Sondland, a Trump appointee, said in his revised testimony that he spoke with Andriy Yermak, a top aide to the Ukrainian president, on Sept. 1 and said that the aid approved to Ukraine was contingent on a statement from Zelensky regarding the requested probes.

“After a large meeting, I now recall speaking individually with Mr. Yermak, where I said that resumption of U.S. aid would likely not occur until Ukraine provided the public anti-corruption statement that we had been discussing for many weeks,” Sondland said in the written testimony he submitted Monday.

According to Sondland, who submitted the revised testimony to the House Intelligence Committee through his attorney, other key witnesses' testimony "refreshed" his memory of the events.
