WHITE HOUSE — The House Intelligence Committee held its second public hearing in the impeachment inquiry with a testimony from former U.S. Ambassador to Ukraine Marie “Masha” Yovanovitch.
Yovanovitch was removed from her position in May after what she described as a “concerted campaign” against her that she claims was led by President Donald Trump and his personal lawyer Rudy Giuliani.
The House of Representatives impeachment inquiry centers around whether Trump used this power of his presidency to solicit a foreign government to influence the 2020 U.S. election.
Specifically, he is accused of asking Ukraine President Volodymyr Zelensky in a July 25 phone call to investigate former Vice President Joe Biden, now running for president, while withholding nearly $400 million in military aid approved by Congress.
Who’s On The Committee Doing The Questioning?
There are 13 Democrats and nine Republicans. The Democrats include: Schiff, Eric Swalwell of California, Joaquin Castro of Texas, Jim Homes of Connecticut, Terri Sewell of Alabama, Andre Carson of Indiana, Jackie Speier of California, Mike Quigley of Illinois, Denny Heck of Washington, Peter Welch of Vermont, Sean Patrick Maloney of New York, Val Demings of Florida and Raja Krishnamoorthi of Illinois.
The Republicans include: Devin Nunes of California, John Ratcliffe of Texas, Jim Jordan of Ohio, Michael Turner and Brad Wenstrup of Ohio, Chris Stewart of Utah, Elise Stefanik of New York and Mike Conway and Will Hurd of Texas.
