Impeachment is getting up close and personal.
The House Intelligence Committee will hold its first public impeachment hearings next week, committee chair Rep. Adam Schiff (D-Calif.) announced Wednesday. Former top Ukraine diplomat William Taylor and current Europe adviser George Kent will testify Wednesday, Nov. 13, and ex-U.S. ambassador to Ukraine Marie Yovanovitch will testify Friday, Nov. 15.
Taylor reportedly provided some of the most damning testimony against President Trump in his closed-door impeachment hearing last month, describing a quid pro quo between Trump and Ukraine. Yovanovitch meanwhile used her closed-door testimony to detail how Trump pushed her out based on Rudy Giuliani's "unfounded and false claims," and how she felt threatened by Trump at times.
