We will be publishing that live content on the web for you to see.
Former Ukraine Marie Yovanovitch was removed by the president earlier this year. Now she’s a key witness for democrats as they try to build their case for impeachment.
Marie Yovanovich is expected to appear on capitol hill Friday, two days after acting Ukraine ambassador William Taylor and deputy assistant secretary of state George Kent both testified.
She’s expected to address of range of democratic concerns, including an alleged smear campaign against her by members of president Trump’s inner circle.
“I became alarmed as those efforts bore fruit. They led to the ouster of ambassador Yovanovich.”
“the former ambassador Masha Yovanovich has been treated poorly, caught in a web of political machinations both in Kiev and in Washington.”
Yovanovitch is a key witness for democrats, as they try to prove president trump withheld military aid to Ukraine, in exchange for dirt on his political rivals.
But Republicans say the president was just trying to root out corruption in Ukraine.
“no pressure, no demands, no threats, no blackmail, nothing corrupt.”
Yovanovitch is the last person to testify this week, eight others are scheduled to appear next week for public testimony.
Tuesday morning will feature Jennifer Williams (a state department official advising the vice president’s office) And lt. Col. Alexander Vindman (a national security council staffer).
The afternoon will feature Kurt Volker (the former us special representative to Ukraine) And Tim Morrison (a national security council staffer).
