READ IT: Impeachment inquiry releases full testimony of ex-ambassadors Marie Yovanovitch and Michael McKinley

The House impeachment inquiry on Monday released the full transcripts of former U.S. Ambassador to Ukraine Marie Yovanovitch and former Senior Advisor to the Secretary of State Ambassador P. Michael McKinley.

“As we move towards this new public phase of the impeachment inquiry, the American public will begin to see for themselves the evidence that the committees have collected. With each new interview, we learn more about the President’s attempt to manipulate the levers of power to his personal political benefit," said Democratic Reps. Adam B. Schiff, Eliot L. Engel, and Carolyn Maloney in a joint statement.

“The transcripts of interviews with Ambassadors Yovanovitch and McKinley demonstrate clearly how President Trump approved the removal of a highly respected and effective diplomat based on public falsehoods and smears against Ambassador Yovanovitch’s character and her work in support of long-held U.S. foreign policy anticorruption goals."
