The second day of public hearings on Friday began the same way as the first: with an attempt by Rep. Elise Stefanik, a New York Republican, to interrupt proceedings with a procedural objection. Stefanik accused House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff, D-Calif., of shutting down Republican questions, prompting Schiff to bang his gavel and declare her objection out of order. Stefanik again engaged in theatrics later in the hearing, forcing Schiff to gavel down her attempt to break the rules of the hearing and ask questions of the witness before it was her turn.

Behind her, in a stately House hearing room, members of the media and the public sat riveted as Marie Yovanovitch, the former U.S. ambassador to Ukraine, described how she was removed from her post because she was seen as standing in the way of political concessions President Trump wanted to allegedly wrest from the new presidential administration in Kyiv.

WASHINGTON—The highest ranking civil servant at the White House budget office is expected to appear before the congressional impeachment panel on Saturday, providing testimony that could potentially shed light on how Trump administration officials withheld aid from Ukraine in an alleged effort to influence the 2020 U.S. presidential election.

Amid attacks from Trump, former U.S. ambassador to Ukraine testifies to influence from 'foreign corrupt interests'
A former U.S. ambassador to Ukraine testified Friday in the second public impeachment hearing, amid real-time attacks by President Trump himself, that she was the victim of a dishonest smear campaign in which one of the president's personal lawyers worked with corrupt Ukrainian officials to remove her from her position earlier this year. The public hearings are part of an investigation led by Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff, D-Calif., into whether the full House should vote on articles of impeachment and recommend to the Senate that it hold a trial to determine whether the president is guilty of "treason, bribery, or other high crimes and misdemeanors," as outlined in Article 2, Section 4 of the U.S. Constitution.

Key Democrat: House needs to 'keep this simple' in crafting impeachment articles

In meticulous detail, the career diplomat explained his concerns about withholding aid from Ukraine "for no apparent reason." Taylor testified he eventually came to understand how Trump's personal lawyer Rudy Giuliani was running an "irregular policy channel" with its own agenda, not immediately apparent to career diplomats like Taylor who were not accustomed to interference from political operatives.
