‘Strong evidence of obstruction’—Trump blocks top witness from testifying in impeachment investigation

More 'obstruction'—Trump blocks key witness from testifying in impeachment inquiry

Ambassador Gordon Sondland, a key witness, was scheduled to testify today as part of the impeachment inquiry. However, he was ordered not to appear:

The House Intelligence Chairman, Adam Schiff, calls this decision “strong evidence of obstruction” saying it deprives the American people of Sondland’s testimony.

At least some of the texts that Schiff is referring to have been floating around online for at least a week. They record an exchange between Ambassador Sondland and Bill Taylor, an American diplomat. Taylor expresses his concern for withholding “security assistance for help with a political campaign.

Democrats warned Secretary of State, Mike Pompeo, last month that the “failure of any of these Department employees to appear for their scheduled depositions shall constitute evidence of obstruction of the House’s impeachment inquiry.”

It is likely this is only the beginning.
