BREAKEND NEWS: Televised hearings begin NEXT WEEK as Adam Schiff says the current top diplomat in Ukraine who said there is a & # 39; quid pro quo & # 39; will testify first
Rep. Adam Schiff announced that the public phase of the democratic impeachment hearings will begin, with three key witnesses to appear next week.
As the first in a hearing involving three Democrat-led committees, Bill Taylor, the US top diplomat in Ukraine, will raise the alarm in internal reports about detaining US military assistants.
Taylor testified last month that he was told that US military security assistance to the country depended on Kiev and stated that they were investigating the Bidens and the 2016 elections.
His testimony was supported on Tuesday by EU ambassador Gordon Sondland, who testifies that he personally told a top Ukrainian official that the aid was likely dependent on a public statement about investigating corruption.
Among those who testify before the camera is Marie Yavanovich, the former US ambassador to Ukraine, who was pushed out of her post after a campaign to undermine her by Trump lawyer Rudy Giuliani.
Yavanonovich testified privately that she was never told why she was removed from her post.
The first witness to speak to the nation is Bill Taylor, the best US diplomat in Ukraine who wrote in a text message that he & # 39; crazy & # 39; to link American military support to that country to a political campaign investigation.
