U.S. House Intelligence Committee

The U.S. House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence, the House Committee on Oversight and Reform and the House Committee on Foreign Affairs release the transcripts of the first two closed-door depositions in the impeachment inquiry into President Donald Trump. The testimonies are that of former Ambassador to Ukraine Marie Yovanovitch and former Ambassador to Brazil Michael McKinley. Yovanovitch said she felt threatened by President Trump, while McKinley said that he resigned from his position because he was concerned about "the engagement of our missions to procure negative political information for domestic purposes," something he says he had never observed the State Department try to take part in throughout his career, with the exception of the Trump administration.
