Sondland sues Pompeo, U.S. for $1.8 million in legal fees: report

Gordon Sondland, former President Donald Trump’s former ambassador to the European Union, filed a lawsuit on Monday against former Secretary of State Mike Pompeo and the U.S. government seeking $1.8 million for legal fees incurred during the 2019 House impeachment probe, according to a Washington Post report. The suit alleges that Pompeo reneged on his promise that the State Department would cover the fees after Sondland delivered testimony accusing Trump and his aides of pressuring Ukraine to investigate Joe Biden and his son Hunter in exchange for military aid.
