Sondland sues Pompeo, regime government for legal fees from Trump impeachment probe

Source: NBC News

“Former U.S. ambassador to the United Kingdom, Gordon Sondland, filed a lawsuit Monday in federal court against former Secretary of State Mike Pompeo and the U.S. government, seeking $1.8 million in legal fees he accumulated during the first House impeachment investigation against then-President Donald Trump. The suit says that Pompeo failed to follow through on a ‘legally binding promise’ in which the federal government would reimburse Sondland for the legal fees he incurred during the 2019 House impeachment investigation against Trump. … Once Pompeo learned of Sondland’s testimony, which the former ambassador’s lawyers described as ‘entirely candid and truthful’ about Trump’s quid pro quo with the Ukrainian leader, ‘Pompeo reneged on his promise.'” [editor’s note: It should have been obvious before then that trusting Mike Pompeo is always a mistake – TLK] (05/24/21)
