The second day off televised hearings in the House impeachment hearings on President Donald Trump begin at 6 AM PT. Watch the livestream here.
Rep. Adam Schiff (D-CA) chairs the House Intelligence Committee and will oversee the hearings, which are televised versions of closed-door testimony from recent weeks. The GOP contingent is led by fellow California Rep. Devin Nunes.
Today testimony will come from from former U.S. .Ambassador to the Ukraine Marie Yovanovitch. She will deliver an opening statement and then will be questioned in 45-minute blocks of time from each side. Each side can choose their respective counsels to do the questioning. That is a break from a typical hearing, in which members questioned witnesses in five-minute increments, alternating between Democrats and Republicans based on seniority. That still will happen — but it will only come later in the hearing.
The hearings continue next week. Tuesday will see testimony from Jennifer Williams, an aide to Vice President Mike Pence; Lt. Col. Alexander Vindman, an Army officer and Ukraine specialist on the National Security Council staff; Kurt Volker, the former special representative to Ukraine; and Tim Morrison, the top Russia and Europe adviser on Trump’s National Security Council. Wednesday it’s Gordon Sondland, the U.S. ambassador to the European Union; Laura Cooper, deputy assistant secretary of defense for Russia, Ukraine and Eurasia; and David Hale, the No. 3 official at the State Department.
Thursday’s guest before the House Intel Committee will be Fiona Hill, former National Security Council senior director for Europe and Russia.
