President Trump lashed out anew at the Democrat-led impeachment inquiry Wednesday as Gordon Sondland, the most significant witness, acknowledged there was a “quid pro quo” in the Ukraine controversy in his prepared remarks.

In questioning, Sondland, the U.S. ambassador to the European Union, will be pressed about his knowledge of allegations that Trump sought to leverage U.S. military aid to Ukraine and a White House visit by its president, Volodymyr Zelensky, in exchange for investigations of former vice president Joe Biden and his son Hunter Biden, among others.

Two additional witnesses are scheduled for Wednesday afternoon: Laura Cooper, the special assistant secretary of defense for Russia and Ukraine; and David Hale, undersecretary of state for political affairs.

●Sondland: ‘Was there a quid pro quo? The answer is yes’.

●Trump said his Ukraine call was ‘perfect.’ Impeachment witnesses testified otherwise.

●Judge intends to rule by Monday on House subpoena to former White House counsel Donald McGahn.
