The U.S. ambassador to the European Union, Gordon Sondland, told the House Intelligence Committee on Wednesday that he and other advisors "followed the President’s orders" when they pressed Ukraine to announce investigations into the Bidens and the 2016 U.S. presidential election as part of a "quid pro quo." Plus, the fifth 2020 Democratic debate kicks off tonight at 9pm ET in Atlanta, and the House passed a bill supporting protestors in Hong Kong one day after the measure passed unanimously in the Senate.
