A U.S. diplomat on Wednesday described broad involvement at the most senior levels of the Trump administration in a pressure campaign against Ukraine on Day 4 of the impeachment hearings against President Donald Trump.

Gordon Sondland, the U.S. ambassador to the European Union, said he "followed the president's orders" to work with Trump's personal lawyer Rudy Giuliani, who was pushing Ukraine to carry out two investigations that would benefit Trump politically as he runs for re-election in November 2020.

Sondland's testimony was among the most significant in the four days of public hearings in the Democratic-led House of Representatives impeachment inquiry that has captivated Washington and threatens the presidency of Trump, a Republican.

Republican lawmakers said Sondland's testimony failed to prove that Trump had ordered or directed the pressure campaign against Ukraine.
