The State Department directed European Union Ambassador Gordon Sondland NOT to testify before the House Joint Committee Tuesday on impeachment.
House Intelligence Chairman Rep. Adam Schiff (D-CA) said on Tuesday that “failure to produce this witness” is “strong evidence of obstruction.”
Dem chairs of three key committees, Schiff, Cummings and Engel announced they would issue a subpoena to Mr. Sondland for documents and testimony.
“The White House has once again attempted to impede and obstruct the impeachment inquiry,” the three Democrats said in a statement.
