WASHINGTON — U.S. Ambassador to the European Union Gordon Sondland will tell Congress on Thursday that Rudy Giuliani told him President Donald Trump wanted Ukraine’s new government to investigate both the 2016 election and a natural gas firm tied to Hunter Biden, according to prepared testimony obtained by NBC News.

Sondland will testify that Giuliani, Trump’s personal lawyer, even mentioned getting the Ukrainians to investigate “the DNC server” — a reference to a Democratic National Committee computer that plays prominently in a debunked conspiracy theory about Ukrainian interference in 2016.

The article goes on to state the following:

The ambassador is expected to tell House investigators that he ultimately learned that Giuliani, far from freelancing, was advancing Trump’s goals when he pushed for Ukraine to investigate the president’s political opponents.

Sondland, a wealthy hotelier who donated about $1 million to Trump’s inaugural committee, had no previous diplomatic experience prior to Trump nominating him as ambassador to the EU in 2017, NBC reported.

In his 18-page statement, Sondland also reportedly condemns the State Department for trying to block his testimony.
