BREAKING: In public testimony at the House impeachment hearings, former U.S. ambassador to Ukraine Marie Yovanovitch said she felt threatened when she read how President Trump talked about her to his Ukrainian counterpart on a July 25 call.

Yovanovitch said she was “shocked” and “devastated” that Trump, who called her “bad news,” said she was “going to go through some things.” This is a developing story and will be updated.

President Trump released a transcript of an April call with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky on Friday, as the House Intelligence Committee heard public testimony from Marie Yovanovitch, a former ambassador to Ukraine who was recalled earlier this year.

Yovanovitch testified that she was the target of a “campaign of disinformation” that involved Trump’s personal attorney Rudolph W. Giuliani and included “unofficial back channels.”

Friday afternoon, David Holmes, a staff member of the U.S. Embassy in Ukraine, is scheduled to appear for a closed-door deposition. He is said to have overheard a call in which Trump sought information about investigations that could benefit him politically.

Democrats are seeking to build a case that Trump sought to withhold military assistance and an Oval Office meeting until Zelensky announced investigations into former vice president Joe Biden and his son, as well as an unfounded theory that Ukrainians interfered in the 2016 presidential election to hurt Trump.

Impeachment: What you need to read

Updated November 15, 2019

Here’s what you need to know to understand the impeachment inquiry into President Trump.

What’s happening now: The House is holding public impeachment hearings. Marie Yovanovitch, former ambassador to Ukraine, is testifying; more witnesses are scheduled for next week.

This follows closed-door hearings and subpoenaed documents related to the president’s July 25 phone call with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky. Lawmakers’ inquiry could lead to impeachment, which would mean the U.S. House thinks the president is no longer fit to serve and should be removed from office. Here’s a guide to how impeachment works.

How we got here: House Speaker Nancy Pelosi announced the beginning of an official impeachment inquiry against President Trump on Sept. 24, 2019. Here’s what has happened since then.
