Gordon Sondland, the U.S ambassador to the European Union, testifies before the House Intelligence Committee Wednesday morning.

They called him the “Gordon problem” — and now he’s a giant problem for President Donald Trump.

Gordon Sondland dropped a bomb into the impeachment inquiry when he said Trump personally directed the improper plan to force Ukraine to open investigations into Democratic rival Joe Biden and a discredited conspiracy theory about the 2016 election.

The Trump megadonor-turned-ambassador to the European Union told congressional impeachment investigators that Trump ordered him to operate under the direction of presidential lawyer Rudy Giuliani, who insisted that Ukraine would not get any support from the U.S. unless it agreed to launch the investigations.
