Knowledge of Trump-Ukraine 'scheme' was far and wide: Schiff

During opening remarks on Wednesday, Schiff said the Intelligence Committee has not received a single document from the State Department and said "those documents bear directly on this investigation and this impeachment inquiry." A U.S. diplomat who is a key witness in the impeachment inquiry into President Donald Trump said on Wednesday he worked with Trump's personal attorney Rudy Giuliani on Ukraine issues on "the President's orders." Gordon Sondland, the U.S. ambassador to the European Union, said in prepared remarks to the investigation that Giuliani's efforts to push Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskiy for investigations into Trump's political rivals "were a quid pro quo for arranging a White House visit" for the Ukrainian leader.

Quid pro quo is a Latin term meaning a favor exchanged for a favor.
