A short note about my thoughts on high-technology contact tracing: https://medium.com/@hbsnmyj/be-careful-with-high-tech-contact-tracing-1567b9972216

And Sondland's line was he _presumed_ a condition for the meetings, etc. So he had goodwill but was ignorant. Both are carefully chosen positions. But Volker's explanation has a larger wiggle room.
