The former U.S. ambassador to Ukraine will be in the spotlight on Friday when she testifies at the second day of televised impeachment hearings, Reuters reports.

George Kent, who testified about Trump's involvement in Ukraine's policy, stated that ex-Prosecutor General Yuriy Lutsenko wanted revenge on former US Ambassador to Ukraine Marie Yovanovitch. He also said that so-called "porohobots" were actively involved in the campaign against the ex-ambassador.

Meanwhile, Rudy Giuliani conducted a “campaign full of lies” against the U.S. ambassador to Ukraine before she was recalled from her post, according to the transcript of Kent's testimony.

Eventually, Marie Yovanovitch was dismissed from the post of ambassador.

As we reported earlier, House of Representatives of the U.S. Congress has approved the resolution on formalizing the procedures that are necessary to impeach President Donald Trump. Reuters reported that on October 31.

"Democrats in the U.S. House of Representatives secured enough votes on Thursday to pass legislation setting up next steps in the fast-moving impeachment process involving Republican President Donald Trump", the news agency reported.
