Former U.S. Ambassador to Ukraine Marie Yovanovitch arrives on Capitol Hill to appear before lawmakers in closed-door questioning for the House Intelligence Committee, relating to the impeachment inquiry into President Trump, in Washington, D.C., on Oct. 11.

When the U.S. ambassador to Ukraine was abruptly removed from her post earlier this year, some Democratic lawmakers called it "a political hit job." Now the congressman in charge of the impeachment inquiry into President Trump is making the case that Marie Yovanovitch's ouster is part of the story of a president abusing his power in relations with Ukraine.

Yovanovitch will be the sole witness Friday, the second day of the inquiry's public hearings over whether Trump used military aid as leverage to pressure Ukraine into investigations that would benefit him politically.
