Ken Starr, the former solicitor general who headed the investigation 
that led to the impeachment of former President Bill Clinton, called 
Wednesday's testimony by U.S. Ambassador to the European Union Gordon 
Sondland "obviously ... one of those bombshell days."

Speaking on Fox News, Starr agreed with the hosts that things now do not 
"look good for the president substantively." Sondland's testimony, Starr 
said, confirmed that there was a quid pro quo between Trump's 
administration and the Ukrainian government — which would be "bribery," 
in the jargon of impeachment. Sondland also said that the orders to push 
Kyiv to open an investigation into Trump's political rivals had come 
directly from the Oval Office.
