DAY 4—November 20

On DAY 4 of the public testimony, the U.S. House Intelligence Committee scheduled a pair of hearings on Wednesday as part of Democrats' impeachment inquiry into President Donald Trump—one at 9:00 am ET featuring Gordon D. Sondland, the United States ambassador to the European Union, and another at 2:30 pm ET with Laura K. Cooper, the deputy assistant secretary of defense for Russian, Ukrainian, and Eurasian affairs as well as David Hale, the under secretary of state for political affairs.

The New York Times noted, "Mr. Sondland will most likely be the day's most consequential witness. He had direct contact with Mr. Trump, and has already informed the committee that he told a top Ukrainian official that the country would probably have to give Mr. Trump a public pledge for investigations before it would receive frozen military aid."

Earlier this month, as Common Dreams reported, Sondland provided House impeachment investigators with a three-page amendment to his original 10-hour testimony behind closed doors in October.

In Sondland's updated testimony, described by critics and reporters as a "bombshell" reversal, he appeared to confirm a quid pro quo which involved the Trump administration pressuring Ukraine to launch a politically advantageous probe into Burisma, an energy firm that employed Hunter Biden, son of former Vice President Joe Biden, one of Trump's rivals for the White House in 2020.

DAY 3—November 19

The third day of public hearings in the impeachment inquiry into President Donald Trump took place Tuesday as the Intelligence Committee in the U.S. House of Representatives heard testimony from four key witnesses over the course of two separate sessions, one in the morning and one later in the day.

In the afternoon, Ambassador Kurt Volker, former U.S. Special Envoy to Ukraine testified alongside Timothy Morrison, Special Assistant to the President and Senior Director for Europe and Russia at the National Security Council, testified before the committee.

In the morning, Lt. Col. Alexander Vindman and Jennifer Williams were the first to appear before the committe at a hearing that began at 9:00am ET.

Vindman and Williams are both high-ranking members of the White House national security team in the Trump White House.  Williams is a top aide to Vice President Mike Pence as special adviser for Europe and Russia in his office and Vindman is a member of the National Security Council official—director of European Affairs for the NSC and fluent in Ukraine. Both were on Trump's controversial July 25 call with Ukraine President Volodymyr Zelensky.

Based on previous sworn testimony, the New York Times reports "Williams said she found it 'unusual' because 'it involved discussion of what appeared to be a domestic political matter.' Vindman said he reported his concerns to his superiors 'out of a sense of duty.'"

DAY 2—November 15, 2019

Testifying on the second day of hearings—Friday, November 15, 2019—was former U.S. Ambassador to Ukraine Marie Yovanovitch.

Yovanovitch is acknowledged to be a key witness and figure regarding the Trump administration's effort to create a "shadow foreign policy" in which Trump's personal lawyer, Rudy Giuliani, was dispatched in an alleged effort to get the Ukraine government to initiate and publicly announce an investigation into the president's political rival Joe Biden and his son Hunter.

According to reporting by the New York Times, Yovanovitch "is expected to describe the personal trauma she endured as the administration's traditional diplomatic establishment in Ukraine collided with a rogue foreign policy operation run by Mr. Giuliani."

WATCH DAY 2 (Friday, November 15, 2019):

DAY 1—November 13

The two witnesses who testified on Day 1 of the hearings—Wednesday, November 13, 2019—both of whom gave prior sworn depositions in closed-door sessions with lawmakers—were Ambassador William B. Taylor, Chargé d'Affaires of the U.S. Embassy in Ukraine, as well as George Kent, Deputy Assistant Secretary of State for European and Eurasian Affairs.
