The House Intelligence Committee’s first impeachment hearing has ended after more than five hours of testimony.
State Department officials William Taylor and George Kent testified about their concerns with President Donald Trump’s requests that Ukraine investigate Democrats as the U.S. withheld military aid to the country.
Democrats are investigating those requests, and whether they were linked, as they move toward an impeachment vote.
Republicans said the witnesses didn’t have firsthand knowledge and noted the aid was eventually released. The U.S. government released the money after pressure from senators in early September.
Next up will be former U.S. Ambassador to Ukraine Marie Yovanovitch, who was ousted in May on Trump’s orders. She will testify Friday.
Next week, the House Intelligence Committee will hear from eight more witnesses in the impeachment probe.
