Sondland says the content of a text he wrote denying a quid pro quo w/ UKR was relayed (dictated) to him directly by Trump in a phone call.

“Trump said UKR ‘tried to do me in.’

They surmised that Giuliani had filled Trump’s head w/ a number of baseless conspiracy theories, inc’g that the hacked DNC server was spirited away to Ukraine.

Trump: “If you want to do something you have to talk to Rudy.”

Giuliani acknowledged that he and his associates worked with (corrupt) Ukrainian prosecutors to collect potentially damaging information about Amb Yovanovitch and other targets of Trump and his allies including Biden & Hunter Biden.

Trump told Lavrov & Kislyak in the infamous May 2017 Oval Office meeting that he was unconcerned about Moscow’s interference in the U.S. election because the United States did the same in other countries, an assertion that prompted alarmed White House officials.

The same meeting in which Trump revealed highly classified information that exposed a source of intelligence on the Islamic State.

He also said during the meeting that firing FBI Director James B. Comey the day before had relieved “great pressure” on him.

A memorandum summarizing the meeting was limited to all but a few officials with the highest security clearances in an attempt to keep the president’s comments from being disclosed publicly.

It is not clear if the memo was placed into the secret system.
