Acting Ukraine ambassador Bill Taylor signaled this week that he would be willing to testify in open hearings before House lawmakers conducting an impeachment inquiry.

In stunning behind-closed-doors testimony earlier this month, Taylor connected President Donald Trump and Rudy Giuliani to a scheme to have Ukraine investigate Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden.

A source told CNN that Taylor is now willing to testify publicly.

Democrats have said that they expect public hearings to begin in November.
