Internet explodes after White House blocks EU diplomat testimony: 'Put that crook in jail!'

Upon news that Donald Trump’s ambassador to the European Union was refusing to testify before a Democratic-controlled House committee on the advice of the State Department just hours before he was slated to appear, the internet exploded with the accusations of another White House cover-up.


According to a New York Times report, the Trump administration ordered European Union ambassador Gordon Sondland to stand up the committee members expecting to question him about his role in getting the Ukrainian government on board with investigating former Vice President Joe Biden.

The reaction was swift, with one Twitter commenter stating the stonewalling was just one more item to add to Trump’s impeachment charges.
