Jim Jordan blasts Sondland over omitting Trump’s ‘no quid pro quo’ demand

by Alex Swoyer - The Washington Times  |  Published on November 21, 2019

Rep. Jim Jordan tore into Ambassador to the European Union Gordon Sondland over his decision to not detail President Trump’s explicit no “quid pro quo” demand in a 23-page opening statement during Wednesday’s impeachment hearing.

The Ohio Republican suggested Mr. Sondland didn’t understand that a “quid pro quo” means “this for that” after the ambassador told lawmakers there was a quid pro quo between a White House meeting with Mr. Trump and Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky in return for public announcements of corruption investigations into the 2016 election interference and a Ukrainian energy company linked to former Vice President Joseph R. Biden’s son Hunter.

“You said to the president of the United States, ‘What do you want from Ukraine?’ The president: ‘I want nothing. I want no quid pro quo. I want Zelensky to do the right thing,’ ” Mr. Jordan said.

“You can’t find time to put that in a 23-page opening statement?” he quizzed.
