Both Republicans and Democrats were "fed up" with Amb. Gordon Sondland by the end of Wednesday's testimony in the impeachment inquiry into President Donald Trump, Fox News' Chris Wallace said Thursday.
"Yes, he did lay out, particularly in his opening statement, very damaging allegations, not only against the president, but against his whole senior team: Vice President [Mike] Pence, Secretary of State [Mike] Pompeo, [acting] chief of staff [Mick] Mulvaney," Wallace said during a discussion on Fox News' "America's Newsroom," reports The Hill. "In the afternoon, as has been pointed out, Republicans poked some holes, some of the things he said — well, he presumed, he believed, he didn't have firsthand evidence."
While Republicans were attacking the credibility of the ambassador to the European Union, Democrats were asking "'why did it take you three times to get to the truth' about all of this," Wallace said. "I think they were all fed up with him."
During his opening statement before the House Intelligence Committee, Sondland said there was a quid pro quo, and said a meeting between Trump and Ukraine President Volodymyr Zelenskiy that would happen under the conditions the Ukraine government would launch politically motivated investigations.
Later in the day, though, Sondland said Trump said in a phone call: "'I want nothing, I want nothing, I want no quid pro quo.'"
