In May, the White House appointed the team consisting of three people, the task of whose was to "outflank" the official U.S. politics relating to Ukraine. Deputy Assistant of the U.S. Secretary on Europe and Asia affairs George Kent stated that during testifying within the investigation of the U.S. Chamber of Democrats on Trump's impeachment procedure. NBC reported that.

"Acting White House chief of staff Mick Mulvaney appointed three other Trump administration officials to spearhead the president's efforts in Ukraine," the message says.

The Congress members did not request explanations from what he meant speaking about outflanking the official politics of the USA regarding Ukraine.

According to Rep. Gerry Connolly, D-Va., who was present for the deposition, Kent testified that Mulvaney oversaw a meeting where he sidelined State Department officials and tapped three political appointees — Energy Secretary Rick Perry, European Ambassador Gordon Sondland and special envoy Kurt Volker — to oversee Ukraine policy for the United States.

Kent, a deputy assistant secretary of state who worked on Ukraine and five other countries, told congressional investigators that the trio called themselves “the three amigos” and elbowed all the other officials at State out of the way, according to Connolly.

George Kent is the fourth witness in Trump's impeachment investigation. The Congressmen have already heard ex-Special Representative on Ukraine's Affairs Kurt Volker, ex-Ambassador in Ukraine Marie Yovanovich and President Donald Trump’s former Russia adviser Fiona Hill.
