On Wednesday morning U.S. Ambassador to the European Union Gordon Sondland said that President Trump’s personal lawyer Rudy Giuliani did have a quid pro quo with Ukraine.

Sondland laid out six points related to his participation with the Ukraine scandal. He emphasized the fact that he was working in good faith and that while he felt uncomfortable working with Giuliani, he did not believe it to be wrong since it had been a directive of President Trump.

Soldland’s statement on the quid pro quo was as follows:

“Mr. Giuliani demanded that Ukraine make a public statement announcing investigations of the 2016 election/DNC server and Burisma. Mr. Giuliani was expressing the desires of the President of the United States, and we knew that these investigations were important to the President.”
