Witness Trump’s Impeachment Sues Pompeo Over $ 1.8 Million in Legal Fees

A Pompeo spokesman called the lawsuit “ridiculous” and said Pompeo was “confident the court would see it the same way”.

WASHINGTON – Gordon Sundland, the Trump administration ambassador to the European Union and a key witness in the 2019 impeachment case, has sued former Secretary of State Mike Pompeo in a bid to recoup $ 1.8 million in legal fees.

Sundland, in a lawsuit filed in federal court in Washington, D.C., claims that Pompeo pledged to pay his legal costs after being summoned by Democrats to the House of Representatives to testify in an impeachment case accusing then-President Donald Trump of withholding military aid. from Ukraine, investigation against political rival Joe Biden and his son Hunter.

Instead, Sondland said, Pompeo “broke his promise” after learning the details of his testimony.

A Pompeo spokesman called the lawsuit “ridiculous” and said Pompeo was “confident the court would see it the same way”.

Trump was ousted from the House of Representatives but released by the Senate in February 2020.

According to the lawsuit, Sundland was fired a few days after Trump’s acquittal “simply because he told the truth.” He said the reluctance to cover their legal fees was not only a breach of obligation and a “normal convention”, but was “particularly problematic in this case, as the amount of preparation required to comply with the invitations was astonishing”.

The lawsuit was first reported by the Washington Post.
