From VOA News:
Senior White House Official Testifies Privately in Trump Impeachment Probe By Wayne Lee November 16, 2019 01:16 PM WASHINGTON – A senior White House budget official arrived on Capitol Hill Saturday to testify behind closed doors before congressional investigators who are conducting an impeachment inquiry against U.S. President Donald Trump.

Mark Sandy, a longtime career official with the Office of Management and Budget, is the first agency employee to be deposed in the inquiry after three employees appointed by Trump defied congressional subpoenas to testify. It remains unclear if a subpoena had been issued to Sandy.

Sandy could provide valuable information about the U.S. delay of nearly $400 million in aid to Ukraine last summer, allegedly in exchange for the newly-elected Ukrainian president to launch investigations into 2020 Democratic presidential hopeful Joe Biden and his son at Trump’s request. Investigators are also exploring debunked claims promoted by Trump and allies that Ukraine, and not Russia, interfered in the 2016 U.S. presidential election.

Sandy was among the career employees who questioned the holdup, according to people with knowledge of the matter.

  1. Thanks. I am happy that VOA still is able to do some good work, and not overtaken yet. There seems to be less original documentation published in the US House – I wonder if Cummings’ team is still in place.

    • PS: My heart is really no longer in the impeachment inquiry – almost 3 years on – but I try to put things for the record. To me it is obvious what was done is wrong and I am tired.
