Impeachment investigators have launched closed-door testimony from a U.S. official in Ukraine who overheard a call between diplomat Gordon Sondland and President Donald Trump this summer time.
Transcripts have been launched late Monday from interviews with David Holmes, the diplomat who overheard the call, and from David Hale, the State Division’s No. three official.
Holmes is scheduled to testify publicly Thursday concerning the call. He instructed lawmakers behind closed doorways Friday that he overheard Sondland telling Trump that the president of Ukraine would do something that Trump needed, in line with remarks obtained by The Related Press. Trump was pushing Ukraine to research Democrats on the time.
Hale is scheduled to testify publicly Wednesday. He was questioned earlier this month concerning the elimination of the U.S. ambassador to Ukraine, Marie Yovanovitch.
