Secretary of State Mike Pompeo on Wednesday bristled when a reporter asked him about Ambassador Gordon Sondland’s testimony.

Sondland, Trump’s ambassador to the European Union, targeted Pompeo, former national security adviser John Bolton and President Donald Trump in public testimony in which he said explicitly that there was a “quid pro quo” linking a White House visit by Ukraine’s president to investigations into a political opponent of Trump’s.

“I didn’t see a single thing today,” Pompeo told an Agence France Press reporter who asked his thoughts on Sondland.

“I was working. Sounds like you might not have been. I was in meetings all day and haven’t had a chance to see any of that testimony.”

Sondland told the House Intelligence Committee that Pompeo directed U.S. diplomats to deal with Trump’s personal lawyer, Rudy Giuliani, on Ukraine.

“Even as late as Sept 24, Secretary Pompeo was directing Kurt Volker to speak with Rudy Giuliani,” Sondland said. “In a WhatsApp message, Kurt Volker told me in part: ‘Spoke w Rudy per guidance from S.’ S means the Secretary of State.”
