In several hours of testimony, punctuated by occasional bickering among lawmakers, some memorable moments have emerged.
Hours before the hearing, Trump lashed out at Democrats, contending the deck is stacked against him.
Scenes from around the U.S. Capitol on Day 1 of the public impeachment hearings surrounding President Trump's communications with Ukraine:
William B. Taylor Jr., the acting ambassador to Ukraine, and George Kent, the deputy assistant secretary of state responsible for Ukraine will testify.
WASHINGTON (AP) — The Latest on the House impeachment inquiry of President Donald Trump (all times local):
In public hearings starting at 10 a.m. EST (9 a.m. CT) Wednesday, Democrats on the Intelligence Committee will try to make the case that Trump committed "high crimes and misdemeanors."
Big questions loom, including how strongly officials connected what Trump called that "favor" to U.S. military aid to Ukraine.
The witnesses will tell House investigators — and Americans tuning into the live public hearings — what they know about President Donald Trump's actions toward Ukraine, including the July phone call with President Volodymyr Zelenskiy that ignited the impeachment inquiry.
The hearings are likely to shed light on politicians, aides and oligarchs in Kyiv and their influence in Washington.
