Earlier this week, House Democrats released Sondland's October testimony and revised testimony, in which Sondland appeared to admit there was a quid pro quo linking a public statement regarding the Bidens and Ukraine military aid, after earlier saying such a link didn't exist. Sondland — who Sen. Lindsey Graham has accused of working with Democratic operatives — donated $1 million to the president's inaugural fund. 

"I hardly know the gentleman," Mr. Trump told reporters on the South Lawn Friday morning, en route to fundraising engagements in Georgia.
