The House impeachment inquiry has released transcripts of its closed door interviews with EU Ambassador Gordon Sondland and Kurt Volker, the former special envoy to Ukraine. Text message conversations turned over by Sondland to the committee and other witnesses’ testimony has placed Sondland and Gordon at the center of President Donald Trump’s attempts to pressure Ukraine to dig up political dirt on his opponents.

The documents also include new testimony Sondland gave on Nov. 4 as well as the full record of text messages that Volker turned over to the committee.

Dear Reader,

When we asked recently what makes TPM different from other outlets, readers cited factors like honesty, curiosity, transparency, and our vibrant community. They also pointed to our ability to report on important stories and trends long before they are picked up by mainstream outlets; our ability to contextualize information within the arc of history; and our focus on the real-world consequences of the news.

Our unique approach to reporting and presenting the news, however, wouldn’t be possible without our readers’ support. That’s not just marketing speak, it’s true: our work would literally not be possible without readers deciding to become members. Not only does member support account for more than 80% of TPM’s revenue, our members have helped us build an engaged and informed community. Many of our best stories were born from reader tips and valuable member feedback.

We do what other news outlets can’t or won’t do because our members’ support gives us real independence.

If you enjoy reading TPM and value what we do, become a member today.
