“It is a perfect day for a nice bottle of this. These people are — insane....,” Trump tweeted Wednesday, along with a photo of a bottle of wine from the Trump Winery in Virginia. 

Sondland testified before lawmakers Wednesday that there was indeed a quid pro quo for Ukraine launching politically motivated investigations and securing a meeting between Trump and Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky. He added that the connection was known among Trump administration officials. 


“I know that members of this committee have frequently framed these complicated issues in the form of a simple question: Was there a ‘quid pro quo?’ As I testified previously, with regard to the requested White House call and White House meeting, the answer is yes,” Sondland said in his opening statement.

Eric Trump also tweeted a clip from Wednesday's hearing, in which Sondland recounted a Sept. 9 conversation he had with Trump, during which Trump told the ambassador, “I want nothing. I want nothing. I want no quid pro quo” from Ukraine in exchange for politically motivated investigations. The allegation is at the heart of House Democrats' impeachment inquiry.
