President Trump ousts ambassador Sondland who testified in impeachment inquiry

WASHINGTON (AP) – President Donald Trump has ousted Gordon Sondland, his ambassador to the European Union, who delivered damaging testimony during the impeachment inquiry.

Sondland says in a statement that Trump intends to recall him effectively immediately.

The action comes just hours after Alexander Vindman, the decorated soldier and national security aide who played a central role in the impeachment case, was escorted out of the White House complex Friday.
