DNC on Trump Administration Blocking Sondland Testimony

In response to the Trump administration blocking Ambassador Sondland’s deposition with congressional investigators, DNC Deputy War Room Director Daniel Wessel released the following statement:

“Sondland had direct contact with Trump in the midst of discussions about the quid pro quo, he described Trump’s quid pro quo to Senator Ron Johnson, and now we’ve learned there are text messages being kept secret — his testimony must be heard and the evidence must be secured.

“The White House has refused to comply with Congress at every turn. Trump and his administration’s total disregard for the rule of law is disturbing, and it’s destructive to our democracy. Meanwhile, the Republican National Committee is cheerleading the White House on to defy the law. The American people expect more from their leaders and will hold them accountable.”
