Ron Johnson, the Senator With an Outsized Role in the Ukraine Saga
STR/NurPhoto/GettyAmong the 100 U.S. senators who could decide President Trump's fate in an impeachment trial, only one of them can claim to be a fact witness to the allegations at hand as much as they can claim to be a juror: Sen. Ron Johnson.

The two-term Wisconsin Republican chairs the Senate Foreign Relations Committee's panel on Europe, and as part of that role, he has been as engaged as anyone in Congress on matters involving Ukraine. As a result, he has become a go-to lawmaker for the White House for the region.

But in the issues at the heart of the House of Representatives' impeachment inquiry, Johnson has played an even more outsized role than his jurisdiction entails. The senator has been an inescapable presence in the Ukraine saga: Not only has he been present for several key events in the timeline of Trumpworld's apparent push to get Ukraine to investigate the Bidens, Johnson has also had personal conversations with many of the major figures involved, from Trump to Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky to U.S. Ambassador to the E.U. Gordon Sondland.

Gordon Sondland Stepped in ‘And Things Went Really Off the Rails'
Pablo Martinez MonsivaisUkrainian officials arrived at the White House on July 10 expecting something approaching normal. They were in Washington for a scheduled meeting with then-National Security Adviser John Bolton with a plan to propose a new path for U.S.-Ukrainian relations under the umbrella of energy and security cooperation. All seemed to go well—until U.S. Ambassador to the European Union Gordon Sondland stepped in. "That's when things really went off the rails," one person in the room said. 

It's been widely noted in testimonies by multiple House impeachment witnesses that Sondland interrupted the conversation between Bolton and the Ukrainians when he suggested that the Kyiv officials open investigations into Hunter Biden and the gas company he worked for if they wanted President Volodymyr Zelensky to land a White House meeting with Donald Trump. 

Bolton immediately cut the get-together short, witnesses said, in an attempt to save what had until then been a normal meeting. But what's been less clear—until now—is what happened moments later, when Sondland guided the Ukrainians into the White House's Ward Room. Three individuals familiar with the conversation described what happened next.
