US Ambassador to the European Union, Gordon Sondland, has been testifying before the House Intelligence Committee as part of the public impeachment hearing for President Trump. It didn’t take long for him to start receiving backlash for his testimony.
During his testimony on Wednesday, Sondland said that his family and hotels have received countless threats. Rep. Mike Conway (R-TX) spoke out on the repercussions Sondland has had to deal with after Democrats called for people to boycott his businesses.

The person who initiated the call to boycott Sondland’s hotels in Oregon was Congressman Earl Blumenauer (D-OR). During the hearing, Conway said,
“The chairman also announces at every hearing that he will not tolerate, and I agree with him, any witness intimidation or any threats or any issues of trying to bully a witness. Congressman Earl Blumenauer from Oregon has in fact called for a boycott of your hotel chain or your hotels in Oregon. I’m assuming he believes that will harm you to the point that you will then be bullied into doing whatever he wants done.”
Just last week, Dems were freaking out over imagined witness intimidation when President Trump tweeted about former US Ambassador to Ukraine Marie Yovanovitch. Apparently, intimidating people is only acceptable if you’re on their side.
