The first public hearing in the House of Representative’s impeachment inquiry into President Donald Trump begins on Wednesday morning at 7 a.m. PT/10 a.m. ET. U.S. Ambassador to Ukraine William Taylor and Deputy Assistant Secretary of State George Kent will be testifying in front of the House Intelligence Committee.
In addition to broadcasts from the major television networks, you can tune into the hearing via the above livestream on C-SPAN. The network will offer “full, uninterrupted, and unfiltered coverage of the hearing,” according to an announcement from a C-SPAN spokesperson.
In September, Speaker Nancy Pelosi announced that the House of Representatives would be pursuing a formal impeachment inquiry into Trump.
The decision came in light of a whistleblower complaint that the president sought to use foreign power for his own political gain during a phone call with Ukraine’s president, Volodymyr Zelensky, by asking that Ukraine investigate the son of former Vice President Joe Biden. The president later confirmed that his administration withheld nearly $400 million in aid to Ukraine but denied that it was done for leverage.
Last month, the House of Representatives approved a resolution that formalized the inquiry and outlined the public-facing portion of the impeachment inquiry, which includes Wednesday’s hearing.
The next public hearing is scheduled for Friday and will focus on testimony from the former U.S. Ambassador to Ukraine Marie Yovanovitch.
