Three more witnesses are scheduled to testify Wednesday in the impeachment inquiry into President Donald Trump's request for Ukraine to pursue political investigations.Among them is U.S. Ambassador to the European Union Gordon Sondland, who has become a key figure because he is an ally of Trump, but also testified about demands for investigations that were made of Ukraine while military aid was withheld.
