US Congress continues hearings on President Donald Trump's impeachment. The senior State Department official in charge of Ukraine, George Kent, testified about Trump's involvement in Ukraine's policy.
Kent 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, according to the text of Kent's testimony in the House of Representatives Committee, according to the Voice of America.
According to Kent, Lutsenko sought to remove Yovanovitch from her position by handing President Donald Trump's lawyer Rudy Giuliani information about her.
As a result, Marie Yovanovitch was dismissed from the post of ambassador, in addition to Lutsenko and former Prosecutor General Shokin, Kent also enlisted prosecutor Konstantin Kulyk, who met with Trump's lawyer Rudy Giuliani.
As we reported earlier, ex-Ambassador Yovanovitch was questioned in the Congress on October 11, 2019; former Senior Advisor to the Secretary of State Ambassador McKinley was questioned on October 16, 2019.
The publication of these documents became possible due to the adoption of the resolution on the formalizing procedures of impeachment on October 31.
