President Trump weighed-in Wednesday on Ambassador Sondland’s ongoing testimony; reading an excerpt where the diplomat confirms he was told there is “no quid pro quo” with the Ukraine.

“Just a quick comment on what’s going on with Ambassador Sondland, I just noticed one thing, and I would say that means it’s all over,” said Trump.

“’What do you want from Ukraine,’ he asks me… Trump told me, ‘I want nothing, I want nothing, I want No Quid Pro Quo, just tell Zelensky to do the right thing,” said the President before departing the White House.”

Ambassador Sondland spoke with the House Intelligence Committee’s impeachment inquiry Wednesday; saying President Trump never ordered any “pre-conditions” for the release of American aid to the Ukraine.

“No,” replied Sondland.

“Any pre-conditions for the aid to be released?” pressed the counsel.

Vice President Mike Pence’s office issued a fierce rebuke of Ambassador Sondland’s claims Wednesday; saying any conversation concerning withholding Ukraine aid and Hunter Biden “never” took place.

“The Vice President never had a conversation with Gordon Sondland about investigating the Bidens, Burisma, or the conditional release of financial aid to Ukraine based upon potential investigations,” Pence’s chief of staff, Marc Short, said in a statement.

“Multiple witnesses have testified under oath that Vice President Pence never raised Hunter Biden, former Vice President Joe Biden, Crowdstrike, Burisma, or investigations in any conversation with Ukrainians or President Zelensky before, during, or after the September 1 meeting in Poland,” Short said.
