Taylor, Kent are not ‘Never Trumpers’: Darcy cartoon

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) accused President Trump of "bribery" when he dealt with Ukrainian leaders, despite a top Ukrainian official saying that US aid to Ukraine was not linked to their investigations of corruption in the country.

The career diplomat, who served both Republican and Democratic presidents, is expected to relay her striking story of being suddenly recalled by Donald Trump and told to "watch my back" in a swiftly developing series of events that sounded alarms about the White House's shadow foreign policy.

"Giuliani also conducted a smear campaign against the U.S. Ambassador to Ukraine Marie Yovanovitch", House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff said at the first public impeachment hearing earlier this week. She will be in the spotlight as the lone witness when public impeachment hearings resume for a second day. It revolves around Trump asking the Ukraine president for a "favour" in a July phone call. He wanted an investigation of Democrats and 2020 rival Joe Biden. After an anonymous Central Intelligence Agency employee filed a complaint about the call, Trump had the transcript declassified, which he has touted as evidence that shows he didn't pressure Ukraine into investigating former Vice President Joe Biden and his son, Hunter, who sat on the board of a Ukrainian energy company when his father served in office.

Jordan, on the other hand, clearly believes he already knows the identity of the whistleblower.

Democrats and Republicans are hardening their messages to voters, who are deeply entrenched in two camps.

During Day One of the House hearings, career diplomats William Taylor and George Kent delivered somber testimony about recent months. "As the news campaign, or campaign of slander, against not only Ambassador Yovanovitch unfolded. he was on TV, his Twitter feed ramped up and it was all focused on Ukraine".

"[U.S. Ambassador to the European Union Gordon] Sondland did not tell us, and certainly did not tell me, about a connection between the assistance and the investigations". The former NY mayor also has said that he told the president there were concerns among Trump supporters that she had displayed anti-Trump bias in private conversations.

"First I've heard of it", he said, brushing off the question at the White House. "She's going to go through some things". Lutsenko himself later backtracked.

The president flatly denies the latest revelations.

Marie Yovanovitch arrives at the U.S. Capitol on October 11. In response, Sondland encouraged her to tweet her support for Trump on social media.

Man who killed Uyinene sentenced to three life terms
The high court in Cape Town handed him three life sentences for rape and murder, and five years for defeating the ends of justice. Shortly after her murder, reports emerged that Ms Mrwetyana had been lured into the mail room of a post office in Cape Town.

"Thank you, I say to my colleague, I'd be glad to have the person who started it all come in and testify".

In his July 25 call with Zelensky, Trump said the following about Yovanovitch: "The former ambassador from the United States, the woman, was bad news and the people she was dealing with in the Ukraine were bad news so I just want to let you know that".

How far will Republicans take their attacks on Yovanovitch?

Now Yovanovitch, hardly a marquee name in Washington, finds herself thrust into the spotlight of just the fourth impeachment inquiry in USA history.

In particular, Yovanovitch and others have described Rudy Giuliani, Trump's personal lawyer, as leading what one called an "irregular channel" outside the diplomatic mainstream of U.S. -Ukraine relations.
