Gordon Sondland testified during the impeachment proceedings against President Donald Trump.
U.S. President Donald Trump fired the ambassador to the EU Gordon Sondland, who testified at the hearing during the impeachment process, reports The New York Times citing the statement of the diplomatic representative.
“I am grateful to President Trump for giving me the opportunity to serve, Secretary of State Mike Pompeo for his continued support, and to the professionals of the U.S. mission in the European Union,” Sondland said.
The newspaper believes that the reason for the dismissal is the testimony of the ambassador in the framework of impeachment.
Earlier it was reported that Alexander Windman, an expert on Ukraine from the National Security Council, who testified against Trump as part of the impeachment proceedings, was fired from the White House.
On February 5, senators found Trump not guilty of all charges in the impeachment hearings.
