaed to testify before Congress.



But Pompeo allegedly “reneged on his promise” after learning what Sondland would say to the congressional investigators: that Trump and his aides, including Rudy Giuliani, pressured Ukraine to announce investigations that would involve then-potential Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden and his son Hunter Biden.
