Former Energy Secretary Rick Perry’s team is pushing back on Ambassador to the European Union Gordon Sondland’s Wednesday testimony, saying the words “Biden” and “Burisma” did not come up during conversations between Perry and the president’s personal attorney Rudy Giuliani.

The Department of Energy said in a statement Wednesday that Sondland misrepresented Perry’s communications with Giuliani and the president.

The article goes on to state the following:

Sondland testified Wednesday in front of the House Intelligence Committee that he updated Perry and other senior administration officials over email about how a meeting between Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky and Trump was contingent on the country’s willingness to investigate former Vice President Joe Biden.

TRUMP TWEETS: Statement on Sondland testimony

The Department of Energy posted the following press release on their website Wednesday afternoon:

The following statement is on the record, attributable to DOE Press Secretary Shaylyn Hynes:

“Ambassador Sondland’s testimony today misrepresented both Secretary Perry’s interaction with Rudy Giuliani and direction the Secretary received from President Trump. As previously stated, Secretary Perry spoke to Rudy Giuliani only once at the President’s request. No one else was on that call. At no point before, during or after that phone call did the words ‘Biden’ or ‘Burisma’ ever come up in the presence of Secretary Perry.”

    Well what do you know the Corrupt Ambassador was lying, he is a Soros Buddy and lied under oath.
    Stick your $55,000 watch where the sun doesn’t shine.
    This Coup needs to end, I still believe the Military should step in and arrest them all.

    It is just maddening to listen to what they THINK they are going to be able to do. I hope the Good Lord dishes out justice for one and all. It is about time to LEAVE OUR PRESIDENT ALONE!
